Minimalux is a British company that designs and produces accessories for you and your home. The brand makes use of premium materials and lustrous finishing in order to produce a simplistic collection of understated products for the modern minded, luxury consumer. The products are made by expert craftsmen and engineers, and are hand finished or polished to an exceptional level. The brand encourages the natural ageing process of its goods by not treating them after they're finished.
One of our personal favorite objects from the latest collection is the Timeless leather/brass watch. Except it's not a watch... The bracelet has an elegant mirror instead of a dial as a metaphor for today's time obsessed society.

Belgian designer Michaël Verheyden creates uncommon objects for common rituals and walks through the entire production process in his home. He blends serene shapes and meandering materials into pure and refined creations. In his quest for simplicity, the craftsman prefers noble and durable materials that feel natural and age beautifully such as marble, leather, bronze and oak.
Tennen is a lifestyle product company that pushes new ideas and technologies, whilst embracing those things that time cannot change - think of light, the changing seasons and the inherent sensual qualities of materials. As they believe simplicity leads to timelessness and ensures a heightened awareness of the senses, founders Sarah and Ethan pursue this characteristic in their design work.
Ystudio wishes to bring back the imagination in your life through its products, which is why the company designs items for daily use.
