‘Carved’ chocolate set, by Studio Appétit and Oialla
We teamed Dutch design firm Studio Appétit with chocolate brand Oialla to create a smash and grab apparatus, allowing people to cut themselves a piece of exquisite chocolate. The rugged choc block comes with its own geometric serving board made from African walnut and two carving chisels, which feature different tips and wide bases cast in brass, that double as hammers. The whole set is housed in a black, custom-made, mini shipping crate (not pictured).Shop the edit on WallpaperSTORE*
Pleasure Dome, Glenn Sestig Architects and Van Den Weghe
A beautifully crafted and multi-functional object, the 'Pleasure Dome' is made of German glass and titanium travertine. By flipping the stone base over, you can adapt it to different uses – a fruit bowl, a cheese platter, a cake stand or even a terrarium, using either the shallower or deeper side. Lift off the glass dome and the base turns into a striking stone tray.

‘Spring' scissors, by Lex Pott and Nomess Copenhagen
Inspired by traditional Japanese cutting instruments, Dutch designer Lex Pott and Danish brand Nomess Copenhagen created these sculptural scissors out of a single piece of metal, bent into a spring to create tension for the flattened blades. Best of all, they make the cut for both left- and right-handed people.Shop the edit on WallpaperSTORE*
Cake stand, by Egg Collective and Marsotto
Executed in solid marble by Marsotto, Egg Collective’s curvilinear cake stand features an elongated base topped with a round tray that can be lifted off or easily locked into place. The polished surface adds a luxurious dimension.Shop the edit on WallpaperSTORE*
Water pitcher, by Jason Miller and Bosa
Stemming from Brooklyn-based designer Jason Miller’s experimental combinations of ceramic with other materials, this pitcher’s graceful shape is complemented by the addition of a robust brass handle attached with twine. Both masculine and soft, this expressive collage of materials is a tough combination to beat.
Food warmer, by Garth Roberts and Segno Italiano
Taking its cue from the classic Dutch oven and open-fame camping stove, Garth Roberts’ seemingly rudimentary food warmer design is transformed by the use of noble materials – hammered copper and marble – beautifully crafted by some of Segno Italiano’s network of Italian artisans. The attention to detail is clear in the matching spoon and rest.Shop the edit on WallpaperSTORE*

‘Big Sur’ punchbowl set, by Commune and Kevin Willis
Californian design collective Commune opted to rework a dinner piece that a large group of people could enjoy. Its spin on the typically kitsch punchbowl, ladle and cups is robust and earthy, thanks to ceramicist Kevin Willis’ handiwork. The Los Angeles artist cast the shapes out of solid desert clay, and finished with two custom-made, contrasting glazes, giving the set all the makings of a groovy party.Shop the edit on WallpaperSTORE*
'Equinox' candy jar, by Kristina Dam and Gaia & Gino
Sculptural but functional, this brass and marble take on the bonbonnière is a triumph of geometry. Shop the edit on WallpaperSTORE*
Cheese platter, by Laetitia de Allegri and Matteo Fogale, and Ceccotti Collezioni
For their curvaceous platter (bottom), designers Laetitia de Allegri and Matteo Fogale took inspiration from the shapes of cheese. Manufacturer Ceccotti Collezioni then crafted a circular American walnut display area and tools, contrasting with the platter’s patterned azure bioglass. The glass is 100 per cent recyclable and provided by award-winning sustainable material producer, Coverings Etc.Shop the edit on WallpaperSTORE*
Cocktail glass set, by Vanessa Mitrani
To create our perfect cocktail glassware to complement Mark Albrecht’s home bar, we worked with French glass artist Vanessa Mitrani. We were attracted by her bold use of glass and metal, and asked her to use her vases and centrepieces as the starting point for sculptural drinking vessels. The resulting set includes tumblers, highballs and martini glasses, each perched on a brass base in a range of shapes, from solid cubes and sets of metal spheres to precarious cones and ultra-thin sticks.Shop the edit on WallpaperSTORE*
