Influences. The pared-back, simplified aesthetic that's associated with Scandinavian design has been massively influential, but we also love the 1950s and, of course, Gio Ponti. His genius lies in the simplification of line and the enhancement of form using small details, sometimes unexpected. Along with Eileen Gray and Fornasetti, these were the designers who lead us into the modern design age. Having said that, I love Arts and Crafts, from William Morris in England to Josef Hoffman and Adolf Loos in Vienna, as well as the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. We travel quite a bit these days and always try to fit in a visit to the museum of decorative arts in whatever city we're in. On a trip to Prague in January, we saw an extraordinary exhibition of modern art glass made by Czech glass artists, and an intriguing exhibition showing the link between the indigo-making tradition of Japan and that of Czechia. All reminding us of the importance of creativity and the continuation of traditional forms of making things. Next. I'm launching a carefully curated furniture line and glassware for domestic use, working on a scent with a Florentine friend and hoping to have a beautiful diffuser to share in the next six months or so.
