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.”

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.

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.

Mattia Biagi: WHITE LIGHT/PITCH BLACK
March 4 – April 14, 2017

Opening Reception
Saturday, March 4, 2017. 6-8PM
RSVP: info@thenew.gallery

THE NEW 7466 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

Image: Mattia Biagi, White Light it Lighten Up My Eyes, 2017, 45”x 25”, Tar, brass, LED tube, electrical wiring. Photo by Daniele Albright.

 With a play on the Velvet Underground’s album White Light/White Heat, Mattia Biagi’s White Light/Pitch Black exhibition celebrates an art punk aesthetic of recontextualizing familiar objects and subverting longstanding symbols of culture and domestic life.

The dynamics of transformation is a driving concept and process behind Biagi’s work, in particular the transformative power of coating everyday objects with layers of viscous tar. In this context the decorative baroque chandelier, the ultimate symbol of domestic luxury, has its symbolic and cultural value subverted and transformed into an object of unexpected dark beauty, made all the more mysterious by the addition of a single minimal, modern light source penetrating it. The chandelier remains a light source, but not at all with the same meaning or purpose it once had. Its purpose has been undermined and yet somehow made more sublime through a mysterious rather than ostentatious beauty.

Alongside the chandeliers are a new series of round paintings. Here the transformative power of tar is explored on its own terms, as the singular materiality of painting. The black disks are reminiscent of vinyl records, an indirect reference to another type of domestic object. While on one level these minimal yet richly textured tar forms conjure dark themes like voids or black holes, they simultaneously invoke the opposite, their perfect geometric circularity referencing solid presence, totality and completion.

Mattia Biagi (b. 1974 Ravenna, Italy) lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. His work has been presented in solo exhibitions including Election Day at Le Dictateur in Milan (2013) and Fiori at Young Projects in Los Angeles (2014).
Group exhibitions include Storm of Life at Castello di Rivara in Turin, Italy in 2013; Un homme juste est quand même un homme mort at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2013; and Erection at MAMA Gallery, Los Angeles in 2014. Biagi has recently collaborated with Johnny Walker for their Black Label bottle and his work is included in the permanent collections of the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina and the Louvre Museum in Dubai.

 London Design Festival Logo

The annual London Design Festival began on Saturday, September 17th and will run until Sunday, September 25th. Sir John Sorrell and Ben Evans founded the festival in 2003 with the concept of creating "an annual event that would promote the city's creativity, drawing in the country's greatest thinkers, practitioners, retailers and educators to deliver an unmissable celebration of design."
Now in its 14th year, the festival has grown to over 400 events and has spread all over London.

Tom Dixon Harvest Festival Party

For this year's festival, designer Tom Dixon continues his running theme of "furnishing and food," bringing unique design and cuisine to London's Wharf Building at Portobello Dock in Ladbroke Grove. Dixon writes that their mission is "to design, illuminate and furnish the future with innovative lighting, furniture and accessories of longevity, simplicity and a materiality inspired by Britain’s unique heritage."

Tom Dixon and Goldfinger Studio collaboration

Dixon is also premiering a range of benches and tables named Trellick, designed as a collaboration with London based Goldfinger Factory. Goldfinger Factory is an award-winning design, carpentry and teaching platform centered around recycling materials, building bespoke furniture, and allowing artisans to become self-sustaining through craft.

Goldfinger Factory Trellick Building

The exclusive Trellick range has been named after the building in which Goldfinger Factory is situated.

Trellick Range from Tom Dixon and Goldfinger Factory

Tom Dixon's project at Portobello Dock will last the duration of the London Design Festival, from September 17th to the 25th. The Trellick product line is available through a crowdfunding project, which will help Goldfinger Factory expand and reach more members of London's artisan community.
Find Goldfinger Factory's crowdfunding project at http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/fundfuturefactory 

Another site specific installation constructed for the London Design Festival is Omer Arbel's "44" design in London's Barbican Centre. Arbel, the creative director and founder of Bocci, has created a sculptural work comprised of over 300 free-poured aluminum forms, with intertwined lights. 

 Omer Arbel 44 at the London Barbican Centre

"As the sculpture, 44, descends into the space and expands, it punctuates the spaces of the Barbican foyer, engaging with notions of weightlessness and mass, craft and mass-production." Each unique aluminum form in "44" is cast by, pouring molten aluminum into a large canisters filled with rock-like resin shapes." They are then suspended from thin wire with low voltage electricity powering interconnected lights.

Close up of the aluminum forms in 44

Arbel's "44" will be on view at the Barbican Centre until April 18th, 2017.

Moooi unexpected welcome

In central London, Dutch based Moooi celebates the design festival with a continuation of their Unexpected Welcome theme, along with the UK introduction of Paul Cocksedge's foam Compression Sofa.

Kit Miles custom Moooi carpet design for the London Design Festival

Also on display from Moooi is a custom Moooi Carpet design by award winning surface designer Kit Miles. Miles has created a 150 square meter carpet specifically for the entrance of the London Design Fair exhibition and explains that the abstract design is "based on the interplay of shadows and light, inspired by classic Mediterranean architecture, infused with the graphite and urban sprawl of London." 

Find Moooi's showroom at 23 Great Titchfield Street, London.

Lee Broom Opticality

For the London Design Festival, British designer Lee Broom is running a brief exhibition, titled Opticality, out of his East London flagship store. For Opticality, Broom has overloaded his store with his Optical collection of floor lamps and pendants and continues the Op Art theme premiered at Salone del Mobile.

Entrance to Opticality

Broom writes, "The store will become a surreal space inviting visitors to step into an immersive optical illusion. Visitors will become part of the installation as they journey through an infinity of reflections."

Inside Lee Broom Opticality

In Broom's Opticality, mirrors cover the walls and floor with a striped path down the center of the space, leading customers through what appears to be a never ending optical illusion.

Opticality opens on the 21st of September and runs to the 25th.

THE NEW

PRESS RELEASE: June 23, 2016 - (Los Angeles) On June 23rd 2016, THE NEW, a gallery project by Twentieth, will debut with “Elemental”, an exhibition by Christopher Boots featuring new and limited edition works. Coinciding with the Los Angeles Design Festival, the event also marks the launch of THE NEW, a separate exhibition space located adjacent to Twentieth. 
Based in Melbourne, Boots received an industrial design degree in 2005 from Australia’s National School of Design. Since founding his studio in 2011 his work has grown an international following and includes projects for Hermes and the National Gallery of Victoria.

Using elemental materials such as iron, copper, quartz crystal and even gallium, Boots produces works that combine technical skill with a refined formal sensibility.
Boots references his Greek heritage frequently, and his embrace of foundational themes of Greek thought such as Geometry, Beauty and Mythology permeate the work.
Greek philosophy’s quest was to distill all things to their essence, their most elemental. Whether in Euclid’s elements of geometry or Democritus’ first concept of the atom, Greek thought explored the possibilities of nature’s abstracted and universal essence.

That a fascination with paring down nature to its essence coexisted in a culture that simultaneously embraced the elaborate dramas and narratives of mythology is not lost on Boots. Just as a fascination with nature’s elemental forms persist from ancient times to now, so does a celebration of the human theatricality that surrounds them.
THE NEW is a gallery project by Stefan Lawrence focusing primarily on limited edition design and is co-curated by Daniele Albright.
The space is directly adjacent to Twentieth.
