Men at Work


Today we are visiting the exhibitor Men at Work at Formex fair a few weeks ago. Men at Work is a design company based in Stockholm which is a distributor for brands such as Chilewich and Rangthong, but also does its own design with products like candlestick holders, trays, trivets and much more.


Above you see the candlestick holder Freja which comes in a range of colors and versions. Giving you the chance to add lots of color to your home. Or why not add a trivet to protect your table from those hot pots. My favorite is Eken or Stockholm Skyline. The designs are by the owner Dick Lundgren.


Another way to protect your table is by using placemats. In my home growing up, we always had placemats under the plate. We had them in different shapes, colors and materials. Chilewich has high quality placemats in fun colors which makes it easy to change the table setting everyday or for a party. Would look great with their placemats in silver or gold for New Years for example when that day comes. Moreover, you can also find table runners and floormats in equally exciting colors.


Rangthong is another fantastic brand. The handcrafted stainless steel flatware, plates and other products are each made individually by hand in Thailand. Rangthong has a permanent place at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
