    Quirky Handmade Lighting by Antoñito y Manolín // Spain.

    30th April

    Antoñito y Manolín is a Spanish studio-workshop that designs and hand-makes furniture and accessories. Their newly launched lighting collection caught our eye in particular – it’s pretty freaking cool, no? The clean, understated aesthetic perfectly reflects the Antoñito y Manolín philosophy based on functionality, beauty and simplicity.



    Exquisite Lighting by Apparatus Studio // New York.

    26th March

    Holy guacamole! Apparatus Studio’s lighting is absolutely ridiculous. As in ridiculously amazing. If I may paraphrase someone dear to my heart – “give me brass, black and white and I’ll drop my pants any-day”. My sentiments exactly! Here, aged brass, hand-etched glass, leather, porcelain and found objects are combined to an extraordinary effect. There’s a beautiful warm glow about these lights reserved only for the meticulously crafted hand-made objects. Handsome style and careful design create that elusive sense of balance between vintage and contemporary aesthetic.



    FRAGILE Gallery by Atelier Mendini and Studiopepe // Milan, Italy.

    24th March

    Alessandro and Francesco Mendini of Atelier Mendini, in collaboration with Studiopepe, recently opened the doors of their new two-storey Milanese gallery Fragile. Forget neutral spaces with toned-down style, and brace yourself for loads of personality and character – the pieces on show are linked in an unconventional way, becoming the main part of the exhibition as a developer of style and ideas. An innovative and active design hub, the showroom aims to produce a whole retail concept characterised by irony and strong personality that matches Fragile’s precious collection of historic design pieces.

    Gamsei Cocktail Bar by Buero Wagner // Munich, Germany.

    7th March

    Never mind the fact we initially thought this was an interior of a milk-bar (rather than an artisan cocktail bar of alcoholic variety), the beautifully crafted space is a little jewellery box carefully designed, resolved and detailed within an inch of it’s life. The Munich bar interior, designed by Fabian A. Wagner of Buero Wagner with Andreas Kreft, pays tribute to the local Bavarian culture and craftsmanship.



    Hanna Krüger Transforms Rosenthal Porcelain into Lamps & Vases.

    6th March

    The ‘Pila’ series, meaning ‘pile’ in italian is a unique and unconventional assemblage of different plates by German designer Hanna Krüger from the Rosenthal Studio Line. The design ‘Pila’ stacks china plates and transforms them into vases and lamps with reference from everyday life – where plate piles are created for pragmatic reasons, for washing up in the sink or stashed in the cupboard. The design also demonstrates that the clash of forms, stories and time can develop a completely new aesthetic dimension.
