Malin & Goetz

Chase and Wonder

For traveling and storage, a wash bag is the perfect go-to pouch. And Chase & Wonder's designs are known for their antique-inspired aesthetic that combines animals with snobbery chic.

L'Abitare

A Milan-based brand known for its collaborations with fabulous designers like MIST-O and Stefania Vasques. The Chiaroscuro ceramic jugs come in various sizes, to layer them and are both functional and minimal.

HAM

Joanna Ham's UK based designs are so tongue-in-cheek. The brand’s monochrome aesthetic is unique, and that adds a serious edge to its playful subject matter.

The Lighthouse, a multi-sensory design and food concept, was launched in January 2017 as the brainchild of the entrepreneurial duo Hashem Montasser and Hany Bassiouny who teamed up with renowned Chef Izu Ani. Location in d3, obviously design is at the root of everything that The Lighthouse develops, from the award-winning cuisine by Chef Izu to the curated playlists by DJ John Hanlidis; and the selling exclusive design objects to that hand-picked furniture and tableware used in the restaurant that any Lighthouse customer can purchase immediately. It’s a 360-degree design destination that tackles all senses and sensibilities.

 

The countdown to the festive season has started and if you’re looking for inspiration on gift giving, The Lighthouse has curated the perfect selection of holiday gifts just for you! The Lighthouse itself was based on a gifting concept when founder Hashem Montasser set out to buy a gift for a friend who was turning 40. The best gift would be minimal and practical, and made out of high-quality materials durable for everyday use.

 

Nearly a year since its launch in d3’s Design Quarter, The Lighthouse catalogue of brands has increased to feature more international as well as regional designers focusing on tabletop, home accessories, books and children’s accessories.The Lighthouse Creative Director Layla Aldabbagh used her keen editorial eye to select her top five picks that make the ideal holiday gift for those with discerning taste.
