Function and beauty are almost the same thing or, at least, one comes holding hands with the other. This is one of the foundations of Mjölk
, a design gallery set in Toronto that works internationally and produces locally since 2009. Mjölk represents works by designers from Japan and Scandinavia, given their sense of balance between construction and nature. Their aim is to offer timeless objects that truly cooperate with users in a daily basis. Mjölk focuses on the longevity of the objects they sell as well as on usefulness and treated aesthetics. John Baker, co-owner of Mjölk together with Juli Baker, answered our questions, except for the first one: photographer Blaise Misiek
and stylist Chad Burton, who share with us exclusively the pictures accompanying the interview, told us about their collaboration with the design gallery.
