Buddy by Bao-Nghi Droste is a Hybrid Dish and Sitting Object, Acting as a Table

Looking at Buddy by Bao-Nghi Droste, I can't help but think of Marcel Duchamp's incongruous sculptures that combine found objects to render each unusable. While this may be one initial reaction to this pair of playful furnishings, the overall creation is anything but redundant.

It's actually quite easy to enjoy the curious compound quality of these pieces. The stool-like items function quite well as elevated storage bowls for assorted possessions and, as such, they would become effective side tables, flower pot holders and more. The stilted dishes would prove to be useful if placed in a front foyer, poised to receive wallets, keys and phones as occupants reenter their residence.

But speaking purely aesthetically, each Buddy by Bao-Nghi Droste makes an elegant piece of art. The marriage of smooth powder-coated aluminum with bare wooden legs composes a paradoxical awkwardness and grace. Stats for Three-Legged Bowls Trending: Older & Mild
