Principal and founder of Stickman Tribe shares his five favourite objects and why they are special to him.

The Turntable by Fern and Roby

This monumental record player has dynamic balancing and high-fidelity playback with aesthetics that speak volumes. The 32kg cast iron plinth and 16kg bronze platter is genius.

Chieftan Chair 1949 by Finn Juhl

An inspirational Scandinavian classic where the play on materials and form is self-explanatory.

Mugr by HMM Collection

A tactile play with materials in a robust texture, it is a day-to-day design with purpose. It’s the perfect way to start the day with strong coffee and a strong grip.

The Wire Collection by Overgaard & Dyrman

The collection finds inspiration in traditional saddle making and metal work, and explores the synergy and contrast between high quality materials. It reflects honesty of materials and the balance between functionality, ergonomics and manufacturing. A genuine piece that flaunts the details of its construction. I doff my hat to Overgaard and Dyrman.

Floral surfboard by Boom Art

As surprising as it may seem, I’m an Aussie who is passionate about surfing. I particularly love Boom Art’s work and appreciate the retro and bold illustrations they use to combine art and design.
