This Swimming Pool Sits Comfortably In The Countryside Of Portugal

Mario Martins Atelier designed this swimming pool at a home in Portugal, where the design intention was described as “simple with a quiet presence, and where the natural vegetation, of almond and carob trees, typical of the Algarve countryside, predominates.”

A Modern Loft with Character

Loft apartments always have a distinct feel. Their openness, combined with their usual amounts of streaming light, makes them instantly appealing for most urban dwellers. Who wouldn’t want more light and a sense of more space in what’s usually a more crowded area? But lofts can also feel a bit cookie cutter, especially when the original space has been mass-converted to support loft living. A dozen or more lofts with the same feel and layout can feel stifling. This loft, designed by Indot, takes the idea of a traditional loft and plays with it using geometry, color, and texture. Don’t think that lofts are just limited to red exposed brick and neutrally painted walls.

Shady Seating

This clever seating series by Duffy London is sure to get plenty of head turns as it plays with the viewer’s perception! Each chair, has a permanent, unwavering shadow that acts not only as a visual peculiarity, but an integral part of the cantilevered support structure. Chairs appear to balance on two legs and, complimented by various shadow characters, it’s almost believable!

Flying Carpet

This cantilevered sculptural easy chair is unique.

Its swinging form stimulates playfully changing sitting positions between upright and relaxed. Flying Carpet impresses as a single piece, but can also be grouped to an ensemble. The cover is removable, the basic construction is delicate but robust.   (Desanta)
