The Best Thing We Saw in Milan Today, Day 4

We’ve never seen any shame in a finish fetish, and at this week’s Milan fair the Amsterdam-based studio Odd Matter did the art movement proud with a project called Guise. Developed for a brand new contemporary/experimental arm of Nilufar Gallery called Far — which also had its official launch this week — Guise consists of three benches and a console made from carved foam that’s been coated in either iridescent car lacquer, or a classical faux-marble painting technique called Scagliola.

The Best Thing We Saw in Milan Today, Day 3

In the 5Vie district, in an old flat that's been used for a couple of years as an exhibition space, we found the show Unsighted, curated by our friend Nicolas Bellevance-LeCompte of Carwan Gallery. For the brief he asked eight designers to create a collection not knowing who, what, or where it was bound for; our favorite of the collections was by a young designer named Roberto Sironi, who created Ruins, a series of benches, stools, mirrors and tables that juxtapose elements of the classical and industrial eras.

Sculptural Minimalism and Negative Space in a New Collection of Danish Design

For her latest collection, Danish designer Maria Bruun teamed up with fellow Royal ​D​anish ​A​cademy of ​D​esign alum Pernille Andersen, a set designer with a strong background in photography. Both designers came at the collaboration with a desire to strip everything down to a minimum and focus on the idea of “non-space."

Bower by photographer Charlie Schuck

In New Photos by Charlie Schuck, Bower’s Work Has Never Looked Better

There's a definitive look to Charlie Schuck's photography — sumptuous curtains, graphic shadows, perfectly brushed carpets, mirrored surfaces, and richly painted walls — and perhaps no studio's work is better suited to that look than Bower. So when we heard Bower's brand-new website was up and running — with brand-new imagery taken by Schuck — we immediately reached out to publish the incredible results.

A New Furniture Collection That Merges Two Top Design Trends

Somewhere around 2015, two major design trends emerged that — from time to time — have also subsequently converged. The first is something we call "warm minimalism," referring to the blonde wood / muted pastels / brass / simple shapes combo that's still going strong; the second is the Dimore Studio brand of understated glamour that skews slightly more classic, in richer textures and tones. When they're combined, you get work like Robert Sukrachand's newest collection, debuting today at the AD Design show.

10 Things We Loved at the 2018 Collective Design Fair

There were, to say the least, a lot of changes at Collective Design this year — the largest, of course, being the week in which it was held. But ironically, the year that Collective broke from NYCxDesign's May calendar and moved to coincide with the Armory, Independent, and NADA, is the year it featured the most instances of contemporary furniture yet.

Fiberglass, Corian, Rubber, and Resin: Welcome to the Materials-Obsessed World of Wentrcek/Zebulon

Brooklyn design duo Kristen Wentrcek and Andrew Zebulon began making work together six years ago as Wintercheck Factory. And while their moniker has recently changed, their work has always derived its impact from the tension between the what and the why — the “what” being a material language that enforces approachability, and the “why” embedded in how it all comes together to elevate the mundane.
