Shades of Colour
Designed by Jordi Canudas for lighting brand Marset, the Dipping Light is a simple ambient lamp that belies its ingenious composition. Its glass globe features concentric circles of paint that lighten towards its brushed brass base, producing a pretty ombre effect. The use of paint to vary the light opacity does away with the need of a shade, so that the purity of its bare-bones geometric design can be better appreciated.

German bathroom fittings brand Duravit wants to enliven the bathroom with its latest collection, the Brioso. Designed by Christian Werner, the range of bathroom furniture has an understated aesthetic with its seamless shapes and muted finishes. We especially like the look of the matching cabinets and mirror, the latter with a 60mm-wide, 300 lux-strong LED edging light at the top – perfect for spotting blemishes and fixing makeup.
This is what you call smart, space-efficient design. This sleek mini infinity pool features a padded sunbed so that you can sunbathe in the same place where you soak. Designed by well-known Italian designers Ludovica+Roberto Palomba, the Quadrat Pool Relax is fitted with a sound system to play your fancied poolside playlist, and the tub comes in free-standing or built-in versions.

Trophies of Love
Handmade in collaboration with Singaporean-owned, Bali-based crafts store Cushcush Gallery, graphic designer Roy Poh created these wooden trophies to reward his daughters for their achievements, no matter how small. Each of the six designs in this first series has a unique character – for instance, T01 has a mischievous look, due to the wood grain producing a hint of a smile on its face, and was inspired by the character of Roy’s second daughter. They make great gifts, and are fun collectibles too.

LG has updated its best-selling Oled TV for 2018 with the release of the Signature W8 TV. While the exterior looks pretty similar to its W7 predecessor, the software has received a major revamp. The W8 has faster CPU and GPU speeds to produce sharper images. It also features ThinQ artificial intelligence that processes and responds to voice commands, and is Google Assistant-enabled. Like its forebear, the W8 is unbelievably thin – its 65-inch model is only 3.85mm – so that it can be mounted on the wall with magnets.
The LG W8 Oled TV retails from $11,699 for its 65- inch model at all LG authorised retailers.
