German-Latvian designers georg dwalischwili and janis karklins of flow design have completely revolutionized the design of the boring clothing hanger with ‘cliq’ by eliminating the hook from the hanger. Replaced with strong earth magnets instead, the minimal natural birch hangers are capable of supporting up to two kilograms of weight, holding wardrobe items such as suits, coats, sweaters or t-shirts.

For the 10th anniversary of Ferruccio Laviani’s iconic lamp, Kartell has invited the designers on its team to re-interpret it in a new and fun way. This has resulted in a series of unique pieces that are part of a travelling exhibition. For Maison&Objet in Paris the flagship store on Blvd. Saint Germain has gathered together an evocative presentation of the 14 interpretations of Bourgie by Patricia Urquiola, Piero Lissoni, Front, Mario Bellini, Alberto Meda, Lenny Kravitz, Philippe Starck, Eugeni Quitllet, Christophe Pillet, Nendo, Tokujiin Yoshioka, Patrick Jouin, Ludovica+Roberto Palomba
and Rodolfo Dordoni.

INVASO by Stefano Claudio Bison

InVaso is one interesting looking vase because it’s made out of sponge, the same type of sponge you use to wash your car. Sponges are meant to hold water, which is one of the necessary factors to keep plants alive. Realized by industrial designer Stefano Claudio Bison, this container or vase is holding soil and plants, which contain other elements like mineral salts. So essentially what you have is a container of plants and soil that in turn are containers themselves of minerals and other elements.
