06 05 04 03

The following masterpiece was created by Portuguese carpenter Carlos Alberto. Called “Vespa Daniela” it’s completely hand-crafted scooter, complete with Napolitan-striped paneling and spinning roulette wheels. It definitely takes a lot of time to complete such a work of art. A forgotten Vespa in Carlos Alberto’s garage was the stimulation to create this masterpiece. He dismantled the pieces of the old scooter and kept the engine, the suspensions and the wheels. The bike was designed for his daughter Daniela and features a functional 50cc motor.

“Squishy” Chairs by Annie Evelyn


general 02 03 06

Annie Evelyn is a furniture designer who has been developing her unusual furniture upholstery techniques since she was a student. This collection of chairs, named “Squishy”, has been designed for Brooklyn-based company New Colony Furniture. Other Evelyn’s works in her portfolio display a sense of humor about seating, with an “impolite chair” boasting a built-in whoopee cushion, and a piece entitled “Sit on My Finger” that’s a tiny chair you wear as a ring. Evelyn reclaims wooden chair frames, lines the seats and backs with foam, and painstakingly covers these surfaces with small pieces of hard materials that give way when pressure is applied. With this technique, she’s able to make cracked cement, tiles and faceted pieces of wood into exceptionally comfortable seating surfaces. Instead of poking you, those sticks will cradle the curves of your body.

general 01 02 03 04 06

Presented during the 2013 Salone del Mobile, the Sandwichbike wooden bicycle by Dutch designer Basten Leijh will start production. Made of two wooden panels, this bicycle was inspired by the concept of flat packing and home assembly. To enable to make it a build-it-yourself product, Basten Leijh rethought most aspects of the classic velocipede. Instead of a welded frame, the vehicle is engineered as a “sandwich” of two weather coated frames of layered plywood. Bonded together by “smart cylinders”, the frames and components become a durable piece of technology.

Creative Babele Lamp


02 06 03

A lamp Babele created by Manifattura Italiana Design, in the shape of a classic table lamp silhouette, is comprised of wooden sections made to be disassembled and reassembled. Starting from a classic abat-jour (lampshade) silhouette and playing with it: disassembling it in plain sections, shuffling and putting them back in order, creating and defining light gaps. It’s an ever changing object with an innate anchitectural nature. A simple figure, an idea, a lamp that illuminates and inspires creativity.
