In a sun-filled loft on the Greenpoint waterfront, Farrah Sit and her team are quietly building the business that she always aspired to work at. This required a decisive returning to making and culminated with the launch of her eponymous brand Light + Ladder. (by Isaac Friedman-Heiman for WorkOf)

As geopolitical isolation gives way to international rapprochement for Iran, all eyes are on how this highly educated, culturally rich, as well as commodity rich, nation is going to develop. While certain sectors have undoubtedly been affected by decades of sanctions, the Iranian architecture scene – bereft of Western starchitectural interventions – has managed to flourish.

 

Our ‘Architecture Iran’ series looks at a range of projects completed recently in the Islamic Republic from a number of angles, with its second installment focusing on how the old Persian concerns of geometry and light are enjoying a renaissance in contemporary architectural praxis.

Specification is the name of the game at this January’s edition of MAISON&OBJET in Paris.

 

With interior architects and designers Philippe Boisselier and Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance tasked with delivering an engaging scenography, the fair – held once again at the city’s Parc des Expositions in Paris Nord Villepinte – has been given an overhaul in terms of organisational logic. Visitors will be invited to get up close and personal with high-end products and materials across three new hubs – Maison, Objet and Luxury, Design and Interior Decoration.

 

Of particular interest to architects, interior architects, designers and planners will be Luxury, Design and Interior Decoration, and the ACTUEL Contract exhibition, which brings together textile producers, materials experts, as well as specialists in bespoke furniture, coverings and lighting. Also of interest: the DESIGNERS’ STUDIO in Hall 8, which, open to specifiers and labelled SpecialArchiDesigners exhibitors only, offers a comfortable and practical workspace and hospitality area in which you can get down to business.

HELIX is a diffuse furniture system that generates a continuous interior space by adapting simultaneously to any vertical and horizontal surface while defining an immersive spatial atmosphere. Its form recalls a natural system that emerges from the structure beneath. (by OSW – Open Source Workshop)

imm cologne

In the beginning there was Cologne. 1949 to be exact. imm cologne set the blueprint for the large international design trade fair and has been attracting a global crowd of A&D professionals looking for inspiration and to do business ever since.

 

As the first major exhibition of the year in the industry calendar, it also sets the mood and outlines the trends, to a certain extent, for the year ahead. And let’s not forget it’s where a fledgling Architonic first set up its stall many moons ago.

 

Of particular interest to architects and interior architects at the 2016 edition of the show – beyond the 1,200 exhibitors from over 50 countries, plus emerging young design talent – will be the ‘Smart Home’ installation in Hall 4.2, which stages the latest in intelligent networking, and Sebastian Herkner’s ‘Das Haus’ in Hall 2.2, which offers visitors the chance to investigate a total, concept-led living environment.
