    25th June

    Oh lordy! The extreme levels of awesome are making me hot under the collar. Someone bring me a glass of water. Please.

    Pierre Charpin’s Installation at Apartment N°50 by Le Corbusier // Marseille, France.

    11th June

    Within the iconic Cité radieuse in Marseilles designed by Le Corbusier, Apartment N°50 was scrupulously protected in its original 1952 state, classified as a “Historic Monument” in 1995. It opens regularly to the public during the summer months to exhibit the work of a few of the most talented contemporary international designers within this outstanding space. A short series of scenographic installations has been realised over the years; Jasper Morrison (2008), Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec (2010) Konstantin Grcic (2012), and now for its fourth session, the French designer Pierre Charpin.



    Damage Playground Store in Rotterdam.

    4th June

    After running a successful online store for a year, brothers Alexandre and Anibal Furtado opened this monster cool menswear store called Damage Playground in Rotterdam. A combination of lifestyle and art, it’s difficult to tell where the product placement ends and the art begins, when in fact there is no clear boundary. The minimalist design has a gallery feel, with canvasses, projections and prints meshing perfectly with the neo-mannequins.

    16th May

    The first – and smokin’ hot – installation and collaboration between Vitra + Artek recently opened at VitraHaus loft in Weil am Rhein. Officially joining forces in 2013 after Vitra acquired Artek, the two furniture companies enlisted the help of Ilse Crawford of Studio Ilse who created a glorious space to introduce the union of the two brands. Rather than simply display their products alongside each other, the shared brand is introduced in the form of a story: an imaginary home of a fictitious Finnish-German couple, Harri and Astrid.
