Eiffel Wall Lamp by COCO&CO EDITION

Back when minimalism was new on the scene, less is more was a radical statement. It’s an aspiration that still applies, but today’s reduced aesthetics are all grown-up and have a few new demands to match. Bourg-en-Bresse-based label COCO&CO EDITION puts a French touch on stylistic reduction, an approach the Eiffel Wall Lamp exemplifies with every sculptural line. Easily adjusted for hanging height by simply feeding the cable through the 180º pivoting rod, the epoxy-painted steel Eiffel is produced within 50 kilometres of the label’s office to uphold the most important of all new minimalism’s tenets: minimal environmental impact.

40 cm Cutting Board by MOEBEL COMPAGNIE

What use can the sharpest knife be on a sub-par cutting board? It’s time to part with never-fully-clean, bacteria-growing plastic cutting mats in favour of something more durable—something that can age with grace, but without losing its quality. The cutting boards by young Munich-based label MOEBEL COMPAGNIE are sustainably made from oak and elm wood sourced in the Teutoburg forest and come equipped with colourful powder-coated steel handles for a better grip. Use them for chopping, cutting, or as a serving tray—these durable boards will be your kitchen companions for decades to come.

Turku 7 Lampshade by Cameron Design House

Inspired by and named after the hometown of the designer’s mother, Turku, Finland, Cameron Design House’s oak lighting creations shine with meticulously geometric forms. With lines reminiscent of Finnish design traditions, the Turku Pendant Lamp is strongly influenced by the stunning vistas and seaside forests along the country’s coasts. Each shade is made from 62 individually-cut oak pieces, which form a strong, solid structure once the last piece is added. The Turku’s elegant, architectural luminescence is the crowning finish for any room, large or small.

Outline Round Clock by WertWerke

Time is the most elusive and ephemeral of all things, so if you’re looking to quantify it, you’re best served doing so on something heavy and permanent, something that can claim a grounded material presence. Solid and elegant, this clock by Berlin-based label WertWerke displays the minutes and hours with slim hands in an outline style that glide almost silently above its concrete surface. The contrasting natural tone of the ash indicators floating above the cool of the hand-poured concrete makes this clock a durably constructed modern accent sure to pass the test of time.
