Light up the night
From Belgian-Dutch design trailblazers, Job Smeets and Nynke Tynagel of Studio Job, the popular Mexico stool and coffee table also now comes in an outdoor LED version.
A full charge gives you 6 hours of spooky fun, with a remote to control various colours and lighting permutations via remote control. Use it as a functional and humorous statement piece for the patio, balcony, as well as indoors in the living room and bedroom.
Its playful form brings to mind the iconic festival Día de Muertos, and the sides and back are adorned with pop-art styled symbols of Mexican culture such as hearts, snakes, swords and roses.
Job says he was inspired by a legendary figure who lived wrapped in mystery: 'the singer without a name'.
"No one had ever seen her come out of her house, where heavy velvet curtains hid her from the eyes of the curious. The inscrutable singer was the author of a great musical success entitled, in fact, Mexico ". (Job Smeets)
The result is a story that plays down on what scares us most, death, meaning that it cancels the features of the face and transforms it into something else.
Decorated with the graphic pattern of the Mexican skull, a symbol born to exorcize death and celebrate life, it becomes an ironic design statement for the home.
