They come in three sizes (3&#215;3’, 4&#215;4’ and 5&#215;5’) with keyholes on the back for easy hanging. All you need to do is decide on your spacing preference between each square.

Bec Brittain x John Hogan Collaboration

                                <a href="https://www.becbrittain.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Bec Brittain</a> x <a href="http://www.johnhogandesigns.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">John Hogan</a> is a collaboration that is the result of a series of responses to each others&#8217; work, both technically and aesthetically. The collection is on view for NYCxDESIGN until Friday, May, 25th 2018 at <a href="https://goo.gl/maps/eh6DvnFz9y52" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Bec Brittain&#8217;s showroom</a>.
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.

Mattias Stenberg’s On Point & Carry On Make Perfect Informal Office Seating

                                With offices going more towards open floor plans that allow employees to collaborate, having pieces of furniture that allow for that is key. It also makes sense to incorporate pieces that can easily be moved around for meetings or for overall growth. <a href="https://www.mattiasstenberg.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mattias Stenberg</a> has nailed just that with two designs for <a href="https://www.offecct.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Offecct</a> that offer workers informal workspaces that can be changed up. First are the <a href="https://www.offecct.com/product/on-point/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">On Point</a> powered tables which allow for meetings while also having a central spot for plants, and then the <a href="https://www.offecct.com/product/carry-on-stool/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Carry On</a> stools which provide quick additional seating when needed.
The On Point tables are designed to work in office or public spaces or even airports as a way to provide informal workspaces wherever needed. The large tabletop is enough space for up to eight people to work or give plenty of room for just a few. In the center, the On Point table is

The collection consists of six modules – one left and one right sofa, a lounge chair, an ottoman, coffee table, and side table – that can be rearranged into the perfect setup.
The bases of each piece rest at the same level to create a linear and modern feel. The powder coated aluminum frames have tilted backrests for relaxation that appear visually light while the dark gray upholstered cushions suggest comfort.

Tom Dixon’s Plans for His New Showroom in New York’s Soho Design District

Spread out across 6,700 and two separate floors, the showroom operates as a storefront for Tom Dixon’s growing catalogue of lighting, furniture, home decor and accessories but Dixon has bigger plans for it. The space will also act as multi-disciplinary platforms for innovation in design. That means you can expect unique events like the Flash Factory pop-up (where visitors can take home their own limited edition Etch Light after learning how exactly Tom Dixon manufactures each one), speaking engagements on the topic of current + emerging trends in design, or, like last week, an intriguing black banquet serving black bread and black meringue to celebrate the unveiling of the Black Collection.

FILAMENTO: An Illuminated Sculpture Made from Glass by Mayice

The undulating fixture displays how light travels from end to end through concave and convex glass.
Made from a single piece of glass, the fixture’s form almost disappears when lit, revealing the filament of light that beams horizontally from each end. When the light is off, it becomes a sculptural piece of art that can be used indoors or outdoors. Photos by Pablo Gomez Ogando.

Emanuele Magini’s Anish Hides a Chair Within Its Circular Frame

At first glance, the piece appears to be an oversized circular frame with fabric, perhaps a sculpture, but upon closer inspection, a clever chair is revealed.
The metal frame supports a ring of elasticized fabric with a seat hidden behind it. The design is meant to welcome the user while also creating a sense of separation with its large back. Some might be confused by it while others will attempt to investigate what it is and when they do, they’ll find a seat waiting for them.

Nordic-Inspired 89 Wall Hangers by Eduardo Cámara and Patricia Ibáñez

                                Inspired by Nordic design, the <a href="http://eduardocamara.es/portfolio/89"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">89</a> wall hanger adds a new twist to traditional wall hooks. The minimalist hooks, designed by <a href="http://eduardocamara.es/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Eduardo Cámara</a> and <a href="https://patriciaib.es/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Patricia Ibáñez</a>, are made from beech wood where the grain and its change in direction reflect a simple yet striking visual effect.
The designers chose beech wood as the material for its ability to be manipulated into the hook’s twisted shape while also being strong and durable once finished. 89 is both functional and decorative so it can be used on any wall individually or in groups. 89 debuted at Ventura Future 2018 in Milan.

                                Celestial phenomenon isn&#8217;t just reserved for the outdoors. To celebrate their 10th year in business, <a href="https://graypants.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Graypants</a> is debuting an entirely new product line to their existing lighting collection, the <a href="https://graypants.com/products/chrona/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Chrona</a> series, that&#8217;s inspired by the phosphorescent envelope found around stars. The new Chrona lights cast a diffused glow from the ring of warm light that encases the thin, spun brass or steel discs.
The series is available in different diameters ranging from 6 to 17 inches and can be hung horizontally or vertically. Because of its robust design, Chrona can be clustered together to create a stellar installation of constellations, or by itself as a singular star. To learn more about the Chrona series, visit Graypants.

The collection lacks any type of nails or screws and instead relies on the mastery of this fading technique to intricately weave joints together.
Created by master craftsmen in Guangzhou, China, Opening abolishes any stigma surrounding the “Made in China” stereotype by showcasing the expertise and skill that’s involved with using the sun mao technique. All the wood is finished with house-made tung oil and the full grain vegetable-tanned leather is sourced from a family-owned tannery in Italy, another example of Sun at Six’s commitment to working with master artisans with a deep understanding for their craft. Overall, the collection evokes a contemporary aesthetic with an emphasis on considered living and timeless sensibilities. To learn more about the collection

Society6’s posters are printed on 100lb smooth gloss paper which ensures that your art will be vibrant in color and sharp in details. They come in one size only (18” x 24”) which is definitely large enough to give that blank empty wall a pop of color. I’m kind of eyeing this Not Today Satan poster for my office (lol) or this Spring Monstera poster as part of a gallery wall at my entryway. The new Wood Wall Art is unique in that they are a multi-piece design, composed of nine Baltic birch squares. You can space each piece according to your own liking (how much negative space is “perfect” is a whole other discussion) and there are keyholes in the back of each

The collection includes a coffee table and bar stool designed by <a href="http://msds-studio.ca/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">MSDS</a>, a stackable side table by <a href="http://benkicic.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ben Kicic</a> and <a href="http://jamiewolfond.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Jamie Wolfond</a>, a table lamp and sconce by <a href="http://www.ferreolbabin.fr/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ferréol Babin</a>, and a large-scale pendant light by <a href="http://www.earnestly.org/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Earnest Studio</a>.
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. The 6063 coffee table (below) continues the design language of the original 6063 stool and maintains its lightweight construction. Lily Table, by Ben Kicic and Jamie Wolfond, is a lightweight and stackable side table constructed of aluminum. Due to its cantilevered silhouette, the side table can be easily pulled up against a sofa or lounge chair, providing the user with a mobile workstation or a

Kettal Releases the Patricia Urquiola Designed Vimini Collection

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/kettal-releases-the-patricia-urquiola-designed-vimini-collection/kettel-patricia-urquiola-1-vimini/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/Kettel-Patricia-Urquiola-1-Vimini-810x561.jpg" alt="Kettal Releases the Patricia Urquiola Designed Vimini Collection" /></a>
                                After a conversation <a href="http://www.patriciaurquiola.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Patricia Urquiola</a> had regarding Danish designer Nanna Ditzel and her <a href="https://www.kettal.com/en/particular/blogpost/kettaleditsthebasketchairbynannaditzel/N/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Basket chair</a> from the 1950s, she designed the <a href="https://www.kettal.com/en/particular/blogpost/viminidepatriciaurquiolaen/N/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Vimini</a> outdoor collection for <a href="https://www.kettal.com/en/particular/index/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Kettal</a> with the hope that their similarities might conjure up feelings of home. Overall, the collection is modern with moments of tradition that make it feel like an &#8220;object of memory&#8221;.
The basket-like structures of the seating inspired the Vimini name, which is Italian for ‘wicker’, as well as rhyming with Bimini, an island that Urquiola enjoys. The pieces feature wooden frames with woven wicker basket-like seats that hold cushions for additional comfort. The collection includes sofas, dining chairs, and side tables.

What Happens When Seth Rogen Partners with Bower Studios? The Psychedelic Atlas Mirror

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/what-happens-when-seth-rogen-partners-with-bower-studios-the-psychedelic-atlas-mirror/atlas-mirror-seth-rogen-bower-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/Atlas-Mirror-Seth-Rogen-Bower-1-810x738.jpg" alt="What Happens When Seth Rogen Partners with Bower Studios? The Psychedelic Atlas Mirror" /></a>
                                The <a href="https://offsite.sightunseen.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Sight Unseen OFFSITE</a> exhibition is set to launch later this week and this year they&#8217;re adding something a little different to the mix. They&#8217;ve paired up 13 designers with 13 creatives and invited them to create a functional object together as part of <a href="https://fieldstudies.cargocollective.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Field Studies</a>. One of those partnerships brings together Brooklyn&#8217;s <a href="http://bower-studios.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Bower Studio</a> and the multi-hyphenate <a href="https://www.instagram.com/sethrogen/?hl=en"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Seth Rogen</a> who joined forces to design the <a href="https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/mirrors/wall-mirrors/atlas-mirror-bower-seth-rogen-mirrored-glass-enamel-paint-walnut/id-f_10711801/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Atlas Mirror</a>.
The globe-like Atlas Mirror pays homage to a handful of Rogen’s favorite things – vibrant colors in street art and 80’s pop culture, like those airbrushed Hypercolor t-shirts. The mirror’s 3D effect comes from the colorful gradations hand-painted behind the curved pieces of mirror which create a psychedelic feel, especially when viewing your own broken reflection. While Rogen’s probably best known as an actor, director, screenwriter, and producer, he’s also a guy with a contagious laugh (listen to his Howard Stern interviews!

10 Modern Tile Options from Coverings 2018

                                It&#8217;s been <a href="https://design-milk.com/12-favorite-tile-designs-coverings-2014/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">awhile</a> since we&#8217;ve taken in <a href="http://www.coverings.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Coverings</a> so we headed to Atlanta last week to check out everything that&#8217;s new in the tile and stone scene. And while you may just think of beige and white tiles that fill your showers, bathroom floors, and backsplashes, there&#8217;s an entire world out there of tiles in a million colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes that could easily blow your mind as well as your budget if you&#8217;re not careful. It&#8217;s impossible to share everything but we managed to narrow it down to 10 modern tile options from Coverings 2018 for you to check out.

Their large slab terrazzo tile looks like one big confetti party and we like it.

Kiki van Eijk and Joost van Bleiswijk are the Dutch designers behind Kiki & Joost, an Eindhoven-based studio where the duo creates work together, as well as individually. They moved into their industrial space about a year ago, a move not surprising as they’re well-versed in studio moves from their 17 plus years partnered up. Their varied processes and aesthetics are seen throughout their work, which can be viewed on display in their space, showing just how well their diverse designs work together. In this month’s Where I Work, the pair sits down to share a look inside their eclectic studio as well as a glimpse into how they work. What is your typical work style? We have a big workshop where we go every day, we try to give ourselves a schedule and go back home to friends and family. But ideas don’t have a schedule and
