Early Birds Get the Worms 

No Early Birds by Per Soderberg

Early birds get the worms, they say.  Thankfully there are no signs of worms anywhere near the enigmatically titled No Early Birds collection of furniture by Swedish designer Per Soderberg.

What we have instead is a restrained and considered series of tables, benches and cabinets featuring metal legs in a criss-crossing pattern with tops in various materials, from wood to marble and brass.  The bolts which attach the legs to the table top are not only visible but are emphasised in contrasting steel or brass finishes, thus imparting a distinctly industrial flavour.  The effect is especially impressive where the table top is in marble or plated in metal (brass, copper or zinc).  Perfect for injecting a dose of refined elegance into an industrial design scheme.

Strong, sculptural designs work wonderfully well in industrial style design schemes.  Try the Element dining table from Desalto, the Star console table from Coedition and the Seatshells chair from Frederik Roije.

For lighting with an industrial touch check out the Chambers chandelier from Menu, the Scraplight Tilt table light from Graypants and the Multilamp floor lamp from Seletti.

Choose accessories in contrasting materials to add interest.  The glass Sunset vase from Incipit, the brass There (Push Pin) candle holder from Ghidhin 1961 and the concrete Nuclear plant holder from Lyon Beton would all look great.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

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?
