In 1999, designers Monica Calderón and Ursula Verea founded the Mónica Calderón Studio in Mexico City, specializing in polyester resin products.
Recently, they have invited many architects, designers and artists to co-develop the Cala furniture and homeware range in resin, combining resin with marble, wood and bronze, respecting the aesthetic and technical style of each designer.
The Cala Resin Collection was unveiled at the recent Mexico Design Week. “We have been focusing on researching resin materials for 19 years, becoming experts in the field and exploring their various possibilities, so this time we thought about combining with other materials and found a partner to co-create,” said Monica Calderon.Taktil Collection by Paula Lawrence
Paula Lawrence, a graduate of the Riga Academy of Design and Art, has created a new Taktil series to help children with autism spectrum disorders expand their sensory perception.
The Taktil collection consists of 12 pieces in 8 materials designed to create different tactile sensations when touched by children. Paula Lawrence explained: "Tactile stimuli of various textures help children focus, overcome sensory sensitivity and relieve anxiety."
It divides target users into three levels: the first level is for especially sensitive children, the second level is for children who can control more tactile stimuli, and the third level is for children with anxiety or panic attacks.
The entire collection is made from a variety of materials including silicone, wood, clear plastic, aluminium, cork, bristles, felt and silk. Each product can evoke a different tactile sensation.Greg Natale's first set of accessories
Australian interior designer Greg Natale has released a collection of 50 items for the home, including organizers, vases, ashtrays, bowls, coasters, trays and more.
17 years ago, Greg Natale started his interior design business in Sydney. This is the first set of home furnishings he has designed since founding his company, having previously experimented with tile, carpet and wallpaper designs as well. The collection was chosen because he couldn't find what he was looking for when he was decorating for a client.
"I love home décor and for me they are the finishing touch to a room. It took me a while to find the best craftsmen to create this collection," says Greg Natale.
The entire series took three years to produce, using a variety of high quality materials. The lids of the drawers are inlaid with stained-glass linings, massive brass bowls have felt feet, and candlesticks, vases and trays are carved from marble and stone.
"I love natural materials such as marble and seashells - they offer a wide variety of patterns and colors. I've also always been a fan of metallics and I think brass can bring warmth and shine to an interior." < /p> Klapp by Ole Petter Woollum for KAOS
