The teak wooden pieces from Zara Home looks so gorgeous!

As you know when the teak is freshly milled it smells like leather, it is also valuable both for its elegance and its durability. Beyond its beauty, it also possesses some natural properties that other woods don't have.

Hawkins New York - quality and adaptable aesthetic by Juliana Sampaio

Hawkins New York - quality and adaptable aesthetic via @kronekern

Hawkins New York was born out of a palpable void in the lifestyle market for quality, accessible, home goods. Citing a lack of range in small-scale home goods production, Hawkins was founded on the aim to incorporate the concept of artisanal collective production, while maintaining a modern sensibility in design.

Built by the couple Nicholas Blaine and Paul Denoly, the brand is an all-encompassing marriage of their two design aesthetics. Nick, coming from a fashion and visual merchandising background brings a taste for clean, modern, and muted design. Paul, comes from a background in product development and buying. He offers a strong sensibility for color, texture, and organic form. In this vein, their line was born out of not only a feeling of necessity, but out of a personal lifestyle that presents a compelling confluence of design, place, + life.

They have in just five years time, built a brand that's become a solid reference point in American design. They're now splitting their time between New York, where they have stores in the city and in Hudson, and Los Angeles, where they've just opened their largest store and first on the West Coast at ROW DTLA. These images were courtesy taken via Need Supply this month, they hung out for an afternoon with Paul in the Hudson store and then met up with Nick in L.A. for a long chat about what it's taken to grown the brand, where you can read the post here.

Mupote Container by Artur de Menezes by Juliana Sampaio

Mupote Container by Artur de Menezes

MuPote has a minimalist design that combines functionality and aesthetic appeal.

With two different materials, glass and plastic, fixed by threads, the MuPote can be used in many different ways. From storage food to jewelry. The MuPote has two compartments to provide multi-purpose storage and enable the user to use the product as well as it wants. The glass compartments can be used to serve the food itself on the table, making the piece a tableware product too. By using contrasting materials, MuPote delivery good design and a contemporary beauty allied with quality and function.

Designed by Artur de Menezes a Brazilian industrial designer based in Barcelona (won the second prize in the student category of the Salão Design Award 2018 with his product Flor Armchair).

Snug by Sanna Völker - a brutalist yet delicate candle holder by Juliana Sampaio

Italian travertine

Italian travertine

Snug candle holders by Sanna Völker are handmade by stonemasons who have mastered their craft for four generations, dating back to 1880.

All pieces are made from natural stone leftovers, some up to 500 million years old, handpicked by the designer herself from a quarry located in a small mountain village in the province of Barcelona. Snug is a small, self produced project that celebrates local craft, quality material and emotional value.

The essence of the product is the material itself, expressed through a minimalist design. Stone is created and shaped by history, through shifting continents, seas and earthquakes. Some tell their story through banded layers, others through fossils. And it is here, in their sheer variation, that Snug finds its beauty.

The two candles are trapped by the material in what becomes a brutalist yet delicate candle holder. Snug is a story of craftsmanship, sustainability and transparency. Because the story behind the design is as important, and must be just as beautiful, as the finished piece.

Flight by Flos for Svenskt Tenn by Juliana Sampaio

Flight by Flos for Svenskt Tenn | www.kronekern.com

The charming Flight lamp series was designed by Michael Anastassiades and is manufactured by Flos for Svenskt Tenn.

The collection comprises a desk lamp, a hanging ceiling lamp and a flush mount ceiling light. All of the fixtures have an innovative form that evokes a soft, flying hot air balloon. The shade is made of a resinous material that is protected by a transparent surface. It’s a unique manufacturing method that gives the lamp its soft, cocoon-like look.

Michael Anastassiades originally created the Flight desk lamp for Svenskt Tenn’s “To be perfectly Frank” exhibition in the spring of 2013. It was designed as a contemporary interpretation of Josef Frank’s iconic 2349 desk lamp or the “China Ball” lamp, reminiscent of a typical Chinese rice paper lantern, but in a different form. The lamp is being re-launched in the late summer of 2018, this time with Flos as the manufacturer and partner.

Editor's Picks: Cream, Taupe and Anthracite by Juliana Sampaio

IKEA Livet Hemma: Autumn's warm brown tones + IVAR diy by Juliana Sampaio

IKEA Livet Hemma: Autumn's warm brown tones + IVAR diy | www.kronekern.com

Our favorite IVAR only needs a pair of layers of black semi-matt snare color and some tanned natural leather handles to match the Autumn's warm brown tones. Two great news are these incredible lamps and the brutal storage from series BROR.

Earlier this fall, BROR, the storage series, was said to be something of a heavy metal cousin to IVAR. Durable and sturdy in matt black powder-coated steel, it stands for the most part and is also easy to assemble. A wheelchair comes loaded, with what, all the favorite books and the first Christmas atmosphere! See all the details of the products used here

Pottery Collection by Vincent Van Duysen for When Objects Work by Juliana Sampaio

Pottery Collection by Vincent Van Duysen for When Objects Work | www.kronekern.com

The minimalist pottery collection by Vincent Van Duysen for When Objects Work.

Vincent van Duysen’s work is characterized by an interest in reinterpreting classical forms. His search for order and clarity produces designs which are both contemporary and innovative, but which have the force of perfect inevitability, setting off resonances that feel like memories: always new, but reminding us of things we have known.

Vincent van Duysen studied architecture at the higher institute of architecture Sint-Lucas in Ghent. Following two years in Milan, he returned to Belgium, setting up his own practice in Antwerp in 1990. The range of Van Duysen’s architectural practice is broad, with interior commissions for private houses, apartments, shops, restaurants and offices.

His commitments to the process of progressive refinement applied with equal distinction to both contemporary and historical contexts. He has also worked prolifically on a smaller scale, designing furniture and lighting.

Connected Spaces by Menu - Orgatec AW 2018 by Juliana Sampaio

At MENU, they believe in Connected Spaces. Spaces that unite our worlds through design, and make our transitions from one place to another seamless, interesting and enjoyable.

In their rapidly changing world, the distinctions between home and work have become increasingly blurred. The concept of Connected Spaces reflects this exciting shift and highlights our opportunities to create human, multi-functional places that serve our needs. Workplaces that make us to feel right at home. Homes that have the refinement of boutique hotels. Cafes, boutiques, restaurants,
and hotels that cater to our comfort and feel curated to our desires and aspirations.

Connected Spaces are a testimony to the future of design. By connecting the dots between home, work and hospitality, we can redefine how we use space – and, ultimately, how we connect to one another.

Euclides by Loehr by Juliana Sampaio

Euclides by Loehr | www.kronekern.com

Minimalism in balance. An upholstered seat is held in a apparently floating position by a light tubular steel frame. Its generous seating area offers a comfortable position, which encourages conversation. A wide range of fabrics, leathers and an either powder-coated or mirror-polished frame underlines the cosmopolitan, accommodating character. Euclides is available as an armchair or two-seater and is perfectly supplemented with Plato as an ottoman or bench in a seating group. Both products have been designed for public areas, reception areas and transit areas, but can also be used in private homes.
