AZURE’s November/December edition explores some of the category’s most innovative spaces, from a new model of urban retreat by Ace Hotel in New York City to a cutting-edge concept store in Lisbon.

 

Beaming Bobber lighting series by Frederik Roijé

Offering a subtle sense of whimsy, these pendant lamps from Frederik Roijé evoke wooden fishing floats or buoys. Made in the Netherlands, the powdercoated metal forms are fitted with an opal diffuser that creates a gentle glow. Available in Round and Pencil shapes, the series features colour combinations of dark grey, white and red.

 

Ping by Petite Friture

Childhood memories of a Soviet tin toy inspired the Ping series of containers, which designer Andras Rigler is launching with Petite Friture. As a young boy, Rigler was convinced that the vintage toy, kept in his grandparents’ kitchen cupboard, was watching his every move. The four-piece collection includes Ping Grand Pere, Mama, Papa and Bebe, which range in height from 21 to 10 centimetres.

 

Notic lighting by Oblure

Swedish lighting brand Oblure picked Maison & Objet to debut a new series of lamps, set for launch to market next spring. Realized in wall sconce, pendant, and table top versions, Notic pays tribute to classical architectural detail with graphic patterns carved into the laser-cut steel shades.

Fitted with an opal glass diffuser, each version of the lamp provides a focused down light.

 

Orbital by Alain Gilles for XLBoom

These ring-based candle holders, sold in a set comprising three sizes, are meant to represent the orbiting planets of a galaxy. A collaboration between Belgian designer Alain Gilles and furniture and accessories brand XLBoom, the brass- and bronze-finished steel pieces are meant to be used in groups, setting smaller sizes within the rings of the larger ones, or in planetary alignments.

 

Salt/Pepper Vessels by Lukas Peet Design

The winner of Maison & Objet’s Emerging Designer Award in 2014, Canadian designer Lukas Peet was invited to return to the show this year to show how his work and his career has evolved. Among the new projects he’s debuting in the show’s new section, “Born and Raised,” are two vases and the Salt/Pepper Vessels shown.

Cast in solid stainless steel, the pieces are finished in black and white gloss enamel and filled by removing the conical glass stopper. A subtle slit in the side dispenses the contents with a side-to-side shake.
