We wanted to feature something special from Design House Stockholm, but everything they create is special.
So, instead of just a product, we want to tell you a little bit about them...
Much like a publishing house would work with a collection of authors, Design House Stockholm collaborates with more than 60 independent designers. From new and up-and-coming designers, to established talent, they seek out fresh ideas from across the globe. Then, instead of trying to force the idea of an octagon into a round hole, they utilize their extensive networks to find the right production facility.
The end result is a collection of stunningly beautiful, and functional, objects.
Here are three of our favourites...
Mouth blown glass carafe with a sensual shape and round crystal ball stopper. An inverted 'nest' at the bottom of the vessel provides a unique setting for the ball to nestle within creating an entirely new perspective. Created by Nina Jobs.
A sing-song girl's name plays on the utilitarian aspect of a chic basket for your bicycle. Inspired by traditional crocheted tablecloths, Carrie has a unique mounting fixture for which allows the basket to be easily removed. With the adjustable strap you can carry it through the grocers, to a farmer's market or tote it on a picnic. We think it is the prettiest, and most unique, bicycle basket we have ever seen. By Marie-Louise Gustafsson.

Magic. That one word can be used to describe the Flame tealight holder. It is definitive of the illusion of the flame hovering freely above the body of the lamp. Magic is also used as a term in British slang to describe something fabulous. Adopting advanced telescope construction technology, the reflective interior creates the fantasy.
