Last year I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Kips Bay Decorator Show House whilst in New York during New York Design Week with Modenus and Blog Tour. This year the design and inspiration is just as fantastic and fresh. Below is Timothy Whealon's take, on a part of the Kips Bay Show House for 2016. Timothy who is an interior designer who specialises in high-end interiors, beautifully embraced the geometric pattern within his design. The almost pastel prints work superbly amongst the light walls and gold furniture. Timothy Whealon incorporates a foundation of classicism into his designs with a fresh perspective which makes them timeless and contemporary. He creatively mixes items from different periods and cultures making each interior unique. Custom pieces are also often incorporated into his designs and his work is enhanced by his knowledge of the international art and antiques market and also by his team of skilled artists and craftsmen. Geometric prints in both fashion and interiors will be seen everywhere from the catwalk to the high street. This is definitely a trend to look out for in 2017.
To celebrate landmark sales of 50 million Pedal Bins, global interior design brand Brabantiaintroduced their newIcon Pedal Bin range with Plastic Whaleat Exclusively Housewares trade show last week. I was invited to the launch event and it was wonderful being present at this worldwide launch. Brabantia has collaborated with Plastic Whale, the first plastic fishing company in the world and together they have made a collection of stylish bins which are made from 40% high-grade recycled materials, and after use, 98% of the bin and packaging is recyclable. What is also fantastic, is that for every newIcon Pedal Bin that is sold, Brabantia will support Plastic Whale to ‘fish’ more plastic out of the waters across the world, ready for recycling. Plastic Whale is a social enterprise with a mission to make the world’s waters plastic-free and create value from plastic waste. It started five years ago with a single challenge to build a boat made of plastic waste. Today, they have a fleet of six design boats made from Amsterdam's Canal Plastic. This beautiful collection, out in October, is available in 3, 5, 12, 20 and 30 litre sizes and the bins come in a selection of thirteen colours including three, which are inspired by the colours found in nature; Daisy Yellow, Pink Clay and Moss Green. Brabantia and Plastic Whale have a fantastic incentive with the launch of the newIcon collection and just as Brabantia's UK sales director, David Slater said: “Doing good is feeling good. By buying a newIcon Pedal Bin, consumers will be helping to reduce the plastic pollution in our waters. We want to enrich Brabantia consumers’ lives with beautifully designed products that are a pleasure to use, whilst being a good choice for the environment too. At Brabantia we care about what we make and the impact it has on our planet, and we’re proud to design recyclability into all our products. We are moving towards 100% recycling within the next generation; the newIcon Pedal Bins take us one step closer to this goal.”
Brabantia is at the forefront of designing recyclability into their products. This is a positive and wonderful movement in design.
