Facade of 10 Hills Place

September 11th, 2009

The Facade of 10 Hills Place in London is very different than anything I’ve seen before. Hills Place is a very narrow street, so the architects at Amanda Levete Architects decided to cut open the facade and to install sky orientated windows to attract some daylight into the office spaces. I think it looks great with the aluminum skin.

July 3rd, 2009

Teruhiro Yanagihara is a Japanese interior and product designer with a really minimal style. You might remembed the interior of this hair salon in Tokyo. His website is actually brand new, somehow I like it somehow I don’t.

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.

BLUR Collection by Big-Game

May 12th, 2009

The “BLUR Collection” by Big-Game is one of the better design projects I’ve seen lately. The vases are so high that the flowers disappear almost completely into them, only their colored shadow appear through the frosted glass. The tables and mirrors are silkscreened with a gradient. Your reflection disappears towards to bottom of the mirror. The tables look like they are up in the clouds. Nice work!

Haaa!!! & Hooo!!! by Philippe Starck

May 4th, 2009

Haaa!!! and Hooo!!! are 2 new lamps designed by Philippe Starck, Haaa!!! is a big floor lamp, Hooo!!! is a table lamp. Actually it was a true collaboration between 5 parties: the design is by Philippe Starck, text is by Jenny Holzer, the custom electronics were done by Moritz Waldemeyer, the crystal by Baccarat and the execution by Flos.
The be honest, I don’t think the design is very interesting, I’m pretty sure that Philippe recycled some of his older designs … So why is it interesting? For me it is the visual effect of having a white LED matrix running through a handmade crystal lamp, displaying the truisms of Jenny Holzer.  Of course both a very limited, only 9 units will be available of Haaa!!! and will cost €90.000, Hooo!!! will be build 49 times and will set you back €9.000.
