Mjölk is a design gallery featuring work from Scandinavia and Japan, located in Toronto, Canada. Mjölk (which means “milk” and is pronounced Mi-yelk) is the branchild of curators John Baker and Juli Daoust, who strive for an aesthetic that is “pure, honest, and essential.”
I completely adore the stripped-clean minimalism of their pieces, with the beautiful lines and calming focus on functionality and ease of use.
Here is what they say about their store:
“Mjölk is both a gallery who exhibits work by both arists and artisans from Scandianvia and Japan, and also a lifestyle store; we look to our everyday life to find inspiration for the products we carry. Our smaller products can be used without thought, or quietly admired. In our eyes just the simple satisfaction of functionality and durability, is all you need for a successful product, but when you can derive beauty from the uttermost simplistic tools, then you have something special.”
