Editor’s Pick: Invisible Kitchen by i29 interior architects

Invisible Kitchen i29 Interior Architects despoke 3

When you discover my predilection for traditional detail mixed with modern, it will not come as a surprise to know that the Invisible Kitchen by i29 interior architects ticks all the boxes for me. What with its white room, statement architectural detail, wooden floors and hidden appliances, I am inspired.

The designers aimed to develop a kitchen system that seemed to disappear in space. “The design is reduced to it’s absolute minimum, having a top surface of only a couple of centimeters thickness with all water, cooking and electrical connections included. Large sliding wall panels conceal all kitchen appliances and storage space,” said the architects. Continue Reading…

Clearing the shed may not be the most pleasant of jobs, but imagine how satisfied you will feel when it is done.

Tibu bar stool designed by Anderssen & Voll for Magis

Tibu copy 2

The bar stool with gas lift is one of Magis’s most important inventions, introduced with Giovannoni’s Bombo in 1997. Ever since its arrival the brand has set out to reinterpret this category, by spontaneously representing the height-adjustment feature in a new way.  Tibu is the latest design by Anderssen & Voll to add to the collection.

Both the seat and footrest of the Tibu, are connected in a distinctly continuous shape, the base and the trunk are connected as a balancing counterpart. Magis would never have given this shape to a bar stool with a fixed height. The organization of the various parts expresses the possibility of movement.

The stool is monochrome in order to give all the parts of the product equal importance. Scratch-proof steel added to the soft seat  safeguards the purity, geometry and simplicity of its design.

Handpicked Pin: Dry in style


Each week we will feature a current pin that has stopped us in our tracks. This image caught our attention, we love the look of collapsible rails in a group. There can be nothing worse than a whole load of washing messing up the interior of the style conscious, so, if you have to display the washing, do in style with folding wall hung rails.
