H&M: History and Modernity live together in harmony.

This side of a refurbished granary, becomed a directional building, is conceived like a cubic picture.

Great balance of surfaces, forms, colors and materials. 

Above all, great sensitivity between history and modernity...

In the Imperia hinterland, in Italy, the bedrooms of a restructured farmhouse are caracterized by an original use of wood, metal and terracotta.
The result is an unexpected sensation of lightness...

Elica is an italian company, that produce high quality design hoods.
Nuage is a wall-mounted cooking hood, but indeed it's something more....

In fact it's a dynamic event along the surface of the wall, a refined and elegant gesture , innovative in the kitchen conception design. 
The skin of the wall surface opens itself to receive an  integrated plastic movement. 

It's seeming to grow out from the wall.

The dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde, with a crowdfunding initiative,  has realized the first air-cleaner urban tower.
It's high 7 metres, and can purify 3000 cubic meters of air per hour.
The collected particulate is embedded in resin and mounted on rings, given to lenders of the crowdfunding initiative.
Fantastic: Design + Ecology + Social all together!
