Duffy London

Duffy London was founded by Christopher Duffy, a design graduate from the University of Brighton in 2002. Started his humble beginning creating products in his kitchen, Duffy London now perform their furniture-making wizardry in a spacious studio in east London.

Duffy London's designs are ideas-based, combining art and function and playing with the concepts of gravity, geometry and illusion. The innovative and quirky designs spring from the mind of Chris, however, he also draws on his talented designers and manufacturers to turn these concepts into quality products.

Boasting strong eco-credentials, everything is handmade to order by skilled craftspeople in the UK, using sustainable wood and other eco-friendly materials and mediums.

Duffy London is used to being in the spotlight of the press, having appeared in top interior design magazines, and you may have even seen his Glo-Canvases featured in the backdrop of several TV programmes.

Some particularly noteworthy designs are the Shadow Chair, that appears to defy gravity by standing on only two legs, and the incredible UP Tables, which are a playful trompe l'oeil, giving the impression of a glass table top being suspended by balloons. Then there are the LAB Lamps, looking like something a mad scientist put together with bits of lab equipment, and the delightful Swing Table, which will transport you back to your childhood.

Bathrooms in Copper and Marble Look

Marble and copper, both are susceptible to staining and water damage. It's interesting, therefore, that the developer cum designer Cameron Ireland has pushed the boundaries for this home he designs.

A renovated and modernised five-bedroom home, Ireland opted for three bathrooms – a large family bathroom, complete with bathtub, plus two smaller bathrooms, one of which is an ensuite – and themed them all around marble and copper. For him, it's important to visually connect bathrooms in the same house . With very limited material palette – marble for its luxury, and the copper to link through to the retro-style Tom Dixon pendants they have specified in the kitchen and dining room."

To prevent the copper from oxidising and staining, the copper is coated in several layers of protective lacquer while the marble not actually the natural marble, it is a thin man-made porcelain slab, imported from Italy that comes in large 1.6m by 3.2m sheets. They give the look of of marble, without the downsides.

All fixtures in the three bathrooms are from minimalist style to avoid distracting from the copper and marble. + Trendideas

Kirin Natural Mineral Water by Kota Sagae

Due to recent trend of buying bottled water through Internet in Japan, Tokyo-based small design agency- SAGA was approached to re-design the Kirin Natural Mineral Water that will appeal to consumers with packaging design that will create harmony with interior and fashion.

Kota Sagae created 6 different types of design for the bottled water with transparent ink for printing and stuck to the transparent impression of the bottle without using the white plate, so that design pattern clearly appears only with clear ink.

"We made the water itself the protagonist of the design. One side of the bottle has the small product title only, so that the patterns of the back are seen through the refraction of water. The patterns look differently according to the angle. Such effect increases the presence of natural water itself and the water looks more delicious through the bottle.

We pursued how to make use of refraction of water. When I looked at the bottle from the front, I repeated the verification so that the design looks more beautiful through the water."

Mondo Eatery

Mondo Eatery was born in order to provide a restaurant and a cafe for the brand new Melter Hotel in the center of Nuremberg.

The word Mondo was the starting point for Neoos Design to conceive a concept based on nature and the outdoors. From that point, natural colors, warm materials and nature-shape forms were chosen to achieve an open and welcoming space where customers would feel relaxed in the heart of Nuremberg.

The main sitting area, a 9 meter long slatted oak bench, was conceptualized as a seamless element which would also define the flooring for the dining area, continuing towards the floor as a “wooden carpet”.

The other main eye catcher at Mondo is its back wall, composed by 2,400 “Schindeln” (shingle tiles) which are found very commonly in mountain areas near Nuremberg or the Alps. Felt was used for this element instead of wood in order to create an acoustic wall to improve the space acoustics.

The open ceiling was partially covered with “leaves” and “water lilies” made out of felt in order to enhance acoustics, but also to integrate ventilation pipes and other air conditioning elements.

Shower Beer-Specifically for Drinking in the Shower

No kidding. Now there is a beer specially brew for drinking in the shower.

Swedish brewery Pangpang and creative agency Snask have collaborated to create Shower Beer: a brew specifically made to be consumed in the shower.

A sweet but strong pale ale in a 18 cl small bottle meant to gulp in three sips while standing in the shower getting ready for the night. It will of course also work to start the night in any bar alone or with your friends. Screen printed in pink on a brown small glass bottle we want the Shower Beer to be seen by being slender, elegant and different. The first batch sold out instantly at the first release party. The 2nd is in the brewery tanks.

We’ve always wanted to have our own beer (like all hipsters do). But not any beer and certainly not just a regular creative agency brew saying “Snask Lager”. We wanted an idea, a concept, something bigger than just the actual beer. Something that could kickstart the night and act as your power up while fixing your hair while listening to “Dressed For Success” on repeat. We already work with the local genius brewer Fredrik “PangPang” Tunedal so it felt obvious that he would be the backbone of the brewing part.-- Snask

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.
