Things change…and how! In 2009, when WWM announced the launch of Home & Design Trends, I distinctly remember wondering why launch HDT when we have GoodHomes. Why have two magazines in the same spectrum? I vividly remember how the entire GoodHomes team had subconsciously geared up for some strong competition. The tension between the two teams was palpable. We seemed to follow an unwritten code of conduct. That was then… Who would have imagined back then that almost a decade later I would be so passionately involved with the brand. Nine years, and two very enigmatic editors later, the magazine has established itself as one of the most definitive voices in the world of architecture and design. I must say I’ve inherited a strong legacy. It’s almost intimidating. But honestly, I’m more excited…

To bring this product to life, he began with heavy research into novelist Marcel Proust’s origins and his visual and material world. What he found made him want to create an entire armchair from scratch, with a detail from a Paul Signac painting as the pattern for the structure and fabric. Mendini’s input process was different from the usual design methodology, but that helped him achieve his aim of coming up with a different result for a culturally grounded object like an armchair. Consequently, the first Poltrona di Proust armchair was born in 1978. For seven years after that, multiple versions of the…

design in context

LOST IN THOUGHT Often, it’s the designers who think out of the box to design furniture that pre-empts users’ ever-changing needs. With the Luftikus bookshelf and to/o side table by German studio AJML’s Abdalla Mohamed and Jannes Lüdtke, it’s the users who need to don their thinking hats. Luftikus is a unique storage system in that it has no shelves, only wooden rods that form a lattice, prompting the user to devise innovative methods to use it. To/o is a sneaky side table – if the orange plate is not weighed down, the entire piece becomes wobbly and unusable. At the same time however, the round body makes it easier to wheel the piece from one place to another. UP IN FLAMES Kunikazu Hamanishi, founder of Hamanishi Design, envisioned the burning metal project…
