New from Note Design: Marginal Notes #2

Read Article

Note Design Studio opened "Excursion," its second "Marginal Notes" exhibition at the Lindelöf showroom and gallery Wednesday night. Eagerly awaiting the follow-up to last year's collection, I trekked over to the space Thursday morning to see what the design group released. Their bright, pop sensibility (let's just say that they're armed with a palette of neon hues and aren't afraid to use it) was reflected yet again in the designs, which were inspired by thoughts, musings, and sketches captured in their notebooks. Here's how they describe the methodology: "We went deep into the forest to explore, measure, and collect…We examined our notebooks in search of the ideas in the margin—those unique sketches that pop out when you look again…Many seemed to have a common theme that we simply called "Base Camp"; the simplistic materials and shapes of scientific field expedition tools adapted to stand wear and tear." The way that these objects were reinterpreted consistently had me standing there nodding to myself and saying, "well, now, that's clever." Have a look at the designs in our slideshow and see for yourself.

  This attractive lamp features a paper shade based off of an origami tetrahedron. One trend in virtually all of the new lighting designs is wrapping the cord in colored material—a detail I consistently loved, though it's not the newest trick in the book.

  Though Note describes the Tuck pouffes as being derivatives of knit hats, they look more like mushrooms to me. I do like that the magazines can be stored between the upturned edges—every detail serves a purpose!
