Product: Gravel Column

Standout: Eindhoven-based product designer Tijs Gilde blends crushed quartz, a by-product of the mining industry, with epoxy binder to create the strapping and sparkly T-shape table lamp that’s lit by a pair of LEDs and part of a collection that includes a
coordinating round side table.

Product: Harvesting Heat

Standout: Armed with degrees from the Politecnico di Milano and the Design Academy Eindhoven, the designer’s two-part object warms tushes or toes when the ceramic piece is moved from the radiator and slid on top of the cork stool or bench.
