The Dinosaur Designs Modern Tribal collection is endlessly charming. As chic and sophisticated as the pieces truly are, there is a childlike element that brings another level of interpretation to the name of the industrial design studio. Although it refers to the inspiration behind its designs, which includes the ocean, ancient jewelry, ceramics and tools as well as African tribal jewelry, it also brings to mind cute cartoons and imaginative indulgences.

The fact that the objects and furniture making up the Dinosaur Designs Modern Tribal collection do have a cartoonish appeal to them really solidifies this second interpretation. From multi-legged side tables to smooth abstract chess pieces and colorblocked dishware, the designs are creative and endearing.

The Dinosaur Designs Modern Tribal collection was created in Australia by Louise Olsen & Stephen Ormandy.
