House of Marley now in the Philippines
Posted on

The House of Marley, an ecologically-friendly line of audio gear, inspired by the passion and vision of the late reggae superstar Bob Marley, recently launched in the Philippines at Polilya bar in Poblacion, Makati.
House of Marley was born of the Marley family’s desire to bring to life Bob’s vision of universal love, music and respect for nature through socially responsible materials and sustainably crafted products.

The products are sourced from earth-friendly materials such as recyclable aluminum, bamboo, FSC-certified wood.
Named after some of Bob Marley’s popular anthems, the designs are rooted in simplicity and ecological balance. Wood, rubber, leather, metal and ceramic come together in sleek designs plus high-quality sound.

Guava Sketches opens at Greenbelt 3
Posted on

Entering the newly opened Guava Sketches at the ground floor of Greenbelt 3 will remind you immediately of a Danish lifestyle store.
Owned by sisters Jennifer and Joan Cantemprante, the name Guava Sketches was derived from Jennifer’s fond memories of the guava tree and Miles Davis’s Flamenco Sketches.

Guava Sketches started out as a Singapore-based online store. They would do occasional pop-ups before finally opening their standalone store at Greenbelt 3.
Guava Sketches carries T-shirts from IDEA Publication, stationery from House Doctor and Octaevo, furniture from House Doctor and Brdr. Krüger, magazines from IDEA Publication and Plethora, tableware from Jimbobart and Gustavsberg, prints from OLLE Eksell and so many others.

The Brdr. Kruger Bolling Tray Table (starts from Php 35,580) was created in 1963, by Danish architect Hans Bølling. The two reversible trays can be flipped over to add colour contrast and personality to suit your space. The wooden frame can also be folded flat and reopened without the use of tools as it is joined by wooden spikes.

I love the House Doctor Mix Drawer (Php 27,451), which has retractable wheels.
House Doctor The company, which is run by siblings Rikke Juhl Jensen, Gitte Juhl Capel and Klaus Juhl Pedersen, was born in 2001 in Denmark.

IDEA Publication “Drugs” Bag (Php 3,380) is probably not the best way to make a statement these days but I like it for its humor, simplicity and function.

Right now, Guava Sketches is the only store that carries tableware by Jimbobart. James Ward creates a range of ceramics and illustrations centering on his expressive animal drawings.
Joan explained that the plates and cups used to be individually hand-painted until the demand grew. The designs are now painted using a machine but still in small quantities.

Guava Sketches also carries IFJ, Mizu-Mizu, a Japanese brand of tableware. The designs are very modern and fresh although he elegant bluish white and light caramel brown hues are reminiscent of antique China.

There are Acroliths and centrepieces from Giacomo Alessi Ceramics, a renowned pottery brand from Caltagirone in Italy.

From Kühn Keramik of Berlin, Guava Sketches has bottle stoppers and wall hangers.
