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


Lightness and heaviness, lines and lumps, smoothness and roughness, coldness and warmth... All materials and forms balance through the course of colliding and confronting within one volume/Seung Yong Song


I yearn for a nomadic life, traversing a continent and crisscrossing meadows. With setting a fire and pitching a simple tent, there will be soon their home. I try imitating them in my dark house. Rong's wire is long enough to make me a nomad within the house. From living room to bedroom, bedroom to kitchen, kitchen to... There is no place it cannot reach. Everywhere in the house becomes my own space/Seung Yong Song
Designed by London-based designers Goodwin + Goodwin, the Plus side table is a continuation of their Plus Desk. It was designed so that it could be assembled in moments without the need for any tools or fixings. The affordable table is made in the UK and comes neatly flat-packed in a small box with the legs sitting inside the top


These vasels, masks and sculptures utilize an old crafting technique in which rope or cord is coiled and stitched to forms bowls and baskets. The technique is itself based on the ancient method of making ceramic coiled pots as well as coiled basketry. The method explores ways of transforming a linear material into three-dimensional objects, an interest I have also studied in other materials such as yarn or plastic tubing. I also see the process as a form of analog 3D printing/prototyping performed by a sewing machine and with much less precision. In this way the "3D file" is in my head as I begin each piece and its formation happens by making certain adjustments to the work while sewing. The process has its own limitations, largely determined by the sewing machine, and each piece takes on deformations and glitches that give it unique personality.
The studies use the raw 100% cotton braided cord, often called sash cord, and colored sewing thread. They are individually sewn on an industrial zig-zag sewing machine without the use of forms or molds and allow me to explore ideas for larger works such as Rumpleskillskid/Doug Johnston
