  • Bocci: 5 reasons why we're smitten

    Since founding Bocci in 2005, Omer Arbel has created a stunning portfolio of contemporary lighting that delivers far more than just simply illumination.  Bocci's organic forms bring an inherently inquisitive mood to each space it inhabits; an emotive value that no mass produced light could ever match.  Individually the pendants are subtle yet divine, but when multiplied and clustered their impact is truly mesmerizing.

    5 ways Bocci has us hooked:

    1. They are Canadian, born and raised.
    2. Sustainability is a integral part of their design practice.
    3. They keep manufacturing in-house as much as possible.
    4. The inspiration for each design comes from the deep exploration of the raw materials, with no end purpose in mind when they begin.
    5. There are a multitude of applications depending on personal or commercial aesthetic, offering a unmatched versatility compared with other light installations.

  • Top Rank: the Peugeot Pepper Mill's effortless grind

     

    The humble peppercorn wasn't always so...

     

    Black Pepper is so commonplace we often take it for granted, but that has only been the case in recent history. The peppercorn, which has been used by humans for thousands of years, was once traded like currency, earning it the nickname 'black gold'.  These days - even while yielding a modest price and being readily available - the prominence of pepper in every kitchen, cracked  over your poached eggs, or subtlety sprinkled in a Bouillabaisse, doesn't make it any less deserving of your attention.  How you grind your peppercorns will ensure you are maximizing its flavor, potency, and longevity; a freshly cracked corn atop the most modest of dishes adds an air of sophistication.

     

    Chances are that if someone were to ask you to picture a pepper mill, in your mind's eye, you would - unwittingly - be picturing a classic Peugeot Pepper Mill, with its' bulbous noggin, curvaceous sides, and solid wood.  Everything about the design of these mills are synonymous with grinding the world's most important spice

    The Peugeot Mill is to the Chef, as the Eames Lounge Chair is to the furniture designer, as the iphone is to the software engineer, as the .... can you see where we're going with this?

    5 things you probably didn't know about the iconic Peugeot Mills:

    1. Although there is no substantiated proof, Peugeot is widely considered to be the inventor of the pepper mill.  Before 1842 pepper had been ground mainly by versions of the mortar and pestle design for thousands of years.  Talk about innovation!
    2. Peugeot has been making their quintessential pepper mill longer than they have their cars.  The family business that preceded the current Peugeot company was founded in 1810 under Napoleon's Empire, and manufactured coffee mills and bicycles. In 1842 they expanded their production to include Pepper and Salt Mills.
    3. Peugeot is pronounced 'PER-zhoh'.   Please pass the pepper Peugeot!
    4. The durability and longevity of the Peugeot is second to none.  Made from the highest-quality steel, the precision parts are guaranteed for life -- you'll never need another!  Easy to hold, twist, and load.
    5. The 'U-Select' model that was launched in 2004, giving users the ability to accurately adjust the grind of the pepper -- from very course to very fine.This mill has been repeatedly ranked as one of the top pepper mills year after year.

  • Light it up! Louis Poulsen Sale on until June 17th. Save 15% now.

    Whether it is your home, office, a public space, or garden; modern, traditional, minimal, or industrial, there is a Louis Poulsen piece that will amplify your space aesthetically, and illuminate a story of its genesis.

    Louis Poulsen, well-known for sensational and innovative lighting design and manufacturing for over a century now, remains unwavering in its original Scandinavian design tradition, where form follows function.  Beginning with the ingenious creation of the PH lamp by Poul Henningsen in 1924, where Henningsen's use of multiple concentric shades as a way to create glare-free light became the cornerstone for how Louis Poulsen would define themselves conceptually.  Every detail serves a purpose; every light is designed to enhance both the space and the people in it.

    ph-5-aarhus-11 The classic PH 5 pendant lamp (seen here in White Classic ) emits both downward and lateral light, thus illuminating itself.

     

    2017-11-10-louis-poulsen-07-44045_rgb Also design by Poul Henningsen, the PH Artichoke provides 100% glare-free light with 72 perfectly positioned leaves. The atmosphere this light creates is truly inspirational.

    Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1960, the AJ Floor Lamp is considered one of the modern classics and is the perfect reading light with downward directed light and the ability to swivel the shade for optimum distribution.

    The Louis Poulsen Lighting Collection includes the Patera Light, The ball-shaped pendant floats like a majestic focal point in the room, spreading light in all directions. At first glance, it seems to be just a white, perforated ball, but closer inspection reveals its detailed design featuring a host of circles, angles and holes. Louis Poulsen's Patera Light, designed by Øivind Slaato, is at once the essence of simplicity and elegance, and yet technically so intricate and mathematically precise in its design.

    media-1026450-tg-40 The Pantella Floor and Table Lamp were designed by Verner Panton in 1971 and remain a Danish design staple to this day. Both the base as well as the shade act to reflect light, making for a soft diffused light that adds warmth to any room.
