Solid Table from Normann Copenhagen

Back in 2012, we reported on a marble-and-elm table by Norwegian designer Lars Beller Fjetland. At the time, he was just finishing up school at the Bergen National Academy of the Arts and exhibited his work with other students in the Greenhouse section. Since then, the prototype has been picked up by Normann Copenhagen and was released at the 2013 Milan Furniture Fair. The piece is now available from normann-copenhagen.com.

Stamberg | Aferiat

After visiting The Saguaro in Palm Springs during Modernism Week, we found ourselves hooked on the Stamberg Aferiat + Associates renovated hotel and wanted to see more from the duo behind it. Lucky for us, they recently released an update on their 1997 monograph and they’ve shared some images with us. The book features 21 projects from the body of work by Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat over the last three decades. While The Saguaro shows their mastery of color, a look through the book reveals the firm also has a strong command of a neutral palette. Dwell and The Saguaro celebrated the book’s release at The Saguaro during Modernism Week. Editor in Chief Amanda Dameron introduced Stamberg and Aferiat, who spoke about some of the projects spanning their career. Click through for images of the event and a peek at some of the projects featured in the book.

SaloneSatellite Winners 2013

Every year we visit the Salone Internazionale del Mobile fair in Milan, and every year we save SaloneSatellite—the portion of the fair dedicated to young designers under the age 35—for last. This year marks the 16th iteration of the show, created by Marva Griffin Wilshire, who alongside esteemed judges from around the world welcomed hundreds of entrants and 17 international design schools to display their creations. The theme this year was "Design & Craftsmanship: Together for Industry" and for the fourth year in a row, Griffin Wilshire and her jury presented the SaloneSatellite award to six winners.
