An alive chaise lounge, a mobile garden, human transporter, outdoor art. A chance to lie down on the grass, watch the clouds overhead and forget the surrounding urban chaos. Recently on show at the "Best Seats on Broadway" exhibition at Times Square, N.Y., Chaise Lawn blurs the line between sculpture and furniture. Grass seeds included, but the Chaise Lawn also looks great planted with wild flowers or aromatic herbs. Chaise Lawn is currently on exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City.

Selfish & Devoted
Limited edition 50 / only 3 remaining
A garden sculpture that combines a watering can with a plant pot. “It’s a love story between a devoted watering can and a selfish planting pot,” says Cengiz. The spout is positioned so that water falls directly into the adjoining plant pot when the watering can is tilted. The angle of the pot causes the plant to grow away from the spout. The sculpture is made out of galvanised steel, natural or industrial blue. As with all of Cengiz's work Selfish & Devoted is a new way to look at and experience the most of common objects. Pieces are signed and numbered.

A provocative new design from Deger Cengiz, Cactus Chair examines how visual data affects the users experience. The existence of the large cactus elicits an emotional response, it is temporarily discomforting, a challenge. Though the user knows that the cactus is behind the glass and is not an actual threat he experiences a slight hesitation. Both tempted to sit and tempted to avoid the experience, Cactus Chair is an exciting new piece from Deger Cengiz that challenges our perceptions of furniture and design.
