I’ve been a fan of Mini Moderns for so long as I’ve been going to the London Design Festival—I assume the key to their success is that they’re continuously upping their recreation; continuously pushing themselves. Remix is the most effective instance of this but and a very thrilling challenge. With a self-confessed habit to sample, their merchandise up to now have revolved round floor design— wallpaper, materials, ceramics and naturally the Environmental Responsible Paint vary they launched at Tent final yr. For Remix, they’ve given their distinctive colours and patterns to a gaggle of 9 designers they respect and given them free reign. The outcome just isn’t a lot a product vary that pushes the envelope, however a product vary that makes you overlook the envelope ever existed. It takes Mini Moderns into furnishings design, lighting design, glassware, equipment and even window movies—and takes them to an entire new degree—once more!
I notably like Zoe Murphy’s Buddha of Suburbia Drawers above. The sample is impressed by the Mini Moderns Buddha of Suburbia vary and display printed utilizing their Environmentally Responsible Paint – and the drawers are lined with their Darjeeling wallpaper.
The UU 0044 JosphineB Chair by Urban Upholstery (co-founder Patrizia Sottile seen above with Mini Moderns co-founder Keith Stephenson) makes use of Mini Moderns’ Pavillion material along with different top quality materials on an upcycled chair body.
Daniela Gargiulo (seen above with Mini Moderns’ different co-founder Mark Hampshire) of Ivy Arch designed the A-60 lavender luggage and purses, impressed by the Mini Moderns H-60 wallpaper, having met Keith and Mark by way of twitter!
Following an preliminary collaboration with Brume, which resulted within the Whitby Window Film, this within the Darjeeling Window Film. Karen Lansdown, one in every of Brume’s administrators says: “I actually take pleasure in working with Keith and Mark—they’re unbelievable designers and all the time so enthusiastic.”
Benjamin Boyce’s Color Accent Furniture might be probably the most delicate collaboration – he’s easy used Mini Moderns paint colours as accents inside his merchandise.
The MMG Lighting Range (left) was designed by Group Design, aka Jeremy Schotte and Richard Wells. They based mostly the type of the metal body on the sample inside the Mini Moderns Pavilion material, the colors on the recycled paint vary and the shades are all Mini Moderns materials. Matt Sewell’s birds sit on the shelf above. They are comprised of FSC licensed and re-appropriated wooden and painted with Mini Moderns Environmentally Responsible Paint in Lido, Harvest Orange, Mustard, Pale Verdigris and Bitter Chocolate.
Kevin Rimmington and Philip Vian have utilized one component of the Darjeeling sample to the underside of glassware and laid it into espresso saucers, creating an understated expression of this complicated sample.
And final, however not at all least, Leonard Pfeifer’s Darjeeling M1309 Drinks Bar works as a aspect desk in the course of the week, then on weekends could be wheeled into the centre of the room and opened as much as reveal your cocktail making components and equipment, full with fold down cabinets for glasses and bottles.
As Mattie Stepanek stated: “When there’s teamwork and collaboration, fantastic issues could be achieved.”
