A collection of egg-inspired design, for you and your home. No egg-based hair products have been included, due to dark childhood memories of my mom's experiments on me with homemade hair treatments (though the mayonnaise one was definitely the worst). Clockwise from top left: Birdfeeder by Amy Adams, Branch; Gianna Rose Robin's Egg Soaps, The Conran Shop; Basket Bowl by Amy Adams, Branch; Egg Chair by Nanna and Jorgen Ditzel, Unica Home; Gem Necklaces by Dinosaur Designs; Egg Porcelain Vase by Marcel Wanders for Moooi, Unica Home; Stella Glass (beer) by Elina Joensuu, finnstyle.
Fritz Hansen is marking the 50th anniversary of Arne Jacobsen's iconic Egg Chair with a special limited edition of 999 Eggs in brown suede and leather with a bronze base. Each chair will be numbered, with a short history of the Egg printed on the back. More info here.
