Quitokeeto’ is the brainchild of San Franciscan duo Heidi Swanson and Wayne Bremser, a beautiful curation of kitchen tools and accessories that are simple, honest and full of soul. In copper, timber, steel, cast iron and ceramic, these are classic, robust pieces; some which have remained unchanged for generations simply because their functionality and materiality is unbeaten.

Those of us who seek solace in the kitchen treasure our trusty tools and the inherent sense of intuition they bring to the way we cook for those we love. The density of a pot, the breadth of a good chopping board, and the weight of a knife; as individual as the hand that holds them. There is something about the meeting of produce and authentic cooking utensils that is so essential to the most basic, and yet the biggest joy of life.

Quitokeeto enhances the ceremony of food and the celebration of a simple yet beautiful life.

Danish design studio Cabinet’s collection of furniture and display objects in coloured glass, with fine painted timber frames are youthful in their pretty uniqueness. With a strong graphic nature, it’s no wonder that these gems are a joint partnership between cabinetmaker Lea Holtoug and graphic designer Molly Kyhl.

Cabinet’s display boxes and cabinets are oversized treasure boxes awaiting cherished objects to shadow their tint with. It’s the mixture of unexpected colours and the scale that makes these exceptional objects so very precious.

New Yorker Landon Metz is renowned for his inky abstract shapes and watery colours with spasmodic perimeters. There is something inexplicably emotional in their free forms; sparse and disconnected, they are lyrical in graphic dialogue.

Moving away from this softness in his recent show at James Fuentes Gallery, New York, Metz’s new works are powerfully audacious. Owning the space, organic shapes in dense navy, like immersive markers, activate the room, so that the wall surfaces are the canvas.

The process of the artwork for Metz is in part about the experience, as Metz puts it “I’m really acknowledging the viewing experience as part of the creative process,……..thinking about how that idea upends the traditional roles of artist and audience.” Metz points out that although it was made in response to the space, it is site-dependent rather than specific. The work is reliant on ample white space to ground it, but although conceptualized for the gallery is not limited to it.

The shapes are familiar to Metz’s style, immediately recognisable in their character, only now he is outgrowing the confines of a traditional canvas. Part of the beauty of art is watching how the artist grows. Landon Metz is only at the beginning of a very fruitful calling – we cherish the history and look forward to all that is still to come.

Menorcan ‘Hotel Torralbenc’ is an idyllic retreat on the sun drenched Mediterranean island. Organic structures with crisp white-washed walls, terracotta roofs, dry walls, and picturesque gardens are the face of this Española dream.

Once a purely agricultural region, the Balearics archipelago situated off the eastern side of Spain, is now a destination for people looking for solace from the bustle of big European cities. ‘Hotel Torralbenc’s’ artisan fabrication – like the dry walls, thatched and stone arched ceilings – are a reminder of days when this level of detail was common.

Abundant in robust materials the interiors with their limestone floors and hearty slabs of timber are complemented with sisal rugs, simple upholstery in neutral palettes and soft graphic artwork. The thick walls, intimate volumes of space and play of natural light create heavenly spaces to escape to.

Brilliant garden blooms and the expansive bright blue sky punctuate this otherwise soft mirage.

Made in the spirit of ancient vessels ‘Driptopia’ from Melbourne based porcelain design studio Iggy & Lou Lou, are true to their name. Lashings of porcelain and paint are allowed to run, creating gravitational decorative surfaces.

Irene Grishin Selzer and Peter Selzer, the husband and wife team behind Iggy & Lou Lou, specialise in one off objects and jewellery. The base material of ‘Driptopia’ is made from a combination of porcelain and quartz, resulting in a luminescent blank canvas ready for their graphic touch. Strong black patterns with touches of cobalt blue and forest green adorn the vessels giving their otherwise antiquated form new life.
