COR Lounge Chair

I can’t say I love the name(Shrimp Cocktail), but this chair does resemble an update or possibly a revision of the iconic Eames Lounge Chair. Designed for COR by Jehs+Laub. This lounge is a nice alternative to the ubiquitous Herman Miller version.

Håkansson Tegman House

Hakansson Tegman House is a single story home in Höllviken, Sweden, which was designed to have a very direct connection with nature and the outdoors. Design was carried out by Johan Sundberg. The walls feature a mix of slated wood and glass. This allows it to be wide open to the outdoors, while also maintaining a nice level of privacy.

Pen Type-A

I always keep a pen on my for sketching ideas that come to mind or taking notes, but I have never been able to compel myself to keep a ruler on me at all times. Pen Type-A solves this problem by not forcing me to carry another object. Both are a singular entity until you need to use them and the pen simply unscrews from the cylinder within the ruler. Designed by CW&T is definitely one of those objects that I could justify purchasing because I know I would take it everywhere and use it every single day.

Mountain Lamp

Lighting is normally so predictable, this Mountain lamp by Paris based designer Leonard Kadid is far more sculptural. The way it interacts with it’s environment is really different and rad.

Kuche P2

Vipp has become one of the most unique and amazing producers of quality kitchen products since the release of their classic bin in 1939. Now more than seventy years later they are reinventing the kitchen with Kuche P2 a new interpretation. Functionality and organization are so perfectly accentuated with stark minimalism. My mind immediately jumped to this new kitchen design being the love child of Braun(under the direction of Dieter Rams) and Bulthaup.

Dark Mountain House

Clad in black stained wood this multi-level house undulates down the slope of the lot creating an interesting relationship with it’s surrounding. The main access is across a suspended metal bridge, which connects the house to the hill above. Designed by Miurashin Architect + Associates the further you explore the house the more you learn about it’s environment and are able to experience it in a way otherwise impossible. The most explicit example of this is the tiered roof deck, which literally expands out directly out into the forest canopy.

Swissted

Graphic designer Mike Joyce has an ongoing project called swissted where he recreates rock posters through the lens of Swiss modernism. The resulting posters are a beautiful study in the practice of design, and for some reason have a much greater intrigue than all those minimalist movie poster interpretations that have been circulating.


Sakae Restaurant

In Yokohama, Japan sits a small locavore restaurant designed to heighten the experience through an enlightened approach to user experience. The space was designed by Kentaro Yamazaki of YKDW, is focused around a single communal dining table situated right next to the kitchen. Sakae has taken term open kitchen and pushed it to all new lengths. This creates an environment that reminds me more of my dream kitchen and dining room for a home than a restaurant. Their method makes a great amount of sense as locavore cuisine is highly impacted by preparation and cooking techniques. So every guest is involved as an observer in how and what the kitchen is concocting.

The Shed

This renovation carried out by Richard Peter Associates is nothing short of amazing. They have converted a dilapidated commercial outbuilding into more than a living space, they have created a home. Playing off the rich accents of a turn of the century architecture, such as the raw brick and massive beams the main structure stands nicely opposed to the modern finishing work and minimalist aesthetic in general.

Fruita Blanch

To emphasize their new product line of 100% organic and self harvested canned goods Fruita Blanch has paired up with Barcelona based Atipus to create an new identity and packaging system. The resulting labels are of a single universal size, meant to fit any jar size without obscuring the contents, which are the most delectable part.


Geo Washplane

I am torn between two worlds right now. The past and the future. I love the texture and history of objects that have been used over and over. Simultaneously the future is painted so interestingly by the design of fixtures, architecture, technologies, and everything else in the physical world. Designed by Omnivo the Geo Washplane so beautifully illustrates this futuristic design.


Cermic Fan Heater

All of the products in Plus Minus Zero (±0) are the epitome of minimalist design perfection, and are also stunningly curated. This new Ceramic Fan Heater is a beautiful design object and heating source.

Okerö Woodshed

Good design is even applicable to a woodshed. Jonas Palmius designed this small structure in Okerö Sweden protects it’s contents and allows them to dry out through the slated sides, and also makes the wood easily accessible.

Collection for Coalesse

MINIMAL Inc. has designed a Collection for Coalesse, which to put it simply aims to redefine the conference room. As our workspaces and desks have evolved the conference room has stayed the same. Our practices have become ever more social, and collaboration is an active component of any good work environment. Based on this evolution in the work environment the area where we hold meetings and brainstorm as a group obviously needed an overhaul. This collection by Minimal reminds me a lot of the ergonomics and structure of some of Herman Miller’s classic office chairs and even airport seating, with some obvious comfort updates and a great deal of elegance. One aspect that I find striking about the line in general is that it seems to be set at a lower than standard height for office furniture. This undoubtedly translates into the mood and energy that exists with in the conference room.

City Cottage

To getaway you don’t always have to go a great distance. This little cottage built in Helsinki is only a little over a mile from their family home offers the perfect type of minimalist getaway in a small intimate little structure. Every detail, object and fixture had to be perfect, as the space is only 150 square feet. Low energy consumption and the natural setting of this house make it an ecologically sound vacation option when compared to driving or flying somewhere. Finnish culture holds nature in a place of great respect and that even comes through in their city planning where camping areas and parks are designed right into the fabric of cities. Also because of it’s small scale this little building makes virtually zero impact and can be powered entirely by solar energy. The design for the cottage was done by Verstas Architects a Helsinki based firm.

Parking Garage Herdern

The beautiful mountainsides of Switzerland provide the perfect canvas for built in structures. I have seen this demonstrated both in unique hobbit like dwellings all the way up to ultra modern luxury lofts dug into a hillside. Here we see probably the pinnacle of garage design in the entire world. Kunz Architektur has used to the ground to enclose and also frame parking for a clients car collection. Part display and part storage the juxtaposition between the grass and wild flowers, and the concrete glass and steel of the cars is awesome.

Nara Single Family House

Building a single family house on a small urban lot has so many restrictions and the level of difficulty to keep a project within a feasible budget is next to impossible. A small house a bit under 900 square feet offers a nice level of open plan living without doors, but ensures privacy and division through narrowing hallways and deliberately placed nooks. The architects who designed this house are ninkipen! a small Japanese based studio.
