sustainable design

Over the past decade, the phrase ‘sustainable design’ has become an increasingly familiar refrain in our lives. To begin with, it just seemed like a really good idea; something we should all be supporting in whatever ways we can. But now the conversation is becoming urgent. The recently released Global Assessment report by respected UN research body IPBES (Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services), which combines the findings of nearly 15,000 international studies, reveals that time is running out to save the plants, animals and insects that support human life on Earth. Unless we change our lifestyles (and quickly), some unpleasant shocks lie ahead. This challenge was one of the main focuses at April’s Milan Design Week. Its prominence in the minds of designers served as an admission that…

chubby design

Lozenges, arches and curves have dominated in the design world of late, and now a handful of creatives and makers are taking things one step further and exploring a softer style, embracing playful, marshmallow-like forms and podgy shapes. Russian designer Fedor Katcuba’s ‘Buzz’ chair is typical of the aesthetic, a piece of furniture distilled into the simplest of elements: one continuous squishy line upholstered in rich velvet. So what’s inspired this appreciation for rotund, portly products? ‘My designs took on this aesthetic due to my experiences of pregnancy and motherhood, when everything had to be well-rounded and fall-offable,’ explains Faye Toogood, whose ‘Roly-Poly’ chair was one of the forerunners of the trend. It was also practical concerns that led Tom Dixon to create his ‘Fat’ dining chairs, which are intended to…

hollie bowden

Up-and-coming interior designer Hollie Bowden says her style sits somewhere between maximalist Jacques Grange and minimalist Axel Vervoordt – a contrast, to say the least. ‘I like to mix things up,’ she says. ‘The juxtaposition of bare walls and big open spaces with theatrical statement pieces, complex textures and antiques is something I love. As is Vervoordt’s Japanese-inspired wabi-sabi aesthetic; I use a lot of pieces that have an organic, aged character.’ Her style is evident when you look at the serene villa (top right) she designed in Ibiza, and her subdued yet glamorous palette of stormy hues and marble at the headquarters of sake brand Heavensake (left). Bowden established her Shoreditch studio in 2013 (now with a team of six) and has already amassed an impressive list of projects in…

made in china

It’s almost unfathomable that China, the second largest economy in the world, with a population of 1.4 billion, is at an early stage of development in any field. And yet, for all the country’s economic and technological power, its product and furniture design scene was almost nonexistent until recently. ‘China had a lack of design culture and history,’ explains Sugar Lee, deputy features director and digital content director of ELLE Decoration China. ‘Just ten years ago, we were thought to have no design scene at all.’ That opinion is being quickly reversed. This change in fortunes is thanks to the government’s ‘Made in China’ initiative of 2015, which pledged to reposition the country as a design superpower by 2025. The aim was to distance itself from the reputation of being ‘the…

customisable lighting

Inventive creatives are disrupting the lighting world with a do-it-yourself approach. Their fluid designs can be tweaked, twisted and adjusted to form new shapes, altering the play of light and shade. One of the finest examples of this trend is ‘Interweave’, a concept by Italian brand Artemide and Dubai-based designer Pallavi Dean (above; artemide.com). The innovative lighting installation is composed of aluminium cylinders around which a malleable LED cord can be threaded. The piece touts total flexibility, with the size, number and placement of its tubes affecting the shape of the glowing line – it can even be fitted with speakers, sensors or projectors. ‘Flexible spaces promote a more conscious use of energy and the planet’s resources,’ argues Artemide chief executive Carlotta de Bevilacqua, highlighting the potential eco appeal of designs that…
