Phloem Studio's Peninsula Chair

- Founded by Dylan Davis and Jean Lee, three-year-old Seattle design studio Ladies and Gentlemen has a small, but covetable collection of objects, jewelry, furniture, and lighting all made in the USA.
- With considering the ever-expanding children's market in the modern design realm, the plethora of visitors, tiny people, and exhibitors at The Modern Family Zone at Dwell on Design was not surprising…
Simple sawhorse table, you say? Not so. The top of this table - a mixture of virgin and recycled aluminum - presses directly into place atop its trestle base with no need for nails or screws. The components can be combined with elements from other pieces in the collection to create new designs.
- For those spots where a table will take up too much space and piling your on the floor isn't exactly appealing, try hanging a sling from the wall for a bit of extra decorative storage.
This riff on the leather sling chair by Gordon Guillaumier for Minotti sports a gridded back support.
Domestic lighting is having a sculptural moment with designers eschewing accented shapes and materials in favor of surprising silhouettes. Put aside your task lamps, Edison bulbs, and cloth lampshades in favor of sleeker, more airy modes of illumination that use a light touch with heavy metals (bronze, brass) and new-fangled LED bulbs in place of their energy-gobbling cousin, the incandescent.
- With a bevy of design fairs taking place in New York this week, it was impossible to venture far in the city without stumbling across an exhibition of new design.
A cork seat supported by metal legs pays homage to a bird's nest. Handily, boet means just that in the studio's native Swedish.
