Form and Fantasy B arcelona artist Santi Moix garnered international acclaim in 2013 for his mural for the Rem Koolhaas- designed Prada store in SoHo. Since then, he's been awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation scholarship and held exhibitions in Europe and New York. Moix is again generating buzz for his lush new designs for Spanish rug company Nanimarquina, which is known for experimenting with new materials, techniques, and shapes. The Flora collection comprises P ortuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos was born in 1971, the same year Hans Hopfer designed his iconic Mah Jong sofa. But the artist didn't learn about Hopfer's work until 2019, while on the hunt for a lamp at Roche Bobois' Lisbon showroom; a few months later, the French furniture maker and Vasconcelos were collaborating. Their resulting BomBom collection reinterprets six designs, including the Mah Jong sofa, as well as rugs and cushions. Vasconcelos puts her bold stamp on the sofa and rugs with tart colors outlined by black stripes, reminiscent of her wall sculptures, and exuberant cushions in her own fantastical designs.
