Off the Grid by François Chambard and Frederick McSwain

A recent show at Gallery R’Pure in New York explored the meaning of life ‘off the grid’ for the urban explorer. While Off the Grid is nomadic by nature, a cohesiveness in color, materials, and aesthetics brings together complimentary pieces from two designers. François Chambard and Frederick McSwain designed their respective pieces independently while maintaining an ongoing conversation about the dual notions of ‘off the grid.’ Symbolizing both a method of design and the concept of stepping outside of an organized society, a camping theme provided the basis for their exploration. Updating the typical ‘great outdoors’ palette of olives, browns, and grays to brightly hued reds and blues is an instant indicator the pieces are more attuned to a city adventurer. A generous use of color-infused anodized steel and aluminum offers a weighty counterbalance to the bright disposition of the items, and gives them a monumental weight. While you’re not likely to carry them along on your next hike, we can easily see these cheerful pieces the highlight of a domestic camp destination in any city.

Kickstarter of the Week: Time Fold

Our favorite Kickstarter campaign of the week comes all the way from sunny Tel Aviv, Israel, where Studio Armadillo is looking to drum up a few shekels for its ceramic suite of ritual Jewish objects, Time Fold. Inspired by the art of paper folding, this set of geometric objects—candle sticks, a menorah, a mezuzah, and a vase—began as origami before being translated into handmade ceramics. We love how the four pieces in Time Fold do double duty as objects of traditional worship and as modernist bits of tabletop decoration you'd be happy to have out all year.
