Pool / Fountain by Reto Zimmermann for Herzog family. In addition to the charming and over-fetishized oak clad apartment building by HdM, a beautiful long exposed concrete pool was built in the idyllic courtyard. The pool with its unique edge is used for swimming in the summer and as a fountain in the winter.
What was not mentioned in Vogue‘s "73 Questions“ interview. @axelvervoordt and @claudiosilvestrin created one of the most powerful spaces in their oeuvre; the bathroom of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West. Striking is the central role of the original R31 Canvas Fauteuil, designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1936 and produced by Metz & Co, until they sold the copyrights to @cassinaofficial . Rietveld would never have imagined that his design would end up in a bathroom in Hidden Hills. The first photographs of the chairs from 1937, shows a minimalistic apartment with a painting from Charles Eyck. Rumour has it that Axel Vervoordt advised the couple to be seated on the canvas chairs in Spartanic spirit; naked. Copyright photos: Jaap d’Oliveira

Beyeler = Art = Mayonnaise One, co-founder of Art Basel and preeminently one of the most successful art dealers / collectors of postwar Europe. The second, a postwar pioneer of the industrial production of mayonnaise. Since then, the two entities that surpassed their founders are still evolving and expanding. Beyeler AG will move in 2019 into a new factory of 12’000m2 and Fondation Beyeler is securing funds for a ‘House of Art’ of 1’500m2 designed by Atelier Peter Zumthor. Enjoy the best of both worlds in @fondationbeyeler ‘s cafe/restaurant or @artbasel Collectors Lounge.

Opening of the Western Gas Factory’s big gas tank in 1903. The gas holder had a retractable roof that increased according to the amount of gas in it. In 2003 the former gasworks have been transformed into a cultural park.©️Stadsarchief Amsterdam
スウェットショップ - "The Form of Knowledge" by Japanese architect @ryuji fujimura is a fascinating exhibition/research which presents a creative relationship between knowledge and form. Chair designs are based on images of chairs collected by using Google image search through several languages. The designs are an integration of the top three chair typologies of a certain language. The Global G chair is generated by morphing the top chair typologies of the nine most spoken languages. Design and Fabrication: Fujimura Laboratory, Toyo University Team: Koyohei Sakamoto, Tatsunobo Tomokuni, Shun Nishimura, Kenta Uchiumi, Sho Takeyama, Masaru Nakano, Ryo Fukui Picture credits by @akiosegawa @bintarodesigndistrict @maena t @ryuji fujimura
