Pick-up Sticks



The Satellite bowl is as fun to play with as it is to ogle—the long, lacquered wooden spokes fold up to stand in narrow formation for quick storage and easily descend again like shooting stars into (interactive) abstract sculpture mode. Italian architect Carlo Contin, a veteran interior designer who later embarked on his own studio work in Milan, intended for the bowl to create a minimalistic geometric form that could double as a design object and centerpiece. It does that and triples as a high-end toy. Distributed by The Museum of Modern Art. Available at The Store Ltd. in black, red and white—and small (7”x15”) and large (9”x18½”) sizes, $41-$51.
