We recently installed the AIM lights from Flos in our shop and it got us thinking about AIM’s designers, the French brothers Ronan and Erwan Bourroullec. Like Jasper Morrison, they’ve created a body of work in a short time for various manufacturers including Vitra, Mattiazzi and Hay, that, despite its radical simplicity, is instantly recognizable as their own. We admire their respect for materials and their love of natural, organic forms and we love featuring their designs every chance we get.
Hay from Denmark is one of those lines that has an immediately recognizable identity, even as it offers an incredibly diverse range of furniture and accessories for the home. The Hay identity embodies simplicity, quality, informality and fun. Spend some time with Hay’s web site, www.hay.dk , and join us in admiring their unique and uniquely accessible take on design.
Now’s your chance to save on classic designs from Knoll…both in-stock items and special orders…now until March 4. We’re also featuring some great specials on display models — not to be missed!
String is an ingenious storage system whose beauty lies in radical simplicity, functionality and attention to detail. A small collection of wire supports, shelves and cases in a broad range of finishes can be combined in infinite ways to suit any modern space. And it looks great! Experience it for yourself in our showroom. And for more inspiration, visit www.string.se .
As another year draws to a close we’d like to send our best wishes to everyone who shares our love of design and of wonderful, interesting interior spaces. We wouldn’t be here without you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Kit.

Vancouver artist Julie Morstad is renowned for imaginative, elegant drawings of surreal domesticity.

Saturday, October 26, Kit is pleased to host Apertivo, a casual get-together with our friends from OnOurTable, makers of beautiful serving boards and wood objects for the kitchen and dining room.
