New York Design Week 2014
Last month we finally made it to our first New York Design Week. An action packed few days had us running around the city from the moment we woke up everyday. Here are some of our highlights that we wanted to share…
Lighting designer Mary Wallis presented Eadie above, and the Melbourne Light below at the annual ICFF at the Jacob Javits Convention Centre.
Bec Brittain’s work is slowly making its way over to Europe. We discovered her a couple of years ago, of course we’ve totally fallen for her beautiful Mahedron pendants shown here.
Apparatus, we love them. A studio born out of playful experimentation with vintage lighting components, this brand based in New York work with aged brass, glass, leather, horse hair, and porcelain to name just a few materials used to make their beautiful creations. Thrilled to have discovered them at the ICFF.
Do you remember the Adolf Loos light at the recent Phillips Auction? Austrian brand Woka now hold the licence for his designs, so all is not lost. A Woka Knize pendant could still be yours!
Jamie Harris Studio presented some beautiful pendants, very chalet appropriate don’t you think?
The Harper Chair was designed by Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance for Bernhardt Design. Presented also at the ICFF, the design was inspired by the designers quintessential view of America, the view of a rocking chair sitting on an open porch.
Duchaufour-Lawrance used classic American woods, maple for the spindles and cherry for the structure.
“The contrast between the two woods enables you to follow the form of the chair and gives an idea of dynamism and even aerodynamism; which is appropriate for a chair that is about motion. In addition to this particular harmony, the other special aspect of Harper is that you can experience something different from every perspective, changing and becoming something new.” NDL
We loved walking along the Highline on Saturday morning, such a beautiful spot don’t you think?
On to Wanted NY on 11th Avenue between 27th and 28th Street. An amazing program of innovative installations, pop-up stores, student workshops, international and local design brands in one space. The alternative to ICFF, there were some major design brands exhibiting this year. We have to keep some things up our sleeve though!
On to some culture, we hopped in a cab to the Guggenheim to explore the Italian Futurism exhibition on the Museum Mile.
Check back in a couple of days for our next NYC updates!
