July/August 2019

From a groundbreaking seaside museum in China to an elegant new sofa by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Azure’s July/August issue unveils the 20 winners of the ninth annual AZ Awards!

ICFF, the lynchpin at the centre of New York’s annual design week, expanded in both scope and size in 2015. Officially rebranded to include a wider variety of products, the fair also added a second showroom. Sophisticated luxury reigned, even in pieces with an industrial edge, with quality and craftsmanship front and centre.

Left to pursue their idiosyncratic aesthetics, the off-site shows displayed an abundance of character. Sight Unseen Offsite embraced the resurgence of Memphis, with bold, bright and geometric designs at every turn. The Collective Design Fair, with its eye on the collectible market, showcased art-infused furniture and objects with luxe materials and finishes. And Wanted Design, with exhibitors from every corner of the globe, brought together an exuberant collection unafraid to experiment with form or function.

Colony, a gallery modeled on a co-op structure, celebrated its first anniversary with a small but exquisitely curated collection of one-of-a-kind pieces drawn primarily from North American designers. From ornate gold and industrial black to breathtaking textile art, founder Jean Lin’s selections were a highlight even in a week crowded with fantastic design.
