Malibu might be known for its extraordinary homes but until this fall, its denizens had to travel east—far east—for design services, furnishings and accessories. That’s changed now, thanks to the opening of Malibu Beach House, a new shop devoted to all things home at the Trancas Country Market, the brainchild of Lisa Houge and Laura Burdge, partners in the design firm Quintessential Designs.

FORM Tech: 5+design Goes 3D

5+design's models, such as one for the China World Trade Center, blend cutting-edge technology with more traditional methods. Image courtesy 5+design.

For Hollywood-based 5+design, a global creative design studio, projects skew big and complex. Think retail and restaurant spaces for one of Royal Caribbean’s largest ships, the interiors of Russia’s largest shopping mall and the China World Trade Center in Beijing, home to the country’s tallest office building. Realizing those projects, though, takes creativity–not to mention the ability to harness cutting-edge technologies. For the latter, the firm was an early adopter of 3D printing, which has allowed a new degree of flexibility.
