The elegant and minimalist furniture by Belgian designer Casimir is not only beautiful: by stripping his designs to their core, the designer often reveals thought-provoking questions and also a hint of subversion.
The Nakeddressoir, for instance, reduces the familiar sideboard to its essence by removing the top and front panels, showcasing the utilitarian beauty of the normally concealed shelves and drawers.
The Vitrine and Ladderrack2 are exercises in restraint, the former abstracting a display cabinet into a set of floating shelves suspended within a sleek wooden frame, the latter a monumental shelf created by combining simple ladders and racks.
Trunk is a daringly simple bench made of planks of solid wood joined together to create a stylised version of a hollowed-out tree trunk, whilst Max is a chair-with-a-drawer which questions what makes it a chair as opposed to a dressing table.
The subversive theme continues with Pallet, the ubiquitous packaging essential crafted beautifully in luxurious solid oak; Trestle1+Crate3, a cabinet comprising a crate on top of a trestle, again in solid oak; and Longtable3, an expansive tabletop balanced delicately on three seemingly randomly placed legs inspired by roof beams.
This is a beautiful collection which combines craftsmanship and intellectual rigour in equal measures, perfect for creating a thought-provoking interior.
The natural wood veneers of the Link suspension light and Air table light from LZF are perfect for creating a warm, welcoming glow. The Scraplight Disc suspension light from Graypants creates a similar effect with recycled cardboard.

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?

American artist-designer John Eric Byers cites, amongst others, Donald Judd and Richard Serra as sources of his inspiration. The influence of these American masters of minimalism are clear to see from the furniture he has created.

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.
