One of the most common monikers found in the home construction industry is “Custom Homes”. The message is simple: Let me build you the house that you want, not some cookie-cutter thing that looks like everything else in the neighborhood.
And that appeals to us, because we are all unique individuals with specific tastes that probably don’t make a perfect match with anyone else’s. From that perspective, we automatically rule out any home that appears to be too similar to others. Unique homes are king.

POT.PURRI is a mixture or collection of miscellaneous or diverse items. A combination of incongruous things.
For us it is a collection of small, modular containers, designed with some basic parts that through various materials and combinations can construct more than 50 unique objects with different shapes and capacities, from lamps to tableware.
Inspired by the ambition of ‘cutting distance’ between design and material and ‘fluctuating shapes’ as our expression of contemporary deisgn, the project is cultivated around the concept of modularity and the customization.
This new approach towards the flexibility of the pieces fusion with the constant possibility of upgrading or changing, focuses at a wide spectrum of new users.
The project allows the user to mix and match shapes, materials and colors. We shaped the concept based on modular elements, with different dimensions and diameters that can be mutually paired and combined consequently, providing unlimited possibilities.

Modern concrete painting and sculpture studio designed in 2011 by Savioz Fabrizzi Architecte located in Chamoson, Switzerland.
“The client wanted a painting and sculpture studio of around fifty square metres as an extension to the existing house and studio situated just a few metres away from the land to be used for the new structure.
The narrowness of the plot and local regulations considerably affected the form of the building, which stretches out narrowly along the length of the meadow. Its unusual shape allowed the door and window openings to be placed to give a focus on the valley and on the mountains opposite. Outside, the studio extends over a terrace that is related to its surroundings and creates a visual connection with the existing house. Other rooms, such as the wood store in the basement and the small garden storage area, were added as the project developed. The access points to the building were positioned along the length of the steeply-sloping ground so that it was altered as little as possible. the same applied to the roof, which likewise follows the incline of the plot.

What a great way to add some fun and drama to your boring walls. This bold coat rack was designed by Italian company Insilvis.
Product Description : A snake is a sinuous line that twists and turns throughout the space. It exits from the cavities of the earth, of which it guards the primordial energies, raising itself towards the light of the life and the knowledge. The transformation of its skin expresses the regenerative ability of the vital processes, within a cyclic path that joins the opposites. The debunked image of a snake, unforeseeable and rich of evocative references, belongs by now serenely to our visual landscape. The lithe profile becomes a structure for hanging clothing and handbags: it is almost a basic scribble.
