Serpentine Pavilion by BIG

Photographer: Iwan Baan

For the Serpentine Pavilion 2016, we have attempted to design a structure that embodies multiple aspects that are often perceived as opposites: a structure that is free­form yet rigorous, modular yet sculptural, both transparent and opaque, both box and blob. We decided to work with one of the most basic elements of architecture: the brick wall.

Nerd Chair By Geckeler Michels

 

Through an innovative integration between seat and back and precise detailing, Nerd has a strong personality and a very iconic character. While the appearance of Nerd is unique, the overall expression, material and craftsmanship all have references to classic Scandinavian design values.

Discocó pendant: beautiful even when off turned off

Today, the Discocó has become an icon of modern lighting. Its unique look catches the eye just as its unique design catches and reflects the light, carefully controlling your room’s illumination. As its designer Christophe Mathieu states, “the results are a pleasant illumination that has a fresh and soft look, and, best of all, there’s no glare.”
Discocó is available in five sizes and four finishes options, so there’s a Discocó for every space. Produced by Marset, it’s also offered as a wall sconce and a ceiling light.

Hupomone Ranch by Turnbull Griffin Haesloop

Photographer: David Wakely

Hupomone Ranch is an original 160-acre homestead located in the Chileno Valley, just three miles west of downtown Petaluma. The ranch had been fallow for over 30 years and the owners, a young family with three children, wanted to build a barn house that would reflect their commitment to sustainable farming, draw on the natural serenity of the site and build on the sense of place in western Petaluma where farming and ranching are still a part of people’s daily lives.

Peter's House by Studio David Thulstrup

Photographer: Peter Krasilnikoff

The renowned photographer Peter Krasilnikoff commissioned us for his private residence in Copenhagen. Our inspiration evolved from worn-out warehouses and factories with their blackened steel and old bricks; a concept which was sparked by the desire to retain the three raw-brick walls of the old garage on site.
