Now based in the heart of East London, Daniel moved to the capital to study at the Royal College of Art. “The main influence this time had on my work was the idea that someone with training in textile design can apply their knowledge to other outcomes,” he says. “I worked with a lot of different people on a range of projects, often simultaneously. I remember running up and down the stairs because the lifts would be out of action and the departments are split across

The result is a beautiful collection of goods with a feel-good story behind how they came to be.

Modern Finds at NeoCon 2017

                                We headed to Chicago last week to check out the latest in commercial design at this year&#8217;s <a href="http://neocon.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">NeoCon</a>. Luckily the days of corporate cubicles are slowing fading as companies are continuing to push the idea of what an office should look like with innovative textiles, colors, materials, and designs that are finally bringing some fun back into the workspace. Take a look at some favorite things we spotted while walking the floors of the Merchandise Mart.

Native & Co Combine Craft and Design to Promote Japanese and Taiwanese Culture

                                British-Japanese Chris Yoshiro Green and Taiwan-born Sharon Jo-Yun Hung met while studying on the art foundation course at London’s Chelsea College of Art. They both went on to study product design at Central Saint Martins and bonded over their shared love of cultural projects that were perhaps more conceptual than commercial – Sharon’s graduate project focused on the social identity of Taiwan’s indigenous tribes, while Chris explored the rituals of Japanese funeral ceremonies. “Looking back, I think our tutors noticed that we were a team, but were a bit perplexed by our ideas,” laughs Sharon.
As products of a course that, at that time at least, was more focused on training designers for industry, their path since graduation hasn’t

                                Now that new product launches are instantly disseminated the world over through social media and blogs like this one, design festivals have to try harder to reward those who visit in person, whether that&#8217;s through hyper-local design or live experiences. Clerkenwell, a tiny area of London that gets its own festival due to the sheer number of creatives based there (there are rumored to be more architects per square foot than anywhere else in the world) and its <a href="http://www.clerkenwelldesignweek.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Design Week</a> is no exception.
Commissioned by our very own Editor at Large, Katie Treggiden, the Curved Twist installation at Desso‘s flooring showroom was created by Kia Utzon-Frank and Faye McCaul, combining Kia’s patent pending Louver Twisting Comb system, a frame made from recycled yogurt pots, and 21,500 dichroic rods that Faye knitted into a screen that changes color depending on the light and angle it is viewed from.

They recently debuted Momento, a collection that is about designing an object around a person or event, and the memory that&#8217;s left behind. Momento is purposefully misspelled, and seeks to ask, &#8220;How can we push the boundary of ordinary product to the new design approach?&#8221; As a result, each designer dived deep into their own memories and experiences to inspire a product. Though the product starts with no clear typology or definition, it eventually forms as the maker translates the questions and intuitions of possibilities into a physical object.
PUMP, by Napat Pongpanatnukul, was inspired by the idea of inflating bike tires, but turning it into a way to adjust coffee table. It has the same major design elements of a bike pump, but is elevated

                                We&#8217;ve just returned from another <a href="http://design-milk.com/tag/nycxdesign" data-wpel-link="internal">NYCxDESIGN</a> which always wraps up with several days spent walking the aisles of the Javits Center for <a href="http://design-milk.com/tag/icff/" data-wpel-link="internal">ICFF</a> (International Contemporary Furniture Fair). <a href="http://design-milk.com/tag/icff-2017/" data-wpel-link="internal">This year&#8217;s ICFF</a> was 30% bigger than years past, which meant way more things to see and check out. To kick things off, here are my favorites, with more coming from Vy and Jaime!
It’s always great to see what Flavor Paper is going to unveil and this year they knocked it out with several wallpaper collaborations, two of which are these. On the left is an almost 3D looking wallpaper by artist Mark Dean Veca, and on the right is by professional doodler Jon Burgerman, who made all those characters out of Play-Doh and then photographed them. The Drop series mirror from Skram features a drop-shaped mirror within a wooden frame that extends out to become a shelf. Stillfried was

                                <a href="http://www.bernhardtdesign.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Bernhardt Design</a> is no stranger to bringing on established designers for collaborations and their latest approach makes a slight, but incredible, variation. This time, the brand&#8217;s president, Jerry Helling, brought on three unique talents that didn&#8217;t come with your typical design background to round out a project they call, The Creatives. When you take a look at the collections, you&#8217;ll see why Helling enlisted Terry Crews, Tift Merritt, and Joe Gebbia for this brand-new perspective on design.
One thing you can’t do is put Terry Crews in a box, as the former NFL player turned actor has way more under the surface than many might know. He’s been drawing and making art since childhood and while his career took him in other directions, his creative core never left him.
