Friday Design Selects


Currently adjusting to life in lockdown, I've been focusing on home, my family, staying active, safe and sane. I feel it's important to maintain a sense of balance and normality, so I also want to keep delivering blog content, in the hope of inspiring you all with design that I love. A Friday Design Selects blog post was ideal for today, as I have been bookmarking lots of news from favourite brands and designers lately. The first is from Danish brand New Works. With a more architectural focus than previous editions, the New Works 2020 Collection takes inspiration from the strong yet tactile world of Vincent Van Duysen. Introducing four new collections from four new collaborating designers, the pieces are simple yet sensual, intimate yet inviting. 

Designed by Regular Company, the Missing chair is New Works' take on a highly functional cafe chair. Light, stackable and durable, its straight lines have been softened to give a sculptural silhouette. Swiss duo Panter&Tourron add a stunning pendant lamp from their Award Winning Tense collection. Stretching to over one metre in length, the Tense pendant lamp gives the appearance of a soft, floating cloud. A truly modern construction, its soft Tyvek diffuser is both durable and soft, whilst being 100% recyclable. Finished with a slimline LED light source, all components fit into a tube for ease of transport. The Pleat pitcher by Omayra Maymo adds to the existing range of sculptural tableware, and there are extensions to the Florence table range and KarlJohan lighting collection. I love seeing how this brand continues to evolve. See all the new collection pieces here.

I'm simply in awe of the projects coming through from Melbourne-based interior architecture practice CJH Studio. Guided by Director Cassie James-Herrick's refined eye for detail and understanding of materiality and spatial arrangement, CJH Studio celebrates the use of natural materials and soft forms. Here's a peek inside a recently completed residential project, Penthouse M, which features a warm yet minimal approach to design with beautiful curved finishes and incredible custom detailing throughout. See the entire project here.

I have such a huge love for sculptural ceramic art and I love discovering new artists. Online gallery The Ode To are known for scouting promising new talents who show beautiful craftsmanship in current expressions. With a focus on the handmade and tactile, their latest curated collection of sculptures and artworks focuses on interesting materials, shapes and textures. These include soft, organic shapes in the Air series by talented artist Paula Atelier, works by newly graduated design student Josefin Zachrisson, new editions of Tove TengĂ„'s popular ceramic sculpture, The Knot, and minimalist textile wall pieces by Antwerp-based Dorothea Dejonckheere. See all the new arrivals here.

Our Androgyne Side Table by Menu is a treasured piece at home, so I was excited about new additions to this series. Designed by Danielle Siggerud, the series now includes the Androgyne Dining Table, which amplifies the beautiful silhouette of the side table to grander proportions. The Androgyne Lounge Table is a monumental design crafted from Kunis Breccia stone, marked by characteristic veins and mineral fragments in warm hues. Continuing the simple silhouette of the collection while introducing natural materials and a shape and function made for everyday settings, the versatile design makes it possible to use as both a lounge table or bench for piles of books or statement decorations. The Androgyne is a dream table - high on my wish list! See the full series here
