Fave Finds: AJ Design Letters Plates & Cups

In the age of aesthetics and Instagram-worthy spaces and places, it’s easy to just see the surface. Never mind if you’ve not read that the food is good, as long as the restaurant looks interesting enough to make you step in. Never mind if you actually need that thing you’re purchasing at the counter, as long as it’s “grammable” or perfect for your feed. Never mind if it actually serves any purpose, as long as it’s pretty enough to keep or flat lay for a post. It’s so easy to favor form and forget function. But in reality, you can always have both!

Take it from Danish designer Arne Jacobsen. This non-compromiser aced the pursuit of aesthetic beauty, marrying ergonomic thought to effortless visual design. Not only was he an architect who made significant buildings in Denmark, Germany, and Great Britain during his time, but he was also an interior, furniture and graphic designer. He would create for purpose while never forgetting to display a sense of glamour. Take his chairs for example, which are products of both stunning quality and functionality.
