Théorie de l’évolution

Milan Who said you can’t play with designer furniture? The Animaze range by DesignLibero encourages children to have fun with different modules that interlock like puzzles and whose outer wooden casing encloses a strange animal in foam rubber that can be a rocking horse, table or cuddly toy.

Tour de magie

La côte-aux-fées Possession is a jewelry line designed for daydreams: its signature piece is a diamond-studded ring revolving around a sphere. In a first, Piaget is adorning its pendants and bracelets with the colors of five ornamental gems. Make a wish and pink gold whirls around a planet in onyx black, malachite green, carnelian red, turquoise blue or lapis lazuli.

Dans la peau

Japon / Paris For five generations, Japanese firm Epoi has been designing and manufacturing ultra-smooth leather bags. It demonstrates its craft in “artisanal dialogues.” Invited to take part, Parisien Adieu created the Rock Study Bag, incorporating details from its shoes and gusset bags, a nod to the fan and the accordion. An organic project.

Caractère de chien

Italie Flashback: in 1970, to alleviate his dog’s solitude, Italian designer Fernando Cassetta created this lamp to keep it company. It was a hit. This year, he has revived it thanks to 3-D printing in a design that is true to the original: the head nods, altering the intensity of the light from the strip of LEDs. All it lacks is the ability to bark.

Reliefs animés

Amsterdam Robert van Embricqs dislikes predictable objects. To reinvent the chair, this young Dutch designer began with a flat surface, then cut it, folded it and sliced it into strips until the astonishing curves of a seat rose up from the floor. And then, with a folding action, it returns to the state of a plank as if going back to sleep.

Histoire de fanfaronner
