This year’s Interior Design Show was packed with great new designs and one-of-a-kind installations. We have put together some of our favourite picks from the show to complement the already mentioned special features in our previous article ‘Special Features to watch for at IDS 2018’. Let us know what were your favourite designs from this year’s show.
Highwire Pendant by Anony
Highwire Pendant by Anony is a gravitational balancing act, created by tension between two points and a weighted centre. The disks rest on taught electrical cables which lightly trace shapes in three-dimensional space. You can add up to five luminaires to a single power drop.
Bamboo Lamp by East Van Light
Vancouver based designer Dan Emery has teamed up with ChopValue in creating his latest Bamboo lamp. ChopValue is a product design startup that creates beautiful materials with recycled chopsticks. They have recycled more than 2 million chopsticks from 13 local restaurant. The lamp, as with all lamps made by East Van Light merges minimalist with industrial design in an exquisite display of elegance.
The Bamboo lamp is available in both the Edison Single and Block models, with a choice of Antique Edison or Radio Tube light bulb.
Beaubien Three Position Lamp by Lambert & Fils
The Beaubien Collection’s strong black lines bend in and out of space, moving effortlessly between simplicity and ornamentation. Round and cubic brass connectors complete the lamps’ structures and add a rich material contrast to the powder coated rods. The collection’s industrial and graphic aesthetic is imbued with a palette of influences, from traditional Chinese screens to the Memphis movement.
Inbound Table by Retrobound
With a shape indicative of bent wood, the backbone of this table is instead fashioned from a stack of solid wood profiles, offering up strength and longevity. The curved table ends eliminate sharp corners, providing a safe environment for small children, while a soft underbelly invites play! Hidden feet raise the table slightly off the ground, just enough to “lighten” things up. Upholstery surrounds the inner surface, while delicate LEDs inlay-ed in wood change colour to create various atmospheres.
Vertex by Muizee
“Vertex” is a point where two of more straight lines meet. With 12 faces, the Vertex shape is considered a feminine shape and is associated with water and creativity. The pendant is available in two different sizes. While we have a soft spot for geometry and Vertex caught our eyes in an instant, the entire line of jewelry from Muizee is stunning.
Objects by Victoria Chin OXVC
OXVC is a collection that combines ceramics and design. With a focus on craftsmanship and attention-to-detail, each piece is meticulously crafted and finished by hand in Toronto, Canada. From geometric forms to its monochromatic palette, every aspect celebrates the materiality and processes in ceramics.
The Doppler designed by Giuseppe Viganò for Bonaldo creates an optical illusion of overlapping surfaces, whereas actually the doors are made up of a single surface. The asymmetrical opening of the doors is an additional sign of originality. The lacquered wood frame is supported by a solid ash-wood base, in three finishes: natural, grey or painted walnut-wood.
