INFINITI Q Inspiration Concept.


Infiniti is always surprising us with features we can’t even see! And let me tell you this, the Infiniti Q Inspiration is doing exactly that – hiding the world’s first ever production ready four-cylinder variable compression ratio engine under the hood of what can easily be seen as a futuristic concept. It may look like a futuristic concept, and it should because they have just entered the future with the Q Inspiration.

Coming complete with an AI/semi-autonomous feature, the Infiniti Q Inspiration has a ProPilot assistant who helps with menial tasks like sitting in traffic or parking. So it’s super smart and super-efficient, it’s also super attractive. The Q Inspiration is inspirational – the rear of this vehicle just oozes a type of class rarely seen with futuristic cars, it’s keeping the mix of curvaceous and organic shape while the lights bring a more futuristic dynamic to tie it all together. This is a gorgeous car, and one can only hope it gets the recognition it most certainly deserves.

Octopus Shaped Cirrata Lamp


general

Unusually-shaped sea creature Cirrata, a suborder of octopuses, was a source of inspiration for designer Markus Johansson. His glowing, delicately formed lamp is meant to light up the “darkness of the ocean.” The tentacle-like base creates the illusion that the fixture is floating across the surface it sits on, or the ocean floor where the idea was born. Who would have thought this lamp was made from Corian, that solid surface material most often used for kitchen and bathroom countertops.

Don Café House by Innarch


09

Innarch have designed the Don Café House in Pristina, Kosovo. The idea / inspiration for the design derives from sack filled with coffee grains. The walls of the bar are organically shaped and colored like coffee sack made up of “Plywood” type of wood, whereby the pillars in between are coated with textile coffee sacks. Tables and hanging chandeliers represent the coffee grains lined up asymmetrically in order to generate the impression of being inside a coffee sack. The separating wall has a double function; decorative and functional. Its organic shape consists the most dominant part of the premise enabling a unique feeling of sitting unlike any other one comes across in everyday life. Each of the plywood element was designed individually.

Check out this Nike store display by the Finland-born, Amsterdam-based illustrator Kustaa Saksi before, but this time, it is his fantastical paper display at the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair. The intricate and delicate display from 1120 stacks of A4-size paper (total of 700,000 sheets of paper) suspended from 44,000 points in the ceiling. Ceiling frescoes, church domes, altars – these were all part of the inspiration for Saksi and Wingårdh who concluded that paper is still them most commonly used means of communication and therefore the perfect material for the display.

L’Or de Jean Martell “Dome” by Eric Gizard


M

The house of Martell has collaborated with French interior architect and designer Eric Gizard to create the “Dôme” gift box for L’Or de Jean Martell.  I worked by drawing inspiration from cabinets of curiosities where collectors would store precious, almost magical objects in Renaissance Europe,” Eric Gizard said. “I was also inspired by silver cloches from great restaurants that excite curiosity and showcase the revelation of an exceptional dish.” The Dome’s base contains a hidden book that emerges with a single push. A mirror placed behind the bottle reflects and enhances the colour of this intense cognac. L’Or de Jean Martell is a blend of very old Grande Champagne and Borderies eaux-de-vie, creating a unique blend of elegance, power and roundness. This blend consists over 400 rare eaux-de-vie, some more than a century old, and they come in a precious crystal decanter. The cognac is a testimony to Jean Martell, whose founding principles are based on the pursuit of perfection. It has notes of fruited candy, sweet spices and gingerbread.
