Nanimarquina Sale: Select Rugs 20% Off
By Scott Reilly
7/7/2017 2:57:00 PM  

 

Nanimarquina and Switch Modern are having a summer 20% off sale thru July 31 on select rug styles that are in the process of being discontinued including Antique in all colorways and sizes, Eduardo Chillida’s Manos 1995, Losanges III designed by Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec, and Rabari 3 and Rabari 4 designed by Nipa Doshi + Jonathan Levien. The price noted for each style and size represents a 20% discount while quantities last. As always, free shipping applies to all Nanimarquina rug purchases. Similarly, if you are located outside of Georgia, there is no sales tax. Need to see a physical example in person? Switch Modern is happy to arrange for a sample of any of Nanimarquina rug to be sent to you.

 

Two aspects of the Antique rug collection really stand out… its vintage look coupled with the innovative artisan technique that was especially created to enable the production of this rug.  As its name suggests, the design was inspired by antique rugs – its neutral colors and floral patterns will add warmth to any room. The hand-knotted sumac weaving technique used in this collection is the result of countless hours of work underscored by the imagination of its Indian weavers. Knot by knot, a thin braid is created that provides each rug’s distressed look. Composed of 100% hand-woven New Zealand wool. Antique is available in three colorways – Antique 1, Antique 2, and Antique 3 – each version is available in two sizes.

 

With their Losanges collection, the Bouroullec brothers continue their study of simplicity and elegance, reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug by using ancient kilim techniques. Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill due to its sophisticated combination of colors within its atypical geometrical rhombic form. In addition to the plethora of handcraft techniques involved, the Afghan wool used in Losanges is also spun by hand in order to achieve the sophisticated color hues that ultimately make each rhombus different and each rug unique.

 

Celebrating 20th century artist Eduardo Chillida’s ouevre, Nanimarquina has created a rug collection based upon a chronological selection of his artist’s work – Figura Humana (1948), Dibujo Tinta (1957), and Collage (1966) – pieces that reflect the gestation process of his renowned sculpture, Peine del Viento, located in San Sebastián. The collection also includes two depictions of his much celebrated depictions of hands – Mano and Manos from the 1990s, as well as Gravitación from 1993 and 1994. Noted here is Manos 1995. This hand-knotted rug is composed of 100% hand-spun New Zealand wool.

 

Left photo: Rabari 4 rug with inset detail. Right photo: Rabari 3 rug with inset detail. Rabari is an outstanding design – indeed, each becomes a canvas on which Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien have designed a refined combination of rhythms with a unique graphic sensuality. According to Levien, “We decided to create a series of rugs that evoke the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India. We wanted our collection for nanimarquina to reference the unfinished embroideries like studies of different techniques in progress, as they gradually emerge over time. The spontaneous compositions of the rugs embody the serendipity and freedom to improvise inherent in each step of a handmade piece. Joyful, irreverent and unique.” Each Rabari rug is composed of hand-knotted, hand-woven 100% New Zealand wool.

For more information about any of the aforementioned Nanimarquina sale rugs or to request a physical sample of any Nanimarquina rug, please contact us at 404-605-0196 or info@switchmodern.com

Alessi Forma Cheese Grater
By Scott Reilly
5/22/2017 7:49:00 AM  

 

Left photo: The Forma cheese grater designed by Zaha Hadid for Alessi’s 2017 Spring/Summer Collection. Right photo: Detail of each side of the removable polished stainless steel grater. The cradle and grater become a fabulously enigmatic sculpture for any surface.

Referred to as the “queen of the curve,” Zaha Hadid’s architectural designs were infused with an eye-popping expressiveness the likes of which had no historic aesthetic precedent. Known for her statement sculptural buildings around the world, she had collaborated with a few manufacturing firms to create home furnishings objects – Sawaya & Moroni, B&B Italia, Established & Sons, Alessi – her projects with the latter produced several objects yet left two projects in development with her unexpected passing last year. According to Alberto Alessi, “the first is this cheese grater, which is so beautifully ‘Hadidian’ as to not require comment.” We absolutely agree! It’s like a small piece of architecture for the table. Hadid’s Forma cheese grater was inspired by the natural formation of pebbles eroded by the water and sand. It features a polished stainless grater that rests within a base cradle composed of matte black melamine. Its asymmetrical arrangement of holes is not only visually engaging, it allows the cheese to be grated and sprinkled unevenly providing an atypical texture to any dish.

 

Left photo: The Forma cheese grater cradles a chunk of parmesan cheese; simply remove the stainless portion to grate cheese and sprinkle cheese directly over a dish. Right photo: Portrait of Zaha Hadid (credit: Alessi)

The Forma cheese grater is one of several new exciting designs that are part of Alessi’s 2017 Spring/Summer Collection. Switch Modern has recently created a new section of our website that now highlights Alessi’s seasonal collections. We have already received several of these 2017 designs and are still awaiting others. And, remember… all of these new pieces are included in our 20% off Alessi Sale – a great opportunity to reserve yours now and lock into the special sale price.

Alessi Sale: 20% Off Thru 5/29 + Free Shipping + Gift
By Robyn
5/18/2017 1:12:00 PM  

 

The exterior of Switch Modern’s Alessi Store in Atlanta. Thru 5/29 all Alessi designs are discounted 20% - both in store and at switchmodern.com – all orders receive complimentary shipping; orders over $100 also receive a free gift.

Alessi and Switch Modern are having a Memorial Day promotional sale – everything Alessi on our website and in our Atlanta Alessi Store is 20% off from 5/19 thru 5/29*. And, speaking about our Alessi Store, we thought that we would share some photos of this beautiful space. Alessi @ Switch Modern is how Alessi refers to its retail partners that have committed to an Alessi-branded space that includes proprietary fixtures, signage, as well as a separate entrance. While Switch Modern has been selling Alessi since 2009 and shortly thereafter became an Alessi Shop-In-Shop, a recent move to our new 25,000 square foot space in Atlanta’s trendy West Midtown Design District prompted a substantial commitment to presenting this venerable Italian brand. Owners Roy Otwell and Doug Henderson collaborated with Alessi’s North American Director, Paolo Cravedi, to develop this Alessi-branded store for Atlanta. Cravedi remarked that "Alessi has six branded stores in the United States… three Alessi flagships locations in New York and San Francisco; three Alessi stores in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and San Juan. Alessi @ Switch Modern is the only one in the Southeast."

 

Left photo: The Alessi store at Switch Modern (Alessi @ Switch Modern) features floating illumination, polished concrete floors, and proprietary Alessi-branded fixtures designed by Stefano Giovannoni. The vertical fixtures are organized around a central plateau with risers that provide flexible elevations for the objects. Right photo: A recessed modular display similarly provides transparent display surfaces that create visual levity for the various designs.

 

Left photo: David Peterson, Alessi Store Manager (left) and Paolo Cravedi, Director, Alessi North America (right) during Mr. Cravedi’s recent visit to Atlanta. Right photo: Illuminated Alessi logo signs and a recessed corner fixture designed by Stefano Giovannoni. The space planning and lay out of fixtures for the Alessi store was engineered by Alessi at the manufacturer’s headquarters north of Milan.

The resulting space features hundreds of Alessi designs displayed on or within fixtures that were specifically designed by Stefano Giovannoni. Switch Modern not only displays Alessi in its physical space, but shows the entire line on its website. Many Alessi pieces are in stock and ready to ship (Switch Modern has thousands of Alessi pieces in our stockroom). Whether it’s a popular tea kettle design by Michael Graves or Richard Sapper or a flatware service for 12 by Achille Castiglioni or Jasper Morrison, Switch Modern probably has it in stock. If we don’t … it’s typically just 10 – 14 business days away as Switch Modern gets priority inventory fulfillment from Italy. And, as new pieces become available through Alessi’s seasonal collections, orders from Switch Modern are similarly given priority. Looking for a hard-to-find piece, we often archive important Alessi collector’s pieces when they are discontinued and no longer in production.

 

Left photo: Additional Alessi-branded fixtures designed by Stefano Giovannoni. Right photo: A detail of the identification labels and signage provided by Alessi that includes information about a designer or a particular range of objects.

 

With all orders over $100 placed thru 5/29, you will receive a free reusable plasticized Alessi tote bag with a design by Marcel Wanders. The tote’s panels are stitched together as are its integrated black handles. Each large panel of the tote has an engaging image of a snail wearing pearls (left image); each side panel sports a black and white graphic (right image). The tote bag measures 15” width x 8” depth x 13” height when fully opened. This will be included (folded) within your order’s parcel.

Switch Modern’s Alessi selections are so extensive we’ve actually divided the brand into several categories online – Alessi, Alessi 2017 Spring/Summer, Coffee and Tea, Dinnerware, Flatware, Glassware, and Holiday. Thru 5/29, all prices have been adjusted on the website to reflect the 20% discount. All orders outside of Georgia ship tax free; shipping is complimentary on all orders. In addition to free shipping, orders over $100 also receive a free Marcel Wanders design reusable tote bag. Looking for something specific? Want to check current stock? Feel free to give us a call at 404-605-0196 or e-mail us at alessi@switchmodern.com

Stelton Cylinda Line: 50 Years
By Scott Reilly
5/12/2017 12:37:00 PM  

 

Stelton Cylinda Line designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1967 – presented here as “skyline” of cylindrical forms where function is expressed through the varying diameters and heights of pieces.

Stelton’s Cylinda Line remains as contemporary and visually stunning today as it was a half century ago. Designed by Arne Jacobsen, Cylinda Line is still an extensive range of engaging stainless steel tabletop, bar, and serving pieces – the range gets its name from the designer’s overarching use of the cylindrical form expressed in various diameters and heights based upon the object’s intended function. As the story goes, Stelton’s managing director in the 1960s was Peter Holmblad who happened to be Arne Jacobsen’s stepson. Holmblad was interested in creating a cylindrical range of stainless steel and challenged his stepdad to participate in the design process. From 1964 through 1967, Jacobsen and Holmblad overcame several obstacles in producing the range’s distinctive cylindrical form. New techniques were specifically developed to roll the sheet stainless steel around a cylindrical form where it was welded. As Jacobsen insisted that any resulting seam had to be invisible, new equipment was again developed specifically to polish away any weld marks.

 


Original Stelton Cylinda Line packaging from the late 1960s and early 1970s was even in the shape of cylinders and featured fabulous graphics that employed the circle.

In 1967, Stelton launched its initial collection of fifteen Cylinda Line pieces that included barware, table serving pieces, as well as a coffee and tea service. It garnered the prestigious Danish Design Award the same year. Throughout the late 1960s, new pieces were added to the initial core range and it quickly became a global sensation. Over the ensuing five decades, examples of Stelton’s Cylinda Line have found their way into the permanent collections of countless museums worldwide including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and London’s Victoria & Albert Museum.

In addition to Arne Jacobsen’s Cylinda Line pieces, Switch Modern also shows and stocks many other Stelton classics by Erik Magnussen and Peter Holmblad from the 1970s as well as contemporary designs by Holmbäck Nordentoft, Christina Halskov, and Klaus Rath. As part of celebrating Cylinda Line’s 50th anniversary, we invite you to enjoy a 10% discount on any Stelton purchase through June 15. Simply use discount code CYLINDA50 when checking out.

Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair + Free Matching Egg Stool
By Elaine
4/21/2017 3:03:00 PM  

 

 


Arne Jacobsen’s Egg chair for Fritz Hansen is an icon of 20th century design.  Designed in the late 1950s specifically for use in the architect’s Royal SAS Hotel project in Copenhagen, its engaging and precise balance of curves was actually achieved by hand in the late 1950s – needless to say, a time period that didn’t afford computer-assisted technologies that now enable today’s complex forms.  The Egg chair also involved emerging technologies like cold-molded foam and the application of a textile onto a curved form to achieve its new aesthetics.  While the Egg chair is often seen in living rooms and lobbies, Jacobsen also designed an ottoman to accompany the chair that can also be used independently.  Not only does the gently “scooped” silhouette of the Egg stool create wonderful visual synergy when used with the chair, it actually enhances the comfort of the Egg by allowing the user to relax with their feet up.  When not being used with the Egg chair, the Egg ottoman becomes a great occasional stool that is easily moved around or becomes an impromptu resting place for a stack of magazines.

Through August 31, Fritz Hansen and Switch Modern are providing a complimentary Egg stool with the purchase of an Egg chair.  The complimentary Egg ottoman will be fabricated in the same textile or leather as the Egg chair.  An amazing deal as the stool alone retails from $2,306 - $3,644 depending upon the textile or leather selected. Please contact us at 404-605-0196 or info@switchmodern.com for additional details about this special promotional opportunity as well as to review the numerous available textile and leather upholstery options.
