At Paris London Hong Kong, a Danish Artist’s Spare, Self-Contained Vignettes

What is it about self-contained vignettes — in which the artist creates not only the work but also the structure the work sits upon — that are so pleasing? This is the second exhibition of its kind that we've featured this week, in which the plinth is part and parcel with the piece: Called "Bit by Bit Above the Edge of Things," Danish artist Marie Herwald Hermann’s first exhibition at Paris London Hong Kong in Chicago presents six of these tableaus — primarily made from porcelain, stoneware, and silicone — framing a small room punctuated by a seventh piece in ceramic, fiber, and wood.

Meet Agnes, the Next Big Thing from Central America

Imagine taking a landscape and a civilization and devising an alternative evolutionary path for it — and then creating a collection of furniture based upon that surrogate world. In a nutshell, that's how Guatemala City–based studio Agnes created their newest collection. Designers Estefanía de Ros and Gustavo Quintana spent two years researching pre-Columbian craftsmanship to create the kind of aesthetic that might have emerged had Mayan culture evolved with a bit less Western interference.

The Sonos x Hay Speaker Drops Today — We Gave It the Sight Unseen Treatment

Notwithstanding all of the tubular chairs and iridescent consoles, one of our favorite products to launch in Milan this year was the Hay Sonos One — a collaboration between two of our favorite design brands that saw the speaker being offered in five colors from Hay's 2018 palette. We waited seven. long. months. for the speaker to be available for purchase, and today it finally is. To celebrate the launch, we created a one-night-only installation in Sonos's NYC flagship, inviting five design teams to create a monochromatic room scheme highlighting each of the five colors.
