MONKEY LAMPS Made of resin and finished by hand, the Monkey Lamps depict a monkey in three different positions, exploring the environment while clutching a LED bulb: a new and alternative way of conceiving lighting. Monkeys are very reminiscent of men: that’s why I have often proposed them in my sculptural works. In the version for SELETTI, they sneak into our house: “I like to think they are stealing those bulbs, which are not at all to our service but they have removed some chandeliers in an undisturbed house. My production is inspired by the relationships between man and nature. I aim for a simple result but also ironic. I prefer the concepts that make people think with irony.”

HELP

Help is a new type of drug company, a drug company that promises you less. Everybody in the drug aisle likes to talk about more, bigger, extra, super, and maximum. But we’re not going to talk about more, bigger, super, or maximum. We think people get enough drugs, dyes, and nonsense from other kinds of drug companies. Help® is a new type of drug company—a drug company that promises you less. HELPINEEDHELP.COM

Treat each job as if it is the most important and do it to the best of your ability. Because to the client it is the most important job,” says Hathaway. Being the first freelance makeup artist to represent MAC, she relocated to London and her unique style lead her to work with some of the greatest photographers throughout Europe including Mario Testino. Wanting to expand even further and being a visionary of her time, Hathaway collaborated to create some of fashion’s most iconic moments while exclusively using only MAC products – something that was highly unheard of at the time. She later returned to New York after working with many renowned personalities like Princess Diana. With a firmly established name in the fashion world, she has worked on various campaigns and shows for designers and industry giants like Estee Lauder, Clinique, and Sephora, as well as various celebrities. Her signature style of precision spans from polished all the way to avant-garde, and her attitude of always approaching the next project with the same passion as her first keeps her creative vision as fresh as ever.

The Bear Garage houses over 70 rare Bearbricks collectables, containing 51 1000% Bearbricks, two 400% Bearbricks, and a large KAWS sculpture. The exhibition also has a designed L-shaped cabinet that takes up two of the garages walls to display the collectables. Each Bearbrick, large and miniature version, is placed under an illuminated LED spotlight and on a raised platform. The sloping surface is designed to trick the eye into thinking that the bears decrease in size along the wall. The garage features a long window that enables the Bearbricks display to be viewed from the living room. The “Bear Garage” is open with large angled walkways and is a dream for diehard Bearbrick collectors. ONION.CO.TH

LIEPÄ€JA THERMAL BATH Steven Christensen Architecture


“THIS IS AN ECOSYSTEM, A DREAM WORLD I WANT TO EXPLORE. MYSTERIOUS AND COMPELLING. THE AESTHETICS OF THIS PROJECT SET ITSELF APART.” - AIA NEXTLA JURY


An interest in the formal association of the dome throughout architectural history and its role within the typology of the public bath is inspiration for the design for the LiepÄ ja Thermal Bath. Playing a huge role in the most technologically innovative Roman bathing structures as well as countless Renaissance and Baroque precedents, the dome has been an important device for organization and representation throughout the history of the public bath. The dome’s roles in all of these structures are closely aligned by reinforcing centrality and singularity. This form renders, unmistakably, the importance of the circle of the space directly below. The representational efficiency of the dome has made it a favourite for people with an interest in reinforcing the idea of a centralized and singular power system. The design of the LiepÄ ja Thermal Bath seeks to change the conventional symbolic performance of the critical world we live in by challenging its desire to move towards the center as well as its bias towards hierarchy. Maximizing the connection of the intersection of the spherical forms and the unique spaces between them, the project combines a sociopolitical conceptual foundation and an unorthodox spatial experience resulting in something that is both spirited and atmospheric.
