The iconic 7 series from Fritz Hansen undertakes a brilliant transformation with this new monochrome look. The second photo is from The Home of Fritz Hansen at The Milan Design Week where all the latest news are presented in an amazing ”home” made by stylist Christine Rudolph.
Today the Designweek starts in Milan and I´m so jealous of everyone who has a chance to be there. I´ll have to settle for a coffee from my local café while digging right down in the workload on my desk. Luckily there are plenty of reports from Italy and I found The Fayland table product family from David Chipperfield consisting of a solid wood table, bench and stool. With distinct features and pure use of material it sends a clear design language which are shared aesthetics of e15 and David Chipperfield.
Norm Architects are showing their new bathroom collection in Milan this week. It´s a minimal and beautiful line that they have created for the Italiand brand Ex.t. Love the soft edges and slim metal legs!
A restaurant, a bar and a guesthouse that’s part of Cascina Cuccagna, an 18th-century farm compound in the middle of Milan that’s recently been transformed into a cultural and culinary centre. This place is also home to community gardens, farmers’ markets and eco-friendly events. Don´t miss during Milan Design Week!
Totally fell in love with these collections of vases by a new talent, Anabella Vivas who´s taking a new approach to traditional production methods and existing materials. 100% Sand will be shown in the Lambreta area during the Milan Furniture Fair next week.
I´m off for a few days to celebrate Easter with friends and family – hope you enjoy the holidays, I sure will! Happy, Happy Easter to everyone of you!
Designer Axel Vervoordt and architect Tatsuro Miki used the ancient Japanese aesthetic sense of wabi to create a meditative haven atop The Greenwich Hotel — owned by Robert De Niro and Ira Drukier — in TriBeCa, NY. The top-level penthouse is designed to integrate as much as possible into the nineteenth century industrial neighborhood, using local materials, such as stone and reclaimed wood, providing an authentic feel for its guests and neighbors. Incorporating antique and custom-made fixtures and furnishings, the penthouse includes a large open floor-plan with multi-purpose living spaces, including a separate living room and drawing room, a full sized chef’s kitchen, three fireplaces, two and half bathrooms and three bedrooms, including a master suite. The huge multi-leveled terrace includes lush gardens with wisteriawrapped pergolas, multiple seating and dining areas, a spa pool, a large gas grill, and an outdoor wood-burning fireplace.
