This week on #DVloves i’s all about a futuristic combination and an unusual selection starting with Dreams Cabinet designed by Cristian Zuzunaga for BD Barcelona Design with a printed pixelated pattern. Playing on Kelly Wearstler’s love for geometric shapes, the Tephra Totem Sculpture hand-carved by Los Angeles artisans is combined with the geometrical pixeled cabinet. Adding to the mood Miroir Réaction by Hervé Van Der Straeten, a stunning geometrical 3d mirror made from lacquered wood and gold leaf with a pure volume and bold variations combined with perfect proportions. The full mood is dominated by the arthropod lighting from Lebanese designer Ghassan Salameh, a versatile lighting fixture out of the ordinary.
Dreams Cabinet designed by Cristian Zuzunaga for BD Barcelona Design is a sideboard with containers, front panels and drawers are made in varied thicknesses of MDF and lacquered in black matt. The external top, front and lateral panels are made of printed tempered glass. The legs are in solid ash wood. The internal drawers include guides with full extraction braking systems.
The Arthropod Line – Distinguished by their exoskeleton and jointed, high-mobility limbs, arthropods are one of the most omnipresent groups of living organisms on the planet. Remarkably, the enormous variety of eye designs and light-capturing mechanisms found in various arthropod species alludes to the extent to which nature has innately attempted to develop solutions for helping its fellows in overcoming their visual limitations… Thus comes the inspiration for this line of steel fixtures, focusing most of all on versatility in favor of the general, specific, or exceptional mood in any given space. The fixtures are made out of raw iron, gold brass, red copper and polished stainless steel attached together by multi-directional hand-milled hinges all along the axles. Each joint rotates in 4 different angles allowing the user to direct and redirect the lighting according to the space’s need.

Van der Straeten’s furniture and lighting are instantly recognizable from the way that contrasting materials, bold variations of form, defiant volumes are pure, elegant lines are combined with perfect proportions. The great precision and meticulous attention to detail with how the pieces are made, are also clearly tangible.
