This giant candle holders are ideal to give any environment a splash of light and colour. Its simple and clean lines come from a conical shape made of solid pine wood.

Etna collection is produced by Spanish company Woodendot and allows for the creation a great variety of arrangements, as it is available in three different sizes (1.150 mm, 950 mm and 800 mm) and in a six colour palette.
But it doesn’t stop there, Etna also have the table version called Etna Mini made of solid pine wood that imitate his older brothers but with reduced size, perfect to put them as a table centerpiece, in a shelf or wherever you choose.
“At the top are curves which evoke lava flows gliding down the slope of a volcano, for example the Silician one that gives the name“, said Daniel García
“Wood has a history, every piece is different, every piece was one alive. I think there is an emotional link with wooden products”, said María J. Vargas.

The god Somnus strikes Palinurus on the temples with a branch dipped in the ‘dew of Lethe,’ and Aeneas’ helmsman falls asleep. Known in Greek as Hypnos, the god of sleep glides down from the heavenly places in a swirl of dark air which dispels the shadows. Then, according to Virgil, one of the great poets of antiquity, he soars up and vanishes into the night.
The new table clock, designed by Alessandro Zambelli for Diamantini & Domeniconi, is named after this god and first goes on show at Maison et Objet in Paris from 6 – 10 September (Hall 8 now, Stand A35 – B36).
The god Hypnos – Ipno – is the son of night. The name is apt for this furnishing accessory, because the designer has given it an almost hypnotic feature: an internal pendulum. Functioning as a balance, this sways the case in perpetual motion and transforms Ipno into a ‘rocking’ clock. It is like a contemporary evolution of the pendulum clock of past ages, but wry, dynamic and creative. Here at long last is a clock free to move in space and support its own harmonic motion. It need not be wall-mounted, but can stand alone.Ipno measures 16 cm L x 20 H x 6 D. The birch case is available in a natural finish or painted in various colours. Alternatives are medium walnut or mahogany. Ipno goes on sale to the public at € 85.

Keep your laundry pegs within reach and your wash line playful with Cabina by Israeli designer Avichai Tadmor!
The initial idea was to design laundry pegs, but after some research I realized that there are many designed pegs out there, and that led me to design an accessory for pegs storage.
The inspiration for the cable car came from the observation that the container requires a movement element, so as to keep the pegs close to the ‘next’ item along the clothes line.

The Cliffhanger is a design by German designer Thomas Schmitz from Stilsucht and its natural habitat is primarily – but not exclusively – in typical German “Altbau” high ceilinged, raw, pre war buildings apartments, since two parallel water pipes are necessary to utilize the clever helper. Cliffhanger is simply clipped between them and is then available as a flexible hook. No matter whether you want to warm up the bath towel, hang a net of onions, lemons or potatos in the kitchen or want to clear away jackets and coats, the hook is versatile and universally usable and convinces through its wonderfully unpretentious appearance while being easily fastened by its own weight.
