A weekly Saturday recap to share with you our favorite links, discoveries, exhibitions, and more from the past seven days. This week: a rainbow-colored housewares store in Berlin, the latest extruded-plastic works by James Shaw, a group show of vases by 19 ceramicists, and a highlight from this year’s Design Parade in France (above).
Perfect combination of materials and colors in this Hong Kong cafe and cocktail bar by JJ Acuna / Bespoke Studio. I also like how the trendiness of the wavy mirror is neutralized by the classic Italian style of the rest of the interior, and then a little drip of contemporary is added back in with the red ceiling light. It’s a really nice balancing act.
