Megalith Table by Duffy London

Megalith Table by Duffy London

    Christopher Duffy was born in east London, and founded his studio there in 2002, after studying Product Design at University of Brighton. He now heads up a design company that has furnished thousands of everyday homes - as well as Google, Media studios and Royal Palaces - with imaginative furniture that has whimsy as its hallmark, and quality and craftsmanship as its foundation.

  His acclaimed designs have included the UP table (2010), the Shadow Chair (2008) and the Glo Canvas (2002) - instantly recognisable pieces that have become icons of fantastical modern design. All are hand-made in the UK, and while each piece looks as if it's held together by magic, a lot of quiet engineering and meticulous construction underpins the wizardry. Duffy lives by the Thames, and dreams up his ideas in a flat just about big enough for one of his smallest designs.

  Duffy London's designs are ideas-based, combining art and function and playing with the concepts of gravity, geometry and illusion. The innovative and quirky designs spring from the mind of Chris, however, he also draws on his talented designers and manufacturers to turn these concepts into quality products.

  Boasting strong eco-credentials, everything is handmade to order by skilled craftspeople in the UK, using sustainable wood and other eco-friendly materials and mediums. Duffy London is used to being in the spotlight of the press, having appeared in top interior design magazines, and you may have even seen his Glo-Canvases featured in the backdrop of several TV programmes.

Megalith Table by Duffy London

  This monolithic design takes its inspiration from The Sentinel, a book by Arthur C. Clarke that went on to be made into the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, directed by Stanley Kubrick.  A glass table top seems to balance miraculously on top of toppling monoliths, which appear to be frozen in a permanent state of impending collapse. This mind-boggling creation appears to the naked eye to be an impossible feat, but in reality it has its foundations in real physics.

Vasava, Experimenting with Design

Adobe Summit 2014 by Vasava Studio 

  The main emotion that drives Vasava is boredom. Boredom with the ordinary. The run of the mill. The “just OK.”  Vasava hate that stuff. They like to run riots with ideas, trample conventions and turn upside down what's already upside down.

  Here’s the evidence. First, their name. Type it into Google and you get the agency first. Then you get an Indian deity, also known as Indra. Vasava liked the name’s sonority – the way you can’t quite write it backwards. Some even claim that Vasava are the deities of design – but the agency is far too modest to comment.

Raw Juice - Just Blaze by Vasava Studio 

  In 1997 there were just two of them: Bruno and his dad Toni. When Enric joined a few years later, he became the third member of a dynamic trio. Hence their logo, an inverted triangle with a never-ending Escher quality: an impossible logo for a trio who thrive on the unreasonable.

  Vasava was part of a new wave of independent studios that popped up during the 1990s. They still feel squeaky new, even though they’ve grown in size and experience. In fact Vasava has become a kind of school: the Hogwarts of communications wizardry. Its “alumni” populate other well-known studios, always with a nod of thanks to the mother agency.

  Today, 17 people work at Vasava, and everything is done in-house. They don’t outsource. From design to illustration to video to animation, it’s all home made. And if they don’t know how to do something, they’ll teach themselves. One of Vasava’s unwritten rules is “learn like kids.” They love exploring. They love to get messy. You’ll often find them covered in ink, paint and glue.

  Their commercial success is largely due to this need to experiment, at work and at home. Their personal design and art projects have been shown in books and exhibitions around the world. They’ve spoken at events in Los Angeles and Stockholm, Beijing and Buenos Aires, and just about everywhere in between.

 Their approach has earned them the loyalty and respect of clients such as Nike, Hennessy, Adobe,etc.  They design not only for big companies, but for the sake of art and for family and friends.  But above all, they design because they can’t stop. It’s what they do. It’s who they are. For Vasava, every project is important, and every process is a playground. Any other approach would simply be too…well, boring.

Creative Manipulation by Anil Saxena

Painting the Road by Anil Saxena

  Anil Saxena started out doing conventional darkroom photo composition and retouching before moving these skills over to creator and then photoshop. Having moved to Mumbai to work as an illustrator he became interested in retouching as a way to utilize his eye for creating striking imagery. Drawing from his technical background in graphic design, CGI and his trained creative eye, Anil enjoys developing stunning imagery. He believes color grading is paramount. For him real work begins, when the rest of the people might think that the image is just perfect! In his own words:

If the image is a success but my work goes unnoticed, I'm doing my job well."

Lemons Bucket, Reality or Render?

Wet City by Lemons Bucket

  Lemons Bucket is a studio formed by 2 architects, a graphic designer and an administrator with experience in housing promotion.  They all coincided in a master about infoarchitecture and decided to continue together once they finished their master since they realised that together they made a great team.

  Infoarchitecture allows the visualisation of the designed spaces exactly as the architect imagines them.   In Lemons Bucket they make renders in a hyper-realist quality, capturing the essence of the design and recreating the architecture in 3D with the sensitivity that it deserves. 

  Before they start the images production they have a phase in which they gather together with the clients and talk about the type of images they need, knowing their project, the aesthetic which fits better, the scenery, the materials, etc. 

  After the meeting with the client, they make a more technical meeting between them in which they plan how they are going to get the images, what techniques they're going to use and they coordinate the time.

  They tell us how they do it: 

"Once we clear up all the organization we get to work with the images, in each project the process may vary a little, but in broad strokes they would be the following:

1_In the first phase we create a scene and furniture model.  We apply a base material, a previous lighting and with the client's help, we choose a point of view at the clients taste. 

2_The second phase is longer.  We create the materials, defining their tones, brightness, roughness, etc. of each of them.  We adjust the final lighting according to the new materials.  At this point, it's very important the communication with the client, everything has to be well defined in order to procede with a good quality image rendering (a process which takes various hours).

3_Once fulfilled the 3D work and renderizing the image, we get to the final phase, the post-production.  In this phase the image ends up aquiring the personality and the desired atmosphere.

A New Insulin Delivery Device



  Krystalin is a futuristic insulin delivery concept. The concept is one of the 10 winners for ignite diabetes challenge sponsored by SANOFI. Their challenge was to design a concept for the next generation disposable delivery device for insulin. The design was concentrated in identifying what are the major problems a diabetic patient faces in the current insulin dispensing device. Fear of needle, difficulty in self-administration, tracking of dosage and difficulty in operating are few of the problems they have identified. The latest tech was also identified and envisioned along.
  Krystalin uses an array of crystal insulin which are grown into micro needles of size 450-550 microns over thin films. These non-invasive insulin patches (size 1cm x 1cm, equivalent to 10 units of insulin) are pain free and comparable to the mosquitoes needle sizes and can be used by both type1 and type2 diabetes. Once this patch is applied on to the skin, the crystal shaped insulin crystal gets dissolved and immediate effect occurs to the patient at subcutaneous level. The patch after being dissolved, the needles become blunt and can be disposed as it is no longer a bio waste.
  The case in which these patches are packed can measure the Diabetes glucose level non-invasively. This is done with the help of short range spectroscopy of glucose molecules present in the blood. This is useful in suggesting the patient about the dosage to be taken. 
  The device is robust and is easy to carry and has storage unit which is helpful when on travel. E-ink based display is used to add reminders and display glucose levels. It is an accessory more than a medical device. Kystalin is a concept which helps all ages, kids and old aged to operate it easily with no fear and pain.

Arjun Raj Kumar S, Sushant Rajendra Darake and Tawfik Manham are doing their Post-Graduation in product design from National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad.

Vive Estudio Design the Inside

Marino by Vive Estudio

  Vive Estudio is an interior design studio in Barcelona which arises from a simple idea: to create existing spaces, charming and above all welcoming. The studio is distinguished by the professionalism with which they carry out all their projects, but also by the value for money.
In Vive we are an experienced team which has undertaken several projects ranging from interior design,  integral housing reforms and lighting projects for commercial offices, special paint finishes for the carpentry and joinery. 
They count on their own style which is reflected on each project they participate in.

Marino by Vive Estudio 


  This is one of the last projects in which Vive Estudio has participated in.  It's about the design and remodeling of a fashion shop in the street Travessera de Gràcia 127 in Barcelona.  In this project they tried to provide the greatist functionality and giving it a sense of clear space. 

  The objective of this remodeling was to obtain a denim/young space in which it wouldn't be too cold.  With this purpose they've used two materials which are iron and wood which help them offer a warm image without loosing the young style that the atmosphere required. 
  Another basic point in the remodeling was the need to give a bigger sense of amplitude for the store, for which they covered the wood with a white patina and designed a new counter and re-designed the main poster. 
  The lighting was also a very important part in the remodeling in order to get the ambience which they were looking for, in this reform they installed rails in the ceiling and used dowlights in the fitting rooms area in order to increase the warm sense.
