Industry Gallery: Getting to Now
Industry Gallery in Washington DC is the only gallery dedicated to 21st-century design in the US, and they've got a new show up right now that's of some interest. Getting to Now: Pathways to 21st Century Design is on through August 21st, and what intrigued me was no so much the roster of splashy designers it shows off (the Campana Brothers and Marc Newsom, for example) but a trio of DC-area designers and artists holding court with the big guns. Have a look to see what the mid-Atlantic is contributing to the national design conversation through the work of Joel D'Orazio, Tuesday Winslow, and Patrick McDonough.

High Design Rugs by Italian design studio, Nodus is a limited edition collection of computer generated artwork, graphed and translated to a loom where each piece is hand knotted, producing intricate works with graphic impact. The Collection shown for the first time in the U.S. includes works from Studio Job, Nacho Carbonell, Kiki Van Eijk, Campana Brothers and Front Design.
Nodus brings together modern technology with ancient craft and develops relationships with the most innovative designers to create brave and enduring rug design.
Refreshments will be served.

A huge trend this year (and what seems like forever at this point) has been faux hunting trophy wall sculptures. These sleek and minimal reindeer sculptures are festive and modern. As part of a collaboration with Port-au-Prince workshop Caribbean Craft, West Elm worked with artisans in Haiti to create these cheerful reindeer. Made from recycled materials.
