American Designers Hot List 2017 by Sight Unseen
Like every year, the well known online magazine Sight Unseen has just released its "American Designers Hot List 2017", or the best of design in the United States for a year. Elyse Graham has already been noticed at the event Sight Unseen OFFSITE thanks to an unexpected universe, running color like no other, and which eventually gave birth to a complete collection of furniture and decorative objects in resin. Nice work.
One also discovers the ceramic art of Eric Roinestad is surprising, almost moving or alive... The smooth and immaculate appearance of these object surfaces have something very futuristic, while the designer is clearly inspired by references to ancient times and primitive art for his collections...
After having made many restaurants, bars and hotels in New York City and attracts a wide audience through its formal approach, Oliver Haslegrave of the Home Studios finally used his talent to serve as a whole new collection of furniture and lighting, reflecting the narrative universe and the will of a visual and conceptual harmony achieved.
The Spanish brand Missana has once again been betting on designers with overflowing creativity. In fact, they called on the duo PerezOchando to create a new collection of acoustic panels. A very graphic and seductive look for this collection made up of wall and freestanding panels.
If you do not yet know the wonders of the Studio Note, here's the time to find out the latest in dates. Based in Japan, and already quoted in an article, the studio reveals to us what is not seen, as the incompatibility of a coexistence between linear and organic forms in nature, illustrated by the project Pyrite Stool/Bended a Moon. Or even the absurdity of wanting to create an ornament for the ornament with Wearing a Vase, understand that it is to apply art and design to a vase while a flower is already magnificent...
On the occasion of the DesignArt Tokyo 2017 event , the designer Ryota Yokoseki introduced a very clever shelving system based on folded metal structures...
Stromboli . Associates
The Mexican design studio Stromboli Associates likes to create exceptional and unexpected pieces. The DKMX chair revisits in its own way the Danish 80s, taking as the project's guiding line a tubular structure. The result is a lightweight design with details and colors inspired by the Mexican forgery. What a beautiful line.
It is in a difficult context where women rights must be claimed loudly that the coworking space The Wing, exclusively reserved for women, opened its second location, in New York, in the SoHo district. Created by women for women - the founding team is composed of the architect Alda Ly, the interior designer Chiara de Rege and a team of graphic designers led by Emily Oberman of Pentagram - this space pays homage to the 19th and 20th century feminist clubs, founded by pioneer women who have mutually supported each other. The utmost is done so that femininity and even motherhood (beauty room, a place for nursing, etc.) no longer need to be hidden at work, but rather encouraged. Great initiative! 52 Mercer St, 5th Floor, New York
The latest collection of Vera Panichewskaja, Hidden Pyramids, is in line with the previous, the Salominka Creatures, very sculptural. At the crossroads of several disciplines, as usual, it is a series composed of a mirror and a side table, with a bright, strange but very attractive design, that the designer is showcasing this time.
