I’m not encouraging lazy housekeeping, but Fantôme, Edition Cinna by Paris-based design studio Vaulot & Dyevre provides a perfect excuse to put off reshelving those stacks of books or cleaning up your kid’s toys. The meuble fantôme, or ghost furniture, cloaks your messy piles in an elegant white bell jar. Made from lacquered satin aluminum, fantôme elegantly hides your personal items. It’s so refined no one will suspect that you’re really using it to keep your dirty secrets under wraps.
Vaulot & Dyevre gives Fantôme a bit of personality in their description: “Let him proceed in your living room to conceal your personal effects. Simple and enigmatic, he’s harmless.” Their other designs reflect this sense of humor, like BoraBora, a pill that shines like a lightbulb to remedy your “moodiness, flaccid skin, and tendency to depression. You are obviously in lack of sunshine. Our range of supplements Kelvin Lumen restores the vitality you need. Sunset Laboratories offers a wide range of solar radiation, Borabora, the Maldives, Haiti and the Bahamas, ask your pharmacist. Read the instructions carefully. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. This additional Solar should not totally replace natural exposure. Avoid abusive use.”
