’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection again brings out the animal(s) within us. And a great deal of art and form assert without loss of function.


presents ‘Mame’ a minimalistic press-filter coffee maker. Coffee bean icon personalizes the piece.


The super star in Spring/Summer 2013 may very well be the kitschy ‘Duck Timer’ designed by Eero Aarnio. When it’s time to turn off the heat the duck quacks.


There’s quite a bit of kitchen objects including cookware, cutlery, china, oil-vinegar cruets and the duck timer among other items.

Last year’s Fall Winter 2012 collection introduced ‘Dressed” by Marcel Wonders, an effort to reposition perceived low-end aluminum cookware: Mission accomplished. In 2013 the designer introduces 18/10 stainless steel with magnetic bases to the family of cookware. Applying an exclusive deep-cut pattern to the handles and covers provides what’s needed to transition from kitchen to table.


Yet another animal is ‘Kastor’ a shiny beaver which gnaws pencils. The sharpener also functions as a paperweight.
