Design Within Reach Dotty Clock
Design Within Reach Dotty Clock

DWR Exclusive Australian designer Abi Alice works in many disciplines, ranging from photography and sculpture to sound and product design. Geometry, spatiality and form are frequently explored in her work, and she often kicks off projects by studying the creative potential of everyday materials. The Dotty Clock (2016) began with sticky dots discovered at a stationery store. I was drawn to the varying sizes and bright colors of the sticky dots and began a multitude of playful experiments using sticky dots and colored cards. Through this process, the Dotty Clock was born. Minimal and abstract, the clock is also reminiscent of ancient astronomical instruments once used to measure time by following the movements of the solar system, says the designer. Alices work is part of several permanent collections worldwide, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Runs on one AA battery (included). Made in Italy. Materials: Steel; epoxy resin finish. Measurements:Diameter 8" D 1.75", 2.2 lbs.

Design Within Reach Bold Rug
Design Within Reach Bold Rug

Material research primarily determines all of Jongerius designs. Her vast portfolio includes single pieces exhibited at galleries, mass-produced products sold at retail stores, design of airliner interiors and even the redesign of the North Delegates Lounge at the UN Headquarters in New York. Jongerius was just beginning her career when she was approached by Maharam and invited to work on a project for their 100th anniversary. Maharam now produces 29 different Jongerius textiles, many of which are in the permanent collections at the Art Institute Chicago, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum and MoMA. In addition to conceiving textiles for Maharam, Jongerius creates innovative works for clients of her own company, Jongeriuslab, and serves as the design director at Danskina, a Kvadrat Maharam company for which she dreams up rugs. She has a very clear idea of what makes a successful rug: There are three components that have to make music together: interesting yarns, great construction and the right technique to give the pattern dazzling oxygen. Her Bold Rug (2014) features manually and mechanically spun yarns, resulting in a deeply irregular heavy texture. It strategically employs color to divide its surface, with a body that has two main hues in a 2-1 ratio and an accent hue that demarcates where the fringe begins. Made in India. Materials: 100% wool Measurements:5x7: L 7' W 5' Pile 0.5" 6x9: L 9' W 6' Pile 0.5" 8x10: L 10' W 8' Pile 0.5"
