Lea Baert works with craftsmen from small villages in Panama and together they have produced a beautiful unique selection of handcrafted and handwoven pieces – wall art, tables, lamps.
The key piece in the collection recycles ventilator grilles as the “weft” on which weavers from the village Membrillo proceed to employ their weaving skills. The bases are first crafted by a potter from the village of La Arena, and then reinterpreted by another craftsman who carves from a delicate and rare local soapstone.

When Caitlin and Samuel Dowe-Sandes bought a 1950s house in Gueliz, a neighborhood in the heart of modern Marrakech, they painted it in shades of inky blue, clear azure, and cool gray, animated by similar colors in the vividly patterned tiles they produce in their small factory in town. The couple came to Marrakech nine years ago, with the idea of taking a year off from their busy Los Angeles–based lives. Two months after arriving, they started a bespoke tile company, Popham Design, with a factory that grew to employ some 60 locals. source : Elle Decor

Japanese designer Nendo has produced a collection of candles which slowly reveal color and scent as it burns. Called ‘Sunset’ candles, each appear white at first, but once lit, the heat reacts to the center and begins changing to yellow then orange, red, purple, and finally to blue. The idea was influenced by the shifting shades of light during sunset; reflecting the soft transitioning of hues. Each color is accompanied by a scent: bergamot, lemongrass, sweet marjoram, lavender, and geranium. By combining scent and sight, the candle not only provides illumination, but represents the passage of time.
