New mages from my kitchen & a lamp made by ANOUR


VOSGESPARIS.COM DIVAR LAMP BY ANOUR

Although you already saw some pictures we made in my kitchen for our w/ Style shoots, I made a few more to show you my latest treasure, the 'Divar' lamp from Anour. With a worktop extractor, which I would highly recommend in case you are building your kitchen, I had to think of how to illuminate the worktop and this part of my kitchen that is painted in black.

New plans and collections by Frama


While the team at Frama is preparing an all new experience at the Frama store for the next season, I thought of showing you the latest additions to their ever expanding collection. I have always loved the industrial character of the Eiffel lamp and need to confess I have one in a box for a long time waiting for the right place and time. If you love seeing more of Frama and their different projects have a look here at all my previous blog stories and styling.

Authentic plaster finishes at Apparatus by Kamp Studios

APPARATUS STUDIO

I am a huge admirer of Apparatus, not only do I love their work, their stores belong to the most beautiful I know. While looking at the picture above I found out Kamp Studios is responsible for the beautiful wall finishes. Kamp Studios is a multi-disciplinary creative studio, based in New York and Los Angeles, specializing in architecturally authentic plaster finishes. I am 
happy they kindly shared some images with me of their work at Apparatus Los Angeles, and so impressed by the different colours and structures in the wall finish.

Grand & Johnson new showroom studio and conceptstore


Although I really dislike the over-tourism that has hit Amsterdam in the last few years. I still believe there is an amount of tourists and locals interested in other things than what we dislike and did not miss during lockdown. Such as beautiful coffee places, outstanding restaurants and hotels and of course my favourite subject: Design in the city! It has been five years since I first wrote about one of my favourite Amsterdam based Studio and conceptstores: Minimalistic yet rich -spectacular yet sober With their brand new location just across the former smaller studio and store Grand & Johnson created a beautiful experience in the monumental and industrial tram depot 'De Hallen'.

The Circle | Objects by Elisa Ossino for Officine Saffi


"The Circle" is a collection of objects by Elisa Ossino for Officine Saffi."The Circle" takes her quest for abstraction in the living space to the next level with the creation of a suspended, lunar dimension in which the space itself becomes a habitable sculpture. Elisa Ossino: "Clays and sands handcrafted with artisan techniques and without an initial mould preserve the formal emotion of a material that seems to petrify into unique pieces: prime numbers forged outside the framework of mass production."

Top 3 Design lamps by Danish LE KLINT | Selected by vosgesparis

LE KLINT CYLINDER LAMP


With a new countertop and most of the kitchen finished, my next focal point is the lighting at my home. I think a beautiful lamp really finishes off a space, just like curtains, which will be my next project! After years it was time to replace the common hardware store lamps and a few others that I was tired of. I already have several new ones, or updated old favourites and some others are on their way. My last purchase which I showed in this post, was love at first sight at imm Cologne earlier this year.

Minimal design at home | Philips TV x Bowers & Wilkins


On Instagram I already gave you a sneak peek of the bench I made the other week, I guess you loved it as much as I do, because I received lots of messages asking if I would share how to make one too. What I didn't tell was that I made the bench especially for an upcoming collaboration with Philips Television. Philips TV recently launched two OLED+ models in collaboration with legendary British audio company Bowers & Wilkins, the Philips TV OLED+934 and OLED+984

Before continuing to discover the world of antoniolupi, I would like to show some more architectural basin solutions made available to architects and designers, where the sink disappears into space, leaving the role of protagonist to water and other natural elements.
