TOP 5: The most inspiring new products

The past month was yet again filled with a plethora of new items at Finnish Design Shop, all with one common nominator: they make everyday life heaps more fun and functional! A transformable work desk from Ariake, pampering products for all the senses from Frama, and outdoor furniture with a twist designed by Maarten Baas. Design Stories hand-picked five favorites – take a look at what we found!

HAY’s beautiful Splash collection includes several vases and a serving platter. The Palissade outdoor furniture range is also by HAY.

1. HAY: Splash vase

The objects we surround ourselves with have a massive impact on how we feel, so opt for high-spirited items for a lighter and brighter mood. HAY’s stunning Splash vase is made of mouth-blown glass, with a unique technique that gives the vessel its characteristic appearance: the glass vase captures happy bursts of color in mid-twirl.

Sagyo is Japanese for ‘work’. The minimalistic Sagyo desk carries a timeless, refined look that can be easily combined with many styles of décor.

2. Ariake: Sagyo desk

Designed by Keiji Ashizawa, the minimalistic Sagyo desk is irresistibly beautiful in all its bare simplicity. Strictly functional but surprisingly versatile, the Sagyo table can be equipped with a separately sold mirror and shelf and turned into a stunning vanity.

3. NORR11: Champagne pouf

Just not that into traditional coffee tables? An elegant pouf might do the trick! Designed by Kristian Sofus Hansen and Tommy Hyldahl, the eye-catching Champagne pouf is not only perfect for resting weary feet but it can also double as an extra seat, a sympathetic side table – and a guaranteed conversation starter.

The Aligned outdoor furniture has been meticulously produced after a hand-drawn image by Maarten Baas. The Inner Circle carafe and glass are also Baas' designs.

4. Valerie Objects: Aligned outdoor furniture

The design language of outdoor furniture is often quite classic, but leave it to Dutch designer Maarten Baas to create an exception. The Aligned outdoor furniture collection carries itself elegantly but reveals a fun secret upon closer inspection: the aluminum slats are actually not aligned at all – they are all asymmetrical and unique!

Frama’s St. Pauls Apothecary range ticks all the boxes: the high-quality ingredients and luxurious scents are finished with elegant, refillable glass containers that are a treat to look at.

5. Frama: Herbarium body oil

The Herbarium body oil is part of Frama’s St. Pauls Apothecary range, featuring gentle, natural skincare products made in Denmark. A delectable combination of safflower, jojoba, and apricot seed oil, the nourishing Herbarium body oil nourishes and moisturizes the skin – and it is also ideal for the hair and face.
