Doris Darling

Nomen est omen: The Super Strong Lamp by Viennese Doris Zaiser-Grossauer not only illuminates a room, but sparks attention with its fierce design. Admittedly, the unique look, which started out as an art piece, is not for everyone. Its fans, however, have fallen in love with its design and sheer versatility, easily installable on the floor, sideboards or suspended from the ceiling. On top of that, Doris Darling values traditional craftsmanship, using only experienced glassblowers and girdle makers for manufacture. Select the colors of globe, bar and cable and soon your home will shine resplendent.

Finding the perfect position when lounging around can be a struggle. But thanks to the portable headrest by Sava, the days of sore necks, fighting for the last free canvas chair or scrunching up beach towels into pillows are over. This compact head support, designed by Saskja Heinrich and Valeria Schwägerl, will become essential for trips to the beach. You can even express your individuality by selecting your own fabric for a custom-made Sava. Best of all, Sava supports social causes by partnering with workplaces who hire the disadvantaged in Regensburg and Vienna.

If all you associate with cork is wine bottles and pinboards, then it’s high time to browse the collection of accessory label Eve & Adis. Its founders, Eva-Maria Scheyer and Adis Mataruga, use organic and unique materials exclusively, creating bags, jewelry, key chains and phone cases out of cork, ecologically sourced leather and piñatex (a leather-like textile made from pineapple fibers). The south German designers are convinced that “the simplest sustainable way is always the best,” which certainly shows in the sleek style and subtle colors of their handcrafted goods.
As you can see, cork has left wine cellars to venture into the world of fashion.
