product briefs Vondom: faz daybed Lacava: Light tub08 Reader Service No. 225 Reader Service No. 226 Mineral crystals inspired Ramón Esteve’s design of the faceted Faz line of outdoor furniture. Since its launch a few years ago, the collection has expanded to include seating, chaise lounges, benches, tables, lighting, and even planters. Its latest addition is the Daybed, which sports its own adjustable shade that opens like a clamshell. Taking cues from midcentury-modern design, the freestanding soaking tub Light Tub08 boasts a sleek, geometric form with curved corners and an angled back that provides ultimate comfort for the bather. It measures 67 inches long by 29 ½ deep by 21 ⅝ high, and its white solid surface comes in a gloss or matte finish. pollack: dottie and do si do shaw Hospitality Group: Vivid palette cYp bendheim: chic collection Reader Service No. 227 Reader Service No. 228 Reader Service No. 229 Part of the company’s new We Love Color collection, upholstery fabric Dottie features a visually intriguing pattern of dimensional matelassé dots that swell and shrink against a contrasting color ground of corded cotton. The nubby Do Si Do, woven of a bouclé yarn, comes in the same dot or background colors, making it the perfect coordinate. Shaw has partnered once again with Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) to build on its Vivid Palette collection, producing six new patterns using computer yarn placement (CYP) technology. The attractive, organic patterns take inspiration from fiber art by the SCAD students, as well as traditional hand-dyeing techniques, and are constructed from Eco Solution Q nylon. The latest trends in hospitality design inform the 14 patterns of the Chic Collection, but the contemporary designs—which range from striations to abstracted animal prints—are also suitable for walls, partitions, and stair railings in commercial and institutional settings. The styles offer different levels of transparency or opaqueness, and many sport metallic shimmer. 42 april 2013
