Born in Rome in 1914, Lina Bo Bardi’s extraordinary legacy as an architect, set designer, editor, illustrator, furniture designer and curator, has yet to be fully acknowledged. But Claudio Feltrini, CEO of Arper, became fascinated by the idea of developing a project that has never been industrially produced – the Bardi’s Bowl chair (1951): a hemispherical shape and simple volume that has a strong spatial presence. Arper will produce the Bowl chair in a numbered and limited edition of just 500, to acknowledge Lina Bo Bardi’s place in the design fraternity.
The coveted Red Dot Design Award is one of the highest accolades awarded our industry and undeniably the darling of the design world. Out of 6,800 entries from 43 countries, it comes as no surprise to us that the team at LZF Lamps have taken home two awards for their innovative High Fidelity campaign!
High Fidelity is based on LZF’s belief that one must play and experiment with light in order to create the right settings and ambiances which will allow the user to create unforgettable moments in their lives. It confirms just how comfortable LZF are with their success that they can spin off a campaign for their new product which takes them far from their core business, and can win them two awards in the categories of Branding and Sound.
Congratulations to LZF!
THE ONE VISION THAT EVERYONE AT THE SALONE INTERNAZIONALE DEL MOBILE WAS TALKING ABOUT WAS THE INSTALLATION BY 2008 PRITZKER LAUREATE JEAN NOUVEL.
Nouvel was commissioned to create a huge project tailored specifically to the Saloni that would document the tremendous changes that have altered living and working spaces over the past few years.
His response was simply breathtaking, creating several work environments that were light-years away from the commercial spaces most of us inhabit today. Nouvel says that he believes that the architect’s job is to “interpret the technical, cultural and social changes of the age in which we live and to express them poetically in a quest for freedom.”
In the installations featured here we believe that Nouvel has exquisitely captured the essence of his brief, and has offered a view of a workplace that runs completely counter to the dedicated office of today.
