Cork Furniture - "a new creation from the fires was born"

 I have always liked cork as a material in interior design. I even have a project with cork tiles in the kitchen and livingroom of a client. But this story from Yellow Trace by By Erin Christie  inspired me further. All pieces from french designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance’s furniture collection made of discarded burnt cork have beautiful sculptural forms:






They are from the second installment for Made in Situ

The designed pieces are the fruits of my adventures, explorations of geological and biological textures, patterns, materials and their related techniques. Above all, my stimulation comes from human knowledge and sensitivity, linking to and embedded in each specific place.” Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance

Special Tiles - Din by Konstantin Grcic

Completely in his specific minimalistic industrial style, but with numersous possibilities for combinations and perfect detailing, the new Din collection by Konstantin Grcic for Mutina are great for interior designers and architects. DIN by Konstantin Grcic develops into the third dimension!

Get some inspiration:

Just by looking at the photos each professional interior designer and architect can see the beautiful new possibilities that this collection allows!

SUPERSALONE Special Edition 2021 Press Conference

The press conference about the coming in September Salone del Mobile just finished. It was very interesting and informative! The 60th Salone will be innovative with different identity. Stefano Boeri,  the curator of this year's Salone del Mobile, presented the main concept. 



It seems there will be a complete change of scenery -  a different layout with no boots. The area will look like a small town with a lot of greenery and pavillions and open to the public as well as to professionals.The proposed format is that of a large design library. One of the main themes will be the possibility to re-use most of the elements in the exhibitions.

Then some of the co-designers presented the ideas in more details:

Andrea Caputo said "we used the linear meter logic. A sequnce of walls and vertical surfaces will be used."


Maria Kristina talked about 'people curating'  - "there will be three categories of series of meetings - lectures, talks, conversations"

Giorgo Dona' presented the "new unique public spaces; spaces about the history of design and an area dedicated to the future".


Lucas Wegwerth talked about reuse,"to make possible that everything is reused in different contexts, modular kits; sharing materials rather than disposing them".

Aniina Coyvu curator presented "The lost graduation show - Class of 2020/2021" - one large exhibition of design schools and the best graduation projects.

One of the keywords is TOGATHERNESS said Stefano Boeri when closing the press conference.

We are all looking forward to this quite different SUPERSALONE!
