Mirror oh mirror by Sam Orlando Miller

To make each piece, Miller has the glass hand-blown in Poland, silvered, then shipped to his Italian workshop, where he experiments, using low-acid chemicals or just leaving them out in the elements. He also creates the steel frames on which the glass sits. For this series, Miller silver-plated the frames, to call even more attention to the mirrors as autonomous objects but also to hark back to his childhood as the son of a silversmith. “Part of growing up with silver made me realize it was just a substance that happens to be wonderful to work with because of its physical qualities, not its status or worth,” Miller has said. “The skill of working with silver is the understanding of reflection. When you make an object in silver you need to know how it captures the world around it.”

Italian designer and marble sculptor giacomo ravagli has created barometro lamps. 
This collection was the first for the young designer (2011). 
Composed of copper and rare italian marble, the lamps - available in floor and table versions - 
represent a time and labor intensive process. 



 His second design collection, signs also for Nilufar Unlimited Collection, is the Tunisia chandelier made in expanded copper mesh and steel 3 elegant and unparalleled chandeliers in one, or one for many, Tunisia is a constellation of light – also floor and table based – to be distributed with no boundaries in domestic interiors and for contract projects, to be mixed and expanded in the years.

Prototypes by Daniele Fratarcangeli

As an emerging artist, designer, and teacher, Daniele designs and fabricates a line of glass prototypes in the pursuit of creating objects that are unique, alluring and vibrantly warp their surroundings. Each piece is hand-blown glass that is then mirrored on the interior to give it that reflective quality. It is very reminiscent of Emmnanuel Babled (in much cheaper)

Liquid Glacial table by Zaha Hadid Architects

The Liquid Glacial design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic. The elementary geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, while the table’s legs seem to pour from the horizontal in an intense vortex of water frozen in time.

Jacques Jarrige curves

To appreciate furniture, I usually focus on material or shape but with Jarrige,  I enjoy the treatment of the negative spaces created by the moving forms of his furniture/sculptures.

Lighting according to Mattia Bonetti

No limit to his creativity. From bronze to stone, Mattia Bonetti continues to expore all materials and shapes to  create lightings that are fun, pure and imaginative.

B&W

I like when a project seems effortless. When using the classic black and white contrast, one can archive this simple yet sophisticate look that brings the air and the earth in mind, the icelandic beauty and roughness.
