The pendant lighting Phase Chandelier by Anony borrows lightness and grace of suspended mobiles. Alternatively showing different stages and formal appearances of the circle – a sphere, a disc and a melted semi-circle – this airy and hand-finished graphic suspension seems to have found the perfect balance. Thanks to these geometric shapes, the light swing of the luminaire is harmonious and its presence is highly poetic.

Design studio durodeco, composed of architect Rachel Robinson and engineer Michael Dunham, creates furniture and decorative objects of a timeless style. On the occasion of this year edition, the duo presented the Strata mirror and table and the modular low tables Radius. The Strata table is a beautiful piece and displays a strong contrast between black wood legs and two tiered layers of acid-etched, ultraclear glass. As for Radius, it offers the possibility to choose the final form of the set with different combinations. Ingenious.

If you liked the collection that Facture Studio presented last year, no doubt that you're going to fully enjoy Ripple, the latest collection from the Studio. Having swapped mezmerizing green for calm blue this time, the collection offers a set consisting of a table and stools, a wall mirror, a lounge chair and a wall lamp. Increasingly exploiting the incredible properties of the resin, designer Quincy Ellis is always moving forward in exploring the border between art and design. Good job.

The collection Black Arts of designer Nicholas Hamilton Holmes is the result of woodworking in different forms and formal applications. All of them are tinted in a deep black, and each piece results in a pure and effective functionality. However, Canadian designer's taste for beautiful and precious things is nevertheless reflected in his work, displaying rich and neat finishes. Finally, we notice the clear intention to put the traditional crafstmanship forward, moreover, the chairs appear to us almost as coming from a past era, but deeply remastered...

Just like the latest edition of AD Design Show, it was impossible to miss out on the work of studio Kin and Company. It is on a stand adorned with an iridescent wallpaper of Wallpaper Projects giving it cool depth, that the designers presented their latest creation: the Slip Mirror in peach, the extraordinary Thin Shelf (single and double) and the coffee table Wave. All are part of the Spring collection, which began at the fair. Each element that composes it highlights simple geometric shapes and a minimalist design, whose American designers knew how to make the most of rich textured surfaces. Ambassadors of metalworking, cousins Kira de Paola and Joseph Vidich pay tribute to materiality.

Malcolm Majer is undoubtedly one of the revelations of the year in the field of collectible design, on the American side. Indeed, if we have supported the work of the designer since we know about it, it is always a pleasure to see his experimental chairs stand out. Reinventing the fundamentals of classical furniture forms, Malcolm makes his contribution to design with a complete collection with incredible finishes. We love everything.

Michael Felix comes from the third generation of designers, and whose mastery of traditional manufacturing techniques, is today worth it to innovate. Showcased at this edition of AD Design Show, the coffee table Gaspar shows a feat both in terms of design and implementation. Composed of two granite elements at the perfect junction, this piece at the strong and singular design does not forget the functional aspect, allowing to be able to store objects and magazines inside... Very nice work.

Among the new exhibitors of the show there was also Ocrùm, a young New York brand with a simple and delicate aesthetic. We particularly appreciate the mirrors Orizon in two shades and two materials, that Creative Director of the brand Sean Zhang worked according to reliefs at narrative aspect that reinvent this kind of everyday objects pretty well. We also notice the presence of the very light ceiling lamp Dew + Drop, of which touching fragility contributes to the effectiveness of design.

According to the principle of the collection Shale presented at the show last year, Simon Johns presented two new pieces: the Shale Mirror, but also the Ledge Console. Both made from solid ash wood carved and broken in order to obtain this raw aspect, like broken stone, recalls the universe of full nature in which the Quebec designer's studio is located. The Diamond Table is also a novelty, the first table of the designer, it displays a base at the sculptural design made of polished aluminum and oak wood. As for the wall sconce Fold, whose name speaks for itself, it displays simple and complex design at the same time, highlighting the metal very well.

The designers studied solid wood to transform the perception that one can have, always bringing it closer to the raw material of which a coveted dessert is made. Real "sugar" architectures to the enticing simplicity!

Designer Trey Jones was also there and presented in particular his brand new Bookscape coffee table.

VOLK Studio presented a mix of products from the 2017 and 2018 collections. We have mostly paid attention to the St . Charles collection, high in color and very graphic, which is the perfect invitation to the customization of each element. A collection with an approach to contemporary design peaceful but sparkling, to which the designer and founder Brian Volk-Zimmerman has been able to give accents of elegance all in simplicity. Nice work.

Finally, the Brooklyn-based design studio Vonnegut/Kraft presented to the AD Design Show a stand in partnership with the ceramicist Natalie Weinberger. If both have presented works on their own (Relevé Stools and Kana Chair among others for Vonnegut/Kraft), they also partnered in the creation of a new project: the Pastilles Tables, with a glass glaze ceramic top in two colors. These occasional tables, of which legs play with the notion of full and empty, pay tribute to the work of Josef Hoffmann, one of the undisputed master of modernism.
