Beyond Object

Beyond Object is a design-led brand focusing on desktop objects and home accessories.
They believe functional objects can be designed and crafted as art. You might find yourself a bit lost seeing their collection for the first time, wondering what are the objects made for. It won’t take long until you figure it out, and that magic moment of surprise reveals the true essence of their design.

In their first exhibition in Salone del Mobile 2013, they were awarded with the grand prize – Design Report Award with a experimential lighting project called Ripple.
They soon license the design to a renowed crystal brand call J.&L. Lobmeyr. And in 2014 they established their own design label “Beyond Object” with the belief that daily objects can be crafted as functional sculptures.

Cantili is a tape dispenser with a pared-down, sculptural form abstracted from the everyday tape dispenser.

LINO – LETTER OPENER

Lino is a structured letter knife. The solid knife has been reduced into merely its outline – the only remaining essentiality that defines this object as a knife.

“It is like a sketching in the space, with a surprisingly comfort grip and sharp blade. We draw a simple outline of a knife, reducing the decorative parts and bring that shape into three-dimensional space, that was the starting point of Lino.” said the studio.

Handmade in stainless steel, the thin, black outline draws a three-dimensional shape in space, creating a void structure that also fulfils the purpose of a proper letter knife. Providing a solid grip, Lino is not only a functional object, but also an art piece that complements your workspace. Lino comes in matt silver finish and matt black finish with Teflon coating.
