To celebrate the arrival of Spring, Irish design studio Superfolk will be offering a printmaking demonstration at our Upper Street shop on Saturday 24th March 11am – 1pm.

This is an exceptional opportunity to view the process by which Superfolk’s delicate, textured works of art are created using only water-based inks, a hand-carved block and Japanese washi paper.

Jo Anne Butler of Superfolk will be hand-inking and block-printing Superfolk’s Dandelion print. Combining fresh foliage with citrus-bright colour, this Spring-themed image will be available to purchase on the day, alongside other Superfolk prints inspired by the seaweed and plant life of the Irish coast.

Superfolk Dandelion Print

The Superfolk design studio is based on the rugged west coast of Ireland and was founded in 2009 by artist, designer and architect Jo Anne Butler and designer Gearóid Muldowney.

Superfolk’s range of beautifully pared-back homewares are inspired by outdoor living and are crafted using the finest natural materials and time-honoured techniques. Their work evokes the changing in colours and seasons of the weather, wildlife, and surrounding landscape.

Visit our Upper Street shop to see the pair in action as they mix inks and make prints from their hand-carved blocks. The inks are pushed and pulled, drawing out gentle variations in hues, meaning that no two prints will ever be exactly the same.

Minimalux design and produce accessories for the home and person, characterised by a formal minimalism, employing premium materials and lustrous finishes.

The London-based company was founded in 2009 by designer Mark Holmes and marketing and development director Tamara Caspersz, formerly co-founders of Established & Sons.

Minimalux Bulb Table Lamp in situ

As the name suggests, Minimalux fully embrace precision crafting. Their range may be diverse but each piece is united in its distinctive high-quality finish and elegant simplicity.

Bare metals and leather are hand finished and polished to an exceptional level. No lacquers or treatments are applied after this polishing process, ensuring that the quality of the material is preserved and allows for the attractive natural ageing process.

Their design process is quality-driven, aiming to create understated pieces which are designed to last and bring a note of discernment to everyday objects. The collection ranges from small jewellery pieces and desk accessories to much larger statement lighting.

Minimalus Stem and Bulb Table lamp

The Stem Light (above right) comprises a hand-blown spherical diffuser on a columnar base, available in either brass or chrome. A circular opening in the shade allows for directional light if required.

The Bulb Table Lamp (above left) sits well in tandem. Inspired by the traditional bulb form, this design has a machined brass base and sits directly on a surface.

The Square ring (above) is made of solid brass with a mirror polished finish, engraved with the discreet Minimalux monogram on the inner face. It perfectly pairs with Minimalux’s Square pendant, for maximum geometric effect.

We are pleased to introduce Minimalux to the twentytwentyone family. The collection is available to view and purchase at our Upper Street shop and online.

Rhythm wrapping paper by Esme Winter

With Christmas just over a fortnight away, twentytwentyone’s team reveal the gifts they’d most like to receive this year…

Reika: ”A delicate bracelet inspired by the everyday elastic band, Kei Tominaga’s Elastic Bangle is beautiful and makes me smile too.”
Emelie: ”The best part about Christmas is dressing the tree. This charming decoration matches my favourite Christmas jumper.”
Tony: ”It’s a bit optimistic, but the limited edition U1-D diving watch is something I’ve admired since it first arrived in-store.

Sepideh: “Each Clayhead has a distinctive expression and emotion – often surprising, always thought-provoking.”
Emma: ”Superfolk’s Dillisk seaweed print inspires me to plan a bracing beach-combing walk on Boxing Day.”
Cliff: ”Always in tension, always held in balance – a bit like life! Volta’s tabletop mobile is my personal choice.”

Claire: ”If I can’t have Christmas in Scandinavia this scented candle inspired by the Nordic landscape is the next best thing.”
Victor: ”Warm, cosy, rechargeable and portable, it’s got to be the FollowMe light for me. The answer, my friend, is glowing in the wind.”
James: ”This beautiful paperweight always causes people to ponder the manufacturing process, giving it a pleasing air of mystery.”

Trisha: ”Beautifully packaged, these luxurious Mast chocolate bars are a sweet treat for the festive season.”

Guy: ”A stylish mini greenhouse that promises the perfect start in life for your seedlings. I’m looking forward to green shoots in 2018.”
Charity: ”The One Salt jar is a great addition to any kitchen; I love the contrast between stone and wood, plus its smooth rounded shape.”

Vanessa: ”I’m hoping for Feldspar’s delicate cups in finest bone china.  The perfect way to enjoy a warming winter drink.”
Sophie: ”A Stendig calendar will help me get set for 2018 and could even make forward-planning a positive pleasure.”
Caro: ”I’d like to receive this truly timeless modernist classic. British design to be proud of and top of my list!”

Yasmine: “In the busy festive season I’d love to find Pierre Charpin’s calming and minimal prints under the tree.”
Simon: “Love elephants. This clever design by Yu Matsuda allows for characterful interplay and continual petting.”
Chloe: “A beautiful and functional object that transforms an apple into a tasty treat for feathered garden visitors.”

Jeannie: “Its got to be the Erno throw for me. The luxurious weaving of colours is a warming treat for any wintery day.”
Mette: “I’m hoping for a Memphis Christmas in the form of this exquisite limited edition by Nathalie du Pasquier.”

Meanwhile, a set of animal mask notecards may take the pain out of writing the obligatory thank you cards…
