Activities Dec 09

The past week had been a very hectic one albeit a fun and exciting time. We had our very first workshop, had to answer some tough questions from participants. Yeah, I said tough because we can't tell any bullshit without being found out! All who came were very smart people!

Yesterday, we had pastry chef Melinda Soon from Apple Kitchen over to conduct a Christmas cupcake making class. I had fun just watching them, imagining it was childhood playdoh time! We even had a very special "student" all the way from Johor as there is no such baking class over there.

The participants having fun during playdoh time!

Melinda showing her finished work.

Everyone must have had an enjoyable time as Melinda is already planning the next baking session in January. Will keep everyone updated!

Tub Furniture

This black lacquered bathtub is from a collection designed by Jaime Hayon in 2005. The styling combines baroque and contemporary design as "modern meets old". The legs provide a bit of the baroque styling whereas the clean lines and play of black and white make it quite contemporary.

In review of Dornbracht’s 1992 offering,Tara—a collection of vertically oriented taps and mixers that presents a clean, streamlined aesthetic—showed us that slim is good, that a simple, minimistically-designed and highly-functional faucet can become iconic within the space of 17 short years. With the Supernova line, manufacturer Dornbracht is attempting something of a reprise, though the new collection of course sports a brand new aesthetic.
By placing all the fixtures in the center of the room, and thus establishing the “island” motif, Dornbracht and Sieger Design have created “a form of architecture which becomes a solitary unit in itself.” This new creature—the “island” bathroom—establishes the sense of spacious luxury at the nexus of the Supernova aesthetic. And this aesthetic is both innovative and pervasive, since the futuristic angular “shower wall” that emerges from the center of the room, very like the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey, is patterned in turn (and precise miniaturized replica) by the basin and tub mixers, while the whole ensemble (the series includes proximal shower seating as well as tub-side shelves or counter-space) mirrors the hard angles and precise lines of the central architectural element.

As Dornbracht puts it, “the result is an island in the room which places all of the functions and zones of the bathroom right at the very centre… upon closer inspection of the exposed design, it becomes clear that the high-gloss surfaces of the fittings constantly reflect the island’s individual laguna-like water zones.” The unified nature of shower, tub, and mixers indeed establishes this motif of reflection, a theme that’s also suggested in, as Dornbracht says, the way the fixtures’ finish (available in chrome, champagne, or platinum) reflects the water back upon itself. In sum, Supernova is very like the name might suggest, “an extremely luminous burst of colorful radiation, occurring about once every 50 years.” Let’s hope this bathroom collection, like the earlier Tara, shines on for many years to come

Before they became B&B Italia, the company of C&B Italia and Gaetano Pesce collaborated to create the Up series in 1969. This collaboration brought together the furniture industry and an artist on the Up project. Gaetano Pesce brought his influence to the project and in particular his own personal interpretation of women as viewed by society. He stated, "I was telling a personal story about my notion of women: despite themselves, women have always been prisoners of their own making. Along these lines, I liked the idea of giving this armchair a feminine shape with a ball and chain, the traditional image of the prisoner." Thus, was the inspiration that created Up 5_6 which is now an iconic piece of furniture history. The "ball and chain" chair and ottoman set were reproduced in 2000 with improved upholstery and manufacturing techniques. The Up series remains a popular part of B&B Italia's furniture line. Via.
