• Gentle Hint Chair
    Nissa Kinzhalina‘s latest conception, the Gentle Hint Chair, is the epitome of restrained minimalism. The collection is a duo of seating elements that also double as potential table elements. The pieces see the calculated fusion of lines with the physical limits of the material itself. The balancing act between these two is quite beautiful. Made […]

  • Chaise M°1
    Switzerland based studio Kind of Design launched earlier this year their debut collection of furniture, called M°1.

The designer explains: By […]
