‘Danish brand Vipp has achieved God-like status in European design, and its minimal, well-engineered functional designs totally live up to the hype!’

Cult has been curating the slickest products from international and local designers for the best part of 20 years. They are also one of the most impressive local retailers putting Australian design on the map! So it makes sense that their range of sleek home accoutrements are always high on our list of covetable gift ideas.

You might laugh at me for telling you these rubbish bins are something of a religion in Europe but it’s true. Danish brand Vipp has achieved God-like status in European design, and its minimal, well-engineered functional designs totally live up to the hype! To complete the kitchen accessories set, Cult’s Vipp offering also includes an haute salt and pepper shaker set, porcelain espresso cups and a steel-lidded breadbox.

Or if your Dad enjoys a tipple, these seriously fancy Sferico glasses are the perfect find. They come in a range of distinctive shapes and sizes from wine goblet to champagne coupe.

And for an absolute fail-safe option, HAY is the brand to choose! Bringing together the best of Danish design tradition with contemporary style, HAY has gained cult status for its simple, colourful aesthetics. Affordable, playful and exceptionally designed, this matte finished portable lamp or perforated serving tray are the perfect understated additions to any space.
