Tendências para 2018 de acordo com a CIN

A CIN apresenta os 12 novos tons que representam as Tendências de Cor para 2018 e que vêm complementar o catálogo “Color Revelation”. 12 novas cores inspiradas na força da natureza das quais faz parte a sofisticada e misteriosa cor do ano –Amethyst#E723.

Escolhidas para revelar a beleza da casa e das paredes, juntam-se às quatro colecções – Neutral Revelation, Red Revelation, Blue Revelation e Green Revelation - 12 novas cores que prometem marcar o próximo ano. Inspirado na força indomável da natureza no seu estado mais puro e selvagem, este catálogo de 40 cores encontra-se adaptado às tendências do próximo ano. Cada colecção conta com 10 tons inspirados em nuances de água, atmosfera, minerais e solo, ou seja, nos tons da nossa casa: o planeta Terra.

Com o lançamento destas 12 novas cores, esta colecção emblemática torna-se ainda mais versátil, proporcionando a cada pessoa criar a sua própria combinação de cores. Quando decoramos um espaço, a escolha das cores é um dos momentos mais importantes e, por isso mesmo, continuamos a desenvolver cores totalmente exclusivas e feitas à medida para todos os apaixonados pelas suas casas”, explica Céline de Azevedo, Designer de Cor da CIN.

Com estas novas cores, a CIN permanece na vanguarda uma vez que continua a ser a primeira e única empresa de tintas nacional a desenhar, todos os anos, novas sugestões inspiradoras para a casa dos portugueses, mas não só. As Tendências de Cor CIN são uma referência em diversos mercados, continuando a CIN a dar resposta aos seus consumidores e profissionais mais exigentes. 

 

A Cor do Ano

Sem palavras! É esta a melhor definição para Amethyst#E723, a Cor do Ano 2018 da CIN que se inspira na pedra que voltou ao universo das tendências do design e da joalharia, respirando mistério. Esta cor inesperada e quase mágica transmite os benefícios da ametista pela harmonia que irradia, uma vez que esta pedra impactante é habitualmente indicada para o equilíbrio da casa.

 

Este tom mais escuro está enquadrado nas tendências actuais da decoração, proporcionando nuances diferentes e arrojadas mas, ao mesmo tempo, clássicas e requintadas. A cor do ano permite que sejamos atrevidos na decoração e, ao mesmo tempo, traz beleza e uma elegância inata e harmoniosa às nossas casas. Porque precisamos de cores repletas de valores dentro de casa, com Amethyst#E723 encontra o equilíbrio e a beleza que procura.

Tendências de Cor 2018 Gama Neutral Revelation – 3 novos tons neutros, suaves e intemporais

A gama com cores, materiais e texturas que transmitem pureza em busca de equilíbrio e serenidade apresenta novos tons, também eles neutros, suaves e intemporais.

Com base na tendência actual do hygge, surge Hygge Grey#E715, um neutro trendy que lhe proporciona um ambiente harmonioso e confortável em sua casa. Criando ambientes serenos e luminosos, o hygge apela ao bem-estar e a momentos de relaxamento e conforto, tornando o seu lar o local mais acolhedor do mundo. Lava Stone#E716 é a cor de origem terrestre que lhe traz a força de um vulcão, consistência e personalidade, podendo revelar, ao mesmo tempo, um estado de repouso permanente. Esta tonalidade é a resposta cromática da utilização das pedras vulcânicas nas tendências do design.

Para nuances neutras e escuras, a CIN apresenta o novo Causeway#E717: um cinzento natural ligeiramente esverdeado, escuro e muito sólido, inspirado nas impressionantes colunas de basalto de Giant's Causeway, na costa Norte da Irlanda. Estes são os novos tons desta colecção que se juntam à personificação do linho em cor do tom Linen#E684, à mistura do cinzento e bege de Greige#E683, ao castanho fumado do tom Taupe#E679, ao cinza claro de Alpaca Grey#E680, ao cinzento arroxeado da cor Stromboli#E677, ao cinzento médio de Simply Grey#E676, e, finalmente, ao mármore do Carrara White#E675

Red Revelation – As 3 novidades especiais para interiores

Estas cores deixam-nos sem palavras! Red Revelation é uma colecção sensível, emocional, afectiva e olfactiva… é a feminilidade expressa na natureza e integra agora novos tons avermelhados e rosados.

Para o novo ano, a CIN oferece-lhe o tom ideal para aplicar em todos os recantos do seu lar. Continuando com a tendência dos rosas na decoração da casa, o Rose Breeze#E718 transmite a doçura e suavidade ideal para o quarto das princesas. Um tom sedoso, delicado, com o toque fino dos grãos de areia, este é um rosa de matiz muito suave e luminosa. Se há cor que não pode esquecer é o novo Canyon#E719: um tom alaranjado que encarna o tacto suave e a personalidade das esculturas de pedra, calcário e arenito. Numa altura em que na decoração os rosas fogem para os laranjas, esta tonalidade apresenta nuances e texturas de barro, de terracota, e ilustra cenários emblemáticos como os desfiladeiros do Norte da América.

 

Sabia que o poder cromático tem características positivas e benefícios para a nossa saúde? Então porque não colocar essa boa disposição nas paredes da sua casa? Aplique Turmeric#E720: a cor luminosa, alaranjada e amarela e, ao mesmo tempo, saudável, calorosa e inspirada numa especiaria milenar. Esta cor remete-nos para terras da Índia pelo seu tom alaranjado da curcuma que faz lembrar aromas, sabores e paisagens muito característicos desta terra. E para a colecção ficar completa, a estes três novos tons juntam-se o doce tom Cameo Pink#E685, a cor inspirada no típico vinho francês de Borgonha, Burgundy#E694, a personificação do “tom de pele” da cor Nude#E687, o ramo de rosas do tom Bouquet#E692, Victorian Rose#E691, a cor que emoldura o chá das cinco, o aconchego de Old Cognac#E688 e o tom ultra leve de New Blush#E690.

Blue Revelation – As novas cores indispensáveis na decoração

A paz oceânica e o azul relaxante do céu contam com três novos tons para colorir os interiores com harmonia. Chegaram as cores indispensáveis na decoração!

 

Suave e sem luminosidade excessiva, Glassy Blue#E721 é o azul na “medida certa” que pode aplicar sem medos e que vai deixar todos satisfeitos. Quase transparente, é um azul muito leve, tranquilo e imperturbável que o envolve numa atmosfera de eternidade. Indispensável na decoração, Navy Blue#E722 é o azul-marinho histórico no vocabulário internacional da moda, tornando-se obrigatório nas nuances da casa e das cores utilizadas em decoração. É um clássico que nunca passa de moda e que nos transporta para a frescura do alto mar, sempre presente na paleta de cores essenciais na vida, no design e na decoração. E é aqui que encontra a cor do ano: Amethyst#723 que, em tom de violeta, cativa olhares, transmite a magia, a beleza e a elegância de uma jóia de ametista. Misteriosa e inesperada, esta cor traz equilíbrio à casa, ao mesmo tempo que lhe permite ser arrojado na decoração. A colecção fica completa com os já conhecidos tons Mare Nostrum#E697, a cor influenciada pelo Mediterrânico, Into the Blue#E696 inspirado no azul do imenso céu, a paisagem marinha da cor Seascape#E700, o trendy tom de Bleu Canard#E701, o rico, profundo e escuro Petrol Blue#E702, Blue Mountains#E704, a cor influenciada pelo azul acinzentado, difuso e subtil, e, finalmente, a cor natural com origem na argila do mar, Sea Clay#E703.

Green Revelation – As 3 novas cores revitalizantes

A colecção que homenageia a clorofila, a fotossíntese e a paisagem, Green Revelation mantém a sua fonte de inspiração no verde das plantas e das florestas. O resultado são três novas cores revitalizantes.

 

Inspirada nas plantas suculentas muito utilizadas em decoração, Succulent Green#E724 é uma cor suave e natural que resulta nos espaços onde é aplicada, adaptando-se aos diferentes estilos de decoração. Com esta cor, a casa irradia, ao mesmo tempo, calor e frescura, transmitindo uma sensação translúcida. Associado à saúde e vitalidade, a naturalidade do Sage Green#E725 inspira-se nas folhas de sálvia, sendo elegante, intemporal e o tom ideal para encontrar o equilíbrio e harmonia nas nuances da decoração interior. A terceira nova cor desta colecção funciona nos espaços em que se pretende um toque elegante e inesperado. Malachite#E726 é um verde orgulhoso da sua cor! Intensa e optimista, esta cor é inspirada numa pedra ornamental histórica na decoração de interiores. A estas novas cores juntam-se o tom do mar das Caraíbas, Caribbean#E705, o pigmento histórico de cor verde-azulado de Verdigris#706, o tom de mostarda, Mustard#E714, o verde amarelado de Vert Chartreuse#E712, Khaki Vert#E711, uma cor incontornável no mundo da moda, as nuances verde-claras acinzentadas do tom Celadon#E708 e, finalmente, a cor inspirada nas algas, Líquen#E709.

Para além do icónico Catálogo Tendências de Cor, a CIN disponibiliza um website que revela especificamente esta nova colecção de cores: www.colorrevelation.com. Esta ferramenta permite consultar o Catálogo Tendências de Cor 2018, encomendá-lo e recebê-lo em casa, navegar nas cores da colecção e visualizar a história de cada uma através de vídeos que a marca criou. 

Coberturas verdes com sistema de plantas aromáticas da LandLab

O sistema “plantas aromáticas”, disponível através da LandLab em Portugal,  apresenta um peso muito reduzido o que permite criações paisagísticas e combinações entre zonas pedonais e zonas ajardinadas. Em comparação com um sistema intensivo  (como o sistema “Jardim na Cobertura”) a manutenção do sistema “plantas aromáticas” é muito menor.

A comunidade vegetal do sistema  “plantas aromáticas” é constituída por plantas tapizantes, ervas aromáticas e pequenas arbustivas como o tomilho, a alfazema e os orégãos.

Esta seleção de plantas forma uma vegetação muito resistente à seca, visualmente agradável e de baixa manutenção.

O substrato do sistema  “plantas aromáticas”, concebido especificamente para esta comunidade de plantas, é utilizado em combinação com o elemento de retenção de água e drenagem Floradrain ® FD 40-E para criar as condições de habitat ideais para esta vegetação.

O Floradrain® FD 40-E é um elemento universal para configurações extensivas e intensivas. Conta com uma elevada capacidade de drenagem. É rápido e fácil de montar e permite combinar áreas ajardinadas com zonas de passagem pedonal.

Colecção Cronos by Ethimo

EN Teak wood is one of the best materials for outdoor furniture, thanks to its high resistance to temperature changes, water, salt air and humidity. The worn out look of the pickled finish or the honey shades of the natural one, give to Cronos tables and seats a pleasant classic style that recalls the traditional woodcraft.

The ductility of teak is evident in the seatbacks of the Village collection, where every geometric detail is cared for and harmoniously shaped. Ethimo only uses Fsc certified teak of the best quality as security for the excellence of the materials involved in the production and the respect for the environment.

Tapetes de exterior no seu jardim!

Há cada vez uma maior oferta de tapetes no mercado que são para uso no exterior, são fabricado em polipropileno ou tecido vinil. São de fibras sintéticas, duradouros, resistentes às manchas e de fácil limpeza. Resistem à chuva, ao sol, à neve e à sujidade.

É um elemento bastante desejado para zonas de estar no jardim ou terraço, ajuda a recriar um ambiente mais aconchegante mimificando o que fazemos no interior nas salas-de-estar.

À claro que coloque tapetes fabricados noutros materiais no exterior mas não se esqueça que deve ser temporário somente, tapetes que não são próprios para o exterior rapidamente perdem a cor e sujam-se facilmente.


Planear para uma pérgula bioclimática

Quando projetamos um terraço, devemos ter em conta muitos factores, sendo o mais importante, conhecer as necessidades e o estilo de vida das pessoas que vão utilizá-lo. As pérgulas bioclimáticas são um investimento considerável num jardim ou terraço por isso devem ser pensadas cuidadosamente e ver com a marca em questão quais são as opções disponíveis em termos de acabamentos, tamanhos, iluminação, aquecimento e laterais. A orientação, a exposição, o clima do local, as dimensões e o design são determinantes para a construção e criação de uma atmosfera agradável. Com a pérgula bioclimática, consegue-se uma zona coberta impermeável, com lâminas de alumínio ajustáveis e com um sistema motorizado, mas silencioso. O sistema permite a inclinação das lâminas de pelo menos 0° a 135° graus, o que faz com que o ar quente flua de forma natural para o exterior, refrescando a zona e aumentando o conforto.

Esta nova tecnologia de proteção solar, posiciona-se dentro da arquitetura bioclimática, uma vez que permite o controlo do equilíbrio entre o habitat, as pessoas e o clima, melhorando as condições de temperatura e ventilação, permitindo ajustar a qualquer momento, o isolamento e a ventilação, e protegendo-nos da chuva mesmo na posição de ventilação.


Molten Rock, Ceramic, Glass. New Experiments by Paola Lenti

Natural materials processed with traditional techniques, decorations inspired by the matter itself, transparencies and metallic effects: these are the new elements presented by Paola Lenti for her new tabletops collection.

Venice is the modern interpretation of an ancient material, recyclable and humidity-resistant. The delicate surface irregularities and colour variations, which are due to the reaction of the pigments during the different processing stages , make a tabletop from Venice unique and uncopyable.

Luce is a strong material, substantial and easy to maintain. Molten rock plates are enamelled by hand: the colour remains transparent and bright and this allows to notice the porosity and imperfections of the stone among the different shades

Large abstract drawings, metallic oxidised colours, intense changing shades: the ceramic surfaces’ decorations come from the experimentation of new techniques and from the artist’s personal research, combining and mixing powders, minerals and pigments for an unusual chromatic result.

Tendence 2017 in Frankfurt showed what is ‘in’

Materials that look natural like wood, willow, rattan and linen are combined with brass, copper, silver, gold and glass. At the same time, in the juxtaposition of opposites, matte, textured, highly polished and natural surfaces play off against one another. And we see a mix of perforation and patterns that draw their inspiration from nature, as well as used and ethno looks. The targeted use of concrete, for example, lends definite contemporary perspectives. Inspiration drawn from a variety of styles flashes between them, including Art Deco, the 1950s and Memphis. On the one hand, the colours that dominate are a powdery rosé and mint tones; on the other, we find a whole series of blues and greens. A sunshine yellow provides summery accents.

 

Style conscious

‘Hygge’ continues to be a major theme: in this relaxed, often restrained and soigné style, the clean lines draw attention to the quality of the material and workmanship. At the same time, large-scale leaf motifs unfold into luxuriant jungles. Buddhas, bamboo and sandy colours add a touch of the exotic. Solid barbecues and robust outdoor cooking gear make a masculine statement, as does outdoor furniture in concrete. Seating, tables and lights appear to come straight from the workshop or the factory and display coarse fittings such as rivets and brackets.

Dedon introduces THE OTHERS, a new lantern collection by Stephen Burks

Dedon presents THE OTHERS, an anthropomorphic lantern collection that ventures into decorative art. Playful, colourful, sculptural and sophisticated, THE OTHERS consists of a variety of hand-woven lanterns that, presented individually or arranged in totem-like stacks, take on the appearance of illuminated characters. Pairs of hand-made acrylic eyes, available as accessories, gaze back at the viewer with humor, curiosity and even a little mischief.

According to the concept of the influential American designer Stephen Burks, whose work frequently touches on the meaning of handicraft and the humanity of those who create it, the collection began as an exploration into abstract figurative design.“I imagined a colourful community of dreamers, full of personality, gazing back at the rest of the world with ambition, sophistication and pride. They appeared to me almost like ambassadors or guides into our imagination.”

DEDON, which has partnered with Burks on such original, award-winning collections as DALA and AHNDA, was so inspired by the one-off project proposed to put THE OTHERS into production. “My relationship with DEDON makes me free to explore ideas outside of the traditional briefs,” Burks explains, “and this is what I think makes the company so iconic.” (via http://www.archiproducts.com/en/news/dedon-introduces-the-others-a-new-lantern-collection-by-stephen-burks_57716)

CALA COLLECTION BY DOSHI LEVIEN

In 2016, the Cala chair established a new design language for Kettal that combines large natural curves with a latticed rope weave creating a majestic spatial presence with transparent and light surfaces.

The idea evolved and Doshi Levien created additional pieces to make a collection including a dining chair, a series of tables and low foot stools.

The Dining table has a monolithic and bold presence, providing contrast to the lightness of the chairs.

Set in to the table frame are different tops including wood and marble. The same frame construction can be recognised in the low tables and foot stools, that complete the Cala collection.

A new perspective

The municipalities and their green spaces

In 2017 Tudo Sobre jardins magazine celebrates 10 years of existence, an important milestone for us as it is also a time of overcome challenges and a lot of resilience in a sector that have experienced difficult times in Portugal, nevertheless we glimpse some changes and perspectives of a more positive future .

We already have some ideas to be worked out with the aim of celebrating with our clients and readers this anniversary, and we started already in this issue of the magazine Tudo Sobre Jardins digital version, a new type of article dedicated to the The Municipalities and their Green Spaces.

It makes sense to start with the municipality of Mafra, the headquarters of our publishing company and where the idea of the magazine Tudo Sobre Jardins was born in 2007. We want, not only, to make known existing spaces and gardens, but also innovative projects that the municipalities are developing, a different way of approaching the readers and the local power.

Uma nova perspetiva

As autarquias e os seus espaços verdes

Em 2017 a Tudo Sobre Jardins celebra 10 anos de existência, um marco importante para nós pois é também um tempo de desafios ultrapassados e de muita persistência num setor que têm vivido tempos difíceis em Portugal, vislumbramos no entanto algumas mudanças e perspetivas de futuro mais positivas.

Temos já algumas ideias a serem trabalhadas com o objetivo de festejarmos com os nossos clientes e leitores este aniversário. Começamos já nesta edição da revista Tudo Sobre Jardins digital, com um novo tipo de artigo dedicado às autarquias com o tema As Autarquias e os seus Espaços Verdes.

Faz todo o sentido começarmos com o concelho de Mafra, sede da nossa editora e onde nasceu a ideia da revista Tudo Sobre Jardins em 2007. Queremos não só dar a conhecer espaços e jardins existentes, como projetos inovadores que as autarquias estejam a desenvolver, uma maneira diferente também de aproximar os leitores/municipes do poder autárquico.

Mas já sabe que pode contar ainda nesta edição com muitas ideias para o jardim, decoração, notícias, equipamentos...

Magnólias, uma das minhas árvores preferidas!

Magnolia L., é um género de plantas, conhecidas pelo nome comum de magnólias, pertencentes à família das Magnoliaceae. Também é o nome comum das flores proveniente de plantas deste género, nativas das regiões temperadas do hemisfério norte.

As magnólias são árvores, arbustos ou arvoretas semidecíduas ou decíduas, apreciados como ornamentais em jardins, principalmente em locais de clima temperado ou subtropical. Produzem abundantes flores brancas, rosadas e amarelas, grandes e perfumadas.

 

A ciência botânica tem um interesse especial pelas magnólias, por apresentarem estruturas reprodutivas e anatômicas que se acredita serem extremamente primitivas em relação a todas as outras flores, apresentando semelhanças com Gimnospermas primitivas. Alguns dos fósseis mais antigos de Angiospermas conhecidos apresentam flores semelhantes às magnólias. A sua época de floração é vai de Fevereiro a Abril.

COLLECTION BRIXX

Modules of exceptional comfort and quality

One of BRIXX’s defining characteristics is a diagonal groove that runs across The fabric of each module, introducing triangles to the rectilinear design. The groove is created by sewing two pieces of fabric to a third one underneath, leaving a small gap in between. As users combine modules, they can construct abstract geometrical landscapes all their own,

an effect Bozzoli has enhanced with optional triangular and cylindrical backrests, circular and square cushions, even a small spherical cushion.

Upholstered outdoor furniture unlike anything created before

The BRIXX collection comprises square and rectangular modules, a side table and a selection of backrests and cushions, all in a distinctive mix of materials, textures and colors. Made with sophisticated indoor technologies, the modules consist of powder-coated steel frames encased in molded polyurethane foam, with belting for extra comfort. Stable and supportive yet easy to move, backrests come with a weighted core and anti-slip pads. Perfect for connecting modules, the triangular side table in powder-coated aluminum features detachable natural teak legs.

One of the three available colors is DUNE COVE/SHORE

BRIXX comes upholstered in its own outdoor-ready DEDON fabric, soft and inviting Dune. The fabric’s chunky yarns are spun with 50-percent recycled post-industrial fibers in a diversity of colors. The resulting imperfections, both deliberate and desirable, give water-repellant Dune its remarkably natural appearance, conveying an unusual depth and richness of tone. BRIXX modules are available in a choice of colors — red-tinged shore, blueish cove or a graphic combination of both, cove/shore.

Da casa para o jardim

Grandes ideias para espaços pequenos

Jardins de tamanho reduzido fisicamente são um desafio em termos de design, a melhor maneira de planear um espaço pequeno é mantê-lo o mais simples possível. Plantas grandes e estruturais com cores suaves, contrastando as cores fortes na parede ou decorações usadas.

Evitar plantas com padrões muito pormenorizados tanto a nível da folha como da flor, plantas bastante dramáticas e estruturais funcionam muito bem em espaços pequenos, criando sombras e interesse. 


Usar a verticalidade como forma de criar mais interesse ao mesmo tempo expandimos a área de vegetação no jardim.

A maioria das plantas deve ser de folha persistente para terem interesse durante o ano todo com um restrito número de espécies de folha caduca.

 

O design do jardim deve ser o mais simples possível, evitar pavimentos muito complexos, tentar conduzir com o interior da casa ajuda a criar a ilusão que o espaço exterior é uma extensão da habitação e não um espaço isolado.

Seleccione um elemento que contrasta com o resto do jardim ou pela sua forma ou cor, como um banco ou a parede de fundo, cores devem ser conjugadas com as plantas, demasiadas cores geram confusão portanto o melhor é restringir o número de cores a usar, cores quentes dão um ar mais acolhedor ao espaço. Usar estas cores mais no acessórios e decorações conjugando sempre com a casa.

 

Plantas em vasos são mais fáceis de transportar e redecorar se for necessário, é uma boa ideia para colecção de ervas aromáticas e outras ervas de culinária.

Espaço com sombra é necessário para as tardes quentes de verão, pode ser criado com uma pergola com trepadeiras ou lona entrelaçada na estrutura.

Pontos de referência no jardim chamam à atenção e convidam as pessoas ao espaço exterior.

 

Uma varanda pode também ser transformada num pequeno jardim, os chamados jardim verticais com alguns especialistas a fazerem trabalhos espectaculares nesta área, mas uma simples trepadeira podem também criar interesse vertical.  

 

O equilíbrio entre plantas e materiais tanto a nível de cores como da complexidade das texturas é essencial para produzir um espaço harmonioso e aconchegante.

Iluminação dá uma dimensão completamente diferente ao espaço e estruturas ou plantas ganham outra importância no plano geral do jardim, deve-se evitar iluminar em demasia ou todo o jardim por igual, mas sim escolher detalhes de estruturas ou plantas que se queiram destacar e à noite a recompensa é espectacular.

 

Jardins de tamanho mais reduzido beneficiam de uso de materiais “diferentes” ou inovadores, como em estruturas ou simplesmente em objectos meramente decorativos. As passagens da casa para o jardim são essenciais para a continuidade do design, os elementos decorativos e cores devem ser conjugadas. Cada vez mais até o mesmo tipo de mobiliário pode ser utilizados tanto no interior como no exterior com algumas das melhores marcas Europeias e não só a produzirem mobiliário com fibras sintéticas de alta qualidade, assim como tapetes de exterior por exemplo.

Ghost by Marc Sadler, iluminação por subtracção da Simes

The Ghost line represents a revolution in the way of conceiving outdoor lighting.

It works by “subtraction” rather than “addition”: no visible lighting fixture is added to the building’s structure, but on the contrary it consists in a void filled with light. The light comes directly from the structure and emphasizes the creative path envisaged by the lighting designer.  

Ghost is a sign, a bright pixel that appears or disappears marking the architectural rhythm.

It is a primary element, similar to a brick. With a brick you can build a small wall but also a cathedral.

It will be the ability of the designers to utilize such lighting pixel and create something extraordinary.

 

Ghost, what we want to add is just light.

Ghost is a lighting void that is created using a housing anchored to two retaining panels before pouring in concrete to make the structure. Once the concrete is dry, the housing is removed and the left space is a natural and sharp cast created in the drying process.

Ghost is ideal for concrete based structures including walls and facades of residential or commercial buildings, as well as concrete staircases of stadiums, public buildings and anti vandal project applications.

Using acrylic and waterproof fabrics, the new Varaschin products are the best choice to furnish outdoor spaces with elegance, comfort and quality.

The table BIG is available in "LOW" version too, which means 65 cm tall (compared to the standard height of 75 cm). This measure is ideal for a more relaxed and less formal approach to the dining experience. A small detail for a new life style, where comfort and conviviality meet and match.

The trends of 2017 by imm cologne

The most important trend in the interiors world: There is no longer a right or wrong. Not only life is contradictory - our apartments are too! Leather is placed next to plastic, reduced design next to nostalgic vintage items, cool grey and white tones in the living room next to a pastel-coloured kitchen and a dark-green bedroom. Everything exists next to each other. And yet certain trends are becoming apparent in the run-up to imm cologne 2017 that are dominant in their respective section.

Why does one of the most famous German designers want to collaborate with craftsmen from Colombia? Why are natural materials in higher demand than ever? And why are accessories and smaller pieces of furniture at the top of the list of the buyers? This year, furniture with a story, natural materials and small, well-designed products are playing a major role in the new living environments. In terms of colours, besides the big grey theme, traffic light variants in red and green are popular and the hip cosiness is leading to a sustainable revival of wallpaper, carpets and textiles in the interior design world.

An era of opposites

It is particularly noticeable as far as the colours are concerned, but it can also be observed in the choice of furniture: More and more often different furnishing styles are being favoured - sometimes even in the same apartment, as the colour expert Dr. Axel says: "More and more contradictory shades are being combined in the apartment. We seek both in it: sociability and retreat, attraction and delimitation. We invite people in and flee from company. We don't like to entirely commit ourselves. We love objectivity and cuteness at the same time. And these are mixed together in some way."

But we not only like to mix opposites within our own four walls - our lifestyles are also lived out alongside each other and simultaneously as necessary. Not only Todd Bracher, Guest of Honour in the design process of "Das Haus - Interiors on Stage" in 2017, yearns for both in secret: A life with high-tech and with nature, a life in a log cabin, yet with a smartphone. The private lives of people are developing more and more into a place of simultaneous work and leisure, sociability and retreat. It is not without good reason that the apartments are becoming cosier, as imm cologne already announced a few years ago. One seeks the well-being atmosphere in it which makes the globalised and in some respects threatening life bearable. And yet it is no longer the same individualistic trend towards retreat that dominated the society in the 1990s. In the future report 2017 the current, attitude towards life that seeks aesthetic and social warmth is referred to as "hygge", a Danish term (pronounced like "Hügga"). Hygge is a softer and more social version of cocooning, a way of life where one concentrates on small things, things that are really important: Spending more time with friends and family and enjoying the good things in life. Hygge, according to the trend report, is an anti-model to the fleeting urban lifestyle - within the urban lifestyle. This is not about a "new bourgeois" approach, but about an enlightened design attitude towards things, people and situations.

Hygge and the trend towards light, friendly pastel colours as well as natural green shades are turning Scandinavian-style furniture into an absolute hit. Small, natural, unpretentious, yet still often also of unusual and cheeky design - these are the ingredients that allow cosiness to be created, a place where both modern style and a traditional well-being ambiance are at home. 

Furniture with a story

For the development of a complete home collection for ames, Sebastian Herkner, Guest of Honour of imm cologne 2016, once again broke new ground. This time he sought a collaboration with Colombian craftsmen: In Santa Marta, in the Colombian Caribbean, Rafael and his friends produce woven stools made of plastic string and steel - furniture and a technique that co-shape the image of the entire coastal region. The familiar "Momposino" weave is taught in school as a craft in this region of Colombia. Together with Herkner they spent an entire weekend finding the best method to realise the round shapes created by the German designer and selected fresh colour combinations full of the zest of life. Ames is presenting the Caribe furniture series for the first time at imm cologne 2017 as part of the ames sala collection. 

The new, outdoor-compatible furniture family - comprising of a chair, lounge armchair, a higher and a lower large side table as well as a wicker table - combines different coloured plastic strings with a galvanised or powder-coated frame made of tubular steel and steel wire.The Caribe series stands for a trend in the interiors industry that will perhaps never become mainstream, but which is exemplary for the growing need for meaningfulness among the manufacturers and consumers. And contrary to some expectations, this trend is evidently being carried by the market. It is not always the case as here that one succeeds in combining sustainable production with an aesthetic concept in a pilot project while at the same time also accommodating the increasing interest of people for authentic products. However the number of products that tell their own special story is constantly growing.

 

Natural materials for individual furniture

Natural wood furniture is at the top of the wish list when searching for authenticity, because it is always something special - one can see it, smell it, feel it. The trend towards natural materials will most probably experience its preliminary climax at imm cologne 2017. Solid wood is even taking the climatically difficult environment of the bathroom by storm. Manufacturers, who have been focusing on solid wood furniture for many years, will without doubt enjoy a higher level of trust here. Together with the bathroom furniture manufacturer, Keuco, the company Team 7 from Austria has developed the Lignatur edition: A bathroom interiors concept comprising of furniture made of natural wood. These pieces of bathroom furniture are unique specimens: Each individual item is manufactured individually. Single or double basin solutions, with sunken or superimposed basins, sideboards, tall cupboards and benches are made out of three high-quality natural woods: Fine walnut, light-coloured oak as well as Venice oak - which offers a very special appearance because of its natural decorations resulting from the shipworm.

 

Intelligent living: Smart home

Will we soon all be living in smart apartments or houses? The trend towards intelligent living seems to be very popular with many Germans - the results of a representative survey that was carried out by the energy and telecommunications service provider EWE in collaboration with the Society for Consumer Research e.V. (GFK), prophesies a big future for the theme smart home: If the intelligent home is understood to be a way of increasing the living comfort and sinking the energy costs, the majority of all Germans (65.2%) are interested in it. Furthermore, the GfK survey examined the ulterior motives of those people, who stated that they are not interested in smart home solutions (22.1%). The two most frequently stated reasons: Costs are too high (46.4%), and the fear of losing one's own privacy (39%). 1,001 people throughout Germany over the age of 14 were interviewed in the course of the survey.

 

Doing a lot with little space...

Indeed the solo artists among the furniture seem to be riding on a wave of success. Small pieces of furniture, such as side tables for instance, small shelves, stools, wicker furniture, consoles or mini-cocktail armchairs are currently very popular. Stools that are progressing into the favourite product in the apartment again are benefiting from this development. These increasingly include characteristic chairs (mostly developed by famous designers) - for the individual furnishing of the often small apartments. "One of the challenges I currently see is doing a lot with a little space," explained the designer, Dick Spierenburg. Cities and towns are becoming more expensive, and space increasingly scarcer. Developing furniture that can do more is almost more interesting for designers today than designing luxury pieces. It's very exciting to design for a wide target audience that is intelligent and has taste, but doesn't have very much space to live in," the Creative Director of imm cologne assessed. The development in the "small furniture" section is at the same time driven by the increased online purchases of furniture.

 

Create moods using light: from decorative to industrial

For a time, it seemed that track, rod and rope-based lighting systems had hit an impasse. But thanks to the LED and OLED technology, these systems are undergoing a real revival of modern lighting design. In recent years, the subject of lighting has attracted attention at the international interiors show imm cologne, particularly due to lights that have created mood and introduced pleasant spots of colour into interior design, using unusual shapes, materials and dimensions. However, now new LED bulbs are once again turning rope, track and rod-based systems into a viable alternative for many people. Thanks to the electricity-saving LED technology, they are not only highly efficient, but also ultra-slim and versatile. They can be used as discreet, or even suspended, solutions for accent lighting, concealed lighting, uplights or as elegantly designed functional lights above cupboards and long-length dining tables. The manufacturers and designers of high-quality lamps create emotional and poetical models, where the source of light is artistically integrated into the design. Whether natural, glamorous or industrially chic: imm Cologne highlights current lamp trends with new products and design classics staged in inspiring presentations.

 

The four most important colour spaces of the season 2017 

Different developments seem to be emerging at imm cologne 2017 as far as colours are concerned. Life in grey is the first thing that comes to mind here - shadows of grey with all of the gradations between black and white, which form a very popular colour world. Adjacent to this is life in white, which can be combined with various pastel hues. Particularly the combination with blue transports a reduced Nordic attitude toward life: this colour scale feels Scandinavian, fresh and airy. Thirdly, a life in nice and friendly pastels is being sought, with a refreshing, motivating and cosy feeling. The fourth colour theme shows a comfortable and pleasant colourfulness that reflects more of a traditional attitude toward life with a modern and functional orientation, with colours that stand for authenticity. 

Sometimes dynamic, sometimes soft: Red as a surprising accent colour

It's the surprise of the season: Red is the primary colour that is proving especially popular as an accent colour with trendsetters and leading design brands. Few people expected it, but now it's here - as a bag to go with an outfit, in seventies-style tile designs in bathrooms or as classy couch cushions. Perhaps pink paved the way for red to enter our homes, having enjoyed continued prominence since last year with flamingo and watermelon shades. Ultimately, even bright reds no longer look so intense in tone-on-tone combinations featuring shades edging towards pink, and it creates a cheerful, almost subtle, look. It creates a genuinely classic look when contrasted with black and white, and it goes particularly well with pale shades of beige and grey in living rooms.

 

 

Green is the dominating trend theme in interior design

In the decorative section all possible shades of green are the current trend. However, the colour trend that is currently bathing our living rooms in elegant dark shades or a fresh ambience has nothing to do with the hunter green referred to in the traditional German children's song: From subtle mint through to strong grass and fine fir green, to nuances of taupe and petrol blue, green tones are finding their way into the home in a big way. At imm cologne, the leading manufacturers of the industry will be presenting high-quality and exclusive textiles in Hall 3.2. Here, visitors will be inspired by attractively presented, fabric-filled interior fantasies.

Carpets and rugs, wallpapers, textiles - the revival of fabrics in the living area

For a long time, carpets and rugs had it hard in modern households, whose fashion-conscious members preferred to rely on wooden floors and other textile-free materials when it came to choosing the right flooring. Walls had to be equally clean - homeliness achieved, at best, with an occasional lick of paint to relieve the otherwise uniformly white walls. But gone now are the days of minimalism and the accompanying lack of textiles in the home. At imm cologne, many exhibitors are holding a wide palette of new designs and grades of fabric in store for every situation and circumstance.

 

Upcycling and the next ecological wave in interior design

The trend researcher will know that a trend has reached its preliminary climax and has hit the mass market at the latest when one can buy brand-new euro-pallets in DIY stores to build one's own tables and chairs out of. Nevertheless, the remarkable approach of reusing old furniture or materials for new compositions is not only appealing, but also environmentally sound. And as such it is a sign of a gradually increasing trend towards ecologically convincing concepts. Interior items will in future be more and more frequently developed based an ecological point of view and this will also be the criterion that determines the consumers' choice. This has been observed for several years at the world's leading trade fair for furniture production and interior design.

 

Outdoors or indoors: everything is possible

Furniture for outdoors is becoming more and more flexible and decorative. The times of uniform plastic stools for the balcony and garden terrace are over. New material developments are bringing more and more design and decorative elements to the outdoor area. This leads to further application options for outdoor furniture. In this way for instance processing modern, weather-resistant materials using the original rural wicker and hazelnut weaving techniques is what lends the new Grand Weave collection by Gloster its natural charm that also looks great in the apartment. Hence, more and more outdoor furniture can also be used indoors - and a new product category is ensuing as a result.

Planear um jardim

Organização, análise, síntese e implementação, estas são as etapas a seguir para um design bem sucedido.

A organização de ideias e objectivos é sem dúvida uma das fases mais importantes. Esta etapa ditará o rumo de todo o processo de design, aqui decide-se um estilo a seguir e as principais directrizes que irão guiar o designer em todo o processo de planeamento do jardim. Nesta primeira fase uma maneira simples de esclarecer algumas dúvidas é fazer uma recolha de imagens e ilustrações, ideias que pensamos serem exequíveis, texturas e cores com as quais nos identificamos. Ao visualizar este conjunto de imagens em estilo de colagem, começamos a vislumbrar uma tendência a nível de cor, estilo, plantas e ambiente.

A análise do espaço, das suas vantagens e limitações é essencial para uma implementação ser bem sucedida. Dependendo da complexidade do espaço em questão os seguintes aspectos devem ser analisados: geologia, topografia, clima, microclimas, hidrologia, drenagem, estruturas existentes e serviços, solo, vegetação, fauna e flora. Assim como um estudo da utilização do espaço, interesse histórico e análise da vista do espaço, tanto para fora como de fora para dentro. Estas conclusões devem ser organizadas de maneira simples e de leitura fácil, a melhor maneira é em forma de desenho, usando a planta do espaço e diferente simbologia para cada situação que foi analisada.

Juntamente com as ideias da primeira etapa estes são os factores que vão ditar o resto do design do jardim. O próximo passo é uma síntese de todas as conclusões retiradas anteriormente, preparar uma lista de objectivos e políticas a seguir, definir bem o conceito inerente.

As primeiras propostas para o jardim começam agora a surgir, a constante reanálise dos objectivos traçados ajudam na melhoria do design. A interpretação gráfica dos objectivos é a maneira mais indicada para uma melhor visualização, ilustrações, desenhos e imagens em 3D ajudam a perceber o funcionamento do design na prática. Depois do plano geral estar traçado, outros elementos precisam de ser postos em prática como a estratégia para a plantação e plano para a iluminação do jardim.

A vegetação é, sem dúvida, um dos elementos que em geral tem mais impacto num jardim, plantações bem sucedidas num espaço de jardim parecem mais simples do que realmente são, estudos intensivos de como será visualizada, a sua estrutura, textura e cores são fundamentais. Constantes desenhos e elevações explicam-nos como nos poderemos sentir ao caminhar entre a vegetação.

Por exemplo, se a vegetação é de grande porte e o caminho estreito torna-se desconfortável e este caminho é feito com um passo acelerado, se a vegetação é mais baixa e o caminho ligeiramente mais largo torna-se mais confortável, transforma-se num passeio de contemplação.

 

EXISTEM DIVERSOS CRITÉRIOS NA ESCOLHA DAS PLANTAS A USAR NUM JARDIM:

A – Condições para o seu crescimento; temperaturas – ventos predominantes – zonas abrigadas tipo e qualidade do solo – pH do solo – luz natural.

B – Funções da vegetação; abrigo – como sebe – controlo de erosão – conservação da vida selvagem e biodiversidade – ornamental …

C – Caráter e temática; naturalística – artificial – formal – informal – cores das flores – folhas e frutos – aromáticas – tronco ornamental – interesse sazonal …

D – Hábito; anual – herbácea – caduca – perene …

É importante existir um estudo de evolução das plantas a 5, 10, 15 anos visualizar o seu impacto em estado adulto é importante para que não se tenham surpresas com árvores que afinal se podem tornar um problema num pequeno jardim.

Seguem-se os desenhos técnicos de plantação e de construção, que normalmente são aprovados por um engenheiro, dependendo do tipo de construção. O faseamento da implementação por etapas é essencial principalmente em grandes projetos.

 

A implementação é o primeiro teste ao design, é quando todos os estudos feitos são postos em prática, o teste à vegetação escolhida será feito no médio longo prazo. É normal que plantas morram e tenham que ser substituídas ou mudadas de lugar, como seres vivos que são podem por vezes ser imprevisíveis.

 

Ver crescer um jardim, principalmente quando algumas decisões são da nossa responsabilidade e, quando no final, tudo funciona é uma sensação muito positiva e gratificante, podemos experimentar combinações de diferentes plantas, cores e texturas.

 

Para o estudo de um jardim aconselhamos sempre a consulta a um profissional da área.

Bring the Inside Outside with the Modulnova Outdoor Kitchen

outdoor kitchen

To furnish an outdoor space with a kitchen that is not only functional, but also complies with precise canons of aesthetics and ergonomics.

This is the philosophy that has prompted Modulnova to create the new outdoor kitchen previewed during Milan Design Week 2016.

The new project combines rigorous lines and rational organization of space, to meet the needs of functionality and practicality of those who love the great outdoors.

On a patio, the terrace of a metropolitan penthouse, by the pool or in a flourishing garden: the Outdoor collection (designed by Andrea Bassanello) tastefully enhances any setting, encouraging the convivial pleasures of cooking and dining in the open air.

Epoxy-coated steel and Piasentina stone are the materials chosen for this new project, ideal to resist moisture, weathering, temperature changes and wear. The use of painted steel reflects a precise aesthetic choice: to take the kitchen outside the walls of the home, making it the protagonist of outdoor spaces.

Besides the classic barbecue grill, a pizza oven, a fryer, a teppanyaki grill and an induction burner (for traditional cooking), the system offers two storage zones (for wood and cooking utensils), a washing area, a beverage cooler, an ice machine and a basin, also in Piasentina stone.

 

(via internimagazine.com)

Fire block

The kitchen consists of a main block which has a wood-burning oven with storage and fronts which conceal both a fridge and an ice-maker.

floating workshop

A floating workshop is set at a right angle to the main block which has an integral barbecue pit and a deep stone sink. It connects to the table constructed from solid Teak slats and set with Pietra Piasentina stone block stools.

KETTAL MESH design Patricia Urquiola

Photos

The collection recalls architectural facades, which filter the surrounding environment without stopping the light and air flow. Industrial and natural materials, hard and soft surfaces, transparent and solid volumes are putted face to face in order to create this family of outdoor furniture based in contrasts. 

 

Therefore the structure is organized around a frame entirely made of aluminum, capable of hiding in the essentiality of its lines either the quality of the used materials and the chance of easy articulation in different compositions.

Expormim

This year two new collections by Lievore Altherr Molina Studio will take up a preeminent space in our stand at the Salone del Mobile: the sectional sofa Livitand the Falcata table. With them, we say goodbye to winter and officially start up the long-awaited outdoor season.

Livit

Livit is a sectional sofa allowing for many different compositions and designed to endure weather conditions. Do not trust its apparent simplicity; technology lies beyond and it has been the key to reconcile comfort with high design and sophistication.

Falcata

Tables are not just some legged thing. They can be really fun. For example,Falcata suggests a double game: in the significance level by mixing cultural codes and in the physical level by playing with perspective. Another smart combination of tradition and innovation.

Colecção MBrace da Dedon

MBRACE takes a joyfully unconventional approach to poolside furniture, bringing DEDON Fiber eating and a solid teak base together for the very first time. The result is an eye-catching, instantly likable collection of chairs—wingback, lounger, rocker and optional footstool—that captures the spirit of barefoot luxury while extending the DEDON design language into new, more Nordic territory. Conceived by Sebastian Herkner, a rising star of European design, MBRACE fully lives up to the welcoming gesture of its name. One experiences a warm, secure, cocooning feeling when being embraced by the chair’s extra-wide back, especially after a cool dip in the pool. Herkner designed the seat to be invitingly comfortable even late in the season, after the luxurious seat cushions have been stored away.

COLLECTION KETTAL BOMA BY RODOLFO DORDONI 

The Boma collection, designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Kettal, was born from the need of high performances of outdoor environment, without sacrificing the increasing demand for comfort that new products have to face. Therefore the structure is organized around a frame entirely made of aluminum, capable of hiding in the essentiality of its lines either the quality of the used materials and the chance of easy articulation in different compositions. On the base of this flexible and light support, soft seats, made of large cushions and different modularity, take place. The textile upholstery, that nowadays has nothing to envy to solutions for interior, completes the warm and cosy feeling the product was meant to communicate. We are facing a real system, capable to easily fit various situations and to be composed in several typologies of products.

Marcel Wanders and Vista Alegre present new porcelain collection at Maison & Objet

In collaboration with Vista Alegre, Marcel Wanders presents a choice selection of exquisite pieces that are a part of the Blue Ming collection at Maison & Objet, January 22-26, 2016. The items, which are very symmetrical with sculptural elements, highlight the Dutch heritage of the Delft Blue, creating the ornament of the pieces. Within each piece, you'll experience the mingling of two cultural histories and countries as the Dutch Delft Blue and the Cobalt Blue share heritage of past ages and forge a new language and artistic expression. Built from a cylinder, the pieces feature additional sculptural flower and leaf shapes to complement the blue graphics.

 

The pieces of this set that are serving as the launch for the complete Blue Ming collection include: the big tea cup and saucer, the espresso cup and saucer tea pot and sugar pot, a fruit bowl and soup terrine. The Blue Ming collection also features a candleholder and the flower vase, which are more sculptural iconic pieces that offer unique versatility. By removing the top of the vase, you create a small bowl in which to place chocolates or other small treats. Not to be outdone, the candleholder is also adaptable. In addition to a candle, it can be used to hold a flower, or it can work as an iconic piece to furnish your table. This high-end, well-made ceramic collection is completed by a range of plates: desert, bread & butter; soup, dinner, charger and serving. The borders of these pieces reveal different patterns and when stacked, you experience all their richness in a re-interpretation of the traditional Delft Blue.

 

The partnership between Marcel Wanders and Vista Alegre brings together two iconic creators of craft and design. With a Portuguese history that dates back to the 1800s, the Vista Alegre brand has become renown for its investment in luxurious innovation and artisan design. The collaboration with Vista Alegre represents for Marcel Wanders the chance to work with a manufacturer that shares his ability to continually evolve and adapt to social and aesthetic changes. With a mutual passion for producing exclusive, personalized porcelain pieces of the highest quality and functionality standards, the Blue Ming collection stands as a harmonious combination of tradition and modernity.

Best Product of 2015 by Archiproducts; Llar, a collection of bioethanol fireplaces by Gandia Blasco

“We wanted to work with a product that could transpose concepts that belong inside the home, such as a meeting around the hearth, to an outdoor space. Llar responds to this premise with a purely architectural aesthetic, where the proportion and composition of the product convey a certain clarity and presence that are typical of the modern movement, where the fire place was already considered a key architectural element in the home.” – Borja García –

Llar is a collection of bioethanol fireplaces made from lacquered steel, which are available in various sizes and colours: white, bronze, sand and anthracite – personalize it.

More than just an outdoor brazier, this is an elegant and sober designer burner, which turns any outdoor space into an extension of your home.

Llar is an original design by Borja García for Gandia Blasco.

Textile designs of tomorrow: Heimtextil showcases new trends for the homeColours, designs and materials; what the hot trends for the new year will look like

We all know the feeling; that longing for peace and quiet, for balance and authenticity. It is most urgent at times when everyday life crowds in and leaves us without breathing space. And it is precisely at such times that our own home is at its most important – as a place to withdraw to, a haven of well-being. It is a place, where we can surround ourselves with things that help us to relax, that stimulate us and with things that do us good. The notion of wellness, a feeling of well-being – these are the key features of the homes and lifestyle of the future. Heimtextil, international trade fair for home and contract textiles, has already provided this year's key slogan for furnishings in the run up to the trade fair, which is being held from 12 to 15 January 2016 in Frankfurt am Main: 'Well-Being 4.0'.

 

A team of six international design agencies has been commissioned by Heimtextil to identify four key trends for the home, under the heading of 'Well-Being 4.0”, the overall trend for 2016/2017. Here, 'Well-Being 4.0' describes scenarios for soft furnishings that create an inviting environment with that feel-good factor, a place to relax. Everything is directed towards a better quality of life, a greater sense of wellness. In this, technology and science enjoy a symbiotic relationship with textiles and related materials and play an important role in the endeavour. The notion of '4.0' is an allusion to the notion of 'Industry 4.0' and stands for smart, digital and personalised solutions. We take a brief look at the four major trends and at some of the new, trend-setting products from Heimtextil exhibitors in 2016.

 

 

Protect – a clean aesthetic and unfussy design. It defines a domestic style which offers protection, both in physical and mental terms and bases itself on a notion of calm, meditation and wellness. The colour palette for 'Protect' reflects its concept of purity and lightness.

 

Energise – an intuitive, highly energetic trend stream, which links human beings with technology and leads to a new level of energy, whereby light is used as a material to create immaterial forms. The colour palette shifts between strong and weak contrasts.

 

Nourish – this is the sustainable and ecological vision for well-being, where natural materials are paired with forward-looking design and where the dominant colours are green and earth tones.

 

 

Enrich – a trend that brings fashion to interior design and where opulence and highly ornamental elements echo our cultural past, at the same time as pointing us towards the future. Saturated colours, metallic accents and iconic patterns embody this fusion of influences from East and West.

New : wooden screen block by KIT-KURLY

KIT KURLY is a new concept for space separation which is a perfect decoration piece while creating a latticed wooden screen.

KIT KURLY is made to be a filter which, thanks to its curved shape splits the vision in a particular way: the solid forms and hallows created by the space and depth between the vertical slats are seen in an irregular way.

The space available behind the wooden screen becomes more animated. From certain angles, it disappears or comes more visible, depending on the eye position. 

KIT KULRY can be used outdoors or indoors depending on the type of wood chosen. It makes an elegant, light and modular fence or screen corresponding to Zen architecture, favoring an easy integration in its environment while facilitating movement in both living and working spaces.

KIT KURLY is the answer to your wish to create straight or curved screens in all spaces in your home, garden or office.

Biophilia by Stoft Studio

Biophilia is a collaboration-project with the ceramic manufacturer Zol Art in Sweden and was initiated for the exhibition “The New Map”. All items are manufactured by Zol Art and the project operates on a business model that shares profits 50/50 between the designer and the producer.

The collection consists of four organically shaped ceramic vessels, each symbolising a step in a plant’s growing process. Due to their decreasing width, each of the vessels can be stacked inside one another, creating multiple possible combinations.

The chamotte stoneware bowl “Capsula” symbolises the protective seedpod from which everything begins. Embraced by the coarse stoneware the “Petalis” vase sprouts, a sheer porcelain vessel which has been allowed to blossom out like porcelain objects historically also have done. The vase then branches out forming the pitcher “Truncus”, which draws its inspiration from how the craftsmanship and mass production of ceramics today struggle in different directions. At the very top the small earthenware vase “Spore” is resting, waiting to take root elsewhere by also functioning as a small vase for seedlings.

C'est Chic! Designed in Quebec

Chic & Basta is a new online store which presents a curated collection of products from contemporary designers, makers and artisans from Quebec.


With now some twenty contemporary designers and craftsmen from Quebec available on its online store, Chic & Bastacreates a link between lovers of beautiful objects and those who make them.

Chic & Basta was founded on the simple idea of supporting and promoting the independent Quebec creators who produce handmade design objects (or manufactured in small batch runs), that are authentic, contemporary and of great aesthetic beauty

Traveling the world of creators, Chic & Basta selects a carefully curated collection of beautiful and practical products for the home.


Among the objects of designers and craftsmen presented on Chic & Basta we find exclusives from: madebyild, Marie-José Gustave, Materia Prima, S. Chapados, and Sainte Marie design textile.

"Our ambition in this new adventure is for Chic & Basta to become an ambassador for the creators of contemporary objects in Quebec", explains Manon Martin and Louis Durocher, the two founders.

The two associates hope to showcase Quebec artists by sharing with you their passion for their work, and their love of beautiful, unique objects, objects made to last.

Perfectly imperfect objects

Chic & Basta loves and looks for perfectly imperfect objects, small series, small productions, high-quality objects that combine simplicity of function and aesthetics.

The land is its artisans

In presenting the products and the portraits of their creators, Chic & Basta wants to create a connection between lovers of beautiful objects and those who make them: Quebec designers, artisans and small manufacturers.

 

Buy less, buy better

Manon Martin and Louis Durocher believe that a people’s soul is expressed in their objects and craft, that handmade objects, products of local artisans, and design objects made in small series, are more beautiful, last longer, and ultimately provide more satisfaction than goods mass produced by our industrial society.

Their selection has a preference for creators and Quebec artists who focus on quality rather than quantity, and who create contemporary objects.

 

The founders

After more than 20 years working in communications and web marketing, the two founders, Manon Martin and Louis Durocher, husband and wife living in the Eastern Townships in the Province of Quebec, founded Chic & Basta.

Tendências Heimtextil 2016/2017 'Well-being 4.0', Parque Temático

Heimtextil 2016 Feira Internacional de têxteis lar e para hotelariaFrankfurt – de 12 a 15 de Janeiro de 2016

trend protect
trend protect

Felix Diener. Todos eles fazem parte da equipa que delineou as tendências em design de interiores para a Heimtextil.

Os novos temas foram definidos através de uma abordagem integrada, que recupera o foco do design nas pessoas com um forte apelo aos sentidos. O tema ‘well-being 4.0’ transmite um sentimento de calma e relaxamento. Tudo está pensado para oferecer uma vida melhor e bem-estar. A tecnologia e a ciência desempenham um papel fulcral nos têxteis. O número 4.0 apela à indústria 4.0 e representa soluções inteligentes, digitais e personalizadas. A ideia é despertar sentimentos positivos e respostas a estímulos com o toque de um botão. “Precisamos de encontrar formas de ligar o que é natural ao artificial”, comentou Lisa Douet durante a conferência, sublinhando um dos grandes desafios. “Para além da tecnologia, temos de assegurar que os materiais naturais e produtos artesanais têm lugar no design do futuro.” Neste aspecto, tanto o Livro de Tendências como o Parque Temático oferecem projectos pioneiros. As previsões das tendências são apresentadas em detalhe no novo website. Alguns projectos e informações estão já disponíveis em www.heimtextil-theme-park.com.


Livro de Tendências com três partes

O novo Livro de Tendências apresenta 3 partes diferentes. A primeira é um guia que contém quatro temas assentes em materiais, designs e cores.

A segunda é uma paleta de cores que apresenta a gama das próximas tendências e pretende ser uma ferramenta de trabalho útil. A última parte é um editorial que ilustra as tendências ‘well-being 4.0’. O editorial recorre ao uso de plantas para apelar aos sentidos do leitor, coloca o foco em minerais valiosos e têxteis terapêuticos e define quais as cores que representam o sentimento de bem-estar.

Parque temático Heimtextil ‘well-being 4.0’ – Tendências 2016/2017 – os temas das tendências


Protect: o que nos faz bem

Esta tendência anuncia uma estética clean e um design discreto. Este tema anda de mãos dadas com uma variedade de produtos para bem-estar e programas detox. O silêncio apresenta-se como figura central. Torna-se no antídoto para este mundo no qual vivemos constantemente “ligados”, mas do qual desejamos conseguir desconectar-nos para podermos fazer algo de bom por nós. Esta tendência centra-se na protecção das nossas necessidades físicas e psicológicas.


Energise: sonhos digitais

As pessoas usam a tecnologia para melhorar o seu sentimento de bem-estar. As fronteiras entre o online e o offline estão cada vez mais ténues. E o mundo digital está a invadir o nosso mundo físico. Neste processo, a luz está a tornar-se uma nova forma de criar formas intangíveis e de destacar contornos dinâmicos. Ao mesmo tempo, as cores brilhantes e fluorescentes vibram, contrastando com os tons mais escuros de azul. Esta tendência de energia positiva utiliza uma estética com brilho intenso, padrões de caleidoscópio e designs atléticos.


Nourish: design sensorial

As paisagens naturais e urbanas convergem para um mundo sustentável. O foco principal deste tema é criar espaços verdes. A paleta de cores celebra os verdes, bem como os castanhos-escuros e os cinzentos, em harmonia com elementos como a pedra e a terra. Os materiais naturais são conjugados com design pioneiro. Produtos artesanais desempenham um papel importante no processo, salientando a beleza da fonte.


Enrich: apelo a todos os sentidos

O foco principal é colocado em elementos decorativos e opulentos que misturam referências culturais com o passado e o futuro. Os elementos ornamentais abrilhantam, os materiais mais clássicos são os que saltam à vista. As cores ricas como a ameixa e o carmesim abundam juntamente com o dourado metálico e elementos em bronze.

Uma pitada do Oriente é misturada com padrões icónicos que reinterpretam o classismo com esplendor.

Ambiente Trends 2016 have, as their leitmotif, the notion of established products to be “preserved and developed” Stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano stage the trends

Keen to experiment, futuristic, reductionist and original – the trends in the consumer-goods sector for the forthcoming season offer a broad church of design. From 12 to 16 February 2016, the Ambiente Trend Show in Frankfurt will showcase a spectacular presentation of the latest trends in four themed scenarios: “artisanal gardening”, “futuristic couture”, “functional simplicity” and “composing freedom”. The trends, which have been identified by the trend bureau stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano, are inspired by recent directions in design, art, fashion and architecture. To create the thematic scenarios, the trend consultants choose products of Ambiente exhibitors and allow people to experience the trends of the future at first hand, using specific concrete examples. As the leading international trade fair for the consumer-goods sector, Ambiente is able to reflect the trends in the areas covered by 'Living', 'Giving' and 'Dining' like no other event and offers an overview of the entire sector, together with its new products and innovations. There is a brochure, available in advance, and packed with information on trends in colours, materials and stylistic combinations.

 

The process does not necessarily mean that there must be a completely new approach – successful products and best sellers are often just developments of tried and tested things that we have known and loved for some time. The leitmotif “preserve and develop” runs through all four thematic scenarios and underlines the increasingly high demands that designers, manufacturers and consumers make on consumer goods. Particularly popular are products, which are produced in environmentally and socially acceptable ways. In combination with the opportunities afforded by modern materials, manufacture and processing, there emerge solutions which are extremely successful in both their intelligence and creative feel. “The search for new forms of expression in design leads, on the one hand, to painstaking, serious and profound attempts to grapple with the issues and, on the other hand, however, gives people the courage to experiment with forms and materials,” says Annetta Palmisano from the trend bureau stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano. The four themed scenarios can be seen in Galleria 1, during Ambiente.

Artisanal gardening: authentic and original

Inspiration from the garden: with warm shades of late summer and original materials, this trend brings nature into the home. The boundaries between inside and outside dissolve away to create a relaxed atmosphere for the living space with an ambience that is inspired both by hippie tradition and folklore. A palette of strong colours comes together with natural materials such as clay and ceramic, wood, bamboo, linen, wool, denim, velvet and wild leather options. Traditional processes, such as braiding, quilting, embroidery, carving, engraving and enamelling, all set the materials in 'natural' contexts. As befits this, vases, quilts and cushions are decorated with strong, floral patterns – be it tone-on-tone or more lively colourings. Macramé, patchwork and appliqué work are celebrating a joyful comeback. Vintage products and imaginative 'finds' complete the harmony of designs to be found in living rooms.

 

Futuristic couture: radiant aesthetic

The combination of innovative manufacturing technologies such as thermoplastic processes and traditional production methods opens up new possibilities and makes it possible to turn plastic, Perspex, rhinestones, metal and neoprene into decorative and recyclable products. Sophisticated molecular patterns, shadows and delicate filigree textures provide features that surprise us and lend an air of science fiction with a strange and unfamiliar aesthetic to accessories in the home – including glasses, lamps and jewellery. Thanks to technical developments, such as 3D printing, the limits of the possible are being moved outwards and, hence, make it possible to envisage all kinds of tailor-made solutions. Shades of light green and blue, nickel and pink meet sparkly elements and create futuristic designs that play with fakes, breaks and artificial takes.

 

Functional simplicity: getting it just right

Matter-of-fact, simple and high quality – with a whole new monochrome colour palette in white and grey tones, this trend concentrates on maximising the functionality of the product. Reductionist design throws the focus onto outstanding workmanship and is inspired by the applications of materials in sport and architecture. The use of glass, stainless steel, marble, concrete and rubber in the manufacture underline the durability of the products and contribute to a sporty, relaxed and unisex look. Thanks to clean lines, basic geometrical forms, net materials and micro textures, these products radiate an aesthetic that is dominated by symmetry. This form of high-calibre minimalism, therefore, meets the most stringent conditions for giving birth to the classics of tomorrow.

 

Composing freedom: unconventionality without inhibitions

Strong, saturated colours and a bright colour mix in the product design are what define this trend, which will just not fit into any pigeon hole: contrasting features are brought together to display some astonishing combinations with a really individual feel. A number of different textiles, artificial animal skins, highly polished metals and spray-painted visual effects combine with embossed reptile images, animal prints and soft-definition jacquards. The joy of experimentation and combination makes for a design spectrum that is full of contrast, without fear of trespassing on any other particular style. The result is colourful chaos, created with branded products and no-name favourites, which are linked via one particular constant: the original carefree approach.

Colecção SILAÏ da GAN para o interior, EL BORDADO CONTEMPORÁNEO

SILAÏ es la nueva colección de la diseñadora belga Charlotte Lancelot para GAN, la marca indoor de GANDIABLASCO.

SILAÏ significa “puntada” en indi y es una reinterpretación del bordado petit point.

Inspirada en la labor de los artesanos, Charlotte Lancelot ha creado una colección contemporánea que busca resaltar la técnica del bordado a mano, aplicando cambios de escala, de uso y de contexto.

“Esta es una técnica que la gente conoce, que les acerca a sus recuerdos y les genera emociones”, asegura la diseñadora.

SILAÏ celebra la belleza de las técnicas antiguas, hechas a mano, donde queda reflejado el tiempo, el cuidado y la paciencia que se necesitan para realizarlas. Es un “savoir-faire” que se está perdiendo, ya que cada vez tenemos menos tiempo y nos servimos de objetos de compra rápida, que no dudamos en sustituir.

Bordado sobre una retícula plástica llamada “canevás”, el petit point son puntadas sencillas y rápidas en diagonal. El diseño de estas alfombras incluye cuatro tipos de puntadas diferentes que, combinadas entre sí, crean una bonita armonía de colores y texturas.

El resultado: alfombras muy ligeras, cómodas y con un diseño único.

A la alfombra como punto de partida se agregan piezas coordinadas: cojines, pufs y mesas auxiliares de

madera forrada, que dan continuidad a la colección y complementan el diseño de espacios de uso residencial, público o comercial.

La colección SILAÏ está disponible en cuatro colores diferentes, inspirados en la variedad de patrones de

los azulejos que se usaban para decorar los suelos.

El pequeño puf de la colección es ligero y fácil de mover, cumpliendo la función de un asiento adicional

o reposapiés.

Por otra parte, la combinación de tres mesas bajas permite formar una gran mesa de centro. De este

modo, cada elemento se puede utilizar junto o por separado, gracias a su juego de medidas coordinado.

Con una forma fresca e ingeniosa de bordar alfombras y mobiliario, SILAÏ viste espacios y genera ambientes contemporáneos que nos recuerdan las técnicas de siempre. Técnicas que hoy siguen utilizando el mismo tipo de aguja que se usa desde los inicios de la humanidad para hacer puntadas funcionales o decorativas.

colecção DOCKS da Gandía Blasco agora também em antracite

El mueble como concepto abierto para todos y para todo: espacio, tiempo, posición y composición. Ese es el carácter de DOCKS, disponible también en color antracita como novedad 2015.

Diseñada por Romero Vallejo para GANDIABLASCO, esta colección de mobiliario exterior tiene por esencia su estructura, un elemento clave de soporte, equilibrio y estética puramente arquitectónica.

La modularidad infinita de la colección parte de esa misma estructura, en combinación con diferentes piezas de asiento, reposabrazos, cojines y respaldos para formar sofás, camas y áreas de descanso más complejas.

“… un análisis de las diferentes formas de sentarse, incluyendo modos improvisados e informales, ayuda a definir la geometría global de la colección”, explican los diseñadores.

Inspirada en los procesos de fabricación industrial y con reminiscencias a objetos de uso cotidiano como los pallets, esta estructura debe su ligereza y portabilidad a su elaboración a base de perfilería en aluminio.

Disponible en tres medidas diferentes, su detalle constructivo la hace una pieza apilable e intercambiable,

ideal para crear una gran variedad de configuraciones en todo tipo de ambientes.

“Se trata de un sistema modular de relaciones abiertas a la vida, en diferentes momentos”, afirma Mariano Vallejo.

Además de la nueva versión de estructura en antracita, DOCKS también ilumina los espacios exteriores

con sus colores anodizado, blanco, arena y bronce, y con diferentes opciones de tapizado de asientos y cojines.

DOCKS es diseño y modularidad sin límites para exteriores.

Calma becomes the first Spanish brand to win the Red Dot award: Best of the Best since 2011

The Spanish outdoor furniture brand Calma won the Red Dot award: Best of the Best 2015 for the design of OM sunshade, becoming the first Spanish firm to win the Red Dot competition’s top award since 2011. OM collection’s designer, Andreu Carulla, and Calma’s art director, Ricard Vicens, collected the award last june in Essen (Germany), in front of more than 1,200 people from 40 different countries who attended the glamorous Red Dot Gala. The Red Dot Award: Product Design, which celebrates the 60th anniversary this year, places Calma as one of the innovative firms in the international design field.


The Red Dot’s top award, Best of the Best, with which Calma has been awarded, was presented to 81 products from 4,928 candidates from 56 different countries. OM sunshade captivated the Red Dot jury, formed by 38 renowned and independent experts from 25 countries, because of its quality and innovative design. The jury highlighted: “The OM sunshade merges a clear and elegant design with highly refined functionality. The innovative, outstandingly smart rotating system is highly fascinating as it allows for comfortable opening and closing. The sunshade can be used in many different configurations and enhances almost any ambiance. It can serve as standing umbrella or attached to the wall and also as space partition. Moreover, the use of high-quality materials gives it high durability.”


OM collection

OM is a collection of shades, designed and manufactured 100% in Spain, which reinvent and bring a twist on the so characteristic umbrellas from the Mediterranean coast. Its versatility possibilities its adaptation to any space and functionality, creating fresh and relaxing environment.

Because of its innovative unfolding mechanism, the umbrella can be adapted to the needs of the moment, whether it is fully, half or hardly open, providing different shade for each position. When the canopy is closed, a simple mechanism allows a 360° rotation of the canopy creating a vane effect when the wind blows.

OM is available in three different models:

The central pole umbrella, which allows a 360º opening and is available with a 60 cm base or a 22 cm base to fix it to the floor. The structure is in extruded aluminium anodized in black or silver.

Floating Flower Garden no Maison et Objet de 4 a 8 de setembro em paris

The teamLab – FLOATING FLOWER GARDEN SPACE / Have you ever opened the doors to a garden with thousands of levitating and perfumed flowers? This exceptional and highly poetic sensory experience will be presented to you by teamLab at the entrance of hall 7.

After last season’s dreamy banquet of birds and flowering cherry branches, the Japanese techno-artists return to Villepinte with an amazing botanical fairyland. 2,300 suspended flowers, with their roots anchored overhead, float in a vivid white bubble. Petals, leaves and pistils blossom in the silence of the carnal and mysterious garden. The place evolves since the flowers grow each day thanks to the technological

prowess of teamLab. As if endowed with a conscience, they rise when the spectator approaches, creating a dome over his head, and then descend once again. If visitors stand in a group together, the botanical chorus is amplified but the flowers remain evasive.

This 3-D metaphor takes inspiration from a zen kôan, those part-fable, part-poetic Buddhist enigmas. TeamLab’s founder Toshiyuki Inoko tells us that in the 13th century, a zen priest left his meditative retreat in the mountains to teach the path of awakening. One day, he pointed to a flower in a garden: “People today see it as if they were in a dream”, he said. “The Heaven and I come from the same roots. Everything around me and myself as well are made of the same substance”.

This is the installation’s philosophy: the delicate link it weaves between visitors and the ecosystem offers a way to restore our sense of unity with Nature. By modeling the wonders, the experience of a flower garden awakens us through the magic of algorithm and introduces the visitor to teamLab’s ecological message.

CIN celebra 15 anos de criação de cores únicas

São 15 cores fortes e inspiradoras criadas de acordo com as últimas tendências do sector da decoração e design de interiores. A CIN destaca Pink Power (E660) como Cor do Ano, celebrando um 2015 feminino, no qual a cor rosa volta a invadir as casas, os quartos e todos os seus pormenores e recantos.

Paixão, emoção, sofisticação e estilo são os conceitos inspiradores básicos do Catálogo de Tendências de Cor da CIN, há 15 anos a tornar todos os lares cada vez mais especiais e pessoais. A CIN é já uma marca de referência no mercado nacional e internacional de tintas e vernizes, com elevada procura pelos consumidores e profissionais mais exigentes.

Tendências de Cor 2015

2015 é um ano dedicado à mulher, marcado pela cor dos batons e do amor: Pink Power. Quente e viva, esta é uma cor ligada ao universo feminino. Doce, suave e ao mesmo tempo forte, a cor Pink Power não passa despercebida no mundo das cores.

As restantes opções do catálogo distinguem-se pela elegância e harmonia que proporcionam. A primeira é Chalk White, a intemporal cor branca, inspirada na textura do giz e no mate dos suspiros. Este branco contém uma nota ínfima de cinza que o torna mais moderno. A seguinte é Perfect Grey, uma exploração do cinzento encontrado na natureza e um equilíbrio perfeito entre o claro e o escuro. Lumière Noire é a terceira cor das Tendências do Ano e absorve todas as outras. É sublimada pela matéria e pela luz, emanando sofistificação e neutralidade.

Miss Rose, como o próprio nome indica, é um tom de cor-de-rosa mas esbatido. É a “miss” das cores, pois é associada à mulher contemporânea, ao perfume e à simplicidade. Segue-se Just Mauve, um tom tirado do céu entre o arroxear do final do dia e o início da noite. Inspirado na perda de cor das folhas e das pétalas, é uma mistura de cinzento com um toque de roxo. Deep Taupe encerra as tonalidades suaves, chique e trendy, é uma cor inspirada na Natureza que cria ambientes quentes e interiores calmos.

O catálogo propõe ainda mais cinco cores vivas, para além de Pink PowerYuzu Dream é um tom amarelo inspirado na cor do citrino japonês que confere dinamismo e frescura a qualquer ambiente. Segue-se Coral Blossom, a cor mais poética e floral do catálogo. Inspirada no tom dos corais e das peónias em floração, esta é a cor ideal para promover boas energias em casa. Turquoise Paradise é o contraste da anterior, é a cor do mar, do paraíso aquático, do Verão, da água e do exótico. Após o tom turquesa, surge um azul quase eléctrico, Cobalt Blue, uma cor pura, recheada de vivacidade e sofisticação. A cor decorrente éJacaranda, um tom que oscila entre o lilás e o azul arroxeado, inspirado na flor da árvore Jacaranda.

Três cores inspiradas em materiais de decoração e arquitetura terminam o catálogo. Green Marble é um cinzento esverdeado moderno, inspirado na cor do mármore verde que está de regresso nos interiores. Depois do mármore surge o metal: Gold Taffeta é a penúltima cor do catálogo, um dourado luxuoso, iluminado pelo brilhante do ouro e a suavidade da seda. A 15ª e última cor é Like Copper, inspirada no cobre, o material que impera nesta estação, tanto no design de objectos como no de interiores.

Todas as cores estão disponíveis em Cashmere, VinylMatt, VinylClean, VinylSoft, VinylSilk, TestiT e Cinacryl mate e acetinado.

boqa a empresa que trouxe cor e as cadeiras acapulco para os jardins

For people who had visited Mexico know that this country is magic.

The culture, or cultures at plural, the mix of tradition Mesoamericaine and Spanic influence create a singulary area of discovery and exchange.

The blend of color is everywhere. Architecture, where yellow and copper ocher are cross with blue cobalt over colonial building.

On the market place, where pomegranates, mangoes and guavas succeed in harmony. Also in nature, where the turquoise Caribbean Sea is rivaled only by the beauty of the vegetation of the Barranca del Cobre.

Mexican handcraft doesn't escape to this rule: craftsmanship is undeniable, originality is obvious, colors are everywhere. It is in this context that originated in the 60s a masterpiece of Mexican design, now considered retro and internationally known as the Acapulco Chair.

The result for us is only a logical consequence. The time spent traveling across markets and flea markets of Mexico in search of original pieces. And then one day, the desire to give a new life to this classic design in gardens, terraces and interiors of French. See what this alchemy have to give in the French countryside. Boqa was born.

Today, a group of Mexican artisans and Boqa revisited the Acapulco chair and offer original and durable parts for comfort and aesthetics, weatherability, wide choice of colors, collapsible and stackable models to optimize storage space and transport.

Our goal is to make available the design and retro styles of Acapulco chair by focusing on our favorite and a unique experience with Mexican artisans. In fact, we deal with them directly, without intermediaries.

This approach is a real benefit:

This allows us to have a great product availability and to avoid long and not mastered waiting times before receiving our products. Boqa is a small structure that has its own stock of seats in France. In addition, we offer a wide range of colors (between 4 and 16 colors depending on the model) and maintain the flexibility to send you the truly original designs and trendy colors.

In addition, through a presence in France and Mexico, we are working closely with the Mexican artisans and ensure that they benefit from our experience in the field: adaptation of new models, defining new colors, return of experience. Finally, we have our own garment factory in France where we develop several prototypes and even produce some models, in strict compliance with our quality charter in response to our customers' requirements.

From the craftsman to your home without intermediaries that's our concept in BOQA.

So if like us you like the design of the chair Acapulco, come and discover our products.

topiária nos jardins contemporâneos

A topiária é a arte de podar plantas em formas ornamentais. Consiste na prática da jardinagem que dá formas artísticas às plantas recorrendo à poda para esse efeito. Conhecem-se evidências da prática de topiária desde os tempos romanos, e voltou em força durante o renascimento Italiano culminado com a obra de André Le Nôtre, o criador dos jardins de Versalhes em 1662. Le Nôtre recorreu à utilização de várias espécies (principalmente o buxo) para obter formas cónicas e piramidais.

gramíneas

Família de monocotiledóneas, também conhecida por Poáceas (Poaceae), que se distribui por cerca de 700 géneros e 12 000 espécies. São plantas herbáceas, embora existam espécies que alcançam enorme tamanho, como, por exemplo, o bambu do género Bambusa, em que se encontram várias espécies que se podem considerar lenhosas.

As Gramíneas (Gramineae) são cosmopolitas, encontrando-se praticamente em todo o mundo.

As plantas desta família são perenes, anuais ou vivazes, geralmente rizomatosas e estolhosas, com os caules tipo colmo. São caules simples ou ramificados, mais ou menos endurecidos, ocos nos entrenós e com tabiques internos nos nós. Salvo raras exceções, não são ramificados.

As folhas são alternas, dísticas, normalmente lineares a filiformes, de nervação geralmente paralelinérvea, invaginantes. São formadas por bainha, lígula, geralmente membranácea, e limbo.


Esta a definição destas plantas mas num jardim algumas das espécies desta família de plantas caracterizam-se plea sua transparência, leveza e a maniera que reflectem a luz especialmente ao pôr-do-sol. As Pennisetum e Festuca são das minhas preferidas.

swingrest by dedon Iconic heritage, playful heart

Though it shares part of its name and most of its structure with DEDON's iconic NESTREST hanging lounger, the new SWINGREST by Daniel Pouzet is in a class all its own. The ultimate hanging lounger, SWINGREST is one of the first products to emerge from Dedon Island resort, our Outdoor Living Lab in Siargao, Philippines. Pouzet, co-architect and designer of Dedon Island, took his inspiration for the SWINGREST from the extra-high ceilings of the resort's villas. Borrowing the basket-like bottom from his earlier creation, the NESTREST, he has managed to create an altogether new work that feels even more spacious (and fits more people) while seeming to take up less space. Perfect for hanging on the terrace or veranda, or even indoors, the SWINGREST is distinguished by the purity and simplicity of its concept. Rather than complicate it unnecessarily, Pouzet decided to focus instead on refining the details of the design, developing, for instance, the SWINGREST's elegant suspension system, its 180° rotating tabletop and the specially-created cord that wraps around its exposed tubing. Available in a Natural colored weave, SWINGREST comes with an optional fabric curtain cover that's perfect for making shade and giving privacy while letting those inside see out.

The seat cushion is supported by a semi-transparent micro fabric.

Lighting bollard flindt by Louis Poulsen Lighting wins i-novo eco award 2015 archiexpo

The Flindt bollard is fitted with two LED light sources (approx. 585 lumens) positioned at the top of the light aperture so as to emit both horizontal and vertical light. This placement and the light aperture design result in a lateral light distribution covering an angle of more than 180°. The fixture thereby illuminates itself, and contributes to the total light experience as a visual element.


Its extremely simple and functional design means the bollard can be used in almost any architectural context, and blends into natural settings in a peaceful and harmonic way. The organic light pattern, combined with its simple design, makes the bollard ideal for one-sided, zigzag and curved configurations. The facility to adjust the bollard +/-10° following installation ensures perfect light harmony between the fixtures.
