The wall-mounted Charlotte mirror was named after its designer, Charlotte Juillard, who added an unexpected detail into the design. The round mirror is bisected by a rectangular panel that’s magnetized. Install it near the front door for a quick face check on the way out the door and as a safe spot to keep your keys so you never lose them. Armand, a compact mirror by Elisabeth Hertzfeld, can be propped up to apply your makeup or laid flat to be used as a key, jewelry, or coin tray. It’s available in apricot pink, blue grey, and natural oak. Designed by HARTÔ, Narcisse is another tabletop mirror that’s made from metal and wood. The circular mirror rotates around for a better view.

Jean-François Bussière

How did you get into design and making? Atelier Bussière has existed since 2010. Until 2016, with a team of 25 employees, we were manufacturing granite, marble and quartz countertops. Since we started manufacturing countertops in 2010, I always wanted to create and manufacture different objects and furniture with the stone slabs leftover that we were not able to reuse to manufacture into countertops. I could not accomplish this dream to

The items in the collection follow a manifesto that stems from the studio’s design style and ideology, stating that each object must be:
1) minimal in style
2) geometric in form
3) honest in material
4) elegant in simplicity
5) sculptural to the core. Check out this slightly meditative video to witness the attention to the tiniest of details: Bloc is an unassuming brass square that opens bottles or can sit elegantly on your desk as a paperweight as it weighs about 15 oz (ideal for popping open a cold bottle at the end of the day). Spoke is a flat pack fruit bowl that resembles a bike wheel as its design was inspired by the spoke-hub mechanism. Poise is a self-balancing cement + brass candlestick holder that is both strong yet

Stove: A Small, Functional Stool That’s Also Comfortable by Gabriel Tan

With people downsizing and smaller homes becoming more of the norm, the same can be said for restaurants and bars also, Tan asked himself, &#8220;What is the smallest functional chair, that could still be comfortable to sit on?&#8221; Seeking an answer, he explored the Shaker movement and came up with a three-legged chair that was inspired by the Shaker stove.
Not only does Stove solve the size problem by being fairly compact, it can also be hung on a peg or a rail (which Tan also designed) until it’s needed again, thereby saving space. While teaching a summer class in 2012, Studio Gorm’s John and Wonhee Arndt shared with Tan their trips to the Hancock Shaker Village in Massachusetts. That led to a visit and

Each shelf has different sized perforations that go from large to small, which in turn, affects how you place your things on it.
The shelves are made from 3mm steel plates that are each laser cut with a different scale grid requiring you to divide your things by size and arrange them in an order. The larger grid can only hold larger objects, as the smaller ones will just fall through.

                                Designed to be multifunctional, Dos is an elegant side table unveiled by Uruguay-based studio <a href="http://www.estudio-diario.com/en/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Diario</a>. They&#8217;ve taken an untraditional approach by adding two circular platforms to a metal structure that resembles a sawhorse. The result is a piece of furniture with endless possibilities – place it by the sofa in the living room, next to a bed, or take it outside to be used on a balcony. It could even be used as a bar or plant holder.
Depending on the user’s preferred aesthetic, the surfaces can be made from different materials. The bottom one resembles a tray and is larger in size, while the top one is smaller and made from wood or marble.

Earlier this year, we became intrigued with Brooklyn-based Aybars Asci after spotting his Liquid Forms concrete tile collaboration with KAZA Concrete at ICFF. So, we reached out and asked him to do a Friday Five for us, and luckily, he agreed. Asci attended Columbia University earning a Master of Science degree in Advanced Architectural Design and has spent the last 20 years as a practicing architect working in both New York and London, on projects that span the globe. The president and founder of Efficiency Lab for Architecture is also an inventor (he holds a U.S. patent!), educator (he teaches seminars and studios in various topics at The City College of New York, Cornell University, Pratt Institute, and Northeastern University), and environmentalist (he’s a certified Passive House Designer and a certified LEED AP BD+C professional). Therefore it’s no surprise that his work has won awards and continues to be

                                Created by Brazilian studio <a href="https://www.vntrlab.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ventura Lab</a>, <a href="https://www.vntrlab.com/veleiro"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Veleiro</a> is a minimalist candle holder designed for easy movement and candle attachment. Each candle holder is made with a wood scraps from the furniture industry and carbon steel, with a silhouette that resembles a sailboat.
Veleiro gets its name from the Portuguese word ‘vela’ which translates to both ‘candle’ and ‘sail’, perfectly suiting the design. The wooden base can hold matches or any small stuff, while the metal lid features a triangular flap with prongs that hold the candle in place. That same part is what’s used to carry the candle holder around if you need to move it.
