We like Julia Atkinson of Studio Home. The New Zealand-based design blog curates some of this country and Australia's most pleasing-to-the-eye designs, and a visit to the website always ensures a visually fun time.
It's evident this Kiwi lady appreciates the creative talent behind each design, so we weren't too surprised when she told us of her newly-launched project, TEAM.WORK.
TEAM.WORK is a collaborative series, of which Julia explains as, "Studio Home working together with exciting down under brands, to have some fun and experiment with designing and producing product.
"[This, while] keeping the Studio Home reader in mind."
First up is a collaboration with Auckland designers Mike Grobelny and Nikolai Sorenson of Trestle Union. The trio set out to produce "something new and different", adding to the range of Trestle Union's aesthetically clean and modern trestle tables.
The result is a collection of metal wire pot plant stands available in three heights and three colourways – glossy black, clear coated steel, and white – with raw industrial finish, and hexagonal ring at the top to support tapered pots of many shapes and sizes. A central support allows for slimmer pots or a drip tray.
The collection is available from the Trestle Union website.

Says Julia: "TEAM.WORK marks the specific move by Studio Home to innovate and take the sites involvement with New Zealand and Australian creative business up a notch."
We can't wait to see more.
