Theca & Steelwood

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have designed a new storage unit for Magis that features use of some interesting new materials. Doors and sides of the unit are made of stamped aluminum and the purchaser can select from natural finish, black or anodized. You also get your choice of wood for the shelves, cherry or black ash. To accompany the Theca storage unit, the Bouroullecs have released their Steelwood Chair in a new galvanized steal and beech edition, which fits perfectly with the cabinet.

Wilson Keyring

I have always tended toward the functionality of a carabiner for carrying and containing my mess of keys. That said I have recently been looking for a slightly more refined alternative to utilize in the, albeit rare event of having to dress up and attend a more formal event or gathering. Unfortunately for me arriving fashionably late to the party this time means I missed out on the perfect solution. The Wilson Keyring from General Manufacturing Concern had sold out before I came across it. GMC, please create another run of these lovely little key organizers.

Hood Lamp

Form Us With Love a Stockholm based design studio has created this wonderful new modular lighting system which is easily expanded to fit your space. The bowl created by the deep pendant creates a very natural spacial divider. The system itself is based on two key pieces, domed corners and straight panel pieces, which when combined are infinitely expandable. The pieces are made of molded polyester and fit together using small pegs and are light with LED bulbs.

Step Basin

Even the most design forward brands rarely create amazingly unique designs changing how we perceive the washroom. The Step Basin designed by Swedish studio Note is Japanese in it’s simplicity and Swedish in its utility.

Minimalist Superhero Postcards

I think we can all agree, everyone loves superheroes. Therefore these postcards designed by Forma & Co are amazing. Bold colors, distinct minimal illustrations of superheroes and some really nice print work. Definitely going to have to get my hands on some of these.

Rokur

The concept behind this ultra minimalist rocking chair was to embody the look and feel of relaxation. When I relax I personally feel a little more amorphous or at least less rigid. That aside the design by Purpose Inc. is really beautiful and the profile view almost resembles the floor plan of an oddly shaped building.

Mica

I find myself posting work by Savvy Studio all the time, and with good reason. Their work is always clean, crisp and has just enough seriousness to it to give it a sense of urgency. MICA is a contemporary jewelry house specializing in custom made pieces. The name comes from the family of “minerals that are characterised by their malleability which makes them ideal for various uses – some which are purely aesthetic”. The interior of the shop was designed using an elaborate grid that referenced Sol Lewitt’s work. You can see more of Savvy Studio’s work here.

M Lamp

Designer David Irwin creates contemporary designs for furniture, product design and lighting. The M Lamp is one of his most recent designs, which actually straddles the space between product and lighting. As the lamp is portable and small in scale. The concept for it was inspired by the rudimentary kerosene lanterns carried by miners and other workmen. Standing at just over 9 inches it packs quite a wallop with 3,000 lux of warm diffused light. The M Lamp is now available at Juniper Design.

One Calendar

Now that almost every person has a computer or smart phone at their fingertips every second of the day. The need for clocks, watches, and calendars has been greatly diminished. Despite that I have seen some really interesting calendar designs recently. One Calendar designed by Jeong Yong features a series of circles connected using magnets set at increments for the month, day and year. The three rings can be configured in a few different ways changing the date format making the calendar useful anywhere in the world.

Loop

Of course I have an ongoing love affair with simple utilitarian objects. The Loop bottle opener designed by Oscar Diaz, for Field is one such tool.


Coren Cycles

Carbon Fibre is one of the amazing technologically advanced materials that is becoming more and more prevalent in high end automotive and other parts construction. UBC a high tech German composites company has paired up with designer Christian Zanzotti to create a line of bicycles. The bikes use custom manufactured parts made by UBC out of their super light materials for every possible component. The resulting bikes are futuristic and light as a feather, but also elegant, minimal, and utilitarian. Currently Coren Cycles only have a single speed model and fixed gear model available, but more concepts are due out soon.


Munich Underground

Alas I have never seen the Munich underground in person, but these photos by Nick Frank even capture it in a way almost no one has ever seen it. The interesting architectural environments pop with color and bold lines, which are normally obscured by the blur of people bustling through them.

Cup and Saucer

Saucers have always been a slightly annoying dish to me, but this set designed by Mina Perhonen has changed my opinion. Together the cup and saucer create a whimsical little bird to hold your piping hot beverages. They are available for sale over on White Rabbit Japan.

Punkt

Power strips and electronic power supply products have always felt as though they have been neglected by design. Apple has led the personal computing and electronics realm on advancing that area, but most other companies continue to release the most basic black and grey plastic adapters, which leave a vast ocean of improvements yet to be realized. Punkt has been known for creating products which through a minimalist aesthetic have been able to challenge the status quo, including their Punkt DP 01 cordless phone. Pictured here is their newly released ES 01, which is a simple yet ingenious “power strip” design. I put the words power strip in quotations because it is neither a strip nor what we have come to expect from those bland uninteresting power sources. The round shape and strategically spaced and aligned outlets allow for the cords to be gathered and fed out in one slot. Furthermore the sleek lid cloaks the unappealing plugs and transforms it into an immaculate orb.

Plank Sofa

Today being one of the first damp dark days of fall I would love to be curled up on my couch at home surfing the web. The Plank sofa designed by KnudsenBergHindenes is definitely what I picture in my head when I daydream of being home on my sofa. This minimal design incorporates a simple two plank wood construction made from douglas spruce with beautifully turned wooden legs. A simple yet appropriate upholstered top nestles into the L shape created by the joining of the planks and leaves a broad expanse of the flat top open as a perfect end table.

The current owners purchased the property in 1990 and commissioned Kengo Kuma & Associates to do some additions and renovations to the property.
