Zaria Forman beautifully captures the earth’s changing landscapes in her nearly photorealistic large soft pastel drawings. Documenting climate change and extreme environments come natural to Forman for she grew up travelling with her family to remote locations.
French designer Matali Crasset continues her creative partnership with Italian company Campeggi to produce this “Concentré de Vie” Modular Sofa. The ground-level sofa consists of a hard prismatic frame filled with two L-shaped cushions, two square pillows, and a soft pad underneath them all. The detachment of the soft elements from the frame allow the user a number of possible configurations including a single bed, armrest, footstool or pouf.
In 1950, Rimowa presented the first-ever corrugated aluminum case, which quickly became the preferred case of the traveling elite, thanks to its lightweight, superior construction.
In 2010 the Cologne-based company presented its vintage series, recreating theis Style from yesteryear. Limited to a production run of 1,950 pieces, the series was offered in six different sizes—small suitcases to large travel pieces. Each numbered case is made of aircraft aluminum (duraluminium) and lined in a deep blue moiré interior, staying true to the aesthetics of the original versions. The handles are carved from a single block of aluminum, the result of a complicated, painstaking construction process, and the “retro” style locks display the case’s count within the 1,950 piece series stamped into the aluminum.
