You already know why we love the Architectural Digest Home Design Show, held at Pier 94 in New York City 22 – 25 March. If you don’t you need to read this. Another reason we love the show is that a number of our good friends who showcase their work on Modenus are exhibiting and we think it is only right to point you in their direction. This is part one – more to come.
Victoria +Albert Baths
Only the absence of hot water and a glass of Chablis will dissuade us from being found in one of these beautiful, elegant tubs. The ultimate statement in quality and style, the Victoria + Albert collection is packed with inspirational designs, all made from 100% Englishcast, a blend of volcanic limestone and high performance resins. Naturally white, each Victoria + Albert tub is individually hand-finished by craftsmen. Naturally charming, each Victoria + Albert is an absolute delight and well worth seeking out at the show. Maybe I should bring my rubber duck?
These are seriously cool people with a great product line. Jenn-Air appliances are known for their precision craftsmanship and distinctive styling. We know their people for being friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly generous with their time. Last year the Modenus team had to pry one of their colleagues away from a Jenn-Air range he was stroking gently. All the time the patient people from Jenn-Air answered his endless questions however obscure. A great resource for professional designers and design enthusiasts alike.
Nico Yektai is a sculptor who designs and makes one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. So it should come as no surprise that each piece is an original work of art, signed by the artist. Nico’s style has evolved as a direct result of traditional woodworking techniques and his deep respect for functional furniture. That said Nico is no respecter of expectations, rather he seeks to turn them on their heads. His work is bold and unique. While many of Nico’s pieces are ready to ship for your projects he welcomes commissions and will make delightful scale models as part of a presentation of the proposed piece. And the really good news is that if you get yourself down to The Architectural Digest Home Design Show not only will you get a chance to see Nico’s work, you will also meet Nico himself.
