History of Black & Blum  

After meeting while studying Industrial Design at Northumbria University, Dan Black and Martin Blum quickly combined their knowledge to found Black & Blum, initially starting the company as a consultancy, but soon taking on more creative pursuits and designing their own products in house. Their designs ranged from lighting and household products, that merged minimalistic vibes with striking finishes.

Products from Black & Blum  

Taking on unconventional, yet traditional ideas, Black & Blum Water Bottle managed to find a way to make water even healthier, creating a handy glass water bottle that contains a stick of Binchotan charcoal. This boosts the mineral capacity of the water, but also gives it a cleaner, fuller taste. There’s also more conventional designs such as the thermo flask, complete with a functional leather strap, and the foldable, secure Black & Blum lunch box. If you’re looking for designs that stay clear of the ordinary, but that don’t replace practicality with individuality, then look no further than Black & Blum.
