You want choice and really good design, but sometimes it can make buying simple things take such a long time. Which is why top3 by design is tops. It carries up to three products per category, deemed the best in the world by merit of design.
If entertaining in style is your thing, or you need to inject some pleasure into everyday household tasks, drop in to one of Terri Winter’s two Sydney stores, newly opened in April Melbourne Store, or purchase top3 by design products online. You’ll find contemporary items from Australia and around the world boasting award winning and innovative design.
Here’s our top three:
The Float Lantern by Molo Design – simply the definitive carafe for any household. With a double-walled system and made from quality clear borosilicate glass, the carafe invites you to pick it up whether the contents are icy cold or boiling hot. Iced teas, cocktails or ice-friendly concoctions will equally want to live here.
Danish designer Frank Kerdil turns the humble vase into an artistic statement. The ‘Mondri’ (pictured left), is a three-dimensional tribute to the paintings of Dutch Master Piet Mondrian and can be turned or twisted to reveal three different vase sizes. Convenient when you have different flora shapes and sizes, or equally attractive without. This innovative design is recipient of a 2007 Wallpaper Design Award and the 2006 Design Plus Award.
The Bauhaus chess set and board by Josef Hartwig for Naef delights aesthetically as much as it challenges. An original 1923 design, the geometric pieces visually represent the moves allowed by each chess piece. Take your bishop for example, it can move diagonally, so takes the form of a cross.
If you’re looking to help relatives and friends choose wedding or birthday gifts that get adored (rather than exchanged), the store also opportunely offers a free gift registry service.
Now if only there was a top 3 for the wardrobe, and shoes, and everything else you need.
