This black piramid house in Saijo, Hiroshima, was designed by Suppose Design Office. Have you ever seen something like this before? We should invite some of these Japanese architects to Europe ASAP.

Teruhiro Yanagihara

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.

Selective Insulation

May 29th, 2009

“Selective Insulation” is a project by the architects Davidson Rafailidis. They developed this small study as a room in a room, which is in a big difficult to heat, old school building. The shape is defined by a few parameters: the daylight conditions, 2 people need a minimum of 4m² desk-related office space and they wanted to have desk, a window and a way to enter/exit. The whole framework is quite simple and wrapped with an insulating layer of double-ply bubblewrap.

Selgas Cano Architecture Office

May 6th, 2009

This is the office of the Selgas Cano architects in Madrid, I guess it’s not downtown Madrid.  They definitely have a different perspective on their surroundings.

Wall-Through-Wall Carpet

April 29th, 2009

“Wall-Through-Wall Carpets” are a product of Carpets for Buildings.

A wall-through-wall-carpet is the result of design strategy for buildings in which the floor plan and the perception of space are the basic principles. With the use of computer-controlled carpet printing machines it is possible to create special visual and spheric effects for the building in combination with a carefully executed carpeting plan.

The colors are wild.

Maison Martin Margiela – Mat, Satiné, Brillant

April 24th, 2009

“Mat, Satiné, Brillant” is the title of the Maison Martin Margiela installation in Milan. It is the introduction of the Maison Martin Margiela furniture collection and interior design and architecture services. The installation is an exact reproduction of the Interior Design workshop of the Paris Headquarters, where all stores, showrooms, and architectural projects are conceived.
I think most of it is very average. The trompe l’oeil doors, the table made of many trestles and the shelves made of brackets (in the second photo) are the best items.

Goshka Macuga

March 11th, 2009

Goshka Macuga was one of the 4 nominees for the Turner Price 2008. She presented these 3 installations called “Haus der Frau 1″, “Haus der Frau 2″ and “Deutsches Volk – deutsche Arbeit”, beside other work. They are based on the collaboration between Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich during the 20ies and 30ies. “Haus de Frau 1″ & “Haus der Frau 2″ are actually displays to present textiles, just like Mies van der Rohe & Lilly Reich did. “Deutsches Volk – deutsche Arbeit” was actually designed by Mies van der Rohe & Lilly Reich for an exhibtion to promote German glass.
