MAIL by NHO delivers news and views tailored to those who share our value of design. Published to a gentle schedule, you’ll only hear from us when we have something of note to share.
At NHO, we are undoubtedly brand loyalists. When we love a brand, we really love a brand. One such example is Vitsœ, the British manufacturer of furniture designed by the great Dieter Rams. Iconic furniture aside, what we love about Vitsœ is its brand values and how they are communicated across all levels of the business. Centred around Rams’ “good design” ideology, the business promotes a living better with less philosophy that is counter-intuitive in the consumerism age. It takes a certain confidence to actively discourage rampant consumption, but that’s exactly what the business does. The ethos is explored in depth via the brand’s website and a recent essay on “an emotionally sustainable purchase”. This visionary approach, coupled with Rams’ superb designs and a one-to-one sales approach that is unmatched in the industry makes it a brand for the ages. Photography courtesy of Dezeen.
