Functional and beautiful radiators design

Ladder-shaped scaletta radiator by Elisa Giovannoni

     What is your idea about how does a heater look like?

     For sure we may think is just something functional that makes our lives easier, more confortable and warmer when cold is way too much outside... so this is exactly what scaletta is... just with the diference that appearance is very important as well. we just don´t see a radiator but a great design piece, a good idea, soft to be seen and fitting in a natural way without visually disturbing but catching attention in a perfect way...
and is it not what good design means? 

     Functional, simple and beautiful all at the same time is able to let us set our towels, our blanquets or any cloth to get dry or just warmer, we can take it from one room to another and the electric cord winds on a pulley - giving the ladder a tidier and a bit of an industrial look and having the option of wall-mounted or free standing versions - and the free standing can be fitted with a shelf.

     Designed by the Italian company, Tubes Radiatori, This electric towel warmer comes in two versions: wall and freestanding on the floor, both with a pulley that rewinds the electric cable. Not requiring any special installation, Scaletta can easily be moved to a different part of the home and even taken with you when you move house.

     Would n´t you love to have one like this?
I would!!

A different bathroom design

Plasticity + design 

     When plasticity and design meet each other are able to create special pieces like this one. Context looks like carefully studied and creativity joined together. Breaking the rules and thinking again looks like a perfect combination for a, at least, really interesting design result.


     Born in 1979 in Osaka, Japan. He studied product design at the Kanazawa College of Art from 1998 to 2002. He then worked for Sharp Corporation in Japan as a designer for consumer electronic products until 2007. After transferring to Italy, he graduated from the Domus Academy, Master in Interior and Living Design course. From 2008 to 2012, he worked for the Studio Urquiola in Milan as an assistant designer of product design for Patricia Urquiola. He then started his own design studio from October 2012 in Kyoto, Japan. He currently works with some international clients.



     The contemporary tiles industry is erasing the boundaries between natural and industrial, raw andprocessed materials.Nowadays is virtually possible to simulate the appearance and texture of any material in ceramic.Like Cotto’s Marmo granito tile, which gives you the feeling of a natural stone. Tile sashi (slice inJapanese) is a collection of bathroom furniture inspired by the act of slicing a raw material in order to build something new.By slicing the tiles in thin strips we are able to give a three-dimensional configuration to a fl atmaterial, making it become part of the surface of the furniture and, in this way, mimetizing it with thebathroom architecture. In order to give a softer appeal to the tiles, pastel colour is used in the junctions and other natural materials such as red clay and cork are mixed. 
I hope you enjoy. If you like Fukusada you can check his website here:

The most amazing tableware

Art or tableware? by Dietlind Wolf

    Today my intention was to talk about tablewares with some special touch and because of that I wanted to share with you a selection of all the designers that I really love...
    But just started with that and realized I will do it another day as one of the designers I wanted to talk about is Dietlind Wolf and she has so many nice things that I can actually write a whole post about her today.

    "Visual multi-disciplinary designer, propstylist and photographer, living in hamburg Germany, colourconcepts + styling for editorial food productions, on own devising creating shooting and styling still life deco + flower themes. ceramics at, inspired by never ending curiosity and ancient customs/ art/techniques and life itself." She says about herself.

    She started designing porcelain as she needed some plates for her photography food sesions. She mixed loads of talent and soul and she got a refined, fresh, crafty and artistic work inspired by the ceramist Christiane Perrochon.

    You can buy Dietlind´s ceramics at abc home and im pallais XIII.

Enjoy it!

¿Menaje o arte? by Dietlind Wolf

     Mi intención con esta entrada era la de enseñaos vajillas, cuberterías, juegos de té, tazas... etc que tuvieran algo muy especial, un toque de ese algo que las hiciera únicas y, para ello, pretendía haceos una selección recopilatoria de lo que a mí me hace morirme de ganas por tener en mi poder entre todo lo que conozco que hay en el mercado...
    Pero, nada más empezar, he decidido que ya dejaré esta selección de las cosas más bonitas del mundo en menaje para otro momento, que Dietlind Wolf (una de las diseñadoras de las que quería hablaros) tiene ella sola para más de un post y ya os enseñaré los demás otro día.

    Dietlind Wolf es alemana y vive en Hamburgo, se define a sí misma como diseñadora visual multidisciplinar y la verdad es que razón no le falta. Fotógrafa, estilista, diseñadora e ilustradora confiera que comenzó a diseñar vajillas de porcelana porque necesitaba platos para sus sesiones fotográficas de comida. Para ponerse manos a la obra le puso mucho alma y talento y dio lugar a una refinada a la vez que fresca, artesanal y artística obra inspirada por la francesa Christiane Perrochon.

    Puedes adquirir las cerámicas de Dietlind en abc home y im Pallais XIII.

¡Disfrutad y que aproveche!

And she does not only create tableware...

Did you like it? I simply love it.
Have a nice day.
