Caux Collective Redirects: Innventia

When Swedish research company Innventia recently teamed up with designers Anna Glansén and Hanna Billqvist from design agency Tomorrow Machine they sought to develop a sustainable package customized for freeze-dried food. In doing so they may well have hit the jackpot, combining the knowledge of scientists and the creativity of designers, paving the way for the future of sustainable packaging.

Design that is adaptable, changeable and beautiful is always something that catches my eye. Combined with crafting skill Well Well Designers have developed Pop-Up, a corner lamp delivered in an envelope.

The Pop-up corner light is delivered in an envelope with the electric cord. The lamp is constructed from a sheet of tinted cardboard.The sheet is cut and incised, in such a way to produce a square, triangular or circular module when folded at a 90° angle. Intended for the corner of a room, the lamp creates a luminous shape, interacting with the architecture. It cleverly takes advantage of a space often unexploited in design.

GVAL is a product that brings surprising and playful use to an object as ordinary as everyday’s chair.

In doing so, it  pays homage to the most archetypical of all production materials, wood, in its most natural form: a tree. The shape of the chair and the texture of alternating sheets of plywood is inspired by pattern of tree rings, which in a way represent tree’s memory: each ring usually marks the  of one year in the life of the tree.

+ First prize of the category Making Chairs of the interational competition Art On Chairs, awarded by the Paredes Center of Furniture Design.

Product developed with Gustavo Reboredo, Louis Sicard & Nenad Katic.

henrique oliveira | baitogogo at palais de tokyo, paris

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.
