In response to a comment we received last week, your hint for this week’s What the…? is that it’s absolutely not a coat hanger, bench or chair. So what is it? Or rather, what are they?
Mull this one over, and give us your answer in the comment area below. Tomorrow we’ll announce who was the first to guess correctly.
I’m not too motor savvy, but this object, with its fluid curves and shiny finish, kind of looks like it belongs attached to a souped-up car or motorcycle. As for a hint as to its size, it’s much, much bigger than a bread box.
Give us your best guess in the comment area below, and we’ll be watching for the first person to get it right. Find out who that is tomorrow. Be sure to check back.
Got an idea of what this week’s mystery object is? They kind of look like a cousin to Ernie’s beloved Rubber Ducky on Sesame Street, but I don’t think they float. As for a clue to their size, well, if you own a dog, let’s just say he wouldn’t be afraid of these guys.
Come back to tomorrow to see if you figured it out. This week, it might just be a race.
The American Breed’s 1968 hit song Bend Me, Shape Me was the first thing that popped into my head when I came across this week’s mystery object. While it may look like a piece of modern art, it’s function is quite practical.
Here are two little hints to keep you on track…it isn’t a child’s toy, and it’s too large to fit on a table. Give us your guess. And be sure to check back tomorrow for the big reveal.
If you tend to need as much extra space as you can get, then this week’s What the. . . ? might be an ideal addition to your living room. What are they? mycreativepath was the first to submit a guess and hers was right. (I’m impressed.) When they’re put away one beneath the other, the tiered levels of these Gianfranco Frattini-designed Cassina stacking low tables appear to be one solid cylinder. One of the coolest aspects of the design is that the laminate tops are reversible. Depending on the day, you can let your mood decide: white or black.
Italian designer Frattini started his career in industrial design and is best remembered today as a major player in the Italian design movement of the late 1950s and 60s, as well as for his Boa lamp. If you’ve been looking for a set of tables like these, I found them for sale at 1stdibs.com. For a deeper look at the design of these tables, check out the Cassina gallery on architonic.com.

Got a guess as to this week’s mystery object? It isn’t intended for drumming like it may appear. And to give you a little hint as to scale, I initially thought it was a stack of coasters, but this wouldn’t fit on a kitchen counter.
Give it a whirl. We’ll be eyeing your responses for the correct answer. Check back in tomorrow to find out who nailed it first.
While it resembles the object in the opening shot of the film Inception, this week’s mystery design is not a spintop. Want a hint as to scale? It’s too big to fit on a table. So, shot glass is out.
Looking forward to your guesses and seeing who gets it right first. That, we will reveal tomorrow.
So, what do you think? Don’t let the purple throw you off. It’s a handy gadget for women and men. Take a minute to mull it over, then give us your best guess.
We’ll be checking in to peek at your responses. Be sure to return tomorrow to see the answer, and find out if you were the first to get it right.
