THE W* HOUSE

We thought it only fair to throw open the doors to the W* House and share with you how we’d fit out our dream digs. From consoles to cupboards, beds to bookcases, the W* House features our favourite pieces of design from across the globe, room by room. When it comes to sharing our finds, we wanted to keep things simple, letting you furnish your house with the click of a mouse, the Wallpaper* way.

'Higo' Tool

ECAL/Kacper Hamilton / ECAL/Kacper Hamilton
Prototype

Swiss ski maker Zai teamed up with ECAL student Kacper Hamilton to create this foldable ski tool and screwdriver designed to adjust ski bindings. Inspired by the simplicity of the higonokami, a traditional Japanese pocket knife, 'Higo' consists of three metal parts and two brass rivets.

'Skyline' planters

Phase Design / Phase Design
From $800 each

Phase Design's Reza Feiz found inspiration for his aluminium planters (available in grey, black, white and yellow) in the urban silhouette of LA. 'I like the contrast between the organic, random nature of the plants being framed by the precise square aluminum bars,' says the self-taught designer.

'Elevation’ containers

Arik Levy / Flora
€340

With his elevated garden storage containers and planters, Arik Levy brings new angles to the garden. At just the right height to double as seating, the containers are also handy for resting your glass on when you need both hands to throw another steak on the barbecue.

Copper watering can

Aldo Bakker / Thomas Eyck
€2,310

Dutch designer Aldo Bakker's watering can turns the humble tool into a minimalist sculpture. Each object in his shiny copper range, from soy pourers to candleholders, is a little mysterious in terms of its functionality, but this one will look lovely next to the herb garden regardless.
