Humor and Innovation from Reddish Studio

The new designs from Reddish Studio remind us how a dose of humor combined with innovation can yield truly stunning results. Naama Steinbock and Idan Friedman, the Israeli designers behind Reddish, are known for turning traditional design concepts on their heads. The aluminum Dov stool, modeled on a block of styrofoam, is no exception. We love the contrast between the sleek, clean surface and the nubbly texture beneath. See more from Reddish after the jump…

The Louis 900 table lamps use antique table and chair legs from various periods to prop up contemporary minimalist fixtures.

This table, the Prima Ballerina, is from an older collection, but we couldn't resist tossing it in. The traditional "turned" leg is actually fashioned by adding material instead of carving it away; layers of thread coiled around a pole create the curves.

Reddish gained prominence in 2006, when this tattooed table won an IMM award in Cologne. The "tattoo" is digitally printed on the veneer.
