A Belgian Designer in Morocco On What It’s Like to Run a Global Brand Via Instagram

Working from the center of a medina in Marrakech might not seem like the most straightforward way to achieve international acclaim, but with an aesthetic that walks right up to an Anthro catalog, then takes a sharp left toward Picasso, Laurence Leenaert of LRNCE has done just that. We caught up with Leenaert in her showroom-cum-studio to find out what it's like to run a global brand via Instagram, how she stays inspired, and why she can’t imagine being anywhere else.

Bauhaus-inspired housewares by Orphan Work

Brutalist- and Bauhaus-Inspired Housewares and Lighting From the Duo Behind Material Lust

Christian Swafford and Lauren Larson, the creative couple behind Material Lust, introduced their sister brand Orphan Work humbly enough, with a soft launch last year that had us wondering what, exactly, the brand even was. But since its debut, the label has evolved beyond its origins as “an exploration of orphaned material” and developed into a full-fledged brand: lighting, accessories, and what they call “monuments for your tabletop,” inspired at turns by Bauhaus and Brutalism, but mainly by the Vienna Secession.

Painting and Sculpture Make Easy — If Admittedly Strange — Bedfellows in a New Exhibition

Familiars — Fisher Parrish gallery's new exhibition of work by the Los Angeles painter Aaron Elvis Jupin and Rhode Island-based sculptor Zach Martin — makes easy, if admittedly still strange, bedfellows of the pair’s divergent mediums. The duo’s fascination with interiority sets the stage for a glimpse into some uncertain future, their works in harmony creating a sense of unease that speaks to a broader darkness ahead. The pieces in Familiars are subconscious, the artists asking us as much as themselves what will happen next.
