The beautiful Domestic Collectables by Grace Souky caught SEEN’s magpie eye as soon as she saw them. Exquisitely designed and made, Grace’s bowls, utensils and containers in particular stood out; sleek and calm in their perfection, their quiet minimalism and bold colours making them thoughtful additions to any style of home. The combination of materials, the copper and wood especially, are stunning.



Grace Souky is a Venezuelan-born, London-based product and furniture designer with a flair for strong colours and simple forms. She is currently living and developing new designs under her label Grace Souky in her studio in East London. Her signature style reveals a love for detail, colour and geometry.

From the beautiful yet disquieting pop surrealist art that is the passion of gallery director Alexandra Mazzanti, to the welcoming gallery itself complete …
