Ciclotte’s Bike Teckell (in fact, Ciclotte’s entire product range) may be the most beautiful set of indoor cycling machines ever made. So, how could we not include it in our best luxury home gym equipment selection?

In a striking homage to Hermès’ roots, the Lucky Horse face displays a horse’s head, horseshoe, and apple, with the occasional cheeky wink from the horse itself. The background is interchangeable, depending on the wearer’s preference, and the hands create a bridle at 10:10.

GIFTS FOR WOMEN WHO LOVE DESIGN IN THEIR HOME
Leaf through this great selection of Coffee table books covering art, fashion and design, aromatic candles, and more!
Zaha Hadid. Complete Works 1979-Today. 2020 Edition
Meet the revolutionary architect Zaha Hadid. Although her work seems impossible to implement, she has been celebrated for years. In the last years of her life, Hadid began to realize her visions. As a result, cities and buildings from Antwerp to Beijing embraced her architectural language.
Even today, they shine with their distinctive designs. The architecture books include numerous photographs, and detailed sketches and show you Hadid’s architectural world. Revolutionary and contemporary buildings, furniture, and interior design in a universe of their own—this is what the architecture books show you. With them, you will experience first-hand the distinctive and unique design of the 21st century.
For an impression of Hadid’s entire work, the Complete Works 1979-2020 Edition, published by Taschen, is especially recommended.
Sana Jardin – Tiger By Her Side
Established by a former aid worker and social justice policy advocate Amy Christensen, Sana Jardin is a fragrance company that aims to go ‘beyond’ the buzzword of sustainability by focussing on economic female empowerment.
Using circular economy principles, the brand enables the women harvesters supplying the raw ingredients for Sana Jardin’s fragrances to become entrepreneurs in their own right, offering skills training, so they can develop and upcycle remaining raw materials to develop and sell their products in their own local economies themselves. On the cusp of 2021, we say this is where sound, future-proof businesses need to be operating.
As for the scents themselves, we believe the label’s most popular, Tiger By Her Side, is the best introduction to the brand. With notes of Moroccan rose, Indonesian patchouli, and Somali incense, the base is amber—the essential oil associated with emotional clarity and inner strength.
Romina Gris – Blue Velvet Box BL11.2
Romina Gris’ decoration designs are intriguing and eye-catching experiments in form, colour, and texture inspired by postmodern architecture and architects such as Michael Graves and Aldo Rossi. Her Skyline collections are made up of unique, individual designs that come together to form cityscapes at once minimal and playful.
As light reflects and shadows form on block colours, the collections look somewhat like three-dimensional illustrations or stop-motion sets that may come to life at any moment.
The Blue Velvet Box BL11.2 is handmade in Barcelona and is part of the Skyline Blue Velvet collection, named for its colour and texture (velvet isn’t actually used). This is one of five pieces in the collection, which includes vases and boxes in different shapes.
Contemporary Houses represents innovative and intimate architecture from China to Chile. It shows you what domestic bliss looks like in contemporary homes. After all, designing private homes is considered an exceptional challenge for architects.
Even if the scope is much smaller than that of complex public projects, the requirements, visions, and preferences of individual personalities must be skilfully brought to the fore.
The goal is an emotional association, which wants to be translated into a practical and constructed reality. Thanks to this architectural book, you will get to know architecture in its most intimate and elementary form.
Project Japan offers you hundreds of fantastic images that tell the story of a country. The architecture book showcases never-before-seen photographs and features. It’s an architecture book that shows what 20th-century Japan is all about.
What makes the architecture book so special? It tells the story of the first non-Western avant-garde architecture, straight out of postwar Tokyo. With rare photographs and numerous interviews, the book reveals the country’s turbulent and fantastic vision of the future.
The architecture book captures in its own unique way how closely the stories of the people are connected to their architecture. New insights and sheer boundless creativity connect the dreams of individuals with the redesign of an entire country.

Laura Itkonen – Sculptural Series
Laura Itkonen works at the intersection of art and design to create bold pieces with a surprising mixture of materials, textures, shapes and colours. Itkonen describes her Sculptural Series as “art with function”. The lidded vessels mostly have a matte surface and are made with food-safe glazing on the inside while the decoration on top is handmade.
The artist makes most of the porcelain she uses herself and sources the majority of her materials in Finland.
Design of the 20th Century
With mass industrialization and the rise of the importance of the designer (in place of the artist and craftsman of the centuries before), the twentieth century saw some of the most revolutionary and decisive moments in the modern age of design.
Arguably, it was the first age of design, and this Bibliotheca Universalis edition from Taschen which features the 20th century’s key movements, moments, and trends is the essential compendium for design aficionados and casual browsers alike. The book features key works from De Stijl, Charles and Ray Eames, Philippe Stark, and Dieter Rams.
