Funiculi Floor Lamp by Lluís Porqueras for Marset
Floor Lamp by UNCUT in iron, steel, copper and brass.
The separation between art and design isn’t always easy to pinpoint. For Milan-based label UNCUT it also isn’t something it wants to define. Rather, the intersection of the two fields is the location from which the label seeks to create—and what it creates is beautiful interiors. Its TheKeep Floor Lamp, handcrafted by Italian craftsmen, is a stunning example of the label’s exceptional balance between its two main inspirations. The combination of materials, like the collective personalities behind the design, embraces urban impressions and minimalist elegance. Art by design.
Cafetière by FREUD
Dimly lit, smoky Art Deco interiors, eclectic clientèle sweeping in and out, and elegant platters of Sachertorte: the days of watching the world go by in a post-War Viennese coffee houses are, perhaps, long gone. But it was by this spirit that David Freud was inspired to start his first café-bar in London in 1986. Twenty-eight years on, FREUD is still going strong and at its heart lies a fascination with the virtues of excellent design. Its evolution into classic kitchenware has produced indispensable items such as this elegant stainless-steel cafetière, whose small size means you don’t have to resort to instant coffee for just a cup or two. Its French press plunger system, contrasting materials, and simple lines will invoke the avant-garde in any coffee-brewing ritual.
