In continuation of their collaborations with a select group of internationally renowned designers, Danish design house Fredericia Furniture have partnered with British design Jasper Morrison. A master of the simple, understated look, his new Pon table series is a clear example of this approach. Consisting of two sizes, the table works beautifully as a stand alone piece. Alternatively, they can be grouped together to form a contemporary interior-landscape. Designed in oak and ash, Pon is a natural continuation of Fredericia’s existing collections, which among others are strongly influenced by the Danish designer Børge Mogensen’s iconic wood furniture.
I received some beautiful imagery of the Korbo handwoven wire baskets this week. Dating back to the early 1920s in Sweden, these iconic baskets come in a range of sizes and styles. Always on the lookout for quality laundry baskets, I love the extra height of the one shown below, which you can pair with a Laundry Bag. Also great for housing plants, the Planting Bags are made of permeable geotextile which limits evaporation while at the same time allowing excess water to pass through. Clever!
Some news from Cult Design today, with the release of three new designs from the Danish lighting powerhouse Lightyears: Night Owl, Suspense and Suspense Nomad. Designed in collaboration with leading designers GamFratesi and Nikolai Wiig Hansen, the beautiful products showcase Lightyears’ trademark approach to robust materials, functionality and minimalism, with each new design sitting seamlessly alongside Lightyears’ unique collection of lighting. I'm particularly smitten with the Night Owl table lamp by Nikolai Wiig Hansen which harks back to modernist 50s styles and offers a friendly table lamp design with personality and style.
First featured on the blog when they launched last year, Berlin-based company Bon Ceramics have released a new and carefully selected range of handmade ceramic objects. Continuing the essence of Bon Ceramics, the new collection combines sophisticated architectural lines and rough, often unpolished surfaces. Featuring works from established ceramists as well as introducing new talents, the pieces range from tableware and functional items through to art objects. With innovative shapes and proportions, refined finishes and a diverse colour palette, there is so much to love!
