Slim and Mighty
Cosentino has added five new colours to its Dekton Slim collection. With just 4mm thickness, the ultra compact surface collection is ideal for customising cabinetry, doors, walls, backsplash and furniture to match your kitchen countertop without adding significant extra weight. The five new collections are Helena, Laurent, Rem, Eter and Aeris, which present subtle patterns in various neutral shades.
Samples can be viewed at Cosentino City Singapore at 34/35 Duxton Road. Call 6713- 9543 for a private viewing. Find out more at www.cosentino.com/en-sg.
Playful and energetic, Crate and Barrel’s new Trove collection injects a breath of fresh air with its vibrant colours and sleek shapes. Designed for today’s modern apartments, the pieces in this collection work even in the smallest of spaces.
These include smaller tables for the kitchen nook, office furniture that adds storage, and modular furniture that can fit different room configurations.

Chlorine is used in tap water to combat bacteria and germs, but it can also leave behind chemicals that result in skin irritation, dry skin, and brittle hair from daily showering. Ruhens’ new scented shower head is here to combat that with a filter that doesn’t just remove 99.9 per cent chlorine and harmful particles, but also infuses the water with Vitamin C. Choose from three essential oil filters: lavender, rose and lime. Depending on the frequency of use, each can last from three to six months. Each showerhead offers both high pressure and a fine mist.
Ruhens Scented Shower Head with Vitamin C filter comes in three individually packed scents and retails at $129 per unit (showerhead and one filter). To purchase, visit www.facebook.com/ ruhenssingapore/shop.
Light Up Your Life
Inspired by the picturesque mountains of Japan, the Yama series is a range of sleek, conical pendant lamps whose streamlined shapes lend themselves well to minimalist interiors. The series was unveiled as part of Shanghai-based Stellar Works’ first lighting collection, and created in collaboration with Space Copenhagen. “We try to be attentive and respond to the little ways these typologies evolve overt ime, how uses might morph or change, while also working towards the piece having a certain sculptural quality,” says Space Copenhagen on their lighting design.
Stellar Works is available in Singapore from P5 Studio, price upon request. Visit www.p5studio. com.sg for more information.
