This week’s product launches

A hand painted bath, upcycled paint and a very clever downlight – here are the products that caught my eye this week

During Clerkenwell Design Week, Clearwater Interiors collaborated with artist Emily Forgot to create Apricity a hand painted design on an engineered stone bath. The concept, born from colour studies of the four seasons, wraps around the bath to visualise replenishment, invigoration, relaxation and the calming nature of the changing year. The limited edition bath is now available from Clearwater Interiors.

Enamel Blue upcycled paint, new from Mylands

Mylands has launched its Upcycled Paint Collection. The matt finish paint, suitable for interior walls and ceilings, is made from unwanted leftover paints and materials. The base paint can originate from a number of sources: sample colours, returned orders, leftovers from making a colour batch, however it will only ever be made from original Mylands quality paint. The unwanted paint is then grouped in small batches of similar colours and tinted. There are 20 shades to choose from including Soho Pink and Enamel Blue.

Henry Holland Studio Pour tiles for Bert & May

Tile maker Bert & May launched the Henry Holland Studio Pour tile during Clerkenwell Design Week. A hand poured tile finish is available alongside a glazed tile, both in four colourways. The collection translates Henry Holland Studio’s signature aesthetic, a take on the hand-built nerikomi ceramic technique, into tile form.

The art of nerikomi involves the mindful stacking, folding and rolling of multi-coloured layers of clay to create graphic, fluid-like patterns that are structured yet unstructured at the same time. (you can take a look round Bert & May founder, Lee Thornley’s, house, here)

This is clever – Zuma Lumisonic Pro for John Cullen

Zuma, the award-winning speaker light producers, have announced a new partnership with John Cullen Lighting. Together they present the Zuma Lumisonic Pro for John Cullen Downlight. This ground-breaking product brings together Zuma’s speaker-embedded light solution, with the lifestyle-focused, architectural elegance of John Cullen’s lighting expertise.

This high performance, multiroom audio and lighting system is incorporated into an ultra compact, completely recessed downlight. A ceiling-flush design means, when installed, the unit is totally unobtrusive, only revealing a discreet pinhole baffle – with all other components hidden out of sight. The downlight can be plastered-in flush, but if you need to remove the unit a clever release system ensures you don’t damage the plaster in any way. 

Leather marquetry mirror from Marrikur

Rubelli Parade wallpaper
Harlequin With Fiddle. Detail from Luke Edward Hall’s wallpaper design for Rubelli

Drawing inspiration from ancient Greece and the circus Luke Edward Hall’s wallpaper collection Parade, invites viewers into a world of gods, goddesses and actors. The British artist clearly had fun creating this collection for Rubelli featuring his signature watercolour illustrations. Parade is available in both vinyl and non-woven options with printing in monochrome or soft colours.
