The table lamp “PROSPETTIVA” designed by Alessio Angiolini Architect Lab shows his elegance and modernity through the use of anodized aluminum polished for structure and translucent polycarbonate for optics. The thickness of 7.5cm makes it comfortable to grip and versatile as to steer. From the double symmetric switch block you can choose whether to use the flow of light on the side measuring 45cm or 28cm to, allowing you to connect the power according to the chosen position or even using the battery integrated in the lamp.

A revolutionary concept of church was designed by a collaboration between Pieterjan Gijs and Arnout Van Vaerenberg. Their creation consists of a see-through church and takes part of a major ambitious long-term art in public spaces. The project will be realized on different locations in the Flemish region of Limburg over the next five years. This unusual construction is 10 meter high and is made of 100 layers and 2000 columns of steel, which is perceived in different ways, depending on the viewer position. This church can look like a genuine massive building that seems to dissolve partially or entirely in the landscape. Its name is “ Reading between the lines”.
Smiljan Radić is the fourteenth architect to accept the invitation to design a temporary Pavilion outside the entrance to the Serpentine Gallery in Kensington Gardens. His design follows Sou Fujimoto’s cloud-like structure which was visited by almost 200,000 people in 2013 and was one of the most visited Pavilions to-date. Occupying a footprint of some 514 square metres on the lawn of the Serpentine Gallery, plans depict a semi-translucent, cylindrical structure of fibreglass, designed to resemble a shell, which rests on large quarry stones. This work has its roots in the architect’s earlier work, particularly The Castle of the Selfish Giant, inspired by the Oscar Wilde story and the Restaurant Mestizo – part of which is supported by large boulders. The 2014 Pavilion is designed as a flexible, multi-purpose social space with a café sited inside. Visitors will be encouraged to enter and interact with the Pavilion in different ways throughout its four month tenure in the Park.
The Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 is designed by multi award-winning Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto.
He is the thirteenth and, at 41, youngest architect to accept the invitation to design a temporary structure for the Serpentine Gallery. The most ambitious architectural programme of its kind worldwide, the Serpentine’s annual Pavilion commission is one of the most anticipated events on the cultural calendar. Past Pavilions have included designs by Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei (2012), Frank Gehry (2008), the late Oscar Niemeyer (2003) and Zaha Hadid, who designed the inaugural structure in 2000.
In one of his most ambitious suspended installations to date, artist Tomás Saraceno (previously) launches visitors at the K21 Staendehaus museum in Düsseldorf more than 65 feet (20 meters) above the main piazza with a taunt, multi-level web of netting.Titled In Orbit the giant interactive piece is constructed from three separate levels of safety nets accessible from various points in the museum separated by enormous PVC balls measuring almost 30 feet (8.5 meters) in diameter.
Belgian designer and engineer Carl de Smet is experimenting with a kind of smart foam technology, which he believes could do just that.
Once heated to a set temperature, the material he works with, shape memory polyurethane (SMPU), will expand to a given design.
