Best of NeoCon 2019

                                Once again, Design Milk headed off to Chicago to the Merchandise Mart to see the latest and greatest in commercial design at <a href="https://www.neocon.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">NeoCon 2019</a>. Along with a continuation of privacy furniture, much of the new designs seemed to blur the lines between workplace and home, offering companies options that provide a more comfortable and cozy feel. Color and modularity also were standouts as the workspace continues to evolve with companies focusing just as much on aesthetics as they do on functionality. Take a look at some of our favorites from this year&#8217;s show.

Another Human Debuts the Pool Collection and the ET Collection

                                <a href="https://www.anotherhuman.la/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Another Human</a>, the label of multidisciplinary designer Leah Ring, has released two fresh collections – the Pool Collection and the ET Collection. Ring finds inspiration everywhere from the Memphis Group to outer space, often blurring the line between design and art.

The Pool Collection is the embodiment of summer culture that’s often associated with Los Angeles. Its two pieces – the Pool Table and the Jacuzzi Table – are fun and playful, a fantastic experiment of form and functionality. Their acrylic tops mimic irregularly shaped pools, while pool noodles have been applied to their legs to make the pieces even more approachable.

The ET Collection shows off that same sense of fun and whimsy, this time being driven by the narrative of a group of aliens discovering one another while lost in space. Each piece takes on otherworldly qualities with their forms and finishes.

There’s Strength in Numbers with Iron Hive

                                Davide Mezzasalma came up with the structural idea of <a href="http://www.ironhive.de/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Iron Hive</a> when he was looking for a creative room dividing solution in an apartment. <em>&#8220;My inspirations are the repetitive geometric elements on which nature itself is built: from atoms, cells, crystals to the honeycombs of a beehive. Elements that can divide, split, and grow and thus find new forms,&#8221;</em> explains the designer.

Just like a beehive, each polygonal module of the Iron Hive modular shelving system presents you with endless possibilities that are flexible and visually dynamic. It grows and transforms according to the needs of the user. On its own, one cube can be a side table. Add more cube units to create length and height to make a sideboard, room divider, or shelving. They can be recombined over and over again thanks to an easy to install screw connection, allowing for loads of customization.

Iron Hive’s cubes are

                                At this year’s <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/icff" data-wpel-link="internal">ICFF</a> show during <a href="https://design-milk.com/tag/nycxdesign" data-wpel-link="internal">NYCxDESIGN</a>, we made sure to stop by one particular booth to check out a collection we’re quite fond of (for obvious reasons): the <a href="https://www.wovenconcepts.com/untitled" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Untitled rug collection</a> by our very own Jaime Derringer for Woven Concepts. The collection (<a href="https://design-milk.com/untitled-collection-rugs-jaime-derringer-x-woven-concepts-highlights-beauty-brushstroke/" data-wpel-link="internal">which we’ve shared before</a>) includes a new design called UnRivaled which features a wool background with silk brush strokes.

All of the rugs in the Untitled collection use a “Ghiordes” weaving method to create a unique texture with the 100% New Zealand, highland wool yarn. The inherent lanolin content of wool makes it a natural stain repellent, helping to ensure the longevity of the rugs.

While the collection was designed with a saturated romance color palette, it also allows for as much customization as a designer might need.

The lighting pieces, a sconce as well as a chandelier, feature cone-shaped 3D printed porcelain shades and are available in several glaze colors and finishes.

The hallmark of Arches is an upholstered bench constructed from tubes that have been upholstered in a soft wool. There’s also an optional interlocking bolster pillow that’s covered in a contrasting speckled pattern. Choose from a palette of standard wool colors.

Meet the Coolest Inflatable Pool Ever from Mylle

                                Inflatable pools, not just for children anymore. These beauties are designed by <a href="https://www.mylleshop.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mylle</a> and are about perfect for every imaginable living situation. Have a little bit of yard space behind your house or a rooftop deck at your apartment? Have a self-care day for yourself, drag it out for summer parties, pack it in your bag when you travel, or even let the kids use it.

These pools were designed with adults in mind, a relaxing place to spend hot days that don’t involve a pattern of cartoony prints or neon. Each pool is such cool, accessible design – in fact Mylle’s original design sold out last year (and this year!), so they’ve released four more playful looks. There’s a graphic take on the original black and white grid, millennial pink watercolor, a spattered army green, and even terrazzo.

Each inflatable pool is packaged in a matching vinyl envelope

The slab of marble forms over the brass structure looking as if it&#8217;s melting and sliding down the back into a puddle on the floor. Despite its rigid nature, the marble appears fluid with unlikely curves that suggest another material. The result is not only functional, but a sculptural piece of art.

Early professional success as a jewelry designer taught her that life is not about ego hits, it’s about the journey. Fueled by curiosity, she’s traveled through the corporate world as a way to keep learning. She approaches work like conducting an orchestra &#8211; drawing out the best in individuals to create beautiful music as a team. Listen:

                                Last month New York-based designer <a href="https://www.lindseyadelman.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Lindsey Adelman</a> opened the doors to a new 5,000 square foot showroom in Manhattan&#8217;s NoHo neighborhood. The building not only houses her studio&#8217;s sculptural lighting collections, but also her studio. The space will act as both creative lab and display space, sharing over ten years of creative work and giving clients access to a behind-the-scenes look at the process.

“Visibility into our product development method gives our clients a richer understanding of our process and work. It’s easier to absorb an idea or a certain technology when you can see the material or process happening right in front of you,” says Adelman.

The showroom feels welcoming and livable, sharing various lighting pieces in rotating displays. It also brings the creative, production, and sales teams together under one roof, allowing them to seamlessly meet with clients.

“Now more than ever, having more space, we’re really able

Designed by Alejandro Villarreal, the chair features a solid wood seat resting atop four tapered legs, with a series of wire spindles that rise from the underside to join the wooden bar backrest. The WW Chair, where the first &#8216;W&#8217; stands for Windsor and the second for Wire, originally came in just oak and walnut, but was later <a href="https://design-milk.com/limited-edition-ww-chair-color-series/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">released in a variety of bold colorways</a>. For this month&#8217;s <a href="https://design-milk.com/column/deconstruction/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">Deconstruction</a>, HAYCHE and Villarreal, take us inside to see how the design came about.

Villarreal’s working process starts manually: “My design process always starts with a hand-drawn sketch, which I find intimate and very personal,” he says.

“After that, I share the sketch with my design team and we start the painstaking process

Coast to Coast Continues: The Exhibit

                                <div class="post-intro">

Special thanks to Emily Rae Pellerin and Jean Lin of Colony for the following post.

Coast to Coast Continues: The Exhibit
Last year, we teamed up with NYC-based independent furniture, lighting, and textile design gallery, Colony, for Coast to Coast. Together on a road trip adventure, we explored the United States in the name of design, discovery, and inspiration. We stopped for (and wrote about) visits to burgeoning design pockets of Detroit, Nashville, New Orleans, Austin, and the Santa Fe region of New Mexico, and were welcomed into their creative communities more wholeheartedly than we could’ve ever imagined.

We are so excited to announce the next chapter in the Coast to Coast exploration: an exhibit showcasing the diverse expressions of American design, art, and craft that we uncovered along the way. Our co-presenting partner, NeueHouse, is the perfect site to host the work. The private workspace

The winner, Aimee Munro, was given the opportunity to bring her own design to concrete, an age-old material heavily used in Bauhaus architecture. The Sydney-based designer created the versatile <a href="http://www.kaza.com/designs/diverge"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Diverge</a> collection with a bold color palette and simple geometry that give nod to the Bauhaus movement. Comprising five tile designs, Diverge can be arranged into any configuration to become three-dimensional wall art.

The five tiles – I-Strike, II-Find, III-Reach, IV-Meet, and V-Dip – can stand on their own or they can be mixed and matched to create a design as simple or as bold as desired. In addition to the choice of patterns, Diverge is available in a variety of concrete pigments for further customization.

Carter and Eve Arrive at Croft House

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/carter-and-eve-arrive-at-croft-house/croft-house-eve-dining-chair/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2019/06/Croft-House-Eve-Dining-Chair-810x545.jpg" alt="Carter and Eve Arrive at Croft House" /></a>
                                There is simple done well, and then there is simple done so well that you audibly sigh. The latter is what <a href="https://www.crofthouse.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Croft House&#8217;s</a> two new collections – <a href="https://www.crofthouse.com/collections/new-designs"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Carter and Eve</a> – did to us. The latest from the LA-based furniture brand puts light wood tones, supple leather, and a touch of color front and center with five consoles, four beds, three mirrors, two dining tables, and one sofa.

The Carter collection is made up of a sofa, bed, bookcase, dining table, nightstand, and console designs, while Eve includes a dining table and chair. All of Croft House’s pieces are fully customizable, as are Carter and Eve, and made entirely in Los Angeles.

As always WantedDesign presented a solid exhibition filled with a curated selection of furniture, lighting, and objects by both up-and-coming and established designers from around the world. Take a look to see some of our favorite designs presented this year.

French paint brand Ressource invited French painter Thomas Labarthe to live paint during the opening night of WantedDesign. He first painted the black outline of the painting and then went back in with a collection of NYC-inspired paint colors (below). It was fun to see the painting progress as you walked back by.

As you entered the show FLOS showcased an illuminating installation of Michael Anastassiades Arrangements pendant lighting  hung from the ceiling.

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/egg-collective-opens-new-tribeca-showroom/egg-collective-tribeca-showroom-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2019/06/Egg-Collective-Tribeca-Showroom-1-810x586.jpg" alt="Egg Collective Opens New TriBeCa Showroom" /></a>
                                The design group founded by Crystal Ellis, Hillary Petrie, and Stephanie Beamer – <a href="http://www.eggcollective.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Egg Collective</a> – opened their <a href="http://www.eggcollective.com/visit"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">new flagship showroom</a> in New York City&#8217;s TriBeCa neighborhood. Formerly a law office, the historic space was completely gutted to be redesigned by the trio with the purpose of creating an accessible location for people to visit. The interior comprises two larger showrooms with the addition of two smaller vignettes that cohesively flow from one space to the next, offering visitors an experience that feels more like walking through someone&#8217;s beautiful home as opposed to a typical showroom.

Along with opening the showroom they launched a new collection that included a bookcase, sofa, table, and desk/console. In continuation of their support of fellow designers, Egg Collective featured specialty wall treatments by Callidus Guild, who they exclusively represent, to showcase the transitions between the rooms. The finishes, which are part of the ‘Matte’
