17 Projects We Loved at This Year’s Collectible Fair in Brussels

We didn't have the pleasure of personally attending this year's Collectible design fair in Brussels, where Sight Unseen hosted an installation by Objects of Common Interest, yet word traveled quickly back to us that those who did had taken to referring to our presentation as "the famous booth," an accolade that Instagram seemed to confirm. We were flattered to hear it, of course, but also honored to share the spotlight with so many other great presentations by galleries and up-and-coming designers. Click through to see our favorites.

A Brand New Design Gallery in Mexico City Just Launched With an All-Star Lineup

MASA was inevitable, and MASA was what we'd been waiting for — a stake planted for high-end design within the cultural renaissance happening in Mexico City right now. Everyone talks about the city's epic food scene, and its influential art galleries, and the Zona Maco fair, and the budding starchitects building fancy museums. There's even a Design Week Mexico and a couple of good design galleries working with local talents. But before MASA debuted this past week, with an exhibition of furniture and lighting by 15 of the city's top artists and designers, there wasn't really a definitive platform for contemporary experimental design, at least not one as ambitious as this.

Meet the Florist Behind Instagram’s Dreamiest Still Lifes

Doan Ly's floral still life photographs could, in a way, be read as contemporary vanitas paintings — compositions of hyper-saturated bouquets, exotic fruits, and colored lights whose addictive, saccharine appeal might symbolize the fleetingness of beauty, and of Instagram culture itself. Yet we prefer to look at it like Ly does: The world is a shitty, shitty place right now, so let's all just take a sec to enjoy some insanely pretty flowers.
