David T’Kint of HBA Dubai shares his five favourite design products and what makes them special

Interior architect and partner at HBA Dubai, David T’Kint, shares his five favourite products and what makes them special.

UP5&6 by B&B Italia 

Designed by Gaetano Pesce, it’s a true icon which has been around for almost 50 years.  Few years ago we got a bright blue version, much to the pleasure of our guests, kids and the cat.

Beoplay A1 by Bang & Olufsen

No one understands everyday objects better than Bang & Olufsen who have designed this speaker, which not only functions well, but also looks great. It’s not a piece of equipment one would want to conceal.

Giant Mug by Spin Ceramics 

Every single unit is handmade, varies in colour and finish, giving it a unique character.   I drink several cups of mint tea every day, so it helps to have a giant size.

Nemo chair by Driade 

There is something unbelievable about this chair designed by Fabio Novembre. Every time someone comes home for the first time, I am asked what it is, because the face is the first visible thing.  It was risky to have a face of that scale at the back of a chair however the facial features are very peaceful.

Fly Candle Fly! by Ingo Maurer 

It’s somewhat difficult to use, which is what makes it so exclusive. However, every creation of the legendary German lighting designer is full of poetry.
