Giger + Lalique = Chic?

Lalique meets Giger? Think: Cleopatra makes a guest appearance in Alien.

Left: Lalique Scarab Vase, Lead Crystal, $1,190.00 at NM

Right: H.R. Giger's Harkonnen Chairs, designed for a production of the sci-fi novel Dune in the 90s (but never used), now available through Miles & Generalis. Approx $15,000.00/chair.

Such an awesome vase - This post makes me want to catch a spaceship to Zurich, and order all my drinks with dry ice in them.

Thanks (in)decorous taste! Your blog just had the best biomechanical opening ever. More of these boxes will now have to be explored, but initial reports from our scientists on the surface suggest: a habitable atmosphere, with strong signs of 'total power'

seraph + splendor- Yes, a full dining set of these would be QUITE the expense. But imagine the look on your guests faces when you seat them!!!

The dining chairs' design look like it's taken from an alien spacecraft that crash landed here. Those are wicked, so is the price of $15,000 for each chair. Has anyone actually purchased it?
