Jacques Carelman's Impossible Objects bought to life in all their irrational glory

Way back in 1969 French artist Jacques Carelman created Catalogue d’Objets Introuvables, or to me and you other monoglots, the Catalogue of Impossible Objects. The collection is the creation of a beautifully bright wit and cheek, and to prolong the great man’s legacy since his passing in April of this year, www.impossibleobjects.com are giving you the chance to own your very own specimen. The first available “perfectly useless” piece is the famous Coffeepot for Masochists and the people behind the company are asking for your votes on what to produce next. A wonderful way to spend too much of your Monday afternoon if you ask me (my vote’s definitely for the lateral rocking chair).
