THE SHOP

Opening in 2008, Atomic is a boutique specializing in authentic Mid-Century Art & Design.

We offer our clients a well curated collection of unique furniture, art, lighting, modernist glass, jewellery and objects from the early 1960’s through to the mid 80’s.

Colour, condition and functionality within a small space are key with all designs presented.

All items have been restored in our workshop to their former glory.

Original pieces by notable 20th century designers include Pierre Paulin, Verner Panton, Charles and Ray Eames, Ingo Maurer, Guzzini, Kartell, George Nelson, Achille and Pier Castiglioni, Flavio Poli & Gerrit Rietveld.
