Check out Made.com. Really interesting and innovative business model. And great designs. Nice combo.
Wrights is having a huge Eames auction. Best of all you can bid online. Via Unbeige.
Herman Miller now has a great new space in Los Angeles on Holdrege Avenue (not too far from my house – I like that). The refurbished warehouse was redesigned by Lynch / Eisinger / Design with the interior by TVS. You can see more designs by Lynch/Eisinger here. Via LATimes.
Pratt Institute lent some of its most famous graduates and professors (including former professor Eva Zeisel)…and less famous students, to fit out a couple of apartments in a new Brooklyn condo designed by Roger Marvel Architects. I spent a bit of time at the Pratt stand during New York Design week this year. The student work was really impressive … as were the students I met. The chair below is a Zeisel design, the side table is designed by a Pratt student in collaboration with Carlos Salgado of Scrapile, and the lamp is a prototype by Tim Richartz. The wall paper below is by interior design students. Via InteriorDesign.
I’ve posted about these guys before – Willard Ford and Andrea Ching have a great eye. Check out their new website and blog (the blog launch party looked like fun). My picks? The Skram wood drop stool above – and the Dragon table below.
New work from New Zealand designer David Trubridge. Above is a cradle that echoes his now ubiquitous Coral light shade. Below are new lights…it’ll be interesting to see if the take off like his original designs did.
New from British designers Dead Good. I love their work…
I was in Anthropologie a few days ago looking for a present for my brother and sister-in-law. They’ve got a tonne of new stuff (a sampling of which is pictured here). I do love their aesthetic. Even though it doesn’t necessarily fit in with the rest of my stuff there is something so alluring about all that ‘pretty’.
A lovely low sling timber chair from HarBennger2.
Outdoor chairs with colour and character from Nan Quick. Quick, trained as an architect, has a quirky design eye that she applies to the her furniture pieces.
