Iridescent Entities by Katherine Gray

01. Black Bowl.
02. White Bowl.

Words

The Grey Area webshop has a nice selection of limited edition artist-designed homewares, clothes and accessories, but none grabbed my attention the way Katherine Gray's iridescent bowls did. A bit like a Ken Price sculpture you can slurp things out of, these are sure to make eating even the stalest cereal a treat for the senses.

Dean Edmonds at J. Glinert & Momosan Shop

Words

Dean Edmonds will be presenting a series of new pieces in an exhibition set to celebrate the opening of the new Momosan Shop on Wilton Way. With a private viewing on October 30th, the works in the show are split between two locations – J. Glinert and their new neighbours – and offer an experiment in steel and a homage to the string chair. Dean himself says that "using an all steel construction the string has become a structural element in-turn reducing the structure itself." While the work may appear somewhat brutal on first viewing, Dean's aim is for the structure to "show the beauty and fragility that steel can possess much like the string of the chair that was at first the inspiration." The exhibition will be a great opportunity to view the London-based designer's work in the flesh, while the new Momosan Shop will offer a range of homewares, design objects, printed matter and accessories.

Pete Raho: Gowanus Furniture Co.

Words

In a new video series presented by Mount Gay, The Original Spirits project takes an in-depth look at artisans who share similar values to the Barbadian rum producer: handmade, high-quality, history and progression. With an emphasis on unique products, Pete Raho's Gowanus Furniture Co. aims to create items for the modern consumer with a strong reference to the past. Located in Brooklyn, New York, he's best known for the Kentile Cutting Board, but it was his Treehouse Window Planters that grabbed my attention. While Raho is one of several subjects highlighted by these short films, his designs especially resonated because they have a classic warmth which would feel immediately natural in your home.
