I’m really loving the homewares from newly formed houseware brand Shibui, a collaboration between designers Constantino Hoursoglou and Athanasios Babalis. Shibui is inspired by the Japanese philosophy of shibui, referring to a simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty.
Based in Switzerland, the designers aimed to take a stand against mass consumerism by creating objects that are high quality, yet natural and sustainable. Each item is produced by small, family-owned producers in Europe.
The line debuted this year at both IMM Cologne and Maison & Objet.
