The annual pilgrimage the international design community makes for Milan’s Salone del Mobile and Design Week is unlike any other. More than 370,000 visitors pour into the city each April for the fiera alone, not to mention the increasingly important satellite events that populate the city for a week. Each year the event seems to be even bigger and more spread-out than the last, forcing journalists and editors like myself to literally run between events, appointments and interviews. Spending time in the backs of taxis or squeezed into the metro, though, can mean missing out on one of the simple pleasures of Milan — la passeggiata. The relatively small and intimate city is truly best experienced on foot, and especially so during the pleasant spring weather we were blessed with this…

Fort Street Studio Artistic husband-and-wife team Brad Davis and Janis Provisor, co-founders and creative directors behind luxury rug company Fort Street Studio, take time each year for a retreat during which many of their new designs are dreamt up. One of the studio’s newest designs, Desu, for example, originates from a watercolour Provisor first painted several summers ago while on a retreat in Bali. Inspired by the mist-laden landscape surrounding their Ubud studio and its neighbouring Ayung River, the painting is named for one of the women who worked at the house and her perpetually upbeat spirit. As with all the studio’s designs, Desu is the result of a collaborative effort — in this case, Provisor created the original artwork while Davis transformed and manipulated it digitally to create a pattern…

Biomorphic Structures by Asterios Agkathidis (Laurence King Publishing) Nature is by no means a new source of inspiration to designers, who often look to organically occurring shapes, proportions and structures for a heady influence on their own work. Biomorphism, then, is the creative synthesis bridging the gap between surrealism and abstract art with design — and particularly architectural designs. This pocket-sized reference book surveys a range of contemporary biomorphic techniques through 13 case studies divided between three categories: water, earth and geological formation; plants and branching systems; and animal structures and properties. The book is richly illustrated with drawings, models and photographs that draw out the translation of organic forms into visual models. In this increasingly techno- and robocentric era, it’s refreshing to revisit natural forms from snakeskins and bird’s nests to canopied…

shanghai design week

With Design Shanghai now firmly established on the international design map, Design Anthology sat down with the event’s co-director Ross Urwin to discuss how far the show has come since it began in 2014, where it’s going next and what has been most surprising along the way. Design Anthology: Design Shanghai keeps growing and expanding with each successive show, and this year included a number of satellite events around the city.Tell us about those and the strategy behind them. Ross Urwin: It’s always been a part of our mid-to long-term strategy to make Design Shanghai a cultural event on Shanghai’s calendar.The city is so vibrant, design-savvy and hungry for innovation, inspiration and unique experiences. Design has always been an innate part of the city’s DNA. Last year we launched the Design and Arts…

The launch of a new furniture brand is a rare occasion in Japan. The only one within the last decade,MEETEE,started out strong, collaborating with world-renowned designers such as Claesson Koivisto Rune, but never managed to gain global recognition much less widespread distribution. A new contender on the scene, however, is ambitiously presenting itself to the world. Launched at last year’s International Furniture Fair Tokyo, TAIYOU&C. is the brainchild of interior architect Mikiya Kobayashi. Focusing on the soothing properties of wood and essential forms, the brand has teamed up with two of the best wood manufacturers in Japan, Fuji Furniture and Takumi Kohgei, to provide contract furniture that blends well into any space, explains Kobayashi — ‘and particularly public space’. ‘Before I started my own design studio, I was always searching for wooden…

Brewin Design Office is a Singapore-based multidisciplinary design studio with projects characterised by a rich tactility, refined taste and fastidious attention to bespoke craftsmanship. Established in 2013, the studio is helmed by Robert Cheng, whose mastery in creating atmospheres of quiet sophistication is befitting of his latest project — a 200-square-metre wellness and educational centre. There is none of the banality of traditional mirror-walled studio spaces here. Rather, The Yoga School exudes the intimacy and warmth of an abode — not surprising given the client’s request for an inviting, home-like atmosphere conducive to informal discussions and social engagement. ‘As a result of these design considerations, a space inspired to look like a residential living room complete with a pantry was placed at the centre of The Yoga School as an anchoring point…
