Julie Richoz: Refined Experimentation

Julie Richoz: Refined Experimentation

Thalie for Artecnica

Allaying the presence of spring-steel in a delicately laced structure, the Thalie bowl for Artecnica echoes earlier speculative works like Armand: a series of paper cut-out cylinders that cover spectrum colour vibrations. Both are just a sampling of Swiss-French designer Julie Richoz’s ever-iterative oeuvre. The emerging talent has captivated the higher echelons of the craft-led design industry since establishing her own practice four years ago. Since then, she’s straddled the worlds of limited edition and contract market design; establishing a niche style all her own: bright colours and characteristic forms that challenge the convention of age-old materials, production methods and mandates to improve our everyday.

Capture

 

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.

All the warmth of the Mediterranean. The concept of the 36e8 MadeTerraneo kitchen plays on the juxtaposition of tradition and innovation.
