You may closely associate Tolix with its classic chairs but there are other treats to be discovered in the company's archive too, such as the 55 Table, now available from Folklore.
With its clean lines and simple shape, Tatsuo Kuroda's knot chair looks like it could have been designed 60 years ago. In fact, it's a twenty-first century classic.
Admittedly, picnics and camping are probably pretty far from our minds as we see out the last days of winter, but it is good to plan ahead and this set of Folklore Enamel Tableware is ideal for stylish outdoor dining.
The collection consists of a black teapot/coffeepot, a pink and black mug and plates in a choice of pink or black. They are all decorated with a traditional folkloric pattern of flowers and birds.
The mug costs £5.95, plates £8.95 and the pot £14.95, from Colloco.
