The design scene simply never lets up, as these latest new goodies prove!


Stablight Design Arik Levy, Artemide
These hanging lights showcase the ever-topical art of hand-blown glass and demonstrate the master glassmakers’ skill in passing on their knowhow: several layers of variously coloured glass are blown in a wooden mould. Combining the shapes and colours differently produces original compositions.


Tropical Spirit
Fancy some escapism? Serge Bensimon’s Tropical Spirit selection certainly brightens up the home: new House Cases prints, Cactus vases, cushions sporting plant motifs taken from Cécile Brulé’s photos, Callebasses hanging lamps, crockery by Sarah Campbell.


Hive Design Fabrice Berrux, EGO Paris
This season the French outdoor-furnishings manufacturer has launched a graphically contemporary collection (armchair, settee, stools, loveseat, table and half-table) that employs an alveolar shape to make numerous combinations possible.
