Office buildings are always struggling to define themselves and when they finally achieve it, most of the time it’s after a multi-million dollar renovation. But sometimes, with a little creativity and budgeting, you can get a distinctive facade without spending the GDP of a small island nation. CHYBIK+KRISTOF did exactly that with furniture company MY DVA’s own products, using 900 of MY DVA’s plastic chairs to decorate the outside of their office building. It’s an attention-grabbing front that also shows customers one of MY DVA’s more durable products. On the inside, the building was divided into an office space and showroom. In the showroom, after the exterior has caught your eye, customers can explore MY DVA’s school furniture, office furniture, and some of their designer pieces. No word on whether or not you can just pick your favorite chair off the outside wall, but we’re guessing not.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
