Curator: the reduction of details by relying only on the outline and colour to define the animal, allows you to freely imagine what you can do with the figurines.
Dutch designer Floris Hovers designed this series of wooden animals. The shapes of the animals go back to the absolute essential, and the combination between colour and shape results in a strong composition the designer is most known for.
Curator: there is nothing to distract you from the beauty of the material and the quality of craftsmanship.
The pen and cap is precision machined from a single bar of solid brass or aluminium.
Curator: quintessentially Japanese, without anything unnecessary and exude quality.
An elegant bento with a clean design, with that minimalistic Japanese touch. There are two layer compartments and the upper layer is separated by a tight fitting seal to ensure freshness. The 2 layers are held together with a matching elastic band.
Curator: do we need another clock? yes, if it calms instead of hurry us.
A minimal clock where the user can use any plate and glass of their choice. The balls float on the water to display the time. It consists of a ceramic base topped with a pair of magnetic spheres. Underneath the ceramic surface of the base is a pair of powerful magnets. The “hands” of the clock are in the shape of two small orbs. The orbs are magnetic and buoyant, so if you fill up a glass with water, they actually float to the surface and then move in a circular path to tell the current time.
Curator: we like the smallness, the simplicity and the colour combination.
Japan’s most imaginative and artfully crafted lighters. The lighter fits perfectly into any small bag or pocket and makes a stylish tool for lighting candles or incense.
Curator: A simple case that is well made and without any unnecessary parts.
The pencil case is designed to be produced efficiently and with the minimum used of materials.
Curator: the clean design magnifies the quality of the function
Simple in design and made from Japanese stainless steel with a comfortable rubber handle. The matt black style has Teflon coating on it to prevent any glue from sticking on it.
Curator: it is like a little treasure box, cleverly made by the simplest method with charming material.
Small pills or accessories boxes with lid in solid brass.
Curator: it did not attempt to “outshine” the candle but announce it’s presence with it’s own quiet beauty.
The tall, simple design of this candle holder adds a modern twist to a classic object and creates an elegant accent in any living or dining room. Machined from solid brass, it demonstrates the impressive weight of brass and the precision of the tool used to form it.
Curator: the glasses looked homogenous at one glance but closer scrutiny reveals the varying height of the stem of the glasses, enhancing the already beautiful glassware.
Mouth blown into the mould, this set of four glasses features a beautiful ripple surface. The vertical ripples add a strong and sophisticated look and the varied geometric shapes create dynamic and energy between the glasses and function as a stackable design element.
Curator: finally! the neglected bulky power adaptor has a new champion for good design
This power adaptor combines the functions of a power strip and a travel adapter, but with reduced size to create the perfect travel solution.
