inspired by Ocrùm creative director Sean Zhang's love for an observance of the finer details in our lives is how Bright Shadows came into fruition. Everything that surrounds us, light, sound, movement, and seconds are collected and transformed into objects. By channeling his creative energy into the development of pieces that reflect the natural elements of our world, Zhang aims to fill people's most cherished spaces with a token of a memory or story.
In addition to being objects, the Bright Shadows collection acts as an art installation in itself. Taking on a minimalist and contemporary approach, each piece represents an abstract moment that is unique to every individual in the presence of it. Through the use of his favorite materials such as wood, ceramic and hand-blown glass, Zhang translates a message that evokes a warm feeling of purity, nostalgia and emotion.
"I want people to embrace the poetic memories that I share," says Sean Zhang. "What I want to do is add a little bit of sweetness is people's lives through my designs."
As a Beijing-born artist with a multitude of skillsets acquired throughout the globe, Zhang is fueled by his encounters with different tastes, cultures and walks of life. Having lived in Milan for academic studies, Paris for design week, Tokyo for an internship, Providence for the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and now New York for his studio, Zhang has developed a unique perspective on the understanding of life. At the same time that Zhang was refining his way of thinking, he was creating the concepts in his mind.
His own experiences, the way he sees the world and understanding of life are represented through his first collection. With each organic shape and each line and curve, Zhang shares a piece of his story through the use of a soft-spoken work of art.
Ocrùm is making their collection launch and debut this spring at ICFF May 19-22.
The Blues are more present than ever in this new collection as a symbiosis with nature. Nature shows blues in so many different ways from dawn to dusk. Maison Sarah Lavoine teams found wonderful variations of blue highlighting their new pieces, and creating furniture with noble materials that result in true emotions.

While this wave of cold hasn't really invaded South Florida, we spend enough time in NYC these days to experience how brutal it can be, and we have to admit that it's been a little while since Miamians were not able to spend a chill Sunday at the beach. But, that is still fine since our radars are buzzing with excitement in February as we are allowed to announce the WantedDesign American Design Honors 2019. A round of applause for Arielle Assouline-Lichten, founder of Slash Objects, for this award that will enable her to exhibit her latest designs at WantedDesign Manhattan in May. Assouline-Lichten is the first woman - as an individual - to get this recognition. Even though women were acclaimed in the past with Egg Collective, we're very happy to see that WantedDesign will be all about women this year. If you stroll down SOHO, make sure to stop by Green Street and visit the new USM showroom set, featuring Haller-E, the iconic Swiss Shelving system now enhanced with LED wireless light... You would never guess how it works and yet it is after 7 years of intense engineering development.
In Philadelphia, Moderne Gallery, the leading Nakashima dealer in the world, is making a move and is settling in a new building that will be the new Hub for Arts and Design; Maison Sarah Lavoine is launching her new Blue Collection - available at her showroom in the D&D Building, Rinck is launching its new Beethoven cabinet and Jean-Philippe Nuel unveils a new luxury hotel in Paris, La Clef Champs-Elysées, a perfect destination for a romantic getaway. If these are not enough to keep you warm, give a hug to your neighbor, it's Saint Valentine's, and as I heard, it seem to be a pretty big deal here!

Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat, co-founders of WantedDesign, are thrilled to announce Arielle Assouline-Lichten, founder of Slash Objects as the 2019 recipient of the American Design Honors, an exclusive WantedDesign program, presented with Bernhardt Design.
Launched in 2015, American Design Honors was created by WantedDesign co-founders Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat, and Jerry Helling, President and Creative Director of Bernhardt Design, to recognize up-and-coming American designers who embody excellence in creative design and superior entrepreneurial ability. For consideration, candidates must possess a solid body of work, express a unique design language and offer a pioneering new design business model.

Her line of furniture and products, Slash Objects, explores the intersection of materials and form. Using unexpected juxtapositions and thoughtful design, the studio strives to create beautiful pieces with impact. Arielle is interested in design as a way to transform the way people experience the world - by creating tactile stories that reframe our understanding of materials, to the way we conceptualize the space around us. The objects are made using sustainable and long lasting materials, creating chic homewares from raw parts that have been re-worked to achieve a new effect. Slash is rooted in the belief that thoughtful design leads to a better world.
Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel is proud to present La Clef Champs-Elysées
At the heart of an emblematic and prestigious district in Paris and in a building steeped in history, La Clef Champs-Elysées is distinguished by exceptional services and a particularly refined design. The 70 rooms, suites and apartments combine finesse, elegance, Haussmannian moldings and contemporary touches.
The goal is not to make another hotel but to create a unique place where the customer will feel at home. For this, Jean-Philippe Nuel relies on the architectural heritage of the place to offer a unique experience: The Art of Parisian Living. Breaking the codes of the international hotel industry, the project identifies with a large private residence where different facets of the art of Paris life are expressed: art, gastronomy, haute and couture, all while bringing elegance and glamor instead.
To complete the unique experience, a Salon des Fragrances is installed in the lobby to allow the customer to discover a collection of six fragrances designed exclusively for La Clef Champs-Elysees Paris.

The Beethoven Cabinet
A piece of art, the cabinet was created with rich details and materials. Made with US walnut veneer, pore filler high gloss varnish, and brass inlay, the chest creates a graphic design echoing the slightly hammered brass base with a black patina. The interior is coated in slate and grained leather.
Beethoven is timeless and sculptural, combining contemporary aesthetic to classical inspiration.

Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel is proud to present the new line of luxury Ponant Cruises
Named after famous explorers, Le Champlain, the second of a fleet of six new luxury vessels will be unveiled to the public. Marked by truly unique interior design, Le Champlain is joined by the LAPEROUSE, which first launched in July of 2019. Designed by Studio Nuel, the ship's interior architecture features wooden battens and screen walls that seamlessly express this specific identity, and the carpeting, fabrics and decorative objects that are similarly inspired by the same marine and ethnic spirit.
With a length of 131 meters over 7 decks, and an area of approximately 54895 sq ft, Le Champlain's unique character - whose size allows for exclusive anchorages - is enhanced by a less formal interior design blending luxury with nature. The chromatic palette is inspired by a variation of watery greens reminiscent of the different seas and oceans around the world.
The ship's more human-scaled interior design reflects the most extraordinary and exclusive destinations. At the same time, it also incorporates design codes from sailing life to evoke the more exclusive world of yachting.
A New Cycle
With so many Happy New Year messages in every email this week, I feel like our best wishes may just be another ''flat'' message. And when in PR, you typically want to avoid shallow messages. So I'll elaborate a bit more about the meaning of a new year. 2018 has been exciting and very full of beautiful events, launches and new places to discover. In other terms I haven't seen this year. It just 'swooshed' so fast.
In 2019, I wish our industry would let us catch our breath, slow dow sometimes a little bit when we need to focus on one important idea, or spend more time ''doing'' than planning. Will it ever happen? Not quite sure when I take a look at what we already up to here. But, no one said it was forbidden to hope. So here's to hoping folks, because 2019 brings lots of style, design, hotels, galleries, and pieces that we're already excited to introduce to you. We'll meet for some of you in Paris very soon for Maison&Objet, where our Parisian team is cooking the greatest show for our local clients, while in the US we kick off 2019 with the programming of WantedDesign delivered in your inbox no later than January 9. Being the only independent show on NYCxDESIGN busy schedule, we take some pride in this mission representing such a dynamic venture.
Other good news? Atelier de Yavorsky has just finished revamping an iconic hotel in Saint Barth, Le Sereno, photos coming soon, and Laufen has been awarded for the second year in a row with a BOY Award. A perfectly happy way to ignite 2019!

The Rapa Nui table lamp lives with a spirit of lightness. A strong design with the delicacy of hand-blown glass, Rapa Nui is a refined table lamp with mirrored effects. The lamp's gold and steel finishes give it its reflective and elegant nature.
A triumph of solidity with the touch of lightness of hand-blown glass, the fixture is available in small (15 - ø 18 cm) and large (24 - ø 18 cm) and in two finishes, metallized gold or silver, on a metallic varnished base.
Rapa Nui was made in Italy and designed by Massimo Crema and Ermanno Rocchi. Melogranoblu products, such as the Rapa Nui table lamp are available in the U.S. at SpaceLighting.com.

The AURA pendant lamp delicately disperses light through its rolled metal sheet, finely distributing light through the mesh.
By using a material that is normally used for office accessories, Tomas Kral was looking to sculpt light. The result is a lightweight pendant lamp, with a simple and almost archetypal form, that through the metal mesh diffuses a soft and mellow light.
"AURA is a series of lamps rolled in sheet metal. The mesh of AURA dresses the light bulb with finesse and lightness. Normally destined for office objects, this material plays with light in the same way as a delicate lace veil, allowing a diffused lighting."
TOMAS KRAL, designer
Designed for Oluce by Christophe Pillet, the Berlin light is an object that calls into question the common understanding of the ceiling light. The light turns its traditional discreet character upside down to transform it into an elegant and decorative feature. Refined and versatile, the light is available in the ø40 ceiling version or the ø30 version which can be used either as a wall or ceiling light.
Berlin takes the form of a thick metal ring with a slender profile enclosing a disc of wire mesh glass inside it. The satin brass finishing recalls echoes of Art Deco, given a contemporary update in the shapes, and in the use of LED as the light source.

See the latest creation from UK brand CTO Lighting : IVY
Designed by UK brand CTO Lighting, the IVY pendant is inspired by the green spaces in the heart of London, specifically the new plants that flourish in the spring that grow in all directions organically towards the light. Made by expert craftsmen, the satin bronzed metalwork is curved and perfectly detailed, while the lampshades - which are made of glass - are available in two finishes: opal and smoked shades. These sculptural pieces give designers new opportunities for lights to be used in less static compositions.

I’ve learned over the past few years (everyone has to start somewhere) that I’ve spent in the US that November is the month to be grateful. Once you’ve been scared (to death!) when you walk out of your house in full costume, Thanksgiving season is an amazing opportunity to gather with your loved ones, share moments altogether and enjoy the never-ending Miami summer.
Still, one needs to work during this time of gratitude, and this month we will head north to NYC. We’re pretty grateful for having such busy clients!

Melongranoblu to Launch "Avatar" Glass Pendant at Downtown Design in Dubai this November
Melogranoblu's Hydra collection is enriched with a new pendant, Avatar, completely made of hand-blown glass. The subtle, almost imperceptible, steel cable creates a sort of suspended effect, as if to remember the very meaning of the term "avatar": the descent and reincarnation of a deity on Earth.
Avatar will be exhibited at Downtown Design in Dubai this November. The exhibit will also feature Melogranoblu's Soap Lamp, now considered a classic.
The new pendant is available in two different sizes and two finishes: metallic gold and milk white, which give lightness and elegance to the organic forms of glass.

ABAC is a wall lamp with round and soft lines that combines the functions of a reading lamp with a table lamp.
The shell evokes the fluidity of lifting a veil which reveals lights. This element turns around a central axis for an intuitive and sensorial use. The axis also helps to guide the reading lamp. An independent and fixed backlight draws a halo of light along the periphery of the lamp which seems to take off from the wall to offer a misty aura.
The ABAC lamp is produced and distributed by MLE, and will be presented at this year's BDNY 2018 at booth B1977.
The light is only available for hospitality projects.
BAMO (SF) Showcases their amazing talent at NYC's BDNY with the Ouroboros Lounge
Visit the installation and experience it in NYC, Nov 11-12, 2018
Inspired by Ancient Greek symbolism of a snake eating its own tail in an endless circle, the Ouroboros Lounge represents infinity and nature's endless cycles of birth and rebirth. The mysterious and ethereal space contrasts floral, organic shapes with hard, reflective surfaces all brought together with a bold and colorful kaleidoscopic carpet. BAMO principal, Anne Wilkinson and her team bring this celestial vision to life with the help of booth sponsors in the perfect collaboration of amazing talent.
A transcending concept, the idea of a dark, mysterious, nighttime garden was the genesis of their designed space. A kind of Garden of Eden with a contemporary edge. In contrast to the organic shapes of nature, BAMO explored classic influences such as arches, an axial, orderly plan, and framed views. The space is essentially an arcade with very open sides. At the end of the booth, people will enter through an experience tunnel before coming into the lounge space. The lighting approach is understated, with architectural and accent lighting, except for a bold, overscaled pendant at the bar.
"An ode to the sea"
ARTEFACTO has invited ATELIER DE YAVORSKY to create a new atmosphere for its Coral Gables (Miami, FL) showroom. Guillermo de Yavorsky has created a space inspired by the natural Miami environment: the beach, a theme that fits the sleek style that Artefacto is known for.
After living in St. Barth for ten years and now in Miami for the last four years, De Yavorsky has integrated his Caribbean experience to the Miami scene, and based his design on an essential element of the Caribbean: light. He imagined how it would fit within the space, and how he would recreate it in an organic way. In this project, ATELIER DE YAVORSKY doesn't deliver an overrated vision of the beach lifestyle in Miami. It's clearly the opposite: through a subtle selection of natural materials such as wood, the atelier translates a quiet atmosphere, slightly populated by the lush greenery installed by Andres Tabora.
This initial natural concept was taken a step further with the addition of a faint aquamarine glaze, a prevalent color in Miami and a nod to the reflective nature of the sea. De Yavorsky also changed the color palette, choosing the perfect shade of white for a sofa that acts as the central point in the room, giving the space a fresh and relaxed atmosphere.
