Another Country, in collaboration with Ekkist are proud to present their inaugural collaborative furniture collection ‘Designs for the Natural Home’, demonstrating how design can be used to improve well-being.
The collection is inspired by Ekkist’s ‘Ori House’, the UK’s first house typology designed specifically to benefit the health and well-being of the building’s occupants, based on the innovative WELL Building Standard™.
The result is a collection of furniture designed to contribute to better indoor air quality, mindfulness through texture and craftsmanship, and the incorporation of natural elements through biophilic design.
In recognition of its distinctiveness and design values, the Sofa Bed has been awarded a 2018 Design Guild Mark as well the Jonathan Hindle Prize, awarded to the most outstanding Design Guild Mark winner, and the Ori Mirror has been recognised with a Wallpaper* Design Award.
The Ori Wall Mirror is designed in response to Ekkist's Well-being principles. A healthy home environment is light filled and this mirror is hinged to reflect light around the room as well as providing a generous bedroom or hallway mirror. Made using Solid Ash and glass mirror, it's simple brass hinges add a decorative but at the same time functional detail.
