Here is a recap of my favorite discoveries and product launches from the last few days. This week I’m showing you four new furniture by top Scandinavian brands as well as a cute, miniature version of a beloved monkey.

 

Enfold Sideboard from Muuto

Muuto just launched a new sideboard called Enfold. Made of lacquered steel and oak, the new design by Thomas Bentzen has a modern industrial expression. It is available in several colorways and in two sizes.

“Enfold Sideboard came from the many factory visits that I do as a designer, prompting me to explore the aesthetic appeal of industrial objects. I wanted to translate this element into the modern home, combined with an appreciation of the Scandinavian design tradition.” — Thomas Bentzen
