Kiko Milano selected designer Ross Lovegrove to create a packaging for a collection. With their ergonomic lines, the products are compact and easy to use, designed for what Lovegrove calls “nomadic portability”.
Ross Lovegrove was commissioned by Tŷ Nant to create the sensational new Ripple (PET) bottle, boasting a form which was ‘impossible to produce’. Tŷ Nant’s determination and a passion for innovation brought the ground-breaking bottle to life, creating a radical work of art truly evolving the traditional mould and rewriting the rules of bottle design.
Product designer Oscar Lhermitte with design studio Kudu are releasing the first topographically accurate lunar globe on Kickstarter.

Being inspired by a material that support’s of their daily activities, Maya and Denis discover the bubble wrap as main element for experimenting with in a new process that through a process of trial and error bore the definition and design of their new concept.
A commission from Plank to design a monoblock bar stool in plastic was the perfect opportunity for Konstantin Grcic to re-invent his vocabulary of shapes.
The swiss designer nicolas le moigne has collaborated with fiber cement company, eternit to create ‘trash cubes’ a project that uses raw, recycled material to produce new stools.
Inspired by a childhood spent on the beaches of Cornwall building castles, boats and tunnels in the sand, I decided to return to my favourite beach at Caerhays on the south coast of Cornwall to produce a stool using a primitive form of sand-casting. Molten pewter was poured into a sand mould sculpted directly into the beach by hand, and once cooled the sand was dug away to reveal a pewter stool.
‘Ett la benn’ discovered and presented the characteristics of natural cellulose within the ‘kami’ project. This years project ‘kami spin’ indeed uses the same biodegradable material but transmits the process into an industrialised rotation moulding and new applications of the objects.
The FACETURE series consists of handmade faceted vessels, light-shades and table. Each object is produced individually by casting a water-based resin into a simple handmade mould. The mould is then manually manipulated to create the each object’s form before each casting, making every piece utterly unique.
A pivot is built in the centre of the gallery and wet plaster is poured on floor. When the plaster is about to cure, a large wooden running mould with a sharp zinc profile is pushed through the paste-like material.
