Hermès signs an elegant & luxurious selection of Home Accessories during Milan design week using leather as the link between them, the pieces aim to re-engage with the first act of the saddler and the harness-maker: to dress the objects as they dress the horse.
The very first Christian Dior home collection launched this week at the house’s new and grand four-story shop in London. Peter Marino designed the Home space in the new Dior shop to resemble a conservatory, with greenery along the white trellis and a diamond-shaped skylight that runs the entire length of the entrance.
For the launch, the brand tapped 11 designers to create a range of pieces that includes handblown glass carafes, ceramic plates, decks of Dior-printed playing cards, notebooks, crystal glassware, and hand-embroidered linens. The designers include India Mahdavi; Lucie de la Falaise; Michaël Cailloux; and the store’s designer, Peter Marino. For each season, there will be a rotating group of artists and designers creating unique pieces under this new in-house label.
The aesthetic of each Dior Home item pays homage to the founder himself—his love of flowers, his progressive and feminine dress silhouettes, and his unmistakable, signature gray and pastel pink. source : Vogue

The Paris, France-based design team of Bonsoir Paris is made up of graphic designers, Rémy Clémente & Morgan Maccari. Along with their team they created Duramen, a series of sculptures, which began as wooden frames that are then reimagined into something indistinguishable. The sculptures create juxtaposition between the distorted nature of the designs themselves and their use of fine woods such as oak, fir, wenge, pear, and linden. Source : designmilk
