German airline Lufthansa takes us on a journey to the surreal volcanic landscape of Kagoshima in a new film inspired by “Heimweh”, a melancholic feeling of longing for a place. We follow the Inoue brothers, who grew up in Denmark but feel an innate connection to their parents’ homeland of Japan. Read more on NOWNESS – bit.ly/2deCs8n
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.

Soba reinterprets the traditional bamboo bench, an object still used in lots of places in Japan and which became such an almost invisible object, by adding a twist in its construction to allow it to be easily assembled.
A window into the lives of three characters whose professions supply the blood to Istanbul’s heartbeat. Seldom truly ‘seen’ we follow them in their daily lives to portray a more authentic and candid view of the city and its people.

A trio of powder professors ascend Alaska’s Chugach, rising above the desolate and rain-soaked primordial soup of lower elevations, and evolving upwards into the purple-hued peaks that tower above the clouds — a world of brilliant color and life. The mountains become the laboratory in which they embark upon extensive study and experimentation, in order to form theories on some of mankind’s oldest questions: how did life begin, and what makes this life worth living?

Short stay in Vienna. This is first part. Lazy weekend in Schonbrunn Palace. Wonderful place with a lot of air and light there. It makes you desperately hunt for inspiration and film. The source of inspiration may not be made of matter.

A Time-Laps film by Dots Obsession – Alive, Seeking for Eternal Hope is a special installation for a limited time, September 1 through 26, where Kusama has created an “infinity room” experience with the Glass House itself covered with polka dots. Visitors who attend the exhibition during this period will be offered the unique experience to simultaneously see the world through the eyes of both Philip Johnson and Yayoi Kusama. The Glass House’s window walls and doors allow the artist to create a one-of-a-kind signature “infinity room.” The polka dots directly engage the architecture of the Glass House, complementing its structure and aesthetics, breathing new life into the house. For Kusama, the polka dot represents an individual, its own universe. Similarly, Philip Johnson created his own private universe at the Glass House, sculpting every aspect of landscape experience into his own universe.

Living in San Francisco, Ethan felt the need to get out and confront himself to the mountains. Impressively brave and graceful, he scales the legendary Yosemite cliffs in California with his bare hands. Inherent in his conquest of new routes is a desire to reach a higher physical and spiritual level.
This year, the Serpentine Galleries in London celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Pavilion commission. Starting with Zaha Hadid as the architect of the first Serpentine Pavilion in 2000, many world-famous architects have created temporary structures in London’s Hyde Park, including Frank Gehry, 2008; Rem Koolhaas and Cecil Balmond, with Arup, 2006; Oscar Niemeyer, 2003; Daniel Libeskind with Arup, 2001; and Smiljan Radić, 2014. In 2015, Spanish architects selgascano (José Selgas and Lucía Cano) designed the 15th Serpentine Pavilion. The Pavilion is an amorphous, double-skinned, polygonal structure consisting of panels of a translucent, multi-colored fluorine-based polymer (ETFE) woven through and wrapped like webbing. The architects’ inspiration comes from the site itself, as well as from the ways in which people move through London, notably the Underground with its many-layered, chaotic yet structured flow.
Frank Gehry is one of the most renowned architects of our time. The Vitra Design Museum is dedicating an exhibition to him that shows large-scale models of his most famous buildings, such as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and IAC in New York.
