LOOP.pH_image.jpg

Sydney Design Festival 2019 brings inspiring exhibitions, talks and workshops to town. Here are five Fizz faves for getting your design on!

BY SOPHIE DAVIES

Sydney Design Festival is back for 2019, unpacking new design, sharing emerging and established talents, and tackling design challenges. This year’s theme is ‘Accessing Design’, making design accessible to fresh audiences, with the action spread beyond the obvious inner-city hot spots. Running from 1 to 10 March – but with many shows lasting longer – the festival also shines a light on local design, including indigenous creativity, hosting events from exhibitions to talks, workshops, open studios, screenings and parties. Here are five of our #SDF19 Fizz faves…

Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris Street, Ultimo

London designer Rachel Wingfield, co-founder with Mathias Gmachl of Loop.pH, will give the festival keynote speech at Ultimo’s Powerhouse Museum. Launched in 2003, their spatial laboratory is known for cross-disciplinary designs that combine digital, light, art and craft details, often in public spaces. Exploring design, architecture and science, Loop.pH’s intriguing installations and experiences harness diverse materials from LEDs, electro-luminous fibres and NASA’s reflective silver mylar to carbon, bamboo and algae. Buy tickets to the talk online or check out Wingfield’s collaborative workshop ‘Archilace’ on Sunday 10 March (3pm-5pm).

Claus Porto Takes Manhattan

New Yorkers can snap up a little Portuguese style with the arrival of Claus Porto’s first standalone store outside Portugal. Olá Manhattan!

BY CLAIRE BINGHAM

Portuguese label Claus Porto is famed for its exquisitely packaged soaps and, more recently, its revamped ‘Agua de Colonia' fragrance collection (right) created in collaboration with leading British perfumer Lyn Harris. However, until now, the company has been very much under the radar – a secret Lisbon and Porto gem for beauty and graphics enthusiasts alike. This is about to change.

RIGHT: British perfumer Lyn Harris has been instrumental in the brand’s revamp, These five new fragrances are based on a modern interpretation of colognes. ‘Agua de Colonia’ collection, £85 each for 125ml

Claus Porto has just opened a store on Elizabeth Street in Manhattan’s Nolita, the beauty and fragrance label’s first retail space beyond their Portuguese home. Conceived by New York firm Tacklebox Architecture, under the direction of Jeremy Barbour, the scheme is eye-catching in every sense. 

Milled from Portuguese cork, 1,500 faceted white diamond tiles line the walls of the vaulted interior, incorporating carved display niches. A 42-foot-long archway has also been inserted into the ground floor of this early 1800s building. Both pay homage to Portuguese architecture and craftsmanship, with the arch and tiles referencing Porto’s Sao Bento train station, which was first proposed in 1887 – the same year that Claus Porto was founded.

BELOW: The 1,500 faceted diamond tiles were milled from Portuguese cork – a material characteristic to the country – and reference the decorative azulejo tiled façade of the historic Casa dos Bicos in Lisbon

The arch serves as a dramatic portal to welcome visitors into the beautifully patterned and scented world of Claus Porto. It’s an otherwise minimal space, with a monolithic marble wash basin at its heart, celebrating bathing rituals. Yes, the interior is cool and futuristic – but the product remains king. What can we say but obrigado!

Claus Porto, 230 Elizabeth Street, New York, NY 10012. See Claus Porto’s website for details of their Portuguese stores in Lisbon and Porto.

LDF 2018 – 11 Fizz Faves for London Design Festival

Es-Devlin-Please-Feed-the-Lions.jpg

Enjoy all the fun of the fair at this week’s London Design Festival, with our 11 must-see installations and showcases around town…

BY SOPHIE DAVIES

This year’s London Design Festival is in full swing, bringing a bewildering array of new design launches and exhibitions to town. We’ve already shared our top tips for the thought-provoking London Design Biennale and festival hub the V&A, but here are 11 citywide FizzPicks for design inspiration, taking in landmark projects, alfresco installations and seductive showrooms.

es-devlin-please-feed-the-lions-trafalga-square-design_col_2.jpg

ES DEVLIN: ‘PLEASE FEED THE LIONS’
Attracting Insta love in Trafalgar Square – as well as confused looks from tourists – interactive design ‘Please Feed The Lions’ is a collaboration between British artist/stage designer Es Devlin and Google Arts & Culture. A fifth fluorescent red lion has joined the square’s big cat statues, roaring out a crowd-sourced, collective poem. Tap in your word via the on-site screen or online to see it displayed in LEDs in the lion’s mouth. The streaming text is also projection-mapped over Nelson’s Column and the lion at night. Naturally, we fed it the words ‘design’ and ‘fizz’.
Trafalgar Square, London WC2 (18-23 September)

British-Land-Landmark-Project-Alphabet-by-Kellenberger-White-_Broadgate-5-1440x1345.jpg

KELLENBERGER-WHITE: ‘ALPHABET’
Sit on a letter or make words with the 26 vibrant, alphabet chairs at interactive installation ‘Alphabet’ in Broadgate. An experiment in folding metal to create a typographic system, the bespoke seats were designed by London graphic design consultancy Kellenberger-White, known for their playful approach to typefaces. Their inspirations ranged from Bauhaus designers to artist Bruno Munari. Each chair is a different colour, daubed in specialist industrial paint, ranging from orange to cornflower blue.
Finsbury Avenue Square, Broadgate, London EC2 (15-23 September)

time_for_tea_header.jpg

SCHOLTEN & BAIJINGS: ‘TIME FOR TEA’
Take ‘Time For Tea’ at Fortnum & Mason with help from Scholten & Baijings. The Dutch design duo will draw on more than 80 global designs for this installation celebrating the dainty ritual, drawing inspiration from the store’s signature eau de Nil colour and gorgeous green hues. The tabletop setting encompasses a new porcelain tea set produced by 1616/Arita, plus furniture, accessories and limited-edition pieces contrasting tradition with cutting-edge Dutch creativity. Featured products include chairs by HAY, Moroso and Karimoku New Standard, curtains by Maharam, and marble tables and flooring by Luce di Carrara.
First Floor, Fortnum & Mason, 181 Piccadilly, London W1 (15-23 September)

TOM DIXON: ‘ELECTROANALOGUE’
UK designer Tom Dixon hosts ‘Electroanalogue’ at his new HQ and shop The Coal Office in Kings Cross. Expect product launches, live demonstrations and workshops exploring digital innovations and traditional craft, including group show ‘Hyper Real’. Mates on board include Bill Amberg Studio (see below), sound designer Yuri Suzuki, Ege carpets, Kirkby Design, Formica, Spiritland bar and Teenage Engineering showcasing a synthesiser in a Seventies-style disco. The space is part of Coal Drops Yard, a cutting-edge shopping and dining street opening on 26 October with design by Thomas Heatherwick.
The Coal Office, 4-10 Bagley Walk Arches, Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, London N1 (15-23 September)

BILL AMBERG: ‘PRINTED LEATHER LAUNCH’ AT TOM DIXON STUDIO
Luxe leather brand Bill Amberg Studio presents a stunning new collection of digitally printed leathers, including British contributions from Faye Toogood, Timorous Beasties and Tom Dixon, and American-based interior designers Alexandra Champalimaud and Natasha Baradaran. It’s a gamechanger for the industry, with patterns spanning colourful sketches, splattered damasks, lace, circles, foil and rock graphics.
The Coal Office, 4-10 Bagley Walk Arches, Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, London N1 (15-23 September)

LEE BROOM: ‘OBSERVATORY’
British boy wonder Lee Broom brings his stellar-inspired lighting collection ‘Observatory’ to his Shoreditch showroom, a hit in Milan and New York. Playing with vertical and horizontal space, sculptural and spherical form, and light reflection and refraction, the third edition of this glamorous yet ultra-contemporary range includes pendant and table lights, making luxe use of LEDs and bespoke bulbs designed in-house.
Lee Broom, 93 Rivington Street, London EC2 (18-23 September)

HOUSE OF GREY
Book online to see House of Grey’s gorgeous North London pop-up exhibition ‘In the Neighbourhood’, a brilliant edit of local and international designers, artists and makers in two residential settings. Curated by Louisa Grey and Morgwyn Rimel, elegant townhouse ‘The Grey House’ creates a calm atmosphere celebrating texture, neutral tones, handmade craft and natural materials. By contrast, loft-style ‘The Blue House’ occupies a converted Methodist congregation hall, with vibrant, bold colours and eclectic contemporary designs. Furniture, textiles, accessories and lighting are on show, flanked by art and plants. Talents include Henry Wilson, Noorstad, Frama, Muller Van Severen for valarie_objects, Dirk Van Der Kooij and Dinosaur Designs.
By appointment only, North London (15-21 September); for availability check here.

THE CONRAN SHOP
The Conran Shop hosts two cracking shows for LDF18. At the Marylebone Store, ‘The Conran Shop x Carl Hansen’ celebrates on-trend indigo, with exclusive editions of the Danish’s firm’s furniture transformed by the deep blue hue. Think Carl Hansen & Søn’s ‘CH4 Wishbone Chair’ by Hans Wegner with an indigo lacquer and Hiut denim seat pad. A stool and chair by Kaare Klint’s also get the denim treatment. At Chelsea’s Michelin House store ‘The Conran Shop x Pinterest’ features a maze of giant red pins, channelling the social media inspo site, while visitors can Pin and save products as they shop using an app and innovative Near Field technology microchips hidden in tags. Pincodes on display reveal the inspiration behind key designs.
The Conran Shop, 55 Marylebone High Street, Marylebone, London W1; Michelin House, 81 Fulham Road, London SW3 (both 15-23 September)

MATTER OF STUFF
Prepare to be transported by London design research gallery Matter of Stuff. In Kings Cross, their pop-up Concept Gallery at Fenman House has been designed by Raw Edges. Hung with wooden dowels suspended by blue string, the space celebrates materials, finishes and texture, including marble and ceramics. It’s the ideal backdrop to Matter of Stuff’s collection of furniture and lighting (by Bohinc Studio and Uufie) plus a curated mix of global brands including CC-Tapis, Made in Ratio and La Chance. Matter of Stuff also explores blown-glass at site-specific exhibition ‘Blown Away’ at Mayfair restaurant/bar Sketch. Don’t miss the new borosilicate glass ‘Bubble’ chandelier by master glassblower Simone Crestani. Magical.
Fenman House, 5 Lewis Cubitt Walk, Kings Cross, London N1; Sketch, 9 Conduit Street, London W1 (15-23 September)

The ARAM GALLERY
Covent Garden’s The Aram Gallery presents ‘Hilos Invisibles’, a collaboration between Montevideo-born designer Matteo Fogale and seven Uruguayan design studios, including furniture, lighting, mirrors and accessories in brass, glass, wood and concrete. Inspired by the work of modernist Uruguayan architect Julio Vilamajó – a design consultant on New York’s UN Headquarters with Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer – the project was born of a 2017 residency and workshop at Montevideo’s Vilamajó House Museum, built by the architect in 1930, and draws on his architectural design details.
110 Drury Lane, Covent Garden, London WC2 (17 September-27 October)

THE NEW CRAFTSMEN
A serene sanctuary, ‘The New Craftsmen x Malgorzata Bany’ offers zen time out from the frenzy of LDF18. Hosted by contemporary British crafts showroom The New Craftsmen in Mayfair, London-based, Slade-trained artist and designer Malgorzata Bany presents her collection of sculptural furniture, objects and table lights, including new additions to the popular range. Materials span Jesmonite, metal and handmade paper, with minimal yet organic forms. Bany also shares her edit of the store’s other makers. And breathe…

NYCxDESIGN 2016

Head to New York for NYCxDESIGN, the annual US design festival that's attracting talent from across the globe...

BY DEE IVA

'New York's a go-go and everything tastes nice'. Well, perhaps not everything, but there are certainly enough treats to be sampled from the Meatpacking District to Brooklyn as the Big Apple hosts the fourth New York design festival, NYCxDESIGN.

A two-week design fair, it has been gaining ground since its 2013 launch and now seems to have reached critical mass with international brands flocking to set up shop in the city that never sleeps. Last year, Dutch designer Marcel Wanders opened the first American Moooi store at 36 East 31st Street and this year Brit talent Lee Broom has launched a pop-up shop, Broom Off Broome, on the aptly named Broome Street (open until 10 June, it will also showcase his new US-exclusive light). Over at the Jacob K. Javits Center (11th Avenue at 38th Street), major trade show ICFF (14-17 May) is home to big brands such as Duravit USA, Fritz Hansen and Tom Dixon and is the hub around which everything else rotates. There's plenty to see around town as well, with events, parties and installations in virtually every neighborhood. See below for five Fizztastic must-sees in NYC this week...

FIVE TO SEE AT THE FAIR

APPARATUS
New York lighting, furniture and accessories company Apparatus is a firm Fizz favourite. Its stylish incense burners, candlesticks and statement lights have been on our radar for a while and the 2016 collection of furniture and lighting, on display at Apparatus' new showroom at 124 West 30th Street (4th floor), is ticking all the right boxes again. Go back to black with the dark glamour of the 'Tassel 19' chandelier and the midnight-hued 'Portal' marble dining table. 
apparatusstudio.com


MOOOI
Dutch brand Moooi is throwing open its showroom doors to exhibit a selection of striking new carpet designs and lighting fresh from their debut at the recent Milan Furniture Fair. Umut Yamac's avian 'Perch' lights were one of the highlights at Moooi's show in Tortona and they're bound to ruffle a few feathers in Manhattan too. We're also loving Klaus Haapaniemi's 'Polar Byzantine Chapter 2' rug with its stylised reindeer and regal birds and the sinister 'Heaven's Gate' 3D woven rug by Marcel Wanders. Look out for Moooi's London store opening in June.
moooi.com


MUJI
Japanese design brand Muji will be exhibiting 'Best of Found Muji', a curated selection of items from its 'Found Muji' collection which celebrates traditional artisanal and industrial products from around the world. Instigated by Naoto Fukusawa, the initiative collects simple household designs that have the pared back functional Muji aesthetic and that could have been Muji products. New pieces will be on show at NY's flagship store at 475 Fifth Avenue alongside an exclusive range of Japanese textiles. Asian fans can catch the brand's first independent Found Muji shop overseas at Hong Kong's PMQ design centre.
muji.com


VISUAL MAGNETICS
The writing's on the wall over at Visual Magnetics which launches the 'Workspace Collection', a new line of interactive magnetic wallcoverings designed to be written on. Grids, graphs, arrows, different colour options and the facility to move pieces around turns walls into oversized notepads with an inbuilt fun factor. If you're in playful mode, there's also a range of brightly coloured magnetic shapes to bring out the artist in you. Designed in collaboration with patternmeisters Dusen Dusen, it's a quick fix for tired walls. You can join in the fun on their stand at WantedDesign Manhattan, a hothouse of international design at Terminal Stores, 269 11th Avenue (between 27th and 28th Streets).

Camron-NYCxDESIGN-Pack-2016-223.jpg

MAST
Mast, Brooklyn's hippest chocolatier, is feted for its innovative flavours and zingy packaging. Each wrapper is a little work of art making Mast's chocolate bars the best dressed on the block. New flavours inspired by sea salt are now available on its stand at Sight Unseen OFFSITE (15th floor, The Grace Building, 1114 Avenue of the Americas), and their cutting-edge showrooms in Brooklyn, Los Angeles and London. Tantalising names like Black Diamond, Bali Reef and Sicilian Coast will excite even the most jaded palates. Mast's recent collaboration with Brooklyn wallpaper design team Calico used a special salt-resist technique combined with watercolour painting to produce what must be the most beautiful packaging ever to grace a bar of chocolate. The question is can you bear to rip it open?

NYCxDesign is on now until Tuesday 17 May 2016. For further information go to nycxdesign.com

LDF 2015 – What's hot at 100% Design?

The big daddy of London design shows, 100% Design, is back in a new venue for London Design Festival 2015. All change...

BY DEE IVA

It’s only a matter of days before London’s biggest design show 100% Design throws open the doors to its brand new home at Olympia. Having vacated Earls Court last year (not more luxury apartments puh-lease), there were rumours of it relocating as far afield as the ExCeL Exhibition Centre in the Docklands. Thankfully, 100% has stayed true to its West London roots, retaining its role as the key design event in the west.

This year, 100% Design has collaborated with trend forecasters WGSN to theme the show around colour. ‘Design In Colour’ will emphasise the importance and impact of colour in the home and will highlight the top colour trends for 2016 throughout the exhibition. As usual, the show will have five distinct sectors, Interiors, Design & Build, Kitchens & Bathrooms, Workplace and Fizz favourite, Emerging Brands. The ever popular Talks with 100% Design forums will once again host stellar guest speakers including Ilse Crawford, Yves Béhar, Afroditi Krassa, Lyndon Neri and The Human League founder Martyn Ware.

We’re gagging with excitement so without further ado, here are our five must-see stands this year….

FIVE HOT FIZZPICKS AT 100% DESIGN

Kirath Ghundoo Interiors
Kirath Ghundoo's geometric wallpapers are unusual in that she has dispensed with the standard notion of a repeat pattern, creating designs that are meant to clash with each other on the wall. However, Ghundoo's tightly controlled use of colour and pattern manages to hold everything together resulting in striking graphic combinations. Her latest 'Mix 'n' Match 15' collection will be on show at 100%, launching the new Tropic and Monochrome ranges inspired by the sea.

botti-unique-ceiling-lamp-01.jpg

Delightfull Interiors
Strike up the band! Portuguese design company Delightfull has tickled our fancy with this witty light fitting. Consisting of 24 trumpet-shaped brass lamps, the 'Botti' chandelier is designed to illuminate a room in multiple directions. Choose from four metallic finishes – nickel, nickel and black, gold or copper and black – and you'll be ready to Charleston till the cows come home! 
delightfull.eu


Bette Kitchens & Bathrooms
It's about time someone redesigned the freestanding bath in a graphic and contemporary way. Bette's BetteLux Shape series utilises the idea of an outline frame to support its minimal bath and basin in the most elegant fashion we've seen for a long time. A range of accessories is also available including a circular mirror and sleek shelf. We reckon the best dressed bathrooms will be channelling this Mondrian-esque look as it's way ahead in the style stakes.
bette.de


Concreate Design & Build
Polished concrete is still probably the most urbane floor treatment in contemporary interiors. But unless you're living in a cutting-edge piece of architecture, they're difficult to install, especially on upper floors. British company Concreate has solved this problem with its ingenious system of concrete panels which can be used to tile floors and walls, bringing industrial chic within the reach of normal homes. Available in four colours and suitable for use with underfloor heating, this sustainable and environmentally sound flooring is ticking all our boxes right now...

Esbe Design Emerging Brands
Two snarling panthers challenge each other on this illustrated sideboard by glass artist Esbe. Influenced by Art Deco and Pop Art, her stylised images are printed on to opaque glass before being mounted on to a matt lacquered or solid wood cabinet. The 'Panther' is the first in a new line of bespoke sideboards which also feature trompe l'oeil drawers and doors. We think Bagheera would approve...

100% Design runs from 23-26 September (23-25, trade only; 26, public welcome), Olympia London, Hammersmith Road, Kensington, London W14; 100percentdesign.co.uk
