3. Lesmeuble by Nima Abili

As the line between fine art and design becomes increasingly blurred, Nima Abili stands somewhere in the middle, crafting furniture that is just as much a feat of engineering as it is a work of art. His work has been described by scholars as ‘multidisciplinery,’ as ‘fusion of art, craft and design,’ as defusing the line between the natural and the abstract.

Inspired by geometric forms and repetition, he creates limited edition and unique pieces in Los Angeles using a variety of construction materials and techniques. His approach focuses on ancient traditions, striving to revive their spirit in unorthodox, unexpected and innovative manner. Pulling from his interests in contemporary art and architectural design Nima is always trying to push the boundaries. He’s interested in designing challenging pieces where the process is as satisfying as the product.

4. LOQ

This is one of my favorite new discoveries. They clearly know their brand and they fill their stream with brand-reinforcing and very stylish pics. Oh, and Solange wore a pair of their handmade shoes in her Cranes in the Sky video. LOQ is derived from the surnames of Keren Longkumer + Valerie Quant. In 2011, the co-founders met while studying footwear design in Los Angeles. They immediately realized their mutual affinity for unconventional forms, proportions, materials and attention to detail.

The partners originate from opposite sides of the world, Valerie from Los Angeles and Keren from Nagaland. LOQ fuses California’s relaxed sensibility with the rich colors and textures of India.
The duo founded LOQ in 2015. The intention is to redefine classics for the modern day woman.

5. Leslie Newman

I have been really enjoying Leslie’s daily graphic art pieces. She challenged herself with the #100dayproject and I sincerely hope that she offers these incredible designs as prints when this is all done. She’s amazed so many that I want on my walls, I’ve started to lose count. Definitely worth following.

8. Department Of Artisans

“In May 2016, Carmen Tsang and Pawel Nowak created the Department of Artisans. After traveling to over 50 countries combined, a deep passion for culture and craft was developed. As ideas evolved and conversations progressed, we realized that this wasn’t only an issue in developing countries. Artisans everywhere are discouraged by large corporations and have limited platforms to share their craft. We decided we wanted to stand for all artisans of the world. And for the nomads around the world, we are able to bring you handcrafted pieces which represent traditional culture that can constantly surround you, right in your own home.”

16. Jocelyn Proust Surface Designer

I am an artist and designer now specialising in the wonderful world of pattern design. I have been decorating all manner of surfaces including walls, paper, canvas, fabric and ceramics for some time, along with working more formally as a graphic designer.

More recently I have been seduced by the limitless possibilities that pattern design provides. My process usually begins with working in my sketchbook with pen or watercolour or cut paper. I then transform that work digitally into patterns and designs. I love a graphic, clean style of design and love bright, bold colour. Living on the north coast of NSW, Australia, I am inspired daily by my beautiful surroundings.

22. Nichetto Studio

n 2006 Luca Nichetto founded a multidisciplinary design studio in Venice, Italy, which specialised in industrial design, product design and design consultancy. From the very beginning, this studio collaborated with a number of different brands and organisations, quickly expanding its influence far beyond Venice and Italy’s borders. Five years later, in 2011, Nichetto opened a second studio in Stockholm, Sweden. This practice was founded in response to an ever growing number of requests for collaboration from international companies, with the studio’s work also broadening out from its initial focus on designed objects. Nichetto Studio has since expanded into areas such as interior design and architecture.

23. Veselka Bulkan

“I am Veselka and welcome to Little Herb Bouquet. I live in Munich, Germany. I am fully inspired by this nice city. I love being able to hear the sound of bicycles and dog paws everywhere. I love exploring nature, long picnics, cycling around lakes in Alps. I get excited especially observing the changes of the textures with the transition of the seasons. It is invaluable to visit local farm and flower markets, and then take a break to have a good coffee together with friends in a cozy cafe.

After several years having fine arts education in painting department, and so with my love of designing new things, I focus on design more and more. I realize how I like to spend quality time to bake. All the sounds of kitchen, and styling. Little Herb Bouquet is inspired by all these thoughts.”
