In addition to running the Studio Kenyon Yeh, the designer set up a Taiwan based design house Esaila in 2012. In collaboration with designers from around the globe, the company produces a range of contemporary minimalist furniture, lighting and accessories. Derived from a Taiwanese colloquialism which means 'be able to', Esaila is centred around the belief that good design is "a synthesis of commitment and determination in the pursuit of technical and aesthetic harmony". But not without a good dose of "lightness and quirkiness" which we experience in our everyday lives.
Heavystock is both a Table and Shelf by Knauf & Brown. Simple and clean, it has been designed to showcase your belongings without overshadowing them. Consisting of ash legs and steel shelves, it is also sturdy and gets a big tick for versatility, with the ability to be put together in any number on configurations. Available in black and white, see how it can be configured here.
Designed by Kaschkasch and inspired by a couple of cherries, I love the simplicity of the Cherry Pendant. Its clever design features an integrated magnet, allowing the wood cylinder to be arranged very easily, or in the case of the new Cherry Table Lamp, to grab the metal base easily. See the full range here.
Other stunning design pieces by Esaila include the Pushpin cork table and a range of Accessories such as the Forest wall hooks and Hula nesting boxes. The Capsule candleholders immediately caught my eye, as did the Pinokio freestanding mirror, which is due to be released soon.
