Boomerang Chair, design: Richard Neutra, 1942, reedition by House Industries

California, and in particular Los Angeles, has been home to numerous Hollywood stars and other glamorous figures of the burgeoning jet-set since the 1930s. The City of Angels was the ideal place for many architects to develop their ideas. The spectacular landscape, the sophisticated clientele, the climate, the wealth of the film industry, and, above all, the free-thinking that transcended all convention offered architects then, as well as now, the opportunity to realise their visionary projects.

'Desirée' by Swedese

After a long an insistant winter – at least in Middle Europe – the last month of spring finally arrived. The Swedish manufacturer Swedese presented at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair a re-edition of an in- and outdoor family designed in 1954 by Yngve Ekström – the well-known Swedish designer who was also the founder of Swedese by the way. ‘Desirée’ is made from white lacquered steel wire – artfully and smartly bent it gives a certain lightness and strong stability to pieces at the the same time.

'Pedrera' by Braba Corsini for Gubi

'Pedrera' by Braba Corsini for Gubi

In 1955, the property company behind Gaudi’s famous building La Pedrera in Barcelona wanted to convert the attics, which were primarily used for storage, into flats. The company therefore contacted the Spanish architect Barba Corsini.
Corsini designed 13 individual flats, numbered 1-14 due to superstition. The assignment also entailed designing lamps and furniture to complete the overall architectural experience of the flats.
Corsini found his inspiration for the lamps’ cylindrical shape and holes in Gaudi’s chimneys, and achieved great international recognition for his architecture and design for La Pedrera.

At this year’s Milan furniture fair the German manufacturer ClassiCon presented some famous classic creations by Sergio Rodriges, a real doyen of Brazilian furniture design. With his work Rodrigues managed to give Brazilian design its own identity and with his casual ‘Mole’ armchair he attracted well-deserved international recognition – “modern furniture in the spirit of Brazilian tradition,” as Oskar Niemeyer remarked. From this year on ClassiCon will be marketing some of these classics. We had the honour of interviewing Sergio Rodrigues in Milan.
