Mud Australia, a timeless modern ceramics brand designed and made in Sydney, Australia, creates a special window installation. Since 1994 Shelley Simpson has been perfecting her gorgeous line of handmade porcelain made from the finest natural and non-toxic materials. Each piece is hand poured in her studio, with the color tinted through the clay giving the finished product a depth of color not available from traditional surface glazing. Fired at the highest kiln temperature, these pieces defy their delicate appearance and are all microwave, oven and dishwasher safe. Don’t miss this special temporary window installation.

Vitsoe (pronounced vit-soo), the timeless brand that has made Dieter Rams’ furniture for more than 50 years. (Yes, that Dieter Rams. The author of the Ten Principles of Good Design). Vitsœ’s shop in Los Angeles, which opened quietly in July 2017, is in one of the few walkable areas of Los Angeles, on West 3rd Street. Not familiar with Vitsoe?

Their iconic 606 shelving system is endlessly customizable, from one ledge to a whole library of mixed drawers, tables, and shelves—and its genius is its no-tools-necessary assembly once the the tracks are up. Called out by Clever as the ultimate investment furniture, Vitsoe is all about creating things that allow people to live better, with less, that lasts longer.
