Dezeen’s Christmas gift guide 2019: interior designers

A David Chipperfield-designed candle and a one-handed watch are among our selection of 15 gifts for interior designers this holiday season.


Holocene N0.2 by David Chipperfield

Architect David Chipperfield designed this brass oil lamp, featuring two curved edges that partially obscure the flame, for Swedish lighting brand Wästberg.

The lamp forms part of the company’s Holocene collection, which takes its name from the geological epoch. The era provided Wästberg with the idea to create a fire-based lighting series.

Punkt Alarm Clock by Jasper Morrison

Designer Jasper Morrison teamed up with Swiss technology brand Punkt to create this alarm clock so it could be used in place of mobile phones, and help reduce technology in the bedroom.

Sin Pistols by Sancal

Break all the rules with the Sin Pistols, which Sancal says is “neither a bag or a backpack, just both of them at the same”.

A pair of straps loop over the wearer’s head and shoulders to leave two pockets to rest just underneath the armpits. The holders are the right size for small items, like keys, a mobile phone and sunglasses.
