“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill

Yes – the sound when you pop a champagne cork (or the sound when you see great design).  The Bouchon chair designed by Andrea Radice and Folco Orlandini is a winner, it won the international 2013 Good Design Award, and rightly so – it’s simply clever.  Obviously modeled after the iconic champagne cork, the cork seat sits in the metal legs without the need for screws, which takes advantage of the natural friction of the material, just like a real champagne cork.  I haven’t found anyone selling these (yet)
