Tylko x Yves Behar
Tylko is a new furniture label that hails from Warsaw. The brand made its debut at London Design Festival with a table that they produced in partnership with Yves Behar: the HUB table can be customized through an app or online, allowing the user to determine features such as height, shape or the finish. A new product which involves the consumer.
Tom Dixon has joined forces with Wallpaper for a month long project entitled Multiplex. Taking inspiration from the concept of the department store, the idea is to immerse visitors into a retail environment of the future. Located at the Old Selfridges Hotel, the multi-sensory shopping experience covers fashion, interiors, technology and more with brands such as Sony, Obataimu or Gail’s. Commenting on the project, Dixon said: "MULTIPLEX is a combination between an adventure playground and a space station."
Scandinavian design studio Hem teamed up with Luca Nichetto to create Alphabeta, which they presented at Somerset House. Alphabeta is a series of lamps that can be assembled in different ways, with a grand total of 10 billion possible combinations. Lamps can be customized online, so that each person can have their own unique lamp. The idea behind Alphabeta is to allow people to customise their own lamps in a playful innovative way.
Those heading to the V&A from now until the end of October can expect to see an impressive installation: Zotem was created by Norwegian designer Kim Thomé in collaboration with Swarovski. 640 oversized Swarovski crystals are included in the structure which towers 18 meters high at the entrance of the museum.
