Milan Designweek 2018: Noble Souls

Noble Souls

Timothy Oulton has introduced his newest range ‘Noble Souls’ at Milan Designweek 2018. ‘Noble Souls’ living, lighting and dining, is designed to add an extra feeling of “sensory joy” to an interior. Come to think of it; adressing the human senses is a very important part in interior design, nowadays (the mass-production-days) it’s even the most luxurious part. Everything in the ‘Noble Souls’ range is made by hand, at human scale. Hidden luxury and social awareness; very on trend!

“today’s real luxuries are moments, not things “

The concept for this colllection is based on the work of ancient craftsmen, their techniques and the natural materials that have been used for thousands of years. Oulton succeeded to turn these ingredients into a modern yet comfortable range: using only 100% natural vegetable dyes, feathers and natural linens. ‘Noble Souls’ is pure luxury!

Souvenir Doll With a Nasty Face

Souvenir Doll With a Nasty Face

Look what we stumbled on the other day. This Souvenir Doll is SO well made (by hand). But. What a nasty and unfriendly face she has! Or is she just sad? Never mind. It is some fine Folk art! N’est pas?

We think she’s from Poland but we’re not sure.

On Instagram we noticed the Choke Chokers, a project by designer Sinéad O’Dwyer and project manager Ottilie Landmark. The project was “born out of a desire to re-imagine leather waste materials.” These lovely leather sexy sustainable necklaces debuted at Copenhagen Fashion Week with a pop-up shop. And today you can get them custom made for your neck in London. More info @choke_chokers on instagram

What is Choke Chokers?

It started with a simple design idea for a choker. We used what materials we had to make the first and realised that this principle was important to us. Thus all our leather and fur are remnants from the fashion industry that would otherwise be discarded. This project is therefore not just about creating a high quality handmade product but has also opened a window for us to provoke a dialogue about sustainability.
