What do you get when you have two Canadian brothers coming from a background in construction and industrial manufacturing collaborate on a collection of object design? Dazzling pieces of furniture, that are one of a kind, in colour runs that make us dream!

You might have heard about Danish designer, Stine Mikkelsen, and her experimental objects. Her geometric structures are tastefully simple and are made of fascinatingly intricate materials. Her priority in design actually lays with the materials, which comes from her background in textile design and the intensive research she does for each collection. Stine experiments with the raw materials drawn from her inspiration and creates the new, this process gives her object a truly natural touch.
We are in love with collectible Object and Set designer Valentina Cameranesi and the world she is able to create. Her work is tender but modern and brings us a refreshing take on classic Italian design. Being influenced by Italy and its abundance of history and design and the appropriation of 1980's and 90's culture makes her work feels very authentic yet contemporary with a sensual twist.
The latest collection of Swedish object designer Jonatan Nilsson, which we fell in love with, exists out of ombre coloured blown glass vases. They are uniquely textured by the wooden molds he uses to shape them in, which echoes an Image of ripples in water. The different forms of the vases come from the rearrangement of the molds; they take on many different shapes and forms and are truly beautifully expressive.
