  • Pivot Desk and Vanity
    In 2008 Shay Alkalay of Raw-Edges designed the Pivot cabinet. The drawers of the wooden cabinet are hinged together, which means they can both be opened at the same time. A feature of which conventional drawers do not have. Since, Alkalay has created two new additions to the Pivot line for one of Europe’s leading table […]

  • Funiture
    As a fan of New York-based practice Snarkitecture ever since their collaboration with fashion designer Richard Chai, I have been looking forward to their new installation in Chicago’s Volume Gallery, a series of everyday objects ‘confused’ in their original function, typical context and familiar materials, producing a collection of Fun.

    I like the versatile cabinets named Sticks, by Dutch product- and interior designer Gerard de Hoop.

Inspired by seeing a number of placards put aside he created a cabinet system with boxes, in four different widths and heights, standing […]

  • RKNL Audio
    If you’re a bit like me, you’re not a big fan of cables in sight. RKNL Audio is a media console designed by Dutch designer Ronald Knol. It hides those ugly cables neatly in a double back case, and it has an open space and two storage drawers for other electronic components. RKNL Audio is made […]

  • Mrs Bill
    The Mrs Bill collection, designed by Mick Born for Karl Andersson & Sönner, features a really interesting alternative to door handles. This kind of minimalist furniture usually works with chamfer edges or a similar solution, but Mrs Bill has been designed with upturned corners on the doors. A really simple, smart and elegant solution! The collection […]
