The Motley collection. Designed by Samuel Chan fir Wildspirit.
These drums made from a solid block of wood "show innovation in function, technique and form." By gently curving the top of Motley, Chan has formed a pouf that's comfortable to sit on. Motley can also be used as a side or coffee table. Constructed of either birch or cedar, the multipurpose unit can be used inside or out, depending on the wood you choose--cedar works equally well for interior and exterior uses, going so far as to "keep the insects away." With models available in 40, 60, and 80-cm diameters, the Motley collection offers lots of possibilities. Given its namesake, which means heterogeneous, varied, or mixed, Motley should be flexible, versatile, and adaptable--which it is. Use the tall Motley as a pedestal to showcase a piece of sculpture, the wide Motley to accommodate unexpected guests, and the medium Motley to hold an artistic table lamp (Orchid and Miconos might do the trick).
