Week of April 9th, 2018
A weekly Saturday recap to share with you our favorite links, discoveries, exhibitions, and more from the past seven days. This week: a pink velvet daybed that’s sure to be a conversation starter, an Instagram-centric installation that’ll live on forever in our feeds, and a series of small spaces that make the most of neutral wood tones and pops of pastels.
Dutch designer Emiel Remmelts’ folded trays, made of powder-coated steel and available in circular and rectangular shapes, are of a piece with Good Thing’s versatile wares and perfect for organizing your kitchen utensils or office supplies.
Swiss designer Josefina Muñoz’s 9-piece ceramic collection, The Soul Of Black Clay, is the strikingly on-trend result of a one-month residency program in China’s Sichuan province.
Berlin-based furniture brand BANNACH is the eponymous line of designer Moritz Bannach, launched just this year. Their debut product is a an eye-catching eight-foot dining and conference table available in lacquered MDF or lacquered ash veneer.
In the market for a daybed that screams “louche minimalism”? No? That’s a shame, because the Dorcia Daybed by Jorge Arturo Ibarra for Luteca is exactly that; pleasingly au courant yet perfectly suited for a sanitorium.
So this technically ended a few weeks ago, but CJ Hendry’s Monochrome installation, held in a warehouse in Greenpoint, is a pitch perfect example of an exhibit that will live on forever on Instagram. Maybe that was always the point?
PIN-UP interviewed the South African menswear designer Rich Mnisi about his collection of furniture, consisting of a chaise and a stool; the specially commissioned pieces are part of a group show of multidisciplinary artists—ending this weekend—at Southern Guild gallery.
UK-based graphic designer Josh Dring has been producing a new poster design every day for a year and sharing them on Instagram; bright and boldy geometric, they’re an affordable art fix in line with Danish darlings Atelier CPH.
Also on AD, London-based Studiomama (which has collaborations with Marc by Marc Jacobs and Skagerak under its belt) made this teeny-tiny studio entirely of custom plywood—a small space dweller’s dream. I should know.
Cup of Jo took a peek into design duo Hollister and Porter Hovey’s apartment where the sofa steals the show. Turns out they got it at an online auction — LiveAuctioneers — for just $600. A little motivation not to do literally everything on the ‘gram.
