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!

"Clouds" by R. & E. Bouroullec

. Monday, April 20, 2009

Technological innovation and natural themes are the main characteristics of the brothers Bouroullec's research.

The project "Clouds" consists in a serie of octagonal textile modules that are assembled together.

The work speaks for itself! Incredible effects!

The modules assemblage generates different forms, shapes giving the space in which they hang a completely different reading.

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.

Design: Philippe Bestenheider

Skin Dresses by Philips Design Probes

. Friday, April 3, 2009

The prototype-fabrics of Philips Design Probes can become soon reality.

"One of this year’s Probe project areas is SKIN, which examines the future integration of sensitive materials in the area of emotional sensing – the shift from ‘ intelligent’ to ‘sensitive’ products and technologies.
As part of SKIN, we have developed two ‘Soft Technology’ outfits to identify the future for high tech materials and Electronic Textile Development in the area’s of skin and emotional sensing.
The dresses show emotive technology and how the body and the near environment can use pattern and color change to interact and predict the emotional state
Very impressive!
