In Loving Memory – The Lamborghini Countach

June 10th, 2009

“In Loving Memory – The Lamborghini Countach” is a design project by Martin Meier. To Martin, the Lamborghini Countach is the goddess of all super cars. Many of his childhood fantasies and early design adventures revolved around its very design. It embodies the quintessence of engineering and styling qualities focused on performance. “In loving Memory” is a collection of design classics on which he applied the extreme aesthetics of the Countach.
Many thanks to spanier for the photos!

3 Sets by 5.5 Designers

May 12th, 2009

The 5.5 Designers were inspired by Roland-Garros when they designed “3 Sets”. The names of the 3 objects are of course tennis related. The stool is called BREAK and was corded by the official Roland-Garros official cordeur Laurent Lucas. The decanter and glasses are called ACE, they look like the typical tubes where you store your tennis balls in. The last item is the 15-30 BOARD which is a homage to the mythical scores board in Paris.

Stefan Diez will present his new chair family called Houdini in Milan this week. They come in a side chair and a chair wirth armrest version. The chairs are made of 4mm thin oak-veneered plywood, which is glued to a milled solid wood ring. Personaly I like the side chair the most, it has simple shape with some distinct lines.
They will be avaible from e15 in natural oak, black, white and grey lacquer finishes as well as custom colours.
