H&D Hotlist #89: New design products, furniture and accessories
Luxury lighting brand Lasvit continues to push the boundaries of Bohemian artisanal glass-making with its 2020 collection. Inspired by the beauty of nature, the collection comprises five series designed in collaboration with international creatives. Czech designer Luka Novak’s Spacey was created using a centuries- old glass-making technique called lithyalin, which yields a marbled pattern akin to precious stones.
The Spacey family comprises two variations – Eclipse and Supermoon, each features three perfect spheres and a unique marbling finish to turn your home into a scene of planetary wonders.
Spacey is available to order from W. Atelier for $4,060 (Supermoon) and $4,400 (Eclipse). Visit www.watelier. com for more information.
With its thin glass top and sculptural base, the Skorpio table from Cattelan Italia is both a functional piece of furniture and an artwork. This year, the brand has updated the Skorpio family with new top finishes called Keramik with exquisite marbled patterns on glass surfaces.
Love Carrara marble? Go for Breccia, featuring a white base with dark veins.
Available from www.xzqt.com.sg. Price upon request.
This prolonged period of working from home and travel restrictions may have made you reconsider your wardrobe. Some days, a pair of slacks may be optional, because nobody will see what you wear beyond what’s visible on the screen, anyway.
Japanese design studio Whatever Inc, in collaboration with fashion brand Lokitho, have designed WFH Jammies, a shirt that is a respectable button-down shirt from the chest up, and comfy jersey jammies everywhere else, “making it a stress-free solution for wake-up presentations and client meetings before bed,” says the brand.
Available in several neutral colourways, WFH Jammies was initially a Kickstarter project that will soon be available to order from www.whatever.co, price starts from ¥9,000 ($117.23, worldwide shipping included).
A brainchild of designer David Tham of StudioNorm and local furniture brand Starchie, The Naughton Table is a sleek coffee table that can be expanded to twice its size to suit compact spaces.
The squircle table recently won an award in the home furniture category from Taiwan’s prestigious Golden Pin Design Award and one more internationally recognised design from Singapore.
The Naughton Table retails at $599 at www.starchie.net.
