A muted color scheme lets the vaguely pixelated pattern of Patricia Urquiola’s large-form ceramic slabs shine—–figuratively. The bas-relief appears to be pliable, but in reality the rock-hard surface is built tough enough for high-traffic floors or accent walls.
Matt Gagnon spent five days as window dressing during Design Week. The designer stood in the front display at the Future Perfect shop in NoHo, treating passersby to a live demonstration as he created his signature Prototype lamps out of materials such as wool yarn, cotton rope, and surgical tubing.
This rough-hewn lamp may look like a brutalist’s best friend, but it’s really more like an eco-lover’s dream. The blocky fixture is constructed from simple paper pulp, making the deceptively delicate piece a recyclable illuminator.
Today, we kicked off this year’s annual Dwell on Design at the LA Convention Center, which will continue through Sunday, June 26th. Though we’ve been hosting this extensive event for years, this time around is particularly special.
