La Vague is a free platform for creating useful yet artistic design objects founded by crowd of young ECAL graduates and students. Next month you can see it at Depot Basel and their Craft & Scenography project.

And they say: "La Vague is a platform for publishing and self-produced objects created by young designers.From idea to mail the package, they are the ones who take care of everything. Produced by artisans, local compagnies, or the designers themselves, the objects are distributed on special sales and via its website."

Dimitri Bähler, Anurag Etchepareborda, Anne Julmy, Linn Kandel, Charlotte Talbot, Jean Besson and Fanny Dora participate in the project with their minimalist and poetic objects including Tronc lamp by Charlotte Talbot, collection of Bags from Tyvek by Linn Kandel or domestic kinetic sculptures Round & Round by Jean Besson.

With its great visual style and photography, there is one of the most interesting projects from ECAL designers in the last years.

Cruising around wonderful design galleries in Paris is one of the best activities for us. Right now we have discovered some older pictures which we took one day when galleries were closed. The result is "Behind the Reflection" editorial presenting some extraordinary pieces of vintage furniture behind the windows of the closed galleries.

The Journal from Tacchini was the best print presentation which we have seen at Fiera during the last month Salone del Mobile in Milan.

Italian brand Tacchini has surprised us very much with its beautifully designed and art directed third issue of The Journal which features its new furniture collection. Designed by Barazzuol/Malisan, styled by Gabriella Zecca and photographed by Andrea Ferrari, The Journal is minimalist yet playful design catalogue highlights with the new re-edition of Bianca armchair by Italian modernist Franco Albini. The armchair was originally designed by Albini in 1939 for Villa Monzino on Lake Como.

Claesson Koivisto Rune, Gordon Guillaumier and Patrick Norguet with their new product are also included.

Congratulation for this beautiful publication.
