We love to collaborate at Studio Ombre, whether it's with designers for our graphic work, photographers for our interiors, or artisans who create our bespoke cabinetry and cushions.
In the spirit of working together we're focusing on successful springtime collaborations where a new season and a fresh set of eyes creates something some new winning designs.
We love the fresh jewel-tone pastels (that aren't too different from our own homewares palette) and the quirky shapes that give this Toadstool series its name, and the subtle mix of marble with textile. A winning combination for us!
Christophe Lemaire isn't widely known despite being the former creative director for Hermès womenswear, but his relaxed, effortlessly elegant designs are a fashion industry insider favourite. His first collaboration with Japanese mega-brand Uniqlo is due to drop this spring.
Although the collection is heavily influenced by the seventies, which isn't our decade of choice - see our blog post Redemption For The Decade That Style Forgot - we're in love with every piece, particularly the menswear which seems younger and fresher than Lemaire's namesake brand.
Pleats are mathematical, three-dimensional and extremely tactile, so a video is the best way to really see how beautiful these pieces are. We have our eye on the tableware and shopping bags.
Perhaps better suited to commercial interiors, these wallpapers look monumental and we could see them working well as flooring as much as on walls, particularly the jagged concrete. Magic.
Ok, Tom Dixon is a little overexposed and he may have overstretched his brand a little too far but this collaboration with Caesarstone looks unlike his other work (note the absence of copper) and seems far more restrained than his usual aesthetic.
Inspired by jagged blocks of ice, the aptly named Ice collection is the first in a year-long series of installations based on the elements. What will fire and wind bring to this solid collaboration?
