With its dynamic yet elegant lines, and hint of mid-century, the Katakana chair from Dare Studio would sit perfectly in a Neutra home. Especially in American black walnut

Everyone loves exploring an inspirational home – just look at the annual popularity of Open House. Skandium have expanded this concept and opened a four-storey townhouse in South Kensington with living and dining areas, a reading room and even a private garden. Each space is styled for living with classic and modern Scandinavian design and everything is shoppable – from the Hay sofas and Saarinen dining table to the accessories and books. Open now at 31 Thurloe Place, SW7 2HQ.
The Knot cushion from Design House Stockholm is by Icelandic designer Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir. Created from metres of entwined, knitted tubing, it’s an unusual and beautifully sculptural addition to a favourite chair.
"No two materials are alike. No two sites on earth are alike. No two buildings have the same purpose. The purpose, the site, the material determine the shape. Nothing can be reasonable or beautiful unless it’s made by one central idea, and the idea sets every detail. A building is alive, like a man."
