Flamed beech Cuivre, Diva 139

Discover Diva 139 Flamed Beech by French wood flooring manufacturer Panaget. Panaget’s range of French beechwood floors are sourced and manufactured entirely in France.The beech tree is the second most abundant deciduous tree in France’s forests. The heartwood tissue undergoes a natural oxidisation process to produce the distinctive flamed beech effect. This reaction scorches the wood (we say that the heartwood is ‘étoilé’ or ‘starlit’), producing wooden panels with contrasting grain colours. Soft and silky to the touch, flamed beechwood is similar in strength to oak.Cuivre: elegant oiled floors with a range of nuanced tones.The warm sheen of the majestic Cuivre floors gives this living room a chic, understated vibe – perfect for relaxing.

Malvasia

A lamp that speaks of the land, of tradition, vineyards and sun-soaked hillsides. With its elegant shape, at times resembling a wine glass, other a decanter, it encourages a welcoming, hospitable environment. The quiet harmony of rounded shapes and oblique edges, the grace of the blown glass and the warmth of wood give this collection of lamps a very special convivial personality. A homage to Bacchus and to anyone who loves good wine and good company. A collection suitable for the home but also to give a twist to a public place, a bar or restaurant.   A collection of indoor suspension lamps in different shapes and sizes.

Dimora Sighé

Dimora Sighé, located in Alessano, in the Italian region Puglia, is a 19th-Century rural building used in the past as a place for the olive preservation and now converted into a design house. The name Sighé comes from the ancient Greek and means “quiet”, “silence”: this is because, thanks to the birdsong, the whispering sound of the wind and the ringing of bells in the distance, every moment spent in this house gives people a sense of peace.   All the materials used are faithful to the territory: cocciopesto, local stone and wood. With their wooden frames in beechwood, the Load chairs with woven backs in marine ropes, designed by Emilio Nanni for Billiani, furnish the dining room. More

Bramasole House

The site’s previous existence was a market garden with shelterbelts forming large outdoor rooms. Our client then planted part of the site with vineyards and fenced off paddocks for horses. He built a barn and a dressage arena. The house presented an opportunity to bring order to the large site. Some division was needed between the private home and the public dressage arena. Bi-axial landscaping elements of Gabion baskets were employed to divide the site into quadrants. The gabion basket walls start low demarcating entry points and rise up to form the anchor wall of the house.The house has 3 positive elements with negative spaces between. These positive elements house the Lanai, the garage and the bedrooms. They are articulated as simple box... More

Burnside Residence

The courtyard was to be a focal point: meditative, protective and quiet, in contrast to the outdoor areas along the ridge. Views were to be revealed subtly, gradually. The house was to appear rooted in the earth, with lots of light.All of the design elements were determined with the idea of light being a form-defining element. This approach is complemented with an aesthetic that takes the Santa Fe style and integrates a Zen like simplicity to the range of materials and details.Pure geometric forms established the plan, the use of authentic materials set the tone and nature was abstracted to highlight and contrast the house. An important aspect of nature is light and in New Mexico, at this site, the clarity of that light is received into a v... More

BUGA Wood Pavilion

The BUGA Wood Pavilion celebrates a new approach to digital timber construction. Its segmented wood shell is based on biological principles found in the plate skeleton of sea urchins, which have been studied by the Institute for Computational Design and Construction (ICD) and the Institute for Building Structures and Structural Design (ITKE) at the University of Stuttgart for almost a decade.  As part of the project, a robotic manufacturing platform was developed for the automated assembly and milling of the pavilion’s 376 bespoke hollow wood segments. This fabrication process ensures that all segments fit together with sub-millimetre precision like a big, three-dimensional puzzle. The stunning wooden roof spans 30 meters over one of B... More
