Hem, the latest name to arrive at OPUMO, create unique homeware and furniture that aims to fit perfectly into the way people work, relax, host, share and live today. With nods to both Italian and Nordic design and a twist of mid-century feel, Luca Nichetto’s luxurious Hai chair is one of the stand-out pieces from the brand’s latest collection due to its classic-meets-contemporary design. Inspired by the sleek form a whale shark – as suggested by the Finnish ‘hai’ name – the armchair comprised a slender, elegant metal frame and invitingly soft upholstery.

The creative project of graphic designer Marc Hendrick, Slowdown Studio offers a limited-edition collection of woven blankets made in collaboration with some of the world’s finest artists.

Each intricately woven cotton canvas is a celebration of individuality and also an invitation to ‘grab a coffee, a book and a blanket, and simply slow it down’.
