In New Photos by Charlie Schuck, Bower’s Work Has Never Looked Better

There's a definitive look to Charlie Schuck's photography — sumptuous curtains, graphic shadows, perfectly brushed carpets, mirrored surfaces, and richly painted walls — and perhaps no studio's work is better suited to that look than Bower. So when we heard Bower's brand-new website was up and running — with brand-new imagery taken by Schuck — we immediately reached out to publish the incredible results.

A New Furniture Collection That Merges Two Top Design Trends

Somewhere around 2015, two major design trends emerged that — from time to time — have also subsequently converged. The first is something we call "warm minimalism," referring to the blonde wood / muted pastels / brass / simple shapes combo that's still going strong; the second is the Dimore Studio brand of understated glamour that skews slightly more classic, in richer textures and tones. When they're combined, you get work like Robert Sukrachand's newest collection, debuting today at the AD Design show.

If You Can’t Get a Table at Noma, At Least Now You Can Buy a Piece of the Decor

Talk about the ultimate design karma: Two friends graduate from the design program at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, conceive two vases in pigmented concrete as Christmas presents for their mothers, and just like that are discovered on Instagram by the designers behind Noma — aka the best restaurant in the world — and commissioned to create three new styles for the restaurant's recently reopened Copenhagen location.

Ever Wonder What Sight Unseen Would Look Like As a Fashion Collection?

As a design magazine, our relationship to fashion can be somewhat tenuous. We tend to cover accessories and jewelry more often than clothes, and while we love to scroll through the runway shows each season, it's mostly to identify which trends have the capacity to translate to interiors. So we were unprepared for the kinship and immediate obsession we felt when we first spied Sies Marjan's hyper-pigmented FW18 collection, which launched last week in New York.

Iridescent Glass and Canary-Yellow Cushions Soften Up This Architectural Furniture Collection

We first fell in love with the bright, geometric designs of up-and-coming Australian designer Elliot Bastianon when we spotted his Donald Judd–esque acoustic paneled bench a few years back. His latest works, on display this month at M2 Gallery in Sydney (reminding us yet again that now would be a perfect time for an Australian vacation), maintain the designer's strong linear emphasis and poppy use of color.

A New Danish Furniture Collection Inspired by Typographic Weights

I can often spend hours adjusting my fonts on a document or project. A little bold here, a lightweight there. Turns out now I can do that with my furniture too: The new collection from Copenhagen’s Studio David Thulstrup — who teamed up with the newly relaunched Danish design company Møbel Copenhagen — is inspired by circular geometry and typography weights.

An Artist Who Moves Shapes From Two Dimensions to Three

To understand the work of artist Elizabeth Atterbury — and how it's changed since we first profiled her almost exactly three years ago — look no further than the solo exhibition she had at Mrs. Gallery in New York this past spring: While she used to photograph the geometric compositions she created from sand, cut metal, or corrugated paper, those elements now appear both as two-dimensional images and as three-dimensional works in their own right.

Moody, Limited-Edition Pieces By a Brand-New Berlin Design Collective

Three years ago, at a café in Berlin, three friends — Joern Scheipers, David Kosock, and Bart Navarra — came up with the idea to channel their love for art and design into creating furniture. Their friendship — and their backgrounds in fashion, branding, and architecture — finally coalesced last year into VAUST, an experimental furniture and interiors studio whose first collection launched earlier this month at Der Berliner Salon.

If You Like Design and Books, You’re Going to Love [Reads]

We're living in a world where the algorithm pretty much rules all: The algorithm decides which high school friends are worth keeping up with, whether you might enjoy the new album by Gucci Mane, and if you're the type of person who would buy Loeffler Randall shoes from an Instagram ad. So it's refreshing — and kind of quaint — that the new book subscription and delivery service [reads] is curated by actual humans.

Two Furniture Collections That Prove the Mexican Design Scene Is on the Rise

By now you've all heard some variation on the rumor that Mexico City is the new Berlin; maybe you've even had an artist friend make good on their threats to move down there. Certainly it's a city that everyone suddenly has big plans to visit, and for good reason — the Mexican art and design scenes are increasingly (for lack of a better word) hot right now, and if our report last year from design week didn't convince you of the latter, these projects by PLDO and Savvy Studio just might.

Our Go-To Destination for Accessible, Scandinavian-Inspired Design Just Popped Up in NYC

America has a furniture problem: If you are young, aesthetically minded, and upwardly mobile but not quite rich, where do you buy your furniture? When you're looking for something with more staying power than Urban Outfitters, a greater cool factor than CB2, and less ubiquitous than West Elm, where do you turn? For the last few years, whenever we've been asked that question (which is, to be honest, all the damn time), we've answered: Have you heard of Hem?

This Dutch Designer is Giving Concrete a Serious Makeover

At this point, we've seen pretty much every formerly humdrum thing in the universe get a design-forward makeover, from watering cans to luggage. But Dutch designer Iwan Pol wasn't happy to simply renovate a product category — he wanted to recast an entire architectural material. "Concrete can take any shape or form, so why not aim for a softer look and feel?" he says.
