Home' Scoop Homes and Art : Insite 25 Winter 2010 Contents ARTISAN WOOD
Talented design duo James Klein and David
Reid are known for their range of elegant
handmade porcelain under the KleinReid
banner. Produced out of a New York atelier
since their collaboration began in 1993, their
delicate, slightly retro pieces echo the forms of
nature while o ering playful perspectives on
traditional ideas, such as a vase shaped like a
bouquet (pictured) and a Campfire series --
still-life porcelain sculptures of twigs and branches
that can be placed in an unused fireplace or
used to hold incense. Perfect for nature-
deprived city dwellers. Visit kleinreid.com.
AC DC MEETS CAMUS
Hip young New York designer Kenzo Minami's
work is a mash-up of graphics, fashion and pop
culture that has taste-makers taking notice.
Among his collaborations have been a toy for
cult company KidRobot, later acquired by the
Museum of Modern Art. His highly collectable
work draws on influences from heavy metal
to the work of French-Algerian writer Albert
Camus. Visit kenzominami.com.
