SALONE DEL MOBILE 2014 PREVIEW

I'm all Xcited, for next week i'll be visiting my favourite designers and be surprised by all the new developments at the Salone. Below showing a few beautiful furniture pieces of Jaime Hayon. One of the most influential creators of the last decade and the youngest person ever to receive the accolade. His unique style blurs the lines between art, decoration and design. His sculptures are eye-catching..to say the least. Jaime will be part of the Ventura Galleries & Garages in Via Ventura, Via Massimiano and Via Sbodio.

INALUXE

Spring has sprung! so i think: Inaluxe. Inaluxe is a small design team consisting of Kristina Sostarko and Jason Odd. Their design philosophy is simple : Make it beautiful, use the best materials possible, and be responsible and sustainable in production practice. It is very important for us to feel great about what we do, therefore we only print on the best archival fine art papers, in combination with a professional giclee reproduction print process. We believe in quality over quantity.

WE MAKE CARPETS

WE MAKE CARPETS make everyday items of use into carpets with impressive sizes. Products that normally have no value once they have been used, such as plastic forks, plasters, paving tiles, pasta, cotton balls and pegs are arranged in an inventive way to form a graphic pattern. 
WE MAKE CARPETS are inspired by the colour, shape and possibilities of the material chosen. The result is not just a decorative carpet, but an object that makes us think about the consumer society that produces these ‘weaving materials’. A contemporary interpretation of wealth. Check out their website for more of their brilliant work.

HANS VAN BENTEM

chandeliers by Dutch artist Hans van Bentem

JAMES CAUTY


James Cauty gained fame by a performance in which he burned a million pounds. He's a musician and contemporary artist.
THE AFTERMATH DISLOCATION PRINCIPLE Part IV exibited in Piet Hein Eek's exhibition space shows his preference for distressed scenes in a scaled landscape of 136 square meters. 
It took him and his assistants eight months to built this miniature landscape which is cleverly accompanied by light and sound effects from police radio's. 
At first glance it reminds you of a railway model layout. Watching closely one detects the detailed scenery of a world where all civilians seem to have disappeared and where only the authorities are left. Everything is destroyed but it looks like they have the situation under control. There's no indication to what could have caused the situation and what will happen next.
