Babykake, is the mirror designed by Karim Rashid who says about his creation:
"The ultimate stimulation and inspiration to get the most out of life is by seeing ones own appearance evolve over time - a moment of self evaluation and self reflection. The hourglass shaped mirror emphasizes the urge to live life to the fullest whereas the integrated storage accommodates a space for material memories."
Mondovisione is the library designed by Giovanni Tommaso Garattoni. The designer says: "To link up with worldwide remind you of a long time ago when the events of foreign countries were really far away. A time where the satellite connections were the top of technology for a TV still in black and white.
A real idol to approach with deference, from which you could receive news from New York by mr Ruggero Orlando, the World Championship in Mexico '70 or, the supreme event, the first man on the moon!
Now that the screen, even no more as a household appliance but as a multimedial instrument, has definitively taken up the main wall, a remedy is needed, building an altar (technological) to put it at the centre of the scene, but also easily removing it from there to put on some books instead ."
Dazibao is the library designed by Elisabetta Gonzo and Alessandro Vicari. The designers explain: "Dazibao is a chinese word; the literal meaning is (wall) newspaper with big letters, it comes from the habit, since the dynastic times, to stick up personal writings on proper public notice board to allow everybody the reading.
Dazibao is a product that shows everything inside of it, it claims the right of expression, collects the pleasures of the collector and the literary pleasures and like every library it's built up by the passing of the time."
Miles and Plinskywho synthetizes his inspiration like this:
"... volume and surface again. From the surface to the volume again and then from the outline to what it could describe:
here are Miles and Plinsky, the perception of the materialization of the volume."
Palletcan be used as a TV stand, a low table and else; it's been designed by Adriano Design who explains:
"Pallet is "hybrid product" (work-table, TV stand and more...), useful, absolutely necessary but most of all, very simple. It can be used as a work-table, magazine-holder or as a movable station for a home entertainment system or in many other ways to invent. Its simplicity gives many solutions for each need of mobility in a house."
The small table Anemone who tells about the myth from which she was inspired: "The young and handsome Adonis was loved by Aphrodite.
One day, Ares, Aphrodite's lover, envious of the relationship between Adonis and Aphrodite, let the young guy meet a wild-boar. Adonis fought with the beast, but it hit him to death. Aphrodite desperate and depressed by the loss of her lover, turned her blood into the Anemone flower."
