Antoni Arola has an amazing and strongly diverse portfolio. His design includes interiors, lighting, packing and other expressions of art. It is obvious that was taken with one lighting design in particular. The Flamingo lighting is stunning to look at and appears as though there are quite a few different combinations. UFOs met jelly fish but the ambient light is stunning. My background is graphic design so I really appreciate the package design as well.
I am huge fans of Khouri Guzman Bunce Limited. I have featured their interiors or furniture several time HERE, HERE and HERE. You can sort of tell I am obsessed with their furniture designs. Their furniture designs meld so well with contemporary and mid century. The green velvet sofa is stunning, the geometric lines illustrate a new design without relying too much on the original modernist sofas.
Space Copenhagen has a stellar sense of design. Established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, both graduates of The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture. There is a strong angular feeling, minimal, clean and modern. The materials and surfaces illustrate the room with color as the narrator. The darker interiors are understated but boastful with their dark palette and layers of monochromatic texture. Their furniture design are nice as well. Click on over and take look at their amazing work.
Jim Partridge and Liz Walmsley’s functional woodwork caught my attention right away. I think it was the thought of blackened wood. It was almost like a forced aging process but the end result is a beautiful transformation. The black shapes are beautiful to look and also to interact with. The furniture pieces encourage a touch, feel or taking a load off. I love the color blocking idea of these benches sitting on a white oak floor against a white wall, beautiful simplicity.
Yael Mer & Shay Alkalay are the minds behind Raw Edges Design Studio. They have created something truly intricate and beautiful. Through the exploration of dyeing timber specifically end cuts, they have created patterns that are hard to wrap your mind around. I am completely obsessed with this technique, the bench is one of the most amazing things I have seen. If you remember they were the ones that installed the color floors at the Stella McCartney stores.
De Intuïtiefabriek is an all female design studio trusting in quality and craftsmanship in the use of materials such as, slip casting porcelain, blowing glass and bending wood. The mixed use of materials in these pieces build upon each other creating visual plains and blocks of color. The two different desks have wonderful movement allowing for a constant change in shape and maybe functionality. The pieces have a modern design, clean lined with a minimal approach.
