The Glory Holes table by Beirut designer Richard Yasmine, features a solid statuario marble top that rests on eight handmade, turned and polished brass, dildo shaped supports in various widths and lengths and a circular metal base.
The piece can be used as a low table, a sculptural piece, or a base for a larger table top if turned upside down.

Tokyo design studio Spread has used industrial materials to create minimal CD packaging for Japanese rock band Soutaiseiriron and American producer Jeff Mills’ track Spectrum.
The casing is made from a solid square slab of metal with the CD housed in a cut-out circular section whilst a single metal bolt attached to the centre of the packaging keeps the CD and a circular plastic protective cover in place. The whole thing is wrapped in a plastic bubblewrap envelope, which is labelled with a yellow and black sticker – designed to mimic the caution warnings often found on industrial products.
