1 Combined on the walls as here, Ichiro Iwasaki’s ‘Pin’ for Vibia (from £228 approx) is as much light installation as led fitting. It’s available in black or white and floor or table versions. Ring 00 34 934 796 971, or visit vibia.com. 2 ‘These glasses wear their “imperfections” like an 18th-century woman wore a beauty mark,’ says Murray Moss of his four ‘Crack’ patterns, which can be etched on any Lobmeyr item. While the ironic designs don’t hide the pox, at £107 approx per etching, vessels adorned with them are of a different class. Like the ladies who donned cosmetic spots. Ring 00 43 1 512 0508, or visit lobmeyr.at. 3 Hunt & Hope’s aim to revitalise needlepoint manifests itself as 12 contemporary patterns, including these particularly fun ‘Camo’ (left) and…

RAYMOND PETTIBON: A PEN OF ALL WORK (by Massimiliano Gioni and Gary Carrion-Murayari; Phaidon, rrp £59.95) The childhood drawings of Raymond Pettibon from the early 1960s, which preface this book, suggest that he was a normal seven-year-old, obsessed with surfing, rockets and cowboys ’n’ injuns. Yet next to these crayon scrawls are strange captions, almost voiceovers, narrating the images with remembrances and warnings from the future: ‘As a boy I passed my life in day-dreams of military glory. There will be a war for you, my father said, when you grow up.

Clockwatching isn’t something we’d normally advocate, but when it involves a journey through cinematic history, it’s a different matter. Enter Christian Marclay’s THE CLOCK – a 24-hour montage of television and film clips specifying the time of day, correct whenever you watch. UNTIL 27 JANUARY, the 2010 work is on show for free at Tate Modern and, once a month, the installation will be open all night, making for particularly powerful viewing. Translating fiction into reality, the snippets include dream sequences and rush hours, dinners and theatre shows, sex scenes and deaths – climaxing with Orson Welles’s character in The Stranger being skewered on a clock mechanism at midnight. The piece is less a day in the life than a life in a day – a complex, captivating and profound…

beauty built-in

This autumn, one of Italy’s super-brands unveiled its plush flagship store in London’s West End, a stone’s throw from Piccadilly Circus. In the beautifully restored setting of the former St James’s Market, behind the largest single-pane picture windows in the capital, Smeg is showcasing some 300 products, from wine coolers to coffee machines, cooker hoods to combi-microwaves. Core to the display, spread over three deluxe floors and some 600sq m, are its built-in ovens and fridge-freezers, which have something for everyone, from entry-level options to appliances with topof- the-range specifications. Take the new ovens in its ‘Linea’ and ‘Classic’ collections, for example. With their innovative touch-screen displays – the compact 60cm ‘Linea’ offers an impressive 12 cooking functions and 20 automatic programmes – the sleek A+-rated stainless- steel models feature pyrolitic…
