Everyday Objects by OKUM Made

Los Angeles, California-based product and furniture designer Daniel Okum of OKUM Made (and his 233 supporters!) can finally leap for joy. Six days ago, Okum's Kickstarter project for The Made Collection, his first, was successfully funded (and topping his intended goal, at that). A beautiful and simple series of everyday objects that "emphasize material and craftsmanship through form," The Made Collection is comprised of four handmade products—Pinocchio Salt & Pepper Shakers, SQ Trivet, Paddle Coathooks, and V Tray & Bowl.

It’s what he refers to as the “alchemy between ­material and process,” which also inspired the textured ­concrete walls and crisply milled walnut furniture.

Dylan Gold's Cornered Table
