A Showcase for Experimental Craft — And Iridescence — On View in London

Like Salon in New York, the Collect fair in London has recently evolved to become a platform for enabling more risk-taking work, showcasing the latest possibilities, processes, and technologies at play in the field of making. The peripatetic London gallery Seeds, a longtime SU favorite, returned to the fair this year with newly commissioned works from nine contemporary designers.

In a New Show, a 3D Artist Tries His Hand At Something New — Making Furniture

This week, in a bit of a twist, 3D artist Andrés Reisinger brought one of his metaphysical spaces to life: For one of Chamber Projects' bi-monthly Quick Tiny Shows, curated by Juan García Mosqueda and held in the courtyard of RIES's studio, Reisinger created three design objects — a lamp, a curtain, and a snakelike silver seating unit meant for group lounging, John Chamberlain-style.

The Dusky, Sophisticated Beauty of Natalie Weinberger’s Ceramics

Natalie Weinberger’s ceramics draw you in with their dusky beauty while a sense of mystery keeps you looking. Her pieces have the stillness of arrested movement; they seem both captured in time but not limited by any one moment, nodding to pottery’s long history, but also feeling oh so current. Or, as she puts it: “I love a good remix.”

We Thought We Were Over Terrazzo Until We Saw This Epic Apartment in Lithuania

Why do some trends fizz out, while some stick around and — in many cases — keep coming back stronger year after year? Take terrazzo: We've been hawking that gorgeous, endlessly reconfigurable aggregate since at least 2013, but the design world's adoration of it has hardly waned in the six years since.
