7 Facts About Moooi Designer Lorenza Bozzoli

Milan-based designer Lorenza Bozzoli has a background in fashion and an aesthetic to match: colorful, poppy, and au courant.

Ceramic Designer We Love: Jeff Nimeh

Relocating from New York to Kyoto, Japan in 2012 not only marked a new beginning in his life, but proved to be a working catalyst for ceramicist Jeff Nimeh. All of the pieces from the designer's collection of "balanced and well-proportioned ceramic art" are skillfully wheel-thrown in porcelain and high-fired with select glazes. Incredible in its simplicity, the works are a quiet reminder of the inherent beauty of ceramic artisanship, dating back all the way to 25,000 BC. Nippon absorbed, we can't wait to see what the former New Yorker will present next.

Thread Wrapping Machine by Anton Alvarez

The Thread Wrapping Machine by Swedish-Chilean designer Anton Alvarez is a tool to join different types of material with only a glue-coated thread to bond it. No screws or nails are used to join the different components of the furniture. By using this construction method, materials such as wood, steel, and plastic can be joined to form objects and spaces. By using an externalized joint, Alvarez can combine a wide range of materials that normally would require time-consuming methods of jointing. A decorative pattern also appears with the different colors of the thread. Check out the video below to witness the machine in action.

Steven Holl's Daeyang Gallery and House on Film

In our May issue, we examine the connection between architecture and music in the work of expert architect Steven Holl. One of his latest projects, the Daeyang Gallery and House in Seoul, South Korea, takes its inspiration from an obscure score by composer Istvan Anhalt and transforms it into a shimmering trio of pavilions rising out of a pool of water. Holl, at times unhappy with the static experience of architecture in a magazine or book, hired filmmakers Spirit of Space to make two films on the house—one a meditative tour and the other an interview. Don't miss our story in the June issue, and to whet your appetite, check out the videos here.
