Week of August 20, 2018

A weekly Saturday recap to share with you our favorite links, discoveries, exhibitions, and more from the past seven days. This week: an unlikely source for geometric bedding, a bathroom made beautiful by neon grout, and a political art initiative to benefit one of our favorite organizations, She Should Run.

Discoveries

DISC-maat-vu

Brooklyn-based David Vu Studio partnered with MAAT Textiles to release the Reulo Stool at NY NOW earlier this month. “Mia Peterson (founder of MAAT) and I had always wanted to collaborate on a project together and we finally found an application for it,” says designer Vu. “She creates the patterns and upholstery and I do the woodworking design.”

DISC-Assembled-furniture

Bentu Design’s WRECK collection makes intriguing use of ceramic waste, with the results somewhere in between Kintsugi and Marmoreal.

DISC-JohnQuick

Each piece from Yield Design’s new collection with ceramicist John Quick is handmade and finished with a food-safe gloss overglaze.

DISC-Paddle-Mirror

It’s safe to say Erin Turkoglu’s Paddle Mirror is the high-design Fifty Shades Freed tie-in we never knew we needed.

Interiors

INT-Tulsa

Vintage is a Tulsa-based wine bar from WORKSTEAD, inspired at turns by Tulsa’s Art Deco heritage and a complementary “dynamic and warm” color palette that offsets WORKSTEAD’s signature lighting and millwork by local craftsman Eric Fransen.

Oslo_The Cut INT-nymag02

Architecture firm Snøhetta took a break from designing jaw-dropping commercial spaces (think: Aesop boutiques) and public spaces (the 9/11 Memorial Pavilion) to design this single-family Oslo home, published this month in New York Magazine; the results are the textbook definition of stunning.

INT-ErinWasson

Erin Wasson worked with longtime collaborator Josh Evan on her Malibu home, an “airy, bright space in a palette of whites and pinks” that showcases iconic designs from Mario Lopez, Robert Laughlin, Raphael Raffel for Maison Honore and a deSede Terrazza by Ubald Klug “waterfall couch” that had to be shipped over from the Czech Republic. Casual!

Kiev-based interior designer Lera Brumina outfitted this Belarus apartment in of-the-moment light wood tones, mauve, and forest green — but it’s the spectacular bathroom (is that neon grout?) that truly sets the space apart.

Shopping

SHOP-MelanieAbrantes

Designer Melanie Abrantes’ new products are inspired by the “idea of documentation and seasonal use;” but really we’re just so into that rare application of cork in home decor that looks good.

DISC-Tino

Designer Tino Seubert’s Flute Pencil Trays are cast in pigmented Jesmonite and, “evolved from a tubular motif he first explored in his design for a baptismal font carved in Travertine.” I don’t know what that means, but damn if Seubert doesn’t know how to upsell a pencil caddy!

SHOP-leandra-medine

Loving this shot from the relaunched MR by Man Repeller shoe collection; for the record, I am so ready for that iconic clog situation come fall.

SHOP-Zara

Zara Home is truly killing it these days — just look at this chic geometric bedding!

Links

LINK-Terraneo

Terráneo is a series that draws inspiration from Madrid-based studio Pleid’s love of the Mediterranean Coast. “Sunsets, ceramics and sea breezes are part of our Summer imagery,” notes the studio’s site.

Loeffler Randall did a sweet feature on Eny Lee Parker, combining her ceramics with the brand’s bags, and the results are very #aesthetic.
