The Yeh Wall Table designed by Kenyon Yeh for Danish brand Menu has fast become a sought after piece of furniture. It's no secret that I love mine, and judging by its popularity in the design world, I'm certainly not alone. Interested to learn more about Kenyon's work, I was excited to receive an email from the talented designer this week. Graduating in Master of Product Design at Kingston University, London in 2009, Kenyon started his own design studio in the same city the following year. His work, which is characterised by a unique approach, creativity, shape, and practice has been published in several medial and international exhibitions in London, Milan and Taiwan.
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.
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.
