Crystals amaze

Nothing says 'modern art' like angular metal sculpture.

Created by Spanish brother-sister duo Juan and Paloma Garrido, this piece, entitled Crystals Console, is emblematic of the style for which they've come to be known – silver formed into striking sculpture, which balances elegant curves with jagged edges; functional geometry with off-beat, avant-garde asymmetry. The pair fuse art, design and architecture, with collections comprising everything from sculpture to unique mirrors, and lamps to furniture. We don't know whether we'd like to stare at it, sit on it or light up a room with it; all we know is we want it in our house.

Juan and Paloma Garrido are one of many artists and sculptors as this year's PAD; pad-fairs.com
