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

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

Trashcan mug: a cup of office cleanness

Keeping a work surface clear and clean seems vital to my creativity and work pace, since typing on a keyboard and looking at a screen is an essential part of my job. Teas accompanied with mini snacks are often the case throughout a whole day and they sometimes do take place on the spot.

Can I also have a cup of cleanness to go with my cup of tea please? Yes? Wonderful. Cause I’d like to be able to separate the tea bag from the chocolate’s pretty wrapping, even before they reach the official recycling station, stylishly and discretely finding place in our kitchen down stairs. Continue reading


Pearl Bookcase: A Jewel For Any Open Space

The popularity of open plan living is definitely not declining – it seems people want it more and more. Especially those who live in big, busy cities, where open space is quite the luxury. If it’s possible to keep a space free and open, allowing the light to invade and give the space more of an airy feel, most would usually opt for that scenario.

But as nice as this concept seems, it can be challenging to keep the space organized in terms of function and to keep it flowing at the same time. That’s why a bookcase like Pearl from Modloft is a real jewel for any open space. Continue reading
