Serralunga icona dell’innovazione al Salone del Mobile 2010

“Ho preferito investire sul DNA della mia azienda per arrivare preparato al futuro. Dobbiamo andare oltre il prodotto e la produzione, e migliorare la capacità di progettare anche la comunicazione”- dichiara Marco Serralunga. E così l’azienda ha scelto il più importante degli “stage” per debuttare con il nuovo logo e con la nuova immagine. Due parole esprimono la nuova anima dell’azienda: Living Outside. Un pay-off semplice e d’impatto, come la filosofia Serralunga. Ore passate in ufficio, dentro una palestra o un locale: in una società che tende a rinchiuderti, Serralunga riscopre la voglia di stare all’aria aperta in compagnia di amici. Disegnata nel 1922 dai designer Knoll e Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, la poltrona Barcellona è ormai un pezzo di storia del design internazionale.

Michael Lydon, a well-known writer on popular music since the 1960s, has for many years also been writing about writing.

The Power of Metaphor : Word Count

Lydon's essays, written with a colloquial clarity, shed fresh light on familiar and not so familiar aspects of the writing art. Here Lydon explores how metaphors have the power to "fuse fact and fancy. " The word metaphor comes from the Greek metapherein, "carry over"; transfer is a synonym with Latin roots. All writing may be called metaphor, because writing transfers life into word. Once we agree that life may be fairly described with words — house, horse, walking, talking — we can use words as metaphors of reality to convey our experience to others. If we call every word a metaphor, however, we reduce metaphor to a label.

Instead, writing leaps the labeling limit by applying the power of metaphor to itself. Praise for the Visual Thesaurus.

Underground Home Designs - Swiss Mountain House Rocks!

Share it: In underground home designs, this unusual house plan is the collaboration between the Netherlands architects at SeARCH and Christian Muller Architects. This underground home, located in the Swiss village of Vals, is set amidst a cluster of mountain houses and if you don’t look carefully you might miss it! The most striking thing about this stone house is the majestic Alpine view through a wide, elliptical opening in the hillside, revealing spacious outdoor entertaining areas that lead to the home’s main entrance.

Another entrance from a nearby barn leads residents and guests through an underground pathway, providing an alternate entryway into the home. Please Leave a Comment Posted on December 3, 2009 7:23 PM Comments (3) Hummingbirds fly backwards.
