Minimalist lighting and maximalist wallpaper both make an appearance in this week’s product news
Danish design studio Space Copenhagen is launching three new collections this autumn: Howard (shown above) was inspired by lighting the company designed for the Howard Hotel in New York; Unbound is a pared-back take on a traditional Japanese paper lantern; and Private is a collection of storage and display furniture pieces with clean lines and symmetry. The new pieces are available from GUBI.
The Fire Line Automatic 3+ (FLA3+) from Planika claims to be the longest and most intelligent ethanol fireplace on the market. The new, enlarged tank for the FLA3+ allows users to create a seamless and long burning line of fire. There are six levels of flame height and the FLA3+ can be connected to smart home systems for a high level of control and safety. Ethanol fires do not produce smoke, ash or soot.
Enigma, new from Crucial Trading, provides pattern and texture in a choice of nine colourways – from muted to high volume. With names such as Enchanted Forest and Shooting Star, the collection ranges from deep red and green to more neutral shades. Enigma is woven from 100% New Zealand wool – chosen for the purity of its natural colour. The tufted loop pile provides a textured, zig zag pattern that is bold yet considered.
Paint and wallpaper specialist Lick has collaborated with multidisciplinary artist Yinka Ilori to launch two new wallpapers and coordinating paints. Yinka called on his British-Nigerian heritage to conjure up maximalist designs in lilac, blue, pink, yellow and green, celebrating the joy and optimism of colour. Lick launched the designs at the Locke apart hotel by decorating two of the guest rooms, a happy antidote to the grey British summer.
