Functional objects or art?

A piece of furniture and a shoe are the subject of this post. Admittedly a little off the usual well trodden path of type eh?

As pieces of design I found these two images of interest. Both seemingly are functional objects but would be equally at home in a gallery space, if not already in one. I discovered these in a Czechoslovakian magazine, Luxury Guide, which is filled with expensive items that most people could neither afford or desire. But if you need a $100,000 watch there are plenty from which to choose.
