As winter well and truly settles in we are brought to a crossroad of ways to come out the other side unscathed.
In today's chaos we at Prae constantly find ourselves treasuring the simple things that hold meaningful value to our lives, and we are forever inspired by those who see beyond a single product and rather
how they intend it to streamline one or all aspects of life.
Our store manager Courtney talks us through the minimalist, Prae-approved Australian brand, Addition Studios. If you've been looking for ways to incorporate a simplistic lifestyle into your home, Addition Studios will have you converted to minimalism in no time.
We invite you to read up on all elements of the brand from the creative director's vision to design intent, alongside a handpicked assortment of products curated for your home and self-care routine.
About the maker:
You may have heard of Ryan Hanrahan- not only because he is the genius behind the label Addition Studios, but as the name suggests, from Ryans hand crafted Travertine Void incense burners (my personal favourite) to his meticulously designed minimalist Brass pieces sit at the forefront of Australian Design.
With a company Ethos that reads ‘Creating a Modern Utopia’ you'd be hard pressed to not find his work of synthesizing popular culture through the prism of utility- impressive.
A take from the Addition Studios own journal- Ryan Hanrahan studied Fine Arts at University and gradually side stepped through the Graphic Arts toward Furniture and Object design. Envisioning a life where refined design, a balanced lifestyle and a clear mind all come together seamlessly.
The Cubic Oil Burner is made from limestone featuring all brass details and has a solid geometric form, we would describe it as the brutalist design meets the Greek Islands. This designer oil burner is carved from a solid piece of stone. Designed with a minimal aesthetic the Asteroid Oil Burner is a brass tea light holder which acts as a subtle diffuser of essential oil.
Bath Soak - Native White Ochre & Zeolite clay, with Kunzea and Fragonia Essential Oils.
A relaxing and enlightening detox experience.
Eye Pad- A scented all natural eye pillow to place on eyes after meditation, when going to sleep or after yoga to help with relaxation. Made from all natural ingredients.
Assorted Essential Oils - blends to suit all your emotional needs. Basic symbols have been used to describe the scent’s effect on the users emotional wellbeing. We've been diffusing the ever so soothing Eucalyptus and Acacia essential oil in our office this week for improved cognitive function.
