This is the ‘Mural Dishwasher’ by Marie-Christine Lacasse & Marie Claude Savard, they are both graduate students from the environment design program at the Centre de Design at the University of Quebec in Montreal. This is really interesting concept, it combines the cabinets to store the tableware with a dishwasher. You would fill up a compartment with dirty dishes, then the dishwasher would move from one to another.

My favorites Swedes of Front Design also presented new work this week. This first project is called ‘Shade’, they are hand drawn objects which are materialized like illustrations. I guess you remember their Sketch Furniture project.
‘Randomly Crystallized’ was commissioned by Swarovski for their Crystal Palace. Front Design merged precision-cut crystals with hot liquid crystal to create these unique objects. I find this lamp more interesting than the vases they did.
‘A touch of Green’ is the title of the exhibition by Droog Design in Milan. Here are 2 projects that I picked out:
‘Table Tap’ by Arnout Visser. A simple and funny idea.
‘Massive Infection’ by Pieke Bergmans. She worked together with a glass blower to create these crystal vases who are pressed (still hot) onto the wooden objects and then leave black burned stains. This one of the best things I’ve seen for a while! She has a lot more projects like this one on her website.
‘New Lease of Life’ by Demelza Hill.
A unique set of 8 glasses, all second hand and different brought together and branded as a new set of glasses giving them new life in a new family. Every set it made up of different glassed and is individual.
Details: All eight glassed have had the bases dyed and a line frosted at a set height to create a new visual link re-grouping them.
