It sounds like the morning after a bender with a few drinks too many. However, if you ask Berkeley California-based Gregory Kloehn it can be a regular morning ritual. Gregory managed to fit an entire home in a dumpster. And, in line with Bay Area standards (at least to my knowledge from living there back in the late Nineties) the home is fit with hardwood floors and granite counter tops. In this video Gregory tells us all.
This truly magnificent 201 x 145 cm folding screen is part of the Limited Edition collection of design label Boca do Lobo (Wolf´s mouth). The large golden pebbles are actually fiberglass painted gold in a high gloss varnish. It doesn’t come cheap at € 13.900 but boy, I love it!
Gold folding screen by Boca do Lobo
This wonderfully designed wall mounted bioalcohol fireplace caught my eye.
It is kitsch and sleek at the same time, making it timeless already.
Mazzeto Blanco by Redwitz
It’s designed by German design duo Redwitz, headed by Sylvia and Lukas Redwitz. Their own website describes their work as follows:
Sylvia and Lukas Redwitz design objects deeply rooted in the tradition of their craft while using their very own language of form. Their aim is to always seize the essence of an object. The two designers are concerned with the entire process of making: from the concept and design of an object to its production and finishing. Due to this creative process their unique style is developed: minimal and distinct.
