This week's MoCo picks.
+ Stuart Tanner Architects' Pirates Bay House @ Arkinetia. "The clients requested a contemporary, steel framed building that made best use of an awkward site and brought the coastal aspect of its location into the living spaces.".
+ Studio Bility's Gudrun Gunnlaugsdottir is interviewed at design*sponge. "we decided on the Polder instead of a new car...so we drive an old car and have a new sofa!".
+ ... and Magali Jeambrun's etc. creations chairs @ design*sponge.
+ HULGER has produced their first ever wooden PIP*PHONE. "Fashioned from the distinctively grained African hardwood Ziricote, long used for decorative objects, the phone blends innovation with tradition. The Ziricote* comes in its own wooden box and is accompanied by a pot of wax, for treatment.".
+ Chesney's Flueless Fireplace (that's Radium above) @ Luxist. "[It] uses a unique catalytic system that burns the odorous and stale air in the room and efficiently returns warm and neutral air back into your airspace.".
+ boicozine and magculture review some new architecture mags including Architect, Pin-Up, A10, Volume and Inside. . "I don’t know if it’s some sort of ‘Mark Effect’ or if architecture has suddenly become ‘hip’ or sheer coincidence, but new magazines seem to be cropping up every few months.".
