We received exclusive photo report from North Bohemian glasswork company Lasvit showing production of the unique glass collection designed by famous Japanese designers Nendo.

Nendo has not collaborated with Czech company Lasvit for the first time. After last year success with Growing Vases chandelier produced by Lasvit, designer Oki Sato from Nendo was so fascinated by the traditional Czech glasswork that he has continued collaboration with Lasvit with two glass collection produced for Paris-based Carpenters Workshop gallery.

Innerblow and Overflow represents two different glass collections. Each of them uses glass in a different way with different production methods and creative concepts. But in both cases, Nendo has used glass and its production techniques as a live process based on the primary qualities of the material. The outcome are surprisingly light, subtle and airy pieces.

Here you can see Lasvit craftsmen during the production of Innerblow collection which includes tables made out of huge glass volumes blown into the metal boxes. Tomorrow you can see our report from the Paris exhibition which we have visited last month.

Nigel Cabourn is one of the greatest masters of the work wear.

We love his excellent vintage inspired clothing which he produced since 1971 in the North of England. This time we present here one of his older piece from 2010 collection. Fisherman jacket was created in collaboration with Harris Tweed and all the perfect details represent ultimate quality of Cabourn`s craftsmanship.

Angelo Mangiarotti (born 1921) is a heavyweight in the history of Italian modernist design and architecture. This residential building on Via Quadronno in Milan he built with Bruno Morassutti.

Designed and built in 1960, the building represents typical house typology quite often found in Milan and other Italian cities. Luxury condominium with comfort apartments was a classic theme for Italian modernist architects. Each of them like studio BBPR, Ignazio Gardella, Gio Ponti, Marco Zanuso, Luigi Caccia Dominioni and many others designed several luxury condominium residences around Milan. In their significant style influnced by minimalism as well as brutalism, Mangiarotti with Morassutti built several too.

This one is one the most exceptional examples how architects could connect historical environment of the city of Milan with totally modern architecture. Brutalist bloc, today covered in greenery, creates its own intimate complex. The entrance is very interesting there. Constructivist sculpture like entrance gate leads us to slope walkway into the reception. Combination of materials creates beautiful compositions of everything from greenery to benches. At the reception you can still see the original marble table by Mangiarotti.

Luxury living by Mangiarotti we have visited last year.

French 1930s modernist René Herbst (1891-1982) is famous for his chairs design mainly. But we have found his amazing fashion figurines and decoration now.

Both objects, woman figurine and presentation object for man fashion, come from 1930s and were designed and executed for Siegel. In both cases we can see ultimate modernist look as we know it from figurines by Oskar Schlemmer or from decorations of Metropolis movie. There are unique examples of modernist design in very rare typology.


Some times ago we have showed you model of the famous airplane Spirit of St. Louis by Lego. This time we have discovered another unique Lego gem.

In the 1950s and 1960s Lego collaborated with Volkswagen very much. So this model of Volkswagen Type 2 Camper Van was a common product in the line of Lego.








L'ATELIER d'exercises is very interesting new French brand for us. We have visited its stand at Maison et Objet in Paris last Month.

The brand produces very unusual products ranging from the wooden box for storage of found natural objects to the table mobile by Francois Azambourg or the special calendar system by Sebastian Bergne.

Its stand at the Paris fair was very friendly full of these on the first sight nonfunctional things but very playful and poetic.
