It may not look like much at first, but the beautiful teak Mistico Multiuse Furnishing ($Inquire) by Mexican design firm Pirwi was introduced at the 2007 Salone Satelite in Milan. If we charge up our imagination we can see why. Part of the Pack of Dogs collection, where each piece is named after famous Mexican wrestlers (Dos caras Jr, Aguayo, Superastro, El Santo, Alushe and Mistico), this one looks vaguely like a dog lying on its back. The special thing is its endless possibilities. It works as a side table, stool, bench, bookshelf, magazine rack, newspaper holder, bookend . . . we get the idea.
