Twentieth is proud to exclusively represent Larose Guyon in Los Angeles

Verchères, a small picturesque village along the St. Lawrence River near Montreal is the home of Larose Guyon, the company founded by Audrée L. Larose and Félix Guyon. Together they work with luxury materials to yield highly original lighting fixtures that possess a keen attention to detail. Their versatile, customizable designs are as much about the warmth and quality of the light as the object itself.

Liane

Liane is a part of La Belle Époque collection which revisits the elegance of the late nineteenth century with artisanal metal objects. The designs recall machinery from the same era re-contextualized to fit into a modern luxury aesthetic.

Le Royer

In contrast to La Belle Époque collection, Le Royer focuses on simplicity through a modern lens. All frills have been dialed down to reveal a smooth and minimal structure. Available in numerous custom configurations.

 

Otero

The Otero chandelier, named after Spanish-Parisian dancer and courtesan Caroline "La Belle" Otéro, is another object in the collection La Belle Époque. Fine metal chains add shimmering layers of detail that are both elegant and imposing, channeling Caroline Otero's exotic style and passion for jewelry.

Perle

Hand-blown glass balls sit atop a brass bar to create a minimal and elegant suspended lighting statement. Available in single, double, and triple globe designs. 

All lighting designs are available in copper, brass, black & nickel.

Stickbulb was recently featured in an article by The Editor At Large citing them as winners of this year's Best in Show at NYC x Design. Below is an excerpt from the publication:

"A light installation composed of redwood beams—carbon dating says they’re three centuries old—salvaged from a downtown Manhattan water tower has garnered much attention and taken home NYCxDESIGN’s Best In Show honor for the year. 'Ambassador,' a 16-foot-wide by 8-foot-tall installation by lighting brand Stickbulb in collaboration with RUX, radiated an arc of light over attendees at the Collective Design Fair, held at Skylight Clarkson Sq.

Nearly 150 beams were salvaged for the installation, which was designed to reflect the towering redwoods characterized in John Steinbeck’s book Travels With Charley. (In the classic, the author writes, 'The vainest, most slap-happy and irreverent of men, in the presence of redwoods, goes under a spell of wonder and respect.')

The NYXxDESIGN Awards, the second-annual competition from Interior Design magazine and ICFF, is designed to highlight top products and projects across New York’s month-long design fest. The Best in Show categories were originally intended to source the best of each anchor show (WantedDesign, Collective, ICFF) but this year folded the three categories into one, with Stickbulb honored as top dog across the three shows.

A panel including David Alhadeff of The Future Perfect, Emmanuel Plat of the Museum of Modern Art, Clodagh, Clive Wilkinson, Mark Zeff and other global and New York–centric design and architecture notables was tasked with choosing winners from this year’s selection of some 700-plus entrants, spanning two categories: product (wallcovering, lighting, furniture and more) and project (such as boutique hotel, health and wellness, and urban landscape).

Winning firm Stickbulb was founded five years ago by Yale School of Architecture graduates Russell Greenberg and Christopher Beardsley and has been rooted in the pair’s passion for architecture, modular systems and sustainable manufacturing. Stickbulb has worked with brands including Google, Facebook and Whole Foods, in addition to creating private commissions for hotels, offices and residences.

The brand’s LED fixtures are designed by RUX and made in New York, from reclaimed materials found locally via demolished buildings and sustainable forests. For the 'Ambassador' installation, Stickbulb sourced locally: As co-founders Greenberg and Beardsley tell EAL, 'The construction and dismantling of water towers in New York is scheduled and methodical and there is a market for the reclaimed wood, for sure. Following a lot of research and development, we’ve developed strong local relationships that allow us to get access to select material that is optimal for the fabrication of our products. A big part of our business and philosophy is sourcing beautiful reclaimed wood that has a meaningful and poetic history.' "

 

"The Most Epic New Furniture Collection We Spotted at ICFF

If you didn’t know that New York designer Anna Karlin had a background in set design, you might have guessed from this latest batch of photographs, showcasing the collection she just launched at ICFF in an appropriately brooding setting. Full of luxurious, sculptural pieces of lighting and furniture, the latest collection showcases Karlin’s interest in constantly tinkering with different mediums, as the pieces move from blown glass and carved marble works to larger endeavors like cast bronze, wooden and metal sculptures that hang suspended off a wall-mounted peg rack. In one of our favorite pieces, a sphere of Portuguese pink marble balances on a cube of brass-plated steel, smushed into a dimple of hand-blown glass; in another, a perfectly curving brass-plated steel chaise is lined with soft, cushioned bolsters — a form that in another life might be a pool chair, but here is the epitome of chic."

Twentieth now represents NLXL wallpaper.
NLXL wallpaper uses implied textures that stretch beyond graphic designs into life-like representations of materials such as marble, wood and concrete. This appearance is further enhanced by the fact that none of the designs repeat.
Below is a small selection of styles along with some insight from their corresponding designers.

PIET BOON

"Concrete with its sober, subdued character is one of my favorite materials. And now there is this fabulous wallpaper which lets one transform a space, be it a wall or ceiling easily and in a very affordable way. Another huge advantage is that minor damages don't show. They seemingly disappear naturally in the structure."

STUDIO JOB

From Job Smeets: “Where do you put the paintings?”, I hear someone asking, frowning. My reply: “The white wall behind a painting is an idea of modernism. In the 17th and 18th centuries, it was not uncommon to present art on silk wallpaper with very busy patterns. But let me put it another way: you don’t need paintings with this wallpaper. This is beyond styling.”

Perished by Studio Job

 

PIET HEIN EEK

“A lot of companies have made marble reproduction products, but never in the way we envisioned it. So we decided to give it a try. When the printing proofs came in we were thrilled. You just want to install it everywhere! Besides marble we were working on other materials, like a Burnt Wood wallpaper. We decided that we could not do this without the expertise of Maarten Baas, famous for his Smoked furniture collection. Maarten liked the idea, and together we made a Burnt Wood wallpaper.”

In case you missed it at Salone, here's Lee Broom's Time Machine, an exhibition celebrating his ten year anniversary.

konekt-table

Twentieth is proud to exclusively represent Konekt in Los Angeles.

At the core of Konekt is Helena Sultan, a former photographer and award-winning documentary filmmaker. Helena developed her eye at an early age, influenced by the rich colors and layered textures of her mother's abstract oil paintings as well as the patinated metal of her father's gritty industrial plant. Helena further honed her sensibilities as she traveled widely, absorbing different cultures and influences. These various experiences have culminated in her signature collection of furniture shown below.

Every piece is handcrafted in Pennsylvania by skilled master craftsmen and artisans. All woods are sustainable American hardwoods, hand-finished with the finest oils.

pause-chaise

PAUSE CHAISE LOUNGE
Created to unwind from the demands of daily life, the Pause Chaise Lounge inspires stillness and peace. Designed to embrace the body, its organic contours complement the human form while creating a feeling of lightness.  

a-cepa-mirrorA. CEPA MIRROR
Crafted from solid bronze, the A. Cepa Mirror draws the eye with its rich material and sculptural form.  

pause-chairPAUSE LOUNGE CHAIR
The Pause Lounge Chair, intended as the ultimate seat to unplug and relax, plays off Konekt's signature Pause Chaise. Balance is achieved with its modern, organic design and expertly upholstered seating. The curvaceous fiberglass shell embraces the body, the upholstery is meticulously hand-sewn, and the four splayed metal legs taper down to teardrop-shaped feet.  

petra-coffee-table

PETRA COFFEE TABLE
The legs of the oval-shaped Petra Coffee Table are inspired by the legs of a camel. The Petra features a precision cut, honed marble tabletop and sculptural legs of cast bronze.  

konekt-chair

BIANCA ARM CHAIR
This solid wood chair is crafted by hand, using mortise and tenon joints. The sweeping, sculptural armrest creates a striking silhouette that embraces the body. An upholstered back-pan is optional while the upholstered seat provides a high level of comfort and a floating appearance. Tapered, splayed legs extend in an elegant curve from the top of the seat-back to the floor. The Bianca Chair is equally at home around a table or standing on its own as an accent.

 Time Machine

"Within an abandoned vaulted storage room next to the historic Milano Centrale station, a white carousel spun—the only object in a raw, unfinished space. On that carousel, visitors found reimaginings of furniture, objects and lighting drawn from ten years worth of English designer Lee Broom's collections.
Together, the collection captures the magnificence of Broom's work, as both a catalog of well-executed ideas and as a conceptual exhibition unto itself."

Laurent 11/Mile

"Mile is a technical lamp characterized by an asymmetrical luminaire. Created in direct collaboration between the company's founder and the Canadian designer Guillaume Sasseville, Mile is a highly-featured design lamp, in which the use of linear LEDs and embedded cables in the structure accentuates the 'absence of gravity' almost creating the illusion of levitation."

Established & Sons collection is revitalized with Sebastian Wrong at the helm.

"The utilitarian feel of the furniture that we have made is somewhat at odds with the cartoon graphic surface that covers it, and I feel this marriage illustrates perfectly the success of the collaborative process."

Cluster/Top Pendant Light

"Futuristic and faceted, Cut is an exercise in optics.  Its space-age mirror finish when off transforms to reveal a translucent kaleidoscopic gem when switched on. Hypnotising reflections of the luminous orb within repeat infinitely within the diamond cut, vacuum metallised interior."

"Striated, ribbed glasswork casting complex compositions of shadow, light and color played a big role at Euroluce, the biannual lighting-focused exhibition presented under the Salone umbrella. New York City-based showroom Roll & Hill exhibited a new rectangular Kazimir pendant, a layered, dichroic piece designed by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio and named after the Constructivist artist Kazimir Malevich."
