Cherry blossoms in Finland

It took four years to craft, but it was worth the wait. The design industry is cooing over this new collection, the love child of two design icons: Japanese fashion company Issey Miyake and Finnish home design brand Iittala's collaboration flaunts perfect organic shapes and delicate colors, mixing technologically innovative and traditional materials. Jeremiah Tesolin, Creative Director at Iittala, has lifted the veil for The LuxPad: "The topic of Iittala and Miyake Design Studio sharing the same values and mutual respect towards each other came up in the discussions between Iittala Design Director Harri Koskinen and Miyake Design Studio. We admire the work of Miyake Design Studio very much and we were thrilled when we got the response that the feeling and the willingness to collaborate was mutual. The discussions and the product development started from there and now, after four years, the collection is ready and launching."

These were the Days…

Thanks to their daughter, Paula, Robin & Lucienne Day (star designer couple whose input to the British Modern design is equivalent to what Charles & Ray Eames brought to the US) are in the limelight again. London-based design store twentytwentyone is hosting a selling exhibition of almost a hundred pieces of furniture and objects from Robin and Lucienne Day’s home. The designers, who spent 70 years living together (until Lucienne's death in 2010, followed a few months later by Robin Day's), collected or made each of those pieces, gathered and exhibited for the first time.
