RETAILOBSERVER.COM MAY 2018 38 14. CRATE & BARREL Modern. Graphic. Bold. For 55 years, the iconic black-and- white combo has been our calling card. Here, we add a fresh pop of color to the mix: a burst of gorgeous, inspiring green with just the right energy to spark fresh ideas, make the party buzz, and bring our look to life. 15. PERKINS + WILL Angled reflections create diversity from order, forming different viewpoints and shifting perspectives. Taking disparate parts and assembling a whole empowers everyone to find their place. 16 DWR Design by Matthew Goodrich and Kendall Lowe for Design Within Reach. Quality and integrity are constant, and remain so even when partially obscured. The distractions and obfuscations of the present moment are temporary, but the truth endures. Our design explores the surrealist theme of revelation though concealment. By concealing an iconic modern design, does it become unrecognizable or does it speak louder than it did before? 17. PARSONS The shadows represent the people that are HIV-positive or at a high risk who do not receive the help they need. The light emitting outwards is illustrative of the hope of a future without AIDS. It shows that no one with the disease should feel isolated. The Japanese joinery interlocks as a symbol of solidarity in support for AIDS. 18. HOK + FLORIM + TEKNION | STUDIO TK | LUUM + FCI Dining together is a quintessential human experience: the perfect environment to share thoughts, connect with others and strengthen relationships. Inspired by the concept of time and gathering, we celebrate the joy our dinner brings and the beautiful energy that radiates throughout. 19. LUXE Welcome to our spring sanctuary – a blooming space that brings to life the joy of springtime. "I Dream of Spring" is designer Wesley Moon's ode to the serenity of the season. Step inside our calm cocoon and be embraced by the warmth of spring. DIFFA'S 21 ST ANNUAL DINING BY DESIGN 13 14 18 17
