Elevate life al fresco with Ferm Living's Desert Collection—and show your love for planet thanks to the soft UV- and water-resistant cushions made from recycled materials.
Designer Francesc Rifé fashions a rectangular aluminum structure for Marset with a choice of covers in metal or Iroko. The minimal and slim box-like encasing conceals the integrated LED, allowing the soft illumination of this outdoor wall-sconce/freestanding lamp to play off the different materials to striking effect.
Now outdoor and indoor upholstered options are available across designer Tom Fereday's best-selling seating collection for New Zealand-based SP01. To go with the characteristic suspended sling profile, this soft seat and connected back cushion is made as hardy as the triple-protective wire frame.
Named for the ancient Greek word for "sea," this outdoor range designed by Note Studio bears a distinctive but reserved pairing of materials—including FSC-certified sustainable teak. The spare lines and comfortable proportions make this a modern must, poolside or patio.
This cordless, tabletop version of Jordi Garcés and Enric Sòria’s design can go anywhere. Its discreet circular base needs little surface area to house a rechargeable battery. Pressing on the outer ring sets full or medium Illumination for up to 14 hours, filtered by a white translucent diffuser.
From sofa to daybed, high back to lounger, the graphic lines of this series by design duo Anderssen & Voll looks sharp in any environ, from residential to commercial space. The exacting proportions contrasts with the invitingly curved upholstered seat and back, and the slender legs lend it an air of minimalist lightness. And now the collection is 15% off...but only through August 16.

The best in design improves the quality of life. And this adage isn't limited to our individual whims. Quality of life is increasingly a matter for the global community, one that means products that consume less energy and minimize waste in manufacturing and post-production. Quality is also matter of lasting durability. In a nod to Earth Day, an LED spotlight on just a few of the dozens of products at A+R produced with a healthy world in mind...
Women might account for nearly half the global population, but design, from architecture to products, remains a man’s world.

In the meantime, a spotlight on a handful of creators—who happen to be women—we can’t get enough of...
