At the Salone del Mobile in Milan this week, Daniel Libeskind unveiled six new objects as a part of his recent foray into the world of product design. Created for top design firms, the new products include the PARAGON lamp for Artimide, the FLOW spa for Jacuzzi, the WING mirror collection for Fiam, the IDEA door collection for Tre P-Tre Più, the NINA door handle for Olivari, and the NEW YORK ROOFTOP serving ware collection for Alessi. The six pieces were created by Milan-based Libeskind Design, an offshoot of Studio Daniel Libeskind that opened in 2012 to meet the growing demand for objects that reflect the architect's style. The studio has developed products for companies around the world including Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and the US.
Keeping with Libeskind's idiosyncratic affinity for all things sleek, sharp, and distinctly contemporary, the monochromatic products turn everyday objects into stylish works of design. Each piece is said to reflect his ongoing exploration of how commonplace objects tell stories about their environments and the people who use them. According to Libeskind, "Just as, as an architect, I’m mindful of all the end users of my buildings, so, too, as a designer, I try to be aware of the wide variety of people who would put one of my design objects in their homes." With these trendy new products, you can take a little slice of Libeskind home.
