"Less is More" - I think everyone is familiar with this saying. This is also the philosophy behind Saniyo. Their aim is to design simple, socially responsible and functional pieces for everyone to enjoy.
Their first collection "Gathering" is a partyware set that includes cups, plates and even a nested condiment set. Taking inspiration from the solar system, they wish to remind users that as humans we are part of something bigger, the universe. Remember that in this big world with so many things and people and animals, we should cherish the ones nearest and dearest to us - family and friends.
We thinks that a great reason to have a party, don't you? Celebrate life, everyday!

"Immediate acceptance of the presented objects is not the purpose of our work." Studio Roex presents to us pieces that make our minds work. Using familiar materials and objects and presenting them in a new and unconventional way. " We want to increase people's awareness of what they see, heightening their ability (and desire) to understand it."
A furniture and product design studio based in Amsterdam, Studio Roex's projects will definitely make you rethink the way you view the objects you see and use on a daily basis. Can this spoon I use to eat my cereal be just a food delivery system or can it be something else too? Hmm..

Founded in 2012, Colonel started off as a studio by Isabelle Gilles and Yann Poncelet. Curating a mixture of their own products and a selection of equally beautiful products from other renowned brands, their website offers many home products which have a running theme of light wood, patterns and fresh colours.
They also have a beautiful store in Paris that is on our list of places to visit as fellow fans of the colour palette and use of patterns. Colonel pieces are sure to bring a bright and cheerful vibe to any room ( we suggest every room).

Though Anna Badur calls herself a designer, we see her more as an artist. In her piece Drawn by Nature, the natural movement of the wind is captured on the cloth as the blue pigments are blown across it. From far it reminds us of the richness of shibori dyeing but on closer inspection, it is a whole different kind of beauty.
We can truly say that she is a mixed media artist when looking at her portfolio of work, which includes furniture such as the concrete stool that gives the illusion of a soft texture, wallpapers and even working with ceramics. Some of her work is available in her store too.

As much as we are big fans of bold and bright prints and patterns, we cannot help but to swoon over these simple playful printed home accessories in the freshest colour scheme...A Portland, Oregon based design studio with a passion for textiles, Nell & Mary offers a range of environmentally and socially conscious goods (totes, pouches, pillows, tea towels...) all sewn and screen printed by hand.
It's strange, in a good way of course, that we are appreciating much more of the details of each print design like never before through their choice of using subtle pops of colour in each of their products. We are definitely smitten with what we are seeing so far over here...
And, we are so glad that they recently opened their own retail store, North of West... A design-driven mercantile carrying over 40 brands with products that they carefully selected and are incredibly passionate about, we think this shop is not to be missed if any of you are heading to Portland, Oregon!
