ORGÁNICA designed by Hugo Tejada

 

ORGÁNICA, Surprising and magical, designed to be a key subject within the decorative space, functional and aesthetic, elegant and transgressive, a timeless object that can last over time.
One more time, the designer is inspired in the nature for conceiving the collection ORGÁNICA. Its fluid and irregular shapes are inspired by marine elements, coral and natural sponges, sea rocky areas… apparently complex structures, with many cavities and porous surfaces, transferred to a functional and daily object.

SAIL by Héctor Serrano for GANDIABLASCO

 

The warm color, the raw materials and the craft techniques, characteristic of Eastern cultures have inspired designer Héctor Serrano to widen the SAIL collection originally designed for GAN, the outdoor brand belonging to GANDIABLASCO, and launch his Sail Outdoor version.
The Spanish designer has used an external fabric in place of the traditional wool dhurrie of the previous version to create a fresh, modern and voluminous collection. His design converts this product into an alternative and fun product that can easily adapt to many different spaces.
The result is a versatile collection of comfortable outdoor poufs and a unique design.

Modern Mews by Coffey Architects

Photographer: Tim Soar

An intricately designed and constructed piece of joinery crafted to live in.

The typical London mews house enjoyed windows only to the front of the property creating difficulty for habitable, comfortable and lit rooms to the back of the house; making practical modern spaces for living in such small constrained sites can be difficult to achieve. The Modern Mews employs many of the design ideas in Japanese tea houses (Chashitsu) to create a home full of light with numerous activities brought together through visual links.
