5 Valentine’s Day gifts for designers and architects (in love)


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I’ve chosen some design gifts for him and for her. Obviously my indications are above all for designers and architects. Yes, because designers and architects (both in the female and the male version) are special professionals. Gifts for designers and architects must always take into account form and function, aesthetics and structural appearance. Not to mention the quality of the materials: never shoddy products – beware! – never shoddy products for architects and designers. Those that I have selected for you on this list are gifts with a strong romantic component, both in their intrinsic design and colors. Tons of hearts are coming, let’s get started?

These are 5 Valentine’s Day gifts for architects and designers (in love) or to fall in love with.

1. Heart Led Lamp by Seletti

Love is a word of light, written by a hand of light, on a page of light.

Is the Heart Led Lamp a lamp-heart? Yes, but not only! It’s a wall lamp-heart with the function of a painting, with clear references to pop art. It’s in LED and it was designed by Studio Job, a Belgian creative and eccentric studio. Seletti’s Heart Lamp is a special edition launched just for Valentine’s Day 2019. A romantic and audacious touch involving lighting and wall decor.

2. “Ho bisogno di Tè” by Andrea Antoni

Love is for everyone, but each expresses it in its own way.

So if you’re in love but not overly romantic and if you always weigh the words helping you with irony, the mug “Ho bisogno di Té” (I need Té, in English) is for you (or your half). It has the right irreverence and the right amount of font-obsession so dear to graphics and designers.

3. Kiss gold by Casa Bugatti

“A romantic kiss that unites two different styles, like in the best love stories”

Do you already have very high blood sugar? Well! I mean, bad! But you and your partner can always improve your clinical picture by eating lots of nuts. Nuts that you will open together during a romantic day thanks to the nutcracker Kiss gold designed by Teseo Berghella.

4. Clizia Table by Slamp

Thanks for the flowers

…especially if they are design flowers! The Clizia lamp reminds nature, enclosed in a bouquet of bright flowers. It’s available in several colors and its collection also includes suspension, wall and floor versions. Its designer is Adriano Rachele.

5. Love Heart Pillow by Vitra

Too much love.

With icons you are never wrong. And Vitra knows it well. Its pillow is a must, never goes out of fashion. Then, let’s face it, the pillow is a true symbol of love, an intense declaration of love for those who give it.
