Our friend and collaborator, designer Tomáš Král, actually based in Lausanne, sent us some photos from the prototyping process of his new desk Homework which he has designed for Super-ette edition.

Launched at Maison et Objet in Paris last week, the desk has a simple wooden form with a metal storage around three sides of a desk. Perfect for organizing the things, magazines, books and other stuff. Look at some photos by Tomáš from the developing of his design from the miniature model to final prototype and visualizations.

During our stay at Fulvio Ferrari's house in Liguria, we have discovered this amazing book on ski champion Leo Gasperl, one of the best friends of Carlo Mollino. Written by Fulvio himself.

Leo (1912 - 1997) was a record holder Austrian skier who stayed in Italy during the late 1930s as a trainer of Italian National skiing team. There, he met Carlo Mollino with whom he devoted his winter activities to the inventing of precise new style of skiing. He wrote the book Discesismo on skiing in 1939, filmed the movies about and developed, with his wife, fashion designer Luciana, fashion of the skiing.

Leo Gasperl is one of the most stylish persons in the history for us. In this book, you can see great pictures of him posing for the fashion shoots, as well as during the training when he developed special combinations and riding styles. Also he was interested in aerodynamic and its aplication for skiing. He developed special clothes for better jumping and downhill skiing as Thirring cloak as you can see in the book as well. He was hedonist of the slope and was a friend of celebrities such as Dawn Adams, Gina Lollobrigida and others.

Thanks Fulvio Ferrari for the possibility of shooting the book!

Designed by John Knudsen Northrop and Gerard Vultee, this Lockheed Vega is one of the most successful long-altitude airplanes.

Introduced in 1928, Vega was a favorite airplane of a such expedition pilots as Amelia Earhart who flew as a first woman over Atlantic ocean with it or Wiley Post who flew around the world twice with Vega. Winnie Mae, named after his child, was his special airplane acquired by him for teh first around the world flight.

In 1931, he and his navigator Harold Gatty successfuly completed flight from New York to New York in amazing time of 8 days, 15 hours and 51 minutes. With stops at Harbour Grace, Flintshire, Hanover twice, Berlin, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Blagoveshchensk, Khabarovsk, Nome, Fairbanks, Edmonton, and Cleveland they traveled 24,903 km. In 1933, he repeated his flight around the world, this time using the auto-pilot and compass in place of his navigator and becoming the first to accomplish the feat alone.

The characteristic blue and white design of Winnie Mae meets very robust, yet aerodynamic and aggressive shape of Lockheed Vega, which presents one of the most beautiful airplanes of all time for us.
















Our friend and close collaborator, designer Klára Šumová and her partner graphic designer Dirk Wright, discovered hidden garden and house of the famous Canadian modernist architect Arthur Erickson (1924 – 2009) in Vancouver for us.


Arthur Erickson lived everywhere, mostly hotel rooms, while travelling the world lecturing, building and seeking inspiration in the places he visited. As admirers of his work, we wanted to learn about his own house.

Erikson was Canadian, and at the end of his travels, Vancouver was home. It was there that he resided in two places; his 80 person office and his little house. On the parcel of land purchased, two existing garages were joined together. He didn't need much. A kitchen, a study and two large windows—one to the sky and the other to his garden. The garden was a project realised with his students and it was there that he applied spacial experiments with the ground, water and plant species. The area is beautifully sectioned, as you walk the permitter, the garden begins to feel like large piece of land.

The residence is surrounded by a cedar fence. There is little to be seen from the street, no house, no structures, only tree tops. A perfect place for parties, which close friends can confirm happened often. He was a gracious host; on the occasion of the Swan Lake premier, two swans were specially invited to the after-party for an evening in the pond. Guests were entertained on the grounds and on the island—his "moon-viewing platform."

The house is currently rented by a family friend, the garden is opened as a museum by appointment.

We love colorful and bright neo-postmodernist work of Stockholm-based Note Studio. Their last project reminds us our favorite French modernist Mathieu Matégot (1910 - 2001).

The furniture, which Note has designed for Camper store in Malmö, Sweden, features perforated metal sheets used in the sublte constractions of the tables and shelves for the shoes display.

The same material highlights in the work of French modernist Mathieu Matégot very much. His collectible pieces from the 1950s in which we are interested for a long time, present amazing modernist sculptures as Note did for Camper store in their characteristic contemporary style. The styles return always.
