Hansgrohe’s latest range of kitchen accessories is aimed at combining design and function, to offer homeowners a more intuitive way of working in the kitchen space. To achieve this, the brand has designed a water control unit that is placed at the front right-hand side of the sink rim, and is separated from the tap. This new Hansgrohe Metris Select two-hole kitchen mixer has an ergonomically shaped lever handle that can be switched to your desired temperature and water volume, and kept that way throughout. Water flow from the mixer can then be turned on or off by simply pressing the Select button on the spout. There’s even a pull-out spray incorporated into the mixer so you can easily reach corners of the basin.
Not one for complicated flourishes and garish embellishments? The understated design of Haymann Editions’ Dartagnan chair, by French designer Toni Grilo, will charm you with its simple and fluid form. Upholstered in buttery smooth saddle leather, this seat is bolstered with a solid frame structure that comes in oak and walnut options. The Dartagan series comprises an armchair, bar stool, chair and stool.

Keep your home sparkling clean and free of bacteria, and don’t worry about having to clean your air purifiers again! Airfree’s range of air purifiers can destroy up to 99 per cent airborne mould, viruses, mites and dust allergens. Contaminated air is drawn into the ceramic core and destroyed at high temperatures; no radiation, chemical or toxins are released during this process. What’s more, the air purification cycle is silent and requires no maintenance, too, as the system is filter-less.
AIRFREE’S RANGE OF AIR PURIFIERS STARTS FROM $398 TO $858, AND IS AVAILABLE AT POPULAR, HARVEY NORMAN, HACHI TECH ONLINE, AUDIO HOUSE, HWEE SENG ONLINE AND QOO10.
