San Vitale Console Table - Julia Eliseeva

"Creating the concept of the console table, the designer was inspired by the drawings of Byzantine architecture. According to the designer, the outlines of the plans for the buildings of that architectural period look extremely contemporary. The design of the console table is based on plan and interior of the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. Its shape and volume are determined by the plan, and its colour and choice of materials are associated with the interior decoration of the Basilica. Capacious contemporary design excluding off all that is superfluous, but containing the historical heritage." - julia eliseeva

Oh Joy Tile Collection - Joy Cho/Clé

"I have always been obsessed with tile. Both the simple tile in repeat that becomes a permanent wall in a bathroom as well as complex color-filled tile that you might see on the floor of a trendy restaurant. As a lover and creator of patterns in my work, to me, tile has always offered a fun and modern way to introduce pattern into the home. When working on a recent renovation project that required a lot of tile, i wanted to bring oh joy in the the space through our use of tile.

Pantone's Colour Of The Year 2018

"Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets. Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection. “The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute." - pantone

Pop Perf Group - Eric Trine

The Pop Perf group originated from a commission for a "C" Style table for a commercial client. The client wanted something different than all the other C tables in the market - most of which use square tubing, and a wood top. They also wanted perforated steel - something I've enjoyed working with for years. Through that commission, we established a visual language using perforated steel, and a bent arch motif. We applied the language to side tables, and a bunch of small accessories including: toilet paper holders, hand towel racks, and bookends." - eric trine

Kubison - Levantin Design

"Combining the latest trend of graphic design art direction, with the basic elements of graphic philosophy of Suprematism from the early 20th century quadrangle, a cross and a circle, we have tried to move from a two-dimensional plane of the characteristic features of the two styles, integrating them into one another, creating an abstract image into three-dimensional reality. «KUBIS» - is a way devoid of all content, which can not give meaning to or out of my head." - levantin design

Credenza - Patricia Urquiola + Federico Pepe

"Credenza, which in Italian means both a cupboard and one’s belief. It’s a series of furniture in stained glass that is inspired by the windows of holy sites as the ones created by Gerhard Richter for Cologne’s Cathedral. Spazio Pontaccio invited Patricia Urquiola and Federico Pepe to recover the symbolic value of stained glass windows transforming it into contemporary pieces of furniture. The meeting between an antique sacred inspiration and its reinterpretation in the form of design is as well reflected in the production process of the collection. Credenza – characterized by contemporary patterns, colours and materials – is produced in Italy by artisans skilled in the thousand-years old manual technique of stained glass, generally used for the architectures and the decorations of the churches. Besides its functionality, the elements of the collection designed by Patricia Urquiola and Federico Pepe (cupboards, screens and low tables) get in touch with the space also thanks to the light that passes through each element." - patricia urquiola + federico pepe
