I’ll preface this post by saying that this was one of my Top 5 favourite products from Milan Design Week. Yep, 100% – these are that good.

For me, this is an example of design authenticity at it’s best.

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.

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.
I can’t say I ever thought we’d be blogging about a shoe stool here on Yellowtrace, if ya know what I’m sayin’. But when a piece of furniture is this beautiful, we are left with no choice. This gorgeous stool was created by Japanese designer Koichi Futatsumata for a fashion brand FUJITO as a limited edition item for the brand’s 10th anniversary. The stool was re-released by Opinion Ciatti and it was exhibited this year at Salone Internazionale del Mobile.
