Tokujin Yoshioka Designed a Glass Watch for ISSEY MIYAKE Watch Project

Tokujin Yoshioka Designed a Glass Watch for ISSEY MIYAKE Watch Project

Tokyo-based designer Tokujin Yoshioka adds another watch design to his portfolio of timepieces for Issey Miyake. The latest is the Glass Watch, which marks the 16th model of the ISSEY MIYAKE Watch Project. The bold design dons a solid piece of transparent glass that gives the watch a sculptural feel.

Yoshioka is no stranger to working with glass, as evident by his previous work, so carrying the material to the wrist seems like a natural progression. Paired with a stainless steel case and a leather band, the watch has a sleek, minimalist feel.

The thick glass was machined so that light would beautifully reflect from all angles.

The Glass Watch will be available November 10th, 2017, at ISSEY MIYAKE shops worldwide and online at the ISSEY MIYAKE WATCH store.

Villa N1: An All-Wood Summer House in Sweden Designed by Lindvall A & D

Villa N1: An All-Wood Summer House in Sweden Designed by Lindvall A & D

Built as a family summer house on the west coast of Sweden, Villa N1 was designed by Jonas Lindvall, of Lindvall A & D, to mimic the wooden barns clad in horizontal planks that are prevalent in the region. The single-story, all-wood house spans 190 square meters (approx. 2045 square feet) and is composed of five pavilion-like structures joined together in a row.

At one end, you’ll find the master bedroom and at the other end is the children’s bedrooms, with the common areas residing in the center volumes. The pavilions each feature a pitched roof, which leans towards traditional, but the simplicity of the overall design feels very modern.

Not just the walls are made of wood – the roof is too. The facade planks are made of oak that’s left untreated so that it ages naturally over time.

The master bedroom and playroom are set at a lower level as the landscape slopes. The public area is large and open with floor-to-ceiling windows that slide away and hide within the walls to create an indoor/outdoor flow. Pietra Serena stone covers the main areas and halls of the house and continues to the patio spaces for continuity.

Peace Industry Introduces Fall Collection with Four Independent Designers

Peace Industry, a brand that specializes in Iran-made felt rugs, recently partnered with four independent designers for their Fall 2017 collection, including Alison Damonte, Hinterland Design, Raha Raissnia, and Disc Interiors. The rug collaborations show new, modern approaches to the age-old techniques of felt making through experimentation. Take a look.

You-me by Alison Damonte

Giving nod to abstract, minimalist painters, like Sol Lewitt and Ellsworth Kelly, the Alison Damonte Collection overlaps geometric forms that result in unusual rug shapes.

Fringe by Hinterland Design

Hinterland Design merges floating geometric shapes and pale gray backgrounds for a Memphis-deco feel. Accent curves and asymmetrical fringe add unexpected, yet playful details resulting in a post-modern look.

Shuffle Your Belongings in Society6’s Newly Launched Duffle Bags

Shuffle Your Belongings in Society6’s Newly Launched Duffle Bags

I’m all about traveling as light as possible and sometimes I don’t need a full suitcase for a quick weekend getaway. That’s why I prefer duffle bags because they’re light and malleable for fitting into small spaces, like a packed trunk or a full plane. (Have you ever boarded a plane last and slowly realized with fear that there’s no place to put your luggage? It’s annoying, isn’t it?) Society6 just launched new duffle bags so depending on whether you’re traveling across the town or across the country, keeping a duffle bag on hand ensures that you’ll have the right bag for your travels when the time comes. Here are 10 of our favorites!
