Floating in Nature 

Mima Light House from Mima

Architectural practice Mima has designed a modular house which is truly at one with nature.

A sleek kitchen and living area demands sleek accessories such as the ABCT range of cookware from KN Industrie and the W/W carafe and glasses set from Menu.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick
