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.

Philippe Nigro

February 5th, 2009

This table and chair are designed by the French designer Philippe Nigro. They were introduced during the exhibition “Design Available for Production” oganised by VIA. The table is called “Universal Base”, its name and the pictures explain everything I guess. You can just clamp any board to the legs, its width, length or thickness can be variable. The chair (or chairs) is called “Twin Chair”. Very nice work!

January 7th, 2009

Schemeta Architecture Office took an old antique table and made the surface flat again with neon pink epoxy. Some parts are transparent, others aren’t. I would have picked an other color though, some nice grey tone maybe.
