  • A-Chair
    The clear formal language here reduces sitting to the essence. In dialog with this are the interlocking wood connections: they turn a structural necessity into a unique aesthetic feature and at the same time represent a tour de force of traditional carpentry. A perfect explanation of the outstanding A-Chair; a functional chair that uses the least material […]

  • Vipp Bathroom Collection
    As Danish brand Vipp continues its path as trailblazers for quality design, it is obvious to note a clear predilection for constant straightforwardness and utter simplicity throughout their Bathroom Collection.

  • Bulthaup Cooking Table
    When we think of minimalism, we tend to think of it as the outcome of economic reasons; aestheticism can be traded for functionalism. However, when these two opposite polars collide through a creative process, the result is extraordinary. One of such phenomenal products is the Bulthaup Cooking Table by Munich-based design firm Relvãokellermann, in cooperation with […]

  • Signature Kitchen
    One of the most difficult things in design is to reinvent — to deconstruct something that is functionally familiar and giving it a facelift with a more innovative appearance. Modern kitchens nowadays are superimposed with a horizontal image. However, for Belgian architect Glenn Sestig, the new kitchen design for interiors brand Obumex does not have to conform […]

  • Contour Side Tables
    Brooklyn-based Bower is the parent of these beautifully muted Contour Side Tables. The collection sees a fusion of pastel type colours in the form of the tinted-glass table-tops contrasted against the crisp with white lacquer-painted table base. The pair is intended as a nesting set of support pieces for a space, where the arrangement and […]
  • Kanban
    Andrea Ponti‘s Kanban side table embodies the cultural contrasts of Hong Kong in a product. This industrial design piece purposely plays with formal expectations of shape, and turns them on itself. Weighted by a concrete and dense base, the table-top is comprised of charcoal coloured steel, which floats above its solid foundation. The idea that […]

    The minimalist Cresta chair is an excellent design about contrasts: contrast between tradition and modernity, between old and new technologies and between robust and smooth tactility. It is the first shell chair made of solid wood, fabricated with the finger joint technology, connecting a seat and a back in a unique streamlined structure, used for the […]

The challenge was to think of an object as a quote, a […]

  • Chieut Table
    Minimalism can be routinely associated with abstraction and heaviness, an understandable marque considering the austereness of most works with said label; in contrast, talented designers like Seung Jun Jeong inhabits the other side of the spectrum, with utter lightness and visual trickery as his approach. Undeniable technical precision sets the Chieut Table apart as a […]
