JOYCE WANG : AMMO

Once again Studio Annetta comes through with the goods…. introducing international designer and all round over achiever, Joyce Wang.

Having only been in the industry JW now has a high flying reputaion in the interior design world, with her latest interior inspired by a French Sci-Fi movie ‘Alphaville’ by Jean-Luc Godard (cant say ive seen it but its now on the list). WOW it has knocked the absolute socks off of me!! Retro 50’s inspired pieces  plush fabrics, metal studding all sitting against the back drop of  a huge pressed metal star-burst.

THIS is how I want to design. Perfection.

ALEXANDRA VON FURSTENBERG : ACRYLICS

 

I love these brightly coloured furniture pieces by designer Alexandra von Furstenberg, not 100% sure how I would use them….perhaps in Pharrell’s new abode? (I FKN WISH)

So here is a bit (that I blatantly ‘copy and pasted’ from her website) about AVF

AVF attended Parsons School of Design and Brown University, where she studied costume design and art history. In 1995, Alexandra joined the design team of her mother-in-law, American fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg. During her ten year career at DVF as Creative Director and later as Director of Image, Alexandra was instrumental in the re-launch of the iconic wrap dress as well as reinforcing the relevance of this American brand.

 

After relocating to Los Angeles in 2006, Alexandra focused on designing exclusively for the home. A synthesis of art, home furnishings and fashion, the collection consists of signed, limited edition pieces made out of acrylic – a nod to the 1970s when acrylic was widely regarded as the material of the future.

Beginning with a sleek 8-piece collection ranging from side tables to an oversized dining table, the designs were named in honor of their inspiration – diamonds (i.e. “Brilliant,” “Trillion”). The gem-like collection is illuminated with neon colors.

 

Alexandra’s second collection “Voltage,” debuting in March 2009, is made of mirror and smoke-colored acrylic. The 9-piece collection (in addition to an expanded range of accessories) is sultry, bold, and strong. For Alexandra, choosing a darker, smokier palette for her sophomore collection was a natural evolution from the bright, pop aesthetic she embraced in 2008.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL : COLOUR IN INTERIORS

Spring has sprung!! and although im still dressed  head to toe in black (the designers uniform) I am absolutly obsessing over all things colourful.

It is however, only a brave designer that can use colour in such a bold way, Kelly Wearstler has has truly mastered the technique as have a number of the more ‘retro’ designers of our time.
