Let there be light.

For Jean-Luc le Deun, photographer and founder of Le Deun Luminaires, the forces of light and dark have always been a matter of art-- the medium has simply changed. Where light was once an integral ingredient in the outcome, it now takes center stage as final product.

MOOOI DESIGN IN SPACE

Imagine a Victorian home: Vast windows complete with lavish molding. Dramatic arched doorways leading to spaces filled with texture and delicate detailing. Vibrant. Charming. Now, imagine hosting a 21st Century party among the historic interior architecture: Fast music playing over a series of speakers. Quick conversations taking place in spaces filled with a mixture of senses. Vivid. Bold. It is an act that would require a graceful balance of tradition and modernity. In an unexpected welcome, Moooi has managed to strike this exact balance in its design aesthetic.

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the strongest.

MONTIS DESIGN IN SPACE

Inspiration is often drawn from history, whether directly and consciously, or subtly and subconsciously. Take, for instance, how Italian Renaissance artists were inspired by ancient forms, or how pop artists rebelled against those same tenets of classic art.

Montis displays its design inspiration by staying true to its roots of Scandinavian design, whose aesthetic is typified by minimal, light creations designed to make life better and more beautiful for all-- true democratic design.

INTERSTUHL DESIGN IN SPACE

A change in schedule. A missed train or delayed flight. A sudden turn of the weather. Life is defined by our ability to adapt. The products we use to navigate life and its inevitable bumps in the road should, too.

Interstuhl, a family-run German design company, takes this statement to heart, and to the heart of its products: ergonomically designed chairs. Because we so often spend long periods of time tucked behind a desk or into table, every Interstuhl chair is designed with the body in mind and is created to facilitate active sitting.

USM MODULAR FURNITURE DESIGN IN SPACE

Form follows function. For USM Modular Furniture, this is less of an overused adage and more of an integral part of company history.

The company, which began under Ulrich Schaerer as a hardware and locksmith business, was expanded in 1961 by grandson Paul from a manually-oriented factory to a full-fledged modern industrial plant.

VIOSKI DESIGN IN SPACE

Modern design as we know it is dynamic. It is an ever-changing landscape that conforms to few rules, yet continuously forges just as many of its own. It is rare, though, for a singular design to be able to do the same.

Enter Jeff Vioski, the creative vision behind the L.A.-based Vioski. His pieces, such as the Shea sectional and Isola lounge, are designed with flexibility as the core tenent of the creation.

THE REPUBLIC OF FRITZ HANSEN DESIGN IN SPACE

The Republic of Fritz Hansen™ is not merely in the furniture business, it is in the business of creating classics.

The company’s official history begins in 1872, when cabinet-maker Fritz Hansen obtained a trade license in Copenhagen. In 1885, Hansen, along with his son, established a furniture production company. Within a few short years, Fritz Hansen’s order resume included The University Library, Copenhagen City Hall, and The Supreme Court.

JOHN FORD DESIGN IN SPACE

Passion. Expression. Tradition. Just as the things we are capable of creating vary from person to person, so do the forces that drive us to create. Oftentimes, it is not a solitary force, but many that work together.

Take, for example, the WB Chair by L.A.-based designer John Ford, which was born from watching his son’s fascination with gazelles. The animal’s profile -- lean, agile, and strong – is translated into a solid wood chair that masterfully uses a curved, solid wood ribbon as both backrest and armrest.
