H&D Hotlist #162: New design products, furniture and accessories
Can Touch This
A statement pendant light is like jewellery that jazzes up your space. This mobile lighting sculpture, named llll.02.6 by Belgian brand llll (pronounced “four L”), turns an empty room into an art gallery with its gentle glow.
Each piece is designed handmade by brand founder and lighting designer Sarah Dehandschutter from her signature polyester tricot that feels soft to the touch – yes, you can touch these.
Design Collection Denmark has partnered with award-winning furniture brand Bolia to open the first Bolia store in Singapore in Q3 this year, with a second store planned in Q2 2023.
The stores mark the brand’s expansion into the Asia Pacific market to strengthen the New Scandinavian Design rep in the region.

“My intention was to design a wooden chair so comfortable that it wouldn’t need upholstery,” says celebrated British designer Jasper Morrison of the solid wood Fufu chair he designed in 2020 for Maruni.
He expanded the collection to include a dining table last year. One of the highlights of this year’s Maruni presentation in Milan, it features an oval top and smooth rounded edges that feel good to the touch.
The Maruni Fugu dining table retails for $6,850 from Atomi, www.atomi.shop.
Quench That Thirst
Is it hot in here? Nespresso’s new summer campaign embraces the heat with a gorgeous limited edition tropical leaf print on its coffee mugs, a motif that pays tribute to Brazil’s vibrancy.
These come with positive mantras – “Brew, Breathe, Bloom” and “Inhale, Exhale, Enjoy” – to remind us to stay mindful. Alongside these cups are two new flavoured coffees, Barista Creations Liminha over Ice and Coconut over Ice, which are infused with lime, mint and other tropical flavours of summer.
Homegrown fragrance brand Scent by SIX has co-created a trio of new scents with Caregivers Alliance Limited (CAL), a local NGO dedicated to supporting the needs of caregivers of persons with mental health issues.
Comprising Care to Focus, Care to Relax and Care to Sleep Better, the three scents are crafted to influence positive emotions in the wearer in the hopes of helping to focus, relax, and sleep better.
The Care range retails from $22 (for a 10ml Aroma Essence) at Scent by SIX stores at Jem, Bugis Junction, 313@Somerset and VivoCity and online at www.scentbysix.com.
