Behzad Nohoseini and his graphics

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Design

Not so long ago we talked about Behzad Nohoseini and his series of graphics that transformed and played with the names of the films and their plots. Let’s talk about it again because the latest project published by the Iranian graphic designer on his Instagram profile attracted our attention more than others. 

Behzad takes its cue from the “I’m not a robot” checkbox, the box that sometimes appears to us when we enter a password or sign up for a website. The aim of these boxes is to check that the user is not a machine, but a person in the flesh. Many times, however, a click is not enough. Often we are faced with a question: the system asks us to recognize bicycles, traffic lights, cars in a grid of nine images. 

Behzad Nohoseini recreates exactly these grids, but the questions he asks his followers are closely linked to environmental issues. For example, above a photograph of a polar bear in the middle of dozens of small pieces of melting ice we are asked to select the squares where an iceberg appears. 

For now, this series has only 4 graphics, we hope that Behzad Nohoseini has more in store.

A private house in Scotland is a testimony of different architectural styles

A private house in Scotland is a testimony of different architectural styles

Collater.al Contributors · 3 months ago · Design

The project of Lily Jencks Studio born in a remote area of the countryside in Scotland, among the ruins of an old farmhouse of 18th century, where was built a private apartment that keeps layers of material as evidence of times.

The three main layers correspond to the stone wall, the inside of which is covered with black waterproof rubber, the second is a curved wall system made up of blocks of recycled polystyrene and the inside is covered by a wooden structure with plastic reinforced with wood fiber.
These three layers are a clear reference to different architectural styles and keep different meanings and functions in the various areas of the building.

The existing ruined walls dictate the position for the large windows and doors that overlook the landscape around which soft hills and fields of breeding rise.
For the external facade, the ruined walls that blend perfectly with the opaque black rubber have been preserved, and the original pitched roof has been restored, ensuring consistency with the external context.

A building in Milan decorated by the artist Lucio Fontana

A building in Milan decorated by the artist Lucio Fontana

Collater.al Contributors · 3 months ago · Design

We are in Milan, in the Sant’Ambrogio area, near Cattolica University. In via Lanzone 6 the brothers Gustavo and Vito Latis, both architects,  built a residential architecture between 1949 and 1951 in a plot struck by the WWII bombing in 1943.

The architecture consists of two buildings, with the condominium garden. But the most interesting thing is the loggias and the terraces, whose iron parapets have been decorated by the artist Lucio Fontana, who creates flower vases and decorative ceramics using red, yellow, green and blue colors and with shapes engraved and relief typical of the artist’s work. Maybe you walk in front of it every day and you’ve never noticed it, or maybe you’ve always wondered who made it. Well if you have never been there you must go to enjoy the beauty of this pearl set in the historic center of Milan.

Haus, the 3D printed house to build anywhere

Haus, the 3D printed house to build anywhere

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Design

As well as representing innovation in architecture, Haus is able to make you change the idea you have when you have to buy a house. After all, this is the goal of haus.me, a company that has always tried to offer housing options that are different from the ordinary ones and to which we are accustomed. 

In particular, Haus is a prefabricated house made with a fully sustainable and off-grid 3D print. This means that the house is not connected to the electricity grid, this is possible thanks to a system of solar panels and especially allows easy and fast movement of the entire structure from one place to another. 

The design of Haus is available in three models that can meet any type of request. The first is called mOne and is a one-storey house with a living area of 37 square meters, the second, mTwo, with an area of 74 square meters houses two bedrooms, the third and last, which is called mFour, has an area of 148 square meters and is spread over two floors that house 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. The site haus.me also displays the prices of the different models which are respectively $ 199,999, $ 379,999 and $ 1 million. 

Haus may not be for every budget, but not all homes can be lifted off the ground and moved. Basically, in case you decide to run away from the city and go and live by the sea or in the mountains you should not pack your bags, but simply take them with you.

The Spazio Riviera of the Simple Flair couple

The Spazio Riviera of the Simple Flair couple

Collater.al Contributors · 3 months ago · Design

There’s something fresh and new in town and is Spazio Riviera. The Simple Flair couple opened their first and new creative space in June before the summer. Simona and Riccardo have translated in a physical place all the work that they have done in these ten years of Simple Flair (they founded it in 2009). Everything started from the idea of ​​“a physical space in Milan that was not only ours but a place to share with the creatives that every day we are lucky to meet in our work and personal path”.

But why this name? “Because it’s a word from the Italian vocabulary but able to be communicated abroad; because it wants to remember an imaginary, an informal and concrete reality, which is synonymous of simple and real values; because it gives us a positive thought; because it sounds familiar and we want everyone to feel at home here; because it’s an authentic word, rooted in the memories of many”.

Creative people, are you ready? “Riviera is an informal place, devoted to the non-spectacular, stimulating and light, Italian but international, where design and lifestyle find a meeting point; Riviera conceives simplicity as a point of arrival: in relationships, in the mechanisms of sharing and building collaborations; Riviera was born with a collaborative approach, welcomes and hosts a workspace that does not want to be canonical, where to meet sitting on a sofa or around a table to share ideas and a coffee, animated daily but also with a series of events between exhibitions, talks, events, workshops, pop up spaces; Riviera is a meeting point for creatives with different backgrounds, from design to fashion, from art to photography, with an ever-growing network of smart people, a meeting place for sector pioneers different “.

Well Milan has a new creative hotspot, in the heart of the 5 VIEE area, “a point of arrival and passage for the creative community” that Simona Flacco and Riccardo Crenna always want to keep open “towards new suggestions, new ideas, brought to its inside by the creatives who will animate it “
