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.
A friend who recently got married registered for Taika dinnerware, and I was immediately smitten with Klaus Haapaniemi's whimsical illustrations for this Iitalia line. Taika (which means "magic" in Finnish) comes in black, white, or this deep blue, and looks great surrounded by others in the line (there are mugs, bowls, small plates, and big plates) or as a bold singleton amid a sea of white ceramicware.
The busted plastic laundry basket has been given a sleek new identity as a powder-coated steel bin. If your dirty clothes more often find themselves on the floor, keep your favortie mugs or daily paper in these black, sky blue, or white containers.
