                                The <a href="http://www.petitefriture.com/eng/15/collection/produits/liste/?filtre_collection=72"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">WEEK-END</a> collection is a range of outdoor furniture designed by <a href="http://www.studiobrichetziegler.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Studio BrichetZiegler</a> for <a href="http://www.petitefriture.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Petite Friture</a>. The oval shapes of the backrests are filled with horizontal slats that are juxtaposed with the connected vertical slats to become the seat of the chair. The collection makes an overall graphic statement with the perpendicular stripes and the negative spaces they create.
The WEEK-END collection consists of 3 stacking chairs, including the Chair, Armchair, and Bridge, the stacking Bench, stacking High Stool, and multiple tables, including the Coffee Table, Square Table, 2 Rectangular Tables, and a High Bar Table. Basically everything you’d need to create various setups for any outdoor space. Each piece is lacquered aluminum and is available in five colors: Black, White, Ultramarine Blue, Matt bordeaux, and Yellow. Photos by Ola Rindal.

Bijou Lamp + Table by Sergey Makhno Architects

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/bijou-lamp-table-by-sergey-makhno-architects/bijou-lamptable-sergey-makhno-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/08/Bijou-lamptable-Sergey-Makhno-1-810x907.jpg" alt="Bijou Lamp + Table by Sergey Makhno Architects" /></a>
                                We&#8217;ve featured the <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/Sergey-Makhno/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">architectural and interior design work</a> of <a href="https://mahno.com.ua/en"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Sergey Makhno Architects</a> in the past and now the Ukrainian design firm is showing another side with their product designs, particularly the Bijou Lamp + Table, designed by Sergey Makhno and Igor Havrylenko. Composed of stone, marble, and steel, the combination piece takes on a sculptural feel with its elegant stem bisecting the stone base to curve up and hold its marble tabletop. The minimalist design pulls double duty with its reserved silhouette making it fit in to about any situation.
The steel stem is flexible, rotating 180 degrees so its integrated LED light can be directed where it’s needed. The floor lamp would work residing next to a sofa or chair, but also living beside a bed where it would double as a bedside table and reading light.

IKEA Launches GRATULERA Vintage Collection to Celebrate 75th Anniversary

They&#8217;re breaking the collection down into three time periods – 50-60s, 70-80s, and the 90-00s – which will launch on three separate dates in 2018. Each period is quite different but you&#8217;ll get a peek into IKEA&#8217;s past through its 7+ decades in business.
The 50-60s Edition launches this month with a series of classic pieces in darker woods that were a reflection of the times. The triangular LÖVBACKEN became the company’s first flat-packed product after an IKEA worker thought to remove a table’s legs to get it into his tiny car. Launching in October, the colorful 70-80s Edition is

Charlotte Kidger Creates 3D Objects Out of Polyurethane Foam Dust

                                London-based <a href="https://www.charlottekidger.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Charlotte Kidger</a> is a material designer who recently graduated from Central Saint Martins with an MA in Material Futures. Her work is process driven, exploring how to turn industrial waste materials into secondary raw materials to see if something new can be created. Through that exploration, Kidger created a durable composite material made with polyurethane foam dust that&#8217;s a by-product of CNC fabrication. Instead of that material going to a landfill, she&#8217;s able to cold cast it and create colorful 3D objects, like vessels and tables.
Kidger’s collection will go on display as part of the exhibition Material of the Year: Plastic, Beyond the Chipper during next month’s London Design Fair. Photography by Louise Oates.

It’s a Party with Sarah Gibson and Nicholas Karlovasitis’ Confetti Range for DesignByThem

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/party-sarah-gibson-nicholas-karlovasitis-confetti-range-designbythem/confetti-range-15/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/08/confetti-range-15-810x559.jpg" alt="It’s a Party with Sarah Gibson and Nicholas Karlovasitis’ Confetti Range for DesignByThem" /></a>
                                Any collection that’s able to find a way to reuse plastic to create functional furniture deserves a party. Designed by <a href="https://www.designbythem.com/collections/vendors?q=nicholas+karlovasitis+%26+sarah+gibson" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Sarah Gibson and Nicholas Karlovasitis</a> for <a href="https://www.designbythem.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">DesignByThem</a>, the new <a href="https://www.designbythem.com/collections/confetti" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Confetti Range</a> consists of tables, stools, benches, planters, armchairs, booths and lounges that use 100% recycled plastic, resulting in a collection that is fun and environmentally-friendly.
The recycled material is made up of 100% post-consumer and factory waste that is formed into tubes with no added fillers. The plastic components of each piece are extremely durable, easy to clean, and have a confetti-like pattern that we think can be seen as a modern, eco-friendly alternative to terrazzo. To see more of the Confetti Range, visit DesignByThem.

Mario Tsai’s Pig Side Table Was Inspired by the Piggy Bank

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/mario-tsais-pig-side-table-was-inspired-by-the-piggy-bank/pig-side-table-mario-tsai-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/08/Pig-side-table-Mario-Tsai-1-810x573.jpg" alt="Mario Tsai&#8217;s Pig Side Table Was Inspired by the Piggy Bank" /></a>
                                While on a trip to the metal market, designer <a href="http://www.mariotsai.studio/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mario Tsai&#8217;s</a> curiosity was piqued when he spotted stacks of thick aluminum tubes. He decided to purchase a 250mm diameter tube and when he stuffed his other purchases inside to carry, it reminded him of the ease of sliding a coin into a piggy bank. The <a href="http://www.mxobject.com/pig-side-table/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Pig Side Table</a> was designed with all that in mind.
The side table, designed for mx object, begins with the very tube that inspired it. Four legs were added, just like on a piggy bank, along with a circular surface to become a functional side table with a story. Not only does the aluminum tube hold books and other stuff, the tabletop offers additional space for a drink or tchotchkes, all while resembling a pig, or as Tsai says, “a pig with a hat.”

Aronson Woodworks Creates Unique Furniture That Highlights the Beauty of Wood Grain Patterns

Their custom finish called CLAIZE uses two or more opaque paint colors to completely cover a wooden surface and accentuate the wood’s natural grain pattern. While the application can be applied to any material with a grain, ash wood is most used for its superior grain contrast.
Using both modern machines and traditional hand tools and joinery techniques, the furniture created by Aronson Woodworks exemplifies the level of quality and excellence that can only be achieved through the time-honored principles of woodworking. The Iowa-based company also salvages lumber whenever possible by working with local tree care and removal companies in an effort to minimize valuable trees ending up in a landfill.

Hi Thanks Bye Is About to Launch Their Debut: Collection 0

                                Stein Wang and Topher Kong joined forces to establish <a href="http://www.hithanksbye.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Hi Thanks Bye</a>, a design studio based in Toronto, Canada, and the duo is set to launch their inaugural collection – Collection 0 – next month at the <a href="https://www.londondesignfair.co.uk/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">London Design Fair</a>. The collaboration brings forth a combination of &#8220;cultural and academic experiences and references&#8221; that the designers fleshed out to create their own collection of modern furnishings. The debut inspiration comes from a merging of Canadian landscapes with a Chinese aesthetic that results in a cohesive, six-piece collection of functional and versatile pieces.
The designers looked to their homeland of Canada with all of its natural beauty, like Algonquin Park, the Bruce Peninsula, and Fogo Island, and wanted to showcase that in the collection. They also found inspiration in traditional Chinese gardens that are full of rocks, plants, water, and structures. The monochromatic collection is made from powder-coated stainless steel

Confalonieri chose four metals for the table structures with each metal paired with a particular geometric form – copper (round with smoked glass), brass (square with extra clear glass), steel (oval with sea water glass), and nickel (octagonal with bronze glass) – each with a different color of glass perfectly set on top.

The Toco Table is composed of a cylindrical wooden base with a circular glass top that allows one to see through and appreciate the beauty of the wood below.
The glass appears to hover over the top of the domed wooden base with its only connection being a brass spacer detail. The Toco Tables come in various shapes and sizes allowing for different configurations if you place them together. The Toca Table made its debut last month at MADE São Paulo 2018.

Tokio is a modular seating system that appears to hover above the floor. The oversized seats offer comfort with low backs for optimal lounging. The overstuffed cushions offer a curvy yet sculpted appearance completely void of any hard corners or elements. The configuration can be decided on by the user, as there are plenty of options, from a freestanding island in the center of the room to a regular two- or three-seater sofa. The Infinity coffee table boasts a base inspired by the mathematical symbol for infinity, hence the table’s name.

A graduate from the Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) at Gothenburg University, Sweden, Zhang worked as a design assistant at the Marcel Wanders Studio before establishing her own studio in Bergen, Norway. We’re a fan of her work which is mostly defined by clean lines, spatial forms, and geometric elements. Take a look…
The Equant Suspension Lamp is as much a work of art as it is a functional fixture. Its unique form comes from the multiple elements that make it up: the half sphere that houses an LED light, the adjustable circular deflector that helps diffuse the light when swiveled, the black metal disc that holds the deflector in place, and the incomplete circular structure that holds it all together. The initials in the S.V. Side Table stands for Solid/Void, referencing the two halves of

                                While GAN has largely been known for their <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/GAN/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">playful rugs and modular seating options</a>, they&#8217;re expanding with the launch of their first outdoor collection with the hope of bringing indoor comfort to the outdoors. The <a href="https://www.gan-rugs.com/en/products/spaces/garden-layers-space/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Garden Layers</a> collection, designed by <a href="http://www.patriciaurquiola.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Patricia Urquiola</a>, was inspired by a visit to India and traditional Mughal culture and architecture. The gardens and terraces she saw jumpstarted the idea and the result is a series of rugs, mats, pillows, cushions, and the just released <a href="https://www.gan-rugs.com/en/products/spaces/garden-layers-space/gl-indian-beds/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Indian beds</a> and <a href="https://www.gan-rugs.com/en/products/spaces/garden-layers-space/gl-tables/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">side tables</a> to round things out.
The modular components are designed to be moved around to create the ultimate outdoor living room, with the bed offering additional comfort raised off the ground. The side tables bring another furniture element to the collection allowing users a place to rest a drink or book. The existing pillows, mattresses and rugs can be thrown into the mix to complete

                                While GAN has largely been known for their <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/GAN/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">playful rugs and modular seating options</a>, they&#8217;re expanding with the launch of their first outdoor collection with the hope of bringing indoor comfort to the outdoors. The <a href="https://www.gan-rugs.com/en/products/spaces/garden-layers-space/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Garden Layers</a> collection, designed by <a href="http://www.patriciaurquiola.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Patricia Urquiola</a>, was inspired by a visit to India and traditional Mughal culture and architecture. The gardens and terraces she saw jumpstarted the idea and the result is a series of rugs, mats, pillows, cushions, and the just released <a href="https://www.gan-rugs.com/en/products/spaces/garden-layers-space/gl-indian-beds/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Indian beds</a> and <a href="https://www.gan-rugs.com/en/products/spaces/garden-layers-space/gl-tables/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">side tables</a> to round things out.
The modular components are designed to be moved around to create the ultimate outdoor living room, with the bed offering additional comfort raised off the ground. The side tables bring another furniture element to the collection allowing users a place to rest a drink or book. The existing pillows, mattresses and rugs can be thrown into the mix to complete

The Danish architect and professor designed the collection in 1959 and almost six decades later the classic series looks as if it could have been designed yesterday. <a href="https://www.carlhansen.com/stories/indoor-outdoor-series-by-bodil-kjaer/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Indoor-Outdoor</a> boasts an architectural feel with clean lines and a focus on comfort for sitting or lounging.
Kjær’s goal was to design a line of furniture that felt like a natural extension of the architecture surrounding it, paying careful attention to scale so it felt balanced. She also placed importance on designing the furniture so that it would last in the outdoors through rain, wind, sun, and snow. Indoor-Outdoor comes in solid teak that will age beautifully and it requires very little maintenance. The collection includes a dining chair, lounge chair, two-seater lounge sofa, swing sofa, a sunbed,

An Aesthetic Pursuit’s Pieces Launches Sports-Inspired Court Series

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/an-aesthetic-pursuits-pieces-launches-sports-inspired-court-series/court-series-pieces-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Court-Series-Pieces-1-810x1080.jpg" alt="An Aesthetic Pursuit&#8217;s Pieces Launches Sports-Inspired Court Series" /></a>
                                Court Series marks the second collection from Brooklyn-based consultants <a href="http://www.anaestheticpursuit.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">An Aesthetic Pursuit&#8217;s</a> home furnishings line, <a href="https://pieceshome.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Pieces</a>. The colorful series includes rugs, tables, stools, ceramics, and original artwork, featuring abstract designs that reference sports culture through graphic patterns that have a faint hint of familiarity.
The hand-tufted rugs display bold colors and sport court-like patterns that are just abstract enough to be really cool focal points in a room without screaming SPORTS. The dining, kitchen, and coffee table designs feature tabletops made of printed laminate housed between two pieces of glass and clear and tinted acrylic columns as the stands. The Hoop Stool comes with a custom upholstered basketball leather seat atop a steel “net” that’s made from water jet cut steel.
