Karl Lagerfeld Picks Chilewich for Chanel Show

Chanel meets Chilewich (Chilewich)

Vinyl fabric manufacturer Chilewich has gone from table runners to the runway. Karl Lagerfeld, creative director for Chanel, chose the company’s stencil-like Cubic lace design for the Spring/Summer 2011 ready-to-wear show at Paris Fashion Week last month. The design, currently part of Chilewich’s tabletop collection, was reproduced into a sheer cocktail dress with feather trim and was one of the last numbers to float down the Chanel runway. (A note on the architecture: The Grand Palais was dramatically transformed into a seemingly post-apocalyptic formal garden with charred black hedges and white gravel.)

NeoCon Wrap-Up

NeoCon may not have the hipster cachet of ICFF or the design world glamour of Milan’s Salone, but every year I come away from Chicago’s Merchandise Mart having seen a lot of great products, and am reminded of the vast size, scope, and importance of the show. And as the way we work and the way we live become increasingly inseparable, design trends in the contract and residential markets are becoming similarly intertwined. Further, many Midcentury classics, now popular in the residential market, were first developed for the contract market. In addition to the great products we featured in our preview, here are a few more standouts from the show.

Antenna Workspaces, Knoll

The big news from Knoll was the Antenna Workspaces (above) collection by Antenna Design. The desk system is built around a table base with clean lines. A variety of box storage, drawer units, and panels can be attached to the center rail. The system looks particularly good when used with Knoll archival surfaces, such as the natural rattan and grass fabrics used in the NeoCon showroom. Read More

The future has let us down in so many ways—still waiting on that jet pack you promised, Hollywood!—but this sweet new gadget should tide us over for a little while, at least. Straight out of Star Trek, it was demonstrated at last month’s SPAR 2010 conference in Houston by Austin-based company Zebra Imaging. The technology produces strikingly realistic holographic models, printed on two-dimensional sheets of plastic. Each hologram is the product of thousands of still images, stored in any format from satellite photographs to (calling all architects!) CAD models. These images are then compiled and printed onto a sheet of photographic film up to two feet wide and three feet long. Read More
