From design bowties to bathroom concepts – Design Isle 2014!

Stylish bath for two, personalized design lamps, original headboards, crocheted puff seats, fine designer tableware and accessories – Riga International Design Fair "Design Isle", 2–5 October at Kipsala International Exhibition Centre, will present these and many other design works.

“Baltic designers for the second year in a row will present their original, high-quality and functional design works. Be it a small design lamp or a huge bed, each thing you see there is special, designed to the smallest detail investing a lot of work and love. And you are welcome to see it all,” the project manager Oskars Zaļkalniņš told.

Latvian designers offer imaginative solutions
The fact that Latvian designers can surprise is no longer a secret and they are looking for more and more new, non-standard solutions. If a bathtub placed in one of bathroom’s corners is quite a common thing, the Balteco company is going to present a freestanding stone bathtub. CasaDiVanna, in turn, will offer a modern and multi-functional bathtub Tivoli for two.

BAUDI, a new design brand, will present a bed with an original headboard made from different materials in different shapes to make it the central element of any bedroom. Bed is a place where you spend one third of your lifetime, so let’s sleep in comfort and beauty!

If purchasing a new design object, you pay a special attention to its uniqueness then a personalized design lamp from UNIQCUBE is exactly what you are looking for. Lamp designs can include different patterns and colours, favourite photographs or your own drawings – let’s give flight to imagination!

The MAG Handmade company will show how a touch of a talented restorer can give new life to old, inherited through generations and favourite furniture pieces and find their proper place in a modern interior. If glass is your favourite material, you should definitely visit AM Studio’s booth as customised glass furniture, lamps, mirrors, doors and stained glass windows are their specialty.

Lithuanian and Estonian designers to present urban chic
Our neighbours – Lithuanian and Estonian designers – will bring to Riga sophisticated and unique design clothing and decors for home and office.

The SmartArt company will showcase crocheted puff seats in different colours for various occasions; LI`AUSIAI will present rag dolls as an interior object or just a reason to smile.

Fashion junkies will certainly enjoy fine bracelets made from a variety of decorative elements from GG Boutique and stylish bowties, scarves and T-shirts for modern urban people from Soulaccess.
Not only food but also tableware is important; therefore, Lithuanian designer Simona Kaunaite has designed unusually shaped cups and plates to conveniently place your cutlery during a mealtime. It is really worth of seeing and buying!

The Vecta Design company will present wall and ceiling decors in different colours and with different printed patterns to add new colours, textures and feel to every interior. Find out more: www.designisle.lv

Design Award 2014 Competition
“Design Isle” is unthinkable without the annual and prestigious design competition "Design Award 2014" that will present works of both acclaimed designers and young talents, for instance, a rocking chair inspired by a hockey skate blade, a chest-of-drawers with 3D-printed handles, a heavy cutlery set designed to enjoy your meal slower, tweed wooden bowties and cufflinks, a collection of lamps developed studying the forms and shapes of precious stones and other unique works.

“Design Isle 2014” is occurring simultaneously with the international furniture, interior design and lighting fair "Baltic Furniture 2014" that presents a vast assortment of furniture for living rooms, bedrooms, nurseries, cabinets, kitchens and offices from more than 100 Latvian, Lithuanian, Estonian and Romanian furniture manufacturers. New this year – original lighting solutions for living and work space. More information: www.balticfurniture.lv
