Designer Portrait: Rich, Brilliant, Willing
Rich Brilliant Willing – even if the name of the design studio run by Theo Richardson, Charles Brill and Alexander Williams has a slightly ironic touch, it is an accurate characterisation of the trio – they are rich in ideas, their designs are brilliant and they are always willing to create something new and extraordinary.
The Milan Four: Lorenza Luti from Kartell
In the third of our series of interviews from this year's Milan Furniture Fair with some of the creative industries' leading figures, we meet Lorenza Luti, marketing and retail director of established Italian brand Kartell, which, after 50 years in business, continues to innovate in the use of its signature material – plastic.
Quiet Musings: Michael Govan
A series of new architecture commissions and exhibitions suggests that museums might no longer be in the business of pageantry. In this third, and final, part of a series examining the notion of the post-spectacle museum, Architonic meets Michael Govan, director and CEO of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Precision Casting from the Witch’s Kitchen
When designers and leading industrial enterprises put their heads together, it usually gets exciting. While such a collaboration allows industry the possibility of demonstrating its special capabilities in a completely new context, its manufacturing processes, conversely, provide an unexpected treasure trove of new design solutions for creative minds. This is what happened in the collaboration between SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH Guss Gruppe and the Berlin-based design studio Formfjord.
People Will Talk: Dornbracht Conversations 3
Put a group of designers, curators and design writers in a room and what do you get? The Dornbracht Conversations. The third annual platform for intelligent dialogue on the state of design, past, present and future, hosted by German design manufacturer Dornbracht, took place last month, with a hundred or so invited design journalists and PRs in attendance. Here's our report on some of what was discussed, plus an invitation to you to have your say.
The In-Betweener: matali crasset
She may elect to spell her name all lower case, but matali crasset's work is big on concept and ambition. Yet, the Paris-based designer, who's collaborated with the likes of Established & Sons and Pallucco, insists she's not that interested in products in themselves. Une contradiction? Pas du tout. Architonic invites you to read on to find out why.
New New New: New York Design News
As every spring, Architonic travelled to New York on your behalf in order to investigate the latest trends on the North American market for you. Here we report on what we discovered in the city's showrooms and at the ICFF.
Designer Portrait: Miljana Nikolic, Dimitrios Stamatakis and Masa/Mia/Dora
Miljana Nikolic and Dimitrios Stamatakis are two of the 14 winners of the 'Young Balkan Designers' competition initiated by the Mikser organisation who exhibited their work under the same name at Salone Satellite 2011...
Yorgo Lykouria: Industrial Poet
It's somewhat fitting, given the almost lyric quality of his name, that Canadian-born designer Yorgo Lykouria should be interested in reintroducing the poetic into everyday life. His latest product for premium bathroom brand Alape is a wash basin that eschews preconceived ideas of what such an object type should look like in favour of designing the actual experience of washing, one characterised by quietude and wonder. Meeting up with Lykouria at the recent ISH fair in Frankfurt, Architonic got its hands dirty with some serious design discussion.
Ausstellung „Wir sind alle Astronauten“ - Universum Richard Buckminster Fuller
In Kürze eröffnet eine Ausstellung über Buckminster Fuller im Marta Herford Museum. Gestaltet wurde sie von Sir Norman Foster, der mit Richard Buckminster Fuller zwischen 1968 bis 1983 an verschiedenen Projekten zusammenarbeitete.
Designer Portrait: Studio IVANKA Concrete Works
Concrete has in recent times become a highly popular material for product and furniture design. One of the founders of this trend is Studio IVANKA, which was established in Budapest by Katalin and Andras Ivanka in 2003...
Spectacular Vernacular: contemporary applications of craft-based building methods
There was a time when context was everything in construction. Local materials were transformed by the ambition and skill of the builder into a functional, stylistically appropriate structure. In the face of an, at times seemingly inexorable, movement towards a homogenous, global design language in architecture, a number of architects have recently completed projects that embrace low-tech, craft-based building methods to add real environmental and cultural value.
The Milan Four: Jean Nouvel
In the first of four interviews from the 2011 Milan Salone Internazionale del Mobile with four very different figures from the creative world – an internationally celebrated architect, a grand master of Italian design, a strongly concept-led designer and a leading manufacturer – Architonic meets Jean Nouvel, Pritzker-Prize-winning architect of such projects as the Torre Agbar in Barcelona and Paris's Fondation Cartier, as well as designer of a growing body of highly considered furniture and lighting pieces.
A look back at ISH Frankfurt 2011 – Living in a spa
The bathroom is an environment which doesn't only adapt constantly to the changes dictated by design and fashion, but has also been revolutionised in a technical sense.
At ISH 2011 in Frankfurt Architonic went on the track of the latest developments and trends in innovative bathroom design.
Neo Geo: geodesic construction in contemporary architecture
The principles of geodesic construction were developed by the pioneering American architect and engineer R Buckminster Fuller in the middle of the last century as part of his efforts to use science and technology to address universal issues. His vision has inspired successive generations of architects and geodesic designs have played a fundamental role in defining the architectural landscape of the past few decades. Architonic takes a look at some recent projects that combine the brilliance of Buckyʼs ideas with twenty-first century technology, resulting in complex yet efficient structures with a futuristic aesthetic.
Design Miami/ Basel 2011
For the first time since it was founded in 2005, Design Miami/ Basel was this year under the new direction of Marianne Goebl, who curated the trade fair with an expert eye. In February 2011 she followed in the footsteps of Ambra Medda who, after splitting up with her partner Craig Robbins, also lost her commitment to her position as director of their joint baby, as was indicated at last year's press conference.
The Milan Four: Alessandro Mendini
In the second of our series of four interviews with four leading design figures from this year's Milan Furniture Fair, Architonic meets Alessandro Mendini – designer, architect, writer, theorist and all-round provocateur. Mendini, who turns 80 this year, discusses, among other things, the importance of irony, the increasing lack of polemic in design, and why certain detractors of the 1980s postmodern Memphis movement might be talking 'bullshit'.
Switched On: Benjamin Hubert
'Awards come and go,' says Benjamin Hubert. 'They're not a mark of good design, that's for sure.' You'd be forgiven for thinking that there's more than a touch of false modesty or disingenuity at work here, given the celebratory press coverage the young British designer received a couple of years ago, not to mention the numerous plaudits. But not so. In a recent interview with Architonic, Hubert reveals himself to be as pragmatic and self-aware as he is creative.
Trade Fair Review: Euroshop Duesseldorf, The Global Retail Trade Fair, 26.2. - 2.3.2011
More and more prestigious manufacturers of up-market design products participated in this year's EuroShop, a clear indication of the significant international role of this Düsseldorf trade fair. As a result this successful trade fair is a model of what the retail industry is looking for - increased growth and high turnover levels.
Death by Architecture
Shuffling off this mortal coil is something we all, sadly, have to do. There's no opting out. But while mortality might be a great leveller, a number of architects have shown recently how designing environments that process death – be it in practical or psychological terms – can be elevated above the uninspired builds that we've been used to, which have all to easily embraced historicism or, perhaps worse, anonymity. Architonic presents a selection of projects that put some life back into designing for the dead.
