Re-creation: 4 New Design Interpretations all over the World

Design trends are changing worldwide. So what are the new design approaches and forms? It is time to read our article.

Global design trends are continuously changing. While new products and models are being introduced, very recent approaches or forms are added to the current designs that have been familiar for a while. Our article, this month, welcomes this enjoyable journey towards special designs. While we are looking over the brand new products on home design and table decorations, we will also explore the latest ones with different users or for varying purposes. Let’s check the current status of decoration styles in housing spaces and industrial designs.

Nendo Signature in Cutlery and Silverware Collections

The first design is from Belgium. Valerie Objects, a collective design brand is in successful cooperation with another world-famous decoration brand called Nendo. This cutlery, flatware, and silverware set among the indispensable pieces of dining table decorations are totally distinct from the ones you are familiar with.

This sculpture-like dining table collection is the designer’s signature for the minimalist and modern style underlining his home design products. Thanks to their statue-like positions, each piece of this new collection is pronounced to be a ¨skeleton¨ which can be used as if hanged on the plates, small bowls, and napkins.

In this collection, there are not only sets of tablespoons but also a set of four ¨skeleton¨ teaspoons. Nendo’s designer Oki Sato emphasizes this minimalist arrangement in the collection which owes its name to the similarity of the piece forms to the human skeleton. Representing tactfulness and elegance, the collection is made of two different material types: Stainless steel and a PVD coating.

New Decoration in the Habitats of Bees

“All living creatures must have a home.” This motto belongs to MaliArts. The Mexican designing community has added up a fresh perspective to the world’s designing area. This designer’s guru draws attention to the ¨Refugio¨ model which acknowledges bees that try to survive on the same earth with us.

“Apart from others, bees we meet or unnoticed in nature are excluded. For instance, they do not have a queen bee or are not able to produce honey. Contrary to the popular myth, there are non-stinging and impassive bees as well. This kind of bees produce just pollens and we include them to our habitat through this particular design.”

Refugio, the habitat of bees, is a specific alternative for their nourishment and shelter. The bee house is made of pine trees and teakwood. It is created by the combination of three various materials with ceramic details on the roof. The bee house concept is perfectly completed by enameled serving dishes.

The Fun of Coffee Making with an Iconic Design

We would like to tell about a model, which you possibly don’t know but sure to have eye contact before. ¨Moka Express¨, which can be accepted as a coffee brewing pot or a manual coffee machine, has already evolved in design. It was born in Italy during World War II and belonged to Alessi’s founders’ family. Being generated in 1931, Mocha Express wasn’t so popular in those days until it became a phenomenon after being globalized.

Capturing the hearts also by its decorative style, Moka Express has been revived by British Architect David Chipperfield. He has recently launched Alfonso Bialetti’s iconic design as ¨Moka¨. Its lighter, plainer and more minimalist style in this renewal seems to create a tremendous impression as much as the earlier one.

This modern world representation is launched to the market in three different sizes – large, medium and small. Opening to the international arena at Maison&Objet Trade Fair, this new product drew high attention at Salone del Mobile. Now, it’s time to be hosted by house kitchens.

To Review a Legend with Typing Fonts

Whatever is your profession, you type this font: Helvetica. In fact, it is considered a legend in its field. Created by Swiss designer Max Miedinger, Helvetica typing font came into our lives in 1957. It adapted itself into the digital world with the latest modifications in 1983.

After so many years, this font has become the most preferred typing style. It is mentioned more often nowadays, due to the re-designed form. It is named ¨Helvetica Now¨. After 35 years in its history, the font has been exposed to a busy journey in design.

Helvetica Now is a result of a two-year-study with the world’s oldest typography enterprise while being concluded by full collaboration between designers and engineers. The font has been introduced in their different sizes after all font characters being precisely modified. Now, every three alternatives are ready for use - the smallest for mobile devices, the medium for printed publications and the largest for widescreen displays.
