Remoderns beautifully crafted minimalist gifts for friends, loved ones or clients
The festive season is fast approaching and REMODERN is the perfect place to source beautifully crafted minimalist designs for friends, loved ones or clients. Our distinctive range of minimalist accessories begin at just $10, which also makes them a desirable and enduring alternative to disposable Kris Kringle gifts.
Bentu is setting an exciting new direction for design. Formed in 2011, its designs have been exhibited at Milan Design Week and its pioneering approach to sustainability (combined with inspiring design) made it a very worthy winner of a prestigious Red Dot Design Award earlier this year.
All of the following gift ideas are designed by Bentu and crafted from recycled concrete. The natural variations in texture and colour make each object truly unique and, just like the festive season, worthy of celebration.
POTS AND PLANTERS
The Zero range has more to offer than its name suggests. Crafted from recycled concrete, the vessels are available in four sizes – the larger two function as storage vessels or plant pots with drainage holes in the base, while the small two are ideal matching base plates.
With sizes ranging from small to extra-large, Bentu’s Four collection of modular vessels can be stacked or arranged together in sequence of height. Made from recycled concrete, they serve as stylish storage vessels and the larger pots are the perfect home for plants.
The rectangular 4L vessels are available in four heights and can be displayed in flexible arrangements. The smaller sizes can also serve as base plates for the larger vessels when used for plants.
The Chao vessels have a distinct hexagonal shape and can be stacked or arranged together to create sculptural formations. The larger sizes are also perfect for plants.
The refined craftsmanship of the Yuan plant pots is highlighted by their simple geometric form. Available in two sizes, they can stand alone, side-by-side, or in a range of formationsand be admired from all angles. Matching Min base plates can be purchased separately from REMODERN.
Fang has a robust cubic form with a faceted rectilinear edge to emphasise its bold graphic nature. Large leafy plants feel right at home.
DESKTOP STORAGE AND ACCESSORIES
Desktop object – or precious items – can be safely housed in X’s angular void. Its simple, bold geometry plays with light and shade to enhance its sense of depth. They can be grouped together or make a solid statement on their own.
You’ll never lose a pen again, thanks to the beautifully crafted Geng Pen Stand. Its cross-shaped cutouts are a functional home for pens while also adding to the graphic nature of the design. Multiple Geng stands can also be stacked together and the design also functions perfectly as a paperweight.
CENTRE PIECES, PLATES AND PLATTERS
As captivating and perfect as a full moon, the Min is available in two sizes and can be used as a tray, a plate or stacked in a simple group.
These strikingly simple trays are all about give and take. Inspired by the manhole covers, they feature the bold graphic pattern of Plus [+] or Minus [-] symbols.
DESIGN OBJECTS, CLOCKS AND HOOKS
The Gou Wall Hooks are too beautiful to cover with a coat, but the function is certainly there if required. Featuring a concealed fixing detail, their playful round and triangular shapes can be grouped together to bring a greater sense of personality to your walls. They are available in two sizes and two colours – red or grey.
Hui Soap Dishes
The Hui collection of vessels can serve a range of functions – from bathroom accessories to minimalist table accessories, such as dishes for salt or pepper. They also serve as beautifully simple design objects all on their own.
Sculpturally striking yet simple, the robust Men Bookends have the form of ancient step pyramids from China or Egypt or South America.
The sands of time are brought to life in the Zhong clock. It features perfectly symmetrical ripples and a quartz movement with metal arms - available in brass, white or black.
