Herreros Arquitectos just sent us their recent project for a mixed-use building in Casablanca, Morocco. Resulting from a series of urban, spatial, formal and sustainable variables, the project–which includes housing, commercial and athletic spaces–is characterized by a permeable facade that directly responds to the climate. The repeated decorative element is a reinterpretation of a traditional geometric code that is common to the region. The project was featured in the Moroccan Pav

Designed for Seletti by Alessandro Zambelli, Woodspot is a wooden table lamp with one unusual profile. At first glance I thought it resembled a shoe that Lady Gaga might wear, but it’s actually a lamp inspired by Magritte’s “The Empire of Light”, a piece that’s all about light and its power. The lamp stays in place with the help of the A-frame like design that keeps it balanced between its base and the shade. The lampshade has one edge that rests on the

“What better way to spread the gospel of design than to liberate it from its brick-and-mortar foundations and take it on the road?” This is the idea behind Circus for Construction - a competition-winning proposal to transform a semi-truck into a traveling exhibition space for art and architecture.

Tommaso Caldera set out to reinterpret the classic workshop lamp. You know, those industrial looking lamps with the metal cages you spot in workshops? Well, the TULL lamp, designed for Incipit, is a much more refined version with a spun aluminum shell for the diffuser and curved steel wire for the cage, removing the industrial and bringing in the elegant for a domestic setting. The cage acts as a sculptural detail, instead of as a shield to protect the bulb. Imagine the shadows the c

Let’s see these modern T house construction pictures byMarc Topilsky, and feel how the modern construction can be smoothly combine with the simple decoration. The simple decoration can be seen from the front line look of this house that completed with the outdoor swimming pool décor. Other space from this house was the play ground for kids. This outdoor kids ground was completed with several kids toys that will help them to increase their ability in both kinesthetic and sport. Furthermore, thi

Australia’s new pavilion for the 2015 Venice Art Biennale will be, in the words of featured artist Fiona Hall, “a minefield of madness, badness, and sadness in equal measure.” Designed by firm Denton Corker Marshall, (who also designed the Stonehenge Visitor Centre), the project will replace the 25 year old temporary pavilion designed by Phillip Cox and will be the first building constructed on the Giardini in two decades.  The pavilion itself is simple in concept: a double-layered block,
