Childhood is one of the most beautiful periods of our life or it is supposed to be like that. It is a great period when you are a small kid; you have no worries, not too many responsibilities. You can enjoy all the things that are offered to you and the others should take care of your safety and needs. For me childhood represents one of the happiest and funniest period. It reminds me of all the funny things that I used to do, the funny games that I used to play with my friends and the way I used to create all sorts of “troubles” with my little brother to my parents.
John Vogel created in collaboration with Justin Plunkett a sculptural side table called Love Me Love Me Not .Actually it is a set of side tables which are available individually or as a set of eight. The set of eight creates a full flower shaped table while the base reveals a surface that looks like a leaf or a petal. Perhaps everybody remembers the period when you could take a flower and while you were removing each of its petals you were repeating the same thing: he or she loves me or loves me not.
The moment you reached the last petal you could find the answer of these questions whether your beloved loved you or not. It was a funny game of the childhood which expressed the high degree of our naivety as a child.
