There’s a hole in my chair
This vibrant chair from Studio Creo is lightweight yet robust, thanks to the air-moulding process by which it is made. Designed for water drainage (the seat’s got a hole in it), it is made from polypropylene.

STYLE
Wine that travels well
Italy’s Moreschi, famous for creating glove-soft Italian leather shoes, has now applied its hand-sewn techniques to get your wine around town in style. The limited-edition Vinous Wine Tote coddles two bottles in a carrier that is buttery French calfskin leather on the outside and goatskin suede inside. If you can stop caressing the tote long enough, you might even get around to drinking what’s inside.
