CB2 has been carving a path for itself as being affordable, hip and sophisticated, AND many of its designs lately seem drawn from other sources, where they usually cost a great deal more. Here is a short list of some nice new designs and the ones that seem to have inspired them. Design imitation is a big issue in the design community, but I'm not choosing sides, just mapping the territory.


>> Array Bookcase for $189
>> Sapien Bookcase for $198 from DWR

>> Graph Desk for $299
>> Desk 51 from BluDot for $699

>> Industry Pendant Lamp for $199
>> Cecilie Manz's Caravaggio Pendant for $725

>> Swoop Desk for $299
>> George Nelson's Swag Leg desk for $1,850 from Herman Miller
