Tembolat Gugkaev

From Russian industrial designer Tembolat Gugkaev comes a line of unique, and most definitely quirky, furniture and housewares. He has an uncommon way of looking at things and throws in an unexpected twist that gives each piece a fresh and super fun feel.

While most designs are in the concept phase, he is currently looking for manufacturers to partner with. In the meantime, many of the pieces are for sale on his website.
