Taking 'fly on the wall' to the next level.

Front Design has some pretty bizarre art/products. Check the projects section to see tables, chairs, and lamp shades, among other things, made from the interaction of animals/insects/reptiles with the environment. {flash}

The design by section has items designed by gravity, pressure, sunlight, explosion, etc.

Very nice, dobbs. I also had a look at the "news" section, where you can see many of these items put together in a room display for a Milan exhibition. Fun.

[This is good]

I like the "high pressure" treated coffee table made from sticks and twigs, and the bark beetle etched pieces. I always liked how a fallen log with some intricate beetle beetle tracks looked, but could never think about how to really apply it to something. The CAD lampshade made from the motion-captured track of a fly is sweet, too.

love this stuff! thanks! The fly lamp, and the design by things especially.

loquacious' list pretty much summed it up for me.

The rat wallpaper was pretty weak, though. Technically cool, but decoratively not.
