What do you really love? Ask that to Italian design brand Vanoalto and you’ll immediately know their weakness: craftsmanship and contemporary art, 2 worlds that manage to converge only thanks to imperceptible magic, between improvisation and mania. Like in their latest series of furniture and objects with sculptural lines: “The things I love”.
Especially for small humans PIXERS has prepared a wall decals collection called Kawaii Boom, with the main motif of Japanese kawaii, a unique quality of cuteness existing in the culture of Japan. It seems that it has become a prominent aspect of Japanese popular culture, entertainment, clothing, food, toys, personal appearance, behaviour, and mannerisms. The collection of sweet and lovely bunnies and bears will be attractive not only for kids, but also for older aficionados of anime and manga.
The most important and primary aspect of any business is its Logo. A Logo representing the theme and nature of business and no doubt we can say its identity of any company. Logo of any company should not match with other company either that is competitor or not. There is copyright issue in logo design.
For 8 years the design calendar much sought after by communication de- signers has been detecting visual trends. The 2014 issue is devoted to the theme of motion and velocity.
Everything is in motion! The world is changing before our eyes at an accelerating rate.In regard to both human interaction and economic process, life is gaining complexity and picking up speed, and the velocity of the change surrounding us is becoming a central concept of our time. NEW MOVE! portrays outstanding design solutions dealing with abstract and concrete motion. Design – whether artistic or commercial – that breaks new ground in translating the concepts of mobility, speed and change into a visual language. Design that inspires.
The calendar is definitely a design object itself and the issue a special highlight for paper fans. Each individual cover was engraved in a 5-minute production process using laser technology. The cover material consists of 4 layers of paper and a mix of 2 colours. It features a sophisticated bevel cut on 3 edges of the paper. The title was printed with daylight luminous screen-printing colour which makes it shine on the grey paper. All these efforts where taken to capture a dynamic typography taken from a motion sequence on static material.

The Dutch are merchants by nature and their queen Beatrix is no exception. In March of 2011, 1540 royal objects of the Netherlands went up for auction and among these some furniture from the palace of Princess Juliana (Beatrix’s mother), that architect and designer Rolf of Studio Rolf.fr won, transforming them with new aesthetic and functional adjustments.
You hardly ever see it. Polyurethane foam is the most hidden padding there is, but Dafi Reis-Doron (born in 1981) has invented a process that makes it decorative and tactile on chairs and stools. All it needs now is a patent.
For her project “75% Control”, the Israeli designer invented an open mold, a sort-of wooden skeleton that allows the polyurethane to chemically react, expand like foam in the furniture’s structure and generate a colorful fabric-like cushion.
