Issey Miyake x Iittala

Ittala x Issey Miyake-1-Design Crush

 

Designers love Japanese fashion house Issey Miyake, and now they’ve partnered with Finnish brand Iittala to create a range of homeware which includes pleated place mats, tote bags, and more. The collaboration – Issey Miyake x Iittala – has been in development for four years and includes thirty textile, ceramic, and glass pieces for the home. The technology developed for use in the pleating is fascinating, employing a technique that uses steam to pleat the fabric into origami-like patterns as well as a process that involves baking material in an oven. And that pastel palette? Perfect for spring.

Chris Earl

Chris Earl-1-Design Crush

 

Chris Earl‘s upbringing in Papua New Guinea instilled in him a respect for creating objects to fulfill a purpose, create a story, and build community. He puts it all into play in his line of furniture, tabletop, and ceramics where that trifecta is the guiding light. Functional, graceful, and timeless.

PINCH

PINCH-1-Design Crush

 

I’m currently sipping some green tea as I type, and I’m wishing it were out of this PINCH cup and saucer instead of a mug I’ve owned since college. Inspired by ancient clay oil lamps, this matte porcelain beauty excels at elevating a mundane experience.

One of the main rules I follow when decorating my own space is this – keep walls and furniture neutral so you can go crazy with accessories. Laura Slater‘s arrestingly bold textiles that focus on the intersection of color and shape are just the kind I’d like to throw into that role.
