1. Designers Hayley Barrett and Jodie Padgett bring you
Honeycomb for Camira. This British import is made from
100 percent post-industrial recycled polyester, available in
16 color mixes made using non-metallic dyestuffs. It can be
combined with Nanotex stain repellant, BioAM antibacterial,
and DuraBlock waterproof technologies to pack even more
of a powerful high-performance punch.
2. Axor’s ShowerSelect thermostats are taking showering
to a whole new level. As the designer brand of Germany’s
Hansgrohe, they’d better. The simple press of a button now
changes one from handshower to overhead, allowing for
instant control of the user experience.
3. We’re loving the asymmetrical disturbance the Mad Chaise
Lounge from Poliform delivers. Its presence is bold, fun, and
yet intricate all at the same time. Poliform established itself in
the Italian region of Brianza in 1970 and has since evolved into
a global luxury furniture brand, delivering on original and unique
designs like the Marcel Wanders Mad collection family.
4. The Kurage light is a mini world tour all in itself, designed
by Venice- and Stockholm-based Luca Nichetto and Tokyo-based Nendo for Italian design company Foscarini. The shade
is made of washi paper, a fine hand-made Japanese paper
achieved by harvesting and boiling the stems of Mulberry tree
fibers. The complex process dates all the way back to 600 AD.
