The Jaffa Hotel, modern luxury and 19th-century​ pomp

The Jaffa Hotel, modern luxury and 19th-century​ pomp

Claudia Fuggetti · 11 months ago · Design

The Jaffa Hotel is an interesting combination of modern luxury and 19th-century pomp. The port of Jaffa in Tel Aviv is one of the oldest in the world, the adjacent district is characterized by cobbled streets, a dynamic nightlife and several restaurants where you can eat and relax.

The structure is an exclusive place that offers the opportunity to live a fabulous stay just minutes from the beach, full of style, luxury, and avant-garde.

Within this context, The Jaffa Hotel is born, a unique place of its kind, located within the walls of a nineteenth-century complex that once housed the French Hospital of Jaffa. The project is named after the renowned architects John Pawson and Ramy Gill: the duo has transformed the original structure into a blend of modernity while remaining faithful to the heritage and visual details of the original building.

The Eastwind Hotel, a holiday in the mountains of Catskill

The Eastwind Hotel, a holiday in the mountains of Catskill

Claudia Fuggetti · 11 months ago · Design

The Eastwind Hotel is the result of a structure dating back to 1920 that has been transformed into a holiday resort of Scandinavian inspiration, which has the particularity of having bunkers at its disposal. The hotel is located on Catskill Mountains, in the State of New York and is the debut project of the team composed by Bjorn Boyer, Julija Stoliarova, Daniel Cipriani and John Burnett. As the creative team says:

“We wanted to create a cozy space where you can curl up after a day of hiking or skiing, and just relax”.
 

The structure consists of two main buildings: Bunk House and Hill House, two existing independent structures that have been renovated with the aim of obtaining 16 rooms. In the Bunk House, you will find the hotel reception and the Salon lounge, which feature wooden floors recovered from the original structure of the twenties. The outdoor area is characterized by the presence of bunkers, three micro-cabins with an “A” frame that are intended for those seeking a deeper immersion in nature.

Das Schwarze Haus, a house with glass walls that open onto nature

Das Schwarze Haus, a house with glass walls that open onto nature

Giulia Guido · 11 months ago · Design

Viewed from the outside, the Das Schwarze Haus (The Black House), designed by Buero Wagner studio, doesn’t seem like much, but by approaching it, entering it and studying it from an architectural point of view it turns out to be a masterpiece. 

Its external appearance is so dark that it blends in with the dark green of the surrounding forest, while the interior is light and bright, thanks to the exclusive use of oak wood and sanded concrete. 

The building plays with the volumes, in fact different spaces have been built almost as if they had been stacked on top of each other, both above and below ground level. But the strong point of the Das Schwarze Haus are the two huge French windows on the ground floor that can be opened completely, leaving only two walls for the room and making the surrounding nature part of the building. 

Discover the beauty of Buero Wagner’s project in our gallery.

OFF-WHITE x IKEA, the complete collection with all the details

OFF-WHITE x IKEA, the complete collection with all the details

Claudia Fuggetti · 11 months ago · Design

Since last year’s release of the IKEA x OFF-WHITE collaboration, first with a live streaming video, then with the pop-up store at the Cité de la Mode et du Design in Paris, all the details about the collaboration with Virgil Abloh have now been publicized.

The collection, called MARKERAD, has the great characteristic of being, not only in line with the design by IKEA, but also with the pricing: in fact, the Swedish giant has made public the price list of entire series.

Among the pieces destined to become cult we find the carpet “Wet Grass” (229 euros), the deforming mirror (159 euros), the imitation of the Mona Lisa (49 euros) and the wall clock (25 euros). The brown shopping bag with the inscription “Sculpture”, which includes two models, the small one that will cost about 10 euros and the oversized one from 13, is also worth a visit. The “Keep off”, “Blue” and “Grey” rugs will be sold for between €79 and €229.

The launch of the collection is scheduled for next November. We remember that last April 30th, Abloh showed his followers a MARKERAD preview in live streaming from a secret location in New York, which you can find below:

On the IKEA website, you can immediately see the brand’s intent, which is to help Millennials furnish their homes with style and affordable prices:

“We’re looking at that first phase of adult life, when you start making purchases for your space”.

We are sure that this collection will be a success. And you?

Tomas Markevicius’ fashionable women

Tomas Markevicius’ fashionable women

Claudia Fuggetti · 11 months ago · Design

Lithuanian artist and art director Tomas Markevicius creates graphics that feature very fashionable women who stand out against brightly coloured backgrounds. It must be said that this is not by chance, Tomas has collaborated with fashion brands such as Prada, Nike, Miu Miu Miu, Hyundai, Samsung and the Metropolitan Museum Of Art.

His technique blends photography with digital art, where through digital brushstrokes, his protagonists take on a new look: pop, carefree and dynamic. A recurring characteristic is that of obscuring the face of her subjects, which become mannequins without identity, which are embedded in the colour.

Follow Tomas on his Instagram profile that you find here.
