A family of cups where every cup will find it’s own soulmate in a family.
Each cup has it’s own way to be treated. Every time, while holding a different cup, the holder has to adjust his hand and mind to the piece he is holding. In time various shapes and handles let you personalize your cups.
The cups are made from one mould, then every handle is cut into different a shape.
The new collection from Axo Light is a series of upturned goblets, overlapping transparencies and contrasting colours.
SNIJLAB, a Dutch design studio based in Rotterdam, has introduced a series of booklets fabricated entirely from wood. Cut from a single sheet of birch plywood, a clever array of laser-cut perforations allows for the cover to hinge with complete flexibility, while another wooden piece clamps an A7 format notebook inside. A series of slits on the back cover allows for a band to be slipped in and around the cover, keeping the notebook shut.

Consider the origins of furniture – philosophical and sociological aspects – the way a piece of furniture functions in a room, how it is conceived by its users, and how form, materials and any other aspect of a piece of furniture affect our senses.
Oak. is the result of an extracurricular, collaborative activity between 18 students from the BA and MA programs at Lund University School of Industrial Design. The project began with a workshop led by Jonas Lindvall of Lindvall A&D, exploring archetypes and stereotypes in the world of furniture.

Children of a young age play with small wooden blocks to learn the alphabet. Letters lead to words that lead into sentences and so on. Our oversized kraft boxes reintroduce the alphabet not as 26 distinct letters, but as the result of combining geometric parts. The 4-inch cubes may be viewed and stacked from any direction, creating unexpected shapes and letterforms. The boxes are made from recycled cardboard, delivered flat (assembling is part of the fun). This is a prototype. It is available for exhibit, licensing, etc.

Paper table by Scholten & Baijings combines subtlety with elegance. The folded cardboard models for the crockery are translated into light grey, unglazed porcelain cups and plates, playing with the suggestion of cardboard delicately. For the table linen the duo offers a contemporary solution: they designed two sets containing of napkins and table runners which can be used in various combinations. Their design is completed with a set of sober shaped glassware and cutlery.
Oskar Peet is a graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven and currently works as a designer at studio Scholten&Baijings.
“Color reflection through the combination of colors and materials. The play of surface to surface reflections with the purpose of experimentation on how these three criteria (reflection/ shape/ color) effect each other and how they influence their surroundings, any available light is captured and reflected back to produce the desired light ambiance.”
The research phase un-folded my interest in viewing color in an indirect way, seeing the resolute color via a neighbouring surface, which provided a distinct atmosphere.
