Mercer Hotel Barcelona
The Mercer Hotel Barcelona—an exclusive, five star “Grand Luxe” hotel that’s listed as a historical monument in the heart of Barcelona’s Gothic neighborhood—protects a piece of Barcelona’s valuable historical heritage, as it includes sections of the Roman walls of the ancient city of Barcino, parts of which date back to the 1st century A.D.
Hotel guests have exclusive access to the medieval frescoes of the 28th bastion, discovered during a four-year renovation by architect Rafael Moneo.
Moneo’s vision integrates these items of great historical value with modern design pieces, such as Marset’s Ginger floor lamp in the hotel lounge and Cala outdoor lamp on the rooftop terrace.

Behind any object, especially those concerned with light, there is a clear intention to attempt to improve the quality of life of the user and take care of the space in which the light is found. Light allows us to see our surroundings, looking after light is essential, and it is precisely this, that is at the heart of this project.
‘Reflections on light’ is part of a series of conversations with architects, designers and artists who work with and think about light every day. This first series of videos and interviews focuses on the people behind the objects, concentrating on their creative vision and background from which their ideas are born, the importance of the beauty of an object that is well made, but at the same time never forgetting how the object affects our perception of life.
In Haus D. in Hilpoltstein, architecture and interior design go hand in hand. Around the central kitchen, the open room sequences ensure the professional interaction of living, cooking and working. (text by Detail)

The banks laughed at him because of his idea to make glasses entirely from wood. Including the hinges. Completely without screws. Roland Wolf did not give up, but instead only became more committed and put his heart and soul into the task. Today his company, Rolf Spectacles, is causing a real stir in the spectacles scene.
Spectacles often make a fashionable ensemble complete and are therefore subject for ever changing designs. With veneer, Roland Wolf has discovered a completely new material with which to design his eyewear. The veneer gives the surface a natural touch and makes each pair of spectacles a unique item that has no exact equal anywhere.
