S ince its founding by Lulu Lytle 25 years ago, Soane Britain has embodied the best in British craftsmanship. This fall, the brand adds The Rattan Kymo cabinet, an original undulating rattan design loosely inspired by the curvaceous folds of a satinwood Art Deco cabinet in Lytle's home ("kymo" is Greek for wave). Woven in Soane's Leicestershire workshop, The Rattan Hurlingham dining chair has a fabulous rectilinear cane frame with diamond lattice insets and rattan-wrapped joints, with loose cushions available in Soane fabrics or the customer's own material. In honor of its quarter-century anniversary, Soane has debuted a new North American flagship showroom on Madison Avenue and East 65th Street in New York City. In keeping with the London flagship, the New York studio embraces a highly decorated and styled mix of Soane's designs and antiques. Soane Britain, to the trade by appointment, 22 E. 65th St., 4th Floor, New York, Anne Lee Phillips Soane's The Rattan Kymo Cabinet in natural rattan Dream Weavers N emo Lighting, an Italian lighting d e s i g n firm founded in Milan in 1993, famously c r e a t e s c e r t i f i e d reproductions of lights designed by iconic 20th-century masters such as Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand. Le Corbusier is widely considered the master of the Modern architectural movement; his designs were made of up of lines and geometric color blocks, and in his view, painting, sculpture, and architecture were intertwined disciplines. La Roche was the first wall lamp designed by Le Corbusier, originally created to enlighten the large windows of Villa La Roche, a manifesto of purist architecture. The Nemo Lighting edition enhances its lightness and functionality via a matte metal frame with opal glass diffuser for soft lighting. Le Corbusier designed the Projecteur for the Chandigarh High Court of India in 1954. The painted aluminum body comes in three Purist Light colors and is available in floor, wall/ceiling, and pendant versions. Charlotte Perriand was a French architect, designer, and global traveler. In the early 20th century, she reimagined design and its aesthetic values based on the concept that functional, better designed living spaces would result in a better society. The functionality of a sailboat boom inspired her to create Potence Pivotante, a purist wall sconce made of two black tubular sections in an L-shape that swivels, which Nemo Lighting offers in aluminum and matte-black-painted metal, and in red and gray finishes.
