Offering virtually nothing in terms of commentary, this doorstop of a book lets the objects-from functional everyday pieces to examples of high art-speak for themselves. With an emphasis on sleek, contemporary designs that favor functionality over ornamentation, many of the pieces offer a new take on everyday items, such as BKM's ""Falb,"" a chair with a raised, built-in notch on the backrest for hanging a bag. There are a handful of quirky items such as Barney Bradford's reworking of commercial porcelain pieces, which yields a headless horseman and a creepy were-rabbit, and Puff_Buff's transparent, light-up bikini, but the focus is on function dictating form. The lack of text showcases most objects' utility, but in some cases the purpose of a piece isn't immediately apparent. Lilian De Souza's ""Simple Sound,"" a mortar-shaped item with a rotary knob and mouthpiece, looks like it could be a duck call or a pepper grinder or a showerhead. Websites are listed for every artist and design group featured, but in some cases (De Souza's is one) even the web sites offer no explanation. With objects ranging from silverware to carpet to sushi boards and a plethora of chairs, this collection offers a feast of items reimagined by over 100.
