Thank you!

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.

Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel launches ABAC lamp during BDNY 2018

Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel launches ABAC lamp during BDNY 2018
Wed, Oct 31st 2018

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.

ATELIER DE YAVORSKY reveals a new show window for Artefacto (Miami FL)

ATELIER DE YAVORSKY reveals a new show window for Artefacto (Miami FL)
Fri, Oct 26th 2018

"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.

Lighting Design Highlight: Sonora by Oluce

Lighting Design Highlight: Sonora by Oluce
Mon, Oct 15th 2018

Oluce highlights the Sonora Lamp

The story of Sonora is one of a pure geometrical shape, pursued by designer Vico Magistretti throughout his entire life. The creative path followed by the architect and designer in his projects is a peculiar itinerary: geometry represents a constant fellow traveller. His main source of inspiration is simplification. Created in 1976, Sonora is a suspended lamp available in several materials and sizes, and is one of the symbols of this creative path. It has remained, for the entirety of its 40 years of existence, one of the most appreciated lamps not only by the public but by Magistretti himself.

A few years ago, Oluce celebrated the 40-year anniversary of the emblematic lamp in a commemorative exhibition. The exhibition was held at the Understate showroom in Milan, and unveiled two new Sonora bespoke models realized ad hoc for the celebration: the first one bronze and the second one a sophisticated craquelé ice finish.

The Sonora suspended lamp is available in several sizes and colors, including black, gold and white. The dome-shaped lamp effortlessly conceals the light and casts light directly downwards when illuminated. Because of its inherent simplicity, the Sonora lamp is just the right fixture for any environment.

This Holiday Season, stay cozy with a new family... PING

Just launched at Maison&Objet this fall, PING originates from a Soviet tin toy, a penguin, placed in Andras Rigler's grandparents' food cupboard, and who, in the mind of the then little boy, was monitoring his every move. At that time, Andras was only 5 years old. He went on to morph this fear into a sweet memory, and harnessed it to draw, or rather sculpt, this collection.

Ping is not only a series of 4 containers but also company for everyday life, in a hall, on a chimney, in a kitchen... "PING is a family of containers with purified forms of penguins. The "Grand Pere" version is the last piece that completes the collection: it offers more volume thanks to its more imposing appearance. Each PING is unique"- ANDRAS RIGLER

Bring Ping and his family into your home this holiday season and whether he stores the treats or holds the decor the Ping family will be sure to spark this your festivities with joy and happiness.

The Holidays!

All of a sudden it’s the Holiday season all over again. I haven’t even realized we’ve already come to that point of the year, until I heard myself saying to a client this morning: we may be a little late to be included in gift guides if you want to start pushing your end-of-year products right now.
And then it struck me. Halloween is almost here, and so many things are supposed to happen before Christmas!

All events are listed on their website...

After that we may organize a costume contest between our Paris and Miami teams, just for fun, because November is bringing exciting new clients along our way, but we won’t say too much just now. I’ll be Harry Potter in his invisibility cape. How about you?

New Lighting Design: Lucid by CTO Lighting

Mon, Oct 1st 2018

See the latest creation from UK brand CTO Lighting
Lucid

Designed by Michael Verheyden, the Lucid collection was inspired by Parisian brasseries and snow domes. Both functional and sculptural, the light celebrates premium materials, satin brass with oxidized silvered brass, and honed hand-carved alabaster. For the lights, CTO Lighting worked with a silversmith to experiment with new finishes, and with this process discovered a textured finish that compliments the brass and silver.

The Lucid collection boasts a pendant lamp, table lamp, and a wall light in the Lucid 200 and 300 option. The visual effect of the lamp is harmonious with the space, adding an element of elegance and refinement that is easily adaptable to its environment.

Don't miss the creative parklets on September 21st, 2018

The Philadelphia Design District is getting ready to shake the streets of Old City District with its first participation to PARK(ing) Day PHL.

PARK(ing) Day PHL, which is held annually on the third Friday of September, provides an opportunity to explore how public spaces could be better designed to serve us all. Throughout the streets of Philadelphia, parking spaces on the street will be transformed into mini "parklets". These parklets will allow people to better understand how much space in the city is given over to automobiles (Philly has 3.7 parking spaces PER HOUSEHOLD) and invite the visitors to engage with cleverly designed, temporary public spaces.

These vignettes or parklets are an opportunity to promote green and pedestrian friendly urban spaces with smart design ideas.

A map of all the parklet locations will be available for download beginning on September 13th on the Philadelphia Center for Architecture and Design website.

Some members of the Philadelphia Design District will create their own parklets sharing their interpretations for design within an urban space. Their goal is to challenge the visitors to consider whether we are making the best use of our limited urban spaces, using their natural creative mindset to turn the public space into a surprising and intriguing environment.

The 50th Anniversary of the Coupé Lamp by Oluce

The 50th Anniversary of the Coupé Lamp by Oluce
Mon, Sep 17th 2018

Oluce : A Spotlight on Coupé's 50th Anniversary

To celebrate Coupé's 50th anniversary, Oluce has created a special edition of a product that has stood the test
 of time and many passing fashions to become
 a classic of interior design. The new version 
of the classic floor lamp style produced by Oluce is available
 in a limited edition of 500 numbered pieces, featuring a sleek, gold trimmed finish and the 50th anniversary engraving on the base.

The original Coupé series, designed by Joe Colombo in 1967, was initially conceived as a variation of the Spider family, also created by Colombo, of which it has kept its base and stem. The simple, ingenious mechanism that connects the stem to the head makes it possible to direct the beam in several directions by moving the dome up, down and sideways.

Available in two versions, with either a semi-cylindrical or a semi-spherical dome, over the years, many models of Coupé have been created (ranging between the historic table lamp to the floor and wall lamps), becoming one of Oluce's most popular and best-known collections.

Today a full-fledged icon 
of lighting and Italian design, in 1968 Coupé was awarded 
in Chicago the International Design Award by the American Institute 
of Interior Designers. The lamp is included in the permanent collections of New York's MoMA 
and the Neue Sammlung Museum in Munich, among others.

Melogranoblu : Spotlight on Massimo Crema, co-founder of Melogranoblu
Fri, Sep 14th 2018

Conceived and founded in 1997 by Ermanno Rocchi and Massimo Crema, Melogranoblu is an Italian interior lighting company based in Bergamo, Italy. Over the years, the company has developed a wide range of solutions for interior lighting design suitable for homes as well as offering more impressive installations for large architectural settings.

Hand blown glass is a skill Melogranoblu has turned into an art form, and it all begins with a sketch. During the early creation phases, both partners work with a skilled glass-blower to brainstorm ideas and collaborate their talents into a vision. "Glass is a fascinating material for its lightness and transparency, but when combined with light it transmits the magical emotional effect, our role is to capture that emotion so that everyone can enjoy it," said Crema. With previous professional experiences in the field of the theater, Crema thrives on creating light fixtures that are an ode to scenography. He loves working with architectural spaces because many people can enjoy his products and experience the emotional effect they evoke as well but the uniqueness of these fixtures in that they work in both commercial and private settings.

With three different guises: singles, clusters or jointed, ARTES pendants are ideal for bringing understated beauty to double-height spaces, office atriums or simply above a dining table or kitchen island.

Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel unveils its latest Parisian Project: the Belleval Hotel

Studio Jean-Philippe Nuel unveils its latest Parisian Project: the Belleval Hotel
Mon, Sep 10th 2018

Architect Jean-Philippe Nuel is calling the shots, bringing a touch of the wild to this superb Haussmann-style building. The result is a hotel, set to open September 12th, that offers a taste of Paris, a place dedicated to the Parisian tribes as well as travellers from around the world.

A destination in itself, the hotel offers a variety of services to appeal equally to local people and visitors from afar. In osmosis with the surroundings, the restaurant and bar are self-contained spaces opening onto the street. Upstairs, the fifty-two guest rooms and streets are modern Parisian nests where it's easy to feel at home. The old building's carriage entrance has been turned into a monumental lobby around which the hotel's various areas are organized. The hustle and bustle of the hotel's guests and visitors revolves around a central bench seat.

Get back up again

Happy September folks! After a major slow down during summer - ever tried to work with Europe in August? - we’re all ready to start the new year off like we’re back in school and in the gifted class. This class however is for very busy grown-ups only...and non-negotiable.

I wish I could disclose everything in the Editor’s letter, but I literally can’t, even though there is so much more going on. Funny thing is that yesterday I gave a talk about how one should be prepared for any Design Week to come. Maybe I should organize a talk on how one should get ready for September?  Since we’re in the gifted class, I’ll add this to my project list for October!

Sarah Hamon, CEO and founder of S2H Communication

PETITE FRITURE: New products this fall

PETITE FRITURE: New products this fall
Tue, Aug 14th 2018

With Maison&Objet just a month away, PETITE FRITURE is ready to showcase some wonderful pieces for everyone to enjoy. From childhood memories brought to life to fun colors that bring life to a space, this fall we will unveil the PING collection and the exciting new colors of the WEEK-END Collection.

PING – COLLECTION
PING originates from a Soviet tin toy, a penguin, placed in Andras Rigler’s grandparents’ food cupboard, and who, in the mind of the then little boy, was monitoring his every move. At that time, Andras was only 5 years old. He went on to morph this fear into a sweet memory, and harnessed it to draw, or rather sculpt, this collection.
Ping is not only a series of 4 containers, but also company for everyday life, in a hall, on a chimney, in a kitchen…

WEEK-END – COLLECTION New Colors
The WEEK-END collection, created by studio BrichetZiegler, integrated the PETITE FRITURE catalog in January 2017. WEEK-END is a full range of outdoor furniture in aluminum grained epoxy paint, with a matte finish that includes 10 functions, 5 colors for the retail market and the NEW 12 complementary colors for the contract market.

Maison&Objet 2018
Paris, France
September, 7th - 11th
PETITE FRITURE - Today & Signature - Hall 6 stand J48
