Lamps Made from Sawmill Waste and Tree Branches Embedded with Resin and LEDs

Lamps Made from Sawmill Waste and Tree Branches Embedded with Resin and LEDs
For his Brecce collection, Italian designer Marco Stefanelli devised an ingenious way of removing fragments from sawmill scraps, tree branches, and cement fragments, and replacing them with perfectly sculpted resin embedded with LEDs. The resulting lamps retain the organic nature of their original form yet cast a beautifully subdued light. You can see much more on Stefanelli’s blog. (via the awesomer)

Tea-time – Tea Steeper Design by Pengtao Yu Timely Steeping I am in love with the Tea-time tea steeper for its intuitive design and simplistic interaction between tea leaves, water and steeping time! A flipping action, akin to starting the timer, sets the tea making process into action. Loose tealeaves and hot water do their steeping business and the ready tea slowly trickles down to the bottom beaker. The timer/filter hold back the leaves and your cuppa is ready to sip! Designer: Pengtao Yu Tea-time is a 2011 Spark Awards entry. ntemporary Property In Madrid By A-Cero Architects Contemporary Property In Madrid By A-Cero Architects A-cero architecture studio has recently finished this contemporary home in The La Finca estate in the town Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid). The façade of the house is made of travertine marble which is combined with dark grey granite in several areas, as in the vertical plane of the main façade. White has the main role in the building (in interiors and exteriors). Furthermore, it has numerous ample windows. Both elements give to the house a lot of light and vitality. In the exterior area of the home there is a barbecue and a spectacular bar designed by A-cero besides a exterior swimming pool (with jacuzzi).

Domus Civita by Studio F By Paige • Jan 2, 2013 • Selected Work Domus Civita by Studio F is located in Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy. The challenge with the remodeling of the project was designing a space suitable for today’s living while still honoring the 2600 year old structure. Domus Civita by Studio F: “Domus Civita was purchased in a disastrous state in 2011 by owner and architect Patrizio Fradiani and his partner Mark. Inhabited but abused and cut up, the house main structure was part of a larger building divided up in the 20th century even though the original structure dates from the 14th century, when the town of Civita di Bagnoregio current urban layout developed. However the most interesting feature of the house was its umbilical connection to its underground world all carved into the soft volcanic tufa stone. The renovation project became an exercise in creating a suitable connection that would embrace all these different spaces and make 2600 years of architectural history feel organic and livable.

French architectural firm Fabre | de Marien converted a small 441 square foot double garage into the perfect size residence for a single individual, and perhaps even a minimalist couple. The dwelling features all the necessary amenities including a shower room and its functionaries, the boiler, washing machine, a dressing room, a sofa/bed convertible when needed, an office, storage space, a staircase and a sleeping space above.
