9 Favorites from Fog Linen Work

We first discovered Fog Linen while covering two online shops we love, Brook Farm General Store and Horne, that carry their napkins. Upon a visit to the Fog Linen Work site itself, we realized just how great their stuff really is and discovered a bevy of non-linen offerings we loved too! Clean, natural, and beautiful. What more could you want? Here, we've chosen just nine of of our favorites from the shop and trust us, it wasn't easy to choose.

Jens Risom Furniture We Love

“Good design is something that pleases the eye,” says Jens Risom. The Danish designer has indeed created many eye-pleasing furnishings, including the most iconic of his designs, the eponymous lounge chair, among the first to be produced by Knoll. Here are examples of his designs in situ, including in his own family home on Block Island, Rhode Island.

The Salle Residence: A City Modern Preview

This weekend City Modern kicked off with the Manhattan and Brooklyn Home Tours. The tours take design fans inside the doors of some of the city’s most standout residences. This year, one of the highlights was an impressive 10,000 square-foot studio and residence in Brooklyn. The Salle Residence belongs to painter David Salle and is the largest collaboration to date between the artist and designer Christian Hubert. Having worked together on Salle’s former residence and studio, the two resumed their partnership when the artist found he’d outgrown his current living space. Hubert’s strong understanding of the dynamic between art and space led to a long-lasting creative partnership with David Salle that began in 1984 with their first collaboration on the artist’s loft. For Hubert, this foray into the design of a space immersed in art was the beginning of what would become a portfolio populated with a number of art-centric projects ranging from exhibition design at the Whitney Museum to galleries as widespread as Greece and Los Angeles. We were able to catch up with the two during City Modern and learn more about their partnership and the integration of art and architecture in the design process.

David Adjaye for Knoll

It's no wonder that Ghana-born, London-based architect David Adjaye routinely tops lists of favorite living architects and is one of the most sought after contemporary practitioners. His sensibility is subtle, expressing geometry and materials in a sculptural approach that's sensitive to context. His diverse portfolio includes public projects, cultural institutions (his firm, Adjaye Associates, was tapped to design the forthcoming National Museum of African American History and Culture), master plans, and residences (his Sunken House appeared in a 2008 issue of Dwell). Adjaye's latest project is a collection of furniture for Knoll. We sent a few questions his way to learn more. Read the interview in the slideshow that follows and catch an exhibition of the new furniture line along with Adjaye's architectural projects at Knoll's New York home design shop at 1330 Avenue of the Americas October 2 through 31, Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
