AKDO launches designer Young Huh’s Collection
The Essence Collection of waterjet glass and stone mosaics was designed for AKDO by the inimitable Interior Designer, Young Huh. The collection finds its roots in historic global patterns, but embodies au courant design by streamlining their motifs and utilizing unexpected materials and colors. At once, the line is nostalgic and energizing.
As a designer, Young is well-versed in utilizing various sources of inspiration, including art and her love of material, in order to create timeless, yet eclectic spaces. The Essence Collection’s balanced feel remains true to that signature style; taking cues from traditional terracotta tiles of diverse origins, and interpreting them with a fresh perspective.
The designer notes, “we wanted to create simpler, more attractive, and most importantly, usable patterns that touched on that same history.” To achieve just that, Young focused on crisp, clean marble as a medium, and added richly colored glass accents throughout to highlight each shape’s profile.
Young hand-selected each of the colorways in order to deliver a unique variety of aesthetics. The blue, Sapphire, suggests confidence, while the gray, Fog, soothes with its minimalistic presence, and the Emerald green hue promotes liveliness.
These unique mosaics are Ideal for use as backsplashes in bathrooms and kitchens, for unexpected accent walls, and even for statement making entryways in both residential and hospitality settings. Strike the perfect balance of current and artistically-inspired décor with the Essence Collection by Young Huh.
An original design dreamt up by Young herself, the Harmony pattern is a subtle nod to the mathematically accurate patterns of times past. The small triangles and linear composition add a modern enhancement to this otherwise timeless design.
The Legacy pattern pays tribute to traditional Moroccan designs, but has been upgraded with cleaner lines for a more streamlined look. Use this old-meets-new mosaic in a large field, for a subtly-striking appearance.
The epitome of Young’s signature style; this feminine and whimsical pattern strikes a balance between something classically beautiful and something currently cool.
Precious in nature, the Clarity pattern will transcend time and trend. It perfectly mingles a variety of rich art glass colors and multi-faceted geometric shapes, for a striking, jewel-like appearance.
