QEEBOO RABBIT CHAIRS

There is also the Rabbit Lamp, which is the same size as the Rabbit Chair Baby and functions as a light.
Price: $238 for the Rabbit Chair Baby, $460 for the Rabbit Chair and $410 for the Rabbit Lamp

In 1959, Turkish designer and painter Sadi Ozis faced a lack of material. So he got innovative and wove fishnets between a bent tubular steel framework to create a sleek, wide-meshed armchair on slender legs.
The classic piece was reissued in Milan by German furniture manufacturer Walter Knoll. The updated version – Ozis worked on it with his son Neptun – features an upholstered seat and back. In Singapore, it comes in red upholstery and a steel, powder-coated black matt frame.
Muuto adds some edge to regular shelving. Folded Shelves, created by Rotterdam-based designer Johan van Hengel for the Danish company, have a slot worked into the design so you can display letters or books.
Made from acrylic powder-coated steel, each shelf also has two black metal hooks. It comes in four colours and three sizes. The shelves will be in-store in mid-December.
Price: From $189 for the small versionto $300 for the large version
