alexander calder’s inspired bathroom improvisations

…a bit of inspiration from one of our favorite books, Calder at Home: The Joyous Environment of Alexander Calder, by Pedro Guerrero. The book documents the artist’s amazing way with the most ordinary household objects, including le toilet. Who else would think to paint the underside of a toilet seat and make a visual SURPRISE, or a charming little design on the floor, not to mention fabulous toilet paper holders…

…except maybe Saul Steinberg, whose tub we love.
