Scrap wood installation at DreamBags JaguarShoes in London
October, 9 2012 • 10:00
DreamBags JaguarShoes is a local bar in Shoreditch (East London) which ‘rents out’ its space to artists and designers for temporary installations. During the London Design Festival, East London Furniture completely took over the bar, removed all furniture and replaced it with scrap materials found on the local streets. Tables made from pallets and ceiling joists, benches inspired by Shaker furniture, skirting boards used for the throne-like seating booth, lightings made from recycled wooden blocks. Christian Dillon, one of the East London Furniture designers, says “For us to have a show in the festival, where people are actually using the furniture to have a nice meal, a nice beer or chatting to a nice girl or guy is so much more interesting than a static display of our furniture”. The installation will be there for the next two months. What are you waiting for, go and have a drink at the DreamBags JaguarShoes! via Deezen
Not Wonder Store by Reiichi Ikeda
October, 5 2012 • 10:00
Japanese fashion brand Wonderland asked designer Reiichi Ikeda to create a shop inside the Not Wonder Store in Osaka. What came out was a small wooden house, surrounded by bare walls, simple wooden rails and tables. The use of bare timber makes the shop seem unfinished, though the minimalist design makes it spacious and airy. Photographer: Yoshiro Masuda Photographer: Yoshiro Masuda Photographer: Yoshiro Masuda The inspiration for this design comes from the designer’s feeling that the inside and outside of the shop has no defined borders, thus maximising the effect of the existing elements.

The new Aesop shop in London
October, 4 2012 • 10:00
Aesop, the famous Australian beauty shop dedicated to hair, skin and body, has opened its fourth concept store in collaboration with Ciguë in the trendy Islington area in London.Ciguë, a group of six Parisian architects, recreated a traditional 1930s laboratory with metal shelves, the floors and cabinets made from wood sourced from a 200-year-old French monastery in the Basque countryside, the basins and work surfaces finished with polished marble. All in all, the ambience created by Ciguë has a logical and pragmatic space design, which adds to the modest simplicity concept that has become a signature in Aesop’s shops. I LOVE AESOP STORE!

Critter: the new topwork for Skitsch
September, 26 2012 • 10:00
"Critter is a free standing worktop which typologically stands in between a traditional kitchen and a primus stove kitchen. In the attempt to innovate by forecasting future scenarios, Critter undermines one of the last bulwark of the static domestic landscape.Infact even though this kitchen was born to be easily moved around and used outdoor, Critter winks at the house, looking forward to replace his domestic cousins"- Elia Mangia The main structure is made by two beams of solid wood on which are assembled the legs and a series of freely interchangable modular accessories. The whole kitchen is completely demountable in a few fast and easy steps and is kept together by only 8 screws. Elia Mangia is working together with Italian design company Skitsch to develop Critter for sale in the coming months.
