Lomocubes Residential by MPA Architetti

Lomocubes is a new innovative and sophisticated residential project by MPA Architetti, located in Lugano and commissioned by the entrepreneur Alessandro Lo Monaco. Lomocubes is a luxurious and high profile condominium that overlooks the Lugano lakeshores. It is a groundbreaking architectural project that marks a new frontier in residential building construction. Finished in July 2013, Lomocubes synthesizes the best relationship between interior and exterior spaces, giving from the living room of each unit a wonderful view on the lake. A texture-in-motion built with a rigorous and wise use of materials leads to a seductive aesthetic result established on the succession between full and empty spaces, transparency and opacity.

Bachelor Apartment by FC Studio in Sao Paolo, Brazil

FC studio have finished the renovation of ‘Maranhao apartment’ in sao paolo, brazil. according to the architects, the biggest challenge of the project was the conversion of a family apartment into a residence that fits the needs of a young, single advertiser, while retrofitting securities provided by the original structure. therefore, the work respects the memories of the space by exposing its existing components and materials with the addition of contemporary design elements. The living room, home theater, and dining table have become part of a unified and continuous space through the demolition of walls and removal of the toilet that once disrupted the openness of the floorplan. This connects to the kitchen where the construction of the old form has been reutilized to arrange a wine rack and storage cabinets. Concrete shelves have been crafted along fenestrated walls that specifically emphasize the horizontality of the public areas and serve as a shield for pieces of art. Meanwhile, a large gallery of corten steel that wraps around a corner from the television to the lounge demarcates between social and intimate programs, camouflaging access that is created through a pivoting door to the master bedroom. these characteristics combine to display a sober color palette that contrasts and highlights the interior furnishings.

Steel Vessels by Max Lipsey

‘Steel Vessel’ by Netherlands-based designer Max Lipsey brings the weight and quality of a steel industrial part into a home environment.

The form is re-purposed from a ‘vessel head’, a part produced for pressurized gas tanks. It’s a deep drawn, 4mm steel piece, made using an enormous press and tooling. Normally, producing such a part would be beyond the bounds of a small studio scale, but re-purposing the parts from an existing industry alllows them to be made affordably.

While the curve of the bowl originally had the purpose of distributing pressures evenly in the tank, the soft, attractive shape makes it a perfect vessel for objects around the house. The light, welded wire support, is designed to compliment and support the vessel head.

Steel Vessels are coated with a two layer, extra matte, powder coat, and lightly engraved in the basin of the vessel.

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.
