I am very happy to share with you the work of this Italian designer, Francesca Bonfrate. The chair called "Calla" as the flower, looks like the flower and it is comfortable as well, made in soft material. Designed for Martini's, an Italian furniture company, I hope we can buy it soon.

That Scandinavian Design is going strong is not a surprise. The group Muuto ( Finish word for fresh prospective) selects young talent full Scandinavian designers and they live them free to design everyday products. The result is an incredible collections. One of my favourite is the OTO100 storage system in glass fiber, designed by Pil Bredahal. A storage for modern nomads.

Maarten Kolk is the author of Bolted a book that I just received on my desk and let me tell you I was VERY happy to have it. This young dutch designer (graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven) presented first his collection of incredible images about vegetables in Milan a couple of years ago. His work is based on his vegetable garden, where Maarten registered the plants growth. He took notes about what happened and doing so he makes us more interested in the beautiful results, reminding us that we know so little about the vegetables we buy in the supermarket. We just look for a perfect pakkage of salad, but the real product has a complete different beauty, colours and shapes. The book is a photo document and the work of Maarten has been even called "eco-art". I think his concept is a way to make us more aware of the importance of nature in our life.

Mario Minale and Kuniko Maeda (both Graduated in the IM Master dep. at the Design Academy Eindhoven) are the designers behind this Chroma Key furniture serie. I love this Long Stool, an object both conceptual and practical. You can see more products of this line at the ToolsGalerie in Paris till August 26th.

Here the beautiful "Stuhlhockerbank" (chair stool bench) concept of the young german designer Yvonne Fehling. The series of chairs is a sitting concept for urban spaces made in oak.
I find them really beautiful and I would love to find them in parks, stations or even bust stops.
They would make the waiting time much more poetic!

You may have seen on magazines the incredible work of Gemma Comas. I love how she uses the light and how she makes you to want more, more of those beautiful still life, more interiors or food shoots. I just thinks she can really translate a feeling or a product identiy into her photographs.

Via the Young Designers web I discovered these young Italian designers duo. Enrico Bosa and Isabella Lovero did graduate at the Politecnico in Milan. Since 2003 they are working togheter, their studio en&is did developpe these containers line for the Italian EME, a company specialized in kitchen cutlery. Once you stock up the containers you have a beautiful object in melammina. I just like the object in itself.
