Updates from Adam Simha

One of our favorite designers, Adam Simha, precipitated today's trend toward metals in interiors with his minimalist line of steel chairs and tables.

We touted his work as being available at Orange22, (it was) and at LA design spot Twentieth, (it was). These days, though, Simha's wares are available on the west coast at FIVEten Studio in Oakland and in the east at NYC's Designlush.  Being much closer to Simha's Cambridge studio, Designlush carries some of his newest work, including the desk and bench he did for the most recent ICFF.

You can also score Simha's designs, like his latest knife collection, directly through his website, MKS Design.

Just for you, dear readers, we have a sneak peak of the 8'' Chefs and 5.5" Petty knives, and Simha's take on paring down in the kitchen:


The 8" is a significant departure in terms of geometry in that it is quite thin the entire length of the blade - more like Western style knives made by Japanese manufacturers.  It is also a good bit lighter.  The Petty, also thin and light, is the blade to bridge the gap between the Chefs and Paring knives.

I've seen a trend as I visit kitchens toward folks using just enough knife for the job rather than overdoing it - also using fewer knives.

His latest knife collection is also available at Souffle's in Newburyport, Ma; Bliss Home (Newbury St. Boston), and through Vessel (online and in store, as "Simha Knives").
