Editor’s Picks: 11 Product Designs That Are Inspiring Us This Month

“Contour” Collection | Designed by Bodo Sperlein, the “Contour” furniture collection draws inspiration from the clean-curved silhouettes of the 20th- century Art Nouveau movement. The fluid curves of the piece result from the time-honored woodcraft techniques and painstaking work of London-based RASKL artisans. The finish is created using the traditional Japanese shou sugi ban technique.

“Scarlet” Wallpaper + Fabric in Gold/Dark | The Melbourne-based designer Louise Jones’ wallpaper features bursts of colors and bold botanical motifs inspired by Australia’s native wildlife. To achieve the almost 3D effect seen on the wallpapers and fabrics, Jones uses a combination of different mediums, including watercolor paintings and her own photography. The result is a vibrant collection that seemingly pops off of the paper and fabric!

Wormhole from Il Bronzetto | Freely inspired by a twentieth-century lamp model, the name of the collection, WORMHOLE, hides a very deep meaning for the company and its creative director. In astronomy, a wormhole is the space-time tunnel that connects one universe to another. It represents the temporal and conceptual passage between the artisan workshop Il Bronzetto, deeply connected in shapes and materials to its history and tradition.

Windsor Settee By Aspen Golann | Created in collaboration with master chairmaker Peter Galbert, the design blends contemporary proportions with classical construction and ornamentation.

Custom turnings and carvings complement the steam-bent crest rail and curved stretchers. White oak, hard maple, eastern white pine, milk paint finish.

The Vale London “Tassel Berry” Wallpaper | Handwoven sisal fiber. Designer and artist Melinda Marquardt created The Vale as a tribute to the street in Chelsea where she spent her childhood.

Bowls and cups are also available. It is made to be used and enjoyed every day. The stoneware tableware is designed and fired in my studio in Toulouse.”

Kuratable | These functional tables include hidden intentional storage for your everyday items, transforming your space from cluttered to curated.
