Pirate spirit takes over the house

Pirate spirit takes over the house

Hitherto confined to horror films or Gothic atmospheres, the skull and crossbones are making a strong comeback in our interiors. On the office side, studious workers and children will be able to show off with the Skeleton pen from Tsé-Tsé Associés, sold for € 6.50 at Sentou, or the X-Ray mouse pad at La Chaise Longue, showing a hand passed through X-rays ( € 6). On the kitchen side, the blue cords will not be outdone: the Parisian boutique Bô publishes a range of Andy tea towels with colorful skull patterns signed Jean-François Ribay (€ 16). We find the pirate aesthetic: crossed shins and hourglass, symbol of the little time left for the opponent to make the decision to fight or surrender. Roast chickens only have to be careful! These tea towels harmonize perfectly with the skull toaster produced by Present Time (40 €). Imagined by a team of Dutch designers, the formidable utensil marks the toats of a pretty skull, all golden, chewable to the teeth. Enough to start the day! In sticker. "Remember that you are going to die" (memento mori) seems to remind us of the French artist Pierre Nicolas-Ledoux. "Ah Ah Ah !!!" he added to the side of his skull. Published one hundred copies at Domestic (41 €), its "Motor Death Art" sticker has just entered the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
