Pair Makes Adaptable Workspaces Possible

                                San Francisco-based <a href="https://www.madebypair.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Pair</a> was co-founded by the duo behind contract furniture dealer, <a href="http://twofurnish.com/#header"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">two</a>, who bring forth their experience and knowledge in this ever-growing and evolving sector. With furniture options that solve the open floor plan vs. closed office debate, they go beyond that by creating solutions for companies whose needs continually change.

Co-founder Brian Wilson shares thoughts on the concept behind Pair:

Some of our hyper fast-growing clients that are scaling are challenged with building spaces that meet the needs of who they might be in 6-12 months. How do you anticipate the needs of departments that don’t even exist? We have seen companies add fixed higher screens or bringing versions of panels back, but that might not be the answer for the next occupant or department that would move into that space. The vision we have is help creating more control or flexibility. Screens that can hang or

Haawe Hotel: Themed Rooms Inspired by the Nature of Lapland

                                While many guests travel to the Lapland to stay in glass resorts or transparent igloos to watch the Northern lights, few know how uncomfortable these accommodation options can be in the summer. With up to 24 hours of daylight in the long summer days, the panoramic panes of glass in your treehouse igloo that let you gaze at the Northern lights actually turn your room into a hot, too-bright glasshouse.

If I’ve now made a strong case for ceilings, then here’s another tip: You don’t have to stay in an igloo to get the Lapland experience. Don’t get me wrong, I’d choose an igloo or a cabin in the forest in the winter, but if you’re visiting in the summer, a boutique hotel in Rovaniemi, Finland, might be just your thing.

Haawe Boutique Apart Hotel is part apartment-to-call-home and part hotel. The first thing I noticed was that our fridge

Mr. Barrett’s House Is an Old Garage Designed from the Inside Out

Located in Geneva, Switzerland, the 70-square-meter structure was gutted and reimagined into <a href="http://www.bureau.ac/projects/mr/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Mr. Barrett’s House</a>. To make that happen, the upper wooden floor was lifted off so the ground floor could be reinforced and structured, and then put back on to finish the house. The original top floor exterior remains and is now paired with a new interior that&#8217;s skimmed in simple birch plywood for a modern, cohesive aesthetic.

The interior’s two floors are visually connected through “complex sections” that make the space feel more open. Tall ceilings and angles keep the eyes moving around through the voids with the hope of enriching the lives who live there.

Circular windows were added giving the exterior a modern feel but over time, they will age and slowly become a part of the building as

The Fragment Series Takes on Marble Waste

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/the-fragment-series-takes-on-marble-waste/fragment-series-with-man/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2019/06/Fragment-series-with-man-810x523.jpg" alt="The Fragment Series Takes on Marble Waste" /></a>
                                The Fragment series has an interesting, and worthwhile, story behind it. It begins with South Korea, a country barren of marble, where the material is imported from abroad. Two tons are wasted each day in the form of marble fragments that have lost their value and are left on shipping containers. The Fragment series is an attempt to retain the value and use the fragmentary pieces from the marble making processing.

Designers Hea-Kyoung and Jung-Ki of FICT design studio wanted to solve the problem of industrial waste this creates, so they teamed with a company called TOTAL MARBLE. They began by figuring out the value of the fragments, and using a resin material to create a marble waste that while less valuable as product can be used in real life projects.

Taking advantage of these fragments, FICT and TOTAL MARBLE created the Fragment series to illustrate the unique beauty of marble’s

Kinkára: Sophisticated Design-Forward Camping in Costa Rica

                                Kinkára, a luxury camping retreat in Costa Rica previously reserved for private groups, opens to travelers this summer.

The eco-luxe lodging spreads across 800 acres of the foothills of the Talamanca mountain range near Mount Chirripó, Costa Rica’s tallest peak. Part of the award-winning Cayuga Collection resorts chain, the secluded resort was specifically designed to create an atmosphere of mindfulness and relaxation in the middle of nature.

31 Lotus Belle tents, placed around the garden and along the river bank, are outfitted with furnishings by local artisans, organic cotton linens, screened windows and doors. Although nature takes priority here, the resort has made this a choice rather than a regulation: the spaces still have solar-powered reading lights, USB charging pods, and high-speed wi-fi.

There’s no compromising on food, though, and award-winning chef Kuntal Kumar handpicks his produce from the Mandala herb garden and a 10,000 tree “food forest.” Guests are

The twice-yearly fair will be held September 6-10th to present their latest sources of inspiration by shedding light on current and future trends. A distinguished jury of design professionals has surveyed the American design landscape and selected six individuals or firms with exceptional skill and promise.

“After concentrating on Europe, the Middle East, and Asia these last few years, we wanted to turn to another great nation of design,” says Philippe Brocart, Managing Director of SAFI, the company that organizes MAISON&OBJET. “The size and cultural diversity of the United States give rise to impressive design achievements, and we are excited to welcome the next generation of designers and their influences to Paris next September.”

The new space was designed in collaboration with Gensler as a representation of how current workspaces are most successful when they offer employees choices. The multi-level showroom displays how users can adapt spaces to fit their own needs for just about any task, offering options rather than limitations.

With so many brands under the Knoll umbrella, the designers were able to select from a variety of products to create inspiring and inviting spaces, from gathering spots to adaptive work zones that allow focused or collaborative situations. Iconic pieces work alongside newer designs, while vibrant colors live next to neutrals,  all coming together for a fresh approach.

                                Coinciding with NeoCon 2019, <a href="https://www.knoll.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Knoll</a> said goodbye to the Merchandise Mart and hello to their <a href="https://www.knoll.com/story/design-plan/knoll-design-days"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">new Chicago showroom at Fulton Market</a>. The new space was designed in collaboration with Gensler as a representation of how current workspaces are most successful when they offer employees choices. The multi-level showroom displays how users can adapt spaces to fit their own needs for just about any task, offering options rather than limitations.

With so many brands under the Knoll umbrella, the designers were able to select from a variety of products to create inspiring and inviting spaces, from gathering spots to adaptive work zones that allow focused or collaborative situations. Iconic pieces work alongside newer designs, while vibrant colors live next to neutrals,  all coming together for a fresh approach.
