Dream Weaving: Techtextil 2017

Just one of many examples: dynamically curved stadium roof in Kiev with ventilation outlets. The universal membrane material is polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE (© 3M-Dyneon/M. Bredt)

Building with textiles today means much more than stretching huge spans across building exteriors, and it is among the textile sectors that foresee significant growth. In many points, the characteristics and functions of high-tech textiles clearly and impressively outstrip those of traditional materials. Intensive research and development has brought great progress in all areas of technical application for textile solutions and concepts. Yet many innovative solutions go virtually unnoticed, as they do their work largely hidden from view. (text by Ulrich Büttner )

Refin: Aesthetics in the bathroom

Design Industry collection

 

In the past, bathrooms were mostly used functionally. More recently, however, the image of this interior space has been changing. The bathroom is becoming an integral and important part of the house, similar to the kitchen. These new oases offer wellness, relaxation and time for oneself, and have become very stylish. Surfaces, accessories and furniture offer a range of styles that leave nothing to be desired. To this end, Refin offers selected tile decors that give each bathroom a unique appearance.

Fumi by Alberto Caiola

Photographer: Dirk Weiblen

Celebrating coffee’s intangible pleasures, Alberto Caiola translates coffee’s aromatic vapors into a sculptural ceiling that is the centrepiece for this café in Shanghai. Gently sloping away from the counter, the striking installation becomes at once canopy and stage for baristas to perform their art. Rich and dark in color, the ceiling’s ‘fumes’ evoke the depth of the drink itself, winding up and beyond the venue’s glass façade. Lending a sense of movement to the entire space, the installation creates a partially covered area for attractive outdoor seating in warmer weather. (more…)

The kitchen becomes a space of social character linked to the entrance of the house, extending its use beyond the mere act of cooking and eating. The project promotes a domestic space of relationship while linking visually and programmatically the hall and the kitchen. (more…)
