Home Futures: Living in Yesterday’s Tomorrow

£29.95

Quantity
The ‘home of the future’ has long intrigued designers and popular culture alike. Whether it was the dream of the fully mechanised home or the notion that technology might liberate us from home altogether, the domestic realm was a site of endless invention and speculation. But what happened to those visions? Are today’s smart homes the future that architects and designers once predicted, or has our idea of home proved resistant to real change? Explores today’s home through the prism of yesterday’s imagination. Alongside original essays by leading voices in the field, this richly illustrated book features more than 200 colour images, organised in six thematic sections exploring privacy, the smart home, compact living, self-sufficiency, nomadic lifestyles and the idea of the home as an idyllic landscape. Ultimately this book proposes that we are already living in yesterday’s tomorrow, just not in the way anyone predicted The designers, architects and artists featured in this book include:Absalon // Ron Arad // Archigram // Archizoom Associati // Atelier Van Lieshout // Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec // Andrea Branzi // Joe Colombo // Michael Craig-Martin // Dunne & Raby // Yona Friedman // Buckminster Fuller // Richard Hamilton // Hans Hollein // Haus-Rucker-Co // Industrial Facility // Jan Kaplický // Frederick Kiesler // Mark Leckey // Linder // Enzo Mari // OpenStructures // Gaetano Pesce // Ugo la Pietra // Alison and Peter Smithson // SO–IL // Ettore Sottsass // Studio Makkink & Bey // Superstudio // Andrea Zittel With original essays on the home and its future by:Deyan Sudjic // Adam Greenfield // Pier Vittorio Aureli, Martino Tattara and Marson Korbi of Dogma // Sarah Kember // Emilio Ambasz // Jing Liu of SO–IL // Justin McGuirk // Eszter Steierhoffer

Nuage Vase Nuage Vase

Nuage Vase

£85.00

Size
Quantity
The shape of the Nuage vases made its first appearance in the oeuvre of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec in 2002. Reminiscent of a cloud, the motif was originally produced as a plastic shelf module that can be grouped into clusters or large-scale configurations. Eight tubular cavities pierce the flat surfaces of the modular element while also defining the form's outer contours For the Nuage vase, the designers executed the cloud motif in extruded aluminium profiles of varying lengths. The cavities in the basic form are now positioned upright, dividing the vase into eight individual tubes that can be used for the artful arrangement of flowers and grasses. The undulating surfaces, with an anodised finish in various colours, produce an attractive interplay of light and shadow. Thanks to their precise outer contours, the vases can be fitted together to create entire 'cloud formations'

Eames Radio

£849.00

After developing a successful method for moulding plywood in the early 1940s, Charles and Ray Eames employed the acquired know-how to create a wide range of products – including radio cabinets. By 1952, roughly 200,000 radios with cabinets designed by the Eameses had been sold by various manufacturers One design, however, never went into production: an elegant table radio with a moulded plywood case, whose compact shape and austere, more technical look were unusual for the time. Completely conceived by the Eameses in 1946, the radio was rejected by the designated manufacturer, who wanted a 'normal design'. Charles and Ray sent photographs of the prototype to the magazine 'Interiors'; matchbooks were included in the pictures as a scale reference. Their aim was to increase the acceptance of smaller, more modern devices. However, this goal proved elusive, and the production of Eames radios was discontinued in the early 1950s More than 70 years later, Vitra has joined the Eames Office to revive the design of this compact radio, which was a favourite of Charles and Ray. Encased in an elegant walnut cabinet and equipped with up-to-date technology by the British manufacturer REVO, the Eames Radio today bears witness to the designer couple's unwavering belief in progress The Eames Radio is available in a limited edition of 999 units

The Eames Plywood Mobile models by Vitra are replicas of the original mobiles, designed in 1941 by Charles & Ray Eames.

The two of them found the random mobiles so beautiful that they hung the models up in their apartment in Los Angeles Available in two models: A and B

Algues are interior design components and decorative elements at the same time. A seemingly plant-like plastic object which is delicate and flexible yet very strong. In its own right, it works as a simple decoration element with a strange poetic character The possibilities range from a delicate gossamer, which can serve as a trellis or light curtain, to almost opaque, thick plastic screens made up of multiple layers of Algues, for use as a room divider Algue calls on the creativity of its users and although it is a standardised and industrially produced modular unit, still allows room for customised solutions With the semi-transparent Algue, you now have the chance to work with an almost invisible room divider and play with light effects at the same time. 25 Algues are needed for a 1m² light network structure. If the structure needs to be denser, it is recommended that you attach the additional connectors which are available as an optional accessory.

Whether it is used as a toy (indoor or out) or as a decorative item in a child's room - this friendly-looking animal with its distinctive, over-sized ears is bound to bring joy to children and parents alike In 1945, Charles and Ray Eames designed the legendary Plywood Elephant. Only two prototypes of this complex design were manufactured and only one remains in the Eames Family Archives Charles and Ray Eames were fascinated by elephants. Many images of these gentle giants were found in Charles' photographic documentations of Indian culture and the circus world. The Plywood Elephant was originally designed as a toy for children, but it also a striking sculptural object that makes a statement with its vigorous curves and delightful character In 2007, Vitra introduced a limited anniversary edition of the Eames Plywood Elephant. The response was so great Vitra decided to produce a new version for children: the Eames Elephant made of plastic Available in four different colours: White, Black, Pink and Ice Blue The Eames Elephant is approved according to the GS and CE safety standards

It was crafted as a wall decoration for The Compound restaurant and Girard's own house in Santa Fe The Heart is made from durable brass with reflective properties.

Thanks to the included holder, the arrow can easily be mounted. Lead the eye of visitors to any room in which it is hung

Alexander Girard was a versatile skilled architect and designer for furniture and textiles, interior design, graphic design, exposition design and industrial design. These graphic cushions in three distinct patterns: heart, maze graph and eyes, represent his versatility and graphic skills The world of Alexander Girard consisted of happy colours and patterns, abstract and geometrical shapes or unique colour constellations. The focus of his work was textile design, where he expressed his love for colours, textures and graphical patterns Girard unified motives of traditional arts with abstract patterns in his works. Even his simplest graphical patterns reached high differentiation because of their clear colours and many of his patterns and figures express delighted playfulness. The graphic print pillows vitalise some of these designs: abstract graphical or expressive figurative patterns make up powerful accents
