                                Designed by a group of young international designers from <a href="http://www.fabrica.it/?lang=en_us" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Fabrica Research Center</a> in Italy for <a href="http://pleasedonotenter.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">PLEASE DO NOT ENTER</a>, Da Vetro is a limited edition glass collection of vases, carafes and containers that are inspired by human gestures, postures and scale.
There are eight designs in the collection, all of which are hand-blown in Italy by glass blower Massimo Lunardon. Only a limited edition of 30 pieces are made for each design. 308 s by Lukas Valiauga from Lithuania has a futuristic, space-inspired shape. It’s actually a sand timer that counts down to a Martian five minutes, which is 2.8% longer than Earth minutes. Slipped My Mind by Elena Bompani from Italy has a lower figure that’s inspired by the shape of a bust while the handle is inspired by the shape of a face, alluding to the idea that memories, like flowers, can be short and fleeting.

He enjoys a good challenge, tries to inject emotion into everything he makes and really just wants a year off – Design Milk caught up with him to find out more&#8230;
What’s the most important thing to know about you? Haha, good question! I think I’d prefer to let others be the judge of that. Tell me about your childhood – what’s your earliest memory of doing something creative? Drawing – I’ve always done it, just doodling away, and still do. It’s a wonderful feeling to just let go and see what streams from your unconsciousness onto the paper. What did you study? I studied design in Copenhagen and wasn’t really happy with my school, but we were a bunch of guys having a good time creating our own space. That was really rewarding, and

                                Bangkok is one of those cities where your senses are instantly overloaded upon arrival. The city is in non-stop motion, the heat at times is unforgiving, and the traffic looks so dangerously haphazard that it makes you hesitate to cross any road, let alone travel around. With a population of almost 10-million, where you’re almost always shoulder-to-shoulder at all times, it can make you want to grab a cold Thai-tea-in-a-bag and call it a day before 11am. However, if you take a moment to focus and make peace with the city’s intense and sprawling nature, you’ll find that Bangkok is a thriving, vibrant city with an incredible history and fast-growing modern culture. With hidden galleries, one-of-a-kind shops, and unforgettable food (like $1 pad thai!), you’ll quickly get over your initial sensory shock after realizing all that Bangkok has to offer. Here’s how I would take on Thailand’s capital.

The home was first built in the late 1940s, and by removing the intermediary support element, the architects were able to open the rear facade onto the garden with a 24-foot sliding bay window.
Above the outdoor terrace is a metal trellis awning that provides heat protection from the sun into the kitchen and dining room, which are directly adjacent to the outdoor space. The architects wanted to open up the space in order to revitalize the relationship between the various programs and create a visual link between each one. A perforated mobile steel wall provides flexible privacy between the living room and family room. In addition, a living wall was utilized in order to create a substantial green presence indoors. Upstairs, this green presence can be enjoyed from the open-plan office.

                                If you’re traveling to Rio de Janeiro, chances are you’ve already carved out some beach time into the itinerary.

The North Rim collection has a very muted and earthy aesthetic, inspired by Venetian lagoons in Italy and the raw textures in the Grand Canyon. Each item is made entirely from raw materials so that every imperfectly perfect mark, scratch or burn helps to tell a story. The pop-up showroom will also serve as a platform for Nodari and Capurso to showcase their recent works with brands including Lamborghini, Riva 1920 and Potocco. To visit the North Rim pop-up showroom, visit 611 La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069.

                                If you&#8217;ve ever worked in an office or had to seek office furniture out to purchase, you probably remember just how generic (and boring) the choices can be. Many brands just focus on the utilitarian aspect of contract furniture but luckily there are companies like <a href="http://heartwork.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Heartwork</a> that are changing the game.
The New York based Heartwork launched in 2012 filling a void in the workplace for pieces that were not only functional, but designed well and available in colors other than beige and light gray. The products are made from fully welded, commercial grade 18 gauge steel that brings industrial durability, and combined with their powder coated finishes in happy colors, you have a collection of furniture that would make it impossible to be sad while working. From desks, lockers, file cabinets, credenzas, shelves, storage cabinets, chairs, and accessories, Heartwork designs and makes it all, leaving no excuses for inefficient

                                The phenomenon of &#8220;model turned actor&#8221; is so prevalent, it has its own acronym: MTA. Less common is the route from modeling into furniture design, but that&#8217;s the path Danish model and TV host <a href="http://emilthorup.dk/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Emil Thorup</a> has taken – one that has led him not only into designing furniture but also into architecture, interior design and art sales. Design Milk caught up with him to find out more&#8230;
What’s the most important thing to know about you? Not the most important thing, but the most peculiar thing is probably that I used to be a fairly successful TV host, and spent my days experimenting on my own body in the interest of the common man. I worked on the biggest network we have, which is the public broadcasting network – and amongst other things, I ‘gave birth’ and had a nipple pierced. Have you always been interested in design? Yes,

While the pieces are designed for the outdoors, they&#8217;d work equally well inside the home as well.
The Seam chairs are made in such a way that’s not too different from tailoring a piece of clothing, with its “seam” detail making up the spine. Working with sheet metal, the chairs are formed by cutting, folding, and joining the material, much like you would a piece of fabric, bringing a fresh approach to Tait’s line which includes their signature wire chairs. Seam includes a dining chair, stacking chair, bar stool, dining table, café table, and bar table, all available in a palette of rich colors that reference Australia’s coastlines, terrains, and flora. Besides being a distinct design detail, the opening below the seam

                                In <a href="http://www.cleverpodcast.com/blog/ep-53-nika-zupanc"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">this episode</a>, Amy and Jaime talk to product designer and installation artist, Nika Zupanc, who has always had a strong emotional reaction to furniture, both positive and negative. Born and raised in former Yugoslavia, she was attracted at a young age to books, cinema and art and that sense of drama and narrative shows up in her work. Her path to design is a pretty straight line; determined, focused and passionate, punctuated by a rebellious use of pink, and a fierce protectiveness of her creativity through time spent in nature and the gym.

The date space wasn’t working for the couple who were looking for a more contemporary feel that was both spacious and energy efficient. The interior, which spans three floors, received a full renovation that included taking an unused storage room and turning it into a rooftop room with an outdoor terrace. To keep costs down, they used reasonably priced materials while filling in design-focused details for added value. The new rooftop space can be used for most anything, like a guest suite, lounge, or study, and its oak and ash design was inspired by canal boats in the water. Three
