Wallpaper* magazine are celebrating the very best of the design world with the launch of their annual Design Awards. We produced the music for a film that peeks into the world of the Bouroullec Brothers and the concept behind their ‘Serif’ TV. They not only won Designer of the Year, but Best Domestic Design too.
Ruutu, which means diamond or square in Finnish, is a collection of 10 vases available in five sizes and seven colours. When collected and combined, they make small seamless installations where both the strength and the delicate nature of the glass come alive.
The fluidity and vibrant feel of the mouth blown glass creates the delicate character for Ruutu.
Ruutu in stores in January 2015.

Serif is a collection of screens, televisions, we designed for Samsung during the past two years.
Serif is a television that moves away from a preoccupation with ultra-flat screens. Instead, it is an object that can be turned around and manipulated. It can stand anywhere, even on the floor with its own legs. What we were looking for was a solid presence that would sit naturally in various environments, just like an object or a piece of furniture.
In profile, it forms a clear capital “I” shape, its slim body broadening to form a surface like a little shelf at the top.
We also designed the interface inside Serif.
Serif comes in 3 sizes, Serif, Serif Medium, and Serif Mini.
Serif and Serif Medium come with optional feet (that are included in the box).
3 colors are proposed, White, Dark blue and Red.
