New #Luxury Product Spotlight: Week of Sept. 29th
Weekly my inbox fills with notice of great new products being introduced to the market. And as much as I'd like to devote space in our quarterly magazine theTwentySIX, there just isn't enough space. The result? Every week check this spot for the newest product introductions. And if you'd like to see your product here... make sure to email me the press release and necessary photos.
Nouveau Ribel Collection by Lee Broom
Brit designer Lee Broom has been changing the way we see light since the introduction of his cut crystal light bulb pendant. This time Broom challenges our perception of stone, incorporating Carrara marble into his newest lighting collection Nouveau Ribel. Both the leaded crystal Globe and Chamber feature the Italian stone as a diffuser, sending light through the otherwise opaque material and producing an unexpected translucent quality. Fulcrum, a monolithic candlestick reminiscent of the works of Michael Graves also translates Lee Broom's whimsical vision, recessing the candle into the blocky form so as to produce a glowing effect, warming up the otherwise cold material.
Handprinted Wallcovering Collection from designer Eley Kishimoto
Though London fashion house Eley Kishimoto is no stranger to the interior decorative arts world, the studio is making their foray into wallcoverings with the debut of their new wallpaper range featuring reworked prints from the archives of their over 22 years of designs. The hand-screened collection features 12 patterns ranging from the Pre-War London inspired Light on Lattice and decadently floral Galaxy Bouquet to almost Damask La La Lyon and groovy Camo Chevron. Each 8.95 meter roll retails for £160.00 from the Eley Kishimoto online shop.
Contemporary Housewares by Zaha Hadid Design
Harkening to an era when architects not only designed a structure but also the contents within, Iraqi starchitect Zaha Hadid has launched a new collection of housewares to be sold through her online store as well as London luxury goods boutique Harrods. The smallest of the goods, the Prime Oriental Scented Candle, a soy based candle encased in an architectural presentation of bone china (£90.00) ensures that nearly everyone can enjoy a piece of Hadid in their home while the Moon System Sofa produced by B&B Italia (starting at £9,515.00) and Tide Shelving (£250.00) offer an air of curvilinear exclusivity. Hadid's housewares collection further includes candle holders, vases, and even a line of silver service.
Marble Basins by Frassk
For centuries artisans and stone masons have explored the vulnerable qualities in stone, working to make blocks of solid marble appear more and more delicate and fragile. Frassk furthers the ideal in the creation of their series of marble basins. The use of negative space, organic shapes and delicate curves enhance the sinks, designed to bring a sense of lightness to the otherwise heavy material. Tern and Lathkill both feature integrated wells and smooth lines while Rogan toys with negative space with a towel bar carved from the same block of marble. Kisdon incorporates additional storage in it's tapered wooden base.
