Musa by Note Design Studio - a lamp of organic qualities

Musa is a minimalist lamp designed by Stockholm-based studio Note Design Studio for Vibia. Musa is a lamp of organic qualities that attract the eye due to its lighting function. A delicate and elegant design where a symbiotic interaction is established between the small hand blown opal glass-sphere and the dish that holds and reflects it. The distinctive composition of two circles, one of light and the other of support, marks its balanced formal expression and its functional performance as a lamp. The slightly textured concave aluminium base captures the light from the simple diffuser and amplifies it smoothly.

Place & Thing by MSDS Studio - a group of lighting objects for Aesop

Place & Thing is a minimalist collection of lighting objects created by Toronto-based designer MSDS Studio for Aesop. ‘Place & Thing’ is a group of lighting objects that explore rituals of personal care, scent manufacture, and domestic objects. Each item is abstracted from a thing found in the home. Closer inspection will reveal a ladle, mirror, bowl, cupboard, mortar and pestle, basin, and, in the front window, a landscape. The items are made in wood – some sandblasted to accentuate the natural grain – and a range of materials, colors, and forms taken from Aesop products. The group comprises a domestic tableau that synthesizes Aesop and MSDS Studio’s shared interest in space, material, and experience.

Mediterranean Inspired Cement Tiles designed by the stylist Sarah Ellison

Inspired by her travels in the Mediterranean and her day-to-day life in Byron Bay, stylist Sarah Ellison had a different vision for the living rooms of Australia. Her debut collection of cement tiles for Teranova, which we’re featuring exclusively today, is a nod to the decorative floors of the Mediterranean, in a colour palette that evokes the craggy Australian landscape. The half-moon shape of West Coast references the sun setting over the Margaret River in Western Australia; a more organic shape was inspired by shell formations on Ellison’s favourite beach. If you’re anything like us, you’re already planning a renovation.

Candy Collection: Helle Mardahl designs lamps based on childhood memories of sweet shops

These colourful blown-glass lamps were imagined by Danish designer Helle Mardahl as giant pieces of candy.

Each piece is designed to recall the experience that came with visiting the old confectionary stores, specifically "the colours, the textures, the desire, and the childlike anticipation".

The collection features designs in a variety of shapes and sizes, based on the different sweets that might be found in a confectioner's glass containers, known as bonbonnières.
