The Componibili is available in two sizes: 12.5” and 16.5” in diameter. The smaller version is available as either double tiered or triple tiered storage units, whereas the larger version is actually a modular system. There are three pieces available, two separate storage units and a closure lid. True, you can get it in a square shape too, but let’s admit it – round is much more interesting, isn’t it?

2D:3D collection: fold it to hold it


I love the 2D:3D collection from Blu Dot. This clever collection is based on the concept of origami: to transform a flat sheet of material into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, without the need for cutting or gluing. Sounds simple? The difference is that this creative group has managed to do this with metal.

Blue dot was founded in 1997 by three college friends who shared a passion for art, architecture, and design. Their goal was to bring good design to as many people as possible by creating products that are useful, affordable, and desirable. In their own words: “the form is almost inevitable, a by-product of the process. Our job is simply to help it emerge as beautifully and as efficiently as possible.” And there is no doubt that their 2D:3D storage and organizing collection is in line with this mission.

Wallpaper Magazine Rack: a literary design statement


I subscribe to a few magazines, some about design, one about travel and a couple about home improvement and fashion. Once in a while I also buy magazines that catch my eye. Seeing as I don’t always have the time to read them all and even those I’ve read I don’t necessarily throw away, they seem to pile up.

For a long time now I have been trying to find a way to organize my magazines. When I saw the Rosendahl Wallpaper Magazine Rack I was really excited because I realized it was just the solution I was looking for. Continue reading

Taking into account that modern homes are usually constrained for space, that a family can mean one or two adults with or without any number of children and that the needs of a household changes over time, the most important feature required of a kitchen is flexibility and adaptability.
