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.
Hello possums! Welcome to the February 2014 edition of Yellowtrace Spotlight – the first one for the year. Boom! In this month’s news you can read about Dion Lee’s first stand alone concept store in Sydney by Akin Creative, Neometro’s Heritage Redevelopment in Fitzroy (VIC), Art Wall by Paul Smith for Maharam Digital Projects, new furniture by young designers STUDIOLAV and XYZ Integrated Architecture, The Edge Design Competition and Comic Book Launch by Matt Huynh.
David Derksen’s Oscillation Plates are decorated under the swing of a pendulum, activated first by a human, then taken over by gravity.
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.
Light Container by Spanish designer Martín Azúa is a floating light suspended inside a painted metal basket. “Light is immaterial, but at the same time lamps are also objects. In this case we treat light as something with weight and volume,” says Azúa.
Two Circles Chair by Kebei Li is an “aesthetic study of the contrast between a line and a surface”. Using only rectilinear and circular elements, Li created a highly rational, logical, and mathematical geometry. The designer chose a deep shade of navy to further “flatten” the appearance of the chair, giving the object an almost two-dimentional quality.
