Facella by Oliver Schick for DUA

 

Facella is inspired by historical portable lanterns, transposed due to its reduced and strong graphical shape into contemporary times. The shade is made of mouth blown opal glass, whose matte surface makes a smooth light scattering. High grade types of leather with German origin are used for the encasement with the bracket. They are handcrafted in traditional saddlery and bag-maker techniques and all seams are handsewn.

Material: leather, opal glass

X-Ray table

 

Infinum office design was inspired by superheros and their supernatural powers. The office conference room design was influenced by x-ray vision. The challenge was to achieve a table, made from a heavy and rough metal, appear translucent and futuristic. Brigada used thin metal profiles coated in a characteristic, X-ray bluish color, and glass for the table plate. To maintain specific tech needs, power outlets and network lines are discreetly integrated into the table.

Designer: Brigada (Croatia)
Inspired By: X-ray vision

SASKIA DIEZ interview

Firstly, can you tell me a little about yourself? How would you define what you do? I am a designer. I create jewellery, mostly for my own label, Saskia Diez.
What is your definition of beauty? Where do you seek to find it, or how to you aim to create it? Beauty has a lot to do with your attitude. It can be found everywhere. To create beauty, a kind of coherence is needed. A harmony. A reality. A concentration.
What does jewellery mean to you? Jewellery is decoration, for sure. It can [take] an outfit into any direction. But it also can secure me, be my company. It is a means of expression. It shows that I care about myself, it makes me feel more beautiful. Jewellery is something very intimate. How does it lay on the skin and on the body? What does it do with you and how does it change when it moves, how do you feel with it?
Can you tell me about the production process? Where do you source materials or products? We work together with a handful of goldsmiths in and around Munich, in Pforzheim and Werne. Everything is very local. We know everybody that is producing for us. And the gold and silver we use are mainly from recycled materials.
Who is the archetypal Saskia Diez woman? Do you keep a certain individual in mind when designing? The typical Saskia Diez woman may be me. At least I always start with myself. I do not have a certain target woman in mind. Even if I do not wear everything that I create, I try everything on me, I take [myself] as a reference. But I think my pieces suit a lot of different women, and I think that these are proud, independent, loving, sensible, strong, [and] beautiful in various aspects.

Words: Sophie Flecknoe from a conversation for Hall of Furs.

Concrete by PHAIDON

 

Concrete takes a fresh look at the world’s most versatile and abundant building material. Collating fascinating and beautiful concrete buildings by some of the most celebrated architects of the last century, it features familiar projects from Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright alongside work from some of the leading lights of contemporary architecture including Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, and many lesser-known newcomers. Arranged to promote comparison and discussion, the selected projects take the reader on a global tour of inspiring and intriguing structures: a German skatepark sits beside an Italian rooftop test track, a Japanese crematorium alongside a Portuguese swimming pool and a Brazilian government building next to a Chinese opera house. An essay by Leonard Koren, author of the best-selling Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, offers an evocative and perceptive view of concrete through the author’s experience of studying architecture in California and living in Tokyo.
