Sister Parish and Parsons Unveil Collaboration
The fruits of a monthslong partnership between the MFA textiles program at Parsons School of Design and Sister Parish Design are finally here. “The collaboration has explored the future of craftsmanship, how we can reimagine what ‘Made in America’ means today, and what it takes to create and train the next generation of craftspeople in America,” Susan Crater, Sister Parish’s granddaughter, says to AD PRO of the line of textile design products. “We have learned so much from the very talented and inspiring students, not only about exciting technology, but also about how the love of past techniques and practices can fuel the ideas of the future. It has been an extremely energizing and inspiring collaboration from start to finish.”
Exciting Mirrors and the Lights Debut
Natalie Erwin Nagim has launched a new floral mirror brand, fittingly titled Fleur. Products from the three collections, which are named Garden District, Audubon, and Carnival, already have the stamp of approval from the likes of Nicky Hilton Rothschild. The designs, which have been created alongside Riley Sheehey, are available to purchase through Over the Moon.
Elsewhere, AD100 firm Commune has teamed up with Remains Lighting for a collaboration inspired by the Viennese Secession. The influences of French 1950s style and the Milanese modernist movement can also be traced in these conical fixtures, as can Commune’s signature sense of California design.
Designs From Italy and France Arrive
Holly Hunt’s website, and North America showrooms, are stocking an exciting new wall coverings brand: Armani/Casa. As of now, the showrooms are selling the luxe Italian interiors products for the first time.
