Vancouver-based furniture-maker Mario Sabljak derives the aesthetic for his elegant-but-edgy custom creations from contemporary music and high-fashion runway shows.
There are elements of punk rock with a twist of Alexander McQueen (Sabljak was particularly inspired by the designer's posthumous retrospective, Savage Beauty, at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art).
Everything is rebellious and amped up – but highly stylish. A minimal, softly glowing floor lamp covered in spiky metal studs, for example, or tables that blend seemingly incongruous materials such as wood and Plexiglas.
His Knockout cabinet looks as though it could have been pulled from Grace Jones's dressing room. It has lipstick-red doors and knuckle-duster pulls. Like the singer/model/Bond Girl herself, it's a little bit sinister, a little bit sexy and impossible to turn away from.
