This year’s premier design event, Salone del Mobile in Milan, will be hosting a very special exhibition titled “Where Architects Live”. The exhibition will provide a unique peek inside the homes of serious design royalty – think Zaha, Libeskind, Chipperfield, Shigeru Ban etc. I know what you’re thinking – they really should have called it “Where STARchitects Live”. As much as it would’ve been really fun to see mediocre furniture and average homes (the reality of many designers and architects I know), I hate to disappoint you – these houses are pretty sexy. No popcorn ceilings, Ikea desks, stained rugs and hand-me-down sofas to be seen here. No sir. It’s all pretty dandy in the land(y) of rockstar architects. Let’s take a closer look.
The world’s largest meeting place for Scandinavian design – Stockholm Furniture Fair 2014 took place between 3rd and 9th February, marking the end of the third major design event on the world design calendar. Here is a selection of Top 10 products that caught our eye this year.
It’s a busy start on the design circuit with fairs & events raging left, right and centre. First there was IMM Cologne, Maison et Objet is literally just behind us, while Stockholm Furniture Fair is happening as we speak. But how to keep up with it all? Never fear, Yellowtrace is here! So let’s not beat around the bush – this post is dedicated to the best new gear unveiled at Maison&Objet design fair held in Paris, between 24th and 28th January 2014.
The first major show of the year on the busy annual design circuit, IMM Cologne 2014, is already behind us. The fair presented a whole range of products and trends that will help shape the furniture and interiors for the coming year. The German Design Council organized the 11th edition of the annual D3 Contest at IMM, which showcased the works of design students & up-and-coming talent. Unsurprisingly, this show was of particular interest to us.

I’m so excited to share with you one of the latest projects designed by Yellowtrace – the Gumtree Garden pop-up bar which took place over just 4 nights during November. This very special pop-up bar was built in less than 48 hours, featuring items sourced on Gumtree in the local Sydney area. Situated in the heart of The Rocks, on Sydney’s oldest cobblestoned lane-way – Kendall Lane, the pop-up served fine Australian beer and wine and a delicious menu created by celebrity chef Hayden Quinn…
