Extra&ordinary Design is a London-based design studio founded by designer Hyunhee Hwang who focuses on design-led products that transform ordinary spaces into the extraordinary. For the past 10 years, Hwang has worked in the design industry in South Korea and England, honing her aesthetic which comes to life through playful colors, sculptural shapes, and the use of jesmonite.

The brand’s latest collection is called Scala, featuring a series of objects, like a vase, candle holder, incense holder, and trays, inspired by Roman marble architecture, particularly marble block stairs and columns. Each piece is individually cast and handmade giving them marble-like characteristics and unique finishes.
