'Cappello' by molo

The Canadian manufacturer molo, especially known for its sophisticated paper furniture and room deviders, recently unveiled a new floor lamp. ‘Cappello’ is lit by LED. The lampshade, a paper “cap” – or cappello in Italian – is set upon a cylinder of soft white Carrara marble. The cylinder piece actually comes out of the hole bored through the marble block-shaped base for Arco, the iconic floor lamp designed by the Castiglioni brothers and manufactured by Flos.

The cardboard lampshade can be sent by post in a A4 envelope as a greeting card.

'Paperpulp' cabinets by Debbie Wijskamp

The Dutch designer and member of the Temporary Collective Arnhem Debbie Wijskamp realised this edition of rather solid looking cabinets made from handmade paperpulp.

'Paperpulp' cabinets by Debbie Wijskamp

“Inspired by different cultures, making their homes with materials found in their surroundings, Wijskamp wanted to design her own building material. Experimenting with the re-usage of wastepaper resulted in a material with its own characteristic appearance and structure. Besides this, it is a very versatile material with many possible applications.”

“The texture was done with Mudbox 2010 and Photoshop CS3. The projection features work great to get a texture down quickly. After that I used the new export screen to PSD feature to clean up the texture and remove shadows.”

'Westwood' by Camilla Diedrich

'Westwood' by Camilla Diedrich

These are the two new wallpapers by the Swedish designer Camilla Diedrich. As one of the first textile designers to start cutting holes in textiles and structuring them in terms of negative space, Diedrich’s early works related more to deconstruction architecture than they did to fabric design.

With ‘Westwood’ – a wallpaper for corners – she once more underlines her architectural approach.

The design of the die allows the days and months to be shuffled to any eventuality, so the brass parts can be used to press any day of any month until the end of time. The calendar includes all British bank holidays and marks special occasions with pictographic squares.
