Previewing Newblood: Injecting October 2nd
Elevating the dialogue around design and style in San Francisco, the New Black continues to find creative maverick’s across the globe. Here’s a little bit about the new team: Available for the first time in North America, the NWBLK is introducing the reverential, and often flawless, work of designers Overgaard & Dyrman of Copenhagen, Denmark. With bleeding hearts for traditional craftsmanship and refined details, Overgaard & Dyrman is a contemporary design brand located in Copenhagen, Denmark. By merging traditional craft techniques with modern technology, Overgaard & Dyrman’s approach to design, bridges the past with the present. A collaboration between artist Fernando Viastrangelo and Interior Designer Samuel Amoia, “New York’s Amma Studio is re-contextualizing form and function, only this time, with materials that are not in the traditional canon. Rock salt, sand, coffee, silica, and pink himalayan salt have never been thought of as materials for furniture, but with a unique casting process that also fuses more traditional materials such as cement or plaster, AMMA creates a body of work unlike anything before.” The Amma team is outfitting the new Stella McCartney stores with a number of their pieces. We are partnering with maverick design manufacturers Blank Blank from Courtland, CA. Hidden in a remote part of California’s central valley, NY designer Rob Zinn and his partner Anna Pavao Zinn have quietly been developing innovative furniture, lighting and objects with designers like Mike and Maaike, Tim Richartz and more. The NWBLK is also partnering with gallerist Heather Marx, HMxAA, for a show titled Shift. Opening during the #newblood event October 2, 2014 from 6-9PM, and running through December 15, 2014, the show features artists Michael Arcega, Mary Button Durell, Matt Gil, Amanda Hughen, Kimberly Rowe, Andrew Shoultz, William Swanson, Arngunnur Yr.
