Christian Woo

Covert, by Christian Woo, is a carefully-edited collection of contemporary furniture ranging from sleek, low profile end tables to filing cabinets and sideboards. Each piece highlights the qualities of its materials: sustainably-harvested hardwoods, hand-rubbed oil finishes and thin bands of colour.

There I was, poised in space, a dis-embodied eye, invisible, incorporeal, seeing but not seen

The façade of this house in Valencia, by Spanish architects BBLab Arquitectos, is punctured with a pattern of circular holes. Floor to ceiling glazing on the garden-facing elevations and an internal hanging iron staircase, with no risers, adds to the feeling of lightness.



A Thoughtful Desk Design

I love a design that incorporates its natural internal mechanics and structural elements into the aesthetic presentation. The simple articulation of the the legs on the sides of the Animate Desk allow a sliver of the maple, leather lined drawer to be seen on either side of the American black walnut exterior framework, enhancing its character and providing the user with an interesting look into the inner workings of their desk. Get it here!

Hand-Spun Chair

This twist (literally) on the chair, the brainchild of designer Markus Johansson, challenges the straight, rigid, and traditional forms of the modernist aesthetic, presenting itself as a violent and chaotic swirl of solid wood frozen in time. Combining modern and age-old technique, NEST is constructed of a free form combination of round pegs that are bent and then drilled in a CNC milling machine for a precision fit. The pegs share an identical cut, making production easy and straightforward without sacrificing style.

Sou Fujimoto’s proposal for the Beton Hala Waterfront Center in Serbia

It was announced the other day that Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has tied for 1st place in a competition to design the Beton Hala Waterfront Center in Belgrade, Serbia. The committee has described their vision for the site as “the principal new access point from the capital’s riverfront to its historic core, and a contemporary architectural anchor point for a vibrant pedestrian zone in one of the city’s oldest continually inhabited parts.”

Fujimoto is tied with Serbian architectural studio ARCVS. Here is a gallery where you will find all the proposals . Personally I would love to see Fujimoto’s cloud-like structure erected but given the audacity and ambitiousness of his designs (not to mention home-court advantage working against him) it’s probably unlikely.

The Search for Simplicity

Designer Nicola Loi’s goal in creating the Mirtillo table was to achieve a clean shape with maximum simplicity while maintaining recognizable originality. The polarizing design features two sides with hard lines & an unsupported corner that provides a light & an open view into the core of the table. In contrast, the opposing sides feature soft, flowing curves & a shaved corner with a narrower, more curious view into to the table’s lower center. I’d love to see this piece in pure white or clear polycarbonate.

Dimensions: height 45 cm, surface 60×60 cm, footprint 80×80 cm
