Tilia Coathanger by Alicja Prussakowska

Alicja Prussakowska: ‘Tilia is a freestanding hanger that can be also used as a seating. This object was designed to be fitted in the hall space. While designing the form of the hanger I was inspired by shape of the grass blowing in the breeze. Sublime details highlight the beauty and nobility of the wood and presents the value of traditional craft. The associations with the human-friendly natural environment and the feeling of comfort and freedom of use, the originality and uniqueness of this piece of furniture as a master work of human hands, distinguish this hanger among mass-produced furniture.’

Noa Raviv Graduate Collection

Noa Raviv: ‘Classical sculpture and its evolution was the point of departure for creating this collection. Classical Greek sculpture once represented an ideal of beauty. It was copied and reproduced many times throughout history until it became an empty repetition of style and expression. We live in a culture where everything is replicated, so what is the value of an original object? I have deliberately created defective digital images with 3D software. Deformed objects that were created by a command that the software was unable to execute. These objects cannot be printed or produced in reality. They exist only in the virtual space. The tension between the real and the virtual, between 2D and 3D inspired me to create this collection. During the excessive research for the collection, I developed my own textiles and shapes, with the 3D parts created using Stratasys’ Objet Connex500 multi-material 3D printing technology.’

Shark Guns Sculptures by Christopher Schulz

Native Los Angeles based artist, Christopher Schulz, works in multiple mediums to create his sculpture and 2D wall pieces. Although different disciplines, a common soul is shared in striving to invite emotion, delivering intent and enabling sensory exploration. The vast body of work reflects elements of the artist’s surroundings both past and present, many times depicting familiar iconography to evoke a visual response that brings the viewer into a personal relationship within any given work. Discover below the Shark Guns series where the fire weapon is combined with one of the most dangerous predators.

Fine Food Kärlek och Mat by Note Design Studio

Note Design Studio: “For this interior we were inspired by a beautiful photo series of the misty Death Valley by Jordan Sullivan, capturing the subtle variation and soft color changes of daylight that turns the harsh landscape into a poetic, inspiring place.The Finefood restaurant and coffee shop serves well cooked everyday food and pastries for the inhabitants of Hammarby Sjöstad (an exciting new district in Stockholm where the City has imposed tough environmental requirements on buildings, technical installations and the traffic environment, from day one.) in the south of Stockholm. ”

One of the challenges designing the place is the fact it being a mix of a café, lunch restaurant and bistro. It must work just as well serving breakfast at 7am in the morning as serving beer 7pm in the evening. As a Swedish design studio leaning on our minimalistic heritage, we created a clean, soft space with a calm, inviting color palette. The base of the interior is a custom made herringbone tile floor representing the rich gray scales of rocks and mountains. The color palette – ranging from the deep green marble to various nuances of pale green and turquoise with contrasting salmon red and peach – are a direct translation of the colorful variations of the natural light in the mountains.

“The materials are typical Scandinavian such as light ash wood, brass and natural leather except for the Green Guatemala marble used some part of the design. Tables, sofas and shelves are specially designed for this project giving it its own unique identity. Over the custom made furniture we have used – our own ceramic lighting Fuse for Ex-t(IT), lacquered wooden chairs from Zilio Aldo (IT), slick floor tiles from Mutina (IT) and a few really nice brass wall lights from Atelier Areti (UK) to top things off.”

Woven Portraits by David Samuel Stern

David Samuel Stern: These images are the result of physically weaving together two photographic prints of the same subject. They are an attempt to bridge dignified, direct portraits with a sort of abstraction that allows their subjects to hide within themselves, and the photographs to be distinctly physical objects. In hiding some things, we reveal others.
