I am really liking the DRITTO by Piero Lissoni, especially the larger dining table. The thin geometric iron base matched with an elegant slice of Carrara Marble or Pietra D’Avola give this piece a floating feeling. Depending on where you stand, one might see a “geometric line drawing” and from another view, see an intricate surface.
NaMu by Peter Yong Ra is a beautifully crafted chair that looks to be the next generation of heirloom quality furniture. Will our children be furiously trying to find these chairs after several decades? I really like the leg supports, different and elegant.
NaMu was designed to embody family valuables and the sensibilities rewarded from them. On a daily basis everyday objects are inherited and passed down from one generation to another to become family heirlooms. The NaMu chair represents the enduring moments that are formed with these meaningful treasures. The word Namu, meaning ‘tree’ in Korean, celebrates the importance of family roots and the stories found within them.
Henrybuilt’s new modern modular shelving system aptly named Opencase, not only matches the beauty and quality of there other products but allows for complete versatility. I could think of a million ways to utilize this system in my home.
The Opencase works in a wide range of applications and is designed to evolve with the user’s needs over time. Starting point configurations have been developed for entryways, libraries, offices, wine storage, pantries, wardrobes, utility closets, laundry, and children’s rooms. A single Opencase panel can easily be adapted to a wide range of uses. The Opencase is representative of how Henrybuilt’s combination of function, craft, durability, and beauty come together to create a superior living experience.
Marisa Giannasi (Architect and Designer) and Callum Robinson (Second Generation Cabinet maker) of Method Studio are no stranger to Plastolux, they are a very talented husband and wife duo. We first met them with a “Method Behind” post and we got our first taste of their amazing creativity. After nearly two years they have completed the Mack chair for the Glasgow School of Art. The chair is “simplistic beauty” and has some stunning details found throughout it’s construction.
Jeff Martin is no stranger to Plastolux as we did a “Method Behind” with him that you can read here. Jeff sent me a project he recently completed called the Coastal Credenza. I got pretty excited looking through the pictures of this piece, the credenza is amazing on so many levels. The steel base with the adjustable wood feet look so nice together. I have always been a sucker for a wood that has an amazing wood grained pattern. What I really appreciated is that details are found throughout this piece, one could easily skimp once they got past the pretty wood but Jeff did not take that route.
Jonathon Litchfield recently contacted me about the work they are doing over at STURDY, I am happy he did. I don’t think I have ever given much thought to resin being a material used in a modern setting. I guess I was wrong as STURDY has some beautiful pieces, that at first glance I didn’t think they were resin. The transparency mixed with organic free flowing shapes and colors really give life to these pieces. At the same time these attributes are contained in well proportion geometric shapes, as if framing these ethereal patterns.
Q: Who is?
STURDY is makes sculptural home furnishings using resin, brass, steel and wood. Everything is made to order and handmade. Our studio is zero-waste using locally sourced materials and a team of artisans who have been working with us for decades. In every way we are the opposite of “mass-produced”.
