WIEKI SOMERS Designer Somers co-founded her eponymous studio with Dylan van den Berg in 2003 and it has since become known for an eccentric take on everyday objects, an approach spun into the duo’s ‘Joints’ woven rug (page 179 and our newsstand cover). It was inspired by the idea of rugs as ‘isolated places in a domestic landscape, where you can sit, lie or drink tea together’. Collections for Galerie Kreo and an ‘experimental clock’ for watch group The Hour Glass are in the pipeline. RYAN GANDER Artist Gander’s Handmade project, a minimal, Japanese-influenced kitchen sink system (page 086), exemplifies the British artist’s creative dexterity and marks his first venture under the OTOMOTO lifestyle brand, co-run with former Wallpaper* editor-in-chief, Tony Chambers. As the founders succinctly put it, the piece is ‘everything and the kitchen…

soft touch

For Sebastian Alberdi, the sensation of skin touching skin is what best embodies the feeling of love. Which is why he has worked alongside Missana to create these hide-lined blocks; the soft leather is intended to create a sensual feeling in the hand of the holder, while also taking on marks and blemishes over time. Sebastian Alberdi Originally from Buenos Aires, designer Alberdi lives and works in Barcelona. As well as creating his own pieces, he is co-founder of Outofstock, a design collective that collaborates with brands such as Ligne Roset and Blå Station. sebastianalberdi.com Missana Spanish furniture company Missana produces its designs from a workshop in the Valencian town of Alberic.

Available at wallpaperSTORE* store.wallpaper.com Pete Pongsak’s vases explore three ways of expressing love – kissing, touching and lovemaking – with pairs of forms gently interlocking. The idea stems from a painted Peruvian ceramic jar, part of the British Museum’s collection, that shows two figures in an embrace. Each vase is made of American walnut and emerald onyx, chosen with the help of Espasso.

‘My earliest memory of love is my mother tucking me in bed with a blanket so that I felt the warmth, both physically and psychologically,’ says Asylum’s Chris Lee, whose patchwork blanket is made using ties from Turnbull & Asser’s archives. Lee and his team chose the tie as a symbol of work, of ‘bringing home the bread’, in ‘a subtle message for us not to forget the different ways in which love touches us’. The ties were arranged into a patchwork thanks to Turnbull & Asser’s tailoring expertise, creating a piece that conveys a multilayered message of love. Asylum Founded by Chris Lee in 1999, Asylum is a Singapore-based multidisciplinary studio that focuses on unconventional design solutions. Its projects include interiors and branding for hotels, restaurants and offices across Asia. theasylum.com.sg Turnbull…
