Design classic; Dorothee Becker organiser


Designed in 1969, but still in production by Vitra. This very clever organiser Utensilo. I fit well into any of the era’s that passed after it was designed. Plastic fantastic 70’s, bare 80’s and all the revivals of these since. But it’s timeless and simple design make it fit for any trend or style anyway. And it’s very practical!

Utensilo by Dorothee Becker

Created by Dorothee Becker it comes in three different colours: white, black and red. Try finding one on sites like eBay, but if you fail, there are lots of online shops selling new ones staring at around $250.

Project Vitra began in 1957 in Birsfelden near Basel with the production of the furniture of Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson. Today Vitra is active and known throughout the world for its products and cultural initiatives, which are evidenced by the Vitra Design Museum, its collections, and the architecture of the firm s own corporate campus. Vitra sees itself first and foremost as a project driven by the desire and determination to design the world.

This ambition is also the driving force behind Project Vitra, which offers an inside look at the firm s collaboration with architects and designers, including Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Alexander Girard, Tibor Kalman, Frank Gehry, Tadao Ando, SANAA, Jasper Morrison, Zaha Hadid, Hella Jongerius, Maarten Van Severen, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Jean Prouvé, Mario Bellini, Antonio Citterio, Alberto Meda, Verner Panton, Herzog and de Meuron, and many others. The copiously illustrated chapters with contributions by Alex Coles, Rolf Fehlbaum, Luis Fernandez-Galiano, Deyan Sudjic, and Alexander von Vegesack tell stories about the places, people, and products connected with Vitra. This overview is rounded off by a history of the firm and a comprehensive glossary.

Mazzeto Blanco ‘fireplace’.


This wonderfully designed wall mounted bioalcohol fireplace caught my eye.
It is kitsch and sleek at the same time, making it timeless already.

 

Mazzeto Blanco by Redwitz

 

It’s designed by German design duo Redwitz, headed by Sylvia and Lukas Redwitz. Their own website describes their work as follows:

Sylvia and Lukas Redwitz design objects deeply rooted in the tradition of their craft while using their very own language of form. Their aim is to always seize the essence of an object. The two designers are concerned with the entire process of making: from the concept and design of an object to its production and finishing. Due to this creative process their unique style is developed: minimal and distinct.

Ralph Lauren Home collection bedding in the Homevoyeurs webshop


Cape Lodge Plantation Chair and Noble Estate Chaise from Ralph Lauren Home Collection

 

OK, I know, it’s like saying you vote Republican.. but I LOVE the Ralph Lauren Home collection! It makes me want to be rich. Very very rich as the products come with a hefty price tag, but boy oh boy, would my life be complete!

Taking inspiration from a very white lifestyle, with even a hint to times when slavery was still ‘de rigeur’, Mr Lauren sure knows how to set a mood. Items with names like Plantation Chair, Noble Estate Chaise and La Boheme Desk one immediately knows what he means. One feels like a writer just looking at the black leather club chair aptly named  Writer’s Chair.
