Titia nera _Arihiro Miyake

Titia is a suspended swirl of light, ‘I had in mind a lamp that would bring together the spirit of Christmas garlands and wooden merry-go-rounds,’ summarises Arihiro Miyake. ‘It’s an old idea that I can at last bring to fruition thanks to the development of LED technology. A cluster of points of light are enclosed within a form that is as light as possible.’ Lire la suite…

Since 2014, T&P Work UNit has applied a unique methodology to coordinate the
programming and artistic and operational management of BETC’s move to the Magasins généraux in Pantin. Today two new workspaces are up and running on the top two floors of the building, Le Garage and La Cantine, and a series of benches for pathways, cumulatively 1.8 km. Luis Laplace has been commissioned to assist Mercedes Era in developing a dining room. In September T&P Work UNit will deliver its new project: a micro-architecture called Mini-Skunk and the publication of two books on relationships between offices and design, one containing images and The Generic Office project, and the other historic and theoretical texts on this subject for businesses, students and researchers.

If you like short stories, the April Vase can be summed up in a few words: designed by Sigolène Prébois and Catherine Lévy in 1991, the distinct April Vase comprises 21 tubes and is inspired by Japanese ikebana. Its shape is adaptable and enables each flower to be isolated and therefore glorified. The metallic rings slot together providing infinite flexibility for composing your arrangement. You can add or take away segments. It was an immediate success in France, the United States and Japan before joining the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou in 1997. The April Vase remains one of the era’s most enduring icons. The story does however merit closer inspection… Lire la suite…

New place for art and design, Atelier Relief invited Mathias Kiss, David Brognon & Stéphanie Rollin and Ionna Vautrin (Tryptich mirror above) to share their vison of relief at the occasion of Art Brussels last week. Founded in Brussels by Farid Issa and Thomas Erber in 2015, Atelier Relief is a triple space, a place for creating, producing and exhibiting, where reliefs, sculptural variations of an image are conceived and produced. Images and volumes are per- manently moving back and forth at the Atelier. The image stops being a flat object, changes into a volume, a shaped space. The material diffracted into a volume, ins- talled on a wall, is presented like a painting. An innovative and unusual format that draws artists, photographers and designers in like a decisive breath.  Lire la suite…

Exhibiting for the first time this spring in Milan during the Salone at Euroluce and Fuori Salone at the Brera design apartment, Atelier de Troupe, lead by artistic director Gabriel Abraham, draw from the ethos of Rudolph Schindler and 1920’s modernist design. True to his passion for ambiance, Abraham has designed a collection reflecting the aesthetic of the Schindler Chace House. A concrete building with Japanese-inspired sliding panels inspired by a trip to Yosemite, it was designed as a cooperative live/work space. The open floor plan seamlessly integrates the California landscape into the interior, setting a precedent for the architecture of Los Angeles. For their inaugural show, Atelier de Troupe will debut a large new collection of lighting and furniture reflecting this philosophy and showcase it within a set that is a reimagined version of this historic home.
