Wonderful and unique fabric of wood was created and patented by Italian design firm MammaFotogramma. The name of the fantastic surface is a Woodskin that reflects the ability of material to show the dual nature. It looks like a wood and it is a wood, but at the same time it is flexible and can be molded into almost any intricate shape. The manufacture involves ‘the process of excavation with a CNC cutting machine’. As a result we can see a composite mesh of small triangles. The advantage of using the Woodskin is great and most significant is the use in furniture and interior design.

This interesting construction was designed and created by New York-based Chinese artist Nova Jiang. It consists of modular elements with rotating planters controlled by a software program that continuously generates new maze patterns. Full construction consists of particles of broken glass, plastic and other detritus; the planters contain live moss collected from the sides of buildings, cracks in the pavement and so on. As the author says, ’they form a patchwork of unintentional archaeology’. The rotation makes people to change direction by going through the space where the maze is installed. This sculpture is not just decoration or mere classical labyrinth, Jiang positions her work as an object of literary creativity or mathematical beauty.
This sculpture, quite useless at first sight, has very deep sense. People in their usual life make everything without any sense and not enjoying the process. Kinetic maze develops in people clarity of mind by making people stop and think.

We have recently reviewed this modern cottage that looks quite cold mostly because of it’s gray polished concrete floors. Now lets see how we can decorate such concrete floor to make it friendly and actually integrate and bring some complexity to your interior. The first and the most obvious thing you can do with your concrete floor is paint it! This home on the pictures below is made of concrete, but look at how fun and cozy it looks. Another option is to use smooth shapes or lets say floral stamps to make it warmer. The only bad thing about concrete is that often it still tends to be cold like a stone, unless if you live in a warm geography.
