Glade, Rick Owens’ home furniture series

Glade, Rick Owens’ home furniture series

Collater.al Contributors · 3 months ago · Design

Rick Owens is back to the topic of his next and eagerly awaited exhibition, which will be hosted by the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London. The exhibition will be named after the series “Glade” and will see objects in sets for the home. The ten units that makeup Glade, plus two in Batipan plywood, will be covered with military blankets in French wool, both materials designed exclusively by Owens and a bed in the image or likeness of his personal.

The objects are presented as a unique piece, but each element of the series has its own stability and stands even if separated from the others. It is complete with individual lighting, internet, and phone charger.

The exhibition also features a collection of Prong aluminium stools, a new edition of the original curial chair and eight new Aztec crowns, chrome-plated in silver and black with a unique method, which give a small foretaste of Rick Owens’ next show, which will be on the catwalks in Paris at the end of September.

The production was also curated by Michele Lamy, – his wife and partner – the creative force behind this project. It will open its doors to the public from 16 September to 25 October.

Skyscape, the house built on top of a skyscraper

Skyscape, the house built on top of a skyscraper

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Design

The owner of an apartment complex in Bangkok turned to WARchitect to transform the roof of one of his buildings into his own home. The team of architects was not overwhelmed by the challenge and, in the end, created Skyscape

The project involved the actual construction of a house, complete with an outdoor courtyard, using the entire roof area of a skyscraper. In addition, the peculiarity of Skyscape lies in the fact that from a stylistic point of view, but also in terms of choice of materials, the house is drastically different from the style of the building on which it rests its foundations. 

Skyscape Wrchitect | Collater.al

Developed on a single floor, Skyscape is closed on three sides and completely open on the fourth, which opens up through degrees of glass on the gravel courtyard. Inside the space is divided into a dining room, a living room, a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen and a small central courtyard, which allows all rooms to have an opening. 

The style is minimal and linear, and the winning choice has been to cover all the surfaces, floors, walls and ceilings, with long and thin Balau wooden beams, which visually heats the room. 

If you dream of a refuge that allows you to be invisible to everyone and at the same time to enjoy a breathtaking view, a house like Skyscape is for you.

The “Light Project” by Nanda Vigo in Milan

The “Light Project” by Nanda Vigo in Milan

Collater.al Contributors · 3 months ago · Design

“Light, transparency, immateriality”: this is “Light Project” by Nanda Vigo, the exhibition about the amazing work of the artist and designer from the 60’s Milanese cultural scene. 

Nanda was born in Milan in 1936 in an acculturated family that taught her how to appreciate the architectural and artistic world. She was a child when she met the artist Filippo De Pisis and she started studying the Giuseppe Terragni’s architecture. 

Very close to the artist Lucio Fontana, Vigo works all her life on the conflict/light and space harmony, creating incredible design objects that Palazzo Reale has decided to collect in this exhibition, inaugurated on July 23 and ending on September 29, 2019.

Here in the heart of Milan, you can contemplate about 80 works – between projects, sculptures and installations – of the artist, all focused on the light’s theme (which is a non-material material), color, space generation through its immateriality. It’s a journey from the Sixties to our Century to discover Nanda Vigo, a woman who had to fight in the world of art, architecture, and design in those years because of the very limited female presence (she was one of the few women active in Milan). Nanda Vigo at the Royal Palace brings her chromatic studies, the games with natural and artificial lights, the wide use of mirrors: it seems like being in a psychedelic dream. Don’t miss it, it’s going to finish soon!

M House, the house that defies heat and snow

M House, the house that defies heat and snow

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Design

In the Japanese city of Uonuma, in the province of Niigata, all the houses are built following the same structure, to adapt in the best possible way to the cold climate in winter, with heavy snowfall, and heat in summer: the ground floor is intended for the garages and the first floor is built always above them, the pitched roofs are designed to facilitate the melting of snow and, finally, the walls are thicker than normal, to increase the level of insulation. 

Takeru Shoji Architects has succeeded in creating a home that does not have these three characteristics and, on the contrary, facilitates contact between the exterior and interior. The M House is built on higher than usual foundations, so as to isolate it from the ground, but without having the first floor raised as much as the other houses. The use of insulating and water-repellent materials has made it possible to greatly reduce the thickness of the walls, which in winter are covered halfway up by the snow that prevents the warm interior from coming out and, in summer, they keep the environment cool. 

Another fundamental characteristic of the M House is the large window that is almost as large as the surface of an entire side of the house, creating a dialogue between inside and outside, an element that is missing in all the other surrounding houses. 

The interiors also differ from the rest of the town, with an abundant use of wood and a division of spaces that takes place in height through a loft, which houses the bathroom and the bedroom, reached through a raised walkway that also serves as a study and overlooks on one side outside and on the other the huge living room of the lower floor.

The SushiFun in Milan, where Japan meets the West

The SushiFun in Milan, where Japan meets the West

Giulia Guido · 3 months ago · Design

We are in one of the most popular areas of Milan and in one of the most characteristic streets. In via Paolo Sarpi has recently opened SushiFun, a small restaurant that offers Japanese cuisine but not only, also offering a selection of the now-famous poke. 

To differentiate themselves from the competition, the two young owners have relied on the skillful hands of the designers of KTLstudio who have created a place where Japanese culture is able to mix with pastel colors and modern and eclectic elements. 

The minimalism of the forms is typical of the Japanese tradition, the counter and the two tables that allow you to enjoy the meal on the spot are made of light wood, with clean and clean lines and contrast with the walls, for which a pink wallpaper has been chosen. The rose also returns to the ceiling, chairs, and jambs of the three windows overlooking the street. This color was chosen precisely because it is reminiscent of salmon, an essential ingredient in many of the dishes on the menu. 

To give a more pop and original touch, we can find funny elements, such as the prints of different types of fish on the wallpaper, and furnishings, always in the shape of fish, lit in special showcases. 

If, in addition to the taste, you give strong weight to the location SushiFun is the place for you!
