Malmo-based design studio Swedish Ninja, headed up by Maria Gustavsson, recently released two new products that merge metal bases and cork with colorful flecks to spice up your interior (or spice up your life if you want to get that song stuck in your head. Both the Notebook Cabinet and Bench will be part of the Swedish Design Pavilion at this year’s London Design Fair in September.
First up is the Notebook Cabinet which is designed to store your stuff inside while highlighting photos, inspiration, or clippings on the outside, like a notebook. The doors are covered in practical cork, but not just any old cork. This cork has confetti-like bits of color mixed in giving it a fun, playful appearance.
The oval Notebook Bench features a similar metal base that’s topped off with a piece of color speckled cork for moments of reflection or just as a light-hearted piece of furniture to add to your collection.
