The Infinity London pool project was designed by specialist studio Compass Pools and promises to be the most beautiful pool in the world.
Although the start of its construction has yet to be approved, the design of this pharaonic work is already on the lips of many and everyone is looking forward to it becoming reality.
The Infinity London will be the first swimming pool with a 360° view of the whole city. Basically, imagine the top of a hollow skyscraper, covered by a pool made entirely of cast acrylic containing 600,000 liters of water.
Now, the question arises, how do you access it?
Since the team of architects did not want to ruin the exterior appearance with a staircase, they decided to propose for this project the same mechanism used to enter and exit the submarines. The Infinity London will be accessed from below, via a spiral staircase leading to a trapdoor, so if you’re afraid to put your head under the water maybe not for you.
His name is Behzad Nohoseini and you will surely have seen some of his graphics flipping through Instagram in lost time. His works are simple and minimal, and in the end, what stands out is the idea behind them.
We present two series of his artworks that have made us crazy and that have a lowest common denominator, the cinema. In the first, Film Director, Behzad transforms the filmography of some of the most famous directors into a melodic line. The second, IMDB, plays with the graphics of the dvds, with their covers and with the titles of the films and series that are distorted and redrawn.
In King’s Road, one of the main streets in London’s Chelsea district, the Humble Pizza has just opened, completely redesigned by the design studio Child Studio.
The team of designers, led by Chieh Huang and Alexey Kostikov, based the entire project on a single final objective, that of modernizing the classic London cafés, but without forgetting their history and importance.
These places, known as Formica Cafes or Greasy Spoon, were the bars and clubs frequented by the workers who began to depopulate the British capital in the 1950s and helped to spread the culture of coffee.
The designers of the Child Studio decided to maintain the original structure, both externally and internally, but giving a pop touch that lately is very fashionable, namely to choose for the surfaces, tables, sofas, walls, door and even the small details of a bright and welcoming pastel pink hue.
This contemporary style is perfectly combined with the gastronomic choice that the Humble Pizza offers, i.e. an entire menu of vegan pizzas.
It’s worth saying, the tradition is tinged with pink.
Every art form reflects the historical period in which it was born and the works of art director and motion designer Emre Önol are the perfect mirror of our times.
First of all, we are talking about a multimedia art that manifests itself in the form of short videos made entirely in digital and 3D. Then, if in 1800 the works of art were officially presented to the company in galleries or art schools, today the best stage for new digital artists is Instagram.
So, if you take a tour of Emre Önol’s profile you will find yourself in a world that may seem real, but is only a hypnotic illusion. As soon as you get to know his works, you can’t help but look at them all. You will see the collapse of pharaonic bottles of sand Coca-Cola, the invasion of a huge snake on his subway train or an injection of Smarties.
The PURO hotel group, together with ASW Architekci and Conran and Partners, have designed their last property in Poland called PURO Hotel Kraków Kazimierz. The hotel’s design concept is “Bohemian Modern”, which combines the energy, history, authenticity and artistic culture of the place, the brand’s passion for contemporary art, designer furniture and cutting-edge hospitality.
After Krakow and Palma de Mallorca, the group chose the Polish city of Lódź as its new location, which owes its fame to its experience in the textile industry and to being the first country to have a cinema and a dedicated State School. And it is on these two interesting peculiarities that PURO has told this story through the design of vibrant and colorful environments, also building an old-fashioned cinema with weekly programming inside.
The hotel is located in front of the sumptuous Poznański Palace and in Manufaktura, the first in neo-baroque style, the second is an industrial complex in red bricks – the cultural and industrial history of the city is literally reflected in the glass facade of the hotel. Based on this, the interior design – designed by SUPERFUTURE, London’s multidisciplinary design agency – also reflects the same concept of aesthetics, with retro and contemporary references combined with a post-industrial chic.
Among the works of art, which we mentioned earlier, we can admire art photographs, posters of old films and contemporary paintings. We are therefore witnessing a show that is more unique than rare and among the works, a large film mural of the graphic designers Illcat and Maciej Polak welcomes guests at the top of the staircase. Smaller but equally striking are the illustrations that Ola Niepsuj and Bartosz Kosowski created for the 130 rooms of the hotel, inspired by the famous pioneers of avant-garde art of Łódź, Katarzyna Kobro and Władysław Strzemiński, and the contemporary kilims and hand-woven tapestries of the local studio Tartaruga that animate the seven suites of the hotel.
In addition to a treat for the eyes, the two restaurants will also offer a treat for the palate with Biotiful Healthy Snack Lab and Miska Gastro Bowls. The former offers a range of healthy breakfasts, juices and beers, while the latter serves bowls of organic ingredients mixed with a touch of Thai taste. <And for body care, there’s Prisma Spa, which offers a wide range of relaxing, invigorating and cosmetic treatments, and the top-floor fitness suite is ideal for yoga classes.
At the end of the day, whether you’ve spent working or simply admiring the beauty of the city, guests can go to the Spirit Bar on the roof to take advantage of the beautiful view of the historic Poznański Palace and relax while sipping their favorite cocktail. What more could you ask for?
