If you follow me on instagram or facebook you have probably already seen the images of the new ICO Collection.

I’m so excited to finally tell you about this project I have been working on for over a year!  I’m always on the lookout for beautiful products to feature in the webshop but sometimes it feels like there is so much unnecessary ‘stuff’.  I hate clutter but like objects that serve a purpose, things that are functional.  Interior Architect Marc Merckx and I collaborated on the ICO Collection.  He has designed so many beautiful things: a stone bowl that turns into a chopping board, a tray that serves as a bread board, a chair that can be used inside or out….

The materials used for the Collection go back to the archetypal kitchen.  They are solid, natural materials pleasing to use and touch.  Copper and brass refer to the traditional pots, pans, sinks and taps and have been selected because they are warm and tactile materials that age beautifully over time.  Each piece from marble and terrazzo – often used for worktops and sinks – is sculpted from a single block.  Wood is the traditional material for chopping boards and butcher’s blocks.

A small selection of objects is for sale in the webshop now with more coming up soon.

All this combined with my dayjob means I am rather busy… so I won’t be checking in on the blog regularly.  If you wish, you can follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.  If you want to know when new objects will be added, you can also subscribe to the newsletter.

With thanks to The Fresh Light for the beautiful photography and Nightingale for spreading the news and PR support.
