Magna ceramic knife magnets are one of Kähler’s new designs for your kitchen this autumn. Magna ceramic magnets will add charm to larger kitchens with clean lines, or underline the creativity and personal style of smaller, cosier kitchens. By mixing the delicate pastel shades you can create a stylish and subtle look in your kitchen. The knife magnets serves as a decorative purpose by themselves.
With its elegant and functional magnetic knife holders, Magna, Kähler is launching yet another attractive kitchen utility item, and thereby continuing its more than 100-year-old tradition of innovative thinking in functional ceramic design.
The designers behind the Magna ceramic magnets, Mette Bache and Barbara Bendix Becker, explain the design philosophy: “The two basic materials, steel and clay, come together in Magna. The delicate, softshades of the magnets match the hard, shiny steel of the knives, and these soft and hard elementsproduce a beautiful combination of materials.”

Muuto added two more items to their collection; Airy side table designed by Cecilie Manz has the well-known pared down designs and inherent gentleness which is typical for her designs. The Fiber chair designed by Iskos-Berlin, takes the familiar archetype of the tub chair and reduces it to its simplest form and offers lots of versatility.
Coffee table Airy by Cecilie Manz comes in different shapes and sizes. There are three different sizes and a half size table, all made out of polished plywood and a light soldered iron frame.
Cecilie Manz says; “The idea behind Airy was to create a coffee table that did not scream but still was not afraid to speak. The result is a table series that masters the fine balance between being light and airy, and at the same time having plenty of personality and individuality.
