Space concept by Rene Siebum

Posted on 8th June by admin with Comments Off

Rene Siebum works to combine the way we experience the world around us with form, space and design. He attempts to bring out the emotion that design can evoke, and infuse it into refined materials. Siebum has an eye for maintaining function while exploring the edges of form, which helps him come up with unique designs like the Second Skin closet pictured above. It is both a closet and a living space, as well as an eye-catching piece of design. He bases this closest space on ancient Japanese architecture which is open and flexible, transforming a space based on its use and the mood of the participant. Based on the activity of the moment they could be transformed by using screens, curtains and furniture.

Second Skin was awarded the third prize in public vote during the Dutch Design Week. And the award is very well deserved, as this bookcase transforms into an intimate space for reading and working. For some people the study room is the second home, that is why the head. The idea of seclusion became the inspiration for a bookcase and a lamp, from which a separate space can be created from the objects itself for reading, writing and working. The aim of the space is to create an environment that embraces and allows us to focus and close off. Moving on, this bookcase is inspired by Juhani Pallasma and is made in wood washi parer and aluminum. Its ability to adapt and in providing you with a private environment in the cacophony of your daily environment sets it apart and makes it the winner.

Rene Siebum specializes in wood design in which the physical, sensorial or subconscious experience form the basis of the object or space. From within this material expertise he searches for a balanced total of concept, form and materials.

Cabinet by Sebastian Errazuriz

Posted on 23rd May by admin with Comments Off

Exotic Cupboard Called Magistral Cabinet is another extravagant work by famous artist and designer-experimenter Sebastian Errazuriz. The surface of capacious vertical cabinet placed on itself more than 80 000 bamboo sticks which form looks like a pencil.

Chilean by its origin Sebastian Errazuriz lives and works in New York creating conceptual and original objects pretending on the dominant of any placement where they will be placed. Capacious cupboard hiding behind “the protective bristle” will be able to protect your things with unique style owing to its dynamic effect created with the numerous of “needles” which “animates” this functional furniture hiding its real destination.

Like all the inventions of author Magistral Cabinet is the handmade work. Twelve high-qualified carpenters worked at the creating of this piece furniture element during six weeks. Every bamboo stick was hammered in the hole in the wooden “body” made before.

As the result of laborious process they got the ideally balanced cabinet which niches and pull-out cases are invisible for eye when the construction is in close condition. The guest who does not let into the secret will feel quite difficult to guess the functioning mechanism of this surprising furniture which looks more like the conceptual art-object which is created not for the discourse about comfort of taking off dust or cleaning.

Nowadays Magistral Cabinet is the part of exposition of New York Cristina Grajales Gallery where the impressive construction can be seen and touched by everybody.

Lamp-Vase by Roger Arquer for Bosa

Posted on 4th May by admin with Comments Off

London designer Roger Arquer has designed these lamps which are operated by touching the flowers in the adjoining vase, presented in Milan earlier this month by design brand Bosa. Using touch sensitive technology the Touch Lamp Vase is operated by the flowers in the vase. This piece has been launched at the Salone di Mobile, Milano 2011.

Touch is an hybrid between a lamp and a flower base. The flowers work as a switch for the light: when touched, the light goes on or off.

Touch invites you to a playful experience combining water with light, yet being 100% safe. Touch sensitive technology is being used here, while the high content of water on the flowers makes them conductive and sensitive when touched. This piece will add an accent of colour as an ambient light. It can be placed in restaurants, hotel rooms, lobbies, home entrance or hallway.

The vessel is made of one entire ceramic piece. The lampshade is made of fabric. Electricity runs on 12V. The water can be easily replaced when need it.

Roger Arquer graduated from Escola Superior de Disseny Industrial, Sabadell in 1998. Soon after graduating, he moved to New York, where he worked for several designers and artists. In 2003, he moved to London to attend an MA in Design Products at the Royal College of Art. He opened his studio in London in 2005 and since then has worked for companies such as Royal VKB, Eno, Thorsten Van Elten and Mathmos. He teaches at Central Saint Martin’s and in Camberwell. Arquer is interested in how quotidian objects have the capacity to give us pleasure as we use them, “good designs have that extraordinary power of making life easier and more enjoyable”. His work has been exhibited around the world, from Milano to Tokyo and his native Barcelona.

Tables by Raw Edges for Arco

Posted on 25th April by admin with Comments Off

London design studio Raw Edges presented its dressing table and a desk with hinged drawers for Dutch brand Arco at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan last week.

The piece is a development of the designers’ Pivot project for the brand, originally launched with a cascading two-drawer unit in 2008. Two drawers hinge, rather than slide, out of the body of the cabinet, which is made from lacquered oak. The desk and dressing table versions have shorter legs and either a deeper table top or recess for a mirror along the back.

The highly successful Pivot, a wall cabinet with two drawers, launched by Arco in 2008, has since been publicized and exhibited worldwide and has won various awards. The designer, Shay Alkalay, created the prototype in just three days. The fact that the drawers hinge rather than slide makes it possible to open both drawers at the same time, creating a new typology.

There are now two different versions of the Pivot. Alkalay: “The Pivot is ideal if you don’t have much space, and also for things that don’t require much space. It also makes a very handy little work table with drawers – a writing desk that is just the thing for a laptop.”

The original cabinet has been made slightly lower and has been given an integrated desk top to create the Pivot Desk. The Pivot Vanity is a make-up table with a recess for a mirror in the top.

Raw-Edges is the official collaboration between Yael Mer & Shay Alkalay which started after many years of sharing life, thoughts, ideas and everything in-between. Yael’s main focus includes turning two-dimensional sheet materials into curvaceous functional forms, whereas Shay is fascinated by how things move, function and react. Now is their work they share a common goal to create objects that have never been seen before.

 

Chair by Zaha Hadid for Sawaya & Moroni

Posted on 20th April by admin with Comments Off

Architect Zaha Hadid presented this zig-zag chair for producers Sawaya & Moroni in Milan last week. The Z-Chair is made of polished stainless steel in a limited edition of 24 pieces.

The design of the Z-Chair Chair summarizes the essence of contemporary design and the research developed by Zaha Hadid Architects over the last three decades. A simple three-dimensional gesture zigzags in the space as part of the continued discourse between form and function, elegance and utility, differentiation and continuity.

Geometric abstractions inform the design’s linear loop, which is articulated along its path in a language that alternates thin wire streams and large surfaces to provide both ergonomic affordances and inherent stability to the overall shape. The dichotomy between the elegance of the composition and its articulation is negotiated through a subtle play of contrasting angular corners and wide, smooth curves.

The resulting form echoes the calligraphic gestures of Hadid’s two-dimensional works; a controlled brush stroke on a canvas, the perfect synthesis of an idea: the sketch.

Zaha Hadid, founding partner of Zaha Hadid Architects, is internationally known for her built, theoretical and academic work. Each of her dynamic and innovative projects builds on over thirty years of revolutionary experimentation and research in the interrelated fields of urbanism, architecture and design.

Founded in 1984 as a result of an idea by William Sawaya and Paolo Moroni, the company bases its production on a number of exponents of contemporary design with differing cultural backgrounds and design concepts.

Colorful furniture by Lubo Majer

Posted on 16th April by admin with Comments Off

Merry, colorful youth furniture called Iris by Slovakian designer Lubo Majer – this is three striped armchair and one soft and long sofa for living room, hall or reception in the office decorated in democratic style. Designer took inspiration from the rainbow to create Iris. The furniture not just replicates the rainbow colors but also the design. The multi-colored foams are attached together to form chair and broader sofa designs. The bright shades for Iris will help the home get a different feel altogether. Especially with the walls painted in white.

Probably the fans of uncommon interior in the apartment will not refuse from such positive ray of light. Turning Iris into the sofa it is pleasant to have rest on it in front of the TV-set and when the guests come one element of furniture will be quickly turned into three ones. As people say, one in three – and this is its’ power.

Here we should make it more exact that this sofa is not suitable for sleeping, – it will be hard, not comfortable and in general it is desirable to sleep on the bed. But in our case Iris is the “hard” sofa made of foamed material covered with the wool upholstery so it is comfortable to clean but not to sleep. Conventional upholstery method – osb+wooden frame with springs, cold foam with various density and woolen cover provide comfortable sitting also.

Lubo Majer works together with DIZAJNO – a group of people which sees ideas for what they truly are, take time to understand and perceive them with humor. Company’s designs are inspired by everyday life. Company’s products are designed with love and are full of fantasy. Their originality and honest workmanship bring pleasure and positive emotions to your home.

Collection of furniture by Marco Dessí for Skitsch

Posted on 7th April by admin with Comments Off

Vienna designer Marco Dessí will present a collection of furniture made from folded and tubular steel in Milan next week. Called Dakar, the design for Italian brand Skitsch has a chair backrest made from one piece of sheet steel, curled round the tubular structure. Table legs are constructed in a similar way, while the edges of the chair seat and table top are folded to appear draped over their frames.

Marco Dessí’s new stackable aluminum chair Dakar is not just fun and ultra light, but also somewhat of a lesson in thoughtful construction. The design of the backrest which is made out of only one metal sheet demonstrates both, the stability and at the same time flexibility of the material when cleverly applied: Covering the tube metal legs of the chair like a dress, the bent metal sheet results in a backrest of grand stability, and still it gives way like a spring when you lean back. This all-metal chair is comfortable! And it comes in five well-selected colors or in combinations between these, thus leaving lots of room for individual taste.

The choice of material makes Dakar a light but extremely durable piece of furniture suitable for outdoors just as much as indoors. Like other designs by Dessí, it creates the impression as if it could be taken apart into its basic components within seconds. His constructive approach once more reminds us of earlier and more transparent stages of mechanization while being totally contemporary.

Marco Dessí founded his own design studio in 2007 and since then realizes projects with renowned manufacturers like Lobmeyr, Augarten or Richard Lampert. Marco Dessís approach of tinkering with shapes and possibilities until they “fit” and feel light and intuitive again, his close reading of the production process, be it crafted or industrial, and the sparse but effective use of fine detail leads to products that suggest both the radically contemporary and aesthetic longevity.
