The Right Chord

The Danish design brand WON is expanding its collection once again and now adds a minimalistic shelf called CHORD—a decorative but functional wall shelf unit made of coated steel. Spaces of different sizes arise by vertical, continuous rods and thin boards of varying lengths. Like in a treasure box, every object finds a suitable place. The arrangement of the boards creates a graphic melody, which gives the shelf an interesting and slender appearance. The shelf can be rotated and easily mounted in two directions on the wall. There can be added decorative and personal elements to CHORD whether installed in the living room, the bedroom, in the hallway or the bathroom. CHORD gives an edge to the decor and serves as a mini gallery of the finest bottles of perfume, small works of art or memorable valuables. WON is an independent brand established by the furniture manufacturer Wendelbo Interiors. Visit for more info.

New Wheelchair Travel Series

“10 days. 10 friends. 1 city. 1 wheelchair.” This opening line from the 10 Days in Saigon trailer lays out the concept for a new video series by Muui—a Seoul-based social venture focused on disability and accessibility. The 10-week web series follows a rotating cast of local residents traveling around Ho Chi Minh City with series creators Kunho Kim (producer) and Samuel R. Mendez (director).

Each day consists of a few episodes where guest hosts tells the audience about their first impressions/memories of popular Saigon sites. The episodes end with a breakdown of wheelchair accessibility (or not) of the sites. “I really want to recommend people in wheelchairs to explore Saigon. And I want to show them it is possible to get around Saigon in a wheelchair,” says Kim.

The series is being released on Muui’s YouTube and Facebook accounts and runs through the end of March.
