architecture / scandinavian design

[all images courtesy of BIG.dk] it’s opened now! this has been one of my favorite projects by BIG and i am so excited to see its completion!! the images of realized museum are just as good as they looked in the renderings! and yes, the new&old (transforming a old concrete dry dock into a modern museum), the simple  material palette (concrete, steel, glass), and the modern design language (minimal)… all have made this project onto my […]

[all images courtesy of femina.dk| photos by Claudi & Capion ] with the size of 69m2, the owner of this apartment in copenhagen, denmark is not shy about using color. mix yellow blue and red all together in a small space sounds a bit risky as these colors might take away the sense of openness (oppose to leave everything white and lighter color). yet with the white wood floor, concrete wall, exposed wood post and gray furniture…  the […]

design / scandinavian design

[all images by menu] a collaboration between two of my favorite design force – danish design company menu and stockholm-based design studio note , the result is a minimal and geometric smart candle holder called POV (point of view). as the name POV indicated, the focal object can be altered depends on your point of view. this candle holder reads like a axon cube drawing from front view, yet the lines of three edges actually are lifted and […]

[all images courtesy of BOsthlm.se] spotted via trendenser.se, this apartment with simple and crisp interior has the perfect size as a mini getaway pad. * i’ve been imaging this minimal(manageable) space where i can bring my laptop there and work or read without any interruption. of course, there will be no tv in this mini pad. and i know, i sound more like making a fancy,unlikely day-dream… there is a little compromised layout in this apartment.

[all images courtesy of finn.no ] again, concrete, wood and white. there are just so many ways to use these three elements! i’ve been following elisabeth heier‘s blog for some time now, mainly because her lovely home in oslo that often featured in her blog. composed with white, exposed wood beams/posts and accentuated material like concrete, this three-room apartment on the top floor is full of natural sunlight – and it comes with a patio.

design

[all images courtesy os&oos] when it comes to minimal design, finding the simplicity (simple language) in complexity (concept presented) becomes designers challenge. and there is no exception to lighting design as well. designed by sophie mensen, one of the founders of OS&OOS, the “occultation” from SYZYGY series,is inspired by the sun and its surrounding celestial bodies, where the light quality can be adjust but this time on the human scale. you can view the complete project images from os&oos’s website.
