Lighting designed by Jeremy Cole
Jeremy launched his design career with the Aloe range, which is inspired by the Agave plant, a tropical cactus with distinctive fleshy-leaved flowers that lend themselves perfectly to sculptural lighting. There are three Aloe designs – the Bud, which represents the birth of the plant, Blossom which is the mid-life and the full beauty of the flower and the Shoot which is the withering death. Aloe is made from individually handmade porcelain leaves that are geometrically arranged around the light source to act as a diffuser, producing a calming, glowing light.

Concrete washbasin shaped as a fossil from HighTech. “Ammonites are an extinct species of cephalopods which lived in the sea about 400 million years ago. Their shells are found all over the world and they are very much sought-after by fossil-hunters, their collector’s value depending on size and the state of preservation.

The association of water and fossil design is a clear allusion to the prehistoric inspiration for the Ammonite washbasin.” (via Trendir)
‘While most designers are busying adding more and more elements into their artworks, Japan-based Yuki Matsueda has, however, managed to let some elements escape from his art pieces. The result seems quite amazing… A vivid 3D image is successfully created and all the elements are believed to be more shocking than those stay still on paper.’

“Soso is a brand of high quality salts, which come from a salt mine located in a natural reserve in the south of Spain. The client was looking for a distinguishing container that could be used both to store salts and as a salt cellar. An egg is the perfect container, as its own shell is the packaging, so it was decided that an egg shape would be reproduced. The project and the brand were named Soso, which means ‘lacking salt’ or ‘short of salt’ in Spanish.”
Dutch designer Lex Pott has created a table called â€œ Stone and Industry “. From Lex Pott: As Belgian bluestone is found deep under the ground, natural rugged forms are typically created during its extraction. Industry then processes this into rectangular blocks or sheet material. Lex Pott designed a table that combines industry and nature. It can clearly be seen in the contours how the natural rock formations are combined with industrial geometry.
