We at Decoist love a new collection, especially when innovative materials meet interesting forms! Today we showcase 3 of our favorites, from sculptural lighting to vases that seem to melt into their support structures. Let’;s not forget the beauty of sleek modern coffee tables! Keep reading for a look at the magic that happens when creativity meets thoughtful design…
Duotone from Yield
Let’;s start with the furnishings! We’;re smitten with Yield‘s Duotone tables, which blend the clarity of glass with elements such as leather, brass and mirror. Hardy construction meets crystal clear design. Not to mention, snap-in hardware and hidden set screws make assembly a piece of cake:
Below we see the Duotone Circular Coffee Table 35″, which features a solid brass base, a rose mirror bottom tier, and a rose glass top tier:
The smoked glass version of the piece features smoky glass on both tiers, plus a black base to add an element of dark contrast. Less reflective than the rosy coffee table above, this understated selection is perfect for sleek spaces:
The lightest of the bunch, this birch, brass and glass piece showcases a “mixed materials” look, thanks to the interplay of wood, metal and glass:
Yield has also designed a Duotone coffee table with a rectangular form and plenty of customization possibilities. Whether you select a brass base or an aluminum powder coated one, rest assured you’;ll also have your pick of glass options, as well as tan or black leather for the base. It’;s the Duotone Rectangular Coffee Table, designed by Rachel Gant and Andrew Deming.

Sculptural Lighting from Ladies & Gentlemen Studio
Once again, Ladies & Gentlemen Studio has wowed us with their unique blend of sculptural style and first-rate materials. Today we focus on the studio’;s new lighting offerings, beginning with Kazimir. This geometric chandelier was inspired by the late-1800s Russian artist Kazimir Malevich and his abstract, layered paintings. Textured, dichroic glass meets a triangular frame to create a geometric lighting statement, and you can choose from a matte nickel or matte brass finish. Pictured below in chandelier form, the piece is also available as a sconce. [photos by Kaarem]
Next up: Equalizer, a lighting fixture inspired by a room divider. Available as a 2-piece or a 4-piece pendant, the fixture can also be ordered as a 5-piece radial or 5-piece linear pendant. Hand-blown glass created by John Hogan is the standout feature of Equalizer, and you can choose from monochromatic or satin-colored glass, as well as a special edition finish featuring sand-blasted, oiled and treated glass that will change color depending on lighting conditions and viewpoint.
We end our L&G Studio section with the Krane lamp, the result of a collaboration with Norwegian design studio Vera & Kyte. Created to challenge the usual lighting archetypes, the lamp features an arch pulley, glass shade and floor weight, which allow design lovers to adjust it as needed:
Indefinite Vases from Studio E.O
We end today’;s post by showcasing the stunning craftsmanship of Studio E.O’;s Indefinite Vases project. Call them decorative sculptures. Call them functional containers. Use them as you will, but don’;t forget to admire the way cut stone and hand-blown glass combine to create the illusion of melting matter. Fragile meets solid in a true feast for the eyes.

In addition to hand-blown glass, the materials of choice for this innovative project include Portoro Marble, Rosa Norvegia Marble, Amarillo Macael Marble, Pink Onyx, and Azul Bahia Granite.
We hope today’;s post has inspired you to get creative in your own projects and endeavors! The works featured above celebrate modern design at its finest.
