Widely celebrated as one of the design industry's most influential players, Kelly Wearstler is the founder of KWID design and the author of Modern Glamour (Harper-Collins). Most recently she appeared as a judge on Bravo's hit show "Top Design", wowing viewers with both her personal style and design commentary.
Laura Bezant takes cult references such as Manga illustration, graffiti and Peter Greenaway's film 'The Pillow Book' and transposes them into covetable jewelry. She juxtaposes words laser cut from leather with hand pierced silver butterflies to create designs that are edgy yet feminine.

Classical elements are re-interpreted in terms of their nature and use within a contemporary context in this workspace in Shanghai.
Designed by: MoHen Design International
Two free-standing boxes enclose the pantry, copy room and bathroom right beside the reception desk. The boxes are designed to provide a complimentary visual effect while utilizing the space to its maximum potential.
The user of the space is seen as the focus of the design and each element introduced in the space is to serve him.

Baroque sensibilities meet modern technology to create a chandelier range that is not only visually appealing, but compact and easy to assemble as well.
Inspired by classic chandeliers, these designs are realized in modern materials using advanced technology.
They are designed so as to enable an ease of assembly of the different parts through a simple procedure of interlocking.

Ett annorlunda café-koncept har nyligen tagits fram av Koncept, för ett café som är integrerat i HM-butiken på Sergels torg. Tanken bakom Mode Cafés design är att både identitet och funktioner är placerade i inredningsenheterna, ett "möblerat" koncept.
Detta gäller även belysningen som är en riktig specialare: stora flak med bakbelysta illustrationer som är pendlade från taket.
Lösningen bygger på Flux diffuserande ljusfilm Translucent, screentryckt och sedan spänd över stora ljuslådor, 1,80 x 2 meter. I lådorna sitter dimbara T5-rör och upptill på kanterna sitter skenor med nedåtriktade spotlights för belysning av bord och andra detaljer i inredningen.
Motiven på ljuslådorna anspelar på mode och på Skandinavien.
Här är en uppsättning som har de fyra årstiderna som tema.
Cafét invigs efter sommaren och ligger i HM-butiken på Sergels torg 16.

Today I visited a temporary exhibition of the Japanese architecture duo, SANAA at The Museum of Architecture in Stockholm. SANAA represents a new generation of architects looking for new methods for site-specific architecture by questioning established concepts such as transparency and open plans. They frequently use large glazed openings that dissolve the boundaries between interior and exterior.
The exhibition presents work from the beginning of their career until now. It consists of study models, three-dimensional objects, photographs, and video films that are found in-between art and architecture.
They are absolutly one of favourites among the young architects. If you are in Stockholm you have to have a look. Exhibition period until 19 August 2007
