Ward Wijnant Creates Tension in His New Twisted Collection

Ward Wijnant Creates Tension in His New Twisted Collection

Ward Wijnant continues to push the boundaries on the use of steel in contemporary furniture with his latest Twisted collection. An update to his original collection, the new Twisted includes a sconce, new seating, a larger cabinet, and mirrored accessories. By turning, twisting, and bending rods of steel, Wijnant forges a unique tension that can be seen in every piece.

Gaining New Perspectives with Society6’s Wood Wall Art

Gaining New Perspectives with Society6’s Wood Wall Art

Society6 recently launched Wood Wall Art and we love how these nine simple Baltic birch squares give wall decor a whole new perspective. They come in three sizes (3×3’, 4×4’ and 5×5’) with keyholes on the back for easy hanging. All you need to do is decide on your spacing preference between each square. That, and deciding which one of the thousands of art created by Society6’s artists and designers to purchase. Here are eight new designs that caught our eye…

Pattern Reflections: A MOO x PATTERNITY Postcard Collaboration

Pattern Reflections: A MOO x PATTERNITY Postcard Collaboration

MOO, the online design and print company, released a collaboration with pattern aficionados PATTERNITY that’s a set of bold, beautiful postcards called Pattern Reflections. The MOO x PATTERNITY partnership was created as a way to encourage people to take a moment and reflect on a person or perhaps something that inspires them.

The collection includes five pattern-fueled designs that are patterns that are out there and impact us on a daily basis. Their hope is that you send them out to those you care about as a way to spread more kindness and good thoughts. The post cards are available in packs of 25 and in small ($21) and medium ($24) sizes.

Bec Brittain x John Hogan Collaboration

Bec Brittain x John Hogan Collaboration

Bec Brittain x John Hogan is a collaboration that is the result of a series of responses to each others’ work, both technically and aesthetically. The collection is on view for NYCxDESIGN until Friday, May, 25th 2018 at Bec Brittain’s showroom.

Hogan was inspired by celestial references from the Aries system, using the star as a reference for interacting and transforming natural light. For this particular collaboration he created lenses for a much smaller scale light source.

In order to support Hogan’s reframed glass pieces, Brittain had to depart from the celestial aesthetic to a more architectural structure consisting of trusses and scaffolding in order to support the glass pieces. As a result, “each glass concept called for a totally different formal language to best highlight both the form of the glass and how it diffuses and refracts the light.”
