Rounding out our week of coverage we stopped by to see the new MATTERMADE collection at Matter HQ on Broome Street. The second in-house collection from the design retailer highlights the diversity of new American design with incredible new work by Paul Loebach, David Weeks, Christopher Specce, Moorhead & Moorhead, Harry Allen, Bec Brittain and Jonah Takagi.
Paul Loebach's Glacier is a series of five CNC-milled solid poplar forms. They are substantial yet subtle—the black stain on the wood gives the pieces a more somber appearance although the actual forms are quite dramatic.
Bec Brittain's copper "A-Shades" cast a warm glow exploring varying degrees of an angular shape.
Harry Allen's playful reinterpretation of a familiar suburban outdoor sight, now brought indoors. The cedar "Shed" even has a special compartment under the sloped roof, perfect for storing those heavy winter blankets.More snaps from the MatterMade collection and some independent design from this year's NY Design Week exhibition.
