Nebl frosted-glass planters, by Michael Rem for Gejst, are inspired by glimpses of forests through the cool mist of a foggy day.

Proving that small really can be beautiful, this holiday home by i29 Architects and Chris Collaris has a footprint of just 55 square metres. Nestled in trees alongside a lake in Amsterdam, the site and placing of the house within it was key. Divided into four parts, long sightlines provide connection and sliding glass doors keep the space open and flexible. The house is oriented so the sun floods into the right rooms at the right time of day, with large windows to maximise light and the panoramic views. Winner of House of the Year at the 2019 Frame Awards.

SOUND

Bang & Olufsen have always been on the forefront of fusing cutting-edge audio technology with dynamic design. As smart speakers become more common, their prowess at voice recognition is usually let down as soon as they begin streaming your party playlist. Not so the BeoSound 2 smart speaker. Fashioned from high-grade aluminium, its material solidity and seamless construct provides powerful 360-degree sound, free of any distortion. “Okay Google. Turn it up!”

La Granja is hidden in the wooded hills near Carretera de Forada, Ibiza. Its renovation has been more an act of preservation than transformation, with the original Iberian and Moorish farmstead hosting just six guestrooms, each pared back to eliminate the non-essential. Dark woods and imperfect raw finishes provide an elegant, painterly escape from the sun-drenched surrounds. Rural living at its most artful, La Granja provides a pastoral retreat of almost bygone simplicity, offering shadowed solitude balanced with social, open-air eating.

TERHO

Terho, created by Finnish designer Maija Puoskari for Mater, is a series of drop pendants inspired by organic forms. Unsurprisingly, ‘terho’ means ‘acorns’ in Finnish and the lamps follow the growth of an acorn over its life. The range is shaped from linden wood, sourced from FSC-certified forestry, combined with hand-blown opal glass for a calm, diffused light.

Terho lights by Mater on TheModernist.House

"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."
