Kicking off with some local news, the Volley Swivel Chair by Jamie McLellan is a new release from NZ design company Resident. I was instantly drawn to its unique shape which   is sophisticated yet playful. Made from flat components pressed together into a comfortable three dimensional form, it features a robust swivel pedestal base allowing for 360 degrees of rotation. The Volley Swivel chair is available in a variety of upholstery finishes (also with timber legs) from Simon James Design

Amsterdam-based design studio Formafantasma has produced a range of objects that draw references from Rome's ancient ruins and museums. Reinterpreted as abstracted, minimal forms combining marble, metals, porcelain and wood, I particularly love the porcelain Acquedotto pourers which are based on ancient Roman vessels.

A recent discovery, Melbourne-based Interior Design Studio We Are Huntly are producing some inspiring work. Founded by Kylie Dorotic and Alicia McKimm, the talented duo say they are dedicated to bringing something exclusive to each project, and it shows. Whether they are selecting a custom design print, a tailor made tabletop, or bathroom fixtures the emphasis is on craftsmanship and attention to detail. Here's a peek from their portfolio. I also recommend checking out the recently completed The Penny Drop Café

Another one of my favourite chairs currently, the Bollo Armchair designed by Andreas Engesvik for Fogia was initiated as a typical Scandinavian lounge chair with slim features and modest use of materials. I love how the generously shaped cushions, which are designed for a heightened level of comfort, create a bold contrast to the slim metal frame. Recently nominated for the BoBedre Design award 2016 Furniture of the Year, I would love to see it win!

I was excited to see a new pendant light called Liuku by beautifully ethical Danish brand Mater, who I first featured here. Following on the heels of the Terho lamp, Finnish designer Maija Puoskari has once again created a beautiful design to add to Mater’s collection of lighting, incorporating wood and glass with a sustainable long-lasting LED bulbs. “The Liuku pendant is a very interesting and original piece of lighting. It captures the beauty of Scandinavian elegance, characterised by blond oak wood, calm colours and honest materials”, says Henrik Marstrand, founder and CEO of Mater. Consisting of a coloured mouth-blown glass shade nestling over an FSC-certified oak base in two different shapes, with long-life LED built in, Liuku’s shade is available with clear glass or in three beautiful tones of smoke, deep smoke, or gradient violet. Additionally, the wooden base can be used on it’s own as a single pendant, or to create a rows and clusters.
