Matryoshka dolls, also known as Russian nesting dolls, have inspired a number of creative stacking innovations. From matryoshka couture to giant matryoshka invaders, you'll see how this basic child's toy has been adapted into a number of very adult manifestations.
My favorite are the color-changing Matryoshka lamps, which provide a geeky modern alternative to a retro lava lamp. Which is your favorite?
Implications - Many designers are looking towards ethnicities to provide one-of-a-kind pieces that are fresh and exciting to shoppers. By incorporating cultural images, designers display a modern but traditional aesthetic that most may not have been exposed to. This approach displays the brand's international taste and their open minds when it comes to looking for inspiration.
