Forking Light

$194.00

Adding a spun aluminum shade to and bulb to this pitchfork prototype we saw at the TENT London show takes it from fully functional in the farmyard to a perfect fit for the foyer.

Shoehorn Hanger

The clothes hanger gains a rather pedestrian second use thanks to the London-based design firm Faudet-Harrison. This hanger, made for shoe maven Tracey Neuls's new store in Shoreditch, has a shoehorn on each end.

Pipework Series Coat Rack

$196.00

The "recontextualization of familiar things" drives Nick Fraser's design. We came across the powder-coated copper pipes and brass fittings of Fraser's handsome hook at the 100% Design show at Earl's Court.

Clamp Lamp

$325.00

Made from an everyday industrial clamp threaded through with a stainless steel rod and aluminum shade, Clamp Lamp, by newcomers Plant and Moss, can be affixed nearly anywhere. It was a highlight of the excellent Tramshed show in the East End.

Spring Stool

Give the wooden seat of the Spring stool from Osher's debut collection a twist as you would the head of a screw, and its height adjusts accordingly.
