The GoFish is a new rocking chair from Italian designer Antonella Di Luca. It is completely made of honeycomb cardboard, light and durable. The saddle is designed to make more comfortable and safe the seat. The fin on the back serves both as a support and protection, handles made of natural beechwood comply with the soul of the product, giving it a contemporary look, elegant and playful.

aMDL- architetto Michele De Lucchi S.r.l. has designed a fews Camper stores around the globe for Camper. These stores can be found at Milano, Amsterdam, Marseille, Singapore, St Petersburg and Tokyo.
The image of the Camper store pays homage to and is reflected in the free and easy, lively spirit of the style, motifs and colours invented by the Memphis designers in the 1980s. Conceptually, the display stand alludes to the wall of shoe boxes. It is deformed however in the Memphis graphic style, and transformed into a three-dimensional décor with an optical effect. The tilted shelves in fact distort the wall’s perspective, and the large number of individual shelves available enables a profusion of shoes to be displayed simultaneously. At the centre of the space, a piece of furniture with absurd and bizarre shapes is reminiscent of the original laminates designed in the Memphis years. By contrast, the floor is in untreated wood.
Skog is well-designed kids’ furniture made 100% in South African. At first sight, the furniture look coming from Nordish design. The word “Skog” means forest in Norwegian and the Scandinavian influences are clear in the natural wood, minimalism and efficient approach to design that Skog uses in its children’s furniture.
The furniture which includes a group table, play table, picnic bench and homework desk – offers an alternative to the plastic furniture that has become commonplace for children. The furniture is designed to be easy for children to use and parents to maintain. The chairs and benches are designed to be ergonomically correct, assisting your child’s posture as they sit and play.
The furniture is manufactured from sustainably harvested European Birch plywood. No paint or varnish is used. All Skog's furniture is sealed with Rubio Monocoat oil, which is 100% Plant Based sealer. The coating is important because it makes the children’s seating system safe, easy to clean and highly water and heat resistant. The furniture is also suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
What makes Skog extra special is that it comes flat packed and assembles without the use of screws and glue.
Following an initial rollout last summer in the America, Argentina and the UK,Coca-Cola Life is now set to be launched in New Zealand and Australia in April this year. A can of Coca-Cola Life boasts 35 per cent less sugar thanks to the introduction of the natural sweetener Stevia - meaning it only contains 290 calories compared to the classic can's 450 calories.
'Coke Life is absolutely about not only keeping pace with consumer needs and demands but hopefully trying to out-pace them,' Coca-Cola Group Marketing Manager Dianne Everett said. The gleaming green can almost looks like an impersonator next to the traditional colours of the red, white, black and silver branding across the three others kinds of Coke. Coca-Cola Group Marketing Manager Dianne Everett said the colour was chosen to stand out above its carbonated competitors.
'It's really about making sure we stand out on shelf with something that’s vibrant so that we are clearly positioning ourself as yet another vibrant addition to the Coke family - and it also compliments the rest of the family,' she said.
The launch of Coca-Cola Life is the latest in a series of initiatives from Coke to promote well-being and address obesity by providing consumers with beverages for every lifestyle and occasion and encouraging people to move more. Stevia leaf extract is naturally sourced from the stevia plant. Sweeteners made from stevia are calorie-free and up to 200 times sweeter than table sugar.
Coca-Cola Life will be available in a variety of fully recyclable packaging featuring striking green branding. The September launch will be supported by a comprehensive marketing campaign, including digital, outdoor and print advertising.
