BBC North Atrium Pods
by ID:SR / Sheppard Robson

These steel-clad pods were designed for the office of the British Broadcasting Corporation in Salford, England. Catered for use as individual booths and as a gathering place, they fit into office corridors, converting unused spaces into workplace hubs.

Espacio Fundacíon Telefónica
by Quanto Arquitectura

Tucked into Madrid’s Gran Vía and inspired by Greek and Roman amphitheatres, this double-use seating unit provides conference-style seating while also folding down to create a continuous wooden bench.

Impulsive Furnishing Unit
by Christian Fiebig / Itay Ohaly / Thomas Vailly

Created to furnish the lounge area of the C-Fabriek exhibition at Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, Netherlands,which emphasized the means of production in design, the designers used a CNC machine on a plywood pallet to produce a range of bright furniture that can be flat packed and easily assembled.

Lightweeds / UMNH Salt Lake City
by Studio Simon Heijdens Ltd

Settled in the lobby of the Utah Museum of Natural History, USA, this interactive light project brings nature inside. Reacting to data from environmental sensors located outside, plants grow, move and behave as their real counterparts would – and visitors help pollinate by moving ‘seeds’ from wall to wall.

Social 01
by i29 interior architects

For this social workplace in Delft, Netherlands, i29 interior architects created a range of chairs, tables and carpets that are both serious and colourful. Set against a grey background, ‘islands’ of activity are arranged through red, green and blue furnishings.

Socialization Spaces
by Menendez y Gamonal Arquitectos SLP

Designed to encourage students to interact, this table for the Milan campus of Oviedo University, Spain, was inspired by Gruyère cheese and a painting palette. The curving design creates nooks and spaces where students can study and brainstorm.

Spaceship HEART – Madrid
by Collective Paper Aesthetics

Formed out of cardboard blocks, this ‘spaceship’ formed a public installation in Madrid, Spain.The hand- made blocks, which were assembled using neither glue or tools, double as kids-size stools

Studio mk27 hq
by Studio mk27

For their office in Sao Paolo, Brazil, Studio mk27 expanded onto their terrace by creating a large ceramic-tiled table for meetings.The lengthy table was designed around hand-painted blue tiles by artist Calu Fortes that draw on Portuguese, Japanese and English influences.

Tumble Seed
by Carmela Bogman

For a pension administration company in The Hague, Netherlands, Carmela Bogman created free-floating stools crafted from aluminium and wood. Based on the shape of a seed, these stools require the sitter’s balance and concentration.

by Pakamoko (Patrick Kaczmarek / Moritz Koehn)

Produced for a ‘slow food’ restaurant in Germany, Pakamoko’s apparently soft, pillowy lamps are formed from an unexpected material: concrete.The lamps were left with a raw and unvarnished look, and formed in individual moulds.

Jana Scholze will personally award the winner, who will receive a €25,000 grand prize, on Wednesday April 10 during the Salone del Mobile in Milan. The ceremony and VIP cocktail will be held at Area 56 (via Savona 56) and is by invitation only.

An exhibition on the 10 shortlisted projects will be available throughout the entire week of the Salone on artistic, informative panels at via Savona 56. A panel discussion will take place following the ceremony, on Thursday 11 April at via Savona 56, from 13:00 - 14:00. The panel will include, Jana Scholze, Curator of Contemporary Furniture at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, Robert Thiemann, editor in chief of Frame, and special design and architecture related personalities.

Welcome new mood lamps

  Northern Lighting presented the novelty lamps: Bake me a cake; Butterfly in heat-treated copper; Plank in dark Kebony pine wood; Spiff and Acorn, during the Stockholm fair.

Iconic Butterfly in new wrapping

 The Butterfly lamp,  designed by Sven 1.Dysthe in 1964, is now available in heart-treated copper. Each lamp is unique by virtue of its heat-treated copper composition, which adds depth and warmth to this small iconic lamp, taking on  adifferent pattern  and structure on each pice. The surface radiates a warm glow to ward up the winter blues. The new lamp made its way to the spot light in Stockholm. Read more about Butterfly here.
