What a beautiful fashion retail done by Japanese architects Keiichiro Sako and Takeshi Ishizaka of SAKO Architects. The idea of this fashion store design is coming from satisfying the shopaholic and and provide them not only the great range of fashion product but also give the comfortable and chic place where they can spend their money to fulfill their desire.
Project picks archaic magical conception of the universe that surrounds the value of jewelry and the odd propose -against the usual crowded shop filled with jewelry, a wrapper which exposes the valuable pieces, as unique, exclusive. This creates an mysterious, strange, hollow, weightless, while eastern and Baroque atmosphere.
The series 21-pendant canopy by Bocci is inspired by the sporadic array of barnacles on a substrate in nature. It involves the casing of Porcelain around glass cones of diverse sizes, ensuing in an exclusive manifestation to each match. Featured above is a porcelain and borosilicate glass fixture that is perched by a metal wire to a brushed nickel awning.
On the 5th Avenue side the windows had a street/pop art kind of style painted with airbrush stencils. Knoth’s photograph presents a dark mood with the reflection of the building and American flag at the top left corner of the picture. It’s eery how the building seems to fade away revealing the diamonds and the mannequin well centered within the motif.
The inspiration for softseating comes from a desire for flexible and spontaneous space making. softseating’s magnetic ends allow it to connect to itself forming a cylindrical stool or low table. Elements of the same size can also connect to one another to form long winding benches, providing endless seating topographies. Made from a single material, the beauty of these pieces sits between the representative and the abstract, creatively interchanging with one another.
Canadian designer Lukas Peet has created the Hanging Light, using an energy efficient fluorescent bulb.
Who didn’t love playing with Legos and Construx as a kid? Now that we’ve grown up, 3form has made the adult equivalent: Ditto, a modular cross-shaped product that forms together to create partitions, sculptural center pieces and wall art. Made from 40 percent pre-consumer recycled materials, the modules come in a variety of colors and can be used to create endless organic structural designs.
Normally at a big construction site, an ugly OSB wall plastered with posters provides a barrier between the site and the rest of the city. Typically thought of as eyesores, these walls are anything but pleasing to the eye. But what if they could be transformed into living urban spaces full of plants and systems that provide both an environmental and social benefit to the people walking by? The Symbiotic Green Wall, by Kooho Jung & Hayeon Kelly Choi, could do just that!
Bright, block colour is a major fashion trend this summer. Retailers are utilising on this trend to grab our attention. The stores have not just presenting their bright fashion in the windows, it’s in the window schemes themselves. Bright stock against bright background but also combined with white. Although this trend is mostly about mixing different block coloured together – I have thrown in some bright print windows as well.
Much publicity for Selfridges for their new windows featuring 20 Bright Young Things, new designers but quite honestly I thought they were a bit of a mess and I much preferred the windows on the Duke St side of the store telling the real Spring story of solid block colour in a pure and graphic style.
For a more ambient eco-lighting solution, we love QisDesign’s gorgeous glowing Crystal Light, which consists of a luminous set of icosahedrons that snap together using magnets. Each cluster of LED lights can change colors independently or all at once, and they can be infinitely expanded by purchasing an additional set of bulbs.
