Fabric of my Life.

on the menu


another standout presentation at maison & objet was danish brand menu, who have really gone from strength to strength over in the past year since  jonas bjerre-poulsen and kasper rønn at norm architects took over the brand’s design management, and introduced collaborations with establish well-known designers such as gamfratesi, cecilie manz and andres engesvik, as well as new international talents that all have one thing in common: that special kind of curiosity, integrity and design philosophy.

for ss14 menu presented a creative and imaginative design range that they’ve dubbed “soft minimalism” – where geometrical purity, uncomplicated naturalness and a subtle sense of cool and calm are the key players. the products have been designed to bridge the masculine and the feminine with an obsessive attention to detail and introduces functional furniture and objects that not only meet people’s everyday needs, but also create joy.

some of my favourite new pieces include the yeh wall table which is a perfectly formed resting place for books, table lamps and other small objects, as well as a multi-functional full-length mirror by kaschkasch, which offers a clever solution for space urban environments as its shape is ideal to fit in a tight corner. but the product that most excited me – which is very surprising considering i don’t even like beer – was this super stylish rose gold beer foamer; the perfect gift for the man who has everything!

menu as beer foamer

once you’ve poured your glass of beer, save a little in the bottle to decant into the foamer and simply run the whisk for 30-40 seconds and watch the foam rise in the glass, before gently pouring out onto the top of your beer. genius, right?

(although i’m far more likely to put it to use frothing soy milk for my morning latte…)
