Like them or not, it was hard to ignore Atelier Ted Noten’s designs at the Collective Design Fair a couple of weeks ago here in NYC. Placed on a light table, these provocative accessories and jewelry pieces by the Dutch designer—such as the leaping rat in an acrylic case, a goldplated firing pistol within a fur-topped acrylic purse, and his Fashionista Golden Girl necklace made up of a bunch of high-heeled shoes—glowed within the dimly lit pier. What does it all mean? I’m not sure it means to do much more than grab your attention and at once intrigue and repel, but I leave the analyzing to you.

Ted Noten expanded from jewelry and accessories to interior design and installations in 2011 when he formed Atelier Ted Noten. You can see much more of their work here and a video of his controversial “7 Necessities” project below.
