Pots

Terracotta clay is one of my favorite materials and it is not often used in modern design. It is earthy, warm and has a rich red/brown tone. British designer Benjamin Hubert took on the task of using terracotta to create his modern collection called ‘Pots’ and the result is exceptional. Each pot has a minimalistic shape and the collection as a whole has an appealing sculpture-like composition. Continue reading

Klipy Kitchen Tools

Around Clock

The Around Clock is an analog clock that displays the time on a cylinder as opposed to a traditional flat face. It has a very clean and minimalistic design that grabs your attention and invites you to experience telling the time in a brand new way. The Around Clock has a contemporary aluminum finish and its numbers and marks are displayed in clear and bold black font. I particularly like the arm which is bright red and made from a solid cable like material. The arm gently rotates around the cylinder to indicate the time. Continue reading

The subtle flow of the S Urban bench is truly exceptional and Martinez created it in three different mediums- solid surface, wood and Cor-Ten steel. Continue reading

I think the Ang Flower Vase is absolutely fantastic since it makes arranging the flowers really easy and it displays them so that they look their very best.

It is made from mouth-blown glass combined with brass and is certain to compliment the design of any home. Continue reading
