Egg Life

egg design

Welcome to the fourth installment of my egg series!  Life is great for fans of the egg!  Lots of designy things take inspiration from the egg and why not?!  We all started out in an egg, of sorts, and what better way to evoke a feeling of comfort and security. There are a lot of very literal interpretations out there which I tried to stay away from although it was hard!

I think all these egg designs look futuristic and familiar at the same time!  What do you think?  Are you drawn to the egg?  Please share!

    • You’ve been there?! It looks so cool!
      The bed is a bit strange like something you might see in a futuristic movie. On the website it describes a sleep experience with sound etc. I think it would be interesting to try it out : )

    • Thanks Elisa! I think it would be fun to buy for a new home and sprinkle in some design classics like that chair!
