- ‘Paris‘ is an iconic lounge chair designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1929 and made from rattan. Paris was the first chair designed by Jacobsen, even before he graduated as an architect. A hundred years later it’s as stylish as ever.
- I’m in Alicante, Spain writing this. Every morning I walk past front doors with wonderfully scented jasmine climbers all over them. What a great way to greet yourself, family and visitors! Seen in this photo is CESTRUM nocturnum, commonly known as night jasmine.
- What a colourful installation! This pavillion can be found on the Spree river bank in Berlin. It’s entitled ‘Filtered Rays’ and is designed by Yinka Ilori. The construction is made from re-used scaffolding and translucent, conical discs produced from recyclable polytetrafluoroethylene.
- I like the futuristic look of this ‘Cornet‘ pollard from Bover. It includes a dimmable LED source that distributes light through the lamp’s undulating layers, creating an atmosphere that is natural, slightly broken, but never dominant.
- Chair No 1 in this week’s board is made from Indonesian rattan. This arm chair (literally speaking) forms part of Chris Wolston’s Nalgona chairs. They are made from Colombian Mimbre ethically sourced from the Colombian Amazon.
- These muted coloured outdoor rugs are designed by Henrik Pedersen for Gloster. The material comprise braided Sunbrella acrylic / polypropylene outdoor rope.
