Canadian furniture designer Thom Fougere

A Canadian Furniture Designer Strikes Out On His Own

At the age of just 24, having just graduated from architecture school, the Winnipeg–based designer Thom Fougere became the creative director of EQ3 (which is something like the Canadian version of Room & Board). Now, just five years later, Fougere has opened up his own shop as well.

Meet Frama, the Studio That’s Reinventing Danish Design

Copenhagen-based Frama is forging a new direction in contemporary Danish design, giving its clean lines and mid-century shapes a new sense of warmth and sophistication. In addition to producing handsomely understated products — some designed by its in-house team, others commissioned from top Nordic talents — the studio has recently begun to branch into interiors, infusing them with character by blending old and new contexts, materials, and influences. Simply stepping into their showroom and studio, which is housed in a centuries-old pharmacy with original woodwork, you can easily see how effortlessly they meld the two together.

Norwegian Designer Kim Thome

Kim Thomé, A Norwegian Designer By Way of London

Think of the London-based, Norwegian designer Kim Thomé’s playful approach to design as a Venn diagram of sorts: On the one side is a fondness for color and geometric pattern play, and on the other is an affinity for reflection and creating optical scenarios that can change at the viewer’s discretion. Where the two overlap is a creative region in which the designer thrives.

The New Wave of Los Angeles Design, On View Now at Our Site Specific LA Show at Austere

When the folks behind the airy Los Angeles design showroom Austere asked us to create an installation in their space, the theme was a no-brainer — we'd showcase the new wave of L.A. design, inviting 11 of our favorite studios to install a selection of their work. The result is Site Specific L.A., which opened on Saturday and runs through February 14, and is like a mini, localized version of our New York show, Sight Unseen OFFSITE.

A Beige Interior By BROOK&LYN That’s the Opposite of Boring

Our website is known for its love of color. Today, though, we're taking a rare moment to celebrate the lack thereof, with a Los Angeles interior project by BROOK&LYN and Akin Creative that proves a rare exception to the "boring beige" maxim. The two studios recently teamed up to outfit the new L.A. outpost of Bassike, an Australian fashion brand known for its high-end line of basics, and took visual inspiration from the label's understated approach.
