L&G debuted at Milan during Salone del Mobile this year with Still / Life, an exhibit presented by Calico Wallpaper in collaboration with Mud Australia. A sensorial installation that offered guests a moment of introspection, interaction, and stillness, Still / Life featured site-specific gradients by Calico Wallpaper, interiors and lighting by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, and ceramics by Mud Australia. The spatial concept designed by studio founders Dylan Davis and Jean Lee, envisioned a space that embraced a dual state of tranquility and vitality, revealing a calming yet enriching environment that opened the senses to elemental possibilities: a momentary day dream, a fond memory, or a chance conversation. The installation incorporated elements of process and materiality from the exhibitors as a means to celebrate their collective creative energy. The lighting collection Myrna, which uses color, shape, and materiality to define intimate spaces through light was launched at this occasion.

L&G made its 1st Dibs debut as invitational contemporary exhibitors in the newly-opened Chelsea showroom. The showroom exhibit displayed the studio’s latest lighting collections in abstracted living vignettes, seeking to convey the studio’s playfully austere vision of space where in lighting plays a critical role in defining an environment’s function and spirit.
It seems like only yesterday since we went to Milan for Salone Del Mobile 2015 when we launched our SHAPE UP lights and was invited to be part of Wallpaper*Handmade.

Dylan & I will be part of next weekend's Remodelista Market at Dwell on Design in LA, June 22-24th. Along with our other JOIN friends (Blk Pine Workshop, Grain, Fleet Objects, fruitsuper, Iacoli & McAllister, R&L goods), we'll all be selling our goods there!
We will be bringing an array of goods such as our classic chalk piggy bank, homestead candlesticks, Salt & Pepper Pawz, our new Aura lights, and some brand new Perimeter Tray color comobos...like this one!
We love how fresh and bold it looks & feels!
We're also excited to be showing some Bloc necklaces! We're especially excited about these photos for our Bloc necklace lookbook (coming soon!)
So lots of exciting things will be happening around Dwell on Dwell! We're totally stoked! So if you happened to be in LA, come say hello and see our new work in person!!
Simple but ambitious....35-schools, 75-day, 7000-mile tour and exhibition showcasing design for social impact that takes place in an Airstream.
'The programming will bring the evidence of and tools for design for social impact to the doorsteps of students, with the ultimate goal of enabling and empowering the next generation of creative problem-solvers to apply their skills to the world’s most pressing problems and improve life on a global scale.'
But as I looked at their itinerary, I noticed that they purposely avoided the Northwest! Portland gets to be part more things these days than Seattle, so screw them. But Hello?! What about us!?
What's up San Francisco? I thought us west coast people are tight, that's the one thing we do have in common is the fact that we're physically on the same side, right? We gotta stick together! You guys are like the people who knows how to put on awesome parties, while Portland is like the laid back cousin who have all the great "hooks ups." I know...we're like the dorky brother who never gets invited to any cool events... and yeah, maybe sometimes we seem like we have a stick up our a** but that's only because we're a little socially inapt, but that doesn't mean we don't know how to party!
I know you think its ridiculous that we mix fleece vests with business outfits...but really, it's Seattle who started the whole woodsman-hunter-look of black & red plaid button shirt with Redwing shoes....not Portland! They just know how to wear it well! Just look at this 1966 Edie Bauer catalog!
They even got C.C. Filson's products!....Although I've yet seen anyone in Seattle carry a Filson bag...and no, it's not because we're too cheap to sport one, damn it!
See! Seattle was sporting this whole look more than 30 years ago! Perhaps that's our problem...we're just way too ahead of the game for anyone to understand us. We're like the awkward prodigy guy who's too shy to get a girl's number...or the sexy librarian lady who's too intimidating for most guys....or something like that.
Just you wait and see, soon enough, y'all will be sporting the fleece-Patagonia-vest-with-sports-sandals-look.....and of course with white socks!
