Great to see the first images of the finished prototype. Since fingerprints are too visible on the semi-gloss black finish we will try anOther version with very matt black paint. We are trying to achieve the black matte finish that is seen recently on some luxury or sports cars. Does anyone know a supplier for this?
Today we received images from Russia of the manufacturing process of the Hedronics prototypes. We are using laser-cut steel sheets which are folded manually in order to keep the material image of the original 1:1 mock-ups which were made out of cardboard.
The final prototype will look like a scaled up paper model. Maybe we could promote the chair distributing cut-out designs so people can make their own miniature design?
Finally after a long design process our Hedronic chair concept will be manufactured.
After finalizing the first cardboard 1:1 mock up models we will manufacture a first metal prototype together with NAYADA in Moscow. Based on a simple polyhedronthis design is relatively simple to manufacture since all triangles are the same within the solid.
The chair prototypes will be presented at the Moscow Design Week in September.
We will launch a new furniture concept at Milan Design Week 2010 (Salone Internazionale del Mobile). The low table will consists of smaller elements which can spread into the whole flat and form seating elements, shelfs and other configurations.
The table is produced for HIDN collection by LAROCHE.
This product is a reminder of both the foundations of Tate´s collection by the famous sugar merchant Sir Henry Tate and the traditional afternoon tea ceremony. The sugar cubes come in different shapes memorizing the iconic architectures of Tate museum buildings. Each sugar cube shape comes in pure white and coloured black option as a reference to English white tea (with milk and sugar) and the original black tea.
Tate Modern is the light version of this souvenir in form of coloured sweetener pills in a stylish dispenser.
Another sugar cube version could recall Rachel Whiteread´s famous Embankment installation at Tate Modern.

Rather surprisingly this table by ‘Another Architect’ is representative of Cario’s noise. This work is created from various recorded sounds from a range of locations in Cairo. The bottom of the table is contoured in the negatives of the top of the table base. Thus, it only function by the combination of the two. Look at the ripple above! now I realized what a noisy city Cairo is.
