Geniol Feuerstelle-Smm..you could fall in love with this new “FIREPLACE”

Geniol’s “FIREPLACE” has been shown at Tendence and received a hell of attention.

Marshmallows are still better toasted over a campfire, but otherwise the fireplace brings all the fascination of an open fire to your home. No chimney or extractor required! The fireplace is fuelled with standard fuel paste for indoor use.

Centerpiece of this glass object is a stainless steel construction, which is attached to the sides of the glass cylinder with screws but gives the impression of floating in the air. It contains the furnace chamber, the cover of which has a log-fire pattern. This irregular pattern gives the rising flames an interesting shape and catches the eye even when the hearth is not in use.

Designer Wolf Udo Wagner focused on pure asthetics of real fire. Enjoy chilling moments in front of it.

Alternative to the fireplace…

You favor wine instead of a sixpack cold beer for tonight’s dinner? Or you simply want to stack your wines for cooking in a space saving way?

I love to present my selection of 6 “premier cru” for next weekend’s dinner this way…

Wine Harry Allen’s whimisical and practical 2005 release in the Reality Series is a polyster resin cast of a joined wine bottles which have been sliced in half. The resulting object forms the base for creating or presenting stacked wine bottles.

Available in matte black or gypsum white.?

Ingo Maurer’s “Porca China” – on sale for a good cause until Oct. 30th

Maurer Porca China
Ingo Maurer - well known for having designed some of the most spectacular lamps I know - auctions off his own and unique “Porca China” for a good cause. He chose Médecins Sans Frontières to receive his donation.

During the show at Spazio Krizia in Milan Maurer received quite a lot of applause and some high offers for this design. But he was sure he wanted to keep the hanging lamp himself, and declined them all. Terrible impressions of hunger and suffering in our world, as in Niger and Darfur in these months, has led him to offer his Porca China for sale with the proceeds donated as a whole.
Maurer Porca China
“Porca China” is a variation of the suspension lamp Porca Miseria!. Broken white porcelain and cutlery are fixed around the light sources like in a snap-shot of an explosion. Each piece is unique and differs in its expression and size. The production is limited and very time-consuming. The first piece of the series was shown in Milan in 1994 under the name „Zabriskie Point or Think Positive“. It is now in the house of Alma und Ron Arad.

For Porca China Ingo Maurer added pieces of porcelain figures which he had acquired on a journey to China. Instead of Western cutlery he attached chop-sticks between the shards. It was presented only once to the public in April 2005 as a part of the Ingo Maurer show at Spazio Krizia during the Euroluce, Milan.

Ugly radiators doomed

To the best of my belief, the days of lousy radiator design are numbered - that’s another insight from our days in Paris!!! At least if you can afford some of the following…

Radiator 5-1

For example the Italian manufacturer Ad Hoc (damned… what a website in comparison to their products???), DeltaCalor and UK-based Eskimo represent a real revolution in domestic heating, thanks to the idea of formal and technological distinction of the radiant element. Their exclusive design gives heating appliances an importance the hidden position of the traditional element never had.

Radiator 6-1DeltaCalor’s “System I” is a sculpture per se and an interesting decoration for every room of your home.

Since its debut in September 2004, GAIA & GINO has well established to create a new Turkish design brand. The first of this collection was the “Liquid Glass” glassware by Defne Koz, a Turkish designer living in Milan.

Internationally acclaimed designer Karim Rashid in New York designed the best known collections. Karim reinterprets the dining experience by creating a series of unique innovative products:

Morphescape“MORPHESCAPE” the non-stop continuation of a single undulating surface is divided into every need for the table enabling one to have an entire table connected by each function as a modular scape. The inspiration is the cityscape of Istanbul from Minarets and mosques to the modern city and the Bosphorus.

Tendence in Frankfurt started yesterday and Maison & Objet in Paris will follow next weekend…That’s the high season for all the table and giftware enthusiasts out there in the world.

Menu’s inspiration and design culture are rooted in the tradition of Scandinavian design, and they are uncompromising in the standard of quality expecting of their products. My favorites are their vases…
