you’ll certainly remember the amazing bags and jewellery by designer Syrette Lew under her label Moving Mountains. well, Syrette has expanded those design talents into a burgeoning line of furniture. the collection currently features multi-functional nesting tables, an a-framed mirror, a modern take on the traditional farm table and – one of my favourite things – a classic windsor bench.
Mies Van der Rohe once said that “An interesting plainness is the most difficult and precious thing to achieve.” The first collection from Moving Mountains, attempts to embody this idea. In the absence of ornamentation, specific design elements and details are carefully calculated and considered in order to achieve a timeless simplicity that draws an emotional connection.
