Verdable by Beriana
Minimalism and nature are not easy to reconcile, but the Verdable side-table planters designed by Berlin-based Beriana come pretty close.
Shown at the Salone Satellite in Milan for the first time, Verdable is a collection of 3 side tables featuring tube-shaped plant pots with mirror-surface tops placed asymmetrically on top. The mirror surface reflects the plants or flowers, creating the impression that they are floating in space. The tables look effortless cool and lush at the same time and would look equally impressive in the office lobby or next to a sleek sofa at home.

Kintsugi is the ancient Japanese art of seeking beauty from imperfections by mending broken ceramics with gold lacquer. Artist Glen Martin Taylor has taken this one step further by incorporating an array of unusual found objects with broken porcelain pieces, some of which carry strong personal emotional significance.
As part of his graduation project, designer WooJai Lee created a strong yet light material akin to papier-mâché. The collection feels organic and industrial at the same time, no mean feat for a material which started life as a humble newspaper.
