Icarus light

Tue 05 2007

icarus.jpgThe Icarus light  is an absolutely stunning light, the latest creation from designer sensation Tord Boontje. Gigantic, lightweight and delicate at the same time, it is made from various layers of polyester. It comes with a cone-shaped plastic safety protector, which prevents the material from coming into contact with the light bulb. Flat-packed for quick and easy assembly. Maximum lamp rating 60 watt. Available in white. Drop approx 78cm. The end result is very romantic, delicate and absolutely dreamy. In the past Boontje has focused primarily on exploring the realms of nature. This light does that as well, but with a hint of ancient mythology.


It seems that ‘Zaishu’ is Japanese for small seat. It also functions as a small table and storage box. Requires no tools or problematic fittings like nails, screws or adhesives. Made from plywood “ideally salvaged from construction sites”, the seats simply slot slot together, in an operation that can be completed in as little as 11 seconds! Requiring no packaging, the seats are designed to take on a used patina, with he external artwork has been created a variety of designers and artists from Australia, Japan, Korea, and Italy.

A sophisticated and refined bathroom environment where every detail is at once appealing and surprising. The result of innovative and functional design that offers a new range of options for its use.


Grinding peppercorns and spices can be a pleasantly therapeutic activity. We believe you should go one further and do it in style. Pestle & mortars come in all shapes and sizes. Beautifully machined from 316-grade stainless steel, it’s almost too good to use.

zig-zag-chair.jpgThe Zig Zag is a unique chair has no beginning and no end. The design concept is the same as when you write a complete sentence without lifting the pen – in a circle! This serpent inspired lounge chair almost forces the spectator to examine it closely. And despite it’s abstract look, it’s quite comfortable. The strong aluminum alloy frame and a thick layer of supporting foam, it perfectly balances the weight of anyone who dares.

Polder sofa

Fri 05 2007


Hella Jongerius‘ Polder sofa for Vitra’s Home Collection is an outstanding piece of high quality furniture and design in the minutest detail. Inspired by techniques such as tailoring, collage and embroidery, she has successfully mixed them into a delightful contemporary design language. Different sized cushions upholstered in five different coordinated colours and textures, and large buttons made of natural materials like horn, bamboo and mother of pearl that are sewn to the cushions with bold broad cross stitches using contrasting threads, are the main elements that will probably make Polder a design classic. Jongerius has wisely played with the potential offered by computer controlled machines, proposing random stitching of buttons and open variations for the pattern lines in the poufs.
