Move over Dutch design, Americans are pulling up fast in the ever extrapolate practice of material experimentation. Manhattan-based Samuel Amoia unofficially opened NYCxDesign (New York Design Week) with a new series employing the iridescent potential of semi-precious stones cleverly interplayed with light geometric open-structures. Presented at Upper East Side DeLorenzo gallery, the new select collection of consoles, coffee tables and drums juxtaposes clean-lined surfaces with stone-coated base frames. Amoia uses the luminous qualities of malachite, lapis lazuli, pyrite, black tourmaline and red jasper – sourced in Brazil, Congo, India, Mexico. A sharp contrast to the heavy masculinity of his now celebrated Drums series, this new offering explores feminine forms rendered as light-weight jewels.

Breathing Heart is an installation by German multimedia artist Johanna Keimeyer that asks visitors to look inside themselves, literally. An inflated structure is matched by the sensorial qualities of light, sound, scent, and rhythm for full scenographic effect. First mounted during Art Basel, the project – captured in film – travels to New York this month.
