Description

The Moaré series owes its name to the iridescent effect created by the two outer cylinder-shaped shades, a watercolour optical illusion produced by the superimposed textures against the light. Created in 2003, it soon gained international renown and over the years the collection has come to comprise a range of colours and formats for a wide variety of uses: from major shopping centres to enclosed private household spaces. A ladylike interplay of colour and transparency.

The lamp allows the option to use just a single shade rather than the two required to produce the highly sought-after moiré effect, still retaining the grace of its excellently proportioned outer geometry. A methacrylate interior diffuser, next to the three central bulbs, constantly helps to diffuse its bright light.

CONTEMPORARY CHANDELIER / GLASS / BRASS / PORCELAIN CIRIO BY ANTONI AROLA

contemporary chandelier / glass / brass / porcelain

Characteristics

  • Style:

    contemporary

  • Material:

    glass, brass, porcelain

  • Light source:

    LED

  • Other characteristics:

    commercial

Description

The Cirio Chandelier pools a large body of light onto a focal axis that stands out hugely from its surrounding area. Its dense array of concentric rings, from which twenty, thirty and even forty light sources may be hung thanks to the enlargeable diameter of the structure, gives off a warm, powerful light with a major visual impact. Its design easily accommodates changing the shade to create different ambiences and arrangements from Sargadelos porcelain (lighting up with the warmth of an altar candle) to translucent opal glass or the opaque grace of brass.

“Fifth Ring” seeks to create a new dimension inside the courtyard of Milan’s 16th century Seminario Arcivescovile. A circular ring set inside a square courtyard, the installation demonstrates mankind’s continued search for perfection and acts as a fifth façade when viewed from above. When viewed from below, the illuminated circle frames the sky, acting as a “portal to a fifth dimension” in a move which seeks to open up a dialogue between the observer and the infinite universe.

“Altered States” sees a collaboration between leading quartz manufacturer Caesarstone and New York firm Snarkitecture, exploring the core theme of the kitchen island. Snarkitecture was inspired by the changing states of water in nature, through glaciers, rivers, and geysers, and in the kitchen, through ice, water, and steam. The installation consists of a central circular kitchen island, exhibiting the changing states of water through ice, liquid, and steam. Meanwhile, a surrounding “amphitheater” consists of over 250 Caesarstone and metal mesh pedestals, creating a white/grey gradient to emulate the appearance of a natural landscape.

“Open Sky” sees a grounded, physical ring of reflected sky placed in the courtyard of the 16th century Palazzo Isimbardi. The tactile yet abstract installation seeks to reframe the historic architecture of the courtyard with the enveloping beauty of the Milanese sky. As visitors move through the colonnade, the Palazzo’s form is distorted and reconfigured, while approaching the center of the installation sees a dynamic shift in focus towards the sky’s transient clouds and colors.

“Cells” investigates the relationship between technology, nature, and architecture in the hospital of tomorrow. Situated in the courtyard of the University of Milan’s Ca’ Granda, a former hospital founded in 1456, the installation explores the evolution of the world of healthcare by placing the visitor in an immersive, sensory experience. “Cells” consists of two glass structures, equal in size but with differing characteristics, placed at opposite corners of the courtyard to symbolize two perspectives on the future of healthcare.

The Ca’ Granda also plays host to “Future Space,” an installation consisting of a symmetrical structure inspired by the Renaissance proportions of the historic hospital. The project explores the potential for timber as a sustainable future material, investigating the spatial experience transmitted by wood. The installation is constructed of over 1600 wood sticks, creating a cave of three separate wings gradually changing in height. The perforated structure filters light, facilitating a “playful game of light and shadow.” The caves’ three openings serve as an entrance and two framed views across the university courtyard towards other installations.

“REVERSE ROOM” consists of an overturned black box, challenging the viewer’s reactions to a disruptive, abnormal spatial condition. The installation serves primarily as a vehicle for “The Light Bulb Series,” a collection of objects by James Wines which seeks to “blur the boundaries between art and design” using the light bulb as a subject. The installation includes five interpretations of the bulb; “Black Light” which inverts the functions and parts of the object, “Candle Light” which sees a merging of tungsten and flames into a new ambiguous object, “Melting Light” which consists of a bulb halfway between solid and liquid, “Plant Light” which shows a bulb overrun by nature, and “White Light” which sees a matrix of all exhibits.

German startup Containerwerk has designed “Microliving” and “Temporary Housing” to explore the possibilities of high-quality life in small space using purchased sea cargo containers. “Microliving” uses a single container to unite all essentials for comfortable living, through a marriage of technical sophistication and creativity. Meanwhile, “Temporary Housing” manifests as a two-container unit inviting visitors to question the growing fusion of professional and private life, and the efficient use of existing spaces.

eVolo Magazine has announced the winners of its 2018 Skyscraper Competition. Now in its 13th year, the annual award was established to recognize “visionary ideas for building [high-rise] projects that through [the] novel use of technology, materials, programs, aesthetics, and spatial organizations, challenge the way we understand vertical architecture and its relationship with the natural and built environments.”

This year, 3 winners and 27 honorable mentions were selected from a pool of 526 entries. Among this year’s winners are a foldable skyscraper inspired by origami, an urban building for rice farming, and a prototype for vertical housing in areas damaged by wildfires.

More and more natural disasters happen annually across the world. When dealing with forces so powerful, standard means of crisis-management often prove to be inefficient. Whether a certain region is struck by earthquake, flood or hurricane – help needs to arrive quickly. This is often easier to be said than done, as damages to transportation infrastructure or remote localization can make it extremely difficult.

The Skyshelter.zip tries to address these issues by proposing a structure that while offering large floor surface is compact, easy to transport anywhere and can be deployed with a minimum amount of time and manpower requirements. It is meant to serve as a multi-purpose hub for any relief operation.

The objective of this proposal is to restore the traditional interactions between Jinja (Japanese Shinto Shrine) and local people by reterritorializing a busy urban corner in Ginza, Tokyo with a vertically organized Jinja cum rice-farming complex.

In the past, Jinja and rice farming were the center of the Japanese economy. The paddy field and Jinja complex also served as centers of everyday interaction. Many local Jinja not only housed the relevant Kami (deities) but also served as a warehouse for harvests.  Also, the biggest communal festival, Matsuri, happened during spring seeding and autumn harvesting.

As cities expand, both rice farming and Jinja remains in the shadow of urban livings. Jinja complex is overshadowed by modern skyscrapers. However, more than two centuries ago, according to some ancient manuscripts, Izumo Shrine was said to be reaching 96m high above ground i.e. a historical origin of skyscraping Jinja. On the other hand, recent development in hydroponic farming technology makes vertical rice farming possible. The pitched roof of a Jinja can be converted to a stepped paddy field, which conforms to the traditional idea of using organic roofing material in Jinja construction.

Forest fires are one of the greatest agents of degradation of ecosystems in the world. Although fire is part of the natural dynamics of some habitats, large disturbances cause a deterioration of their functionalities. Fire modifies biogeochemical cycles, produces changes in vegetation, soil, fauna, hydrological and geomorphological processes, water quality and even changes in the composition of the atmosphere. Each of these elements puts at risk not only the existing geography but also directly threatens population centers, putting at risk the lives of people, their goods, infrastructure, among other things.

The proposal looks for a new way of inhabiting the territory, through a system of buildings at height, avoiding the effects of the old settlement model. The objective is to face the reconstruction from a new perspective, recover the lost housing and infrastructure, added to a restoration of the flora and biodiversity, through a system that prevents and mitigates future catastrophes, through a renovating process that allows coexisting with the geography and the territory.
