Pauline Deltour

As haute apprenticeships go, few have fared better than the French designer Pauline Deltour. After studying at the tony École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, she spent the late aughts in Munich working in the office of Konstantin Grcic. By 2009, she had struck out on her own, earning early commissions for Alessi (the A Tempo line of wire baskets) and Muji (a suite of wooden desk accessories). In 2013, Deltour’s multidisciplinary approach to product and installation design has been focused on the Salone Del Mobile furniture fair in Milan.

Janne Saario's Modern Skate Parks

We've reported on modern skate parks before, but rarely have we seen such a perfect marriage of skating and landscape design as the one embodied by the Finnish Janne Saario. Saario started skating when he was six, eventually got sponsored, and through his experience riding around the world he developed an interest in designing landscapes. He's got his own firm now, with a specialty in skate parks. Check out our slideshow of some of his designs as well as this great video that shows him at work and at play.
