The urge to accumulate stuff is a natural instinct elevated into an art form by collectors who track down, acquire and catalogue their objects of desire with tireless zeal. This is the inspiration behind the Labirinti collection of furniture, designed by Giorgia Zanellato and Daniele Bortotto as a tribute to their dedication.
The Labirinti collection comprises a cabinet, shelf, console, coffee table and a seat made by De Castelli as well as a rug by CC Tapis. The furniture pieces feature a profusion of shelves in different shapes and sizes, all made of ultra-thin sheets of metal in alluring finishes of graphite, silver, dark bronze and purple. The myriad of compartments, some more practical than others, creates an irresistible invitation to squirrel away precious items. Together with the matching rug, these multi-functional storage units are a three-dimensional portrayal of a collector's compulsive obsessiveness which, unlike most collectors' display cabinets, look just as good empty as when are full.
Go for simple, practical accessories such as the Blockwork desk organiser from Lyon Beton and the Axonometry tray set from Ghidini 1961. Alternatively, why not create an illusion of endless shelves with the Greek Pottery wallpaper from Mind The Gap?

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?

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.
