The results of interdisciplinary design collaborations are often quite compelling aesthetically and functionally. Take a look at the HAY Kaleido collection. Together with Clara von Zweigbergk, the firm has rethought conventional domestic accessories by exploring form and color for the purposes of practicality and aesthetics.
The geometric steel plates are particularly playful, taking assorted sizes of hexagons and diamonds that can be overlapped and pieced together. The items would make enchanting decorative arrangements and prove remarkably useful for laying out food or miscellaneous possessions.
A few office-appropriate pieces can also be found in the HAY Kaleido collection. A selection of bookends, boxes, paper trays and pen holders would help to keep your desktop organized and introduce a few splashes of color from a 1950s palette.
