2Modern Design Brief
Trends & Events
Last week was a whirlwind which included an array of strange occurrences. Most enjoyable of all the week's events was a trip to the ICFF while in NY.
A recurring theme with many new products was 'shiny, blingy, reflective and acrylic…often these were paired with organic use of materials.
A modern fusion of earthy objects and cosmopolitan flair…featured on Cool Hunting.
I can't stop thinking about this chair. Not a 2010 introduction but a masterpiece worth repeating. The Vegetal Chair. The artist comments and inspiration are worth reading. Check the 2009 'Projects' list.
Graypants, an enchanting line of lighting using discarded cardboard was exhibiting again this year. The line captures my attention with its unique designs and 're-use' story.
I found a line that really impressed me, Studio Dunn. Especially interesting were the Cumberland Lights. The collection includes urban luminaries and beautifully crafted furniture with an understated elegance.
