The design team proposed to remove the kitchen wall to enlarge the living room area, but after consulting with the owners, chose to retain all existing walls.
To create a coherent and durable space, the architects chose select paintings by Ellsworth Kelly and Josef Albers. Their works, although created in the 1970s, still look beautifully restrained. Assaf Hinden’s photography was in the living room, his reinterpretation of abandoned objects is quite relevant to the concept of the space. The walls are kept bare white so that the furniture would be visually prominent. The architects chose pieces that had similar outlines. Air conditioners were hidden in the cabinets or installed on secondary walls to maintain the flat and uniform environment of the space. Photography by Zhu Siyu and Che

Myro Deodorant by Visibility

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/myro-deodorant-visibility/myro_visibility_22/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/10/myro_visibility_22-810x540.jpg" alt="Myro Deodorant by Visibility" /></a>

The designers were conscious in addressing both the health concerns and the ecological impact concerns that surround the plastic injection molding industry. Visibility wanted to create a product that would not only be easy to use, but be fully recyclable and environmentally friendly. The pods slip in, are used with the familiar turning of a dial and, when empty, pop out automatically. The multifaceted shape of the hardware is designed for easy turning and a tactile experience; of course, it also prevents the deodorant from rolling away when it’s on its side.

Ever since its conception, the founders of Reform have wanted to offer a sustainable kitchen design.
As a result, Reform has partnered with one of the top architecture companies when it comes to circular economics in sustainable buildings around the world, Lendager Group, about this design. Lendager Group has exclusive rights to use the surplus wood from Dinesen, and offer an innovative approach to sustainable architecture. Dinesen typically works on customer-specific solutions, which generates a significant amount of surplus residual wood. The kitchen consists of cuts that are left over from what was supplied for other establishments, giving those pieces a new life.

In the Neighbourhood is a showcase of work from local and emerging designers, artists, and makers in the form of two unique residential settings – Grey House, an elegant North London townhouse, and Blue House, an eclectic loft set in a converted Methodist congregation hall. Blue House is a residential space that embraces the spirit of creativity, playfulness, and verve. As such, the interior features a dichotomy between eclectic colors and muted tones. The curation follows a contrast between old and new, high and low, and mass and bespoke design.

The residence is situated on complicated topography, with the building delicately sloping along the site.
The clients, with their expanding family, wanted to preserve their original home and take advantage of the vast free space along the edge of the lake. The frontage is mostly bare to maintain privacy, while the back of the home consists entirely of large glazings. The part of the home closest to the lake is three-stories and reveals a facade articulated by angles and large openings. The clients generally have people over to their home, and wanted a large kitchen and dining space that would accommodate their gatherings. Photography by Adrien William.

Their work is generally characterized by an intersection between art and design, having described it as &#8220;conceptual glamour.&#8221;
Their works are designed using contemporary technology, but are always crafted and finished by hand. As a result, their collection consists of limited edition pieces that include both functional and sculptural works. Offset cube was created as an exploration to combine minimalist austerity with a luxurious sensibility. The result is a piece that is equal parts functional and conceptual. The bench is constructed of welded bronze over wood, and is upholstered in all-natural wool, latex foam, and cotton.

The project is a renovation and extension of a commercial building with an entirely new floor added that is characterized by a monolithic steel roof.
The rooftop pergola not only provides an expanded volume, but allows the project to be aligned in continuity with its neighbors from the street. A series of vertical brick details as well as large glazings accentuates the perception of depth for the building. The third floor office space is organized with the conference room in the front while the lobby and circulation areas are naturally lit through skylights. The overall monochrome tones are accented by bright colors, with blue build-ins and a red staircase. Photography by Adrien Williams.

The chair was designed specifically to be shipped flat, and can be assembled and disassembled without tools. Its most notable feature is the belt element that secures the assembled chair.
The chair consists of eight components and can be easily assembled in four steps. The user first connects the legs onto the cross brace. Once completed, the seat can be attached and locked into the cross brace. The backrest pins onto the leg uprights, and the belt cinches around the legs to keep the components firmly in place. The chair comes in two variations, natural and black, with the natural variation being made of sustainably forested American white oak, while the black variation uses reclaimed merbau, which is then hand finished and stained with a black protective coat.

The shelves are assembled sans tools and come flat-packed for convenient shipping and storage when needed. The outer framework and folded steel shelves snap together via plastic clips.
Inspired by inexpensive wire shelving often seen in dorms and first apartments, Gradient presents the idea of easy-to-assemble furniture in a more architectural format. Horizontal elements increase in frequency from top to bottom, giving the design its namesake “gradient” effect, while keeping items contained within the shelf. The sides and back of the shelf are secured by extruded ABS plastic clips, allowing sheet steel shelves to rest inside the structure. The result is a design that can be assembled in less than five minutes by one person, without the use of a tiny allen wrench. Photography by Blaine Davis.

The connection of rigid and soft elements displays an attention to detail explored by master craftsmanship.
This new collection explores seamless integration of lighting to architecture via recessed and invisible components and perfects the control of dim-to-warm LEDs with smooth precision dimming. Named Vitis after the latin origin of vineyard, the gesture of this statement chandelier connotes a vine laden with orbs of fruit. Given the importance of the elegant and smooth draped gesture, a flat and translucent electrical cord was created after weeks of exploration and development of an innovative internal flexible structure.

Each orb features Articolo&#8217;s signature bubble detailing, while the piece itself evokes a sophisticated yet organic Nordic sensibility. When lit, the bubble patterns are cast against the wall.
Suspended with grace, the pendant illuminates softly as its light source is concealed within a trio of mouth-blown glass orbs. The orbs are supported by three solid brass rods that come together with a central cuff. Trilogy exemplifies Articolo’s exploration of materiality, form, and luminance.

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/trilogy-pendant-articolo/trilogy_articolo_233333/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/07/trilogy_articolo_233333-810x777.jpg" alt="The Minimalist Trilogy Pendant by Articolo" /></a>
                                <a href="http://articololighting.com/product-type/pendant?product=scandi-pendant-trilogy-brass"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Trilogy Pendant</a> is a minimalist pendant designed by Australia-based studio <a href="http://articololighting.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Articolo</a>. Each orb features Articolo&#8217;s signature bubble detailing, while the piece itself evokes a sophisticated yet organic Nordic sensibility. When lit, the bubble patterns are cast against the wall.
Suspended with grace, the pendant illuminates softly as its light source is concealed within a trio of mouth-blown glass orbs. The orbs are supported by three solid brass rods that come together with a central cuff. Trilogy exemplifies Articolo’s exploration of materiality, form, and luminance.

The mother occupies the first floor, while her son, his wife, and their child are on the second and third floors. The third floor was handled as a single volume containing private areas such as the master and child’s bedrooms and the bathroom. The first floor was also treated as a single volume offset from the third floor volume so as to open up space for a terrace on the first floor roof. In between these two volumes, the second floor is bounded by two continuous surfaces that fit together like puzzle pieces, embracing an open living room that is integrated

Overlapping semi-translucent curtains were in constant movement due to the soft breeze that together with the sunlight created dramatic shades of metallic patterns, glass surfaces and water along the floors. Accompanied by the experience of walking through the exhibition in a soft zigzag route is a mystical smell of wood and a dynamic sound installation by Matias Bieniaszewski, who converted the sounds of the designed objects into a musical piece. The work of the product and furniture designers Max Enrich, Goula/Figuera, Sebastian Alberdi, Alejandra Perini, Alberto Vitelio, Proyecto Rastro,

Dmitriy & Co S/S18 Furniture Collection

                                <a href="https://www.dmitriyco.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Dmitriy &amp; Co</a> has recently launched its newest collection, inspired by classic forms with a modern twist. The pieces were conceived by mixing 19th century Parisian furniture with elements found in mid-century design, embodying refined forms with a quiet sophistication.
Each piece is handcrafted with careful consideration for subtle details, with tailoring expressed through hand-sewn stitching, not unlike couturier craftsmanship. The manufacturers wanted to create pieces that transform not only the space, but how users interact with the piece. Producing the pieces serves as both a vehicle of artistic expression and an ancient trade that remains embedded in Dmitriy & Co’s heritage. The pieces are all handmade in Long Island City.
