Oil Pillar Candle
Tom Dixon has created a stylish candle with an iridescent finish, changing color with the light and the angle of view. Popular in the 1990s and the Belle Epoque, when it was often used on glass and ceramics, this iridescent finish has been updated by the designer for his cypress-scented candles.
Carb fans can celebrate the humble spud with the "Tubercule" coat hooks by SCMP Design Office for French design brand Petite Friture. Two real potatoes were specially selected as the star models for these two hooks, available in gray or blue.

"Modernism Rediscovered" by Julius Shulman
Photographer Julius Shulman, who died in 2009, transported a West Coast dream around the world with his pictures of this particular part of the USA. As well as an obvious homage to the architecture of Southern California in the mid 20th century, the pictures capture a lifestyle specific to this time and place. The new edition of "Modernism Rediscovered" features more than 400 architectural treasures from the Shulman archive. Each project and photo has been chosen, out of more than 260,000 documents, by the publisher Benedikt Taschen, a close friend of Shulman.
