The box contains six beautifully crafted objects, each of which was designed exclusively and produced in a limited edition.
The idea for the box was conceived out of a desire to celebrate the moment of moving into a new home that would go beyond a bottle of champagne or a bouquet of flowers. The Modern House, known for their roster of inspiring modern living spaces, wanted an array of objects that would be more meaningful and longer-lasting. Faye Toogood explains, “The Modern House appeals to a particular type of homebuyer, but within that audience there are people who actually have quite different tastes. We wanted these objects to enrich any home, so we kept all the pieces very pure and elemental. The materials we’ve used aren’t up for discussion or judgement because

Philipp Schenk-Mischke Creates Organically-Formed Objects Using Unconventional Techniques

                                For his final project at the Royal College of Art in London, graduate student <a href="http://schenkmischke.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Philipp Schenk-Mischke</a> designed a set of ceramic vases and a small collection of furniture pieces that blur the lines between everyday objects and conceptual furniture. Collectively, the project is called &#8220;Process Plug-Ins.&#8221;
With BTM Ceramics, Schenk-Mischke wanted to experiment in reinterpreting classic object types by analyzing the way they’re made or used. While most ceramics are left alone to dry once they have taken form, Schenk-Mischke distorts his ceramics but placing them on a body vibration plate (the same kind used in the fitness industry) that gently shakes and vibrates the formed pieces into more organic shapes. By introducing this plug-in (defined as a component that’s designed to enhance a process or system by adding an extra feature or function), Schenk-Mischke changes pre-conceived notions about how a certain process is “supposed” to be. Primitive Fixings

Architecturally-Inspired Planters by Anchor Ceramics

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/architecturally-inspired-planters-anchor-ceramics/anchor-ceramics-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/09/anchor-ceramics-1-810x508.jpg" alt="Architecturally-Inspired Planters by Anchor Ceramics" /></a>
                                Founded by Bruce Rowe, Melbourne-based studio <a href="https://www.anchorceramics.com/#anchor-ceramics" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Anchor Ceramics</a> created a range of planters that strike a balance between the organic forms found in wheel-thrown pottery and the clean lines found in architecture.
The planters come in two different styles: the Undercut, which has a small step carved at the base, and the Funnel, inspired by traditional water pipes that have a wider mouth than the base. The range is available in various colors inspired by the Australian landscape, including speckled white, speckled grey, sage grey, charcoal, olive green, and traditional terracotta. Anchor Ceramics is available online and at the showroom of Robert Plumb.
