“If you add artistry to a utilitarian object, you transform it into decor.”

"I have been a designer all my life," says Ken Sobel. When he was just eight years old, he made a three-foot-long brontosaurus out of his Erector Set and then covered it with felt. Today, his functional art and playful tissue boxes live at the crossroads of art and engineering. He's inspired by ancient cultures, like the Minoans and the Greeks: "Both were mindful that if you add artistry to a utilitarian object, you transform it into decor."
