Spaces on Wheels, the cars of the future of SPACE10

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

What if cars became homes? SPACE10, the IKEA laboratory that develops sustainable methods for the homes of the future, presented Spaces on Wheels. The team imagined the interiors of the cars once they drive themselves.

The project includes seven different vehicles with as many different uses, an office, a café, a farm, a hotel, a clinic, a shop and one dedicated to entertainment. These are vehicles equipped with anything that might be useful, furnished with tables, sofas, chairs, shelves or cabinets. These spaces can be explored in virtual reality thanks to the SPACE10 application.

At a time when innovations in the automotive industry are traveling so fast, it’s not hard to think of a future in which vehicles will be autonomous and therefore usable for other activities as well.

On the road to LDF – Interview with Bethan Laura Wood

On the road to LDF – Interview with Bethan Laura Wood

Claire Lescot · 1 year ago · Design

One of the common and recurring clichés about London is that it is a gray city. In fact, beyond the gray sky the British capital offers many glimpses of color, just stop for a moment and look around more carefully.

We spoke with the eclectic and courteous designer Bethan Laura Wood who, this year, is present at the London Design Fair with two well-known Italian companies. She explained that the search for color was of fundamental importance in her life as a useful tool to assimilate the surrounding environment and to fully express herself.

Do not miss the CC-Tapis showroom where she will exhibit the Super Fake collection. The different knotting techniques of the carpets imitate the different surfaces of the rocks. In the Moroso showroom, instead, she will present Mono Mania Mexico: a textile installation with jacquard fabrics, prints, rugs, tapestries, and vases that recall the typical designs of the Otomi, an indigenous Mexican people, revisited in a contemporary version.

Who encouraged you to follow this creative path?

I always knew I wanted to become an artist and I think my parents encouraged me because they knew it was a fundamental part of my essence. Maybe because as a child they always saw me painting on the kitchen table! (Smiles). With the growth, in addition to painting and drawing, I got to know the world of design better. At the Royal College of Art, I learned to have more courage to try to acquire my taste and sense of color. I have always loved colors and patterns but until then I was uncertain and not confident about how to translate all this into the design world. My tutors Martino Gamper and Jurgen Bey have really pushed me to have more confidence in my tastes trying to use this aspect as language and identity for my work.

What will you present at this year’s London Design Week?

With CC-Tapis we will present our Super Fake collection. For Moroso, there will be a vibrant installation made up of fabrics, tapestries, vases, and furniture that will be part of my Mono Mania – Mexico collection.

Let’s talk about the Super Fake collection, where did you get inspiration from?

Super fake is very linked to a series of my works in London. The color palette is taken from my walks in East London. I analyzed the colors of the city and also the constant flow between the real and the unreal, the physical and the digital.

I really liked the idea of the continuous transition between one material and another, from “real” to “false”, something that is becoming more and more confused in the era of Instagram and Snapchat filters.

Each carpet is layered and is based on a different form of rock; the various processes have been developed over the years by Tibetan artisans.

Where will we find you during the London design week?

I will go as far as possible. I like walking in the different areas to see the greatest number of works. I will defiantly address what is happening in the eastern part of the city, where I have my studio. I have always loved the Brompton district and look at the installations at the Victoria and Albert Museum and can not wait to see Fernando Laposse‘s. I’m really impressed by his work which involves developing projects that celebrate Mexico’s natural streets and how to create new materials and surfaces from them.

Three things that characterize your work right now?

Color,
layers,
lines.

What do you collect?

Everything! I love vintage plastic and colored objects. I often start collecting based on the objects I’m working on. Since the beginning of the collaboration with Moroso and CC – Tapis, I have truly collected one billion fabrics!

Could not you live without …?

Colors.

ReActor, when living in a house becomes a performance

ReActor, when living in a house becomes a performance

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Design

The projects by Schweder + Shelley are halfway between architecture and art installation so that they create the series of experimental projects Social Relationship Architecture. Among the works, there is ReActor, a house designed for two people and built in the balance on a column 4.5 meters high. The house was built on a hill in the field of Art Omi Architecture Field in the state of New York.

The house rotates 360 degrees on its own and tilts like a swing according to the movements of the tenants, who must each remain on one side of the house to keep it stationary. So, a place created for two people who can not really be together.

Living in this house becomes a real artistic performance, in which one’s movements are linked and conditioned by the movements of the other.

This example of performative architecture asks questions about the nature of social space and how architecture can influence human behavior.

GRIS is Nomada Studio’s new spectacular videogame

GRIS is Nomada Studio’s new spectacular videogame

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Design

GRIS is Nomada Studio’s new spectacular video game designed to be a real dream. The landscapes are characterized by a watercolor effect, which leads this product to be a true artwork. Gris is an introspective path of a girl who faces her inner journey by wearing a dress that changes tone and volume according to her moods and fully represents the new gaming experience that is spreading in recent times.

The great particularity of this product, beyond the graphic beauty, is the platform mode that consists of adventure levels and pure risk-free explorations because the concept of death doesn’t exist in this video game.

Gris is a contemplative experience of great quality that will be available on market by December 2018 for Nintendo Switch and Windows 10 PC.

Find out more on the website of the producers that you find here.

Vintage style for Sella Concept’s Piraña London

Vintage style for Sella Concept’s Piraña London

Claudia Fuggetti · 1 year ago · Design

Sella Concept created the Piraña, a retro-inspired bar, and restaurant located in the Balham area of London, avoiding the usual South American clichés. The headquarters are owned by brothers Alastair and Nicholas Heathcote, who in the last five years have set up numerous successful businesses in the British capital.

To avoid usual color combinations of soft colors linked to the South American tradition, the studio founders Tatjana Von Stein and Gayle Noonan opted for bright and decisive colors, such as bright red and bright blue. The seats have a style reminiscent of a restaurant of the 50s.

“We are both fascinated by the psychology of behaviour behind design and the question of how to encourage behaviour through layout, design and materials, what design makes us feel. Our favourite projects are those that allow us to answer one question: how can we transport an audience? The design concept began by developing an understanding of how people will use the overall space, incorporating visual shifts and atmospheric transitions to accommodate changing behaviours within the venue”.

Each environment has a different personality, but consistent with the entire project, it seems that Piraña was created with the intent to make a leap into the past to escape from city stressful reality. The design and geometries of furnishings have been expertly studied, nothing is left to chance in this place:

“Apart from the chairs and lights, every fixture and item of furniture in Piraña has been custom-designed for the space by Sella Concept, including the booths, bar, banquette, tables, stools, floors and bathroom sinks”.

Even the menu, business cards, and the website have been released by Sella Concept, to guarantee their visual-planning coherence. The London-based studio has recently completed several projects, including De Beauvoir Block creative center, Mediterranean-style Pimlico’s Omar’s Place restaurant, and Hackney’s Pink Night Tales bar.
