A Polish architectural practice Moomoo Architects have completed this single-storey minimalist house located in the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik.

'Cloud' table by Lorens

Anna and Marek Lorens, the duo behind their namesake Warsaw-based architectural and design practice Lorens have recently realised this modular table whose unusual structure – as well as the colour – reminded us of that of a honeycomb.
