The Paris-based designer’s eponymous bathroom line for Italian luxury brand Bisazza includes a bathtub, mirror and wash basin available in three colors: strawberry, pistachio, and blueberry. “It’s a contemporary interpretation of our childhood bathroom memories,” said the self-identifying chromatic “polyglot” in an email, adding that she deploys color specifically to elicit joy. “They’re like human-scale toys for a sensitive and sensorial experience,” Ms. Mahdavi said of the fixtures, “a purification through color.” The Mahdavi Collection, from about $563 for wash basin, bisazza.it.
Music to Your Eyes
Revered by music nerds as a pioneer of ambient music, a genre more meditative than melodic, Brian Eno has designed a similarly atmospheric new collection of wallpaper with the British company Graham & Brown. After approaching Mr. Eno, Graham & Brown introduced the artist, musician and music producer to its 40,000-piece design archive, which he used as a jumping-off point for his creations. Said Paula Taylor, the company’s lead design stylist, “He took those original repeat files and actually began mixing them together and blending them digitally, as one would blend oils or pastiche papers over one another.” The result: “The Mask Series,” consisting of “Flower Mask Jade” (shown) and the slightly less dense “Flower Mask Blue.” Said Ms. Taylor, “Wallpaper is effectively ‘ambient’ art.” Brian Eno Flower Mask Jade Wallpaper, $120 per roll, grahambrown.com
