OUTDOORFEUERSTELLE
by Jürgen Rajh 

Graz

This product plays with associations and expectations. It makes me think of film scenes where curtains catch fire, but in this case the fabric doesn’t light. That really captures my attention!

I really like the idea of freezing the movement and translucency of the fabric.

BRUTALIST CONCRETE VASE
by David Umemoto

Montréal

Vases offer enormous scope for creativity and I think in this piece, the designer has fulfilled the essential requirements and turned it into a microcosm. It’s fascinating!

CLICK-CLOCK

CLICK-CLOCK

The phrase “form follows function” certainly applies to this clock, which has ripples to denote the hours. But the piece is in no way boring, rather organic and floral.

I like the idea of a glass that fulfils two functions. It saves space in day-to-day life and is fun to use.

3D PRINTED SERIES

Mexico City

3D PRINTED SERIES
von Ricardo Casas und Iker Ortiz für RCDESIGN
Mexico City

I think it’s good to see 3D printing being used more and more in the production of objects. It’s very bold of the manufacturers of this pieces. It produces very efficient new shapes that give a glimpse of the future.
