'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.

'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.

Herringbone vase

Phil Cuttance
£225

The best vases are more than mere vessels for beauty; they stand on their own as sculptural pieces or defiant design. The Herringbone vase by Phil Cuttance is one such design. Unveiled at Salone del Mobile, this angular piece is the result of Cuttance's continued interest in 'creating visually complex three dimensional forms, in a relatively "lo-fi" way.' Individually hand-crafted in his London studio, the cement composite shows a history, however innocuously, of the process behind its making.
