Today, I’m drawn to these drop dead gorgeous images showcasing the work of Studio Oliver Gustav.
From a studio, showroom and boutique in central Copenhagen, a carefully curated edit of designers and artists from around the world – Faye Toogood, Michaël Verheyden and Poul Kjærholm amongst others – sit against a monochrome interior. Beautiful pieces and striking lighting create a dramatic, yet intensely serene interior that feels timeless and elegant. I love each piece of the collection, not to mention that knock-out shade of grey used on the walls and ceilings.

Beautiful objects create a stillness in this house in Genk, Brussels, home to an industrial designer and his wife. Michael Verheyden’s pieces are the simplest of forms – simple cylinders, round bowls, rectilinear tables, low slung reclining chairs, a singular rod of brass bent into a floor lamp. The materials – bronze, soapstone, cement, marble and wood – bring the forms to life, adding beauty and sensuality.
‘If you work with a material long enough, it will tell you the form it should take’.
