The Edit by Murray Crane
Our friend Murray Crane is the founder of menswear brands Crane Brothers and Gubb & Mackie. Murray has shared with us an edit of his favourite pieces from the Everyday Needs offering.
I always visit Margaret Howell’s Wigmore Street store when in London. I love her devotion to English manufacturing and Mid Century Design. This lamp sits on my desk and reminds me of that every time I switch it on.
Tactile, practical and utilitarian. Small things that you use often should bring you pleasure. This ticks all the boxes for me.
On a recent trip to Tokyo I was reminded of how beautiful good rice paper lights can be and how simple Japanese design is still unprecedented.
Martino Gamper chair
This was a gift for my Art Friend and it sits in our hallway. I walk past it every morning and marvel at its weirdness. I’ve never sat on it and probably never will, but its angles, corners and form never fail to amuse and inspire me.
Pieces of design that can be used, unlike the chair. These liven up any dinner party and make avocado on toast that little bit more exciting.
