Conran and Partners Celebrate the Centenary of the Iconic Cola Bottle

Posted on March 3, 2015 by Robert

Conran and Partners recently collaborated with Coca-Cola to honour the 100th anniversary of the iconic contour bottle. They created a striking installation at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, featuring a unique ribbon interpretation of the bottle created by 3D printing methods with the brand Shapeways.

Over 500 of these ribbon bottles were hung from the ceiling to create a stunning display that not only commemorated the global brand but also exists as a visual art piece in its own right.

Since its creation in 1915, the Coca-Cola contour bottle has become a design symbol of the 20th Century and has had an outstanding impact on visual art and culture. To celebrate 100 years since its inception, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta is exploring the bottle’s iconic design and creative legacy.

‘The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100′ exhibition features more than 100 objects, including works of art by Andy Warhol, inspired photographs, original design illustrations and historical artifacts.

BUSTER + PUNCH X JUSTIN DEAKIN

Posted on February 20, 2015 by Robert

 AW15 DESIGN COLLABORATION LONDON FASHION WEEK

Buster and Punch are a London based interiors brand known for their craftsmanship and uncompromising passion for making products they love, including lighting, furniture and limited editions. Justin Deakin is arguably one of the country’s top shoe designers and also a passionate supporter of British craftsmanship, choosing to work with English factories and materials whenever possible.

So the WIN Team was very excited when they announced an exclusive London Fashion Week collaboration at Somerset House. In celebration of their shared passion for music, motorbikes and the art of making, these two British designers epitomise daring craftsmanship through innovative fashion design.

The installation features a strictly limited edition leather light shade and biker boot, both made from the finest quilted Italian calf leather with solid metal and rubber detailing.

Buster + Punch work with rare, solid materials to make extraordinary items for everyday use. The collaboration highlights their design and manufacturing skills to make unexpected accessory items that unite both the interior & fashion industries.

‘Since the day we opened the doors to the public, our main aim was to drag the sluggish interiors world out of the front door and onto our streets and catwalks alike. This exciting collaboration represents the first steps towards us achieving this goal and we will be wearing great boots along the way!.’ – Massimo Buster Minale

Win Awards in 2015

Posted on January 23, 2015 by Liz

A New Year can bring new opportunities, a chance to inspire and amaze others, to break the mould and to create something original and unique. What better way to start the New Year and celebrate your accomplishments than by entering the World Interiors News Awards?

The WIN Awards programme provides a platform that allows architectural and design firms to receive maximum exposure for their progressive projects and products, showcasing them to our readership of nearly a quarter of a million architects, developers, designers, contractors and consultants.

Last year’s WIN Awards attracted 610 entries from 459 companies across 53 countries. It was a pleasure to review each and every one of those submissions and many of our judges felt the same way. For the 2015 WIN Awards, I will be handing over this fantastic task to our brand new Awards Coordinator Robert Stuart, while I head off to explore the remarkable interiors (and exteriors!) of South America.

Entry into the awards is just £250. However, register before the 16th March and you’ll receive a generous 20% discount on this fee. For further information and more details on how to submit your project, head to our website or contact Steven Penney steven.penney@worldinteriorsnews.com or Robert Stuart robert.stuart@worldinteriorsnews.com.

For now, I’m going to leave you with a few inspirational images of just some of the stunning projects that landed at the WIN news desk and captivated our readers over the past year – I hope that they get your creative juices flowing. I also look forward to seeing all of your new projects and products featured on World Interiors News soon!

Sleep: The Hotel Design Event

Posted on December 10, 2014 by Liz

“Sleep is like a precious watch in which all the hand-crafted elements rotate around one another to create a unique piece that perfectly tells the time – in our case ensuring our exhibitors do great business and our visitors are inspired.” Kali Nicholson, Brand Director for Sleep.

Exhibitor Stands at Sleep 2014

Nicholson has encapsulated the experience of this year’s Sleep Event perfectly, in fact it was one of the most brilliantly executed shows our team had the pleasure of attending this year. We jam-packed everything into one day; attending inspiring conference sessions with some of the industry’s most respected designers and hoteliers; exploring over 150 exhibitor stands, finding out more about the companies whose products and services help to create award-winning hotels; and checking out the daring and innovative designs entered into the highly anticipated Sleep Set competition.

The Royale Agricultural Bar, Sleep 2014

The team also enjoyed drinks at The Royale Agricultural Bar, designed by Swedish firm Stylt Trampoli who created a lush, tropical oasis of flora and fauna from which to escape the busy crowds. We took another opportunity to relax during the day by trying out a mycoocoon pod. Here we were asked to pick our favourite scent from three options and answered a colour and mood based quiz to determine the programme we would experience. We then stretched out in the pod and were immersed in the glow of a specially programmed lighting display whilst listening to soothing music – bliss!

mycoocoon, Sleep 2014

Back to the spectacular conference sessions; we were entirely enchanted by restaurateur extraordinaire Jeremy King, currently distilling his magic into his first hotel, The Beaumont. King refuses to impose concepts on buildings. Instead he works with a space to reveal its potential and accentuates already-there qualities in his designs. He still insists on walking the tables, wishing to always be known as restaurateur and never simply a ‘restaurant owner’. For a restaurant to be a success he believes it must have heart and soul, presented through long-lasting interiors and by devoted staff. Design must never ‘shout for attention, but should withstand scrutiny’, and at the end of the day, it’s about the people. We have no doubt that The Beaumont will be as successful as all of his other ventures.

Conference with Jouin Manku, Sleep 2014

Jouin Manku told of the story behind their design partnership – a chance meeting in Paris, and one of those ‘meant-to-be’ situations that has produced a dynamic, collaborative and ever-changing creative office. The duo complement each other harmoniously, describing their working relationship as ‘like playing free jazz. You don’t know who made the melody, who made the bass, it’s just a response’. These ‘realistic dreamers’ respond to each other and to the spaces they work with and believe that ‘you can do anything, you just have to want to do it’. A very encouraging conviction indeed!

Room Four by NoChintz, Sleep 2014

Finally, we listened to the Sleep Set competitors explain their design ideas to the judges, with just five minutes each to present. We particularly enjoyed NoChintz’s model that utilised playful features such as temporary tattoos and takeaway coffee cups to promote the hotel, whilst also connecting it to local businesses and allowing visitors to explore the area. This year however, it was industry outsiders, SKM Design, who triumphed with a design inspired by a Pink Floyd album cover and featuring a double sided wardrobe and floating bed!

Room Three by SKM Design (winning design), Sleep 2014

Keep an eye out for our hotel-themed INSIDE newsletter this week, and to all the hotel designers out there, make sure to enter your projects into next year’s World Interiors News Awards, opening on 5th January! To Sleep, thank you – we are very much looking forward to next year’s event.

Two Days to Sleep!

Posted on November 24, 2014 by Liz

If you thought things had quietened down at the WIN office following our Awards night, you’d definitely be mistaken! We’ve been busy attending copious meetings in London as well as making sure certificates safely reached those entrants who could not be with us on the night, putting together a very special edition of INSIDE (out early December) and, of course, preparing for the WIN Awards 2015. There are some exciting things happening next year, so watch this space!

Curiousa & Curiousa, Exhibitors at Sleep 2014

We’re also excited as Sleep 2014 will be opening its doors this week at London’s Business Design Centre. For two days, an exceptional array of ground-breaking ideas and newly launched products will be on offer for architects, designers, specifiers, hotel operators, owners and developers with an eye on future trends.

FRONT London, Exhibitors at Sleep 2014

WIN will be heading up on Wednesday to join other press members in the morning, before having a nosy around the place and catching up with friends. We’re extremely excited about the Conference programme this year, packed with inspiring and informative talks from a plethora of industry professionals including Afroditi Krassa and Conrad Smith, who helped to judge the WIN Awards 2014. Conrad also happens to be judging the Sleep Set competition – we can’t wait to find out who the winning team is whilst having a drink or two in the ‘Royale Agricultural Bar’, designed by Award-winning studio Stylt Trampoli, with contractor Famos Scandinavia AB.

Ultrafabrics, Exhibitors at Sleep 2014

Every exhibition stand has been sold out this year. The latest we’ve heard on participating exhibitors is that FRONT London will be returning for a second year with a new bespoke collection of luxurious nature-inspired rug designs and Moroccan Bazaar will make their debut with a select range of finely handcrafted lighting and accessories. Additionally, UK lighting designer and manufacturer Curiousa & Curiousa will also debut with striking contemporary hand-blown glass lights and Ultrafabrics will present its high quality synthetic leather products.

Moroccan Bazaar, Exhibitors at Sleep 2014

We will of course report back on everything next week. If you’re attending please make sure to say hello!

World Interiors News Annual Awards Dinner 2014

Posted on November 5, 2014 by Liz

The WIN Team can’t quite believe it but this year’s World Interiors News Awards are officially over! We ended on a high, celebrating at our annual event held at the Saatchi Gallery on 30 October. Numerous cocktails were consumed, fantastic food devoured, new friends made and our extraordinarily talented winners were announced.

All that’s left to say is a huge thank you to everybody involved and to all who joined us for what was definitely a very memorable and incredibly exciting evening. We’d like to pay a special thanks to our sponsors; first of all our headline sponsor Poliform (see their beautiful installation from the night below!) and not forgetting Duravit, OVI and Fever-tree, your support this year has been utterly indispensable.

Please enjoy the photos and we’ll see you next year!

‘Roma Phantasma’ at The House of Peroni

Posted on October 15, 2014 by Liz

If you’re looking for a new exhibition or show to visit this October, why not check out what’s going on over at The House of Peroni? Innovative lighting design studio Baroncelli have taken up residency at one of the House’s bi-annual month long pop-ups, celebrating contemporary Italian culture with an immersive room of art, design and lighting.

‘Roma Phantasma’ by Baroncelli at The House of Peroni

Giovanni Corrado, Creative Director of Baroncelli, was one of a number of talented individuals invited this year to design an immersive room within the House, reflecting and portraying its theme: Rome, the birth place of Peroni Nasstro Azzuro.

‘Roma Phantasma’ by Baroncelli at The House of Peroni

Baroncelli’s exclusive installation ‘Roma Phantasma’ is an unorthodox and atmospheric landscape. Utilising the component parts that make the modular Flexus lighting system, Baroncelli have created several limited edition sculptural mechanisms including a timepiece, catapult, pulley, airscrew, microscope and compass. Mounted on the walls and ceilings of the room, these mechanisms are layered and interweaved around etched scenic drawings to create a 3D installation which interprets the strength, volume and engineering prowess of neoclassical Rome and showcases the studio’s trademark for expert metal and glass work used within the structure of their pieces.

The Microscope I by Baroncelli

Timepiece I by Baroncelli

When approaching the brief for this creative project, Corrado looked to his passion for art history for inspiration and to 16th century artist Piranesi, famous for his etchings of the city and of his atmospheric imaginary interior ‘prisons’, Carceri d’Invenzione.

‘Roma Phantasma’ by Baroncelli at The House of Peroni

Taking Piranesi as a point of inspiration and drawing on the design studio’s extensive expertise in working with a variety of materials and processes, Corrado’s vision has led to the creation of ‘Roma Phantasma’. Handmade to the highest quality of craftsmanship and engineering; glass, satin gold metal, cristallo rods and LED light interplay with the etchings to create a striking, dramatic and alternative view of Rome, a fantastical Rome visitors can construct in their mind and travel to.

‘Roma Phantasma’ by Baroncelli at The House of Peroni

The House of Peroni is open to visit and free of charge to all 18+ until the end of the month. The limited edition sculptural mechanisms showcased within the House will be available to purchase POA from Baroncelli from October 31st 2014.

designjunction presents ‘A Child’s Dream’

Posted on September 17, 2014 by Liz

designjunction has launched an exciting exhibition for 2014 in order to raise funds for Teddy’s Wish, a charity that aids research into the causes behind SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), neonatal death and stillbirth and supports grieving families. This is in collaboration with distinguished family-run British brands Anglepoise® and ercol, who have kindly donated the products used in the project.

‘A Child’s Dream’ invited 19 of the UK’s leading designers from the field of architecture, design, fashion and graphics to customise the iconic Anglepoise® Type75™ Mini desk lamp and Stacking chair, from ercol’s Originals collection. These are to be displayed this week at designjunction2014 in an exhibition curated by British designer Anthony Dickens.

The line-up of designers behind the uniquely interpreted products is an all-star cast, including; Tom Dixon, Wilkinson Eyre, Benjamin Hubert, PearsonLloyd, Paul Cocksedge, Ab Rogers, Sir Terence Conran, Topshop, Tony Chambers, Samuel Wilkinson, Faye Toogood, Kristjana S. Williams, Michael Sodeau, Donna Wilson, Afroditi Krassa, Bethan Gray, Rachel Galbraith, Philippe Moulin and Emma Mawston. Some of the designers comment on their superb end-creations below.

Afroditi Krassa on ‘Drip Chair’: “We may dream and plan as much as we want but life is unpredictable and we wanted to capture this and translate it onto a chair. Using clinical apparatus and colored dyes we have left it to gravity, time and chance to embellish the chair.”

Samuel Wilkinson: “We wanted to create an intervention that highlighted the beauty of the ercol Stacking Chair, something fantastical and unexpected as if from a Child’s dream. The result is the representation of a magic fabled animal, a chair that gives you happy and playful thoughts when you see it.”

Paul Cocksedge: “The lights only come on when the two heads touch each other, and whichever way you position them for that touch, it will stir a visual memory of a child nuzzling up to its mother. It can be seen not only with humans, but across the natural world… This reconfiguration of the classic Anglepoise taps into the imagination whereby everyday objects take on human attributes, in this case to embody a gesture of caring and affection that is universal.”

Wilkinson Eyre Architects: “When thinking about the title ‘a child’s dream’ the first thing that springs to mind is colour. How bright and vibrant a child’s dream might be, full of bold colours and shapes and a great innocence. We have focused on those bold colours and shapes in an irregular, sporadic fashion, bringing playfulness and purity to the lamp.”

Topshop: ‘There should be a place where only the things you want to happen, happen.’ (Where the Wild Things Are) “When we are young, the jungle is a mysterious place, a realm of adventure and the imagination.  For our chair, we wanted to reference the magical worlds that you can disappear to in dreams.”

Ab Rogers, A Child’s Dream. Photo Credit Ruth Ward.

All funds raised will go directly to Teddy’s Wish, including ticket entry for the show. The lamps and chairs will be available to buy online through silent auction at thedesignjunction.co.uk/charity from 12 September until midday on Sunday 28 September 2014.

 

Granting Wishes in the Design World

Posted on September 2, 2014 by Liz

Instigated by Sir Terence Conran and initiated by the American Hardwood Export Council and Benchmark Furniture, ‘The Wish List – What I have always wanted is…’ has assembled several illustrious architects and designers together with emerging new talents to create a compelling installation, The Wish List, which will be exhibited at the V&A Museum during the London Design Festival this month.

The Wish List: Alex de Rijke ‘Table Turned’, Petr Krejci Photography

The project invited up-and-coming designers and studios to use only American hardwood in the creation of an object commissioned by an established figure in the architecture and design industry. The brief for each was a response from Conran’s friends within the industry to the significant question: “What have you always wanted in your home, but never been able to find?”

The Wish List: Norman Foster ‘tulipifera sharpeners’, Petr Krejci Photography

The Wish List: Allen Jones ‘The Hole Chair’, Petr Krejci Photography

Led by Conran himself, the incredible line-up includes celebrated architects Richard and Ab Rogers, Norman Foster, Amanda Levete, Alison Brooks, Zaha Hadid, Alex de Rijke and John Pawson, not forgetting artist Allen Jones and fashion designer Paul Smith. All have given their answers and the resulting objects have been created with their mentorship and under the watchful eye and guidance of Benchmark’s master craftsmen.

The Wish List: Terence Conran ‘Getting away from it all’, Petr Krejci photography

Sir Terence Conran has commissioned sustainable designer Sebastian Cox to create a workspace for his office. When asked about the brief given to him, Sebastian commented: “It’s going to be a space that Terence can work in without distractions. It’ll be a cocoon-like desk with cabinet space around. A space for undistracted creative thought.”

The Wish List: Zaha Hadid ‘Ves-el’, Petr Krejci Photography

The Wish List: Paul Smith ‘Paul’s Shed’, Petr Krejci Photography

Award winning architect, Zaha Hadid has always wanted tableware made from wood. Upon receiving this brief, Gareth Neal has chosen to play with the form of a carafe or water carrier and turn it into something more sculptural. Meanwhile, designer Sir Paul Smith has requested a shed from bespoke furniture designer, Nathalie de Leval. Not just any shed, ‘My Shed’ – a request befitting of any man. When asked about his brief Paul Smith said, “Really the inspiration behind the design was to create somewhere where you can go to switch off, somewhere to relax. In today’s world where everyone is so busy, I think this is really important and very needed.”

The Wish List: Alison Brooks ‘A stool for the kitchen’, Petr Krejci Photography

The Wish List: Amanda Levete ’6×500′, Petr Krejci Photography

The architect for the new extension at the V&A, Amanda Levete, has requested a reversible shallow fruit or cheese bowl from student, Win Assakul. Levete explains, “We often have dinners at home for 18 people. Our table is 4.8m long and I have always wanted a long, shallow bowl to run almost the length of the table. But for smaller dinners of say 6 –12 people, I don’t want such a long bowl. By making it extendable we resolve this.” The piece is inspired by African wooden bowls that reveal the beauty and depth of the wood grain as well as the hand of the maker.

The Wish List: John Pawson ‘Room’, Petr Krejci Photography

The open brief has clearly resulted in an extraordinary spread of design objects, also including kitchen stools, a trio of room fittings, a pencil sharpener, chaise longue, dining table and ladder. These can be seen during LDF (13-21 September) at the V&A – WIN will definitely be swinging by to take a closer look!

Crazy for Clerkenwell

Posted on May 27, 2014 by Liz

WIN certainly were busy last week – along with the rest of the design world we’re sure! Following May Design came the incredible Clerkenwell Design Week, celebrating its fifth birthday in inimitable style. We were delighted to be invited to the press breakfast, where we quickly fuelled up on coffee and croissants before sprinting across Farringdon to visit the multiple Exhibition areas playing host to countless talented designers and creatives. From industry favourites and big name brands to quirky start-ups and fresh faces, all definitely impressed with innovative designs, inspiring ideas and a clear passion for their industry (and all very willing to talk to us about this passion, which was great!)

We were guided through the various areas by the lovely Elspeth Rae, Marketing Manager at Clerkenwell, with boundless enthusiasm and energy. Design Factory, Platform and Detail were outstanding as always, and new for 2014 came Additions, a wonderful collection of small design items and accessories, particularly enjoyable for stationary enthusiasts such as myself. The installations truly wowed and the overall programme of talks, exhibitions and workshops was a captivating affair. With cocktails around every corner, what’s not to love about this exceptional, dynamic and super fun event?!

First, as usual, some quick personal snaps of the event before our top product picks.
