This Translucent, Candy-Colored Lucite Jewelry is All We Want to Wear Right Now

Knots, chains, translucent candy colors — Corey Moranis's SS19 Lucite jewelry collection ticks off more trend boxes that we could possibly count. But in truth, the most beguiling thing about Moranis's jewelry is the Lucite itself — a fascinating material that recalls our obsession with colored glass; it, too, retains the memory of its previously liquid state.

Kim Markel's Glossier furniture

Candy-Colored Furniture Made From Recycled Glossier Packaging

Kim Markel's new series of translucent, candy-colored colored furniture pieces in reclaimed plastic is composed partly of Glossier’s pink-hued packaging empties, which the brand asked its employees to collect for months. The collection includes a cabinet, chairs, side tables, and mirrors, as well as a vanity table made from spun stone dust, a new material Markel developed using a by-product of the quarrying process.

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.

The Candy-Colored Ceramics Collection We’re Coveting

The new spring collection from Felt + Fat — the Philadelphia-based ceramics studio founded by RISD architecture grad Wynn Bauer and former Tyler School of Art glass major Nate Mell — looks like its cups, plates and bowls were colored with the powder of chalky-sweet candy hearts. Featuring matte pale pinks and swirls of sage, plus a bright and poppy blue and yellow, the tableware is as suitable for a shelf display as it is for a bustling dinner party — after all, the porcelain clay pieces can be found in restaurants all around the Philly scene.

This is Today Chamber Gallery

Colored Sand, Kool-Aid, and the Potential of Materials

Group exhibitions, which ask a cohort of designers to all respond to the same brief, are far too rare in the American design scene, which often favors solo presentations. That's perhaps why Chamber Gallery's exhibition model, in which an outside curator puts together a few different installments over the course of a year, feels so refreshing. Now on view at Chamber is This Is Today, Matylda Krzykowski's second installment built around the theme of collage.

The Designer Behind Your Favorite Shell-Shaped Accessories Just Dropped a New Collection

Where do you go when your last collection captured the Zeitgeist to a T? That's the dilemma that faced Rosa Rubio of the Barcelona-based Los Objetos Decorativos, whose saturated pastel ceramic seashell vases and catchalls went epically viral when they were released two years ago. For her latest collection, Rubio turned to another material that's been trending — colored glass — and again made it her own.
