Garden Hose Reel by Zee Design
Functionality and design are not mutually exclusive, something Belgian label Zee Design proves beautifully with their collection of colourful hose reels that add a cheery touch to any garden or courtyard. A stable ABS plastic exterior protects the 10 m long hose against any bruising or intense sunlight and the wall bracket includes screws and plugs for easy attachment to shed or house—a true transformation from gardening tool to design object.
In 1984, the words Eastern Bloc took on a new meaning: Tetris. Fast forward 30 years and Berlin-based label onkto katuh is putting a playful twist on the concept of Soviet power, taking Cold War era Russia’s most successful cultural export as the inspiration behind their Tetriplug collection. This reduced version features a single Bakelite plug and sleek black cable perfect for keeping a small reminder of Korobeiniki-blasting days gone by in sophisticatedly grown-up interiors.
