A couple of new Spiros ashtrays (a spare yellow and a black one) Still looking for and orange/red and white ! Drop me a mess if you can "help" ! :))
And please no comment on my white pool ball ... ;) For 5$ the spare yellow i could not be too demanding !
Introducing the little family ! All designed by Emma Gismondi Schweinberger for Artemide in 1966, you have 3 different size and use, the small are pencil older(dedalino), the middle are flower vases (dedalotto), and the large are umbrella older (dedalo). The vases are pretty hard to find (i guess it wasn't a succes back then ... ). Received just this morning yellow and green dedalinos from Australia, white, red black and white dedalinos are from Spain and the 2 dedalottos arrived last week from Japan !! Damn ... what a trip ! I think that Teddy Qui Dit (http://www.flickr.com/photos/teddy_qui_dit/page1/ ) would agree with me saying that yellow and green was not produce in europe but only in Australia (a bit like Joe Colombo's KD28 that you can find over there in much more colors !).

Got some fun dedalos from a closing office monthes ago ... don't even know if i have a single umbrella ! Years ago i bought the Stacy Dukes yellow child stool for 2 $ ! this color is just unfindable and it's made of fiberglass ! A mystery ....
No need to introduce this classic ! I really wanted to buy a vintage one (i love stuffs with a past and history), this is the little one (UTENSILO2).
If you want to get one, you gotta know that the Vitra reissue is the exact copy (with signature ....) Got a precise look at it in a shop in Paris ... this is great work really !
Designed by Angelo Mangiarotti, these SECTICON clocks are just awesome ! From 1966, there design was so much "avant garde" ! There are several models, but i really think this one is the best (H:24cm) ! And pretty heavy too .... Sadly very hard to find, but worth the "time" ! :))
Yep, these are not shadows ... but real vintage dirt !!
After almost 15 years of research i've finally managed to grab these swiveling babies ! For quite an honest price actually ! After about 16 hours of cleaning, restoring and searching for new cushions, they are back in business for another 50 years ! And you best believe i'm gonna take extra good care of these beauties !! :)
Uncle F, i owe you one ....
