G lassware Calm collection Celia Dowson wants to make things that are not only beautiful to look at, but that encourage us to slow down and linger over them. “The Rhossili collection takes on forms that propose a function,” she says. “However, they are not designed to be used in a traditional sense; instead they offer sites for reflection and contemplation.” The collection of plates and vessels are cast in different thicknesses of glass and depending on the light, these colors can shift from subtle pinks to grays and blues and greens.


As its name suggests, the Shell chair was inspired by sea objects, but it also has an anatomical look. “The structure is almost like a body, with vertebra and spine,” says designer Marco Sousa Santos of his tripod-style creation. Made for his Branca Lisboa brand, the chair cocoons you with its wide seat and extra-thick upholstery. Brought to life by local craftsmen, the round organic form is created by skillfully shaping birch plywood.
