In case anyone had forgotten about Karl Lagerfeld's legion of side projects — remember the helicopters? — there's now a behind-the-scenes video featuring The Kaiser hard at work on his latest one: a photo series for Italian furniture company Cassina.

The company announced that Lagerfeld would photograph some of its iconic designs in November, and the images he created will be on display at Cassina's Paris showroom from Jan. 31 to March 10.

In the video, Lagerfeld says his goal was to make the furniture appear "both mysterious and unusual while remaining a piece of furniture." A look at him doing just that in the video below.
