Living in the mid-Atlantic it can be both chilly and cool or swelteringly hot depending upon the time of the year, so this would definitely come in handy. The Degré by Accent is a portable, auxiliary heating and/or cooling system which is meant to supplement your main temperature moderating unit by creating a bubble of warm or cool air around the user almost instantly. By its playful shape and its cozy, tactile texture, the Degré is designed to be touched, rested against and even sat upon.

Previously available in white, grey and blue, the iconic Me lamp is now also available in matt black.

These porcelain bells by Michele Quan are the perfect canvas on which to exhibit her love of drawing, painting, text and colour. Originally from Vancouver, Canada, but now based in New York, Quan designs and sculpts the ceramic objects using forms that are built by hand, wheel thrown in stoneware or porcelain, and hand painted. The images and script she engraves on the pieces have their roots in the visual symbols of Eastern iconography and reflect her interest in symbolism, literature and ideology. She hopes that her work will serve as both an object of contemplation to inspire reverence and as a source of encouragement and refuge. The bells are hung by hemp rope while the clappers are made of reclaimed wood.

atelier oï designed the Decompose vase for Danese/Artemide S. p. A. It combines a lifeless element – an industrial, semifinished product – with nature. The vase starts as a solid, cylindrical  form but becomes more immaterial as you progress along its length with strips whose width decreases gradually, into rings that stretch upwards at an angle. The thought behind the design originated from the idea of opening the rings into a progression that changes each time. Through industrial processing using a cutting principle, the object is turned into a form whose shape is not modified, but rather carries on the idea of growth in its interaction with the nature contained within.

Made of laser-cut anodised aluminium, the Decompose vase is fitted with a clear glass element to hold flowers and plants.

A collaboration we never saw coming (although they did produce 100 hand-painted refrigerators for Salone Del Mobile last year) and didn't know we needed is this line of small kitchen appliances from Dolce & Gabbana and SMEG. Entitled Sicily Is My Love, the line is covered with colourful Italian motifs and icons of Sicilian folklore including lemons, prickly pears and acanthus leaves.

The full Sicily Is My Love collection will be available in October.
