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.".

+ Architect Hitoshi Abe interview @ designboom. Via Dezain.

+ Studio Bility's Gudrun Gunnlaugsdottir is interviewed at design*sponge. "we decided on the Polder instead of a new we drive an old car and have a new sofa!".

+ ... and Magali Jeambrun's etc. creations chairs @ design*sponge.

+ 5.5 Designers' O aquarium/vase @ Core77. "O's simple amorphous design eliminates the need for decorative (and often tacky) accessories used in fish tanks and makes room for a real bouquet".

+ NorthernLighting's Maze Lamp @ DESIGNSPOTTER. "The Maze lamp developed from the idea of literally putting things on the edge.".

+'s Gilles Roudot goes to the St-Etienne Design Biennale.

+ 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.".

+ Caleido's Flora Design Radiator @ Trendir. "This design radiator is composed of red meth-acrylate that has been manipulated by lasers and mounted on a steel slab".

+ Storm From The East spots a new Philippe Starck watch design for Fossil.

+ 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.".

+ Japan Design Net covers Tokyo Designer's Week 2006. Via Dezain.

+ 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.".
