The work of industrial designer Misha Kahn, who is based in Brooklyn, New York, could be likened to that of fashion designer Jeremy Scott and artist Jeff Koon. He explores childlike creations such as those that have elevated his peers' careers. Whether that entails actual cartoonish designs or a mishmash of oddball inspiration, designer Misha Kahn doesn't focus on the sky as his limit.

Currently producing a series of lamps for a room made by Bjarne Melgaard for the Whitney Biennial, designer Misha Kahn has made waves on the Internet with his use of experimental materials, asymmetrical shapes and eerie motifs. He reveals, "I'm hoping to help infuse the material culture with a little more looseness and an easier, more accessible way of making things."
