MyWorld Sofa by Philippe Starck for Cassina

French product designer Philippe Starck has created the MyWorld sofa for Italian furniture brand Cassina. The modular furniture collection includes two and three-seater sofas, an armchair, chaise longue and pouf. From the designer, ” We live in a schizophrenic society. Let’s assume that. MyWorld is a cocoon, a nest, a world where we can be egocentric and comfortably commune with our own shadow or collect some snatches of news from the world, that is said to be real”

Banksy

A painting sent through a shredder at the moment of its auction sale has been officially confirmed as a work by street artist Banksy in its destroyed state. Pest Control, the authentication body for the anonymous street artist, has verified that the painting – now partially sliced into thin strips – is itself a new original artwork. "The new work has been granted a certificate by Pest Control, Banksy's authentication body, and has been given a new title, Love is in the Bin," reads a statement released by Sotheby's. Banksy posted a video to his Instagram account last week after one of his best-known paintings was shredded just seconds after it was sold in an auction at Sotheby's in London, confirming that the move was intentional. "A few years ago I secretly built a shredder into a painting. In case it was ever put up for auction," read the text cut between shots.

Build the Wall

Conservative retailer Keep and Bear has launched a Lego-style kit for Donald Trump's border wall, with packaging that social media users are describing as rip-off and racist. Released just in time for the holiday season, the Build the Wall Starter Kit includes 101 pieces for constructing a tiny plastic wall, accompanied by an angry-looking Trump figurine wearing a hard hat. The plastic blocks, minifigure and packaging all bear resemblance to popular toy Lego, but were created by Keep and Bear – an online store that uses the tagline "one amendment to protect them all" and advertises a range of Trump-themed gifts. As part of a line of toys, the MAGA Building Blocks mimic the proposed wall along America's southern border that became one of Trump's biggest, and most divisive, talking points during his presidential campaign.
