best of the bunch

It’s been a big year for Danish floral design specialist Tableau, which has blossomed from a budding studio to a fully bloomed label. Lauded by Phaidon in Blooms: Contemporary Floral Design as one of the most impressive florists around, the Copenhagen-based design, art and flower atelier has created large-scale ‘flower clouds’ for the likes of Christian Louboutin and Gubi. To show off their skills, founder Julius Iversen installed this brooding landscape in Tableau’s David Thulstr-up-designed boutique. Made of asparagus fern sprayed purple, the installation is inspired by the country’s dark winter months.

puff love

With its opulent, high-shine metallic finish, Herno’s jacket has really expanded our outerwear inclinations. Part of the Italian performance wear expert’s Laminar collection, the down-filled protective piece is water-repellent, windproof and incredibly lightweight. We suggest you admire your perfectly puffered reflection in Moustache’s sausage-like ‘Zodiac’ mirror. Designed by Jean-Baptiste Fastrez, its bulbous, enamelled ceramic frame evokes the contours of an inflatable boat hanging on a wall. Model: Hanna Jang at Next Model Management. Casting director: David Steven Wilton at East. Hair: Yoshitaka Miyazaki using Bumble and Bumble. Make-up: Jinny Kim…

colour blocking

Colour blocking has been packing a prismatic punch this season in the worlds of fashion and design. Issey Miyake has formed pieces from ‘Blink’, a new resin-printed polyester fabric sporting geometric prints on an abstract kaleidoscopic landscape. Meanwhile, Spanish designer Tomás Alonso’s Japanese-inspired lamps feature colour-blocked designs crafted from bamboo frames and delicate sheets of washi paper. With visible technical elements inspired by theatre lighting, this combination of elegant graphic forms and shadow-forming screens is worthy of the limelight. isseymiyake.com; hermes.com…

vertical travel

This modular lift cabin wouldn’t look out of place in a Wes Anderson production. Created by Lebanese design studio David/Nicolas for local manufacturer Mitsulift, the D/N1 features diffused top lighting, a striated upper section in natural oak, a laminate lower section, available in four statement colours (night blue, grenadine red, pepper grey or basil green), and travertine flooring. A round, steel-framed mirror and oak handrail lend geometric contrast and heighten the design’s cinematic qualities. The pleasing combination of unconventional design and fine craftsmanship means that, rather than being an interstitial space, the lift cabin can become a statement piece within a domestic interior. * davidandnicolas.com; mitsulift.com…

stripe action

There’s a stripe-tease sensibility behind Patricia Urquiola’s rug designs for fellow Spaniards Gan, and Craig Green’s creations for Italian label Moncler’s Genius project. Both designers have had weight loss on their minds, with Green getting a feel for Moncler’s classic down clothing, creating striped outerwear that is both lightweight and foldable. ‘I wanted to explore how large volumes could become incredibly small and easily compacted for travel,’ says Green. For her ‘Nuances’ collection, Urquiola used recycled felt fibres to create rugs and poufs that sport graduated and gently curving stripes. Entirely hand-sewn, they resemble heavy slabs of marble with striking patinas. Model: Tom de Bruin at The Troopers. Casting director: David Steven Wilton at East. Grooming: Kathinka Gernant at Unspoken using Chanel…
