During our recent visit to the ICFF trade fair in New York we were drawn irresistibly to the eye-catching display of mirrors at the Bower Studios stand (and that's not just because we like the image reflected in the mirrors).
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Bower Studios is a multi-disciplinary design collective with a surprisingly refreshing collection of furniture, lighting and accessories, especially mirrors. By using clever shapes and even cleverer use of colours (including antique tints) some of the designs create intriguing 3D effects even though the mirrors are all flat. Decorative, functional and fun, these are perfect for narcissists in need of an excuse to linger in front of mirrors.
Intrigue and delight with lights that are not what they seem, such as the Lampscapes suspension light from Frederik Roije, the Moto wall light from Moustache and the Concrete floor lamp from Lyon Beton.
We love to use playful, slightly surreal accessories to add a bit of fun. The Hang On wall hanger from Normann Copenhagen resembles jumbled up coat hangers, whilst the Spoiled Copper wallpaper from NLXL looks exactly that. For sheer indulgence what about the solid brass There (Push Pin) candle holder from Ghidini 1961?

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?

American artist-designer John Eric Byers cites, amongst others, Donald Judd and Richard Serra as sources of his inspiration. The influence of these American masters of minimalism are clear to see from the furniture he has created.

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
