Umbra's new partnership with established and emerging designers rethinks everyday objects.
Long a favourite of ours here at Western Living, Umbra has released a new line, Shift, in partnership with established and emerging designers from across Canada. The line takes everyday household objects—think planters, shoe horns, bottle openers, vases—and reinvents each in unexpected ways. One of my favourites is the line of candleholders that local boy Lukas Peet designed for Shift: slightly off kilter cones are interchangeable with varying-height bases, and come in three colours—marine, teal and yellow. (Teal, FYI, continues to come back strong as the colour of the moment.)Asymmetrical candleholders for Umbra Shift, available in Vancouver at Vancouver Special, vanspecial.com; in Calgary at Kilian, kilian.ca.
