The shelves are assembled sans tools and come flat-packed for convenient shipping and storage when needed. The outer framework and folded steel shelves snap together via plastic clips.
Inspired by inexpensive wire shelving often seen in dorms and first apartments, Gradient presents the idea of easy-to-assemble furniture in a more architectural format. Horizontal elements increase in frequency from top to bottom, giving the design its namesake “gradient” effect, while keeping items contained within the shelf. The sides and back of the shelf are secured by extruded ABS plastic clips, allowing sheet steel shelves to rest inside the structure. The result is a design that can be assembled in less than five minutes by one person, without the use of a tiny allen wrench. Photography by Blaine Davis.

The connection of rigid and soft elements displays an attention to detail explored by master craftsmanship.
This new collection explores seamless integration of lighting to architecture via recessed and invisible components and perfects the control of dim-to-warm LEDs with smooth precision dimming. Named Vitis after the latin origin of vineyard, the gesture of this statement chandelier connotes a vine laden with orbs of fruit. Given the importance of the elegant and smooth draped gesture, a flat and translucent electrical cord was created after weeks of exploration and development of an innovative internal flexible structure.

The mother occupies the first floor, while her son, his wife, and their child are on the second and third floors. The third floor was handled as a single volume containing private areas such as the master and child’s bedrooms and the bathroom. The first floor was also treated as a single volume offset from the third floor volume so as to open up space for a terrace on the first floor roof. In between these two volumes, the second floor is bounded by two continuous surfaces that fit together like puzzle pieces, embracing an open living room that is integrated

Overlapping semi-translucent curtains were in constant movement due to the soft breeze that together with the sunlight created dramatic shades of metallic patterns, glass surfaces and water along the floors. Accompanied by the experience of walking through the exhibition in a soft zigzag route is a mystical smell of wood and a dynamic sound installation by Matias Bieniaszewski, who converted the sounds of the designed objects into a musical piece.

The pieces were conceived by mixing 19th century Parisian furniture with elements found in mid-century design, embodying refined forms with a quiet sophistication.
Each piece is handcrafted with careful consideration for subtle details, with tailoring expressed through hand-sewn stitching, not unlike couturier craftsmanship. The manufacturers wanted to create pieces that transform not only the space, but how users interact with the piece. Producing the pieces serves as both a vehicle of artistic expression and an ancient trade that remains embedded in Dmitriy & Co’s heritage. The pieces are all handmade in Long Island City.

The collection explores the nature of light, color, scale, and context through the expression of ‘objecthood’ found in the Minimal Art movement. Each light is outfitted with an optical grade resin lens framed by anodized bent aluminum that are anodized or stained with a hand-applied finish. As described by the designers, “The singular line of the lens is echoed in the simple rectangular frame, conjoining clarity of form with a soft and expansive colored light to create an impactful, yet unobtrusive, environment.” The current collection is available in a variety of formats, including wall-mounted, flush-mounted, or ceiling-suspended.

The theme for this exhibition was focused around chores, conventionally understood as tedious, burdensome work to be avoided.
The designers wanted to reexamine the concepts associated with the activities and tools surrounding household tasks, and proposed a renewed sense of engagement between humans, objects and their environment. The designers were tasked to explore the virtues of focused work and cleanliness that the Shakers regarded as a path to enlightenment. The collection includes 50+ new objects created by 26 international designers. Hands to Work is curated by Studio Gorm, Christopher Specce and Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, with overall creative direction by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio.

The space is a lively social gathering destination that defines the Southern lifestyle. The project is a daring transition from a magazine to a physical space.
The interior is characterized by an elegant mix of old and new representing the first brick-and-mortar hospitality experience for the publication, inspired by a passion for great food and drink. The club offers an all-day menu that features updated versions of Southern favorites. Context played an important role in Workstead’s approach, and wanted to transform the magazine’s aesthetic into an environment that respects the brand, the location, and the space. Custom Workstead chandeliers and sconces illuminate the upholstered wall panels and ceilings of the dining room, which is composed mainly of oak and brass.

Hogan was inspired by celestial references from the Aries system, using the star as a reference for interacting and transforming natural light. For this particular collaboration he created lenses for a much smaller scale light source. In order to support Hogan’s reframed glass pieces, Brittain had to depart from the celestial aesthetic to a more architectural structure consisting of trusses and scaffolding in order to support the glass pieces. As a result, “each glass concept called for a totally different formal language to best highlight both the form of the glass and how it diffuses and refracts the light.” Photography by Lauren Coleman.

The 6063 bar stool by MSDS is a newly released bar height version of the original piece released last May. The piece combines traditional craftsmanship with sophisticated contemporary design.

Ocean Memories by Mathieu Lehanneur

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/ocean-memories-mathieu-lehanneur/oceanmemories_mathieulehanneur_7/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/oceanmemories_mathieulehanneur_7-810x567.jpg" alt="Ocean Memories by Mathieu Lehanneur" /></a>
                                <a title="Ocean Memories" href="http://www.mathieulehanneur.fr/project/ocean-memories"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ocean Memories</a> is a minimalist exhibition by Paris-based designer <a title="Mathieu Lehanneur" href="http://www.mathieulehanneur.fr/project/ocean-memories"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mathieu Lehanneur</a> on display at the <a title="Carpenter&#039;s Workshop Gallery" href="http://carpentersworkshopgallery.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Carpenters Workshop Gallery</a> in Paris. As the name suggests, the pieces have a wave-like surface that is created by the artist chipping blocks off the top of the marble and bronze tables using 3D software and machine cutting.
The tabletop is hand-polished to reveal a glossy finish, transitioning from a matte flat surface to a wavy glossy surface. The sculptures beautifully capture the turbulent nature of currents, while juxtaposing against a calm and serene surface. Designed digitally, the white and black marble blocks or polished bronze pieces reflect the environment and distort surrounding light. As described by the gallery, “Through this new collection, Mathieu Lehanneur plays a permanent balance between geometric and organic.”

Material Interiors Exhibition by Radnor

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/material-interiors-radnor/materialinteriors_radnor_3/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/materialinteriors_radnor_3-810x586.jpg" alt="Material Interiors Exhibition by Radnor" /></a>

The exhibition is taking place during New York Design Month that will launch the inaugural Radnor Made collection and introduce new works by Radnor represented designers.
The space, a two-bedroom residence, is the first residential condominium built on Bryant Park, one of the city’s most iconic green spaces. The exhibition is co-curated by Workstead balancing the functional and the iconic to express a materiality that is grounded in place. For this site-specific installation, Radnor and Workstead wanted to create a fully functional interior that would also respond to the existing details of The Bryant, most notably the distinctive herringbone oak floors and honed terrazzo borders.
