Strips

Designed by:
Cina Boeri

Why we love it: It’s
a beautiful, classic design, with just the right amount of puffy. All
the padding, none of the cell! In blue velvet, it doesn’t get much
cooler!

Where you can get it:

Arflex is now stocked by Poliform in Australia

Hayón for KUTANI CHOEMON

title 

 

Designed by: Jaime Hayón

Why we love it: Hayón has applied his now infamous whimsical charm to this recent collection with Japanese porcelain company Choemon. The classic blue on white aesthetic is given new life by his exploration of shape, pattern and technique.

Pattern Chair

Designed by: Arik Levy

Why we love it: This beautiful chair comes in more than just blue, but we love it in this bright hue. The moulded sheet metal chair is suitable for outdoor use and the hexagonal cut-out pattern gives an almost weightless quality.

KE-ZU

Batucada homewares

Designed by: Jahara Studio

Why we love it: The beautiful homewares are made from recycled scrap aluminium. Batucada is actually Brazilian Portuguese for the sound made by banging old aluminium tins together – common at festivals. Gorgeous in blue!

Capo

Designed by:
Doshi Levien for Cappellini

Why we love it: This rigid-form chair gives the sitter a position of command. It feels a little like something Dr. Evil would sit on (if only it swivelled!), but is a lot of fun and beautifully resolved.

Where you can get it:

Cappellini – stocked in Australia through Corporate Culture

Designed by: DING3000

Why we love it: We spotted these clever cutlery pieces earlier this year at Maison et Objet in Paris. These plastic cutlery sets become like mini table sculptures when they clip easily together. Proving that you don’t always have to bring out the best silverware to get the dinner party started.

iPad 2 Smart Cover

title 


Designed by: Apple

Why we love it: If you get excited by beautifully designed technology, then no doubt you’ve been enticed by the latest offering from Apple, the iPad 2. One of the most interesting additions to this new model was the magnetic Smart Cover. We love it in blue polyurethane, or you can go for the navy in leather!

The Beetle Ring

Designed by:
Dinosaur Designs

Why we love it: This beautiful ring is part of the new Insects collection. The Dinosaurs told us that the collection was the result of research into the insect kingdom and their individual forms. This ring is made with resin in vibrant blue.
