|This weekend I visited the excellent Les Lalanne exhibition at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris (untill July 10, 2010). An exhibition of animal statues with a function, that should (but could not) be touched, made by a French sculptor couple. Beautiful design, from the leather rhino-shaped couch to the rocking chair robin and the baboon fireplace. Absolutely worth a visit (as well as the stylish and affordable Mama Shelter hotel). Exhibit design Peter Marino.
