© Nicolas Saieh Sarovic_Plaut Arquitectos’ latest work, “The Grater,” was the Bazar ED 2017 entry pavilion. Last November, Bazar ED’s 13th annual fair united design, decoration and trends at Santiago’s Bicentennial Park.
The pavilion is the first thing people see when they enter the fair and the last thing they see as they leave, making it a particularly memorable space. The spatial atmosphere created by Sarovic_Plaut Arquitectos plays with light and wind to enhance visitors sensorial experience.
Being a temporary installation, the pavilion was designed as a prefabricated structure. Once the architectural components were fabricated, they were assembled on site in the park. The experimental nature of “The Grater” is what made it unforgettable to visitors.
“The Grater,” was made of steel and Aislapol, high density polystyrene mono-block walls. It stood at 4.5 meters high with
The bathroom is one of the most static and traditional spaces in any residence. However, in recent times, this space has gained an identity that relates directly to the interior and exterior design of the house. As architects, we strive to create a warm, dynamic and attractive space for users.
Today, bathrooms that include new technologies, clean projects, integrating new materials with an emphatic use of color are highlighted. Next, we compiled a selection of 34 toilets that reflect this trend.

Smart design solutions, such as this, are essential for any modern day tiny house or apartment. Keep reading to learn everything this transformer can do. A modular system allows this furniture element to open and fold into different design solutions based on the client's needs. Many of the client's requests involved the ability to host other people.
By utilizing vertical space, the design maximizes area and participates in the evolution of micro-living.
When the furniture is acting as storage in it’s furled state, the living room can comfortably accommodate seven people. The storage unit turns into a privacy screen as you open it up halfway, and
Cortesía de Departamento de Arquitectura de la Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's self-supporting bridge, architect Diego Poblete has developed a structure that can be assembled in less than 15 minutes and, according to his study, can support up to 500 kilograms. Focusing on the issue of connectivity in rural towns, Poblete developed a wooden system that is assembled without using a single screw, optimizing the use of the resource and facilitating easy construction:
With this we can facilitate the journey of children to school in rural areas, in areas where paths are interrupted by rivers or streams. Also, once the structure has reached its useful life, the parts can be easily replaced by new ones, while the wood, being a natural material, can be reused or recycled. In this way, this pedestrian bridge is also an environmentally friendly solution.The project was born from Poblete's thesis project as a pedestrian walkway and is

Courtesy of Rafael Araujo Rafael Araujo is a Venezuelan architect and illustrator who at the age of fifteen began to observe intelligent patterns in nature, giving rise to his interest in the golden ratio located in our natural environment.
More than 40 years later, the results of this hobby is a collection of beautiful illustrations of nature made entirely by hand, equipped with a pencil, a compass, a ruler and a protractor. The artist's illustrations give his ability to represent the mathematical brilliance of the natural world, inciting the reunion of humans with nature.

The installation is composed of an arrangement of translucent screens, digital generative images displayed through a projector and sensors that respond directly and visually to the proximities and movements of its users.
The experience takes place in a closed room with a single entrance and in complete darkness, where the only light source comes from the projector. The arrangement of screens gives light a three-dimensional effect in space, while allowing people to walk through the installation.
With their work, the artists seek to create an experience that
© STUDIO BEEN When you think of original designs, you know that you're talking about something unique and special. An innovative design that can change our perception and visual culture: that is exactly what the German designer Elisa Strozyk does with Wooden Textiles, a product line that mixes wood with fabric. The designer shows us that innovation remains a fundamental part of design. She imbues wood with living properties and turns it to a flexible fabric with unpredictable movements, changing its color and texture. It’s an astonishing use of this traditional material to create new forms and experiences.
Wooden textiles seeks to convey a new tactile experience. We're used to experiencing wood as a hard material. We know the feeling of walking on a hardwood floor, touching a table or just feeling the bark of a tree. But we don’t usually experience a wooden surface that can be
