Vito Selma is a devotee of wood from the Philippines, carving geometric, minimalist and undulating forms from what he refers to as his boyhood friend. He approaches his craft through art, seeking to display wood for what it is. The results are fresh and engaging and being only in his mid twenties he’s already much admired – Kish for example where his pieces are available in the Philippines speak of his recent developments and think this is just the start.

In our everlasting search for cool design, we are constantly amazed at how our search, more often that not, brings us back to our home town of Vancouver. Not to toot our own horns here, but this city really seems to be coming into it's own lately when it comes to art + design + DIY culture. 

Our latest search brought us to this masterpiece. A black walnut keyboard tray designed to hold all your wireless Apple accessories. Completely sustainable, these trays are made from North American harvested hardwoods, water-based glue and a food safe oil to bring out the shine!

Check out more at Combine Collective. And needless to say, if you guys ever wanted to join our creative community, you would be more than welcome!

Jo Pole (who is rather progressive with her choice of canvas, to beguiling effect):
