Future Craft 3D by Adidas

"Futurecraft 3D is a prototype and a statement of intent," says Adidas executive board member Eric Liedtke. "We have used a one-of-its-kind combination of process and material in an entirely new way... Our 3D-printed midsole not only allows us to make a great running shoe, but also to use performance data to drive truly bespoke experiences, meeting the needs of any athlete."

That is a cusomization which shows the way we are probably going to produce our clothes and shoes in the not so distant future - what do you think of such a possibility?

Bathtub on the stage

With all the details wel-thought : "In the bathroom not only the tub by Drummonds, but also the small vintage table by Meret Oppenheim and Simon Gavina stands on claws. The washstand (right) was designed by Jaime Hayon for Bisazza, the mirrored unit opposite (with velvet stool by Azucena) was made in Murano. Fittings by Vola, Fornasetti wallpaper by Cole & Son, hand-trimmed silk curtain by Hoyer & Kast."
How do you like the idea? 


‘The Barnhouse interiors by Kate Moss’

Fashion and interior design have a lot in common, as my regular readers have seen in many posts on this blog. Now we have another example how a fashion star makes use of her popularity in the field of interior design. Kate Moss has curated the interior design of the Barnhouse,a luxury home located in a new housing development in the Cotswolds, UK.

“John and I became friends through our love for the English countryside (and the pub)…When he told me about the Barnhouse in the middle of the silver birch wood I was intrigued and then excited to become part of the design team. We have created a luxurious haven in the woods, a perfect place to escape with family and friends.”

Kate has restyled the interiors of the Barnhouse, complementing its traditional elegance with a vibrant, retro-glamour vision. To launch her new career Moss plans a lavish party inviting celebrity friends to the bash on October 10.
The mutual influence between fashion and interior design is a stable trend that started several years ago and is  now one of the main trends in interior design.
