Fashion? Art ? Architecture?
Yes indeed! These are shoes! Maybe architecture, perhaps an experiment. Between reality and futuristic prototypes these shoes are simply incredible and hard to classify! They look hitech but they are all handmade.

Front - Design made in Sweden!

. Monday, April 27, 2009

Sofia Lagerkvist, Anna Lindgren, Charlotte von der Lancken and Katja Sävström were selected in 2003 for the "Satellite", a collateral Pavillion to the Salone del Mobile in Milan. This year they came back with different pieces of their collections.

Here are some of their work. Funny, somehow intrestingly kitsch, sophisticate. They're already being called the "anti-Ikea" but in fact, they actually worked with the swedish multinational brand proposing lamps and chairs.

Their work ranges from chairs to vases, fom art to sculptural furniture. From fake-bookshelves to horse with a lamp on their head!

Go and check their website immediately! Incredible and interesting work!

Philippe Bestenheider's Projects

. Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Forms and lines are probably the main characteristics of Philippe Bestenheider's design furniture.

Geometry and materiality. This chair collection "lui5" and "lui6" designed for Fratelli Boffi will be launched at the Milan "Salone del Mobile" the end of this month.

Chairs from the Nanook Collection. Their structure reminds us of natural forms. Very ancient in the idea behind its design but very futuristic in regards of its technology. Resin structure with printed fabric.

Multiple Zaha

. Monday, March 23, 2009

Architects lately put their energy outside the world of architecture as we know it. Building apparel, objects and other everyday pieces. It is also architecture we are looking at since they all deal with form, structure, colors and many other elements of architecture. Zaha Hadid is lately working with different companies creating shoes, taps, and more!

Tap of the future! The architect joins brassware british manufacturer Triflow for this very architectural everyday piece.
"The design is a formal expression of the continuous flow of liquid - merging the spout, body and handle of the tap in a seamless trajectory of curvilinear geometries".
Very elegant indeed.

Zaha Hadid is also working with French-based fashion label Lacoste to create a footwear collection that's slated for release in spring/summer 2009.

Teaming up with Melissa, brasilian brand for this eco-vegan plastic shoes.
100% recyclable.
