INTERNATIONAL DESIGN/GRAPHIC RESOURCE

THE CITY DWELLER And the Urban Habitat

An online publication by

Issue 4 May 2012


E’s NOTE

Imagine a place where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of our fast-paced lifestyle. An environment that takes you away from the noise and pollution that are inextricable from our daily grind. A place where you can find solace after mindless traffic, hectic schedules and countless meetings... Now, imagine this place at the comfort of your own home in our urban community. This is what we would like to show you, our readers, in this magazine. The focus of this issue evolves around the value of existential art and the importance of design in defining your lifestyle. As we all know, more and more high rise condos are being built in the city as a product of our urbanization, and it is indeed a booming trend as well as the ecosustainability in buildings and products. Many of our brands follow suit on this genesis for ecological attainment be it from Gan Rug, which specializes in hand-crafted designs, to Cinova’s completely natural ecofriendly bed, and much more. You will also find that a limited space should not limit your creativity and ability to integrate your own design concept as an expression of yourself. A small space has just as much potential as Karim Rashid’s New York apartment which is featured in this issue. But let’s not forget that design should not only stay at home, but should be evident everywhere. Bringing design inspiration to your work place is as easy as famous Italian architect and designer, Piero Lissoni, adding another project under his belt. We would like to open your eyes to newer possibilities in the field of ergonomic and innovative home and office design and encourage you not to confine yourself in the recesses of a complex urban space. Being under new management, the team behind the local distributor of Italian super brands, Spazio, is excited to bring a lot of new developments on the table. As we end the first trimester of 2012, we are also looking forward to begin a new journey that we hope would keep you on your toes, as we are on ours. We’re excited for our June issue as it will feature highlights from the recently concluded Milano Fair. As our Veli lamp from Slamp (designed by Adriano Rachele) has been honored the 2012 RedDot Design Award, we expect nothing short of excellent from the new products introduced by our featured brands. Live your best life today. Be bold, live luxuriously. Bubbles Aguilar Editor in Chief

The Prime Mover When a brand decides whose name they want beside their new products, they know they can never go wrong with Italian architect cum designer Piero Lissoni. And these are not just any brands, these are the big brand names of the design industry. His clients are unsurprisingly as internationally renowned as he is. Upon establishing the studio Lissoni Associati with Nicoletta Canesi in 1986, and creating Graph.X in 1996,his projects range from everything related to design such as products, interiors, architectural, corporate identity and more.

“The scope of work for our studio is to be children for our whole lives - it’s a playground.” PIERO LISSONI

IN RETROSPECT A round up of an eventful year of international design, innovation and all of the craziness from the different cities.


REVIEW @ A GLANCE MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2011 A spectacle of unending product of inspirations. The 50th of the most celebrated design week was evident by the fairgrounds packed with people. One of the big names, Kartell, were one of the major highlights because of their presence in the fair with theatrical bright lights. Meanwhile, Kenkoon, an outdoor furniture company from Thailand, shown a much more breezy collection made for the beach with the S collection. As for the Salone Satellite, more aspiring talents were discovered. The light collection by Mooi was presented too.

NEW YORK DESIGN WEEK 2011 The International Contemporary Furniture Fair at the Noho design district featured some independent and student-made products without lacking creativity. The eccentric pieces opposed to the modern, clean lines furniture mostly presented in the Milan fair, were a breath of fresh air with unusual materials and techniques. Like the Vinco chair by Toni Grillo for Corque design. Something extraordinary like the Redemption table by Christopher Kurtz was an example of an uncommon form. While a splash of color was the image of the week long fair, a Brazilian designer Bruno Jahara exhibited the Armรกrio Alto/Mini Closet. Showing diversity at its best.

LONDON DESIGN FESTIVAL 2011 The Timber Wave - a three story wood sculpture by architect Amanda Levete welcomed everyone at the V&A museum. A photographic installation by Mooi incorporated an underwater theme with its furniture collection. Yet a collection of sculptural shoes by Victoria Spruce at the Dezeen Platform gave a high fashion take on design. Not forgetting the design part, this “Pillhead” squashed-head lamp by A+Z Design and a bedside table from the Companions family presented by De Le Espada were both statement pieces as well.

CLERKENWELL DESIGN WEEK 2011 A festival of installations and kaleidescopic colors - proved it was better than a success. Damein Weighill’s illustration for the design week established the mood for the event goers. A Slamp exhibit featuring the new collection, form the Milan fair, such as the Faretto was never been missed. At the same time, the Moody and Woody set by Lievore Altherr Molina for Andreu World were exhibited likewise.

REVIEW @ A GLANCE PARIS DESIGN WEEK 2011 The first of its kind taken after the Maison & Objet, making it another design capital. First in the mix is this Danish craft stand, which there was a lot of, at the Maison&Objet. Alessi also exhibited one of its young designer Pauline Deltour’s minimalistic “A Tempo” stool. And another minimally designed piece the “Casetta 1” cottage box R&D De Castelli with the Kuusi Collection by Anna Karell for Delica. A bright statement at Merci sets the je na sais quoi.

BEIJING DESIGN WEEK 2011 What did the East brought forth in terms of design? A Lot. To begin, the installation Manuscript - a giant poetry by Paul Cocksedge celebrates the Chinese invention. Meanwhile, an infographic “How much water do you eat?” presented to diners was a menu of how much water each ingredient in a recipe needs. As for design, a collection of bamboo made lights by Lasfera and LetThemSitCake! by Dejana Kabiljo made an impression.

You know what there’s not enough of? Expert design information or advice that’s on the go and which is actually reliable. While there are countless sources online, we narrowed down the list to the three - Wallpaper*, Yatzer and Architonic. These sources have come up with their own apps for the iPads, iPhone4s and Android user, which is like having your very own portable designer. First up, Architonic’s Virtual Showroom© App and Product&News App. Both designed for dealers and designers, these apps will help you access over 92,000 products from the Architonic database of furnitures, lights, etc., although you’d still need to have internet access.

THE ITALIAN JOB

MILAN,

WHERE ELSE?

Another exposition at the Milan fairgrounds happened from the 17th to the 22nd of April this year. A carnival of the most prestigious brands and famous designers presents new and fresh products, ideas and innovations at the center of the home and design industry of the whole world. Brands like Arper, Slamp, Fornasetti and more have already shown a preview of the products they will showcase in the upcoming event. Not that it could make us less excited since more and more brands had a sneak peek. Better yet, we are getting enthralled at the selections waiting for everyone. While some brands are going for enhanced technology, some are towards eco sustainability with special materials and a more environment friendly manufacturing process. And this trend goes over the kitchen and bath sector as well. Slamp, the brand of lighting on the other hand, unveiled at the start of the year a few variations of pieces they have added in the collection in the latest Milan fair.

Issue 4 May 2012

A great deal is to be anticipated from the much-awaited event of the design world. Not only the latest products but also the potential talents waiting to be discovered and turn into articleworthy items or better yet, classics. 20

URBAn ART Temporary geometric structures for a regular dose of inspiration, a few footsteps away from wherever you are in the city. And it’s more than just any other street art.


Double Happiness, 2009 - Didier Fiuza Faustino

U

rban art is a term that corresponds to a border between architecture and art, maybe a little more of the latter with added creativity and expression. It’s more than just any other art project - an architectural installation built from the pavement up, designed to move an audience. By that means passers by. But what does it take to move an audience? Let alone passers by who mindlessly walk their way to work or errands. The viewer must then experience and interact with it, unlike an artwork where when it’s plastered on the street mostly in the form of graffiti. Take for example the project Double Happiness by Didier Fiuza Faustino from Mesarchitectures. A billboard converted to a playground staple, the swing, where one, or two, can rediscover space or see the urban habitat in a very different perspective. A could be daredevil stunt for the faint of the heart but definitely a break from routine. Another form is social interaction - think of it as an adult playground of sorts. Like

the project Crater Lake Installation by 24째 Studio in Kobe, Japan. It was designed basically for people to have space where they can meet and interact, observe, be inspired with peers by providing the wooden planks where they could sit, squat and lie down. The structure is made of wood to create sturdiness in the piece while being cost effective. Its fluid form had adults and children alike flock about the 360째 majestic view of the man-made island.

Tape Installation, 2011 - Numenl For Use

Speaking about materials, no one could deny the craftsmanship put into these structures. The discerning public may or may not be easily amazed, which is why for these architects and artists, their first job is to innovate. Only then could they wow us. While social interaction still manifests from this project, Tape Installation by Numenl For Use in Melbourne, its the transformative material, none other than transparent tape, that will catch the attention of anyone. The amorphous form although rather humongous where people can crawl into was assembled without any computer-aided software One must wonder, what are all these bold,

sculptural installations for? Is it all for visual publicity? You should know that to understand the point of a piece, you must exploit your senses and let the creativity sink in. Case in point, the Ring Installation by Arnauld LaPiere & Audi in Paris. Looking through the mirrored cubes, you engage yourself in the morphing of the surrounding environment as well as the sky. The reflections made by the cylindrical form is ever-changing and at times transparent because of the gaps where one reimagines a complex urban space, which has been there for a very long time. Abstract art is a perplexing subject that more or less needs an artist to explain, give an elaborate title or tell its story otherwise viewers have a different take on it. Its subjective judgement lies most of the time in the medium or technique used.

An elegant form such as the Anemone by Oyler Wu Collaborative is an art/architectural installation that at first glance would only invite the eyes. But it was actually built for human interaction. Something as aesthetically pleasing maybe somewhat intimidating seeing it as fragile - finding out it was built with table and benches inside is quite surprising. Throughout the design weeks around the world, urban installations are what mostly welcomes guests. As if they don’t already have a constant supply of inspiration during the exhibitions. When one could not just get enough of the amazingness in the course of Milan design week, Zaha Hadid Architects’ Twirl, in partnership with Lea Ceramiche, fabricated a contemporary project exploring courtyard architecture. The undulating geometric panels have voids where visitors

entitled 3013. The project brief looks into the near future of London’s urban landscape where everything will expand inwards and upwards. Thus they study how the inhabitants can adapt to a more compact and vertical space. To address this conclusion, they weaved together recycled plywood strips, which were suspended and twisted from the terrace down, creating a multilevel like environment - probably permanent in the future.

When working on a large scale project, one cannot justify it as something done for fun. As a rule, the artist or designer ought to have a certain profound meaning or a long narrative of how an idea was conceptualized or brought to form. For instance, the students of Architectural Association in Not every single installation travels. Just London recently constructed an installation imagine the inconvenience of transporting

a tremendous structure. Yet the project Crystal City Mind by Coordination Berlin teamed up with diephotodesigner for a literally moving piece. This “multi-faceted design object” was toured from Berlin to London and other cities around the world. The photographs produced were theatrical set amidst the different urban spaces and skylines. In addition, as it was going to be part of the exhibit “Citizens of Berlin: 20 years of creativity”, the project portrayed the unique and undeniable Berlin design. Unlike

a form assembled suspended from the ground already may not be remade in a different framework bearing in mind that it was built site specific, which makes installations more precious. These are nonpermanent structures that transforms an urban setting. In particular, Xtra Moenia by SOFTlab in New York, served as not less than the North Gate during the San Gennaro Festival. It is a vivid, translucent, canopy-like piece hanged from the surrounding buildings. Afar it’s mostly non-interactive but it is indeed. There is still something to experience, installation, although it’s from below. Nonetheless the

outdoor installation is extraordinary. Another temporary installation produced for a holiday, Frozen Trees by Like Architects in Lisbon. Set for the holiday season, the lighting expanding across the Rossi square illuminating the street giving a Christmas ambience. How would one say an architectural installation is successful? It is when the visitors enjoyed them and appreciate it as an addition of the urban space. People approached, peeked into and interact with the individual and collective pieces of this specific project. That being the case, it did not only became effective on spreading the holiday cheer but also became history. Dealing with a public piece, may it be either an architectural installation or just street art. One can’t help to go into the sublime. A surreal piece like the Eye by Tony Tasset is not a typical interactive project or

playground. What it does is it engages you as a viewer. You come as an unsolicited audience by being a mere pedestrian but with this piece, one cannot help to look away and just wow. The thirty-foot tall eyeball was in the Pritzer park - quite disturbing and creepy for some though since it either makes you do an eye staring contest or get goosebumps from the fact that it will somehow follow you in your sleep. These are projects that literally come and go. Unlike the buildings and homes the following architectural firms worked on, these are made to be phenomenal. Another platform, a complex mix of values where they just the same build with architectural discipline but an artist’s expression. Lead people to break free from the gritty once in a while, transition from the routine, or a change of perspective in their average habitat - the urban city.
