Bosa & Matteo Cibic's
Meet the Domsai! Space men from another planet? Try Milan, where these about-10-inch ETs debuted at 2009’s Design Week and we’re thrilled to be among the very first to introduce here. Matteo Cibic—a multi-threat creative director for architecture, design and ad brands—describes his little guys as a kind of tamagotchi for our desk or side table. Unlike those pedestrian technical toys that require "feeding," the Domsai is high design and beautiful and actually requires a bit of water and sunlight. User interaction is a hallmark of Matteo's work. Produced in the tiny Northern Italian commune of Nove, a hot bed of ceramics, these anthropomorphic planters are all one of a kind because no two are exactly the same: They are hand cast and mouth blown…so forms vary slightly with each Domsai.
