CULTI MILANO founded in 1990 by Alessandro Agrati, eclectic interior designer, who realised what a fragrance can do to characterize an environment and drew his inspiration from rattan handwork to create the first sticks diffuser: a product of new design which uses this material to release fragrance into private and public spaces.
Thus, CULTI MILANO’s iconic product was born: the company developed its production in this segment, and soon became the world’s leading brand forresearch, quality of the materials, the exclusivity of its fragrances. This is why originality is one of the essential values of the CULTI MILANO brand, the first to introduce a new system to diffuse the fragrance in the air, a system which has now become widely used.
The company has been in business for 25 years; it is a subsidiary of INTEK GROUP spa, an Italian holding company with a diversified presence in the industrial, financial and services sectors. Its ownership structure guarantees solidity of CULTI MILANO and its investment potential. 2015 marked the beginning of a major process of renewal, in terms strategy and organisation.
The existing products were rationalised, and new concept created, including newly formulated fragrances. The goals that the company had set for itself, in fact, were both to confirm the brand’s high-end positioning in the market and to continue to be a trail blazer, introducing new ideas and new trends for a highly refined, demanding clientele seeking increasingly sophisticated sensory stimuli.
In fragrance and component selection the utmost attention is paid to quality, which is yet another primary value of CULTI MILANO, a distinctive trait of the brand which plays a significant role in product choice, together with other objective factors and a strong emotional appeal. The refinement of the fragrances, combined with the elegance of the containers and the packaging, have made the CULTI MILANO product into an undisputed style icon.

KLOVE STUDIO - dedication to local craftsmen, commitment to experimentation and interest in research.
Prateek Jain and Gautam Seth began klove studio in 2006 with the goal of making light products that merged fantasy, reality, functionality and design. Bent on experimentation and inspired by the skills they learnt from working with traditional Indian craftsmen. The duo began to hone their dream of creating a hands-on, locally grounded brand that was synonymous with the highest quality of hand blown glass possible.
Now, more than a decade in to business, klove has become a globally applauded brand. Employing over sixty highly skilled workers, the brand has developed a wide range of products that span larger than life 3D installations and basic, functional lighting for the home. Each product is stamped with what has become klove’s signature: bold, refined design that borrows equally from Prateek and Gautam’s roots Indian roots and their love for global travel and adventure.
klove's Founders Partners in business and adventure, Prateek and Gautam have built a strong, enviable partnership. Their collective interests span travel, yoga, horticulture and the arts; these passions, and their differing personal preferences within them, add complex dimensions to their design inspirations. The striking commonality between Prateek and Gautam --that lies at the core of the klove philosophy -- is their dedication to local craftsmen, commitment to experimentation and interest in research. Furthermore, the duo always prioritize local, hands-on practical experience above any other form of learning; getting their hands dirty while working with fragile materials is a particular experience they thrive on.

At GUAXS we try to develop sculptural objects, that change the atmosphere of a room and have an effect on the people around them. We draw our inspiration from forms of nature and cultural artefacts, always influenced by personal experience gathered on travels, intuition and close observation.
Our objects are made of authentic and sustainable materials, manufactured by hand following practical knowledge and handicraft techniques developed over centuries. Each piece shows the variable traces of human work on its surface, creating interplay between sculptural form and texture.
More specifically, the design of our glass objects combines these aspects with a nuanced and strong color impression, leading to a smooth and natural appearance. This allows them to integrate well into any architecture, while remaining something special and magic at the same time.

It is every architect’s dream to build with light. The Stickbulb collection takes this aspiration literally. Sleek wooden beams come in one to six foot lengths and are designed to plug into and out of various steel hardware connectors without tools. The result is a light-up erector set of interchangeable components that allows for unlimited customization and creativity.
Inspired by a pile of long linear wooden cut-offs in their workshop, RUX designers challenged themselves to develop a truly sustainable lighting system. As a starting point, they only considered designs that could be manufactured locally and affordably within a five mile radius of their New York City office. They chose to use reclaimed and sustainably sourced woods as a primary building material, and sourced energy efficient LED technologies and components. The collection was designed with the least number of parts possible and with connections that make the pieces easy to separate for maintenance, recycling, or reuse.
Stickbulb was co-founded in 2012 by RUX Founder and Creative Director Russell Greenberg, and Partner Christopher Beardsley.

Big Blue Company - treasures from coral reefs reclaimed as objets d’art because they inspire timelessly.
There's something about Nature's bounty that makes you want to incorporate it seamlessly into your home. For thousands of years, the treasures from coral reefs - namely giant clams, corals and shells - have been reclaimed as objets d’art because their infinite variety in shape, colour, and pattern timelessly inspires.
We, for one, are obsessed with these wild treasures of the sea, knowing full well that hunting for original, timeless home accessories to bring life to your interior can feel like a never ending mission.
But there’s a catch (pun intended): our big blue isn’t that big anymore. An insatiable appetite for the ocean's treasures means that coral reefs worldwide are suffering. There might not even be any left in a matter of years if we carry on at this rate.
So that’s where Big Blue Company comes in. Born in 2016, we create beautiful sea inspired pieces that will add organic elegance to your home without exploiting our oceans one little bit. We won’t tell any lies - our products are 100% “ingenuine” artefacts. And proud of it. No blurring of lines with environment compliance certificates and fighting with sustainability boards here.
Our collection of replica giant clams, seashells and corals is crafted from sustainable materials, 3D technology, hand-finished in China and made with our love of the big blue… and several trips with a pair of flippers and a waterproof camera. Big Blue's range of synthetic corals, shells and sea inspired sculptures is remarkably real to not only look at but to feel as well. In short you could make a complete artificial reef from our range or you could just enjoy one of our pieces to dot around your home.
Each piece is a timeless treasure, incorporating the essence of Nature through intelligent design, adding a sensuous touch of wild beauty to your home. We hope you enjoy being the first to know about our collection and look forward to sharing our journey with you.

Our work is based on exhaustive and continuing research into methods, materials, techniques and styles.

Working from original documents that range from an entire wall's worth of antique wallpaper to a modest box of faded, water damaged scraps still attached to chunks of plaster, Adelphi Paper Hangings has successfully reproduced wallpapers which date from the 1740s through the 1930s. By understanding the nature of historic paints, the muting effect of time, as well as the historic context and fashions, Adelphi Paper Hangings can successfully interpret documentary evidence and accurately reproduce the style, character and look of original period documents.
In addition to historic American, French and English patterns from its own extensive collection of original wallpaper documents, Adelphi offers patterns licensed from the archives of Historic New England, The Smithsonian Institution, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Old Sturbridge Village, the New York State Historical Association, the Musée du Papier Peint (Rixheim, France), and from many other historic institutions and private collections.

ZELOUF+BELL - an intensely personal new modernism, a distillation of what delights and moves, informed by that which came before.
Studio furniture makers ZELOUF+BELL and their team of master craftsmen have been making museum-quality furniture to commission in their workshop in Ireland since 1992. Their award-winning work is in private collections, public offices, embassy residences, churches and museums, at home and abroad.
The alliance of Belfast-born Michael Bell and New Yorker Susan Zelouf may seem a collision of cultures and characters; instead, a kind of alchemy occurs, engendering extraordinary pieces grounded in practicality, a dialogue between art, design and history. “We don’t fit in, but for us that’s a strategy.” Theirs is an intensely personal new modernism, a distillation of what delights and moves them, informed by that which came before. ZELOUF+BELL are represented in New York by Maison Gerard, in Dublin by Solomon Fine Art and in the colourful Parisian showrooms of David Hicks France. The National Museum of Ireland acquired three Zelouf+Bell pieces for the museum's permanent collection.
Recent projects include the redesign of Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud (Ireland's only two star Michelin) and conference furniture for the Department of Enterprise and Employment, Kildare Street, Dublin.Zelouf+Bell garnered two awards at the Architectural Digest Show 2015; Best Decorative Accessory by IFDA (International Furnishing and Design Association) and Best Overall Craftsmanship by Adorno Magazine. Recent articles about their work appeared in Modern Magazine, Financial Times 'How To Spend It', The Sunday Times and The Irish Arts Review.

SAM VAN GURP x ESTHER JONGSMA
VANTOT is the collective title for the works of Esther Jongsma and Sam van Gurp. Both Eindhoven based designers graduated at Design Academy Eindhoven. Operating from The Netherlands VANTOT focuses on autonomous product design and commissioned work.
In 2014, Esther Jongsma (1990, Utrecht) and Sam van Gurp (1990, Breda) launched their own design studio called VANTOT. Esther and Sam both graduated from the Design academy Eindhoven in 2008-2009. Esther is outgoing and looks at her designs from a broad perspective: "I love to work with many people from different disciplines". Besides working on her own design collections, Esther also works as a project manager and coordinator for multiple projects and has already gained considerable experience in the design and realisation of exhibitions. Sam, in many ways, is the polar opposite of Esther and focuses on business development to the tiniest detail. Besides that, he is a real creator and a technician who loves to deal with progressive design questions.
The designs of studio VANTOT all encompass a certain complexity. For example, the pendant lamp series Exploded View and Limpid Lights. These series allow for the adjustment of the intensity of light and colour by moving the light source in the hood. Besides that, there is the Passage Carpet that creates intriguing optical effects by means of an intricate geometric pattern of layered wood as you walk by. According to Sam, who is often inspired by engineering works and ingenious movement mechanisms, the studio likes "to experiment with movement and new interpretations of familiar features". Furthermore, as explained by Esther, VANTOT aims "to involve the user differently”.
