Freedom Of Creation - Andreia Chaves INVISIBLE SHOES

Andreia Chaves, Brazilian fashion designer who works between Italy and Ireland, has launched her first commercial studio series “Invisible Shoe” at the 2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, at an exhibition organized by the automotive company in collaboration with designer Herve Leger. Freedom Of Creation (FOC), Dutch company for innovative designs using advanced 3D printing technologies pioneered by FOC itself, has contributed to the creation of the “Invisible Shoe” series by manufacturing the external structure of this futuristic shoe using 3D printing. This first presentation of “Invisible Shoe” is now followed by a launch on the Asian market in association with I.T. Hong Kong and with the opening of the retailers’ new store in Beijing.

The Invisible Shoe by Andreia Chaves is available in two different versions and explores the concept of invisibility by playing with a camouflage effect created by the reflecting surfaces of the shoe.By mirroring what it stands on, the shoe somehow seems to hide or delete itself, blending completely into its surroundings.

NENDO growing vases



 

NENDO exhibited a glass object “growing vases” for a Czech glass and lighting company “Lasvit” in collaboration with Fabio Novembre
During this year's Salone, an exhibition of three designs by three designers including Mathieu Lehanneur and nendo under the art direction of designer Fabio Novembre showcased the artistry of venerable Czech Bohemian glass maker Lasvit's glassblowers.
NENDO were assigned the abstract theme 'cocoon', and asked to create work that would directly convey the quixotic appeal of glass as something that is impractical and incomplete, but provides a breath of fresh air, opening up new possibilities. NENDO decided to take the brief in a playful direction, and to suggest both breathing and the incomplete by displaying the metal pipes used by glassblowers, still attached to the glass objects that they were used to make.
By turning the pipes into flowers and branches and the glass into a vase,
NENDO literally turned convention on its head, making flowers blooming in vases into vases blooming from flowers to represent the flower bulbs that draw nutrients from plants through photosynthesis and store new life.

Self Discipline by Nika Zupanc



 

POMPON LAMP - Bring waves of boldness into rationally organized dwellings is its high-class mission. The moment it falls from the ceiling it becomes an obvious imposer. High on shine ropes leave little to ponder: you want to touch them, even steal a sneaky peek, just to see where all the glow is coming from. While it may seem like something that is totally content to be reduced to yet another fatally beautiful thing, its bold, cold curves tell a different story. Next time you will think. Twice? HOMEWORK CHAIR - You’ve rested your body on different types of seating devices, but have you ever tried to place something underneath you and make it come closer? It has every detail that the first league offices want you to have, except that it’s not afraid of being delicate, slightly deranged, and otherworldly. The hi-tech, retro-look mechanism zooms in and out with the help of a sleek handle, while the brass wheels dance all over the place.
HOMEWORK TABLE - Where can all the evidence of dangerous liaisons be stashed? Well, in the pocket of course, and what a fabulous pocket it is. The monolith business meaning table can elegantly unhook and open up like a true pulp-fiction novel, letting out a fan construction of pleated textile. This is where you can keep all your bits and bobs and paperwork of exceptional importance like bills and, well, dirty words hidden under the harmlessly-looking surface.
HOMEWORK CABINET - The prêt-à-porter got all emotional about conventional and convenient storage methods, causing constant clashes and other messy encounters among them. After all, they were not made to be thrown into darkness. For people that merely yawn in the presence of a walk-in closet, a wardrobe cabinet on brass wheels—with a paper fan that plays the role of the drawers—provides an interesting piece of fashion advice. Its capacity shrinks and expands with the number of little black dresses or trench coats inside, but it is always stylishly belted with a plush silk band.
