The Scotish designer, Nick Ross was the responsible for the design of Darkly Mirror which is an exquisite piece that explores the relationship between mankind and reflections. This wall mirror takes the shape of ceramic bowls due to the designers’ fascination over the inconclusiveness of what the earliest set of mirrors looked like – “That it cannot be proven adds to the object’s mystery. Is this a new object, or an old one reinvented? I wanted to take this notion and create a modern object which questioned its possible past and its relation to ‘the self’.”
Representing the boundaries between minimalist sculpture and practical objects, the Socket Occasional Lamp was designed by Danish studio Norm Architects. Geometric jewelry was the main source of inspiration behind this unique lamp best characterized by a heavy lamp cast from brass.
The Designers explained that “In our work, we aim for geometrical purity, We want to arrive at the maximum expressivity with the minimum of expression. It’s not about designing less of the product. It’s about soft, streamlined shapes that invite you to touch them.”In addition, this innovating piece was made to fit any type of desk, shelf or nook.
This astonishing Tailor Sofa was designed by the Portuguese artist Rui Alves and the inspiration for this design came from the designer’s memories of his grandfather favorite tailor shops.

Nothing would be hidden, as is normally done in sofa design. The sofa is meant to be seen from all sides.”
