We recently came across the work of new-on-the-scene furniture designer, New York based James Strumpf, working under the studio name of ‘Avoirdupois’ who is about to release his debut collection ‘Tripartite’. What happens when an engineer turns his hand to design?
Paris based photographer, Valentin Fougeray’s refined vision allows him to create surrealistic still life photographs with a rough touch of reality and a contemporary aesthetic. His ability to make the ordinary, such as blacktop and tin foil seem, mystic, exotic and sometimes disorientating - is what has us coming back for more.
What do you get when you have two Canadian brothers coming from a background in construction and industrial manufacturing collaborate on a collection of object design? Dazzling pieces of furniture, that are one of a kind, in colour runs that make us dream! The Toronto based Susan for Susan, existing out of brothers John and Kevin Watts, make exclusive furniture and objects with a focus on industrial materials and manual manufacturing.
You might have heard about Danish designer, Stine Mikkelsen, and her experimental objects. Her geometric structures are tastefully simple and are made of fascinatingly intricate materials. Her priority in design actually lays with the materials, which comes from her background in textile design and the intensive research she does for each collection. Stine experiments with the raw materials drawn from her inspiration and creates the new, this process gives her object a truly natural touch.
From graphic design to the design of murals, carpets, vases and furniture - Alex Proba is multidisciplinary designer who can literally do it all. She has a defining eye for colour use that is charmingly delightful and the stunning avant-garde patterns Alex creates feel new and yet somehow familiar.
We are in love with collectible Object and Set designer Valentina Cameranesi and the world she is able to create. Her work is tender but modern and brings us a refreshing take on classic Italian design. Being influenced by Italy and its abundance of history and design and the appropriation of 1980's and 90's culture makes her work feels very authentic yet contemporary with a sensual twist.
The latest collection of Swedish object designer Jonatan Nilsson, which we fell in love with, exists out of ombre coloured blown glass vases. They are uniquely textured by the wooden molds he uses to shape them in, which echoes an Image of ripples in water. The different forms of the vases come from the rearrangement of the molds; they take on many different shapes and forms and are truly beautifully expressive.
Thoughtful and intelligent in using new techniques and methods on otherwise familiar surfaces, David has grown to be one of the most exciting designers coming from Sweden in the past few years. Check out his futuristic innovations.
The two strong passions that Samantha and Lotte have in common is for an undying thirst for adventure and technology. Lotte makes concessions for Samantha as long as camping turns into ‘Glamping’ and 8 hour hikes and excursions are followed up by a night under 800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and morning facials at the spa.
