Ochre, a London-based design group, is opening a SoHo retail store, its first American location. The New York Times has a nice slideshow featuring "distinctive modernist accessories and furniture constructed of offbeat natural materials". Designer Andrew Corrie explains, "We're not about stark minimalism. We're part of a trend away from that hard-edged commercial aesthetic. We're warmer and softer, with organic forms and earthy colors." This lamp combines a simplicity of line with a sinuous shape. Love it!
