a complex network of organic material invades the architecture at the palais de tokyo in paris, in brazilian artist henrique oliveira’s ‘baitogogo’. the installation is a matrix of sculptural vegetation — unraveling, twisting, and plunging from existing pillars and beams. the massive form is both a hybrid of mediums and disciplines as well as a dimensional synthesis of site-specific structural elements. oliveira, known for his architectural integrations, manipulates the space by both extending and multiplying the columns, encasing the viewer in a dizzying circuit of knotted, root-like material. in a communion of urban design, plant life, and biology, the artist generates an immense audience reaction to the unexpected fusion of sculpture and space.

recent Industrial Design graduate from Wentworth Institute of Technology and am looking for freelance and part time work in the greater Boston area.

“Putting a little extra fun into dinner time and boardroom meetings, this four poster table uses its structure to suspend a central GEO lampshade and eight hanging chairs that sway playfully. This design creates an exceptionally divergent experience and aesthetic, creating a room within a room, with chairs that float around the table, it also makes vacuuming a breeze.”
Duffy London is an idea-based company, Some of our ideas run along similar themes and concepts, while others are completely different. When we gain access to new production methods this inspires us to take new directions and helps us to evolve our designs. Duffy London produce furniture, lighting and interior products which are designed mostly by Chris Duffy but he draws on the designers that work for him and his friends in the same industry for their assistance and contributions to the designs.

“Pendant light „ili_ili“ This new comer consists of six various elements that can be turned into numerous forms by simply linking them. The elements are linked by clasps whose dimensions are adjusted to their function of linking. The elements differ in form and colour. That is how combining three nuances of green, yellow, blue and grey one gets monochromous or polychromous pendant lights.”
