Winning proposal by US-based architects ‘Oppenheim Architecture + Design’ Desert lodges & resort in Wadi Rum, Jordan – slated for completion in 2014 The architectonic lodges will be carved directly into the cliff face utilising the existing geological geometries of the rock to devise the form with an intentionally primal elegance “Here, where desert sand meets desert stone, we devise a new contract between man and nature. To live in harmony with the natural world, we must learn how to re-engage the land.”

Material Mimickers

Design Industry is a collection of ceramic tiles from Italian manufacturer Refin.

Organic Forms


Architects & Interior Designers embrace organic forms and natural rhythms - turning away from the tendency towards the regularity of straight lines and the conformity of boxes  Sinuous, undulating, slatted panels and layers create graceful curving motions. A visual softness is created within the confines of ‘the box’. Pertinent interior examples include: -The Graffiti Café in Bulgaria by Mode Design Studio -Sensualscaping Stairs by Atmos Studio -BanQ restaurant in Boston extensively incorporating Plyboo Bamboo Plywood

Theatre In The Round


The ‘chefs table’ phenomenon sees kitchens begin to move from the back of the house and instead be placed more prominently in open plan living spaces. And this is also the catalyst for a change in shape from rectangular to a curvaceous, inviting ‘theatre in the round’. It is a complete rethink of how we prepare, cook, eat and experience food together

Bio Lace, part of the design research project of Carole Collet, is an example of a grown material proposition. Collet asks if food & textile production can be combined (biofacturing). Creating plants that replace textile machinery (addressing issues associated with population boom projections) might be possible by reprogramming plants at a cellular level to create hybrid plants that produce both fruit & vitamin rich textiles from the roots
