When it comes to at-home exercise, one does not really think about weight designs as contributors to the overall aesthetic of the home. The pure functionality of the piece alone is enough to stimulate purchase. Designers Candice Blanc and Ulysse Martel, however, elevate the concept of at-home exercise through a set of appealing weight designs that are coated with iridescent lacquer, fostering a strong visual impact.

A part of a collection dubbed 'Olympia,' the objects can be used by consumers to get in shape or as sculptural home decor. The weight designs include a two-hand dumbbell, a pair of push-up bars and a trio of free weights. Individuals are able to connect or stack the objects, in order to create a small but attention-captivating home decor piece.
