West Elm just announced its second collaboration with New York City-based design studio, Bower, featuring seven designs showcasing their minimalist, design-led aesthetic. The success of the first collection in 2017 led the way for the latest West Elm x Bower collaboration, which includes a console table, side table, sconces, pendant, candleholder, vase and bowl, at accessible prices starting at $70. Inspired by plant life, the Bower team used sphere and disc shapes, along with mixed materials to create the dynamic collection. The pieces are designed to work together or to be used separately in a variety of interiors.
Danny Giannella, Tammer Hijazi and Jeffrey Renz are the trio behind Bower, a contemporary furniture and product design studio. With a focus on mirrors, they explore perceptions of depth, light and self. Through a free–thinking, experimental process, Bower aims to bring unexpected objects and environments into people’s lives, with reflections taking center stage. They believe the mirror is the everyday object most closely related to our consciousness. Listen to their conversation with Clever host Amy Devers:
