A 1963 House Renovation That Pays Homage to Architect Oscar Niemeyer

                                Designed in 1963 by George Reeves, this <a href="https://luigirosselli.com/news/homage-to-oscar"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">classic modernist house</a> was beginning to show its age before a renovation by <a href="https://luigirosselli.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Luigi Rosselli Architects</a>. The clients liked the overall layout of the home, but they wanted improved indoor/outdoor connections and to restore and enhance the original beauty of the design. Nods to iconic Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer are present throughout the residence, like the sculptural concrete awning at the entry that welcomes visitors.

Lush greenery surrounds the all-white structure softening the lines of the angular design.

The interior was connected to the outside with multiple floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that open the spaces up. The tropical landscape, designed by Dangar Barin Smith, gives the outdoor space a vacation-like vibe away from its Sydney location.

The corner of the dining room disappears to give the feeling of eating outside.

The original cantilevered switchback staircase was carefully restored.

The curvy bulkhead ceilings

                                Once again, the MADE section of the <a href="http://addesignshow.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Architectural Digest Design Show</a> stole the spotlight, celebrating new works from emerging talent and established designers alike. Most importantly is the consistency and commitment of MADE in showcasing young designers, placing emphasis on quality over quantity. Check out some of our favorites from the show.

Fracture Studios launched their latest collection, Ripple, which sees the studio using gradients, ​depth and texture​ ​to build upon its ​Shift​ series, creating another layer of complexity & mystery. The collection includes lighting, furniture, and accessories, all using a spectrum of color rendered between aqua blue and purple.

Laine + Alliage debuted Consider:Balance, a space that is evocative of the ever pursued concept of balance through a careful selection of etherial silk organza panels interacting with the grounding earth element of natural fiber woven rugs.

The New Normal: Changing Perceptions of Portion Size Through Tableware Design

                                Quantifying food for events is a caterer’s gamble. With every party we produce, a delicate guessing game of how much of each item to make comes into play. Our chef Bob Spiegel is the ultimate champion of this game… a 30-year catering veteran. Essentially you are banking on your experience… which items are crowd pleasers, which items are geared for the more adventurous eater, and of course plate size. It’s an educated guess at best. Luckily we almost always get it right.

Now comes the question, how do we quantify food for ourselves? A major factor in rising obesity is portion distortion. So as the portion sizes grow, a new normal is accepted. And now that 39% of adults worldwide are considered obese, even designers are jumping in to try and solve this issue.

We came across a stunning and relevant tabletop product from Royal College of Art graduate Ponsawan

Artefatto Design Studio and the Ever-Present Urge to Evolve

                                Since being founded in 2016, <a href="http://www.artefatto.co.uk/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Artefatto</a> design studio has been headed up by three young designers eager to get their hands dirty. In 2017 they had their standout moment at the Milan Furniture Fair, putting them firmly on the map of the design world. Since then they&#8217;ve created great relationships and received many endorsements, so we couldn&#8217;t help but be curious about what comes next and what they&#8217;ve been creating.

Boundaries continue to be pushed, and simplicity and experimentation stand as hallmarks of Artefatto design studio’s work as they tell stories through texture and form. By exploring new techniques and manufacturing possibilities, their constantly evolving combinations of Italian elegance and English eclecticism make their work timeless yet unexpected.

In January, in collaboration with the local artisans of Grottaglie, Artefatto established a design course with an element in ceramics at a school in Puglia. In early March they held a solo exhibition

High-end custom pieces reside alongside budget-friendly elements making the contemporary interior feel welcoming and livable.

IKEA cabinets were upgraded with site-fabricated white and gray painted doors for a bold, graphic look.

The dining table is situated in front of a sky blue wall which fronts the powder room behind it.

The powder room features Calico Wallpaper’s bold Night pattern which completely transforms the tiny space.

The same IKEA cabinets are used in the living room with walnut cabinetry mixed throughout for a custom, built-in feel.

The original leaded glass doors were repurposed and hung on new cabinets on either side of the fireplace.

The original stairs remain with a more opened up second floor cutout to let more natural light through from the skylight

The house, designed by <a href="http://salab.org/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">SA lab</a>, gives anyone needing some alone time or someone cooking a cozy spot to relax when the temperatures are dipping. During the summer, the doors can be opened up and one can enjoy the front terrace.

The oval design of FLEXSE keeps the footprint to a minimum while maximizing usable indoor space. This first prototype was designed as a BBQ hut, but the module can be used in a bunch of different ways, including as a guest house, office, sauna, or tiny house. Both the interior and exterior can be customized to suit each client’s needs.

FLEXSE is easily assembled onsite with parts made from 100% recyclable materials. It can be placed on various types of

                                We would all like to think that creativity knows no bounds, but the truth is that those boundaries can sometimes be difficult to escape. What would happen if we truly explored wide open creative freedom? One answer is <a href="https://studioegallery.net/Solids-and-Voids-exhibition-1"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Solids and Voids | An Exploration of Boundaries</a> – a collection of 2D and 3D abstractions with works by <a href="https://fruitsuper.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">fruitsuper</a> studio owners Sallyann Corn and Joe Kent with contributions by designer Gabriel Stromberg. The exhibit was designed to give form to the unknown and simply celebrate the freedom of creativity.

But where our socks now reside rolled neatly in rows inside our dresser drawers and our 1920s-era closets have been culled to only store beloved essentials, my desk drawer continued to anguish in a tangle of cords and cables that definitely did not spark anything remotely joyful. Perhaps what we&#8217;ve always needed is a bento box – the traditional compartmentalized Japanese meal storage system – but one outfitted for tech accessories rather than lunch.

Each compartment has its own lid: the bottom lid holds two extra Apple Watchbands and the top lid holds the Apple Pencil.
