I’ve been thinking about bringing back the Spindle Bracelet but in another form: 3D Printing! I loved the original wooden version but because of assembly time it resulted in a very small run before I became burnt out on putting them together. Here are the first printed prototypes and they turned out really good. Some minor tweaks need to be done to the files and then I will order a small run of the red and black to start.
Parachilna Aballs lighting collection by Jaime Hayon
Hayon is consistently a genius designer and his latest collection is nothing short of that as well.
Cross Stitch House by FMD Architects
A beautiful transformation of a house in Melbourne.
Frame Furniture by Luis Pons Design Lab
Stunning furniture utilizing a simple idea but with great effect.
I have been slowly working on a sculptural light fixture for over our kitchen island, and thought I would share the progress.Â The first prototype above was done in steel and brass and I was very happy with the results. However, it weighed far too much since the plan was to cantilever it from a wood base. So I reconstructed all of the brass parts that you see with aluminum instead to lightweight it.Â Above is the reconstructed version after a coat of gloss black. The branch is about 4 feet long so it cantilevers quite a bit. I’m really happy with how it turned out. You can also see the wood base. I’m going to trim a little off of the wood vertical down rod, but I purposely wanted it to be long. The branch attaches with a brass swivel. All that is left is to disassemble it, wire all the components and put it back together, do some touch up painting and then hardwire the fixture.
La Concha House by MOOARC
I’m seeing more and more modern houses utilizing large stone: most of them occurring through remodeling an older building (as in this case a 15th century barn). The result is nothing short of perfection.
Console table by Fedele Papagni
An amazing post-war table that is very relevant with the current nucleus trends we are seeing.
Maria Chair by Raul Herrera Téllez
Inspired by the traditional Mexican dress this is a visually stunning chair. I’m a little thrown off by the similarities to a Papasan chair (college dorm day nightmares!) but that is hardly an issue and certainly wouldn’t keep me from drooling over this beauty.
Beauty Light (working title) by EVRT
Amongst the many things I am working on at once, trying to keep the design & creativity juices flowing outside of my day job, most of what I am developing is lighting. Which is something I have always dreamed of getting into.
Here is a concept light which developed out of my love for photography and especially vintage photography equipment. Directly influenced by the folding flashes that existed long ago like the Honeywell pictured.
I’ve taken first steps in prototyping it which will ultimately be a laser cut folded metal shade in stainless steel. Next steps are to prototype the wood base.
Tiny House by Jessica Helgerson Interior Design
Being from a farm town in the center of the country, I occasionally (rarely) am attracted to a more traditional interior. This little shack just looks inviting. Love the white wood walls and green roof.
