New & Notable is a cultural catchall that highlights interesting new products and projects from our brilliantly creative members of The List. With new releases, events, and goings-on, the below moments indicate the power they have to move the needle in so many realms, including architecture, design, fashion, and art.
“A sphere is the ideal geometrical figure,” French silversmith Jean Puiforcat once quipped. “And the curve, close to the circle, is a more noble line than a straight one.” That sentiment comes to light in the heritage French silversmithing brand’s Archival Trunk Show, taking place at Just One Eye in LA through April 1, which contains some of Puiforcat’s most recognizable Art Deco pieces such as the Socoa tea and coffee set, Visionnaire shaker, and Hamac cup.
With Henrybuilt sister company Space Theory’s new Daylight Island, the open-concept kitchen has reached its zenith. Designed as a standalone piece, Daylight uses a relatively simple base—a 24-inch grid of welded steel beams—and delivers a multitude of customizable storage options that are both flexible and beautiful.
Spring is fast approaching—and we’re all eager to enjoy the outdoors again after another pandemic winter. McKinnon & Harris’s newly launched Accessories Collection of richly textured performance throw blankets and pillows make the transition from indoor to outdoor lounging seamless and comfortable.
Israeli graphic designer Michal Lifshitz debuts a new collection of her signature 100 percent silk scarves through a campaign shot against the Dead Sea’s otherworldly landscapes. Each scarf’s vibrant abstract pattern expresses an exploration of the human body, nature, and inanimate objects in motion.
Celebrating the archetypal form of the totem, a spiritually grounding symbol that represents union, Âme’s Totem series features lab-grown diamonds set into restrained bars of white, yellow, or rose gold. The collection unites a series of circular forms with miniature stacking blocks, inland with pave, linear baguette, and channel-set diamonds that emanates delicacy with finesse.
The First Fifteen Years, MB&F’s first catalogue raisonné (a common document in the art world, but not so common for consumer brands), features 312 pages of information about every single timepiece the Swiss horology brand produced from 2005 to 2020. Within its pages, more than 400 photographs tell the story behind the full collection, including the model names, reference numbers, materials, years in production, and the exact quantities produced.
Renowned British designer Paul Smith lends his signature colorful splash to the Type 75 Floor Lamp from Sir Kenneth Grange for Anglepoise. Decked out in a head-to-toe black finish, including the brand’s signature springs, Smith’s stripe of cheerful colors add eye-catching elements to the timeless fixture.
Intended for all skin types, Cultus Artem’s Hydration Elixirs are botanically derived moisturizers packed with premium ingredients and made with traditional, labor-intensive techniques. Each variety—Moisture Milk being our favorite—is designed to be layered for maximum hydration or used solo, addressing specific hydration needs in blends of pure botanical oils, vitamins, antioxidants, potent actives, and plant extracts containing anti-inflammatory components.
Across 5,000 square feet, JANUS et Cie’s new showroom in Coral Gables, Florida, features the outdoor furniture brand’s distinctive furnishings, performance textiles, and indoor/outdoor accessories that stand ready for purchase or specification. Conveniently, the website also offers a VR experience so designers can peruse remotely.
Art For Change has launched a print of Judith Bernstein’s Gasligting Forever—a provocative, humorous, and colorful interrogation of contemporary sexual politics—and will donate proceeds of the sale to Art At a Time Like This, a nonprofit digital-first arts organization focused on supporting artists who deal with the now in their art.
The burgeoning Brooklyn arts organization, which produces engaging public art and supports the material and fabrication needs of local artists, has appointed Marcia Santoni as its inaugural executive director. In her new role, Santoni will spearhead efforts to provide arts access to the creative community in Bushwick and East Williamsburg, build the organization’s capacity, and launch a capital campaign to renovate its 10,000-square-foot warehouse into a state-of-the-art fabrication facility over the next three years.
