when objects work

'When Objects Work' is the vision of its director Béatrice de Lafontaine. The Belgian company produces and distributes exclusive objects designed by leading designers and architects whose work shares a preoccupation with simple forms, immaculate function and a timeless idiom.

William Morris famously observed that you should ‘have nothing in your house which you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful’. From its first collection shown at the Milan Furniture Fair in 2001, when objects work has pursued the principle that everyday objects may both useful and beautiful, commissioning designers to explore the theme of decorative art as superlative domestic equipment in the fullest and most challenging ways possible and developing innovative manufacturing solutions where necessary. Most of the pieces are still made by hand. www.whenobjectswork.be
