Rothschild & Bickers

As we sit here making samples for our up coming lampshade collection we take a look at our competitors & boy do we love Rothschild & Bickers, Pick-n-Mix collection. Rothschild  is unique in it's kind as their one of the few studios who specialise in hand blown glass for lighting purposes. In fact it requires no further words dive into the world of hand blown glass in a brush of autumn winter colours.

Brand concept: Passionate about the process in which the lights are made, Rothschild and Bickers are driven to ensure all process and techniques are kept within the UK's manufacturing industry, keeping these iconic 1950's style lights beautifully British as they should be.

Doshi Levien

Today we focus our attention on Doshi Levien, unusal name for some unusual furniture pieces.  Casually flicking through the Design Junction broschure we spotted 'Beautiful Backside' as its so casually named. It comprises of a mixture of different shaped cusions with a mixture of material. Beautiful handstiched and crafted. The seating collection was designed for Moroso and launched during Salone 08 in Milan. The collection was inspired by the minature painting of Maharini sitting amongst an assortement of cushions.

Discovery: Design Junction

Brand concept: Celebrates the hybrid and explores the coming together of cultures, technology, story telling, industrial design and fine craftsmanship.   

Materials: Mixed materials
