Rust Harvest is a furniture collection made of rust signed by Yuma Kano

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Design

Yuma Kano teaches us that even rust can be beautiful and that’s why he dedicated a whole collection of furniture to this particular material, called Rust Harvest. The artist has experimented with a technique of transferring rust from metal plates onto the acrylic resin, subsequently, the panels are subjected to more atmospheric agents in the form of natural light, which sediments the resin by creating new patterns and arrangements.

The result is a very varied and chromatically harmonious project, composed of tables, bookcases and stools of different sizes. For Kano, rust is a very interesting natural resource and should not be wasted:

“While constantly cast as a devil, a closer look at rust reveals a variety of startlingly beautiful patterns and complex mixtures of color. The contrasting combination of natural and manmade materials produces a fascinating sculptural quality in these pieces of furniture.”

Surely this project will make us reevaluate the annoying rust formed on objects because it can become a precious resource.

Monumental Nobodies, revisited sculptures by Matthew Quick

Monumental Nobodies, revisited sculptures by Matthew Quick

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Design

Matthew Quick is an Australian artist who in his latest series Monumental Nobodies, has decided to revisit images of famous sculptures with disturbing elements, incorporating modern references to gadgets and pop culture. Why this gesture?

The idea of this series came out after a reflection of the artist on the tendency of history to destroy art for ideological reasons: the demolition of buildings, the burning of books and the destruction of statues. Why should art be a victim, always and anyway? And this is how he himself vandalizes his work, to provoke and to reflect on the value of the history of art.

Everything becomes confused, a common thread is created between the one who creates the work and the one who destroys it through vandalism, the universal connection is still leaving a mark and it seems that Matthew has succeeded.

The Forenom Hostel, a bank that has become a hostel

The Forenom Hostel, a bank that has become a hostel

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

The new Forenom Hostel in Jyväskylä, Finland, was designed and furnished jointly by Studio Puisto Architects and Forenom.

The hostel is located in the heart of the citadel and has given new life to an old 1953 building that previously housed a bank. At the ground floor there is the entrance with the reception and in the basement, there are the restaurant, the spa, the sauna and, in the ex-vault, a jacuzzi. On the three upper floors, on the other hand, there are bedrooms, bathrooms and a shared kitchen. The beds are raised to the level of the sill, and under each of them, there is a drawer and a refrigerator. The size of the rooms has been reduced to allow more space for common spaces. In all parts of the building, the same colors and materials are repeated: black, white and wood, which perfectly agree with the ecological choices and efficiency.

Apple Piazza Liberty opens in Milan on Thursday 26 July

Apple Piazza Liberty opens in Milan on Thursday 26 July

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

Tomorrow, Thursday, July 26, at 17.00, Apple Piazza Liberty will open in Milan, the first flagship store, a place of representation of the brand, not just a store, but a real space for sharing.

The new Milanese Apple Store was designed by the British architecture firm Norman Foster & Partners, who also redesigned the entire appearance of the square. Piazza Liberty has, in fact, become completely pedestrian, in the center of which a large staircase has been built that in addition to offering access to the store was designed as a meeting point. At the foot of this amphitheater, under a huge Apple logo, you enter the store, which is developed entirely underground, where a few years ago found the rooms of the Apollo cinema. The interiors finished with great care are typical of all Apple stores in the world, like those of Apple Cotai Central in Macao.

The element that fascinates most is the large and spectacular eight-meter glass fountain, which pays tribute to the waters of Milan and the Navigli canals, and which can also become a screen for projections.

Apple Piazza Liberty is a perfect venue for events that will take place throughout the year and for Today at Apple, free sessions on topics such as photography, filmmaking, music creation, programming, design and more, which aim to stimulate the creativity of all the participants. Enrollments for meetings are already available on the site. In September, the store will host the Milan Series, a special one-month series entitled “Cosa farai domani a Milano?” (What will you do tomorrow in Milan?) in which 21 local artists will share their vision on the creative future of Milan.

“Apple Piazza Liberty represents the best expression of our vision of Apple stores as modern meeting places. In a city so rich in art history, entertainment and creativity, it is an honor to create a space where anyone can be inspired to learn, create and get in touch with the people who live around “.

The Kumaon Hotel, a luxury retreat on the Himalayas

The Kumaon Hotel, a luxury retreat on the Himalayas

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

The Kumaon Hotel is located in the Kumaon region on the Himalayas. This luxury retreat is located at 1600 meters above sea level, near the historic Indian city of Almora. To arrive at the hotel, located on a ridge of the Nanda Devi mountain, you have to take steep paths that branch off from the main road.

The project is signed by the architects Pradeep Kodikara and Juneshi Samaraweera from Zowa architects, who have thought of a type of architecture that cares about the environment, which is why it is completely wrapped in bamboo. The materials used, stones, bamboo, pine wood and fabrics, both for the structure and for the furniture, were purchased locally and processed by local artisans.

The Kumaon Hotel has 10 luxury suites, a library, a solarium and a gourmet restaurant, but the most spectacular thing it has to offer is absolutely a new kind of peace between mountains, valleys, forests and lakes and breathtaking landscapes.
