Gidon shared with us an Edit of his favourite design objects from the Everyday Needs offering. 

 

01 Japanese wooden cup with handle // $79

"The definition of good design – when nothing can be added without detracting."

 

02 Wooden muesli bowl // $29

"An exceptionally well proportioned vessel that becomes even more beautiful as a patina develops over time and with use."

 

03 Hinoki bathroom tray // $49

"A modest but perfectly formed piece of practical, traditional Japanese joinery."

 

04 Handmade copper grater // $85

"Beautiful, practical and perfect for sugarcane and ginger infused vodka."
