We are pleased to announce Mjölk’s newest exhibition in collaboration with Omar Gandhi Architects and Concord Custom Lighting: an exploration of the Hunting Lodge as a modern building, nestled within nature. This structure is a reality for Omar Gandhi, who is in the process of creating such a building—meticulously planning every element of the quiet interior. Together with John Baker from Mjölk, the two spoke about bespoke alterations on existing furnishings, as well as completely new and unique designs to be fabricated for this personal project. The exhibition reveals the fruits of this exploration through the debut of a new dining table and chandelier.
The centre of the family home revolves around the dinner table. Used for more than just eating, it can be a place for preparing food, doing homework, or a home office. Now more than ever, we are asking more from these humble surfaces. Our latest exhibition features a new table designed by Omar Gandhi Architects which aims to highlight the rich beauty of natural wood: a solid top made of three hand-selected wood slabs, complete with fine joinery, drawers, and appointments. The use of contrasting wood species brings one’s attention to the under-counter cutlery drawers, which would be equally suitable for a laptop and stationary.
Accompanying the table is a tree branch-inspired pendant light designed in collaboration between Omar Gandhi Architects and Kate MacNeill from Concord Custom Lighting. The lamp’s bronze arms reach out and bifurcate like a tree in the forest, illuminated by softly folded glass shades that offer a gentle glow during evening meals.
