In 2012 the Republic of II BY IV was founded; fueled by passion and dedicated to constant innovation II BY IV DESIGN’s product studio has evolved quickly from the seed of an idea to a fully realized company equal in ability and talent to our interiors studio.
Through collaboration with industry leading companies like ICF Group/Nienkämper, Metro Wallcoverings and Elte the Republic of II BY IV has developed a portfolio of award winning product lines that include furniture, lighting, wallcoverings, carpets and accessories. This month we are extremely proud to announce the launch of two new architectural fixtures, the ZED and HED lights, developed in partnership with Delviro Energy, as well as, celebrate the success of our Tear Drop table, a finalist in Interior Design’s Best of Year Awards. Finally we take a look at a few inspirational images from Paris and the recent Maison & Object fair where the emphasis was on materiality and objects with ambiance.
Function meets form in the new architectural lighting fixtures designed by II BY IV DESIGN for Delivro Energy. With an elegantly slim profile, modular connectivity and state-of-the-art LED technology the ZED and HED suspension lights look amazing on their own or composed in a group. Equally suited to modern public amenity spaces or industrial environments these sculptural fixtures are extremely adaptable.
BEST OF YEAR
Interior Design’s annual Best of Year (BoY) awards recognizes the world’s most outstanding projects and products. With over 2,300 submissions this year alone we are thrilled to announce that II BY IV DESIGN’s Tear Drop Table was recognized as an Honoree in the Residential/Occasional Tables category. Notably, this sleek, height adjustable piece is our second collaboration with ICF Group/Nienkämper.
An impressive collection of innovation and talent, Maison & Object has been described as one of the top three European events for Interior Design. Held bi-annually, the II BY IV DESIGN team made some interesting observations between the September 2017 and January 2018 shows; the earlier fair featured precious objects and curiosities within a curated living space while the most recent was a much more stylized affair, focused on furniture within the realm of design…essentially product designer eye-candy!
