Modern by Dwell Magazine Bookshelf
Available in different sizes and configurations, the Bookshelf from the Dwell x Target collection was designed to be clean, simple, and functional. It combines open and closed backing and comes in a wide (shown here) or a tall version—in either white/natural or blue/natural. The three shelves rest on thin steel legs that have cupped sides to give stability. Deam points out, "The bookshelves employ an experimentation with thin steel, but by cupping it to gain strength. This gives them an incredibly thin side profile, which is really unique." Dine continues, "Good shelving that's clean and simple is hard to find these days."

Modern by Dwell Magazine Lounge Chair
Modern by Dwell Magazine Lounge Chair
One of the standout pieces in the new Modern by Dwell Magazine collection for Target is the Lounge Chair. Shown here in white/natural, it’s also available in gray/black and costs only $249.99. Chris Deam and Nick Dine put a lot of thought into the seating pieces in this collection in order to ensure comfortability and functionality. The clean, graphic silhouette is a modern hybrid between an armchair and a slipper chair. A cut-out in the lower back area gives it some breathing room, while the metal legs create a firm foundation by wrapping up and over the bottom of the chair.

Modern by Dwell Magazine LED Task Lamp
Modern by Dwell Magazine LED Task Lamp
Available in either black or white, the LED Task Lamp from Modern by Dwell Magazine subtly shows off the ability to illuminate a thin surface with a built-in LED strip. Designers Chris Deam and Nick Dine put a modern twist on a traditional task lamp by implementing the LED strip, which takes away the need for a bulb. Made up of metal in a white or black finish, the lamp is hollow when you look inside, and lacks a readily visible light source that traditional lights contain.

The Stoneware Bark Vase from our Dwell x Target collection takes a recognizable faux bois print, and puts a modern spin on it by making it black and white. Fusing form and style, it uses over-scaled pixelation to create a digital bark pattern and is available in small, medium, or large. Up-close, the design looks pixelated but at a distance, it snaps into focus—which makes for a fresh and unexpected result.

Modern by Dwell Magazine Owl Speaker Figural in Natural
Modern by Dwell Magazine Owl Speaker Figural in Natural
When tasked with creating something decorative for the new Modern by Dwell Magazine collection, Chris Deam recalled the animal figurines done by midcentury furniture designers. The forms of the resulting designs are guided by function. In the case of the Owl Speaker, which uses the curved shape of its body to amplify music or podcasts from a mobile device, Deam associated sound with the figure of the screech owl—after that, the process called for the "most minimal gesture to capture the essence of the animal." The Owl Speaker is made from solid wood with leather and metallic copper accents. Photo: Courtesy of Target

Modern by Dwell Magazine Whale Coaster Figural in Natural
Modern by Dwell Magazine Whale Coaster Figural in Natural
Setting out to create something decorative is "not the typical starting point for a modernist," says Chris Deam the animal sculptures in the Modern by Dwell Magazine collection. Taking inspiration from the animal figures created by midcentury furniture designers, however, Deam allowed function to dictate form. The wooden whale doubles as a coaster holder in a playful reference to the creature's oceanic home, and serves as a unique tabletop accent. Four coasters and a coaster stand are included.

Modern by Dwell Magazine Elephant Playing Card Figural in Natural
Modern by Dwell Magazine Elephant Playing Card Figural in Natural
"The process of designing the animals was some of the most fun I had on this project," says Chris Deam about the animal sculptures in the Modern by Dwell Magazine collection for Target. Using the animal figures created by midcentury Scandinavian furniture designers as inspiration, Deam drew a web of associations to connect each to its purpose. Made of solid wood, leather, and metal finished in metallic copper, the Elephant Playing Card Figural references the legendary memory of the pachyderm as a convenient case for a deck of playing cards, playfully combining form and function.
