Salon Art + Design 2019 is definitely going strong with a couple of highlights that will certainly give a memorable touch to this year’s unique edition. Aside from having some of the most highly regarded art galleries and furniture players showing off some of their best creations, there’s no doubt that this incredible event will have a lot on the table. However, to ease your tour through this event CovetED will be pointing the highlights you definitely need to watch out for.
Alexandra Champalimaud and Charles Burnand
Two top players teaming up? Who wouldn’t want to see that, right? It seems that Alexandra Champalimaud has conceded a capsule collection for Charles Burnand mainly composed out of organic modern forms and cosy fabrics. This collection is another incredible example of the way she handles her design challenges: her consideration for how people move, sit and interact with a space she handles.
Apparatus’ Lighting Designs
These New York lighting designers have done it again! You will have the chance to take a look at their latest addition to their new Interlude collection. It consists of a supremely luxurious floor lamp in line with their style. Apparatus is well-known for their unique take on lighting products: we’re talking about a group that’s used elements such as hand-dyed eel skin or luminous Chinese porcelain to create some innovative lighting design.
Mathieu Lehanneur’s mix of old and new
French designer Mathieu Lehanneur has created a new site-specific installation for the Salon using a mix of new and old designs. This is another unmissable initiative from a man who’s known for sculptural works that combine technological elements with classic ones. Perhaps one of his most notorious examples is his Ocean Memories collection in which he maps the movement of water in a marble table.
R& Company with Pierre Yovanovitch and Haas Brothers
Another weight presence of the event is R& Company introducing a couple of their best crossover creations. This will include Pierre Yovanovitch‘s “Love” exhibition (currently at the gallery’s White Street location), along with some of the unique coffee table of the Haas Brothers. The showcase will also have other interesting elements such as the feminist ceramics by Katie Stout, or the midcentury furniture by Magnusson Grossman.
The Future Perfect: the stools by Reinaldo Sanguino
Lastly, as we’ve mentioned on our article regarding the best of day 1, another spot not to be missed is the immersive installation which features the highly coveted stools by Reinaldo Sanguino, a Venezuelan-born ceramicist. These incredible chairs blend in abstract art with coveted furniture in a set definitely pleasing to the eye.
