PHOTOS: Functional Decor Made from Natural Fibers

Antoine Fritsch and Vivien Durisotti, the creative minds behind the innovative design agency Fritsch-Durisotti, were always inspired by natural materials. But their love affair with Mother Nature was at an all-time high last week, when the Parisian design duo unveiled their most recent collection, “Natural fiber by Fritsch-Durisotti,” at the Superstudio Più furniture trade fair in Milan. Made from organic fibers like bamboo and rattan, the quirky pieces marry design, art and function and prove that nature is truly the best medium.
