ARNE JACOBSEN 1958
Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg™ for the lobby and reception areas in the Royal Hotel, in Copenhagen. The commission to design every element of the hotel building as well as the furniture was Jacobsen’s grand opportunity to put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice. The Egg is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design – a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Like a sculptor, Jacobsen strove to find the shell’s perfect shape in clay at home in his own garage. Because of the unique shape, the Egg guarantees a bit of privacy in otherwise public spaces and the Egg – with or without footstool – is ideal for lounge and waiting areas as well as the home. The Egg is available in a wide variety of fabric upholstery as well as leather, always combined with a star shaped base in satin polished aluminium.

To commemorate the launch of its Beverly Hills store, Hermès has created two blue basketballs (oh please, that joke is so easy) costing $12,900 each and made in the Paris atelier under the creative direction of Pierre-Alexis Dumas. The idea behind the calfskin curios, which are indeed available to buy and use, is to represent “the sky, the ocean and all the beautiful pools that are a way of life in L.A. and Southern California,” says American CEO Robert Chavez. They also feature the same hand-stitching as the house’s iconic Birkin bag, so you could call it couture sporting equipment.
Non li vedi ma li senti. Sono pezzi in plexiglass e in vetro, preziosi oggetti di design e di arredo, che hanno il potere di suggestionare senza farsi vedere, anzi, sanno valorizzare l’ambiente con la loro “presenza-assenza”. Ne ho incontrato cinque esempi tra le mura di Castel Stenico, uno dei manieri più affascinati del Trentino. Ve li presento: nell’ordine, scala elicoidale con pioli in vetro Spiro di Trescalini, Bench in plexiglass Santambrogio Milano, lampade a sospensione in vetro soffiato Empatia di Artemide, seduta Louis Ghost di Kartell, bicchiere in cristallo Harcourt 1841 di Baccarat.
