In his latest collection of work, 105 ltr Formen, German designer Fabio Vogel presents vases that are created using an experimental technique involving fireproof fabric forms and blown glass, whereby the glass takes on the texture and detail of the mold. Vogel’s method combines traditional glass-making handcraft with modern technology, allowing the element of fire to direct each unique piece, revealing patterns and character such as the fabric’s folds, curves, and stitches.

Lynea Plug Lamp by Human Home

Lynea, by Los Angeles-based studio Human home, is a lamp designed to imitate hardwired lighting, but instead of requiring an electrical installation, is simply anchored by, and directly plugs into a wall outlet, making for a seamless design that offers the appearance of a floor lamp or wall sconce, while also saving space.

Consisting of aluminum hardware that is floated off the wall by a wooden peg, Lynea features milled brass accents and is topped by a blown opal glass globe. Each lamp is handcrafted in-house at Human home, in the Arts District of Los Angeles, and is available in flat black or white powder-coated finishes, in 28” or 40” height options.

Vipp Loft, Copenhagen

Vipp, the Danish company most known for their metal pedal bin, introduced in 1939, continues to reach into multiple facets of design, this time with their self-service concept hotel. Rather than a multi-room complex, the Vipp hotel consists of single spaces in multiple locations. Their first, the Vipp shelter, a prefab the company debuted a couple of years ago, is now available nightly, and sits in the Swedish wilderness. Most recently, the brand opened the doors to Vipp loft, a 400-square-meter space atop an old printing factory in Copenhagen, that also houses the Vipp office. Conceptualized by Studio David Thulstrup, the loft frames the brand’s design philosophy, and offers all the comforts of a home, including a fully outfitted Vipp kitchen and dining area, three outdoor terraces, and fireplace. Vipp’s “rooms” have a stocked fridge, bath products by Aèsop, bedding by Aiayu, and the brand’s own organic cotton towels. Vipp plans to add more “rooms” to the hotel line, including Chimney House, a landmark building that was once a water pumping station near the harbor of northern Copenhagen.

Acrobat Lighting by Porcelain Bear

Australian design studio Porcelain Bear’s latest lighting series, Acrobat, is inspired by the gracefully dangerous moves of aerial performers. The modular lighting fixtures, available in multiple metal finishes, feature lit translucent porcelain arms, supported by a metal trapeze, which is suspended from a minimal ceiling plate. The ingenious shades employ LED technology which is diffused by the porcelain to create a warmer glow. The Acrobat fixtures are available in multiple bent-metal configurations as well as Flatbar, which simply consists of a balanced bar with shades at opposing ends.

Add Stool by ASK
Add by ASK (Atelier Steffen Kehrle) is a elegant, versatile design manufactured by German studio and wood shop Stattmann Neue Moebel. To be used as a stool or small table, the stackable form consists of three bent wood legs and a perfectly balanced round seat; the fine grain of sustainably-forested ash, and a sophisticated palette of stain options elevate a piece of furniture that is often considered utilitarian.

Bavarian-born Steffen Kehrle designs a broad spectrum of products and objects, in industrial, cultural, and museum contexts. Imaginative, but mindful of furniture’s design history, Kehrle rethinks and modernizes references through his use of form and detail.

Stattmann Neue Moebel, the fourth-generation label of a wood workshop located near the village of Ascheberg, Germany, specializes in carpentry and fine wood work, implementing modern designs to a traditional approach of construction.

Bringing Green Inside with Yard Etc.

This warm season, many city dwellers wont be afforded the opportunity to reap the benefits of working in the garden; from the meditative time spent with nature, to the responsibility of nurturing living things, the very act of gardening has been proven to improve quality of life, but isn’t an option for all of us. Be it houseplants, fresh-cut flowers and farmers’ market produce, or simply what you wash your hands with, perhaps bringing more “green” inside is the best way to stay summer sane.

Yard Etc. is a collection designed for garden enthusiasts, by garden enthusiasts in Sweden. The brand philosophy eschews gloves, and understands the true gardener’s desire to get their hands in the dirt (and make the cleanup process equally gratifying). With plant-based, effective formulations, from an outstanding green tomato hand soap to their reparative hand balm, Yard Etc.’s handsomely-packaged line covers all bases, whether you’re the gardener of estate grounds or a single succulent.

Christmas Fir Cabin Spray by Juniper Ridge

Juniper Ridge Cabin Spray

All too often, evergreen candles and room sprays smell more like the grocery store cleaning aisle than an actual forest, not the case with Juniper Ridge’s Christmas Fir Cabin Spray.

If this isn’t your year for a fresh-cut tree, or you just love the fragrance of the outdoors inside, forgo the synthetic candle recreation and go straight to the source: utilizing traditional methods of steam-distillation, enfleurage, tincture, and infusion, the spray is made from fir, cedar, and pine, all wild-harvested in the Pacific Northwest.

Juniper Ridge

Juniper Ridge

Founded in 1998 by wilderness enthusiast Hall Newbegin, Juniper Ridge approaches fragrance in a way that is both industry defiant and historic, as the techniques used are the same as 100 years ago. Forgoing mass production, synthetics, and excessive description, the scents speak entirely for themselves, and rely on nature to dictate the notes, harvest-to-harvest.

Juniper Ridge

If you’re more interested in provenance, Juniper Ridge has a collection of cabin sprays, each dedicated to its place of harvest, as well as their complete line of personal fragrance and product.
