Skull Chair, Brain Ottoman & Spine Lamp. The Vanitas Collection by Vladi Rapaport.




A collection of products inspired by the Dutch "Vanitas" still life paintings from the 16th and 17th century. The characteristic type of symbolic still life painting is the one where the symbols of emptiness, time and death were placed on the canvas as a reminder of the vanity of one's earthly life.
