There are certain things that people have simply begun to take for granted such as the fact that dumbbell weights are often crafted out of metal and hanging baskets have a three dimensional appearance from all angles; the Extra-Ordinary Gallery is working to change those assumptions. The Extra-Ordinary Gallery "is a collection of ordinary objects designed by a team of Fabrica’s designers who used traditional Italian materials like marbles of Canova and Murano glasses interpreted in a new and international way—all made in Italy," as succinctly written by Design Milk.

From paper-like clocks to shadow-like shelves, the Extra-Ordinary Gallery is chock full of ordinary objects that aren't so ordinary any more. They are currently for sale at Fabrica's online shop. Stats for Italian-Made Everyday Objects Trending: Older & Buzzing
