Long associated with mod bubble chairs and Kartell, the transparent material is being reimagined in a kaleidoscope of colors.
Many designers are turning up the volume on their inspiration, preserving music and rhythm in their creations
Rainbow hues, color-changing films, and iridescent glazes have been steadily coating the design world for years. Co.Design investigates why.
Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli and Diogo Felippelli have succeeded in what most people fail: they have materialized music. Their French Touch Collection is a groovy tribute to the eponymous House style, the Laurent Garnier or Etienne de Crécy sent around the world in the 90's from France.
Below is a list of five designers you should get to know. They’re definitely on our radar, and soon, we’ll likely be able to point to an installation and know it’s a Kakuda or see the influence of Work + Sea in a wallpaper design.
Sidekicks that can take top billing
Style savvy consumers and industry professionals got up-close and personal with directional trends, high-end materials and a cool, contemporary vibe at the WestEdge Design Fair in Santa Monica last weekend.
We are very excited to announce the launch of our brand new exclusive series 'Design Ambassadors' where we find and carefully choose design leaders, influencers and experts around the globe to curate their monthly list of links, exhibitions and events, special projects and who-to-watch in their local design scenes, as Design Ambassadors representing their city.
It’s appropriate that Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli and husband Diogo Felippelli– known collectively as design brand Joogii– name Philippe Starck’s early work as an influence. Starck famously got his start in Paris nightclubs and Joogii also started in a nightclub when Juliette and Diogo first met and bonded over their shared love of music.
Los Angeles-based design studio Joogii, known for their iridescent chair that was inspired by Daft Punk and other French house music from the 90s, have expanded theirFrench Touch Collection to include a new chair, coffee table, side table, vases, a desk object, and wrist art.
Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli is the co-founder and designer of the Los Angeles-based studio Joogii. She and her husband founded the company in 2015 to create objects and art to cultivate a vibrant environment. Since founding the company, they’ve created a mixture of products ranging from furniture to wrist watches and have more items to debut later this year.
For Juliette Mutzke-Felippelli, a colorful – and musical – bolt of inspiration struck while she was building a chair in a furniture construction class. The inspiration transformed a functional piece of furniture into a vibrant work of art.
The inaugural NYCxDESIGN Awards presented by Interior Design magazine and ICFF kicked off this evening at Industry City in Brooklyn with the announcement of this year's honorees.
Evoking everything from shocking pink Pacific sunsets to slickened streets after a rare El Nino downpour, the current crop of iridescent furnishing - an emerging trend of Salone del Mobile - will inject a dose of playfulness into the home.
