Clouds Series | Master Ceramicist Chris Gustin
“This body of work covers a two-year span,” Gustin says. “By inviting both the hand and eye to explore the forms, I hope to evoke numerous memories, recollections that have the potential to change from moment to moment, provoking connections that go past the intellectual to the innate.” Pictured: #1613, 23”x 24”x18”.

Sogno Seating System | Matrix International Forme
Designed by a working group of the DIDA, School of Architecture of the University of Florence, the system provides a variety of seating postures which are obtained thanks to a mechanism concealed in the structure; the seat varies from being a super-accessorized couch to becoming a linear, generous day bed where the seat cushion becomes, being reversible, more comfortable.

H O M E Collection | Norma Kamali
“I have one piece of art, which is a digital wall I create and to which friends contribute. The remaining walls are ceiling-to-floor windows, framing the ever-changing colors in the sky at sunset and as the seasons change. For years I have been cutting and sewing patterns and shapes. Cubes, balls, cones and square pillows infuse my home with serenity; cuddle pillows and comforters made exactly like my sleeping bag coats carry the look into the bedroom. Matching coats and carry bags are all part of what is now my H O M E collection.” – Norma Kamali

Proton Alpha Pendant | Sonneman
Polished Black Nickel with Smoked Glass. This delicately scaled but inherently strong connection of rigid triangular forms describes the achievement of structural volume from minimal elements. Named for a subatomic particle and building block of energy, Proton radiates its powerful LED illumination from pristine glass luminaires that terminate each intersecting rod.

The “Pavus” Luxury Collection | Nina Magon
Pictured: Aryan Dinnerware. Each piece features a trio of buckles reminiscent of an Arena polo team, imbuing the collection with classic refinement.

Hedgerow in Lichen | Pierre Frey x Ken Fulk
Three new rugs and carpets complete the collection of fabrics and wallpapers. Seen from the sky, these hedges interweave like labyrinths. A tribute to landscape construction, this design combines references to 18th- century gardens by Lancelot Brown as well as the illusionist works of M.C. Escher. Woven in Axminster, layered colors create a three-dimensional effect.
