Announcing Unison- 09.01.06
Welcome to September, where does the time go… to kick in this new month, and the unfortunate beginning of the end of summer, new tags for Gallery NOTCOT! This time we are proud to present the new collection by Unison, a new up and comer that recently launched at ICFF in spring… but don’t be fooled, gorgeous pieces like these don’t come easily - from Chicago, this husband and wife team has quite a reputation in the design world, and you’ve probably seen their work before and just not realized it! Robert Segal + Alicia Rosauer have Rhode Island School of Design degrees in photography and textiles, lived in Finland working for Marimekko for 4 years, and have designed for Crate and Barrel and Chiasso (owned by Segal’s father and brother respectively). And to top it all off, they are high school sweethearts ~ and share my passion for vibrant minimalist design. I love how their line is brightening up NOTCOT today, so take a look and keep an eye out for Unison ~ it has already been popping up on Daily Candy and d*s covered them as well!
[Besides, for those who don’t know, i grew up on Marimekko, still have all the towels from when i was a little kid… and it was one of the most exciting discoveries when wandering around Stockholm, even gave in and got Marimekko clogs… and still carry the majority of my tech cables in a Marimekko pouch. So it’s exciting on multiple levels to be featuring such a strong textiles collection on NOTCOT this month. And don’t you think the colors just liven up the place?]
