Norwegian design brand A Part

Four Designers Just Got Together to Form a Norwegian Superbrand

Remember Temple of the Dog? The Traveling Wilburys? Cream? In music, the idea of a supergroup — in which several successful solo musicians band together to form a new group — is a familiar one. In design, it's less so — and yet that's exactly what four Norwegian designers have done with their new brand A Part, which launched earlier this week.

Tour the Chic, Vintage-Filled Silverlake Home of an Up-and-Coming L.A. Interior Designer

The mid-century Silverlake home that Tiffany Howell shares with her husband and son gave the interior designer and Night Palm owner 1,500 square feet in which to fully realize pet ideas like a "postmodern Golden Girls" bedroom, making it the perfect second installation in our Creative Women at Home collaboration with Sonos. We’ve teamed up with the smart speaker brand for a storytelling series in which we’re visiting the homes of four influential women to find out how they live, work, relax, and listen.

These Psychedelic, Rainbow-Colored Landscape Photos Make a Subtle Political Statement

You might not think of a series of landscape photos awash in dreamy swipes of color as a necessary political statement, but Oakland-based artist Terri Loewenthal is making one: "Our current political reality includes a government unwilling to confront ecological collapse and a president who is actively deaccessioning public land," she said in an interview earlier this year. "I want my images to help preserve the wildness of our open spaces — by heightening and newly envisioning that wildness."

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.

These Colorful, Hand-Crafted Rugs Honor Mexico’s Lost Traditions

We keep coming back to these playful, colorful rug designs by the brand-new Barcelona-based company Rrres, which was started by Javier Reyes, a graphic designer from the Dominican Republic. The rugs are made with artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico, and are decorated with graphic, glyph-like symbols — although his more recent designs, which we're featuring here today, incorporate abstraction and curves.

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.
