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.

Four Designers Just Got Together to Form a Norwegian Superbrand

Remember Temple of the Dog? The Traveling Wilburys? Cream? In music, the idea of a supergroup — in which several successful solo musicians band together to form a new group — is a familiar one. In design, it's less so — and yet that's exactly what four Norwegian designers have done with their new brand A Part, which launched earlier this week.

Tour the Chic, Vintage-Filled Silverlake Home of an Up-and-Coming L.A. Interior Designer

The mid-century Silverlake home that Tiffany Howell shares with her husband and son gave the interior designer and Night Palm owner 1,500 square feet in which to fully realize pet ideas like a "postmodern Golden Girls" bedroom, making it the perfect second installation in our Creative Women at Home collaboration with Sonos. We’ve teamed up with the smart speaker brand for a storytelling series in which we’re visiting the homes of four influential women to find out how they live, work, relax, and listen.

These Psychedelic, Rainbow-Colored Landscape Photos Make a Subtle Political Statement

You might not think of a series of landscape photos awash in dreamy swipes of color as a necessary political statement, but Oakland-based artist Terri Loewenthal is making one: "Our current political reality includes a government unwilling to confront ecological collapse and a president who is actively deaccessioning public land," she said in an interview earlier this year. "I want my images to help preserve the wildness of our open spaces — by heightening and newly envisioning that wildness."
