                                Brooklyn-based <a href="http://www.casakids.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Casa Kids</a> has carved out a solid niche in the children&#8217;s furniture market with their clever and practical solutions that include loft beds, bunk beds, cribs, desks, and storage pieces. The designs are modern and fresh, which means the adults will love them, but they&#8217;re also playful and fun so the kids will enjoy them. Along with their regular line of furniture, they design custom rooms where they make the most of every square inch. One such room is this cozy, narrow bedroom in New York City that needed to house three siblings. Seems impossible, right? Well, Casa Kids made it happen with a custom <a href="http://www.casakids.com/other-rooms/three-siblings"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">triple bunk bed</a> any kid, or kids, would die to have.
The design spans three beds high and comes complete with two staircases filled with drawers, plus two cabinets and five drawers on the front. The white structure features accents with a premium walnut

Maayan Zusman Designs a Modern Medical Office That Won’t Make You Cringe

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/maayan-zusman-designs-a-modern-medical-office-that-wont-make-you-cringe/medical-clinic-maayan-zusman-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/07/Medical-Clinic-Maayan-Zusman-1-810x540.jpg" alt="Maayan Zusman Designs a Modern Medical Office That Won&#8217;t Make You Cringe" /></a>
                                Let&#8217;s be honest. Most of us would rather avoid medical offices, not just because it means having to go see a doctor, but because most of them are bland, boring, and downright depressing. Thanks to <a href="https://www.maayanzusman.co.il/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Maayan Zusman</a>, this <a href="https://www.maayanzusman.co.il/kikar-hamedina-clinic"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">plastic surgery clinic</a> in Tel Aviv doesn&#8217;t fall into that sad category. Instead, the office offers a fresh approach, which made the doctor happy and his patients as well.
Instead of those uncomfortable chairs that awkwardly face each other in the waiting room, Zusman designed a dual sided structure down the middle with seats facing in opposite directions. This offers patients both additional privacy and connection. The upholstered cushions feature soft fabrics in fun colors like teal and mauve that are carried throughout the office. The floors are darkly stained and paired with white walls and cabinetry for a clean, modern aesthetic. Photography by Itay Benit.

Wardrobe.NYC’s “Anti–fast Fashion” Sport Collection

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/wardrobe_nyc-sport-collection/wardrobenyc-sportcapsule-8/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/07/wardrobenyc-sportcapsule-8-810x577.jpg" alt="Wardrobe.NYC&#8217;s &#8220;Anti–fast Fashion&#8221; Sport Collection" /></a>
                                As someone who has long harbored dreams of cleaning out their closet and starting completely anew with a capsule wardrobe – a collection of essential, complementary, and interchangeable pieces of clothing that work together no matter their combination – <a href="https://www.wardrobe.nyc/collections/02-sport-man"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Wardrobe.NYC&#8217;s</a> 10-piece set Sport collection seems an awful temptation to turn a musing into reality.
Conceived as an e-commerce-only venture by designer Josh Goot and stylist Christine Centenera, Wardrobe.NYC launched with an introductory made in Italy, 8-piece collection of tailored silhouettes cut from a minimalist eye. The “anti–fast fashion” ethos of the original collection for fashionistas looking to simplify their lives continues into the realm of athleisure wear for both men and women. The second round comes by way of a monochromatic, pre-packaged 10-piece collection priced at $1,500. To keep things simple and costs down, shoppers are limited to only choosing a size per item; no additional colors or styles are offered.

The Dutch design duo created the Grid Knit pillows with their signature style of visually enticing colors and geometric patterns made using the computerized knitting machines at the TextielLab. The colorful &#8216;grids,&#8217; which kind of resemble a chain link fence, are made from various colors, including fluorescent ones, that are knitted onto soft 100% merino wool that makes up the pillows.
Since the label had worked with the designers before, they invited them back and the cushions will be a part of the ‘Simply Scandinavian – Nordic Design 1945-2018’ exhibition. The Grid Knit pillows come in four color ways and in two sizes, and will be available in October at the TextielShop in the museum, online, and various international shops.

This week’s Friday Five lands us in New York City, spotlighting Jeff Johnson who began his career as an architect after earning a BA in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a M.Arch with honors from Pratt Institute. After his schooling, he headed to the Netherlands for four years heading up large scale commercial projects in Europe and Asia, specifically the HVA Amsterdam and The Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore. Johnson’s architecture career has landed him at prominent architecture firms including UNStudio, ASYMPTOTE, and MESH, all preparing him for his current venture as the Creative Director and Co-Founder of The Arrivals. Johnson launched the NYC-based outerwear brand along with Kal Vepuri in Fall 2013 after his searches for design-focused outerwear that could stand up to multiple Amsterdam winters came up short. Once he landed back in NYC, he gathered a team of people and set

A Modern, Modular Extension Added to a Weatherboard House in Melbourne

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/a-modern-modular-extension-added-to-a-weatherboard-house-in-melbourne/ivanhoe-extension-modscape-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/07/Ivanhoe-extension-Modscape-1-810x546.jpg" alt="A Modern, Modular Extension Added to a Weatherboard House in Melbourne" /></a>
                                Around the back of a weatherboard house in Melbourne is a new, two-story modular extension, named <a href="https://www.modscape.com.au/homes/ivanhoe-extension/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ivanhoe</a>, designed by <a href="https://www.modscape.com.au/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Modscape</a> to transform the lives of the homeowners. Instead of moving to a new house to meet their needs, the growing family chose to add the light-filled extension that visually connects the interior with the private backyard.
Floor-to-ceiling windows offer unobstructed views of the landscaped yard and neighboring trees. The dining room benefits from cornerless sliding glass doors that make it feel like you’re eating outside. The extension is clad in sustainably-sourced Blackbutt wood and Colorbond Diversaclad which result in a beautiful contrast that’s elevated by the curved battened screen. Besides adding modern character to the home, it provides shade from the sun, as well as privacy for the upstairs master suite. A new, double-height entryway was created in the middle of the home right between the new and existing

                                We still have another two and a half months before the official end of summer – consider this your wake-up call to finally make time to head to the beach if you’ve been putting it off! To make sure you’re staying cool and hydrated during these warmer months, <a href="https://society6.com/?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Society6</a> launched <a href="https://society6.com/can-coolers?curator=designmilk" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">can coolers</a> to keep your drinks ice cold when you’re on the go!
With their wrap-around artwork and double-walled stainless steel construction, these coolers are both eye-catching and practical. Just drop your 12oz can in, twist on the plastic top, and sip until finished. I would use them even if I’m not heading outside (I have a tendency to forget I have an opened cold drink and only realize it when it’s turned lukewarm, yuck) and they make a great addition to throw into any goody bag you’re making for parties! Here are a few of my favorite can cooler

Louis Poulsen Celebrates 60 Years of a Modernist Classic

Movie and television cameos are frequent. In the pantheon of lighting, undoubtedly one or two PH 5s would be found glowing overhead.
In celebration of the design’s 60th anniversary, Louis Poulsen invited Design Milk to tour their factory in Vejen, Jutland, Denmark, affording us the opportunity to learn more about the light’s storied past, relevant present, and the planned future of the company’s most popular lighting design…with even a chance to build one.

The Brew Bottle is made from BPA-free, double-wall borosilicate glass that helps maintain the temperatures of both hot and cold beverages. The reusable bottle is outfitted with a stainless steel filter that can be positioned in two ways – one for pour over brewing and the other for immersion brewing. The mesh filter prevents coffee and tea sediment from entering your brew while letting natural aromatics through for the perfect taste. The best part is that it all happens within the same

Hawaiian Hospitality Gets a Neon Makeover at the New Shoreline Hotel in Waikiki

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/hawaiian-hospitality-gets-neon-makeover-new-shoreline-hotel-waikiki/shorelinehotel_interiors_highres-26a/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/07/ShorelineHotel_Interiors_highres-26a-810x569.jpg" alt="Hawaiian Hospitality Gets a Neon Makeover at the New Shoreline Hotel in Waikiki" /></a>
                                Designing for hospitality in Hawaii can often lean very cliché. I bet you&#8217;re already thinking of lush green Monstera and palm leaves, pink bulbous hibiscus flowers, cowrey shells and prints reminiscent of kitschy Hawaiian shirts, am I right? Not that those aren&#8217;t iconic motifs of Hawaii but hotels that incorporate these elements as the main focal points in their interior design run the risk of looking like every other hotel on the island, aka boring and overdone.
Dan Mazzarini of BHDM Design made sure you would never use those words at their recently completed project, the brand new Shoreline Hotel Waikiki. An explosion of neon and nature, this 56,000-square-foot, 135-room boutique hotel takes the concept of Hawaiian-inspired design and transforms it into a modern day interpretation that still feels authentic. Guests check in at the open-air lobby and pass through ever-changing backdrops of multi-colored fluorescent hallways and stairwells of tropical wallpaper prints.

4 Stellar Artworks in NYC This Summer

                                Summer is the “off season” for the contemporary art world in New York – a time when galleries close on weekends and organize exhibitions that tend to be smaller (no <a href="https://design-milk.com/lasers-gallery-rita-mcbrides-particulates/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">laser-rooms</a>), but more experimental. Here are our top four picks for this summer that are 100% worth visiting on your lunch break.

Grant Worth, Season’s Premier 2018

Grant Worth’s sculptures at the Feature Hudson Foundation in the Lower East Side are technicolor rainbows of an element called Bismuth, in the form of a modified Oscar. If you’re unfamiliar with the material, check out YouTube for a demonstration on how to melt and crystalize this brittle, low melting-point metal. This is the first time I’ve seen it used in fine art, and it excels far beyond a “material gimmick”, with mysterious complexity: playing off the body, celebrity culture, and display

Yves Behar and Amir Mortazavi Launch 2nd CANOPY Shared Workspace Location

                                Shared workspaces have been popping up all over the world as more people work remotely and they&#8217;ve become incredibly appealing making joining one a no-brainer. One such establishment is <a href="https://canopy.space/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">CANOPY</a> Jackson Square, a serene coworking space in San Francisco designed by <a href="https://fuseproject.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Yves Behar</a> and Amir Mortazavi of <a href="http://m-projects.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">M-PROJECTS</a>.

The soothing color palette pays homage to the surrounding neighborhoods of North Beach, Jackson Square, the Financial District, and Chinatown.
