The Art of War

One of the fiercest arguments in the last Presidential election concerned the seemingly endless war. While both sides—one for its indefinite continuation and the other for its immediate ending—argued ad nauseum about the best strategy, design house Thorsten van Elten was able to find the perfect happy medium.

Designed by Dominic Wilcox, the War Bowl is a playful take on both of the spectrum’s ends. By casting plastic toy soldiers (available in red, white, and blue, each signifying a different war) into stunning centerpieces, the bowl simultaneously references the power of war as much as it connotes its futility.

Ultimately, the bowl is as visually engaging as it is politically provocative, and it is nice to see that both sides of the debate are equally represented. A more suitable name, perhaps, could be the New Era Bowl.

The bowl is carried by the bastion of good taste in Lakeview, ID Chicago.
