New Editions: Take a Gander at Modernica’s Latest and Greatest Product Releases


The Equinox Floor Lamp

Featuring three long steel legs to form a base and a George Nelson Saucer Lamp on top, the Equinox is simplicity defined. This striking piece is totally unique and will make a statement, no matter where you decide to place it.

As with all George Nelson Bubble Lamps®, the product is constructed for durability. The stand is made out of brushed, nickel-plated steel and each lamp is constructed using the same vinyl-coating process that was invented by George Nelson in 1947.

Inspire Me Monday: Casa B+B by Studio mk27

Studio mk27 out of São Paulo, Brazil likes to re-imagine architectural norms in family homes. This house, for instance, contains all bedrooms and personal bathrooms on the ground floor, adjacent to the backyard and outdoor areas.

New Wine Studio by Kevin Oreck is Simply Luscious

Spin the Bottle Wine Studio If you’re the type to “try before you buy,” you’ll adore this new wine studio opening soon in Toluca Lake. Spin the Bottle will allow patrons to sample wines before they purchase – the same idea as a tasting room, with a much larger selection. But that’s not the only thing we love about Spin the Bottle – designed by local architect Kevin Oreck, the space itself is simply luscious.

Design by Kevin Oreck architect

We’ve been long-time fans of Oreck’s work, whose style adapts seamlessly from traditional to modern aesthetics. We’re glad he went with modern on the Spin the Bottle decor, since the cozy sophistication of the place makes the perfect setting for our Fiberglass Shell Chairs and George Nelson Bubble Lamps. Although the new wine studio has yet to open, we’re betting it’ll be an instant hit.
