The following collection of tables and chairs will change your view upon wood’s power and aspect when illuminated in this special manner. Talk about vision, heh? Avanzini Group definitely knows how to capture attention and make you drop jaw. The collection you’re seeing is called Bright Wood’s Collection by Giancarlo Zema and are currently on display at the Design in Nature exhibition in the Triennale Design Museum as part of the Milan Furniture Fair.
This uber collection was discovered at Milan Design Week, and we felt in love with the unique aesthetic that’s equal parts alien nation and woodland tranquility. These radiant pieces, made from wood and natural resin strips offer a vision of futuristic style as they glow in the dark.
Despite the mix of the existing concrete structure with the new additions and the complex inner core (dubbed the “showcase”), the exterior of the building is read as a whole. The structural “X” of the glass panels on the facade break the monotony of the box on the outside, contrasting with the mirror like finish of the volume on top.
The “showcase” fills the central void with a mirror finish that turns the volume into a sculpture (as seen on the photos and on the showcase elevations below), while housing different programs that benefit from the arrange of the boxes, such as the auditorium, meeting rooms and showrooms.
Efrain E. Velez,is an architect and designer from Austin, Texas and this is the O-Lithas collection of cast concrete furniture he has created.
I found this on the Contemporist website in furniture. I love concrete as a material for furniture, actually I’ve wanted to start a business with this, but that remained at the stage of concept and sketches. Anyway, this collection is awesome, and if you love modernism, than this has the perfect lines for you. I know, the house in the background is brilliant, and yes, I will give you details about it after the pictures, aight?
German Architecture Studio Aisslinger, comes with a new modular housing prototype, sustainable and transportable. The low energy house, named ‘Fincube’, is comprised of thin horizontal “ledges” of locally grown wood that wrap the slightly bulging form.
You can only find this concept cool and interesting, although made out with simple lines and shapes.
What is actually an interesting touch is the second facade layer, because it provides privacy for the inhabitants and fuses the man-made structure with its natural surroundings. The home provides 47 sqm of living space with a minimal CO2 footprint, and can also be easily dismantled and rebuilt on a different site.
The supporting structure is made of local larch and the interior is a combination of larch and stone-pine. Organized in a helical structure, the entrance area blends into a generous open kitchen with an adjacent living space, and around the corner rests the bedroom.
