This month we will be presenting a selection of works by innovative New York designer Ian Stell. His designs might more aptly be referred to as inventions. Kineticism is a major theme, and his work often presents unexpected or open-ended function. The show will run from April 18th - May 10th.
Recent project: Black Ocean Firehouse is a new co-working space located in a 19th-century landmark building. Rafael de Cardenas re-designed everything from the ground up. He included F/K/A Table Lamp by Jonah Takagi for MatterMade and Bluff City Light also by Takagi.
Wallpaper* Magazine's W* House is filled with their favorite products from around the world. Affordances #1 table by Jonathan Zawada and Maxhedron by Bec Brittain are both featured in the living room.
At Saloni 2014 Roll and Hill is showing the new Gridlock by Philippe Malouin. It will be available here soon. Give us a call for details.
Designer Peter Bristol and Juniper developed Thin, an innovative task light that uses the latest in LED technology. A proprietary dimming switch controls light output, and includes a nightlight setting. The articulation of this lamp allows for an angle for every situation.
Phillip Low's acrylic sculptures meld geometry and color to create a surprisingly kinetic viewing experience. With a slight change in perspective it becomes clear that the medium is light, and the man-made becomes something altogether ethereal. Each piece is one-of-a-kind.
The Hex pendant from Resident is a modern alternative for the home, or the office. Constructed from aluminum channel, its recess contains a warm white LED lightsource and a poly-prismatic diffuser.
Apollo is a floor or table lamp combining the brutality of marble with the lightness of glass. Apollo’s tilted base makes it look like the lamp just landed. The piece is inspired by the American space capsule of the same name.
The Beetle Chair by GamFratesi is an example of the designers' aim to create furniture that illustrates the process and the techniques used to create it. This chair's form is influenced by and exploits certain aspects of shell construction typically used for upholstered furniture. Available in a variety of fabrics.
