PINK3A copie

To celebrate our participation with 1stdibs during the 2018 Salone del Mobile fair this year, Eddy Sykes has created this one of a kind exclusive Scaffold table in Pink Rosa Borba marble. Made entirely by hand, by the artist himself, this solid bronze and marble table is truly a work of superb craftsmanship and design. Similar to his other Scaffold series in every way other than its unique provenance of having been crafted by one artisan from start to finish. The scaffold table is an homage to the unsung hero of sculptural and architectural infrastructure, made entirely of bronze and marble. True to the original engineering intent of traditional scaffold systems, the table’s marble platforms and solid bronze rails provide compression and tension to the frame. (more…)

Do you know of the plant trellis signed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec (see photo here-bellow) produced by Teracrea ? It was one of the must-have objects around the early 2000’s, alongside those of Konstantin Gcric, the Campana brothers, Sebastian Bergne or Fabio Bortolani who all answered Mauro Canfori’s call to create a new dialogue between vegetation and architecture. As founder of Teracrea, Mauro Canfori had a vision “At the time, design’s only interventions were at most plastic pots, I was sure plants deserved other supports systems and containers which would allow interaction with buildings, inside and out. I went to see the young designers of whom I liked the work with one single requirement: anything but a pot-plant!”. Planetary success was immediate as the drawings were exhibited at the 2002 Milan furniture fair. Canfori’s passion for both aesthetically pleasing and functional plant systems lead him to work with Edouard François and Patrick Blanc. Together theyapply their vegetation philosophy to architecture.

TEEBooks is the most simple and invisible wall shelf system on the market. It is made entirely to serve books, DVDs, CDs, small objects… “Many shelves and bookcases exist, yet none seek to make themselves forgotten. I had in mind a design that would be truly humble, functional and durable.” explains Mauro Canfori, designer and founder of the brand. TEEBooks like the golfer’s Tee, a small T-shaped object, fundamental for the game yet made to not be seen, to not get in between the golf ball and the club. A discrete object made purely to serve a function. (more…)

The 40 internationally renowned personalities were first interviewed by Peclers agency (leader in trend consulting) and then invited to form a ‘think tank’ to define the essence of French Design based on their individual perspectives. Ten values emerged from the work and discussions of the ‘think tank’, which helped to guide the choice of iconic pieces: Art de Vivre, Panache, Elegance and a Hint of Luxury, Audacity, Cultural Openness, Heritage, Balance, Creativity and Industry, Savoir-Faire, and Sustainable Innovation. The result is the 40 cult objects seen in NO TASTE FOR BAD TASTE.
