‘Teorema’ drawers

Ron Gilad / Molteni & C
£1038

In 2012, Ron Gilad created the ‘Gradoº’ collection for Molteni&C, featuring modules that explored the relationship between shapes and void. This year, designer and manufacturer worked together again to develop the flip side of that collection: entitled ‘Teorema’, the new pieces focus on solid forms, using a template that evolves to create what the designer calls ‘micro architectures’. A combination of mechanical precision and artisanal skill, ‘Teorema’ consists of a series of modular drawers, made of American walnut, that can be used alone as a free-standing unit or assembled into a rotating structure.

‘Satellite’ hand mirror

Christoffer Skjøtt / Møbel & Rum
£209

Pick it up, twirl it about and discover new things: Møbel & Rum’s playful ‘Satellite’ hand mirror presents a whole new way to observe yourself and your surroundings. Designed by Christoffer Skjøtt, the circular mirror sits atop a uniquely shaped handle carved from four evenly-sized pieces of oak, each one revealing its own qualities and patterns that will form a beautiful patina over time.

‘Blink’ vanity table

Yabu Pushelberg / Stellar Works
£1,469

Yabu Pushelberg’s new collection for Stellar Works, entitled ‘Blink’, includes this compact vanity table. The modernist construction is a discreet manifestation of the design duo’s clever way with shapes. Its asymmetrical form comprises tubular steel legs that curve upwards to cradle a moon-like mirror. For the designers, the collection’s main trait is an ‘inherent sweetness and happiness’. They say: ‘The pieces are based on forms that are light, sculptural and playful; there is a naïve quality to the collection that is balanced with clarity of form and simple materials.’

‘Hotel Royal’ bed

Terri Pecora / Zanotta
Price on request

‘Naia’ table mirror

JCP
£1.190

At first glance, JCP’s ‘Naia’ table mirror could be a globe. Balanced on a matte brass cylindrical base and held in place by a semi-circular frame, the circular polished steel mirror spins on an axis in an ironic duality of vanity conceived by CTRLZAK. The reverse of each handmade mirror has a veined marble surface that is unique to each piece.

‘Aida’ table lamp

Angelo Mangiarotti / Karakter Copenhagen
£749

Italian architect Angelo Mangiarotti was better known for his buildings and sculptures, but he also designed some sublime lighting pieces. Danish brand Karakter is reissuing his ‘Aida’ lamp, designed in 1988 for Veart. It’s a perfectly balanced piece consisting of a slanted black base and a frosted glass shade connected by a slim stem. The light bulb, meanwhile, is hidden in the base, illuminating the shade from below to cast a soft glow.

'Olivia' mirror

Davide Monopoli / Pulpo
£247

Presenting an exciting combination of colour and texture, Pulpo's 'Olivia' mirror is a game of contrasts. Designed by Davide Monopoli, the piece comprises an azure-tinted laminated glass mirror atop a heavy black stone base and sits at an angle, promising a reflection from any position.

‘Reflection of a gesture’ mirror

Beza Projekt
From €320

Avant-garde design studio Beza Projekt has created a new series of artistic mirrors that question the assumption that a mirror should be unhindered, clear and perfectly reflective. The mirrored area is drawn directly onto a transparent glass surface in bold, reflective swirls while the sculptural, asymmetric wooden frames, furthers the idea of a mirror as art installation. The innovative piece shows the Warsaw-based firm encouraging functionality to take a rare back seat.

'Alexandra' mirror and drawers

Sebastian Mann / Mannmade London
£1,475

'Alexandra' is a multifaceted piece of furniture that tends to all bedroom needs. Combining storage space, mirror and a dressing table, the modular structure is a contemporary, space saving solution.

'Highlight' collection

Studio Peascod
From £1,650

Emma Peascod has been a leading exponent of verre églomisé – the decorative technique of applying gold leaf, paper and pigments to the back of glass and mirrors – since founding her London-based studio in 2011. Her work can be seen in numerous private interiors and, more easily, over the reception desk of Skye Gyngell’s much-lauded london restaurant, Spring, but her new range of lighting and furniture is the first she has released under her own name. The Highlight collection includes two lamps, two mirrors and a side table in striking deco-inspired shapes. Each piece is handmade, with a lead time of around eight to ten weeks, and can be ordered in one of four different églomisé effects and three metal finishes. We think it’s a dazzling reflection of her talent.

'Babel' lamp

Ángel Jové / Santa & Cole
$1,215

To honour its 30th anniversary this year, Spanish lighting company Santa & Cole has reissued its sculptural ‘Babel’ lamp. Originally designed by graphic designer and illustrator Ángel Jové in 1971, the lamp is made from smooth alabaster from the Spanish village of Sarral, its robust form evoking the geometric linearity of the art deco period while exuding an architectural, totemic elegance – a combination ahead of its time, and no less relevant today. As each lamp is meticulously crafted by hand, no two are alike, and they are just as impactful on a tabletop as on the floor.

'Paul Smith Edition 3' desk lamp

Paul Smith / Anglepoise
£160

This is the third time the two eloquent British brands Anglepoise and Paul Smith have joined forces to interpret the former's classic Type 75, this time in bright primary colours, inspired by the De Stijl movement pioneered by Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. Combining the unmistakable modernist form of an Anglepoise with the unique handprint of the fashion designer, they celebrate impeccable yet abstract style and function.

The luxury rugs are inexhaustible sources of wonder, often catching the eye with striking patterns or shocking colours: case in point, this wool and silk 'Rehab' rug, which uses a repetitive black and white linear pattern to present a mesmerising optical illusion that creates depth and intrigue.

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.

'Orlando' armchair

Reiko Kaneko / SCP
£2,193

Having previously focussed on fine bone china pendant lamps, this 'Orlando' armchair marks designer Reiko Kaneko's first foray into furniture. The lounge chair boasts a solid steel frame, with a tubular steel back allowing for a gentle, comforting flex. The slim arm rests are made from walnut or oak, whilst various upholstery and powder-coat finishes are available - we're particularly fond of the 'Maharam Cobblestone' pictured. Orlando's small footprint, low base and custom finishes make it an ideal fit for any room.

'Trianglehex'

Bertjan Pot / Golran
£1.020

From Bertjan Pot's 'Triangles' collection for Golran, the design of this hand-knotted wool and silk pouf was initiated with an investigation into the weaving technique of the kilim from which its pattern would be spun. Like all pieces from the line, the pouf's pattern is based on the geometric form of the triangle, which here has been positioned to create a kaleidoscopic series of diamonds and hexagons, emphasised by a clever arrangement of both contrasting and harmonising hues of pink and red.

Arches of Kullaro

Lisa Hillard / Kullaro

Designer Lisa Hillard uses the stone here to create the slim, playful arches of her Kullaro mirror. As well as poetically framing the mirror, the extra arches double-up as useful hanging rails. The range also includes two coffee tables and a foot stool that bare the signature looping stonework from the Lönsboda-based company.

Frisbi

Enrico Tonucci / Schönbuch
€355

This reissue wall mounted coat rail has been given a contemporary new finish of smoked glass for the shelf and brass for coat hanger. Presented by German entrance-hall specialists Schönbuch and initially designed in 1980 by Italian designer Enrico Tonucci, the simple piece encompasses a sense of luxury minimalism. As the namesake suggests, the rail gives the impression of floating in mid-air, thanks to the hidden rear hook, allowing for streamlined edges which deliberately lack embellishment.
