After honing his craft producing exclusively made-to-order pieces, we are proud to present the very first retail collection from Oliver Ruuger. The collection launches with four distinct umbrellas, commissioned especially for LN-CC in a custom range of materials and colourways. Each umbrella is hand crafted in Ruuger’s small, London workshop using many intricate processes in order to execute these bold, premium pieces. Umbrellas are used as traditional, everyday items and have almost been forgotten in design. Oliver Ruuger however, has reintroduced these familiar items as something luxurious and indulgent by using specialist, time consuming techniques and carefully-sourced exotic leathers, woods and metals.

Most office chairs are designed to give us comfort and support as we sit in front of a computer all day — but with the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, we're pulled away from our desktop setups more and more. The Steelcase Gesture Chair was designed with this change in mind. As such, it's built to support a wide variety of postures and sitting preferences, promising to give you support whether you're banging away at a keyboard, casually browsing a report on your iPad, or cranking out a quick text on your phone. Oh, and it doesn't look too shabby, either. Coming this fall.
This is so cool, if I’d have one, I’d never ever keep any of my watches on my wrist or smoke any of my cigars. Like a golden era to modern times fortress mash-up, The Fortress is the best name Dottling could have found for this state of the art safe. Because keeping money in a safe is too mainstream, and you’re a rich hipster after all, this safe keeps your watches, cigars and jewellery away from -- well away from anything and anyone. And if it doesn’t you’ll get $1,000,000 – the certified insurance cover. The Fortress can also “silently” alert police if attempts are made to open it.The thing I like the most about it is you can actually match it with your black leather armchair. I’ll take two.

Designed by Bercy Chen Architecture and located in Austin, Texas is the Edgeland House.
