New arrival in the showroom!

BLOOM Ornametrica

BLOOM Ornametrica is a range of chandeliers and candelabras which are based on a geometric principle allowing the construction to be extended. The appearance of the chandeliers and candelabras change when they are folded partly or fully unfolded and in every position the module elements create a new ornament. Ornametrica is made of anodized aluminium and is available in black and plain aluminium. We are expecting the arrival of the Bloom Ornametrica Candelabra this week! See also www.ornametrica.nl

Tom Dixon Etch

Etch launched as part of Flash Factory, at the Tom Dixon stand in Salone Del Mobile, Milan 2010. The digitally manufactured collection includes this pendant light etched from brass as well as a candle holder. 

Made by employing an industrial process used to produce electronic products, including circuit boards, the method allows for intricate detailed patterns to be cut directly onto the metal.
The geodesic structures are made up of sections of 0.4mm etched metal sheets inspired by the logic of pure mathematics. 

The detailed pattern cast a mass of intricate shadows when lit.
Batch produced, Etch demonstrates Future Industry, where small numbers of high-tech products can be produced in greatly reduced time scales.

Li Edelkoort

Li Edelkoort is well known through the Trend Union for the many trends and lifestyle seminars she gives to professionals in all industries all over the world. I was recently privileged enough to attend one such seminar at the Cape Town Convention Center.

There were many observations which stood out to me however I’d like to share the more visual ones. Firstly, which I found fun, yellow is the new pink, don’t forget it!

We will bring the outdoors in, making the connection more literal. Ceiling to floor wooden panelling is making a comeback, with very tactile surfaces being key.

 Think industrial metals. Not too shiny metallics. Rust!

Lace, embroidery and woven grasses lend themselves to the concept that furniture needs to be lightweight and easy to move around.
