Tracing Identity: De Castelli

As a group the Scribble series of coffee tables by Francesca Lanzavecchia exhibit the varied palette made possible by exposing copper to different oxidations. Like paint strokes they have playful names such as Dot, Comma, Accent and Bracket

 

Seven female designers throw new light on that most ancient of materials, metal, in a unique collaboration with modern-day alchemists DE CASTELLI – to be launched at this year’s Salone del Mobile.(text by Bethan Ryder)

Caro Somerset by Emil Eve Architects

Photographer: Mariell Lind Hansen

Caro Somerset is a new lifestyle store, cafe and b+b in Bruton, Somerset designed by Emil Eve Architects.

The Grade II Listed highstreet property has been extensively reconfigured, refurbished and extended to become a new destination in Bruton, home of Hauser + Wirth and The Chapel. With its low ceilings and doors, uneven walls and floors and original features, the shop and cafe were never going to be slick white designer spaces, neither did we want to over-reveal or strip back and expose surfaces in a ‘shabby-chic’ style. Instead we sought to place flexible furniture pieces into the rooms and to use original elements of the building, such as the fireplaces, niches and deep window reveals for display. Materials and colours were chosen to compliment the existing character of the rooms: shady, welcoming and intimate.

The Shapeshifter: Alain Berteau

“We work hard questioning existing typologies for ourselves and for clients,” explains Alain Berteau. “We can’t help it. Shaping a model to make it ‘good-looking’, ‘ trendy’ or ‘stylish’ is nice, but, for us, it’s not enough”

Simple, meaningful designs that eschew trends in favour of long-selling products pushing typological boundaries – this is the stuff of Brussels-based studio Alain Berteau Designworks. (text by Simon Keane-Cowell)

Westbourne Gardens by nimtim architects

Westbourne Gardens is a first-floor apartment within a grand early-Victorian Terrace facing the triangle of Westbourne Gardens in Royal Oak, West London. The flat is only 45 m2 which is less than the current London Housing Design Guide’s minimum for a 1 bedroom flat (50 m2). The existing flat had been divided into 3 long, narrow spaces with a false ceiling and none of the original features exposed.

Amaru by Meme Design

Photographer: Eliza Rosie Tyrall

The philosophy behind this venture is to bring a unique, sensory and high culinary dining experience to Melbourne. The resultant design presents an intimate, artisanal interior, with crafted and natural materials, lending a comfortable, pared-back and zen-like quality to the space. Inspired by the austerity of Spanish design, the focus was on simplicity and restraint of materials. The hand-finished walls and floor are of smooth cement, whilst the original copper-framed windows and doors were complemented by rusty felt drapes –adding warmth and texture.
