Looking at the post that Emma and Annaleenas Hemdid 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.”

Designer Hella Jongerius (1963) has become known for the special way she fuses industry and craft, high and low tech, tradition and the contemporary.
After graduating Eindhoven Design Academy in 1993 she started her own design company, Jongeriuslab, through which she produces her own projects and projects for clients such as Maharam (New York), Royal Tichelaar Makkum (The Netherlands), Vitra (Basel) and IKEA (Sweden).
Her work has been shown at museums and galleries such as the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum (New York), MoMA (New York), the Design Museum (London), Galerie KREO (Paris) and Moss gallery (New York). The Dutch designer has created 300 unique vases as special collectors artwork to accompany the handmade, signed and numbered edition of the book: Hella Jongerius: Misfit. Phaidon.com went to the oldest factory in The Netherlands: Royal Tichelaar Makkum, for a tour of the beautiful factory with the Managing Director, Jan Tichelaar, to see how these special vases are made and to hear more about their manufacturing and the different layers of colour applied. ‘The story is about experimenting’ says Jan Tichelaar, ‘it is an experiment which become a project which become a product.’
