New Light

According to Moooi “Tegelaar’s designs shed a new light on undervalued materials and existing techniques, resulting in the industrial-inspired products” we only have to add that: these designs are elegant, fragile and they can be the (must-have of the decade) ‘focal point’ in your home if you want to, but they don’t have to.

See an editorial in which we, at Mimi Berlin, used the Filigree Floor Lamp, a long time ago……..

Milan Design Week 2018 Cubism

Cubism in Interior Design

Next to many round and friendly interior design we also noticed some cubist inspired decor. Not that much, but we feel it could well be the next trend. It almost has to be, because all the ‘Barbapapa’ furniture design you can think of has already been made, for a couple of seasons, by all brands at this point.

These four are the most evident examples of design, leaning towards Cubist shapes: Carpet from Moroso/ Mural by Siri Carlén for Lammhults / Motorcycle Samotracia Mario Trimarchi for De Castelli / Mirror from ClassiCon.

Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov

Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov

The Carpet interiors by Farid Rasulov are installations and digital prints of entirely upholstered rooms in which he stages animals in white. We, at Mimi Berlin, think they are wonderful. We would transform our house into Rasulov’s Carpet Interiors but we dont own a vacuum cleaner: so that’s a no go, period. Farid “Rasulov is active across a wide range of artistic media – large scale paintings, installations, 3D graphics, animation and sculpture.” (read more faridrasulov.com)

Dogs in the Livingroom is an installation from the solo show at the Raboan Moussoin Gallery, Paris in 2014.

Conga Designer Bar

Conga Designer Bar

The Conga Bar is designed by Thomas Althaus and manufactured by Schönbuch, it was launched 2011. Finished in high-gloss in a huge range of lovely colors. The Conga series have grown since 2011, nowadays the Conga circular chest of drawers is also available. Less glamorous than a bar, but still pretty nice.

Dutch Design Week 2017 at the VDMA Garage

Dutch Design Week 2017 at the VDMA Garage

Mimi Blogger Team visited the VDMA Garage during the Dutch Designweek in Eindhoven. DDW can be visited until October 29th, 2017. The VDMA building can be roughly divided into 2 parts; left and right. This post is about the work exhibited on the right end of the venue.

In the world of Dutch Design there is this complex way of presenting. Almost every designer works with more than one collective, organisation, experiment, project, brand, manufacturer, sponsor, curator and god knows what else, besides having their own toko, (that means shop in Bahasa) which is almost always named after themselves, adding the word ‘studio’ either in front or after the designer’s given name.

If you’re not familiar with these kind of systems and, even more important; if you don’t know all the names by heart, you are often not quite sure what you’re watching. Seeing the same designers scattered allover the DDW can be confusing as well. We, at Mimi Berlin Blogger Team, don’t like that, so we did some research and came up with the following ‘main events’ situated at the VDMA building. Continue reading
