Born from a proud Scandinavian tradition of wood making, Copenhagen-based brand Oliver Furniture introduces two gorgeous ranges of kids furniture with a simple aesthetic and quality craftsmanship. The Seaside collection is inspired by easy beach-house living whilst the Wood collection highlights the natural beauty in timbers. The brand was founded in 2003 by Danish cabinetmaker and designer Soren Rorbaek and started with a collection of romantic adult furniture. A year later Oliver Furniture introduced their charming kids collection.
Fritz Hansen’s approach to colours is associated with their choice of genuine materials that patinate over time in a constant state of gradual transformation. Fritz Hansen appreciates this slow metamorphosis, which is also reflected in their iconic Series 7™ Chair’s nine new colours by the Danish artist Tal R. He has created nine artistic shades, all blends and all variable colours that change with the light, the space, the seasons and other aspects of the environment. Because a colour is not just a colour but a complex and inconstant factor. That is why Fritz Hansen prefers artistic colours to industrial colours, diversity to uniformity and the natural to the artificial. The result is a piece of furniture that will continue to live, surprise and inspire.

Mim Design based in Melbourne Australia is an interior design firm with a team of talented young designers and stylists creating outstanding new residential and commercial projects including this fabulous apartment by Megan Rawson.
Crisp Street offers premium residential living in the heart of Melbourne’s Bayside. Inspired by its coastal proximity this apartment reflects a composition of contemporary living zones that builds on a softened monochrome palette. This balance is punctuated with furnishings in blue-greys and dusky pinks with accents of coral and copper. Set back a block from the beach, the client brief inevitably called for a design that captured the coastal positioning while portraying an understated and modern elegance relevant to city living. The driving inspiration was to create an interior that was a comfortable home within a busy apartment dwelling. Therefore, efficient space planning and clever design devises were key to maximising this clean lined, coastal interior.
With the consideration of spatial layout, also came the attention to material selection and furniture. This needed to look aesthetically beautiful, remain within budget but also overcome the needs of small space living. Quality fixtures and finishes throughout the apartments ensured a refined edge. The washed timber flooring created an overall polished, simple and timeless feel throughout, whilst the custom created, white powder-coated, ‘bam-bam’ handles and custom ‘slot’ basins ensured the apartment had personality. Close consideration was given to how each element worked towards the resident’s overall use and enjoyment of the space. Both the palette and furniture items were selected to ensure the interior flowed in proportion and with design sense.
Crisp Street pushed the Mim team to work within the proportions of a multi-residential dwelling, all the while ensuring the interior décor formed a unique personality and maintained an individualistic appeal. Using a layered approach, the curated selection of Australian artworks created a bold and colourful break amongst the otherwise soft and subdued colour scheme. Locally sourced finishes ensured a sustainable outcome, whilst a simple aesthetic philosophy, meant the palette and materials felt clean and relaxed throughout. Mim worked alongside developers BPM to ensure the interior made good use of the client’s wishes to weave the seaside charm into this elegantly furnished home. It was important the interior resulted in an inspiring space that hosts a genuine balance between Bayside and practical city living.

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.
