The latest as well as the last of the 12 designs from Nikari’s year-long project DESIGNS FOR NATURE, which brought together some of world’s most renowned designers or design studios, who, each month, created a wooden product, this pared-down, minimalist chair was developed in a collaborative process between the famed English product and furniture designer Jasper Morrison and Tokyo-based Wataru Kumano. Made of ash and natural wood oil mixture, here’s what the creators of ‘DECEMBER’ say about its design: ‘”We talked about the pleasure in making things and the idea of a chair that could be bought in a box and built at home. Considering Nikari’s skill in wood work, we worked up the idea of a chair which could be made by following easy instructions…’ (more…)

SG67 handheld vacuum cleaner by Stefano Giovannoni für Alessi

In the past electrical kitchen appliances were a treasured status symbol for the modern household and a symbol of progress. Nowadays, however, they are not particularly valued as gifts in that electronic kitchen products have become cheap mass-produced articles, a development which is generally also reflected in their design. In design-conscious households we therefore tend to find retro design, vintage products or functionally designed professional equipment for the catering industry.
However, where are the household appliances of today which will blend in with a modern design kitchen? We’ve been doing some research for you and have found them….

'I don't go out there wearing white suits and shooting my mouth off about things unnecessarily': Paris- and London-based British designer Jasper Morrison; photo 2007, Suki Dhanda

Respected British designer Jasper Morrison has learnt many things in the course of his career. For example, how to design products that create ‘atmosphere’, as he describes it, yet have longevity, and how to ignore the marketing machine that would turn design professionals into superstars. And how a violent pink can sometimes be, well, a bit too violent. Architonic spent some time at the recent Orgatec fair in Cologne with the thinking designer’s designer.

'Bac' chair by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini

The quiet man of design, Jasper Morrison, has created a chair for Italian brand Cappellini that, as one would expect, is considered and beautifully executed. Known for designing products that are almost timeless and transcendent (if you haven’t read his book ‘Super Normal: Sensations of the Ordinary’, co-authored with Japanese product designer, you should), the ‘Bac’ chair is elegant in its simplicity.

The piece is made of solid ash and plywood, the frame being available in bleached, wenge-tinted or cherry-red-aniline-tinted ash. The seat is upholstered in either leather or linoleum. ‘Bac’ made its début at this year’s Cologne Furniture Fair (imm cologne).

'Monopod' by Jasper Morrison

'Monopod' by Jasper Morrison

Two years ago Vitra presented the original design of Jasper Morrison’s ‘Monopod’ for the first time as a cork chair which was part of the second Vitra Edition. Now the German manufacturer has, without much publicity, included an upholstered version of the chair in its collection. It must have become clear very quickly that this massive but elegantly proportioned armchair is suitable for series production after all.

The Monopod stands sturdily, tapering with an elegant curve to a wedge-shaped backrest. As a small visitor armchair, the Monopod is a companion for sofas and larger armchairs, and in public areas thanks to its solidity can be used in lounges and reception areas.
