Fermob Announces 3 New Colors at Maison&Objet Exhibit

Fermob Announces 3 New Colors at Maison&Objet Exhibit
Wed, Sep 18th 2019

At M&O, French outdoor furniture brand Fermob emphasized the debut of three new colors: Frosted Lemon, Clay Grey and Ice Mint; presented in full by an astonishing wall scenography. Available in 2020, Fermob gives us a glimpse into next year's colors and collections to hit the market.
Frosted Lemon is powerful pastel, which awakens the color chart and makes other shades more radiant with its luminosity. Just like the famous sorbet, Frosted Lemon provides freshness and pep. It reminds us of summer and sunshine, refreshment on shaded terraces and the intensity of life.
As close as you can get to natural materials and taking its qualities from them, Clay Grey is the perfect binder. Essential and timeless, this warm grey goes with all the colors of the color chart to create mosaics of shades that are enhanced by its powdery appearance
A combination of white, blue and green is the subtle cocktail that created Ice Mint. It is an assertive shade, which blends well with the clear-cut colors of the Fermob color chart. A tone with subtle variations: tropical or vintage, Italian or Scandinavian atmospheres, Ice Mint calls to mind wide open spaces or a cozy lounge

Looking to the Future
Renovations in Exciting New Showroom & Warehouse Now Complete
35th Anniversary Celebration: September 27th, 2019
In January 2019, the renowned Moderne Gallery, established in 1984 as one of just five galleries in Old City Philadelphia, opened a new chapter in its history by being the first tenant to move into The Showrooms at 2220 (2220 East Allegheny Avenue, 19134), in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia.
The move enlarges the role of Moderne Gallery Founder and Co-director Robert Aibel's son, Joshua Aibel, who is both Co-director and Design Director of Moderne Gallery, continuing the Moderne Gallery legacy as a multi-generational business.
The new space, developed by Michael Gruber, Moderne Gallery's longtime interior designer, allows visitors to see Moderne Gallery's full inventory in one location. Over 4,500 sq. ft of gallery space are occupied by the finest works of vintage and contemporary studio furniture, studio ceramics, turned wood and much more. This is a great chance for George Nakashima enthusiasts to see the U.S's largest and finest collection of Nakashima's 1940's-1980's designs, all in one space.

The Tyché Mirror by French designer Emilie Lemardeley

The Tyché Mirror by French designer Emilie Lemardeley
Tue, Sep 17th 2019

Named after the Greek goddess of chance, fate and fortune, the Tyché mirror brings color and character to reflection. The mirror is made of different tinted layers of mirrors that are cut precisely to create a flat but dynamic piece of art.
Tyché offers two different designs that remind of animal, like a bird gliding through the air or a fish moving in water. Both inspire reverie and add an intriguing shape to the primary function of the object. Beyond what you would expect from a piece of wall decor, Tyché brings life and movement on surfaces. Lemardeley also proposes two diffrent colors combinations: gold, gray and white or gold, coral and white.
Designed as jewelry for the interior, these creations reflect French craftsmanship infused with elegance and refinement. Emilie Lemardeley, founder of the brand and creator behind these statement mirrors, is passionate about history, or history (s), which she shares by translating into objects, lights, and furniture. From the Greek myths of Adamas, Dyonisos and Demeter, to Emir Kusturika's strange Golden Carp floating in the air, Lemardeley invites us into a dreamlike universe and its characters like Tyché.

Umasqu Presents the Chili Tribe Collection

Umasqu Presents the Chili Tribe Collection
Thu, Sep 12th 2019

The first collection of its kind for the decor brand
Decor brand Umasqu presents their newest collection that debuted at MAISON&OBJET last week. This collection is the first of its kind, Umasqu's first tabletop version of their icon looks.The Chili Tribe collection is inspired from Umasqu's continuous observation and interest in ancient culture's faces and masks, recreated with modern take-off. In shifting their masks from a wall hanging medium to a standing object, Umasqu was faced with the challenge of fitting their design language into an object that is smaller in scale and one that adds even more expression and detail.This Chili Tribe collection brings to front a new design process, adding on a 4th layer of MDF which allows for a wider range of design detail and color. All of Umasqu's items are hand painted, unique with their own character and just like us humans, they have some imperfections that make them perfect.
The new collection will still offer the Chili Tribe dolls (standing object) as a wall option, ensuring that customers have options for their decor. Perfect for placement on your office desk, for characterization in the living room or in the kids room, you can not go wrong with this artistic comic art.

Hurricane Season Some may go back to school (if you're a parent please cheer with me), some may get ready for Maison&Objet or NY Textile Month. Down here in Florida, we do it all, and we also start to monitor the Weather channel for Dorian, our potential 2019 Hurricane. Now we know the drill, so no more panic, we'll just stack on bottled water, battery (even if nothing in our house work with AAA... they said to do so on TV, and I've become somewhat of an American, because now I listen to what they say on TV when they wear a tie and there's a red sign somewhere on the screen), canned tuna and chips. Then, like every September, I'll pack for Maison&Objet.

La Manufacture Cogolin presents Botanical Rugs by Studio Glithero at Paris Design Week

La Manufacture Cogolin presents Botanical Rugs by Studio Glithero at Paris Design Week
Thu, Aug 29th 2019

Botanical Rugs by Studio Glithero
La Manufacture Cogolin will introduce a new series of rugs, hand- knotted in silk, wool and linen, created in collaboration with Tim Simpson and Sarah van Gameren, cofounders of the north-London design Studio Glithero. The innate curiosity and attention to detail at the foundation of the collaboration of Dutch designer Sarah van Gameren and British designer Tim Simpson yields products that combine precision with inventiveness, and serendipity with design.
The hand-knotted Botanical Rugs collection depict flora that have been foraged and pressed before being composed into intricate designs. The specimens come from the designers' own herbarium,
a library of pressed botanicals that have been collected over several years - wild and undisciplined weeds that grow in cracks and wind around lampposts.
The Botanical Rugs patterns bridge the relationship between the inside and the outside. Likewise the colorways are chosen to transport us to a distinct yet subtle moment of colour in nature; a field of golden corn, a pavement scattered with rose petals, or a bouncy patch of moss. The blue rug bears reference to Glithero's classic blue cyanotype collection that is printed by light with early photographic blueprinting techniques. The Botanical Rugs collection is available in four colorways: Rose, Moss, Corn and Blue and in several standard sizes. Customization is possible upon request.

See the latest addition to the IVY family from UK brand CTO Lighting
Tue, May 14th 2019

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.
The collection was extended with CTO Lighting offering an elegant table option to join the existing pendant, wall and floor lamps. The new additions take the same inspiration from nature as its predecessors, with a form reminiscent of plant shoots bursting forth in an asymmetric, free-flowing shape. The new IVY table lamp echo the pendant's stems rising vertically from the ground or trailing down a wall, with an organic fluidity that instantly softens a space.

Watercolor Pigments take on New Forms in Petite Friture's Latest Tables: FRANCIS

Watercolor Pigments take on New Forms in Petite Friture's Latest Tables: FRANCIS
Thu, May 9th 2019

Petite Friture and designer Constance Guisset created the Francis mirror in 2011, a mirror with an iconic look that came about from an experiment with pigments: the fleeting vision of colour billowing off the tip of a paintbrush as it dipped in water. Last month, Francis tagged along for the ride to Milan to show off its new elements at Salone del Mobile: two three-table series, one with a white base, the other in black, and a new mirror beyond all measure. The two series of tables are a study-in-blue: the black series exploring the warmer tones of pink and violet; wheras the white series focuses on brighter yellow and greens.
Now presented along the horizontal plane, the haze-like pigments of the Francis mirror take on this new-found vigour, softening the harsh reflection and the circle's geometric proportions. Each table-top in the series comes with its own watercolour hue. The narrower the mirror, the more vibrant and animated the colour.

S2H announces collaboration with La Manufacture Cogolin

S2H announces collaboration with La Manufacture Cogolin
Tue, Apr 30th 2019

In 1928, in a tiny French village just a stone's throw from Saint- Tropez, a textile engineer named Jean Lauer purchased the Cogolin rug workshop, and an adventure that would span the next century of carpet-making began.
Immediately, visionnary Jean Lauer set about transforming his new acquisition from a factory specializing in silkworm culture and hand-knotted rugs into an atelier for innovation. He installed 19th century Jacquard hand looms and imported a host of new techniques for knotting and weaving.
These advances enabled the company to produce a wider variety of rugs and led to Cogolin's increasingly widespread recognition throughout the 1930s as a leading creator of bespoke products. Cogolin creations would soon be found gracing some of the world's most prestigious interiors, from Versailles to the Élysée to the most luxurious French ocean liners.
This acclaim also led to collaborations with some of the most celebrated artists and decorators across Europe, such as Jules Leleu, Jean-Michel Frank, Christian Bérard, Sir David Hicks
and Jean Cocteau. The models created in partnership with these legendary figures continue to line La Manufacture Cogolin archives today as a testament to its place in contemporary carpet history.

Ocrùm "Bright Shadows" Collection Launch & Debut at ICFF

Ocrùm "Bright Shadows" Collection Launch & Debut at ICFF
Tue, Apr 23rd 2019

Bright Shadows
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.

Polar Vortex

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!

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.

Arielle Assouline-Lichten is the founder of Slash Projects, a multidisciplinary design firm in New York whose work spans from digital to physical. 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.

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.

S2H Communication announces its collaboration with RINCK
Thu, Jan 17th 2019

S2H Communication is happy to announce its collaboration with French furniture and interior architecture brand, RINCK.

An ambassador of French lifestyle, RINCK encompasses as both an interior architecture-decoration firm and a production workshop, specializing in decorative arts, furniture, and boiserie, thereby dovetailing the realms of creation and fabrication.

For Rinck, a contemporary creation is never a break with the past, but a daily reinterpretation of a mastered and masterful collection of oeuvres - a lesson we learned from our elders, the virtuosos of Art Deco, who, in their day, reinterpreted the Louis XV, Louis XVI, and Directoire styles with their own cutting-edge techniques.
