Fjord Explorer

Like a deep cut in the landscape, the Fjord chair collection from Moroso adds a bit of drama to the home or office (there is even a variation for waiting rooms). We especially like the swiveling leather armchair and the tulip like bar chairs.

Globalight Champagne Holder

It’s pink, it’s shiny — Karim Rashid has turned a sketch into a living product for Veuve Clicquot. The handle detail is impressive, well balanced, we would be happy to carry this around the pool; the holder doubles as a cooler.

Veuve Clicquot Champagne Cooler

This upright cooler stores 12 magnums of your favorite bubbly, in a cellar, suitably dark, in your bolt-hole in Portofino. Limited edition of 15. The champagne’s not bad either.

Ghost Chair

Viewed from a certain angle, Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn’s Ghost Chair seems extremely delicate, wispy, like a puff of smoke. Design Drift presented their Ghost Chair Collection during the Milan Furniture Fair at the new N-how Hotel.
