WantedDesign 2016: Part 2

Part of American Design Club’s GROWTH, an exhibition of design objects made for plants, these geometric wall planters were designed by AABSTRACT.


Form and Forest debuted Slice, lighting pendants made from leather that’s been, well, sliced.


Richard Clarkson Studio showed these cool saber-like lights that were inspired by stereo waveform visualizer displays. The light up based on the frequencies playing in the music.


Using thin laminated strips, Laura Kishimoto formed this sculptural chair through weaving and bending the wood.


The Ami Rocker from Nursery Works can go from the rocking seat with cradle to a double seat rocker when your child is older. We just featured this new collection earlier in the week, definitely a favorite.


Damon Ahola’s TOWER is a single cup, pour-over coffee maker inspired by the New York City skyline.


We loved the accordian-like front on this credenza from Federico Varone.


Loïc Bard‘s modular shelf becomes a side table. Also, we are obsessed with his magnetic wooden jewelry.


Casa International launched new GAIA&GINO lighting designed by David Rockwell at the Rockwell Group.


Loved these glass string vessels from Tu Taller.


Ventura Projects showcased some unique sculptural pieces driven by material and geometry. More about this special showcase here.
