timeless design

(PICTURE: EMMA WEBSTER)Returning from the 56th annual Milan furniture fair, the biggest gathering of manufacturers and designers in Europe that showcases an absolute wealth of innovation and new design, it struck me that three very specific moments stood out. 1. Mark Eley of fashion brand Eley Kishimoto taking snaps with a customised Polaroid camera. 2. The extraordinary array of marble seemingly used everywhere (but, hot news, pink onyx is the new uber-luxe material du jour). And 3. A short film about the Austrian artist Peter Handke and his poem, To Duration, shown at the showroom of Italian superbrand B&B Italia.It seemed hugely ironic to me, that here, in the midst of this festival of the new, my memorable trio are related for being comments on timelessness. Handke’s poem, written 31…

love at first sit

All hail the new sofa size. Is it a chair or is it a couch? Who cares when it’s this perfect for curling up with a toddler, a dog, or just a good book and a mug of tea?

bold new world

(WORDS: ELIZA HONEY PICTURE: DAVID LOTHIAN)Ikea’s latest collection, ‘Avsiktlig’, is the result of a collaboration with Swedish collective 10-gruppen, known for shaking up the design world since the 1970s. Iconic designs and new prints inspired by 10-gruppen’s spirit will feature on fabric, stationery, bedding and more. Some of the patterns, such as Carl Johan de Geer’s ‘Djungel’, haven’t been in print for over 40 years – but this is more than an exercise in nostalgia. It’s a celebration of fearless creativity. Tote bags, £4 each; fabric, from £10 for three metres (ikea.com). ■…

The hints of metal add industrial toughness to the brand’s pared-back creations. From £1,150 for a single metal cupboard (plainenglishdesign.com). ■…
