Our 30+ Favorite Finds from Design Miami 2018

For Design Miami, the way to announce itself as different from all other design fairs is to, well, embrace the Miami-ness of it all — whether that means an ultra-saturated backdrop (as with Atelier Courbet this year and Demisch Danant last year), an exhibition devoted exclusively to water fountains (Sabine Marcelis x Fendi), or, as with the Chris Wolston light for The Future Perfect at top of this post, an explosion of hyper-colorful flora and fauna.

Six Practically Perfect Floor Lamps from the Italian Architect Behind the Prada Stores

Remember the house tour that published a few years ago in T Magazine, with its Ekstrem chairs, velvet couches, 18th-century wooden toilet, and circular bed covered in fox fur? We've pretty much been obsessed with its owner, the Italian architect Roberto Baciocchi — aka the man who designs all the Prada stores — ever since. His latest works for Nilufar Gallery, which we spotted on Instagram and are publishing here today, only serve to fan the flames: a series of six geometric floor lamps, with materials like brass, slate, iron, and velvet stacked into neat totems.

Camille Walala’s First Hotel Offers a Mellower, More Beachy Version of Memphis

Memphis — the riotously colorful design movement that experienced peak resurgence a few years back — is kind of like the mob: Just when you think you're out, it keeps pulling you back in. In this case, the oft-debated aesthetic popped up earlier this month at a new hotel on the east coast of Mauritius, designed by the London-based color and black-and-white stripes evangelist Camille Walala.

A Furniture Collection in London Made From 3D Printing’s Leftovers

Years ago, when London-based designers Seongil Choi and Fabio Hendry met as students at the Royal College of Art, they were asked to make a stool — which, at the time, they had very little interest in doing. Yet by channeling their common backgrounds in industrial design and their interest in finding uses for low-value, abundant resources, they inadvertently developed an innovative process — called Hot Wire Extensions — by which they have now made many, many a stool, and so much more.
