After pulling out many hats for several architecture and design firms around the world, the sisters Kershbaumer branched out and set up studio in 2008. Since then, the London-based pair has been churning out beautiful, well-made minimalist designs that make you reimagine how each piece would interact and define the surrounding space around it. "A beautiful product to us is a product that also has to be useful and well made. It has to be a simple and elegant solution." We couldn't agree more. Here, five of our favorite creations from Atelier Areti.
Atelier Areti's sculptural grid-like Squares floor/wall lamp is designed to lean against the wall, but can also be attached to the wall or suspended from the ceiling.
Handmade in Germany, the powder coated metal Cone wall and ceiling lamp consists of two black cones that are connected via a joint, allowing the larger version to be move freely.
Might be most suitable for the kids' room, but it's a sure bet that the Brub Brum table cart will unleash the inner kid in all of us. Not only is is completely capable of accepting the weight of a TV set atop its smooth table, but it also features spacious shelves to hold all types of media, such as books, magazine, and DVDs.
These zig zag Nuss walnut candleholders were handmade in Sweden and come in a set of 3. Easily emits its beauty without candles as well.
A refreshing alternative to the ever-popular Eames chair, the Vienna is a 3-legged stool composed of a sculptural (yet comfortable!) metal seat shell and walnut wood legs. Available in various colors.
