the ever talented hella jongerius‘ table “grenouille“ for galerie kreo in paris depicts a life size human or mythical size frog dipped in blue enamel. i dont think i would appreciate dining with the frog everyday but i appreciate her whimsy. the combination of the frog and the simple table form reminded me of droog’s “godogan” table– a minimal walnut plank table that has a been hand carved to illustrate an indonesian fairy tale about a frog that turns into a prince. the amazingly intricate design which is hand crafted in indonesia is continued across the table top as a laser etching. pretty amazing, right?
