Award-winning, Mexico City-based industrial designer, Victor M. Aleman, focuses on aligning the bond between complex digital design and skilled Mexican craftsmanship. Indicative of this creative output from his self-founded Victor Aleman/Estudio is Loopita; a continuous seating curve for two, handcrafted from conserved start to surface finish. Master joinery and force of compression bind the sections together, leaving you with a strikingly singular indoor/outdoor seating unit.

Photographer and cephalopod-centric chandelier maker, Adam Wallacavage, has, in part, made a tentative tentacle departure for his current exhibition, now showing at the Corey Helford Gallery, Culver City. Dreamhome Heartaches sees the addition of handcrafted, antler-crowned elk skull chandelier, formed with customary epoxy clay/cast plaster joining the ranks of the octopus optics. His signature glaze of secret components ensure this inanimate animal retains a shiny coat.
The exhibition is showing from March the 19th – April the 6th.
And so it was, as I delved into the Wonderful World of Mr. Wallacavage, that I came across these two tasty treats from his blog, explanatorily subtitled “My photography and random things I like and stuff.”

This is an excerpt from “The Musee Mecanique presents the Zelinsky Collection” DVD that I made in 2002. It’s available at museemecaniquesf.com and Pier45 or The Cliff House – Mr. Newkirk.
And now this:
I don’t know what this is about anymore. I suppose when I feel this way, it’s best to look at something pointless..yet saturated…funny. This is the photo I thought of when I thought “over saturated.” I shot this in my dining room… – Mr. Wallacavage.

By Jean-Marie Massaud for Glas Italia, the I-Beam collection comprises companion pieces consisting of a low bench, table and chaise longue structured by high-resistance glue and thick, tempered glass. Extending Studio Massaud’s reach into promoting the relationship between design and brand development, I-Beam’s complimentary smoked glass elements prove this material can be as functional as it is visual. Black fabric removable cushions soften the seating formations.

Hit a wall with environmental boredom? Then the answer, according to interior designer Amirkhan Abdurakhmanov, is simple – Change It. For freedom of expression, you need to get in the prism system, whereby millions of possible combinations are fingertip-ready to express your mood or work with interior changes. Though this flexibly emotive design is currently at concept stage, it will be in production soon.
