Stucked shelves: it’s all about perspectives

Few could disagree that life itself is all about the perspective every individual has on its happenings. Where some see obstacles, others see opportunities. Where some see opportunities, others in fact create them. Some devote their lives into self discovery and full self realization. Others are busy creating a puzzle out of fragments of other people’s lives. Whichever the case, it’s all a matter of perspective. Continue reading

Block: organizing and recycling made easy and fun!

When working with clients in redesigning and decorating their spaces, let it be living ones or working ones, I’m always careful to bring forward the importance and great impact organization and practicality have on beauty. If one wishes to live in a beautiful space, the need to start from these points is primary. Purchasing and adding pretty objects to our abodes comes long after we have dealt with less appealing matters such as for example, well… waste, rubbish or else garbage.

In the best of cases, we’ll chose practical and neat looking garbage bins, much like the Qualy Block, where we’ll separate and store all our households waste, till transported outside our homes and working places. Continue reading

ShelfLamp: facing the economic crisis, shelf by shelf

26 year old Italian designer William Raffredi certainly knows how to adjust to the difficult times of crises his own country as much as many others all around Europe and around the world are facing. To conceive and to create great design is one thing. To be able to do so by using low cost materials, easily found everywhere is taking design a step further and much more close to the needs of current societies.

Horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines paired together with curves, the three different designs of shelves William has brilliantly come up with are simple constructions made of flat wooden boards, lengths of electrical cable, light bulbs and some light fixtures. Continue reading

Street multi unit: how many houses in your private… neighborhood?

Have you been also drawing these typical houses consisting of a square for the “body” and a triangle for the roof when you were children? Most probably you have and even more probably you have adored them, correct? As for myself, even today I cannot resist the cuteness of a logo featuring this darling combination of shapes standing for a house.

Now, let’s move our imagination forward a bit. Make a three dimensional design of your favorite childhood’s house, put it on a frame to lift it up on a higher level and use it to store books, magazines or even plants. Brilliant? Ingenious while so cute? Yes, indeed! Continue reading

Kammerdiener him & her: a modern approach to servants?

Anything that pays respect to the union of female and male leaves me with a sense of unity, calm and completion. Take this simple yet wonderus concept, combine it with effortless, sleek design and my heart has been forever won.

What am talking about? The “him” and “her” versions of Stadtnomaden valets designed by Linda Altmann. Kammerdiener is the German word for “Valet”, which means nothing else but male servant. The company has taken the whole concept a step away by producing the same design, with slight differences in the shape of the arms edges. The male and female version of them. Continue reading
