I fell hard for the Potential For Collapse collection created by Axel Yberg of Akke Functional Art. Each one-of-a-kind piece looks to be delicately put together and ready to topple at any moment, but is in fact, very sturdy and carefully constructed. Walking a fine line between art and design, these pieces are made to “represent the delicate nature of the human psyche and the inherent risks involved in taking chances — as well as the great rewards that come from successfully pursuing one’s dreams.” Amen to that!
