The most hospitable designs from BDNY 2019

From November 10 to 12, Boutique Design Trade Fair (BDNY) hosted a lineup of hospitality-driven designers and manufacturers at Manhattan's Javits Center. From kitchen and bath manufacturers to textiles and furniture designers, more than 700 exhibitors showcased the newest hospitality design solutions for designers and architects alike. Be they for a hotel, restaurant, spa, or anything else, the products below will inspire. Plenea Foscarini Plenea provides both up and down lighting simultaneously. A rib-like panel illuminates the Pringle-shaped body, which, in turn, casts a soft, enveloping light in both directions. Rain and Cloudy ALPI Danish Studio GamFratesi collaborated with Italian wooden material purveyor ALPI on a collection of prefabricated wooden surfaces featuring a motif that resembles rain and clouds in a pixelated style. Aptly named, Rain and Cloudy are perfect for low traffic areas like residential projects, as well as high traffic areas like hotels. WEDGE Basin x Dyson Airblade Wash+Dry/Hand Dryer Neo-Metro Neo-Metro’s Wedge Basin ships prefabricated, making it easy to install in a jiffy. Outfitted with Dyson’s Airblade Wash+Dry hand dryer, it makes any public bathroom more environmentally sustainable and efficient by placing both washing and drying in the same location. Lura Collection Clodagh for Speakman Industrial plumbing purveyor Speakman collaborated with New York City–based multi-disciplinary design studio, Clodagh, on a collection of ergonomic fittings. With children, elderly, and those with handicaps in mind, the design features pulls, knobs, and mechanics that are easily used by just about anyone. Featuring sinuous curves, the collection includes shower valves, faucets, and levers available in a satin gold or silver finish. Smart Lighting x ARTIK Legrand x Samsung Just ask, and the lights will be dimmed. Pairing Samsung’s smart building platform with Legrand’s smart dimmers and switches allows any IoT-connected device to control lighting. Installed in place of existing electric plates, the system seamlessly connects to other smart home systems via wifi. Counterpoint Sonneman Aptly named, Counterpoint is a mobile-like fixture with arms of light that seemingly rotate. The arms on the ceiling-mounted fixture are adjustable and output 1070 lumens of LED wattage. Forum Shaw Contract Like a cubist painting, this collection of contract carpet tiles is designed to initiate conversation and meeting. The overlapping lines meet to form engaging geometric shapes that add dimension and character to gathering spaces. Ada Family Brendan Ravenhill Studio When L.A.-based designer Brendan Ravenhill learned that the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) specifies that fixtures can only protrude just four inches from the wall (when hung in hallways), he based this collection of lights on the concept of constraint. The wall-washing light features adjustable pivoting shades, or bi-lateral louvers, if you will, that allow light to be cast at any desired angle.

Six quick picks from BDNY 2017

The Boutique Design Trade Fair (BNDY) is the hospitality show, bringing together the industry's interior designers, architects, developers, and experts to see the latest furnishings, lighting, fabrics, wall coverings, flooring, carpeting, bath and spa, and accessories.   We spent one day going to and fro between 600 booths and presentations. Check out a few of our favorites below. Hayon x Nani collection Jaime Hayón for Nanimarquina Spanish designer Jaime Hayón designed a collection of rugs based on hand-drawn sketches for Nanimarquina’s 30th Anniversary. The Paul Klee–like rugs feature curious motifs and figures, including animal heads, abstract shapes, and fluid line work. Grid Collection Warp & Weft for Yabu Pushelberg The first four rugs from a new collaboration between Yabu Pushelberg and Warp & Weft were revealed during BDNY (the remaining eight designs will be released throughout 2018). Inspired by the right angles and geometry of urban topography, principals George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg softened and simplified the visual narrative of rigid city streets by deconstructing grid-like patterns and transforming them into one-dimensional planes. Spanish industrial design masterminds Miguel Milá and his son Gonzalo Milà created a a sleek rattan outdoor seating collection, available in natural wood and black. Olivio Armchair iSiMAR This expressive armchair is fashioned from polyester powder-coated galvanized steel, and is offered in 24 colors and 5 metal finishes. Cestita Batería Santa & Cole A new wireless adaption of a light fixture originally designed in 1962 by  Spanish designer Miguel Milá is now available as a small rechargeable, portable table lamp. Cestita is encased in a bent wooden structure with a top handle that envelops an opal-shaped orb. Koord El Torrent Designed as a part of the portable division of the collection, these battery-powered luminaires filter light through a woven rope shade creating a venetian blind lighting effect; available in four sizes, a variety of colors, and suitable for outdoor or indoor use.
