  • Kanban
    Andrea Ponti‘s Kanban side table embodies the cultural contrasts of Hong Kong in a product.

  • Magne Turntable
    The call for nostalgia is usually regarded as a downfall of design. However, I would argue against this for a few cases, one being the Magne Turntable. Designed by Danish studio Bergmann Audio, the product borrows its name from the son of Thor in Nordic mythology. Magne possessed divine strength, and the design reflects that […]
