This week was Clerkenwell Design week in London. In short, I sifted through the wealth of design on display and honed in on the products that I found aesthetically pleasing. Here’s a selection of what I liked.
Above are The Dots by Muuto, hanger of coats, but also seen used as door pulls. They usually come in oak, yellow, black and light grey.
Above are this season’s new colours.The contrast of the pastel pink and deep green-grey would look great together in a hallway wall, whereas the red Dots could provide much colour relief for any monotonous interior scheme.
I am liking the clean lines of those mint colour coated aluminium lights. The latter would look great in an interior when combined with other pastel shades such as pale pink or yellow.
This Boet (nest in Swedish) bar stool by Note Design studio is beautiful in its quirky simplicity. It is contemporary in form with a cork seat and slimline tripod legs, yet the blue is one that is reminescent of a vintage furniture era.
These giant Button cushions on white metal legs by Form us with Love for Mitab looked inviting. Yes, I was tempted to sit on the display whilst lugging my bag packed full of catalogues and leaflets. The lovely exhibitor told me the interesting story behind the piece – apparently the inspiration came from when the designer visited a textile factory. Confronted by all the wastage in material, the idea for a large patchwork cushion chair was borne.
Lastly, the Ivy shelf from Swedese caught my eye. Admittedly this is not a new product, in the sense that it has already been in the market for a few years. I like the modular concept of the piece, creating a shape that challenges a contemporary notion of clean cut symmetry whilst producing a feature that is both modern and attention grabbing.
That is my round up of Clerkenwell design week. I hope you enjoyed it. I’m off to Berlin today for the Hive conference. So excited. Wishing my lovely readers a wonderful weekend. x
