A couple of notable updates in the shop this week. We replaced the E27 lights in our kitchen with mouth blown pendants designed by Alvar Aalto. I think they would look brilliant in a kitchen or in a bathroom, the shape is so iconic but the opal glass adds a nice softness.
We also received new handmade cutting boards by Tomiyama Takakazu. I’ve admired these cutting boards for a long time and I’m honored to be able to bring them to our shop. The boards are made of Japanese walnut, Chestnut, and oak, and finished with a house made concoction containing fish oil. It smells really good.
