For our money, there's more subtle beauty in Ladies & Gentlemen Studio's Atlas lights—another collaboration with Seattle-based glass artist John Hogan that features a diffuser embedded with layers of silver leaf, mirror, and iridescent glass. But for pure fun, our favorite result of the two studios joining forces this year is their Shape Up collection, which mixes materials like glass, copper, and acrylic as well as geometric shade shapes, and whose elements can be combined any which way.

Hi-Lo Shelving by Moving Mountains

At the beginning of 2014, Syrette Lew of Moving Mountains was a former West Elm designer who'd recently made the move from accessories to furniture. She had a few designs under her belt, most notably a beautifully crafted triangular full-length mirror made from Douglas fir and finished with a shock of bright orange on the back. 

Fast forward 12 months, and Lew is one of the most in-demand designers around—a best booth award at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, a recent collaboration with COS and Matter, not to mention the installation designer behind the Space Ninety 8 pop-up shop we did this summer.

We first fell for their Neo Laminati collection, which channels the 20th century's most memorable design movements into a series of chairs, benches, vessels, and tables in stripes and bright solids.

Marmoreal

At each year’s Milan Furniture Fair, there's so much stuff on view around the city that it takes a LOT for something to stand out in our minds as “maybe the coolest thing we’ve ever seen.” On our first day there this past April, we dragged ourselves, jet-lagged and plane-weary, to Project B Gallery, where British designer Max Lamb was presenting his newest work. And seriously? It was maybe the coolest thing we’ve ever seen.

On Sight Unseen’s Pinterest page, “Color & Geometry” is our most popular board, and it’s easy to see why: there’s something eternally reassuring about basic forms rendered in beautiful or unusual palettes. And these polyethylene and lacquered steel tables by the Belgian husband-and-wife team Muller Van Severen, are no exception.
