FORM Teams Up with Selamat to Create Unique
Must-Have Capsule Collection

Collaboration between dynamic design firm and sophisticated, natural furnishings manufacturer
to bring design-forward products to residential and contract markets this fall 

FORM, the exclusive Los Angeles-based full-service design firm, and Selamat Designs, the San Francisco-based furniture manufacturer, are joining forces to create an exclusive, chic and timeless Capsule Collection. The collaboration that will produce a line of unique must-have furnishings is set to debut to the public in Austin, TX in November of this year in a pop-up shop setting with introductions in Las Vegas and High Point markets to follow in January 2016. After these select launch debuts, the line will be immediately available to the trade.
The collaboration will focus on all major categories in the home and hospitality markets, from larger anchor pieces to accessories. FORM pulled inspiration from a deep love for and respect of the hand-made.  
“Our collection is intended to be intimate and refined—it captures the simplest of forms and the finest of finishes; it may even ask you to think a little bit,” remarks Joshua Rose, one of the two principal designer at FORM. 
“The organization of ideas relies heavily on scale, angle, technique and juxtaposition,” said Rafael Kalichstein, FORM’s other principal designer. “It is meant to be approachable and visceral. We can’t wait to see it shine in projects around the globe.”
Selamat Designs boasts a broad range of customers from individual designers to large commercial designers and retail companies.
“We could not be more excited to be in collaboration with such a talented firm as FORM. We are thrilled to bring a fresh voice to Selamat and to broaden our appeal,” says Thatcher Davis, co-owner of Selamat Designs. “Their unique vantage point as mavens of design will be an excellent compliment to the time-tested work we already do so well. 
“Every piece of furniture and every accessory the company offers tells a tale,” recounts Shannon Davis, Selamat’s co-owner. “Ours is a classic story for every occasion. We aim for this collection to reach a new customer base as well as excite our current, dedicated clientele; we are elated to be incorporating this new perspective into the Selamat line and we can’t wait to welcome all the new people to the Selamat party.”

adidas Originals | Winter AF 1.3 PK & AF 1.4 PK | Launch Pack
 Inspired by the unpredictable weather conditions of winter, adidas Originals introduces two new silhouettes this season designed to stand up to whatever the colder season has to offer, without sacrificing visual effect.

The shoe blends modern aesthetics with a range of technical elements to create a striking silhouette with practical considerations. The shoe’s full Primeknit upper is structured by coated overlays for waterproofing, reinforced by a weather-resistant lining for protection against the elements. This is strengthened further by an insulation sock-liner and full-length lacing system, finished with embroidered 3-stripes marks and essential branding details.
