Dekochari is typical Japanese phenomenon, deko is short for decoration and chari is slang for bike. Dekochari are actually the kids version of dekotora, which are decorated trucks. Satoshi Minakawa made these photos of these awesome vehicles.

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.

Starbrick by Olafur Eliasson

April 28th, 2009

The Starbrick is an experiment with light modulation and space by Olafur Eliasson for Zumtobel. The configuration below is made of several Starbricks. But you can use them on their own or in different structures. I would definitely like to see these in real life.

Coral lamp by Studio Aisslinger

April 23rd, 2009

The Coral lamp by Studio Aisslinger is made of hexagonal felt submodules. It should remind you of a sea life coral structure, but I say it could be a honeycomb too. Sspecially in yellow.

Diesel Home Collection

April 22nd, 2009

Diesel is the next fashion brand to launch its own furniture line, it definitely fits its claim “Sucessful Living”. They teamed up with 3 brands : Moroso for the furniture, Foscarini for the lightning and Zucchi for the home textiles. You can see some items from the collection in this Wallpaper gallery.
My favorite is this lamp called Rock.
