Looking at the post that Emma and Annaleenas Hem, did about the Stockholm Furniture Fair ,I got in a black, gray and white mood. Don’t miss the green room from the Danish design school at Annaleenas Hem blog.
Ciszak Dalmas is a young Madrid and Turin – based studio, co-founded in 2009 by industrial designers Alberto Gobbino Ciszak and Andrea Caruso Dalmas. After graduating from the Politecnico of Turin, they joined different design firms such as Inga Sempé in Paris, Artemide in Milan, Brh+ and Pininfarina in Turin. They completed the European Design Labs Master in 2007 in Madrid, taking part in design workshops directed by international designers and firms.
In the belief that changes are possible with relatively small design actions, in 2010 Ciszak Dalmas launched ‘La Clinica‘ a collection of handcrafted furniture produced by local artisans based in three different parts of the world: Madrid (Spain), Turin (Italy) and Sao Paulo (Brazil). La Clinica is based on the interaction between young designers and experienced artisans, which combines new ideas with centuries-old know-how. The result is three different collections made from the same design and produced differently according to the local traditions and material resources.

“Choosing tableware is an expedition only taken on by those ready to settle into a look which will remain in their family for generations. Hermes hopes that you will consider their Bleus D’Ailleurs tableware collection.Blue porcelain has been with us for centuries and this collection is inspired from the past while delivering elegant looks that summarize a modern spin. “Having come from China after a long voyage, the designs are directly inspired by nature. So there is nothing rigid about the petals, the daisies, the honeycomb…” Black highlights work with the blue in delivering an absolutely beautiful collection of porcelain tableware for your home.”
