H&D Hotlist #075: New design products, furniture and home accessories
Versace jungle collection
Walk on the wild side
Versace’s iconic jungle print (now synonymous with Jennifer Lopez since she stepped onto the Grammy Awards red carpet in 2000 wearing a sheer Versace green gown featuring the printed design and a plunging neckline) which was reprised on its Spring 2020 runway, also made its way onto the fashion house’s home selection. The porcelain collection comprises a service plate, dinner plate, tray, vase, scented candle and ashtray, all of which bear a gold-tone border, Versace’s iconic Medusa accent and an intricate Baroque design.
The collection retails from $90 from a square dish to $500 for a plate, and is available at the Versace boutiques at #01- 08/09 Paragon and #B1-31 & #B2-29 The Shoppes At Marina Bay Sands.

The lovechild from a collaboration between hip Italian brand Qeeboo and modern artist Marcantonio, this four-metre tall behemoth lighting design literally brings the outdoors in, with its life-sized giraffe sculpture grabbing onto a Maria Therese-style chandelier.

London-based designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby’s iconic Shell birch plywood chair, originally designed in 2004 and produced in 30 limited edition pieces, has been reissued by furniture maker Isokon Plus. The pair’s interest in creating a structural form from folded sheet materials led to the chair’s lightweight, ergonomic design, which is characterised by moulded contours and the absence of mechanical fixings. It is available in the original natural birch ply and Teal Blue – the first in a series of new stained colours.
