Paul Isabella

Posted on June 6, 2007 Under Design

Paul Isabella is a furniture design student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, and judging from his current portfolio, it looks like a sunny future is in store for this gifted newbie. Isabella’s work stems from “impressions in our life, ideas that are there at one point but are not permanent,” and “the transformation of memories over time and how they are affected by personal experience.” It’s a little tough for me to translate those concepts into furniture design (though I have to admit, I am terribly hungover), but these Pepto napkin rings definitely gave me a case of the giggles. Paul designed them as a humorous expression of the way humans are conditioned to over eat, and to serve as a little reminder when the time for seconds (or thirds…okay, fifths) comes around. The rest of Paul’s work is equally impressive, so give it a look!
