#IndustrialDesigner #AlfredoHäberli was born in #Argentina, then trained in Switzerland where he is now based. Whilst his creations span an impressive range of modalities, his #designs are known for combining traditional form with a playful twist, inspired by his childhood curiosity.  The #AlfredoCollection was created for #GeorgJensen in #2011, to include items for kitchen and dining. The  range was expanded in 2015 to include over 20 objects for the #home.

Since the #QingDynasty, wealthy #chinese could be seen taking their caged #birds to parks. "A bird cage holder" became a derogatory term describing an idle person who contributed nothing useful.  Later, carrying a #birdcage and taking a walk became the hobby of the elderly and symbolic of a tasteful lifestyle. The birds themselves could learn songs from other birds through this form of socialisation.  #Tea originated in china, and with it comes a rich tradition of tea culture and practices…

The ever popular #UltimaThule range from #IIttala was inspired by the melting ice in #Lapland. The term "Ultima Thule" was used long ago to refer to a place beyond the known world.  Certainly the textural quality of the #glasswork evokes imagery of far away #icy vistas.  Designer #TapioWirkkala spent thousands of hours perfecting glass-blowing techniques required to produce the effect on the Ultima Thule glassware. He initially created the ice-like texture by carving it into a graphic mould…

#HenningKoppel's #Eel #dish or #platter was released in #1956 just 2 years after his ground breaking fish dish.  Much like his previous work, the Eel (or model #1054) is hailed as a #masterpiece of #Danish #silver.  This is no easy piece to make.  A master #silversmith may spend as many as 550 hours making this #CoveredDish.  The challenge lies in keeping the lid flush with the bottom all the way along it's 71.5cm edge.  Likewise, it's not an easy piece to purchase, and whether you're…

#ArneJacobsen is well known for being an #industrialdesigner and #Architect. He was a strong believer of #Gesamtkunst, meaning the complete #design of every aspect of a space, including the furniture.  Indeed many of his most famous works were made to compliment specific architectural works.  When #Jacobsen designed the #AarhusCityHall in #Denmark with #ErikMoller in #1937, he not only designed the furniture but also created the doorknobs, light-fittings and even a custom hand-drawn…

The #9098 #peppermill and #MGSAL #SaltCastor were part of #MichaelGraves collection of #household products for #Alessi.  Graves' Kettle from the same range is Alessi's all time best seller and his #salt and #pepper set are also iconic of their era.  Graves was best known as a #postmodern #American #architect and his fun, playful style is reflected in his #homewares.  His line remains ever popular whilst many post-modern works have fallen in popularity in favour of a return to a more #modern…

For a lot of people #Easter is associated with eating #eggs and #fish.  It seems that this #Goldfish  #eggcup from #Alessi may have been made for the occasion.  The #GoldFishEggCup's true origins lie with the National Museum of #Taiwan.  They commissioned Alessi to develop a range that would encourage greater awareness of #Chinese culture and #art in the west.  #Designers #StefanoGiovannoni and #RumikoTakeda created the Goldfish cup as part of a range of eastern influenced items.  This fine…
