Reverse Pickup Table Lamp, the lamp inspired by a vinyl turntable

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

ADD Architecture Studio has created the Reverse Pickup Table Lamp, a lamp inspired by a vinyl turntable, which just like this one has a spinning record.

The project takes up the concept of sound transmission linked to the movement of the vinyl in contact with the needle. In the same way the table lamp is formed by two bronze arches, which act as a guide, in the middle of which flows a marble disc that gradually illuminates. The more this rotates on the base, the more it lights up.

The disc is available in three interchangeable colors and consists of two marble discs in the middle of which was placed a led ribbon powered by the contact with the bronze base.

A design object with clean and elegant lines that thanks to the movement allows you to create a soft play of light and shadow.

When the lamp reaches its maximum illumination, and therefore the record is at its maximum distance from the starting point, it will really look like a turntable, but put vertically. This position gives life to the name Reverse Pickup Table Lamp.

Japan meets Brazil in the Kaikaya restaurant

Japan meets Brazil in the Kaikaya restaurant

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

The Kaikaya restaurant was born from the idea of Mireia, a young Valencian, to combine Japanese tradition with Brazilian exoticism.

The tropical sushi restaurant is the result of years of history and cultural contamination. In fact, at the beginning of the 20th century, the Japanese arrived in Brazil to work on coffee plantations. Here they had to adapt to Brazilian eating habits. After years of experimentation and research into different tastes, a Japanese-Brazilian gastronomy was born.

Kaikaya witnesses this new culture from the point of view of both food and design.

The project curated by the design studio Masquespacio maintains the elements already present in the structure, highlighting the beauty of the imperfections. Representing Japanese culture are materials such as wood and raffia, reminiscent of the hats used during the rice harvest. Brazilian tropicalismo, however, is given by decorative elements such as patterns made from mosaic tiles, parrots and a wide use of plants.

Two countries so far apart and different here come together in a perfect mix.

Herri Susanto transforms simple photographs into surrealist worlds

Herri Susanto transforms simple photographs into surrealist worlds

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

In addition to making actresses and celebrities look perfect, in the right hands, Photoshop can create real parallel worlds. Herri Susanto is a self-taught young Indonesian who, after years of tutorials and books, has managed to refine his skills in the use of Photoshop.

Starting from a simple photo, which can sometimes seem banal and flat, he creates surreal images. He creates real fantastic worlds in which the streets start from a smartphone or at a certain point the landscape inexplicably bends as if the earth were not round.

His passion began with the intention of slightly modifying his daughter’s photos. Then, discovering the thousands of possibilities offered by photo editing, he became so good that he fascinated almost 100,000 people on Instagram.

Skeleton, you have never seen a set of cutlery smarter than this one

Skeleton, you have never seen a set of cutlery smarter than this one

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

As we have already seen with Watercolor, every time the design studio Nendo presents a new work we are amazed by the simplicity and elegance of the lines. This time the Japanese studio has created Skeleton, a fantastic set of cutlery with minimal design and ergonomic shapes.

The collection consists of four items: a spoon, a teaspoon, a knife, and a fork. The PVD coating, available in four colors: silver, black, copper and gold, makes the surface scratch-resistant and dirt repellent. In addition, a stand is included to keep the set on display when not in use.

The design has been reduced to a minimum, in practice keeping only the outlines of the cutlery, thus recalling the typical images of X-rays. Each cutlery has a recess that allows you to hook them to the edges of the plates, cups or hang them.

The set was designed for The Cutlery Project, a collection for Valerie Objects, a Belgian brand of furniture and home accessories.

Liuzhou Suiseki Hall, a building is in perfect harmony with the landscape

Liuzhou Suiseki Hall, a building is in perfect harmony with the landscape

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

The architects of the TianJin University Research Institute, with the support of Zhang Hua Architects, have succeeded in enclosing all the forms and characteristics of the surrounding environment in the architecture of the new Liuzhou Suiseki Hall.

The Liuzhou Suiseki Hall, which houses a museum and several temporary exhibitions, is located in the center of Liuzhou, a fascinating thousand-year-old Chinese town. Here the city has developed on the banks of the Liujiang River, which has carved its way through mountains and hills. Just behind Liuzhou Suiseki Hall, you can see two mountains, one lower and rounded and the other higher and more squared.

To pay homage to the place, the architects decided to enclose all the diversity of the territory in the structure of the building. Thus, the right side of it is composed of straight lines and rectangular shapes that recall the slopes of the mountains, while the left side has more sinuous lines, similar to those of the river bends.

The choice of the TianJin University Research Institute team is also based on traditional Chinese culture, according to which the mountain and the stream are not opposite, but are part of a harmonious vision of the world.
