    ‘In Vain’ Marble Trestle Table by Ben Storms.

    25th June

    Oh lordy! The extreme levels of awesome are making me hot under the collar. Someone bring me a glass of water. Please. No, but seriously – could this be the hottest trestle table you’ve ever seen? Quite possibly, and you know it. The man behind this super beautiful product is a young Belgian designer Ben Storms.

    Contemporary Israeli designers Noam Dover and Yoav Reches are a duo with versatile skills.

    Rabari Rug Collection by Doshi Levien for Nanimarquina.

    16th June

    I’ll preface this post by saying that this was one of my Top 5 favourite products from Milan Design Week. Yep, 100% – these are that good. Designed by Doshi Levien for Spanish rug maker Nanimarquina, Rabari rug collection evokes “the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India.” I am a real sucker for projects which clearly reference designers’ past experiences, memories, ethnic origins and iconography, particularly when brought into a contemporary context such as this. For me, this is an example of design authenticity at it’s best.

    Pierre Charpin’s Installation at Apartment N°50 by Le Corbusier // Marseille, France.

    11th June

    Within the iconic Cité radieuse in Marseilles designed by Le Corbusier, Apartment N°50 was scrupulously protected in its original 1952 state, classified as a “Historic Monument” in 1995. It opens regularly to the public during the summer months to exhibit the work of a few of the most talented contemporary international designers within this outstanding space. A short series of scenographic installations has been realised over the years; Jasper Morrison (2008), Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (2010) Konstantin Grcic (2012), and now for its fourth session, the French designer Pierre Charpin.



    Shoe Stool by Koichi Futatsumata.

    5th June

    I can’t say I ever thought we’d be blogging about a shoe stool here on Yellowtrace, if ya know what I’m sayin’. But when a piece of furniture is this beautiful, we are left with no choice. This gorgeous stool was created by Japanese designer Koichi Futatsumata for a fashion brand FUJITO as a limited edition item for the brand’s 10th anniversary. The stool was re-released by Opinion Ciatti and it was exhibited this year at Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
