UO x Clever

 

Elise McMahon | Likeminded Objects

 

Every project of the studio Likeminded Objects, fondé par Elise MacMahon, prend vie sous forme d’évènement collaboratif et d’expositions. Explorant ainsi le partage et l’organisation sociale autour de l’art, Elise croit et crée un design inspirant, auquel elle attribue des propriétés fortes, telle la responsabilité d’aider les autres à travers le design, et de participer à l’amélioration de chaque vie que l’on croise en pleine conscience. Pour la collaboration UO x Clever, the designer américaine et artiste has created a series of colourful, radiant and fun furniture and objects, perfectly in line with her philosophy and the type of projects for which she is known.

Joseph Algieri

 

Depuis 2016, on a pu régulièrement apprécier le travail de Joseph Algieri lors d’expositions de groupe renommées, telles In Good Company (2017), Jonald Dudd et Inside Out (2019). Well-known for his foam luminaires with formes organiques and even extraterrestrial aspects, the designer likes to work with unusual materials, leaving it to his intuition to create irrational shapes to express his vision. Carefully chosen by Clever, he created for Urban Outfitters a foam and ceramic object series in perfect harmony with his usual style.

Katherine Entis | Soft Century

 

Soft Century est un studio de design qui conçoit des produits textiles pour la maison de qualité, aussi bien concernant l’aspect visuel que les matières qui le composent. Fondé par Katherine Entis, the studio promotes ethical and sustainable design, using natural materials as much as possible and offering a decent and fair salary to all intermediaries involved in their collections. Convinced that quality products have their place in our daily living spaces, the American textile designer imagines rug and pillowcases with an attractive and refreshing design. For UO x Clever, she has created several products including:

Leonard Bessemer | Objects for Objects

 

Fondé en 2017 par Leonard Bessemer, le studio de design Objects for Objects a récemment été mis en avant lors d’évènement locaux à Los Angeles, tel le LA Design Festival et l’exposition bi-annuelle de designers indépendants Object Permanence, co-curated by Leah Ring de Another Human. Leonard est ce qu’on appelle un véritable maker, a self-taught carpenter, who has set up and renovated on his own many spaces (stores, cafés, private residences) in Los Angeles bay before creating his furniture design line and studio. With his expertise, he created an entire pop and lacquered furniture collection, made of engineered wood, MDF and plywood, which he shaped it all by himself.

 

Below, his exclusive furniture series, for sale on Urban Outfitters.

Mansi Shah

 

Mansi Shah creates poetic and surprising objects and sees her work as a continuous exploration of play through colours and shapes. Her collection of small mirrors, wall sculptures and other cute decorative elements, placed next to each other, communicate a certain joy and the carefree spirit of children's rooms. It is therefore natural that designer Mansi Shah has created a set of delicate and colourful objects for the partnership between UO x Clever.

Sally Rizzoli | Pezzi

 

Enfin et pas des moindres, Clever has also selected Sally Rizzoli of design studio Pezzi in order to make some nice pieces for Urban Outfitters. Pezzi réalise des objets et petit mobilier abordable pour la maison, réalisés à la main par la designer. Emprunts d’un style minimaliste, her products are all made of wood and plywood, an ideal and durable material. For this project, the pieces she designed have the curved form in common, a guiding line that is here both formal and poetic...
