Bench Mould Mirrors

In the line of Running Mould, where a zinc profile was pushed through wet plaster to sculpt a bench, Bench Mould Mirrors give a new interpretation of the artisanal technique of making plaster cornices found in classical architecture.
The Mirrors complete a series composed of Bench Mould Funriture and Shelves/Glithero

Trivet Stick

A triangular stand for pots and pans. When not in use, it can straighten out to be stored with cooking spoons and spatulas. 2 magnets make a simple and effective hinge/Klauser and Carpenter

Canteen Table

We were asked by Canteen restaurants to design a “cost effective table suitable for commercial and residential applications”. Rather than a standalone table, we chose to design a universal table leg. Drawing on the BA chair by Ernest Race, which Canteen were using in their restaurants, we decided that cast aluminium would be the perfect process and material. The Leg fixes directly to the underside of a tabletop. Its integral strength eliminates the need for any additional bracing. The legs are available in combination with a range of different table tops. Alternatively they come as a set of legs only for self-assembly/Klauser and Carpenter

1 Mould = X vases

A plaster mould is created from a hand turned vase. The life of a common plaster mould allows for use of up to 70 times. This project is based on the reproduction of a mould until it is worn out. The vase would be replicated as many times as the mould would allow.
The extraction of the vase from the mould would be done without any sort of retouching, making the mould
’s wear visible in the final result/apparatu

Table Light

A medium sized light ideal for a desk, table or side table. Composed of a painted outer and polished inner stainless steel hemisphere, painted steel post, maple wood base and 60w half mirrored globe bulb (G40). Inspired by the specular reflections and rays of light, the design is heavily weighted on function and has a strong graphical presence.The goal was to create a light that would illuminate the table surface as well as the ceiling while leaving the space in-between free from direct light. The half mirrored globe bulb reflects all the light down and onto the table surface while reflecting the light captured in the hemisphere upward where the warmth of the textured yellow post is added to the ceiling and surroundings.When seen from above the surroundings are reflected in the mirrored bulb while acting as the shade preventing the light from shinning into the person’s eyes.The maple wood base adds warmth and feeling to the strong graphic/geometric composition of the lamp.The lamp is finished off with a white braided electrical cord/Lukas Peet

Spotlight Volumes

Inspired by spotlights, these pendant lights have an energy efficient CFL light bulb at either end. One illuminates the ceiling and the other the floor. The outer surface is coated in gloss paint, while the inner is hand painted with a brushed pale matte yellow to contrast the strong overall shape of the lights. The smooth gloss finish of the outside also contrasts with the texture of the visible strokes on the inside. The Yellow of the inner shade is added to the light through diffusion, adding warmth to the cfl Bulb. The two finishes are divided by the polished steel edge. The lights hang from their braided electrical cord and a 1mm steel cable due to the overall weight. The physical connection of the electrical cord also communicates a clear separation of the two ‘volumes’ of the two shades/Lukas Peet

The Slab Vases

The Slab Vases consist of rings of Silestone, which have been slipped over a metal bracket to create a sculptural vase. The rings vary in size and are cut so the shape of the vase changes with each assembly. The material is of Iberian origin, but Scandinavian sensibilities run through the Slab Vases project. The material comes in a wide range of colours. Form Us With Love has worked with different shades of grey as well as tones of hot red and orange/form us with love

The Bento chair is a prime example of what One Nordic represents – it’s founded in Nordic design ideology in terms of material and form, combined with the playfulness of mechanical toys and the functionality of Japanese lunch boxes. “The broad legs are a wink at the tradition of bending wood, but at the same time it’s a bit bold. It’s definitely messing with your preconceptions of Nordic design”, says designer PetrusPalmér from Form Us With Love. All Bento products are shipped in semi-flat boxes in order to ease global transportation and save storage space. Once at your doorstep, you can easily assemble the chair in just four simple steps. The chair will be available in in black, white and turquoise/form us with love

What’s special about the way Bento is assembled?

We didn’t want to make flat-packed furniture that would require tools. We tried to find a way to make it as easy and enjoyable for the customer as possible. That’s why we decided to go for no tools, no instructions. It should be as easy as it could be, and that’s basically the idea.

What is the most important element of the design?

Instant likeability. We wanted to make sure that Bento is clear in its design in the sense that the viewer instantly “gets” what the chair or the table is all about. That the furniture communicates with its form, style and material what the idea behind the design is.

Hoof table

The main inspiration for the Hoof tables starts from the foot detail. I have always loved the painted wooden chairs that have the end of the legs left as natural wood so that the paint doesn’t chip off if kicked or knocked. The leg ends of the table are sharpened at the foot – like a horse’s hoof is trimmed before it is shod. This detail has derived from continuous exploration and development of production techniques. The fine edge of the tables is created from the soft chamfer being on the top and bottom. This also gives the tables a tactile feel and clearly shows that the tables are made from solid wood. The foot detail is created by reversing the usual production process; most furniture details, which have a painted section and a natural part, are assembled, masked off, and then painted. Hoof is painted first, then cut back to produce the unique detail/Samuel Wilkinson

Seppl - espresso machine in porcelain

The qualities of porcelain like high thermal storage, neutrality in taste and an antiseptic surface are making the material ideal for the use in food context. The machine is attached on the wall. This helps keeping work space free and relieves the operability.The single components are seperatly affixed and completely visible. This makes the process of coffee preparation comprehensible for the user/Arvid Haeusser

In A Pinch

In A Pinch is a shelving system consisting of flattened steel tubes and plywood shelves/Arttu Kuisma
