samer alameen turns childhood toys into playful furniture pieces for JCP

drawing from childhood toys, lebanese designer samer alameen has created two ironic pieces of furniture for eclectic italian brand JCP. first in the two double-meaning objects is ‘eret’, a console table reminiscent of meccano, a model construction system for children conceived in 1898, but still popular all around the world. in line with the brand’s aim of transforming normality, the piece’s surfaces appear as if they can be moved and replaced.’eret’ is made of perforated stainless steel and fixed together using fixing bolts.

alameen‘s second piece for JCP is ‘orgone’, a lamp in the shape of a bubble blowing toy, created as an iconic piece that every adult and child can relate to. its base is made out of brass, while its soap-bubble-looking shade comes in borosilicate glass. the internal led light emphasizes the iridescence of the lampshade, making it appear like the surface of a delicate soap bubble.
