U Bench by Luur
Luur is a multi-disciplinary design studio from the US with a sleek, streamlined aesthetic which feels utterly fresh and contemporary. Luur's designs include jewellery, lighting, furniture and landscapes, but our favourite Luur product is the U Bench.
The U Bench is made of two steel sections, each made from a single sheet of steel that has been rolled into a circular shape with a flat base. The two sections are then joined together, one with the flat base facing up and the other facing down. The end result is a sculptural occasional table or bench which reveals a perfect circle when viewed from the side. Clever, elegant and very beautiful.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
Founded by furniture designers Josefine Krabbe Munck, Kamma Rosa Schytte, Kasper Kyster and Lærke Ryom, Ukurant showcases experimental products from emerging designers which straddle the border between art and commerce.
