Intuition guides all of us in many different ways, but few have the sort that can transform a simple spot to sit into an outright masterpiece. Granted, most of us aren't the Berlin-based Danish architect Sigurd Larsen. His uncanny talent is front and center at Formel A, a shop showcasing the Viking-esque boldness evident in each piece of furniture he designs. Larsen's minimalist approach makes room for a grand sense of movement in each chair, table and even, improbably, paperweight. Whether you're a design junkie or just appreciate sophisticated surroundings, if your intuition leads you to Formel A, you'd be smart to follow it there.
