A PLACE CALLED HOME
Indoor furniture made with love
What is a home? While the dictionary definition may be straightforward and simple, to most people the meaning is intriguingly more complex. Home is not solely about the physicality of a building, space or structure; rather, it represents an emotional sentiment. Home can be the arms of the person you feel closest to, or it can be a community that includes you when you most need it. Home can be the intangible feeling you get in a certain space; a distinct sense of peace and belonging, or a natural inclination to just sit down and ’be’. But even though home may not always be easy to define in just a few words, one thing is certain: you always know it when you find it.
We are fortunate to be let into homes all over the globe, and no matter the type, location or space, our aim is to contribute positively to that special sense of safety and ease, tranquillity and wellbeing. The blomus DNA is all about simple living and easyto- use design that you will want to keep close to and never let go of. We are conscious of the fact that being part of people’s physical surroundings day in and day out comes with a sense of great responsibility.
This season, we are stepping into a brand-new terrain: furniture design. We are happy to be able to launch three new series of chairs, sofas and pouffes that will work as harmonious ensembles in the living room or lounge, or as significant stand-alone pieces in the bedroom, kitchen or hall. And as with any blomus item, these new pieces of furniture are the end result of a lengthy creative process and endless conversations about function, aesthetics and style, along with a relentless effort to get a shape, a material or a seemingly insignificant detail just right. Because it matters who and what you invite into your private world – after all, to most people, home is not just a space. It’s a feeling.

Japanese designer Kazushige Miyake (born 1973) graduated from the design department at Tama Art University in Tokyo and began his career as a product designer in Great Britain before returning to Japan in 1999. In 2005, he established his own design studio.
Today, Miyake Design is synonymous with clean and functional products – from lounge chairs to suitcases – always with the discerning consumer in mind. In his design practice, Miyake favours the simple, the unembellished. He believes that every object has its own particular form; this form is not limited to the object’s physical presence but includes its surrounding aura or atmosphere and its effect on those who use it.
Kazushige Miyake has received a number of prestigious design awards, including the iF Design Award, the Red Dot Design Award and the Good Design Award. He is currently a member of the review committees for both the Good Design Award and the iF Design Award.
