If you've ever fallen in love with the clean lines of a fluted ceramic pastry dish brace yourself for Paola Navone's Zig Zag Collection for Eno. Made of porcelain, the collection features dinnerware & servingware; all beautifully fluted.
I loveDe La Espada- sooooo much. They do everything beautifully. They also work with stellar designers like Autoban, Studioilse, and Leif.designpark. Here's a little preview of some of their new pieces by Leif.designpark, set to launch at the London Design Festival in September:
From top to bottom, we've got:
Len Lamp, Lily Side Table, Lily Coffee Table, Flower Cup Chair, & Lily Dining Table.
Previous De La Espada love can be found here and here.
Cleanup, the soap shaped like a landmine, has been added as a product at Droog New York & Droog Amsterdam. Proceeds from each purchase raise money for landmine removal, as well as for survivor support and promoting general awareness. Cleanup was designed by then Parsons student Hideaki Matsui as his thesis project. Can't put it better than this: "As the soap disappears, so do the landmines."
Patternity is a London based design studio. They specialize in patterns and even offer a resource of patterned images on their fantastic blog; images to admire and use! A new collection by Patternity duo Anna Murray & Grace Winteringham has them collaborating with furniture maker and marquetry whiz, Toby Winteringham, who also happens to be Grace's Dad. Here's the gorgeous Phase Bureau from the collection:
Made from fumed oak, oak, ceder, and marquetry, the Phase Bureau measures 120 x 150 x 40cm.
Honestly, I had no idea I wanted such a large, luxurious bathroom! But that was before I saw this:
These images feature Hansgrohe's Axor Urquiola collection, designed by the super-fabulous Patricia Urquiola. Also thrown into the gorgeous mix are some of Urquiola's iconic designs, like Moroso's Shanghai Tip occasional table, Emu's Re-Trouvé 575 stool, the Flos Chasen S1 pendants, and B&B Italia's Lens side table. All fixtures and bath components are, of course, from the Axor line.
What makes this room so amazing? I really love a white room with a lot of green, so that part of the attraction is easily identified. Otherwise, I think it's the touches of wood, the expansive reflective & patterned surfaces, the eclectic touches from the printed pendant lights and patterned rug (Paola Lenti by Urquiola and Eliana Gerotto- sadly, possibly discontinued). And the pieces with thin black lines ground the room beautifully, as do the touches of grey. Oh, and click on the images if you want a better look!
