'Divan' by Riccardo Arbizzoni for Riva 1920

‘Tra le Briccole di Venezia’ is a project initiated by the Italian manufacturer for high class solid wood furniture Riva 1920. 29 important figures in the world of design, of art and of fashion were invited to process an object that is an iconic part of the Venetian scene: the Briccole, the oak mooring posts that rise out of the lagoon. Eroded by the tides, the posts are given new life in the projects of these designers and transformed into objects of art and usage.


'Washhouse' installation by Studio Makkink & Bey

The latest exhibition at the Berlin gallery HELMRINDERKNECHT is dedicated to the newest work of the Dutsch design duo Makkink & Bey. The showcased woollen blankets are the result of the Textielmuseum’s workshop, Textilelab, in Tilburg, Netherlands. Studio Makkink & Bey has created a site-specifc walk through the three dimensional landscape of a rural village. Hanging on a clothesline the blankets give shape to the space and divide it. Individually woven patterns and lines become a house’s exterior walls or refect the imagery of the surrounding landscape.

Puristic Crèche by Oliver Fabel

The Berlin based artist Oliver Fabel created this rather minimalist crèche suitable for both the typical North German Protestant household or next to the Le Corbusier lounge chair.

“An ensemble for the secularised mystic or the unsteady agnostic of today”, that’s how the artist describes his work.
