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.
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.”
Bentu Design’s WRECK collection makes intriguing use of ceramic waste, with the results somewhere in between Kintsugi and Marmoreal.
Each piece from Yield Design’s new collection with ceramicist John Quick is handmade and finished with a food-safe gloss overglaze.
It’s safe to say Erin Turkoglu’s Paddle Mirror is the high-design Fifty Shades Freed tie-in we never knew we needed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Zara Home is truly killing it these days — just look at this chic geometric bedding!
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.
Ten exclusive works from the artist Kristin Texeira will be on sale this Sunday, Women’s Equality Day, via Uprise Art, with all of proceeds donated to women’s political mobilization efforts by She Should Run.
