Young South Australian design duo (and married couple, I think?) Emma Aiston and Daniel To – aka Daniel Emma, have just launched their fantastic new ‘Solids’ collection at 100% Design London 2009. I really looooove these unique and slightly kooky desk accessories… How great are the brave chunky shapes and combination of glass, timber and bright primary colours? They would work so well on my imaginary desk with my imaginary StudioIlse lamp. :)
After graduating from Industrial Design at the University of South Australia in 2007, Daniel and Emma spent 2 years gaining invaluable work experience with some super high-profile design studios in London including Thorsten van Elten and Marc Newson, if you don’t mind! They exhibited their first range, ‘Shapes’, last year in both London and Tokyo, they were recently included in the *Wallpaper magazine graduate directory, and have also been shortlisted for this year’s Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award.
Something tells me we’ll be seeing a lot more from these two!
