Icon Lamp by V12 Design for I TRE

From Valerio Cometti:

Icon owes its strong personality to its distinctive shape and to the juxtaposition of opaque and transparent materials. Icon is a large decorative lamp and I’m particularly pleased with the way the light projected by its own light source interacts with it: the vast opalescent disc on the bottom side of the lamp enhances the quality of the light emission and the glass ribbon creates an elegant ring of light that brings together the heart of Icon with the external environment. It is a precious light manufactured with a great deal of accuracy, beautifully finished with its liquid painted spun metal parts, seamlessly joined with pressed glass and plexiglass details.

The Morro Sofa by deQuinta

Brazilian designers Marcelo Damm, Rafael Roldão, Renato Mosci of deQuinta Design, with the help of Giuliano Mello, have created the Morro Sofa.

From deQuinta:

It all started with a mess. And it was beautiful. Living in Rio, a city surrounded by a bit of chaos here and there, favelas, and thinking that besides all that it works, we figured out that this mess was also functional. And how to incorporate it into a project, how to build upon it? Perhaps even more important, how to make it socially and ecologically relevant and also inspire some criticism? Bring the discussion to your home?

So here is Morro.

Morro is a slang for favela in Rio, something like a hill covered with houses built with whatever means they have. And this had to be translated to the project. Built out of foam waste from other traditional sofas, using cloth shreds as lining (with the help of a favela seamstress and craftwork co-operative) different colored and sized cubes are attached to a very simple recycled wood structure with the use of velcro.

Designer Alfredo Häberli created the interior for this Camper shoe store in Paris. Even though the space is small, he still managed to inject some delightful touches of design. We especially enjoy the shelving upon which the shoes are presented, be sure to notice the various rounded shapes that add some whimsical flair to the shopping experience.

Moët & Chandon Marquee by PTW Architects

The Sydney, Australia based PTW Architects designed this Marquee for the champagne producer Moët & Chandon that was used during the Melbourne Cup horse race.

From the architects:

PTW has used the latest digital technologies from concept to realisation of the design, to create a sparkling and surreal atmosphere in the name of the “bubble-ism”.

Through the use of daylight and a tensioned Lycra material that is digitally patterned and custom-tailored for the space, a 10 by 10 off-the-shelf marquee is transformed into a space that the press describes as an “avant-garde environment not of this earth”.
