The Holidays!

All of a sudden it’s the Holiday season all over again. I haven’t even realized we’ve already come to that point of the year, until I heard myself saying to a client this morning: we may be a little late to be included in gift guides if you want to start pushing your end-of-year products right now.
And then it struck me. Halloween is almost here, and so many things are supposed to happen before Christmas!

All events are listed on their website...

After that we may organize a costume contest between our Paris and Miami teams, just for fun, because November is bringing exciting new clients along our way, but we won’t say too much just now. I’ll be Harry Potter in his invisibility cape. How about you?

New Lighting Design: Lucid by CTO Lighting

New Lighting Design: Lucid by CTO Lighting
Mon, Oct 1st 2018

See the latest creation from UK brand CTO Lighting
Lucid

Designed by Michael Verheyden, the Lucid collection was inspired by Parisian brasseries and snow domes. Both functional and sculptural, the light celebrates premium materials, satin brass with oxidized silvered brass, and honed hand-carved alabaster. For the lights, CTO Lighting worked with a silversmith to experiment with new finishes, and with this process discovered a textured finish that compliments the brass and silver.

The Lucid collection boasts a pendant lamp, table lamp, and a wall light in the Lucid 200 and 300 option. The visual effect of the lamp is harmonious with the space, adding an element of elegance and refinement that is easily adaptable to its environment.

The Philadelphia Design District joins PARK(ing) Day PHL - Sept, 21st 2018
Fri, Sep 21st 2018

Don't miss the creative parklets on September 21st, 2018

The Philadelphia Design District is getting ready to shake the streets of Old City District with its first participation to PARK(ing) Day PHL.

PARK(ing) Day PHL, which is held annually on the third Friday of September, provides an opportunity to explore how public spaces could be better designed to serve us all. Throughout the streets of Philadelphia, parking spaces on the street will be transformed into mini "parklets". These parklets will allow people to better understand how much space in the city is given over to automobiles (Philly has 3.7 parking spaces PER HOUSEHOLD) and invite the visitors to engage with cleverly designed, temporary public spaces.

These vignettes or parklets are an opportunity to promote green and pedestrian friendly urban spaces with smart design ideas.

A map of all the parklet locations will be available for download beginning on September 13th on the Philadelphia Center for Architecture and Design website.

Some members of the Philadelphia Design District will create their own parklets sharing their interpretations for design within an urban space. Their goal is to challenge the visitors to consider whether we are making the best use of our limited urban spaces, using their natural creative mindset to turn the public space into a surprising and intriguing environment.

The 50th Anniversary of the Coupé Lamp by Oluce

The 50th Anniversary of the Coupé Lamp by Oluce
Mon, Sep 17th 2018

Oluce : A Spotlight on Coupé's 50th Anniversary

To celebrate Coupé's 50th anniversary, Oluce has created a special edition of a product that has stood the test
 of time and many passing fashions to become
 a classic of interior design. The new version 
of the classic floor lamp style produced by Oluce is available
 in a limited edition of 500 numbered pieces, featuring a sleek, gold trimmed finish and the 50th anniversary engraving on the base.

The original Coupé series, designed by Joe Colombo in 1967, was initially conceived as a variation of the Spider family, also created by Colombo, of which it has kept its base and stem. The simple, ingenious mechanism that connects the stem to the head makes it possible to direct the beam in several directions by moving the dome up, down and sideways.

Available in two versions, with either a semi-cylindrical or a semi-spherical dome, over the years, many models of Coupé have been created (ranging between the historic table lamp to the floor and wall lamps), becoming one of Oluce's most popular and best-known collections.

Today a full-fledged icon 
of lighting and Italian design, in 1968 Coupé was awarded 
in Chicago the International Design Award by the American Institute 
of Interior Designers. The lamp is included in the permanent collections of New York's MoMA 
and the Neue Sammlung Museum in Munich, among others.

Melogranoblu : Spotlight on Massimo Crema, co-founder of Melogranoblu

Melogranoblu : Spotlight on Massimo Crema, co-founder of Melogranoblu
Fri, Sep 14th 2018

Conceived and founded in 1997 by Ermanno Rocchi and Massimo Crema, Melogranoblu is an Italian interior lighting company based in Bergamo, Italy. Over the years, the company has developed a wide range of solutions for interior lighting design suitable for homes as well as offering more impressive installations for large architectural settings.

Hand blown glass is a skill Melogranoblu has turned into an art form, and it all begins with a sketch. During the early creation phases, both partners work with a skilled glass-blower to brainstorm ideas and collaborate their talents into a vision. "Glass is a fascinating material for its lightness and transparency, but when combined with light it transmits the magical emotional effect, our role is to capture that emotion so that everyone can enjoy it," said Crema. With previous professional experiences in the field of the theater, Crema thrives on creating light fixtures that are an ode to scenography. He loves working with architectural spaces because many people can enjoy his products and experience the emotional effect they evoke as well but the uniqueness of these fixtures in that they work in both commercial and private settings.

A destination in itself, the hotel offers a variety of services to appeal equally to local people and visitors from afar. In osmosis with the surroundings, the restaurant and bar are self-contained spaces opening onto the street. Upstairs, the fifty-two guest rooms and streets are modern Parisian nests where it's easy to feel at home. The old building's carriage entrance has been turned into a monumental lobby around which the hotel's various areas are organized.

Get back up again

Happy September folks! After a major slow down during summer - ever tried to work with Europe in August? - we’re all ready to start the new year off like we’re back in school and in the gifted class. This class however is for very busy grown-ups only...and non-negotiable.

I wish I could disclose everything in the Editor’s letter, but I literally can’t, even though there is so much more going on. Funny thing is that yesterday I gave a talk about how one should be prepared for any Design Week to come. Maybe I should organize a talk on how one should get ready for September?  Since we’re in the gifted class, I’ll add this to my project list for October!

PETITE FRITURE: New products this fall

PETITE FRITURE: New products this fall
Tue, Aug 14th 2018

With Maison&Objet just a month away, PETITE FRITURE is ready to showcase some wonderful pieces for everyone to enjoy. From childhood memories brought to life to fun colors that bring life to a space, this fall we will unveil the PING collection and the exciting new colors of the WEEK-END Collection.

PING – COLLECTION
PING originates from a Soviet tin toy, a penguin, placed in Andras Rigler’s grandparents’ food cupboard, and who, in the mind of the then little boy, was monitoring his every move. At that time, Andras was only 5 years old. He went on to morph this fear into a sweet memory, and harnessed it to draw, or rather sculpt, this collection.
Ping is not only a series of 4 containers, but also company for everyday life, in a hall, on a chimney, in a kitchen…

WEEK-END – COLLECTION New Colors
The WEEK-END collection, created by studio BrichetZiegler, integrated the PETITE FRITURE catalog in January 2017. WEEK-END is a full range of outdoor furniture in aluminum grained epoxy paint, with a matte finish that includes 10 functions, 5 colors for the retail market and the NEW 12 complementary colors for the contract market.

A Closer Look at the Philadelphia Design District
An Interview with the Founders: Eugenie Perret and Claudia Roux

What inspired you both to start the district?
CR: Both Eugenie and I, being in the design businesses, we realized that over the past few years the area was rapidly expanding with many passionate business owners in Old City that focused on art, architecture and design.
EP: We felt it was a good opportunity to form a non-profit where we could showcase the incredible diversity of design that was happening in one place.

When did the PDD officially open?
EP: The district was formed about a year ago, after some discussion among the founding members. Soon after, a non-profit was formed and the membership interest followed, and continues to grow to this day. 

What has been the process of growing the PDD?
CR: Our focus is to create good design content and create a community of design-oriented businesses in Old City. We also outreach to partner with business outside of the Old City limits to encourage a collaboration of ideas. Being in a collaboration of the Philadelphia Design District businesses also enables us to aid each other by passing knowledge and gaining visibility within Philadelphia and on a national, and international level.

How did you apply your own experience to PDD?
CR: At Petit Jardin, we are in the business if creativity. Creating the programing for PDD enables us as members to collaborate on design ideas and have the support of a network to see those ideas realized.

What advice would you give looking to start an organization?
CR: My advice is believe in the idea, commit to it and trust the process. Creating an organization from scratch can be a daunting task and it takes time to create. Overtime, you will see the organization grow, and see the positive reaction to it both inside and outside the community. Remember to encourage those within your group, communicate, and learn from each other.

SAVVY Studio unveils Mast Books

SAVVY Studio has revealed the new design for Mast Books. Located in New York’s East Village, the Mast Bookstore will be the second location for the bookstore known for its functionality, simplicity and intellectualism. Taking elements from the original location, the studio has reinterpreted those ideas into the bookstore to demonstrate its evolution.

The Mast Books bookstore is recognized throughout New York as a location that is as cozy as it is artistic, with a functional space that is not overly-designed yet representative of the brand. Therefore, it was important for SAVVY to showcase these elements as well as present the evolution of the store in its new location.

For the second store, the space was reestablished so that books would be the focal point. Each and every book within the store is unique, and like a gallery, the one-of-a-kind books are part of a signature collection. Because of this exclusivity, the entire store was designed to be an organized space, one that perfectly showcases the books without being too cluttered.

I'm dancing on sunshine...

Even though I'm back in France for the next few weeks, there's one thing I did not expect. That twenty years later - I was just graduating from high school back then - the French soccer team would be the world champion again. To be honest, I didn't follow the games, as I was always busy doing something else. But now, I can't help but wear a white dress, red sandals, and a blue purse in pride for this team and the country as a whole.

Now enough with the congratulations: our summer in Miami brings lots of exciting news. A new French designer in the city, Jean-Philippe Nuel, acclaimed interior desi- gner who specialized in the hospitality industry, opened a new office in NYC and unveiled a new luxury cruise ship for Ponant. ATELIER DE YAVORSKY announces the upcoming completion of the Sereno, the mythical hotel in Saint Barth that will be ready by the end of the year. Faithful to its original spirit and initially designed by Christian Liaigre, Guillermo de Yavorsky will unveil his new vision of this Caribbean gem, while young textile artist Sebastien Courty is wrapping up his show in Hyères with his inspired totems.

S2H Miami is also proud to welcome a new client, ateliernovo, a brand dedicated to French craftsmanship and home design for the US market. Be prepared to fall in love with gorgeous ceramics to elevate your dinners. Don't miss out on our lighting either, specifically the lights and latest trends from WantedDesign. Meanwhile I'll keep singing on my way back to the US while I continue to support my US team in Miami. France may be the winner, but my Miami team is the champion.

* Fiore: The 70's inspired flower lamp
In designing the Fiore family of lamps, designers Marta Laudani and Marco Romanelli recovered natural elements and 1970s style recollections, making them the focal point of the project. The lamp becomes the archetype of a flower, with a central core and radiating petals. This single element, made up of a transparent blown glass cylinder that contains the source of light, is joined to a metal body to form several combinations, creating in fact a stylized flower.

* Alba: Inspiration from Nature
Designed by Mariana Pellegrino Soto, the concept of Alba starts with a very simple element: a drop of water, inspired by the designer’s imagination, which was put to use in different ways with each model. References to the world of nature, with soft shapes contrasted with square lines, together with the use of a satin brass finish combine to create Alba, a family with a strong visual impact.

For the apartment building, which was designed by architect Enrique Norten seven years ago, SAVVY rebranded the building with character, using the motto "A Full Living" to represent the revitalized identity of the building.

From the redesigned interiors that feature a classic mix of mid-century modern and contemporary pieces to the branding that represents the iconic nature of the brand, the design studio want the people who choose to stay at Mercedes House to know that it is more than just selling an average apartment. It is a whole new way of living, reinforced by the excellence the apartment building is known for. Along with other aspects of the branding such as the logo and the unique materials of the furniture, SAVVY has also created a video campaign that perfectly embodies the new Mercedes House.

CTO Lighting presents: Nimbus

CTO Lighting presents: Nimbus
Wed, Jun 13th 2018

Creative directors Chris and Clare Turner founded CTO Lighting on the guiding principles of designing lights of uncompromising quality, using only the finest materials and working with elite British craftsmen.

The Nimbus, both a pendant and wall light, is an ode to the elegance and excellence in British design manufacturing the modern luxury lighting company is known for.

Each piece of glass is unique. The droplets are hand-formed by our glass artisans using a process where undulations and crystal-like textures form. The translucent shade contrasts with the crisp solid brass fitting, and is complimented by the beautifully framed symmetrical metalwork. The light emitted is a soft warm glow and is perfectly fitted for corridors as the bulb is hidden within the metalwork and it fits closely to the wall. Referencing both modern and retro aesthetics, the Nimbus creates a stunning centerpiece and transfixes those who see it.

Get to know Constance Guisset's designs for PETITE FRITURE

Get to know Constance Guisset's designs for PETITE FRITURE
Tue, Jun 12th 2018

Constance Guisset, the French designer who created Vertigo, a contemporary icon

PETITE FRITURE, design label created in 2009 by French Amélie du Passage, was born out of the will to promote young talents, and to develop with them a catalog of objects, lighting and small  furniture that would create a vibration. The result 10 years later? An elegant and accessible collection that tells a story in a simple and uninhibited manner; objects that add some spice to our daily life, and invite us to savor it.

This month, we highlight the talent of one of the designer the brand has worked with ever since its inception, Constance Guisset.
Petite Friture and the Paris-based designer are a lifetime best friends and have created many successful projects together. Crowning this long lasting friendship in 2018, Constance Guisset's work was showcased in a solo exhibit in Paris, at the world renowned Musée des Arts Décoratifs. A perfect opportunity for the designer to show how Petite Friture designs can transcend spaces and sparkle joy in anyone's environment.

Fri, Jun 8th 2018

Sebastien Courty is a French textile artist based in NY. For the summer season, the artist goes back to France to showcase his latest work, six individual hand stitched totems that embody six different countries, their natural and manufactured resources.

TEXTILE ARTIST PRESENTS HIS FIRST SHOWCASE IN HYÈRES(FRANCE)
"TOTEM"
WEAVING IS TALKING
June 28th-July 24th - Gallery LM Studio

5 Bis Rue Portalet / 83400 Hyeres
Open: Tuesday to Sunday 11 am to 6 pm

Each totem is handmade, wavered by Courty himself in his atelier. He picked countries based on the materials they export most, as an opportunity to draft a singular identity through natural resources and commercial success.
The six countries are Peru, Ivory Cost, Tanzania, India, China and New-Zealand. Each weaving - framed in an elegant wooden box - features natural and manufactured materials. Silk, cotton, gold thread, rubber, corn fibre, copper yarns, beads and other precious stones will underlap in meaningful patterns. The dimension of each panel (13" x 60") enables the visitor to dive in each country's culture and learn more about their social and economical life.

Summertime

The Design Week season is officially over! After Paris in January, Milan in April, and NYC in May, S2H Communication is back in the office. Now we can spend eight hours a day in our comfy suite, watching the view every once in a while on the Miami Bay, and discuss what we have coming up next...

The good news is even though summertime could easily bring us down with the humidity, high temperatures and constant rain we have in Miami, our creative clients always have something cooking that gets us going. This is how we keep our rhythm going strong!
