'dress-up' vase for 361° by Nendo

Nendo will have the pivate exhibition ‘chair garden’ at Galleria Antonia Jannone on Corso Garibaldi 125 during this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan. Amongst others there will be showcased these ceramic works by the Tokyo based studio.


“Three flower vases made in collaboration with Ceramic Japan, a firm in Seto, an area in Aichi Prefecture historically known for its ceramics. The three forms make up a family: a heavyset ‘father’, a slim ‘mother’ and a smaller ‘child.”

'peel' cup for 361° by Nendo

“A small section of the rim of this tea mug has been ‘peeled’ away to allow the tea bag string to escape, and the spoon to remain inside when you drink your tea or put on the lid to carry the mug with one hand.”


Beside this Nendo will present new designs for Arketipo and Flaminia at the Milan Fair as well.

Brick

In the Brick project architects, designers and visual artists from The Netherlands and abroad have been asked to develop a new type of brick or come up with a new use for existing bricks. The results are as diverse as the participants themselves. They testify to intensive form research, the search for new functionality of the brick as well as an artistic approach to the material.

Combined Residencies

The project ‘Combined residencies’ focuses on a change in mentality: to demonstrate that cooperation between architects, visual artists and designers at as early a stage as possible, benefits the interactive, creative process. The results are innovative and surprising. Wienerberger, .ekwc’s partner in developing the project, has researched and manufactured some of the results of Brick and Combined Residencies.

The base is made of thermo-shaped ceramic glass

The base is made of thermo-shaped ceramic glass

At this year´s Milan fair the Italian manufacturer Acerbis presented ‘Trigonos’, a table designed by Massimo Castagna. The glass table has a base which is composed of three glossy-white curved plates made of thermo-shaped ceramic glass. The peculiar bending of the plates determines an intriguing game of concave and convex surfaces and sinuous lines which get close one to the other as if they touched and then move away.

The patterns on the wallpapers are handpainted and finished with epoxy resin.

She now uses these designs with wallpapers, home textiles, and fashion articles; all the things that we use to make our homes and lives perfect. The idea is to show the perfect home, swallowing the perfect housewife with her perfect husband, and make them ridiculously invisible so that they become accessorized by their wish to be seemingly perfect people.
