leafy interior

leafy interior/ cinqcinqdesigners

“Sabz has asked 5.5 designers to design the interior of their new store dedicated to outdoor furniture. They drew from the topographic language the scenic writing of the place.

From the street, a vine arbour of metal leaves, welcomes the visitor to guide him all along the route. As a foliage climbing, like a Virginia creeper, this sign takes the customers towards the various spaces which compose the showroom.
For the display of the collections of chairs and to emphasize the books of the bookshop, 5.5 designers used the longest wall to settle a display stand shelves which evoke the curves of levels of a topographic plan. On the ground, these curves are used to create different area of presentation. Furniture display stands use the geologic vocabulary in the form of strata stacked.
At the ground floor and at the 1st floor, the visitor crosses various sections dedicated to accessories, to packaging (jars, tubs, gardeners), and different mise-en-scene where one find, associated between them, the various typologies of furniture and accessories. Under the glass roof, a taproom allows to sit down and to take time to define in complete peace and in a friendly way the projects of arrangement. Near, a screen illustrates the realizations conceived by Sabz and a material room presents a selection of materials proposed within the framework of outdoor installation.
In all the store, interactive information terminals allow to inquire in a intuitive way about products.
Outside, in the garden designed by Sabz, are exposed barbecues and outdoor kitchens, the furniture in situation as well as games for the children. In the floor, lamps are plunged in an artificial night, to express their qualities in functioning.
More than a commercial place, Sabz is a universe dedicated to the new “casual”, relaxed spirit and without borders. An atmosphere in which we like meeting without way, but which does not exclude a touch of sophistication. This universe integrates the outside as a room to be lived and pushes the walls of the house towards the outside.”

brick lamp mini

image

The original idea of this project is to make people aware of the moment
of concealing and revealing light. To make it a functional lamp, instead of a switch, light is activated when raised(on) or laid flat(off). Also by creating the side facets, a natural
handle is made which also directs the light when the brick
sits on it’s side.

…so I dreamt about places, and I dreamt about landscapes, and I recalled familiar memories of sounds, views, feelings. From those little notions of a space, of light, of atmosphere, my project emerged. I aimed to capture the beauty and the spirituality of an eastern landscape within a physical object.
The collection includes chair, side table, stools and various vessels.

Float is an exquisite illusion for the home – a levitating lotus pond supported by a trio of intertwining stems. Each table is unique, containing an arrangement of lotus leaves sourced from South East Asia. Behaving like a giant plano-convex lens, Float creates many surprising optical and visual effects. Everyday becomes a magical affair, as reality appears to distort around this table.

undergrowth

Undergrowth / Alcarol

Mosses and lichens are very primitive organisms that grow in damp places, including rocks and trees. They form the lowest layer of forest vegetation and are equipped with chlorophyll giving them a green colour of varying degrees of intensity. alcarol recovered some logs from the undergrowth of the Italian Dolomite mountains and cut planks that preserve the natural edges with their native populations of plants, which are embedded in a resin resembling the water that generated their life.

Is it possible to be a revolutionary and like flowers? / camille henrot

This project is a translation of an entire library into ikebana. According to Japanese tradition, ikebana was originally created to “console the soul”. The form of a piece of ikebana, its colours and the choice of flowers used constitutes a form of language. The function of consoling and language – two aspects shared by books and flowers – are the starting point.
