These $50 Posters Are a Serious Score

This week marked the launch of yet another great inexpensive poster series on yet another great art site, created by the multi-disciplinary Danish design studio Atelier CPH. The images were inspired by 70s colors and abstracted faces, and they look like something you'd be psyched to unearth at an antique mall for five times the price. These are only 49 to 89 Euros each, and they come with the cache of a creative duo whose clients include Kinfolk, Ferm Living, and Norm Architects.

Matt Paweski Chose Art Over Design — But We Forgive Him

Years ago, when we first profiled Matt Paweski, we got really excited about his colorful furniture, but alas, it was not to be: Paweski's roots have always been in art, and art is what's occupied his portfolio pretty much ever since. His newest body of work, which went on view today at Herald St. gallery in London, features sculptures any designer could appreciate.

These Colorful Vases Are the Latest Sign that Acrylic Is on the Rise

Remember when we named the California Light and Space art movement one of the top trends to watch in 2017? Well, the evidence just keeps mounting. Seoul design trio Hattern say their new series of two-tone acrylic vases were inspired by the way Impressionist painters tried to capture the effects of changing light quality on nature, but we can't help but see elements of Vasa, Helen Pashgian, and Peter Alexander's work. Is acrylic the new marble?

Sunset-Inspired Color Fades Meet Slabs of Marble In This Stunning Paris Exhibition

The Belgian painter Pieter Vermeersch has been known to fill rooms with soft, colorful gradients that define architectural space in beautifully strange ways, bordering on optical illusion. Both those works and his new canvases, on view now at Galerie Perrotin, dovetail with Vermeersch's professional origins in photography in the way they deal with light and perspective — but the new works physically ground all that ethereal color with panels of heavy marble.

This Studio’s First Collection Is Inspired By Drinking and Fast Cars

You'd think that the new graphics and furniture studio Hey, Porter were based in Monte Carlo or St. Tropez based on the descriptions they've given their first designs: chairs inspired by the "1st running of the 24-Hour Le Mans Automobile Race in France," bar carts named after a "cunning craft cocktail ace from 19th-century London." Alas, their backstory is not quite as dramatic as their influences would suggest — but we're still intrigued.
