In need of a new set of scales? How about trying something else.
Balance is a project by Swiss/Japanese designer Nadine Fumiko Schaub, created as an alternative to cheap and replaceable kitchen appliances. It is made entirely of durable and natural materials such as wood, porcelain, brass and marble stone that has been locally crafted. These scales doe not have a display, instead it relies on human touch to tell if the weights are balanced.

It seems cork is having its moment in fashion and design. It found its way to interior design, being used to create various types of textured walls, tables, chairs, or table decorations. Similarly, fashion designers use this material to give natural structure and character to its pieces. Except for its natural character, cork has another great feature – it is entirely sustainable! The bark from which cork made renews itself and trees do not need to be cut down to harvest it.
Designer Annett Bourquin who is behind ADAISM label takes inspiration from her time spent in Japan and years of traveling the world, creating simple and considered objects calling on minimalist concepts and natural fabrics.
