meet muuto

Inspired by the Finnish word muutos, means new perspective, Muuto is a brand that is offering something fresh in the form of products. They have a simple, single premise — they "handpick the brightest design talent in Scandinavia and give them the freedom to express their individual story through everyday objects. Some want to alter the world, others find passion in colour and shape and others still, draw deeply from personal experience. How do they see a vase, a lamp or any other everyday product?"

To many of us, Scandinavian design already signifies style and sensibility. with Muuto, we are seeing a new wave of talent reach our doorstep, or desk, or wall. Muuto is available at Flea & Cents and in stores around the world.

james & jake

The inventive genes seem to be working really well in the Dysons. James Dyson is reputed for his bagless vacuum cleaner while his younger son Jake has inherited his father's inquisitive mind and developed this CSYS LED Task Light which refines thermal management and electronics systems producing a bright warm white colour with astonishing efficiency. The thermal management heat pipe technology cools the LED’s to ensure peak performance from the LED’s for 37+ years.  The design reminds me of the Artemide One Line Flu Table Lamp.

hello to innermost

Founded by Steve Jones and Russell Cameron, Innermost turns lighting into sculpture, and the London and Hong Kong-based company has opened a new showroom at 248 Hollywood Road. Both the space, with its concertina glass facade, and products inside are offbeat and unique, and we couldn't resist peering through at the windows last week before the shop's official opening. Their collaborations with other designers, and passion for pushing the envelope will certainly go noticed in Hong Kong's growing creative community. innermost1.jpg
