New & Notable

JANUS et Cie’s Serengeti furniture collection, a 1950s jewelry exhibition at SCAD, and an eye-inspired clock by MB&F.

New & Notable is a cultural catchall that highlights interesting new products and projects from our brilliantly creative members of The List. With new releases, events, and goings-on, the below moments indicate the power they have to move the needle in so many realms, including architecture, design, fashion, and art.

Atmosphere collection by Calico Wallpaper

Following their moody Noir collection, the Brooklyn-based wallpaper brand chronicles the ephemeral nature of the ever-changing sky in its latest launch titled Atmosphere. The eight-part series channels atmospheric clouds and abstracts their hues into a medley of hand-painted scenes that take inspiration from the amorous works of artist J.M.W. Turner.

Orb clock by MB&F and L’Epée 1839

Drawing on L’Epée 1839’s portfolio of watch mechanisms, Max Büsser melds its playful brand ethos with the Swiss clockmaker to debut an eye-inspired clock interface that doubles as work of art. The limited-edition timepiece sports palladium-plated brass, inset with rubies, and changes form as its four elytra widen and shut like a dilating iris.
