Rotterdam-based architecture firm Bekkering Adams has taken the concrete dream one step further to test the partnership of concrete and technology in a more tangible way, with the proposal “Fire Wall”. In collaboration with the Technical University of Eindhoven and Cement & Beton Centrum, the prototype experiments investigate the effects gained by altering the variables of the technology – changes in height, speed and texture all produce different results.
Tyler Adams, the author of Sound Materials, caught up with the Form Us With Love team members – and co-founders BAUX – to discuss their vision to seize on an opportunity to reinvent the aesthetics of Träulit. This Swedish-made, porous building material made from wood wool has excellent sound absorbing properties and the studio found its potential for usage compelling.
With rich colours and sleek style coming out to play, Murals Wallpaper shows us how to keep timeless brick walls contemporary with sophisticated new pieces. The updated collection demonstrates a range of luxurious designs, from brick walls coated in rich, deep colour to classic natural brick looks – for minimal yet warm interior spaces.
A gathering of design inspiration from stories untold, the patterns within Storri embrace cultural values from diverse environments. Both original designs, the two new introductory designs, combined, offer 11 color options.

Concrete is an industrial material that can also be elegant and refined. Croque Béton was born from the idea of highlighting the concrete which has a strong aesthetic potential and its wish is to mix textures and colors for realize original objects and sublimate, in all its forms, this material with strong decorative character.
The choice of materials palette, initially inspired by the brief, during the design phase became more related to our desire to experiment with materials, especially casted concrete and explore themes of form and frame. In fact the brass is introduced to the space in its standardize form, directly informing the concrete table and podiums.
“This outer area is converted into a glass atrium protecting from the urban dust,” said Samyn and Partners. “It covers the principal entrance as well as a new lantern-shaped volume incorporating the conference rooms.” The transparent walls that wrap around the new northeast corner of the building comprise a patchwork of 3,750 recycled wooden window frames procured from renovation or demolition sites across Europe.
The second, extremely elegant series features a fascinating mix of timeless classic and modern elegance: sophisticated retro geometries and 3D materic designs create essential atmospheres – eternally suspended between past and present, art and design – capable of bringing the Art Deco golden rules directly into the third millennium.
Conceived as a decorative wall tile to cover interior walls partially or entirely, it can also be put to use in other areas, such as facade cladding. An important aspect for the design team was to keep this product as a modular system, so that the end-user can be part of the design process by choosing colours and the final composition of the acoustic cloud.
The project of the Milan-based architecture studio consists of two big side walls with a series of settings, spaces and situations strictly connected to the working environment: from the meeting room to the break-out area, from the conference room to the company restaurant without forgetting the waiting areas.
