Few words are enough: elegance, simplicity and creativity. This is how
we imagine the world of tomorrow. For now, here is a selection of projects
that heal the soul and protect the planet

ENVELOPED IN LIGHT

Two models and different colour variations for Vertigo, a suspension lamp designed by Costance Guisset, who has described it with these words: “It's a den lamp; it envelops you creating a free atmosphere. Due to its extreme lightness, it loses its balance and turns slowly. Vertigo seems to float and, when switched on, it projects a game of shadows on the wall." Produced by Petit Friture.

TRIBUTE TO THE PAST

Rice reinterprets the beauty of hand-made majolica bricks in stoneware, with a glossy finish and deliberately irregular surfaces. Three modular sizes - 15x15cm, 5x15cm and 7.5x20cm - with straight edges for a side-by-side setting. A neutral palette - White, Natural and Gray with touches of Blue - is intertwined with three motifs inspired by nature. It is part of the Crogiolo collection, a name that represents the creative legacy of Marazzi's historic artistic laboratory.

NENDO'S LANTERNS

The Hyori lamp collection is inspired by a tradition dating back to the Edo period. In its reinterpretation, Studio Nendo overturns the shape of the lantern by adding joint points on the edges in order to create ten different models. Moreover, to add elasticity, washi paper has been replaced with highly translucent silk. Dedicated to the lantern ma nufacturer Kojima Shōten.

FOR THE VEGETABLE GARDEN

Mulching protects plants from weeds. The same occurs in nature when the leaves cover the ground at the base of the trees. In the picture, the 100% hydro pressed hemp felt cloth with no added glues, 100% compostable after 6/9 months, has been designed for this purpose.

ARCHITECTURAL LANDSCAPES

The space, conceived as an intimate and hidden architecture, is located in Brussels, in the back of a luxuriant garden. The volume has been built on a floating and asymmetrical aerial wing platform to create greater lightness. The U-shaped slit on the ceiling lets in natural and neutral light. The project carries the signature of LABscape Architecture & Interior, a studio based in Brussels, Milan and New York.

THE SCENT OF LIFE

The Orto Parisi perfume collection by Alessandro Gualtieri, a well-known Italian nose, has been inspired by the fragrances of Vincenzo's garden, his grandfather.
