10 Jun 2016

As the Life Store expands and grows, each new addition is carefully chosen to seamlessly fit into our curated offer, whilst also bringing something new and unique into the mix. From traditional Japanese porcelain kitchenware from Hasami to classically minimal scandinavian homewares from Skagerak, these are the latest brands you need to know.





Hasami Porcelain are based in one of the foremost pottery districts in Japan; Nagasaki. Hasami's range of porcelain tableware is characterised by its ultra clean lines, smooth texture and organic feel. All Hasami products are made within a certain group of dimensions, meaning they can be stacked for ease of storage and to enhance the beauty and harmony of the overall design aesthetic of the brand. A store favourite already.

Norden is run by husband and wife team Erika and Pete Panciera. Each Norden product aims to encapsulate that special feeling you get from items passed down through generations, or when something feels like it was made for you and only you. Fed up of people throwing things away, Norden's candles are designed to be used as containers when the candle has fully burnt. A great idea in a world filled with consumables that we take for granted.

              DOMINIK WOODS


              Dominik Woods began his career as a graphic designer in France, before deciding to take a more hands on approach to being creative. He began his woodworking career under master luthier John S. Kinnard, and after creating his first wooden cutting boards, he began receiving requests from friends and family and it took off. It remains a one man operation, with Dominik selecting each piece of wood himself, and crafting each product by hand in his studio. Each piece of wood is strong and beautiful, and is treated with a natural beeswax and food-safe mineral oil blend.
