The architects wanted the building to blend in with its surrounding landscape, thus the angular volumes perched on top of the rocky cape, which was used to anchor its raw concrete foundations.
The first module contains the main living areas, while the second volume is composed of two bedrooms. The sloped roof further reinforces an assimilation of the building with its surrounding environment, creating a sensation of sliding over the natural sloped cliff. An overhang provides shade during the hot season while emphasizing the spectacular views beyond. Burnt wood was used throughout the exterior to create a natural palette for the facade. The focal point of the main living areas was to provide panoramic views for the residents. Photography by Adrien Williams.

Faye Toogood explains, “The Modern House appeals to a particular type of homebuyer, but within that audience there are people who actually have quite different tastes.

Soft Work Seating System by Barber & Osgerby for Vitra

Presented at this year&#8217;s <a href="http://www.orgatec.com/ORGATEC/index-2.php"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Orgatec</a>, the series takes into consideration the rapidly changing atmosphere of workspaces, such as the proliferation of freelance careers and the introduction of “hot desking.&#8221;
The designers spent two years re-thinking the seating landscape, and underwent extensive research and development to conceive a seating system that would focus around the working environment versus an environment centered around desks. Explained by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, “The workstation is going the same way as the dining room – it’s disappearing as an archetype. The desk has had its day. With mobile technology you need a place to sit occasionally, or a comfortable place to hang out.” The modular construction allows Soft Work to transform into diverse seating and working positions including pivoting tables and power sockets located between the seat cushions.

                                3 Britannia Wharf is a minimalist home located in London, United Kingdom designed by <a href="http://paolocossu.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Paolo Cossu Architects</a>. The residence is a compact, split-level, two-bedroom house that is one of four houses converted in 1994 from an original factory warehouse situated on the banks of the Regents Canal.
Paolo Cossu Architects were approached by the homeowners to individually reconfigure the internal layouts of the four houses and develop new second-floor roof extensions with terraces. Numbers 3 and 4 Britannia Wharf have now been completed and number 2 is currently under construction. 3 Britannia Wharf was designed and developed with an economy of visual, spatial and structural means. A simple palette of oak, marble, and lacquered timber paneling, provide the clients with a timeless interior that enhances the quality of the existing spaces. The new spatial configuration and surface treatments enhance the penetration of natural light throughout the house subtly playing with the

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

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.

                                <a href="https://richbrilliantwilling.com/collections/vitis"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Vitis</a> is a draped chandelier created by Brooklyn-based studio <a href="https://richbrilliantwilling.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Rich Brilliant Willing</a>. Each luminous double-walled glass orb houses a unique LED module that is looped and suspended from translucent electrical cords. 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.

Minimalissimo, an established magazine dedicated to minimalism in design, wanted to create a timepiece that reflects both the brand’s minimalism ideology with Minimalissimo’s distinctive design influence. The watch case design is inspired by a smooth rock that you would find at the shore of an ocean. The brushed dial is inspired by raw industrial steel materials, and feature contrasting white on black hands to highlight was is most important; time and date. The bands are constructed of fine Italian leather, and the case is made of sapphire glass.
