Indoor/Outdoor 2x3 Skinny Stripes Mat
Designer Sandy Chilewich's fleet of innovative and versatile placemats and floor mats are designed to connect with modern, everyday life. The Skinny Stripe mat blends slim bands of color for an alluring pattern that gives a sense of movement from a distance, and appears striped when up close. Made from extruded yarns, the mat features a tufted texture that appears as though it was looped, giving the mat added visual interest. A strong vinyl backing makes the mat an excellent choice for high traffic areas in the home as it prevents slippage, and the exterior is mildew and mold resistant, making it usable on outdoor patios and in basements. 2'x3': $75
Satellite Bowl (Museum of Modern Art Design Collection)
Striking in both its simple design and visual impact, the Satellite Bowl would be a dramatic centerpiece on your table. A circle of lacquered wooden spokes, ingeniously pinned together, twists open to form the unique bowl. The original concept is an answer to the designer's quest to arrange a group of uniform spokes into the simplest geometric form. $66.95 ea.

As the first contemporary store in Atlantic Canada, Attica has been promoting modern Canadian design since it opened its doors almost twenty years ago. We first became familiar with the design sensibilities of Tim Antoniuk when he was a member of the team behind Hothouse Design. Years later, Tim now has branched out on his own and formed Question Objects, a limited production craftsman-based business in Edmonton, Alberta.
