Item description for Stallinga: This Is Our Logo by Murray Moss & Erik Viskil...
Everything is possible In the world of award-winning Dutch designer Henk Stallinga. A sponge can become a vase, a business card can be used as a knife and fork, and almost anything can become a clock, a chair, an electric light. It's a familiar world, almost logical, but not quite. If museums exist to present objects that will stimulate us to thought, then this inspiring collection of Stallinga's work is a museum in itself. These objects appeal to our cognitive senses and have so much to say indirectly about our world that they give us a glimpse of truth. They subvert the basic tenet of 'form follows function' by discovering, within iconic forms, new functions that are totally unrelated to the original purpose.
Several works, including Handbag Annie and Coathammer Jut are in the permanent collection of the SFMOMA.
