Stelton with the Collar up

Adored Danish tableware brand Stelton (check out your Mum’s cupboards- she will have one of their gravy boats or definitely a vacuum jug) has worked with the Italian design duo, Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri, to create the Collar collection especially for all coffee aficionados. We definitely fall into that bracket.

Stelton collar range

For the astute coffee drinker, nothing is more important than flavour (and a nice shaped cup that feels right we always think.) The classic, Italian coock-top espresso maker, also known as a “Moka Pot”, is the utmost tool for creating a professional, full-bodied brew at home. Collar has a perfect silhouette with Stelton’s lauded Scandinavian design aesthetics.

Although the range was created last year, the matte black and on-trend gold and beech finishes make sure that these pieces don’t need to be hidden way in cupboards and are utterly timeless.

Mini Happy Planner

We love organising and stationery so very much. There’s nothing like a stroll through Hay or Present and Correct and coming out with a months’ rent’s worth of rulers and desktop filing trays in copper. Although their website is a little overwhelming and garish, the brand Happybags have got their planners bang on.

Cloth & Clay’s Nordic

So, people seem to be throwing this term Hygge around willy nilly at the moment. It’s one of those words that we reckon is a bit of a fancy fad, but we do love the images it conjures up. Hygge (pronounced “hue-gah”) is a Danish word with no literal English translation that roughly encompasses a cosy feeling or atmosphere and the pleasure in making ordinary, every day actions feel special and meaningful.

Barbican New Gift Shop

It’s getting to that time of year. It’s too early to properly think about the festive season, but the shops keep displaying tantalising nit bits that would be great under the tree. The Barbican are one step ahead with gifts that not only look good but we wouldn’t mind receiving as well as giving.

Barbican

The Barbican is launching a new 330sqm retail space in the foyers this autumn. With a focus on the Barbican’s programme, its architectural and design legacy, the shop will also shine a spotlight on up and coming design talent.

Designers have been exclusively commissioned to reinterpret the Barbican’s incredible visual conventions into a retail context. This has resulted in brand new capsule collections from brands including Alfred & Wilde, Kate Farley, Lindsay Lang amongst other key designer makers. The result is a collection of impeccably designed objects that subtly convey the gravitas of the building. We are particular fans of these cool mugs by Aandersson. The shapes that would be cast by the shadows would be particularly pleasing.

Hackney based jewellery designer Hannah Davis’s pieces from her brand Wolf and Moon will also be in the new shop.

Rive Roshan at LDF

Rive Roshan were commissioned by the London Design Fair to create an installation of five large hanging screens for the venue’s cafe using Divina fabric by Kvadrat. It’s the first time we have heard of this London-based design studio and we like what we see. Airy spacial partitions of modular panels separated the space playfully as partially open windows between communal tables, adding softness to the industrial backdrop of the Old Truman Brewery.
