Monjo Coffee by by Rice Creative

Rice Creative was asked to develop a concept, brand, and visual identity for a new coffee franchise to compete in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where the city has a unique coffee culture from international renowned brand to local coffee shop.

Rice Creative found an opportunity to create a coffee shop which offered a little more and felt like one of a kind, while being relatively simple to replicate. This coffee shop should offer quick convenience to the busy citizens of the metropolis. It should also offer a place to relax and take a break or work away for hours.

The discovery was the 'Monjo Station' concept, the inspiration being Rice Creative favorite classic Metro stations from around the world. The Paris metro, London underground, NYC Subway, Tokyo, and Hong Kong lines, all inspired both the concept and the aesthetic of the new franchise. Rice Creative imagined the 'Perfect metro station', complete with a perfect newsstand, a sandwich shop & of course a spot to grab a well made cup of coffee. The 'metro aesthetic' come through clearly in the use of tile inside and out. There is a waiting bench, which runs all the way around the facade of the shop, perfect for people watching. Loyalty cards and stationary are ticket inspired, while the overhead menu references a station with clear, easy to read way finding. Taking cues from metro way finding, Rice Creative developed icons for nearly everything in the location, from coffee cups, to sandwiches, to coffee trees and custom lighting.

Meteor Wall lamp by Outofstock

Those of us who fancy another worldly light experience should look towards the Meteor. Inspired by extra-terrestrial minerals, this bold and artful lighting installation will transform your wall, as a singular piece or as a combination in different sizes.

Meteor Wall lamp is designed by Outofstock for Bolia.


The multi-cultural design collective was born out of a fortuitous meeting in Stockholm, hence the name Outofstock. Wendy Chua, Gabriel Tan, Gustavo Maggio and Sebastian Alberdi met at Electrolux Design Lab 2005. They decided to collaborate in 2006 and have since been working together across three cities and continents, sharing values of simplicity and poetry, sustainability and craftsmanship.

Based in Singapore, Barcelona and Buenos Aires, Outofstock designs products, furniture, lighting and spaces for international clients such as Ligne Roset, Bolia, Environment, Industry+, Biobu by Ekobo and the Sori Yanagi Foundation.

Outofstock has received several accolades for their work, including the Maison & Objet Rising Asian Talents Award 2015, Concurso de Diseño Interior Buenos Aires 2013, the President´s Design Award 2010, and the Elle Decoration Spain´s Young Talent of the Year 2009.

Heartbeat: 100,000 Illuminated Balloons Suspended in Covent Garden by Charles Pétillion

French artist Charles Pétillon presents his first public art installation – and his first ever live work outside of France – in Covent Garden as 100,000 giant white balloons fill the grand interior of the 19th Century Market Building.

Weaving its way through the South Hall of the Grade II listed Market Building, Heartbeat stretches 54 metres in length and 12 metres in width, and incorporates gentle pulsating white light to symbolise the beating of a heart and reflect the history, energy and dynamism of the district.

Charles Pétillon said: “The balloon invasions I create are metaphors. Their goal is to change the way in which we see the things we live alongside each day without really noticing them. With Heartbeat I wanted to represent the Market Building as the beating heart of this area – connecting its past with the present day to allow visitors to re-examine its role at the heart of London’s life.

“Each balloon has its own dimensions and yet is part of a giant but fragile composition that creates a floating cloud above the energy of the market below. This fragility is represented by contrasting materials and also the whiteness of the balloons that move and pulse appearing as alive and vibrant as the area itself.”



AIAIAI Flagship Store

AIAIAI first retail-space called Studio A. In more flamboyant terms it could be deemed a flagship store, although it will probably be the smallest flagship store the world has ever seen...

Danish design studio Borg Brückner designed the whole of the 4 sq. meters flexible interior space to be packed floor to ceiling with records, gadgets and other products sold in the shop. the overall idea was to make a flexible interior that could change or evolve according to the needs of the brand and the modular product – and work within the small space.

The store will be an extension of the AIAIAI main office and face the bustling Studiestraede in Copenhagen’s busy inner city. So if you’re in Copenhagen and in the market for a new pair of headphones, or just want to see what the creative collective and their affiliates are up to, Studio A should be well worth a visit.

GO-  Made to Measure 3D-printed Wheelchair

LayerLAB is the studio’s new research division, founded in 2016 to investigate new applications for emerging technologies and materials with the potential to meaningfully improve quality of life.

LayerLAB’s inaugural project is GO, a made-to-measure 3D-printed consumer wheelchair that has been designed to fit the individual needs of a wide range of disabilities and lifestyles. The custom form of the seat and foot-bay is driven by 3D digital data derived from mapping each user’s biometric information. The resulting wheelchair accurately fits the individual’s body shape, weight and disability to reduce injury and increase comfort, flexibility, and support. The accompanying GO app allows users to participate in the design process by specifying optional elements, patterns and colourways, and to place orders.

GO is the result of an intensive, two-year research period during which the studio interviewed dozens of wheelchair users and medical professionals to establish how to remove the stigma associated with wheelchairs as medical devices and create a more human-centered vehicle.

“We’re really excited to be working with Layer and Benjamin Hubert to bring the GO wheelchair to life. It’s an excellent example of the use of 3D printing to offer mass customisation and personalisation of products. An integral part of the Materialise ethos is to develop meaningful applications of 3D printing that have a positive impact on individuals’ lives, and the GO wheelchair is one of those projects with great potential.”

Philip Hudson, managing director, Materialise
