Adrian Gidi - &k Low res-3

&klevering is a Dutch design brand based in Amsterdam which makes delightful home decorations and gift items. Their new collection was one of the highlights of my visit to ShowUP 2016 a couple of weeks back.

How could I not fall in love? They presented two of my favourite design themes in their new winter collection:

Cosmic showcases iridescent items in shimmering rainbow hues. I love anything pearlescent and shining – just like a cat. The vivid pinks, the crystalline purples and acid greens all washed in a sheen of gold or silver… I especially love the lamps and vases in darker tones. Dramatic and spacey.

The other theme is truly close to my heart; Collage is reminiscent of the designs of the Memphis art movement from Milan. It is still one of my biggest design dreams to own a Tahiti lamp by Ettore Sottsass. This trend is truly becoming a big one: playful colours, geometric shapes, cut and paste and modular concepts. I love the more subtle colour combinations of pink, green and pale peach.

Can’t wait to see these items on stores soon!
