This geometric concrete stool goes by the name HOCKER HEINRICH. The stool gets its name from the German playwright Heinrich von Kleist (1777–1811). The first edition of the stool has been appointed to the permanent collection at Kleist-Museum in Frankfurt (Oder). The stool was designed by Panatom with Matthias Froböse. These are such great little sculptures. My mind is racing with the possibilities if you had several. They look like they come in different shades of gray. I would love to have one in black concrete.
Brent Comber is a wood artist that make some beautiful furniture with a massive presence. Some of his pieces carry a feel of mass and establish themselves in a room while some of his furniture is elegant and strongly proportioned. I love the texture or shattered wall that is happening in the one picture. The black massive stumps sitting in a forest are such an amazing spectacle. Make sure to visit his site to look through this talented mans body of work.
The Micasa showroom in Sao Paulo Brazil not only contains amazing art and furniture but the structure itself is a masterpiece. I can appreciate a store that can create beautiful display rooms not only for their potential customers but for catalogues as well. Maybe they are just a bunch of pages full of eye candy but that is what most of us like anyway. The buildings were designed by Marcio Kogan.
Design by Norm Architects describes their approach to everything not just interiors and structures. Norm Architects has a pretty nice lineup of products that have a minimal modern approach capping it off with functionality. The STAND and FELT bathroom lines remind me of the architectural pottery with their iron or wood cradles. The flip around side tables are nice as well. These are only a few pieces that caught my eye, there are plenty more to look at on their site.
The Prouvé RAW: Office Edition is a collaboration between G-Star RAW and Vitra. This news has been circulating around the web, so if you haven’t seen it or heard about it,here is your chance. ” The project was initiated as custom pieces to furnish G-Star’s new headquarters in Amsterdam – designed by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) and built in 2014.” I was also looking to start a conversation about re issuing pieces like this. How do you feel about limited re editions of classic designs? Leave them be or go all willy nilly and have at it?
Antoni Arola has an amazing and strongly diverse portfolio. His design includes interiors, lighting, packing and other expressions of art. It is obvious that was taken with one lighting design in particular. The Flamingo lighting is stunning to look at and appears as though there are quite a few different combinations. UFOs met jelly fish but the ambient light is stunning. My background is graphic design so I really appreciate the package design as well.
