This past week showcased the A+: The Young Designer’s Platform at Accent on Design/The New York International Gift Fair, and ‘new organics’ designer Stanley Ruiz was featured as one of the bright young stars on the design scene. You might recall that we featured Ruiz’s twig accessories right after New York Design Week in May, so we were excited to learn that he was selected to exhibit some of his latest creations at this week’s hugely popular venue. The Brooklyn designer artfully fuses craft, natural artifacts, and industrial design know-how to create sculptural objects that are grafted with new life and budding green promise.

One might say that Stanley Ruiz is really branching out with his latest ceramic collection, ‘Growth Series’, which is adorned with Manzanita twigs. Following on the popularity of his twig jewelry, these new forms have already caught the eye of major collectors and design retailers. Inspired by his time working with artisans in Southeast Asia as well as community-based craft and fair-trade initiatives, one can further understand the nature/tech dialogue that occurs in his contemporary home accessories and furniture designs. His works have most recently been shown at Maison&Objet in Paris, the designboom mart, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), and now the A+: Young Designer’s exhibition. We love the folk influences in these latest pieces and the raw quality of sustainable materials that organically meld together.
