Smart and the Beautiful

Sail Value
This miniature Black Pearl Ship made of drift wood may not take you on exciting voyages but will surely look stunning on a desk or a console. Pirates of the Carribean fans, rejoice!

Bookworm’s Buddy
The Kindle Paperwhite 3G’s 6-inch display is only slightly smaller than the page of an average book. Compact and lightweight, Amazon’s latest e-reader comes with an e-ink feature that lets users swipe between pages, search for words and refer to a dictionary.


Invisible Case

The Conceal Bookshelf hides beneath a stack of books which appear afloat on the wall, almost turning bookkeeping into an art. Made of powder-coated steel, the shelf can hold up to 9 kg of books.


Idle Corner
The Louise Armchair, made of wenge-stained ash wood and upholstered in Pelle Frau leather, is an elegant addition to the living room, study or office. Comes in shades of grey, black, peach and white.


Fluid Design
Carved out of a single flat piece of wood, the Rising Table is stylish, unconventional, and blends the tabletop with the latticework of bamboo beams.
