Amazing interior by Storage Associatti architects from Milan. Strong conceptual space of bar and restaurant, where a complex simplicity of materials superposed in different layers create a rich interior that is worth to study.
Above all the sense of space of this building is impressive. It is the roughness of its materiality and the maximum expression of a conceptual building, which it is taking on its complete honesty of a strong design.
I am impressed by the work of Ethan Hon, graduated from Parsons School of Design and selected by Wallpaper Magazine as one of the up coming designers to look at. His graduation collection already looks like ready to wear, but at the same time it is a bold statement of contemporary fashion.
I have followed Will Yates-Johnson work for a while as he is part of Philippe Malouin team. Very interesting to see he influence of Max Lambs marmoreal in design. How contemporary is to show processes and how materials are made. It is not the DIY era anymore, it is the SHIM ("Show How Its Made") era.
