Black + Blum is an collaboration Anglo-Swiss partnership founded in 1998 and based in London, one of the capitals of European Design. It creates functional products able to entertain and fascinate. An original Black + Blum item is always born from the double input deriving from the personalities of Dan and Martin.

Black + Blum is a company that works in the design sector since 1998, when its two founders, Dan Black and Martin Blum, decided to open a consulting firm after studying together industrial design at the University of Newcastle. Over the years, they began to design the first projects for their own brand: the result are the first 2,000 lambs of the company. Soon after the lamps came a long line of home objects. At the basis of Black + Blum's production there is the concept that design objects must be functional but also very nice and pleasant; and also, each one of their items must be easily identifiable. And in fact, Black + Blum objects have a particular sign which makes it possible to recognize them at a first glance. Today the company is based in London, within the Oxo Tower, where the two designers and those working in their study can take inspiration from the dozens of creative minds working in this original place. The objects produced by Black + Blum are numerous, but they all maintain a particular and very funny character. The most famous of is James the Doorman: it is a peculiar doorstop that looks like a tiny colourful little man made of synthetic rubber that sustain the door. From the same idea was born also James the Bookend: it's the same little man, this time bothering to hold books. These two objects are the real icons of Black + Blum's work, since they have all the typical features of all the creations by these brilliant designers. Today the Black + Blum collection contains almost exclusively items like the two James, usually shelves, coat hangers, and mirrors. All the objects are very decorative and funny, but also resistant thanks to a constant research of good materials that allow the pieces to last over time without excessive costs. Basically, Black + Bloom's philosophy results in useful, beautiful, durable and not too expensive design objects made to improve everyday life.
