Exhibit Columbus Washington Street Installations

See How 5 Design Galleries Are Transforming This Tiny Midwestern City

The seed for Exhibit Columbus began back in 2014, when designer Jonathan Nesci created an installation of reflecting tables, called 100 Variations, in the sunken courtyard of Columbus's First Christian Church, built by Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen in 1942. "It was essentially to show proof of concept that a designer could make an installation in dialogue with the city," says Nesci. Three years later, the resulting design festival, which runs through November, boasts 18 separate installations.

Salvatore Fiume Italian Ceramicist

Meet the Late Italian Ceramicist Inspiring Today’s Coolest Artists

As trend scouts, avid social media consumers, and Google Image Search addicts, we often happen across works, names, and images that cause our internal YES bells to go off. Starting today, we've decided to give them the airtime they deserve in our new Current Obsession column, the first of which is devoted to Salvatore Fiume — the late Italian artist whose lumpy, curvaceous sculptures seem to somehow be having a resurgence in the work of designers like Sigve Knutson, Thomas Barger, and Carl Emil Jacobsen.

Hay Kitchen Market Frederik Bille Brahe

The New Kitchen Essentials, from Hay and Danish It-Chef Frederik Bille Brahe

The collaboration between Hay and Danish chef Frederik Bille Brahe began, as so many collaborations do, at the furniture fair in Milan a year and a half ago. Charged with outfitting the tables for a Hay pop-up café, Bille Brahe set out with Hay co-founder Mette Hay to scour the Milanese flea markets for flatware, dishes, and serving pieces. The two liked working together — and the hodgepodge effect their vintage-sourced table settings had — so much that Mette called upon Frederik to help curate the pieces in a new line launched this week called Hay Kitchen Market.

A Pastel-Hued Parisian Hotel is Our Newest Design Destination

The headboards should have been a dead giveaway: At the new Hotel Bienvenue in Paris, the asymmetrical, velvet-trimmed, tone-on-tone headboards — mixed with statement-y, wall-hung iron sconces — are the focal point in each room, just as they are in another Parisian boutique hotel we recently featured. Turns out they are owned by the same young hotelier, but designed by two different, equally amazing female talents.

This Colorful Studio Just Launched Their Darkest Collection Yet

Did you know there was a 100% Design South Africa? We didn't! That is, until we caught wind of the work coming out of it by one of our favorite studios, Dokter & Misses (who we first featured way back in 2011). At the show, which ran from August 9-13, the Johannesburg-based duo launched three new projects — two of which represent an aesthetic leap from their typically colorful aesthetic.
