Faceture - a unique range of lights, vessels and side tables by NZ designer Phil Cuttance - now available in Australia via Sydney online store The Minimalist.

Faceture vessels by Phil Cuttance - at Sydney online store The Minimalist.

The Minimalist is a brand new online store, founded by Sydney-based interior and textile designer Leah Robins. Leah has sourced a distinctive edit of home accessories from around the globe, with a focus on products that are crafted in small editions rather than mass produced.

Of her company ethos, Leah says 'We do believe in love at first sight, but we don’t believe in excess. Our collections are small, carefully curated and uncluttered - so that our customers homes can be too.'  Very nicely put!

The Minimalist online store launched just last week with a succinct range of lighting, vessels, and handmade baskets.  The standout I reckon is the Faceture collection by NZ designer Phil Cuttance pictured above - a series of striking faceted handmade vessels, light shades and side tables.  (Check out this sweet little video about the making of the Faceture series!)

The Minimalist online store will introduce a new product collection by a different designer every 60 days... and ALSO, Leah has secured a fantastic retail space in Surry Hills, so a bricks and mortar shop will follow the online offering very shortly.  Coooool.  Keep your eyes peeled Sydneysiders!

Fabulous multi-use 'Varpunen' vessels from Finnish husband and wife team Suki and Jussi Vento, made from printed PVC-laminated white polyester scrim, and available from The Minimalist online store.  CUTE!
