Secular Retreat by architect Peter Zumthor is sited on a hill in Chivelstone, Devon. Created from volumes of layered, hand-rammed concrete and nestled amongst 5,000 species of local trees and shrubs, its huge expanses of glass afford widescreen views across the rolling landscape. It’s the latest commission by Living Architecture, who have six other houses by world-class architects like John Pawson, MVRDV and NORD, sited in equally-stunning locales across the countryside. Their mission is to widen the experience of living in the best of modern architecture to those who wouldn’t normally have access, and each is available to book for that ideal design escape.

FRAMED

Designed by Koenraad Ruys for Moca in Belgium, Framed is artfully-reduced storage at its most graphic. Created from a series of colour-block volumes, held together in a linear frame, the collection includes sideboards, tables and cupboards. Coated in pristine lacquer, Framed is available in a myriad of expressive colourways – plus a new all-black finish for the colour-averse.

Unveiled in 1950, the CH23 dining chair was the first of five pieces Hans J. Wegner designed for iconic Danish firm Carl Hansen & Søn. Refined and beautifully crafted, the CH23 embodied the attention to detail Carl Hansen was noted for, from its elegantly-formed woodwork to the double-woven paper-cord seat. After decades out of production, the CH23 has been reissued for admirers of timeless craftsmanship.

ASTRO

Astro is a series of oak trays that can be combined and stacked in endless combinations. Whether used as a desk tidy, serving platters for guests' drinks or a still-life display, all those everyday items you never know where to put now have a place. Designer Nestor Campos named them with reference to the universe, where all elements, however small or disparate, are brought together into order.

TheModernist.House by Mark King at MDKtm

"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."
