Stars Above Desk Lamp is a take on 2011's We Are Made of Stars LED Floor Lamp. The colors and form is a nice nod to Memphis.
If the pegboard flooring didn't tip you off, Core77 fave Joseph Ribic of Cleveland-based Objeti takes pride in the hands-on crafting process for his furniture. For 2012's ICFF, Objeti debuted a collection that explores familiar archetypes of Americana.
Objeti's Windsor Chair is a subtle take on that American classic and the Shaker tradition of woodworking. The spindles that make up the back of the chair gently slope into a comfortable seat.
Ribic demonstrates the opening action of his new side table. It has a multi-tiered hinge opening that was inspired by old school sewing boxes and fishing tackle boxes.
This outdoor table utilizes a wood-plastic composite to create an interesting geometric pattern. Collaboration between Objeti x Mark Moskovitz of Fiftytwothousand.
After packing and shipping large furniture and lighting pieces, Ribic decided it was time to design something that would be easy to handle and, more importantly, ship. The result is a topographic ring that commemorates active mines found around the United States.
Although Objeti is a Slovenian word meaning embrace, there's nothing more American than a family-run business —the design/build company is a family affair with Joseph designing, his brother John Jr. as production manager and dad John Sr. as production engineer.
