â€œYouâ€™ll love thisâ€ blog is not just about designers, it is also about people, projects, culture, architecture and everything else in between which inspires and reflects Imbyouâ€™s beliefs and design thinking. Yes yes, about food too (the essence of life!)
In my quest for pure and timeless designs, universe handed me Mjolk on a plate. Now if there was to be a reflection of Imbyouâ€™s design philosophy (to a large extent I would say), you will find it in Mjolk.
Â Say Mi-yelk is how the website describes it. I had to browse the entire website after that. End to end!
A store based inÂ Toronto, the gallery makes its home in a white Victorian building with a modern interior by local architect firm Studio Junction. MjÃ¶lk is both a gallery which exhibits work by both arists and artisans from Scandianvia and Japan, and also a lifestyle store.
MjÃ¶lk (Swedish for milk), was started in 2009 by husband and wife team John and Juli Baker
In their words: â€œ we look to our everyday life to find inspiration for the products we carry. Our smaller products can be used without thought, or quietly admired. In our eyes just the simple satisfaction of functionality and durability, is all you need for a successful product, but when you can derive beauty from the uttermost simplistic tools, then you have something specialâ€.
I couldnâ€™t agree more.
They have beautifully summed up their design ethos: MjÃ¶lkÂ is pure, honest, and essential
Their design philosophy is so deeply rooted in their psyche that it reflects in their daily lives too.Here is a store which showcases the most sublime products, which revolves around usablity without conforming to time or trend. You will be getting more of Mjolk at “You’ll love this” regularly.
Take a look for yourselves and share your thoughts.
