Tiny Little Chairs necklaces by Bruxe Design

What a nice idea… ! I would love to wear a Eames chair !… I met the guys (the two brothers of Bruxe Design) who make these necklaces last week end. I love their work and their attitude towards design… The necklaces are made in collaboration with Uranium.

Tiny Little Chairs is a series of collectable pendants celebrating mid century design. Each pendant repre- sents a vintage chair which revolutionized furniture production and the design process. The designers of this era have forever changed the way we interact with design objects and their harmony within of our home, office and environment. These miniatures allow you to wear your love and appreciation for these pioneering designers and their iconic objects which continue to be benchmarks for today’s designers.

The first series consists of five chairs, The Scoop Chair, The Pavilion Chair, The Dining Chair, The Work Chair offered in solid gold, silver and bronze.

Residential bridge by Ja Studio

I always like people who take time to put utopic ideas into images… It makes me dream of invisible cities like the ones of Italo Calvino. Colorful, playful and positive view of what a vertical bridge city could be… isn’t it ?

Studio Ja has come with an idea of a residential bridge as the one from the Inception movie. The project called Solar Park South has been part of an international competition “Zero Emission”. Architects from Studio Ja have developped an idea how to hold up the growth of widening cities. To build a new city beneath a bridge could be the solution. Pariticipants of the competition were asked to create designs with respect to sustainable development; economic, energetic and cultural aspects. The goal was to design a building which will capitalize 10km of a highway between cities of Scilla and Bagnara in Italy. Ja Studio has create a design of a residential bridge, which would connect the upper side of the valley with a bottom of the valley.

House in Maihama by Yoshitaka Arita

There’s a lot of beautiful details here ! House in Maihama by Yoshitaka Arita.

The old house had moisture and security (i.e. burglary) issues before it was replaced by this new house. There was also another problem the young couple wanted to solve when they decided to rebuild a new one on the same site – reducing the vibrations from the Metropolitan Expressway running near by. To build their dream home, the client couple hired Yoshitaka Arita, a Tokyo-based architect who had studied architecture both in Japan and the UK. The architect focused on three things – raise, solidify and lower the gravity center. To achieve these three goals, all three construction methods common in Japan were applied. Reinforced concrete and steel frame were used for the first level. The second level, which is the family’s living quarters, was built of wood frame construction.
