REVIEW: Collective Design Fair, NYC, 2017

May 05, 2017

Peter Lane and his heavy ceramics were very inspirational. To think that we could collaborate to create a room of ceramic was very exciting.

To see Jennifer Steinkamp’s video work is still a thrill even after more than a decade of watching those trees blowing in the wind.

Maison Gerard certainly did not disappoint! Achille Salvagni’s lighting as always is timeless and spectacular as it frames the armoire and illuminates the entire booth.

We were thrilled by the large height changing black lacquer coffee table by Maison Jansen.

We also loved the sofa shape Maison shred with trim.

3 Dimensional printing was alive and well with a couple of my favorites pictured here as a part of “The Vanguard Series” from a group of forward-thinking design talent presented by OTHR and Collective Design.

Here, French designer Marie-Victoire Winckler’s God Save the Queen is 3D printed celadon and gloss white porcelain with 3D printed gold steel in a limited edition of 5, and selected by India Mahdavi for Collective.

This geometric vessel combines 3D printed matte black porcelain with 3D printed polished gold steel (by Chilean design studio GT2P, nominated by The Met’s decorative arts curator Christian Larsen). For more information and additional work in this series, see OTHR‘s website.

Paris was well represented by Chahan….we particularly liked their limited edition chandeliers and the pair of chairs by Marco Zanuso.

And the metal work of Aldo Chale at LeClaireur shared an incredible table surface.

London dealer Hugo Portuondo shared a few pairs of shearling wrapped chairs, two of which found their way back to Chicago!

Sculpted foam was on display from David Gill in London as well. The fantastic work by Fredrikson Stallard was flocked to appear like sculpted velvet, and it was quite convincing actually!!

And R and Company, of course, brought characters from the Haas Brothers…which always produce smiles.

The ceramic color blocks by Kelly Lamb as candle holders were fun as well.
