Cute Rugs by Permafrost Studio

These two cute rugs designed by Norwegian company Permafrost Studio .
JD
The JD rug offers a snapshot of life in rural Scandinavia. Heavy machinery has long since replaced the labor of farm animals, leaving its trademark tracks in the grass and mud. On the outskirts of civilization, reading such tracks is a vital skill.


Giant Leap
40 years after man made his first impressions on the dusty lunar surface, we release the Giant Leap rug through our Stories by Permafrost collection. We would like to think of it as a tiny tribute to an enormous achievement.

Double High House in Nanaimo, Canada by Checkwitch Poiron Architects

Checkwitch Poiron Architects have designed the Double High House in Nanaimo, BC, Canada.The Double High house is an elegant and efficient re-interpretation of the typical suburban site plan. The slender form is positioned against the long north edge of the site in order to maximize the solar exposure to the south. A 22 foot south facing sliding door system connects the main living space with the wooden deck and landscape, blurring the line between interior and exterior. The floorplan is a connected flow of open and overlapping spaces. In addition to the passive solar scheme, further efficiency is achieved through in-floor radiant hydronic heating, natural ventilation, a heat recovery ventilator and an efficient lighting design.

Sophie Wall Clock by Layla Mehdi Pour

When our feelings change, it also changes the perception we have of time. Layla Mehdi Pour designs a wall clock, consisting of two overlapping surfaces with twelve lines each. The lower dial is attached to the clock mechanism, but the upper one can easily rotated: this way you can get unexpected plays of shadows and different configurations of the object, which can be changed at any time.

Sophie, named after the sweet child of Hayao Miyazaki’s cartoon Howl’s Moving Castle, who changes appearance according to her feelings, is perfectly in line with the designer’s ironic and cheerful spirit. It is available in a wide variety of colors, all bright and vivid.

Pestrin Pendant Lighting by Nicolò Zavagno

Pestrin,pendant light by Venice-based young designer  Nicolò Zavagno whose name derives from the Venetian dialect indicating the place where milk used to be distributed. The shape of the lamp remembers in fact the container used to carry the milk from the “pestrin” back to the house. The use of porcelain and wood takes back to ancient traditions that melt with a minimal and contemporary design whose finish in different colors, diffuses warmth in your environments.

David Raffoul has designed Kangaroo, a clock with a pocket for Fabrica. This clock is a three dimensional image of the pocket of a Kangaroo.

Herringbone House in London by Atelier Chanchan

Redesigned by Atelier Chanchan, the Herringbone House is situated on a quaint street on the borders of Islington and Hackney in London, United Kingdom.
The Herringbone House is on a quaint street on the borders of Islington and Hackney, sitting amongst a cute row of Victorian Terraces, a railway tavern and the small local stone and Gothic church (St Jude and St Pauls). Just away from the hubbub of Kingsland Road, it is neatly packed onto an awkward wedge-shaped site which used to play host to a garage / out-building / storage shed.

The house comprises of two volumes: a gable-ended volume which is thrust to the very front of the site facing the street, and a set back rectangular volume, which both co-join into one space as the site narrows towards the rear. (see image 2) The light shade of herringbone brickwork, articulates the houses’ two volumes and frames the picture windows setting the house apart from the other buildings on the street.

At both ends of the house two walled courtyard spaces bring natural light and air in to the space. Inside, the large glazed openings flood the building with natural light; enhanced by the light material palette of limed wood, white matt marble and pearl coloured brick and the open layout enables views and light to flood through the length of house. The rooms then peel back, through pivoting floor-to-ceiling windows, onto private, walled courtyard garden ‘rooms’ reflecting the inspiration Zoe has also drawn from inward-looking Chinese courtyard house typologies or ‘Siheyuan’.
