Dwell on Design 2013 Recap

July 09, 2013 2 Comments

Dwell on Design recently came through Los Angeles. Catering to Interior Designers, Dwell had at once a great mixture of Design, Architectural Materials, and Design Craft. Several trends stood out- Color Pop, Minimal Geometries, Playfulness, Material Juxtapositions, and Patterns (when they happened they made themselves known!)

For me, the most exciting part was meeting with some great ceramicists and seeing a peek at where Unurth can go. As a step up from the curated craft shows, this felt like it was one foot in the trade show camp, one foot in the retail camp, both with a focus on high quality craft and design.

A few of my favorites are below!


Lisa Neimeth Ceramics// 

Gracious and gorgeous ceramics, emblazoned with iconography from everyday life.It was so delightful meeting her in person after having admiring her work and path for so long! Her advice>> Keep at it!


Handful of Salt + 100% CA// 

Handful of salt is a new publication focused specifically at the intersection of craft + design + art. It is so refreshing to see this directly addressed. This intersection has always been the most exciting for me and where I chose to focus my own work. Their curated exhibit, 100% CA showcased California craft designers and the work was absolutely beautiful.

Desigenr: Heather Palmer


The Essence of Things: New Design from Norway//

Light and so exquisitely crafted, this work was both opulent and restrained. Take a peek through the blog and discover new amazing designers.


Designer: Andrea Sengesvik


HAAND//

Handcrafted in North Carolina, this little company amazed with lovely tessellation tiles and flocked (yes!) ceramics, 



Vanessa Gade Metal + Design//

Architecturally inspired jewelry intertwines gracefully with the chain. Gorgeous.

Thanks Citlalli, I did! They were both beautiful in person. I think the coolest thing, though was HAAND’s flocked bowls. I’ve never seen flocked ceramics!

It seems like you had a great time! I’m intrigued by Lisa Neimeth’s tableware and Haand’s ice cream bowls…granted, I’m not a big ice cream person, but those bowls are just too beautiful!
