Jewellery designer Lucy Folk opened her first boutique in Crossley Street, Melbourne in 2012. The unique concept store was designed by Melbourne architectural firm Inglis Architects. Folk has gained acclaim for her irreverent range of fine jewellery, which melds the incongruous partners of food and fashion to charming affect. Folk’s work renders everyday food items in delicate precious metals for witty, kitsch accessories that have gained the designer a cult following. Past collections have included pendants modelled on pretzels, pasta and tortilla chips, and have struck a chord internationally, with Folk’s range being picked up by stockists including Collette in Paris, Harvey Nichols in London and Oak in New York.

Minimal and poetic like a pencil line drawn in the air, String Lights is an original suspension lamp, both conceptually simple and bold at the same time. Anastassiades has always sought the primordial and original essence of forms and materials. His designs move towards abstraction, in a search for purity that pursues an exercise of stripping away, taking objects and materials back their original dimension of bareness. “My work springs from an idea of subtraction. Because a naked object brought back to its bare essentiality is the ultimate, definitive expression of beauty.” His is a deceptive simplicity, giving rise to objects imbued with unexpected vitality, and displaying the highest quality craftsmanship. Suspension lamp. Available in two models: spherical and conical. Soft Touch technology for the adjustable switching. Images courtesy AMM Blog with thanks xx.

The discrete and elegant lounge chair PK22™ epitomises the work of Poul Kjærholm and his search for the ideal type-form and industrial dimension, which was always present in his work. The profile of the steel frame structure originates from his graduation project, the “Element” Chair (PK25™), from the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen. On the PK22™, the structure was divided into separate elements due to design improvements and for economical production.
The PK22™ was an immediate commercial and critical success. In 1957, the chair was awarded the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale, the world’s premier design fair. The prize catapulted Kjærholm’s career and immediately he became a name on the international scene and has enjoyed this position ever since.
The PK22™ is available in wicker, suede or leather with a base in satin-brushed stainless steel.

One of my favourite photographers, Copenhagen based Line Thit Klein, is a self-confessed “adoring foodie and lover of all things delicate, that being both feasts and faces”. This is especially evident in the way she composes every single frame of her impeccable imagery. An acclaimed editorial photographer, Line specialises in food, lifestyle, interiors and portraits with her work adorning the pages of a long list of bestselling books and popular magazines. In this editorial for Cereal Magazine Vol.6 Line captures the texture, shape and colour of a group of succulents simply & beautifully.
Danish lighting manufacturer Lightyears have had their first relaunch of a classic icon. The Orient Lamp by Jo Hammerborg was originally produced in copper, brass and chrome however Lightyears have decided to only relaunch the copper version but in two sizes. The iconic pendant lamp with its organic shape and the detail of a top piece made from rosewood between the spun metal shade and the cable, was created by Jo Hammerborg in 1963 for one of the most important Danish lighting companies of the time, Fog & Morup.
