Beam Lamp: Discover Fall’s Modern Expression of Light

The first design ever by emerging Canadian designer Tom Chung for Muuto is Beam Lamp—a table light that is inherently modern in its expression and function.

David/Nicolas First Solo Show is a Reflection of Beirut City: Supernova

Paris, design and creativity… It’s all getting closer and we are very excited and proud of Lebanese design-duo david/nicolas who will be having their first solo show of new works at Carpenters Workshop Gallery in Paris. Supernova, the name of the show, brings two distinct bodies of work that explore different sides of the pair’s multi-faceted practice: Constellation and Monocle, each an interpretation of a post-explosion phenomenon. Through a collection of tables, cabinets and rugs, david/nicolas built upon their fascination with time and the universe to create a retro-futuristic ensemble that speaks to the beauty of regeneration.

Before anything, let’s just tell you that a...
