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.

 

Margaret Howell Type 75 Anglepoise lamp // $420

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.

 

Gidon Bing ceramic citrus juicer // $54

Tactile, practical and utilitarian. Small things that you use often should bring you pleasure. This ticks all the boxes for me.

 

Hotaru lights by Barber & Osgerby // $890 - $2,150

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.

 

Salt & pepper spitz and wooden boards by Martino Gamper // $105 - $220

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.
