Time to time we have to publish something new from our very favorite Paris-based show-maker Pierre Hardy. This time we are surprised from these sculptural wedges he has designed for his Summer 2013 collection.

We have selected four of the most sculptural lamps by French modernist designer and decorator Mathieu Mategot (1910 - 2001).

Working mainly with perforated metal sheets, his lamps are true works of art. Geometric and organic forms create exceptional abstract compositions in which the light sources are hidden inside the pure sculptures. His early work such as Bagdad lamp or Java lamp are followed by Laiton lamp from later period of the 1960s, right before Mategot retired as a furniture designer. In that period he works with brass mainly.

We are very surprised from the discovery of this series of lamps designed by sculptor Bernard Schottlander and now re-edited by Lampe Gras.

Called Mantis, the series was designed by English sculptor Bernard Schottlander (1924 - 1999) in 1951. He was very much influenced by artists like Alexander Calder and other prominent sculptors of the new abstract and kinetic movement of the era. Great metal worker and craftsman created "Serge Mouile style" lamps with refined adjustable system.

Elegant series of floor, wall and table lamp is now re-edited by French company Lampe Gras. Check their nice brochure on new re-edited products above.

Dutch designer Aldo Bakker has designed Fume chair for Particles gallery and presented it at Salone del Mobile earlier this month.

His organic style went further in this seating project and he has designed organic-formed chair made out of smoked oak wooden thin sheets connected each other to form interior object very similar to 1950s organic modern by the like of Isamu Noguchi or André Bloc, among others. Some similarities of form we present here above.

Earlier this month we have visited charming exhibition Analog Blast organized by Domus magazine during Salone del Mobile in Milan.

The exhibition inside amazing historical palace of Casa degli Atellani on Corso Magenta has presented exceptional excursion into the history of modern design in the last 20 years through the lens of Ramak Fazel, photographer and long-time collaborator of the magazine.

More than two hundred Photos of Fazel were presented in a very clever, natural and free installation inside several rooms of Casa degli Atellani. Design luminaries from the last 20 years at work, as well as in personal life were captured by Ramak Fazel for pages of Domus.

We liked the concept of the installation, as well as system of the captions describing the photos, which were placed on very unexpected places around the house as photos did.

There are some pictures of the exhibition we took. For sure, the best show in Milan we saw this year.
