Ruutu, which means diamond or square in Finnish, is a collection of 10 vases available in five sizes and seven colours. When collected and combined, they make small seamless installations where both the strength and the delicate nature of the glass come alive.
The fluidity and vibrant feel of the mouth blown glass creates the delicate character for Ruutu.
Ruutu in stores in January 2015.

“The first time I got dressed elegantly was for the wedding of my parents when I was 7 years old. I was very touched by the party, the champagne, the outfits, the mood… I had been looking forward to enjoying it as well ! In love with an angel, tonight is a celebration of what we all appreciate the most in the world : free love. This feeling I do my best to feed all the time motivated me to create a collection around the theme of a wedding. More comfortable in the creation and technically, this eleventh collection is an interpretation of how I see my witnesses. I wish you all a good time.
We’re in heaven,

On the run up to the Stirling Prize, 2016, The Architect’s Journal takes a look into the six nominated buildings, with interviews from the architects.
This private gallery in Vauxhall has involved the conversion of an extraordinary terrace of listed industrial buildings, that were formerly theatre carpentry and scenery painting workshops. The gallery forms the whole length of the street, with the three listed Victorian buildings flanked at either end by new buildings. The ground and upper floors within the five buildings are continuous, allowing them to be used flexibly in many combinations, to accommodate both large and small exhibitions. There are 3 large galleries on each of the two floors, stretching in a line from one end of the building to the other. The two gallery levels are connected by new spiral staircases and a large lift.
Along Newport Street and facing to the railway, the unusual proportions of the Victorian workshops, with their groups of low level windows and high blank walls above, have been continued in the design of the new buildings. The new facades are made with a hard pale red brick that closely matches the surface of the listed buildings. The five buildings next to each other, all different but obviously related, make a sheer and impressive street elevation.
The scheme includes a restaurant and administrative offices for the gallery. The building shows exhibitions of the client’s extensive collection of contemporary art, and is open to the public for free.
Bucharest Rising is a timelapse film set in the bustling capital city of Romania. The goal of this project is to promote city’s attractions and to show its diversity and its recent development.
In the period between the two World Wars, the city’s elegant architecture earned Bucharest the nickname of “Little Paris”. Unfortunately many buildings from the historical center were destroyed by 1977 earthquake and Ceausescu’s program of systematization. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom and today, Bucharest is an interesting mix of neoclassical, communist era and modern architectures.
The locations that appear in this film are concentrated in the center, old town and the northern part of the city. You can see beautiful parks (Cismigiu, Herastrau and Carol), communist era buildings (Parliament Palace and the House of Free Press), historic buildings (the Romanian Atheneum, CEC Palace) and modern structures (Basarab Overpass, City Gate, Sky Tower).
The camera used for this project was a Nikon D7200 paired with a Nikkor 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6 and a Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6. Polarizers, gradual NDs, variable NDs and fixed NDs filters (up to ND1000) were used to increase the exposure time and to handle high contrast scenes. Almost 15,000 photos were captured in raw format and post-processed to retain all the tones in the image.

Much has been made about the wonders of Venice, but few ever venture deep enough across its less touristy, yet still historical hidden places. Beyond hundreds of canals and a diverse architectural style, a secret facet of Venetian life lives on, in which the journey of hand crafting gondola wooden oars and loomed fabrics remains rooted in ancient folk traditions.
This short film uncovers the secrets that have been handed down from father to son and projects you to the Venice that existed 500 years ago, immersing you in the extraordinary craftsmen’s veiled workshops that belong to a long lost era.
I have received so many messages asking for details on how I produce my videos.
I put down this short piece: oliver.as/videotips this explains few techniques I have been using and includes a list of equipment. Don’t hesitate to write to me if you need further details or have any recommendation.
This project has been produced in partnership with René Caovilla, the master Venetian shoemaker who has overwhelmed the world with his creations.
This video is a homage to the city of Venice on behalf of René Caovilla – renecaovilla.com

New York can easily live up to its movie-star good looks but it can be a city that surprises, too. Monocle has had a bureau in New York since its launch in 2007 and this has made us passionate about this city and its ambitions. The Monocle Travel Guide to New York, published by Gestalten, is a celebration of all that we love about the city. It is available now at The Monocle Shop: www.monocle.com/shop/books-and-music/travel-guides/
For The Forecast we journeyed through Antwerp sampling the best in business, art, food and design that the historic Belgium city has to offer. The Flemish-speaking outpost may have had its golden age in the 16th century but we believe it’s having a renaissance. Here’s a preview of what to look forward to in our new Antwerp City Survey.

The hidden world of space junk.
Adrift is a short documentary that explores the hidden world of space junk. The film reveals an issue that is troubling and beautiful, dangerous and fascinating. It begins with the tale of astronaut Piers Sellers, who dropped his spatula in space in 2006, which became the most deadly kitchen instrument soon after, travelling at 27,000 km/h. The film then journeys across the remote deserts of Chile with astronomers of Collowara Observatory, into the skies, where threats to the International Space Station take place, and through to Thailand, where a man watches space debris burn. The film includes a narration by Vanguard, the oldest piece of space junk, voiced by Sally Potter (Dir Orlando).

In central Arizona there exists an experimental town called Arcosanti. It’s built on the principles of arcology, which combines architecture and ecology to envision a city that works in tandem with the Earth’s resources. In this short documentary, The Atlantic goes inside this distinctive urban space to understand how Arcosanti plans to reconstruct how humans envision cities.

Shot with Lumix GH2, Gorillapod, 14-140mm and 7-14mm Lumix Lenses. Edited with Final Cut Pro. Postproduction with After Effects.
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Since so many asked for more information: The sunsets/sunrises were shot with an intervalometer at 10 sec (the Balloons in the intro were at 1 or 2 sec) Most of the other stuff was shot in regular video HBR mode and later sped up in post to whatever speed needed.
The effect was created manually in AE and so were many masks. Quite a lot of shots were handheld, since I travelled without tripod, so they were also stabilzed in AE later.
