Seven Möbelstücke by Herbert Schultes Design

I’ve been admiring some of these fantastic forms by designer Herbert Schultes, it just goes to show that going back to basics really does work. It also seems that I’ve been drawn to work that has been a collaboration between craftsman and designer, maybe it’s my brain hinting that I should do something like this myself. The concept of this specific collection is to make common things …

Brace by Designer and Craftsman Louie Rigano

One thing I’ve been pretty chuffed with lately is a new addition to the office space, a Vitsoe 606 universal shelving system. As you can imagine, when assembling it made me think about flat pack furniture and why there’s not many high quality systems out there in the market. For example, you’ll often either have to buy a chair in its entirety, with the stigma attached of it being higher …

Making the Joseph Walsh Enignum Table by Pau Camarasa

A truly breathtaking video by Spanish filmmaker Pau Camarasa, one that I’ve not come across before but has been around for over a year. Not totally sure how I missed it when searching through Vimeo. Although, I have come across the creative featured named Joseph Walsh, in fact we highlighted him on the blog in 2011 and I recall his work quite vividly. This specific piece was filmed …

The Tables of Carlo Scarpa

Today I thought I’d bring across some stark looking design for all of you to admire. This furniture by Carlo Scarpa is sure to hold well against the cold weather that we’re experiencing here in the UK, and it was the perfect remedy for me over the weekend. I decided to sit through a short film early Saturday morning that had been produced by SIMON last month, as it hadn’t got many views I wasn’t expecting anything spectacular but I was instant …

Furniture at Monokraft

Some delicious looking furniture I stumbled across at the start of the week by Monokraft, a Japanese company based in Tokyo. They’ve got a fantastic website that showcases their work beautifully, so I thought I’d bring a selection of my favourites across for all of you to admire. As I’ve said in previous posts it’s not always easy to find imagery that’s big enough but today I was really spoilt for choice! These workman use a mixture of …

A Selection of Furniture by NAUT Design

With our recent release in the shop of the book nest by TRUCK Furniture, which has been ever so popular, I’ve been thinking to myself that we should buy a few items from the TRUCK shop, particular the stools and some chairs for our office. Originally I thought this would be a bit out of my reach considering the shipping all the way from Japan that I’ve been following for the past year named NAUT, they own a showroom/shop in Nagoya …

Workroom, A Family Project

I found this great little project today that I’ve not come across before titled Workroom that’s run by father and daughter team Rebecca and Douglas Snelling. This concept reminds me of Nikole Herriott who also collaborates with her father Lance, they started a quaint little company a while back called Herriot Grace that makes handmade objects such as wooden spoons and bowls. It’s nice to see family run businesses if I’m honest, I’ve always …

Boiacca Table by LucidiPevere

As a man that’s not particularly fond of so called ‘cold’ objects this particular project that I’m showcasing today was up in the air for a while. I’ll explain why as we go on but I have to admit recently I’ve been drawn to items with more substance and character rather than strict minimalism, I think it’s important to find that balance which is sometimes lacking in the design world, particularly in this day and age. A lot of …

The Albini Desk by Franco Albini

What’s most disappointing about the internet at the moment is the lack of information regarding past designers and architects. I find it highly frustrating searching for the designers webpage and they haven’t even bothered investing in a place to showcase their work. Often this can be put on the heads of the family of the designers who have passed away, one example of a designer who has no specific home page is Franco Albini. He’s …

Furniture by Joaquim Tenreiro

I’ve always (and I’m showing my age here) recognised Brazil mainly for their sporting achievements, having grown up watching the Rivaldo’s and Ronaldinho’s of this world with much amazement. It got me thinking this morning that I must research more into the designers that originate from this wonderful country, and in doing so I stumbled across a collection of furniture made by Joaquim Tenreiro. Before going into any detail on …
