I can haz?

Master of minimalism Martin Margiela is branching out into furniture and home design. The Belgian designer infamous for having remained incognito while building his beloved brand is expanding his repertoire to include “black-and-white trompe l’oeil wallpaper and wool rugs reproducing ceilings, floors, doors or mirrors.” Also included in the mix: “black or dark green recycled bottles [that] become lamps; a chair [that] is turned into a swing, and a calendar... made of crisp white cotton sheets, which can be recycled as napkins,” says Women’s Wear Daily.
