£1.385

Studioilse w084t2

Ilse Crawford / Wästberg
£405

Born of a collaboration between eminent Swedish design-house, Wästberg, and coveted British designer, Ilse Crawford, this unique table lamp with NL plug utilises – alongside years of impressive design innovation – the power of materials to evoke sensory and emotional responses in the viewer. Sand-casted iron, treated with a burnt vegetable oil, is used to portray a sense of stability, reliability and trust. Beech wood gives an impression of warmth and life, while mineral plastic has been specially chosen for its intimate glow and tactility. In collaboration, these materials and the designers behind their marriage, bring to the surface a unique concept of beauty within the visceral realm of interior accessories.

'Time Maze'

Daniel Libeskind / Alessi
£125

Polish-American architect Daniel Libeskind is no stranger to designing furniture, and his portfolio includes a sofa for Flexform and a bookcase for Poliform. This year, Libeskind worked with Alessi to create a striking wall clock that echoes the sharp corners and erratic lines of his visionary architecture. Eschewing traditional clock-face designs, the architect chose instead to focus on a continuous line, in red epoxy resin-coated stainless steel, tangled into an angular maze and complemented by a black circular mechanism with black hour and minute hands. Turning time on its head, the clock can be hung in any orientation.

'Moon' bowl

Ilona Van Den Bergh
£153

Belgian designer Ilona Van den Bergh creates these stunning ceramic bowls by casting them into half-spherical plaster moulds and then reshaping them while still pliable. Each circular piece is worked by hand to shape a gentle indentation across the curved surface before being fired to fix its final shape. The resulting one-offs are available in four different colours and three different sizes.

'Theca'

Marcel Wanders / Poliform
Price on request

We are used to a decorative design stance from Marcel Wanders, so we were pleasantly surprised to lay eyes on something more minimal. His ‘Theca’ series is a family of modest, rigorous sideboards with an aesthetic that plays on the contrast between solid and vacant space. Combining opaque and shiny surfaces, transparent volumes and blocky elements, the collection includes low and tall cabinets imagined for drinks and home entertainment. As well as creating an enticing design that includes asymmetrical compositions of fumed glass and elm, Wanders has also developed the cabinets’ interiors to give them a more practical function, equipping them with removable trays, electrically-wired compartments, drawers and bottle holders.

Highlight

Dan Yeffet / Veronese
From €1950

Paris-based Dan Yeffet presents this subtle lighting fixture that merges two elegant materials: Murano glass and marble. Shaping the piece as if a refined vessel, the symmetrical model hones in on the quality of the materials with sleek curves and its circular grey or tobacco edges.

Terrace

Sebastian Herkner / Linteloo
Price on request

German designer Sebastian Herkner adds to his collection of designs for Netherlands-based Linteloo's with these abstract ceramic tables.

'Brocca' jug

Eligo
£71

The Tuscan town of Empoli has long been associated with glassmaking, and for centuries the craft has been utilised to accommodate local necessities, such as to produce bottles for wine from nearby Chianti. The glass typically takes on a green hue, a result of the high levels of iron oxide found in local sand. This handblown collection by Eligo is made up of unique nuances, as well as clean, graceful lines.

Nojaa and Ojentaa

Mari Isopahkala
Price on request

A collection that takes its cues from the Dutch De Stijl movement, these playful wooden lights were designed by Helsinki-based designer Mari Isopahkala. The abstract sculptures are available in tall or short table version and all embody simple wooden silhouettes, with some of their angular planks painted in a pop and a contrasting pastel tone. Intended as lighting, but acting more as artistic decorations, their additional LEDs may not aid illumination, but lend to its whimsical framework for another dimension.
