UGO RONDINONE Artist Rondinone’s recipe for this month’s Artist’s Palate (page 162) – Swiss alpine macaroni – nods to his personal roots. Known for his eye-catching public art and whimsical cast-bronze creatures, the prolific artist is also a keen campaigner for bladder cancer treatment research, and recently organised a charity auction at Sotheby’s New York. His rainbow-coloured neon work, We Are Poems, illuminates the entrance of the Beaux-Arts de Paris until 30 June. JONATHAN BELL Transport & Technology Editor When Bell joined Wallpaper* as an editorial assistant in 1998, one of his first tasks was writing the contributors’ bios. A lot has changed since, especially in transport and technology, his current editorial remit. ‘Imagine a world before smartphones, when Google was a big new thing, or when the only electric vehicles were milk floats.’ He…

The class of 2020 is taking things back to basics when it comes to creating tools for our tresses. For ÉCAL graduate Aurore Piedigrossi, it was an update of the ubiquitous horn comb. ‘The Hers valley in France once had a flourishing horn comb industry,’ she says. ‘Millions of combs were produced every year in factories all around the region, but the arrival of plastic made this precious industry disappear.’ Piedigrossi set about pushing the comb to new limits, bending and twisting it into many new shapes, thus ‘allowing for its evolution’. And while Piedigrossi’s project harks back to bygone times, Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Kodai Shimizu’s Craft-Techmen project looks to the future, envisioning home appliances that can be easily fixed rather than thrown away and replaced. @aurorepiedigrossi; kodaishimizu.com FOR STOCKISTS…

time capsule

Designed by architect Kisho Kurokawa in 1972, the iconic Nakagin Capsule Tower, in the heart of Tokyo, was originally conceived for elite businessmen seeking conveniently-located private or rented accommodation or offices. But, after years of neglect, the building fell into a state of disrepair and has long been in danger of demolition. For architecture enthusiasts, it has become something of an Instagram pilgrimage as they head to Ginza to snap images of ‘pods’ that have been abandoned, metal doors rotted and broken, ceilings and walls peeling. The owners are divided into two camps: one that wants to save the tower because of its architectural value, and one that would prefer to demolish and rebuild, cashing in on the land value. The final decision will be made by the building’s management…

sweet art

That traditional savoury staple of Japanese gastronomy, miso is beginning to venture outside its comfort zone and into the sweet dish sphere. Satisfying our cravings for umami (the fifth taste sensation), miso can add a rich, savoury baseline to cakes, cookies and ice cream, as we recently sampled in New York (OddFellows’ miso cherry ice cream), London (Honey & Co’s apple and miso cake with butterscotch) and Paris (Mokonuts’ miso sesame cookies). Inspired by the salty sweet combo, Wallpaper’s entertaining director Melina Keays created her own sweet miso concoctions, which we then staged on and around recent Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Mathilde Philipponnat’s tableware, which finds inspiration in the work of Fauve painter Maurice de Vlaminck. The French designer takes the oversimplified lines, feisty outbursts of colour, and visible brushwork…

flash forward

We’re carrying a real torch for this flashlight-shaped minaudière in Virginie Viard’s debut Resort collection for Chanel. Its graphic Plexiglas shell features grooves that nod to the Parisian maison’s signature quilting, while encrusted orbs resemble flashing lightbulbs. Chanel has a bit of a penchant for novelty-shaped handbags (in recent seasons, we’ve seen styles resembling beach balls, robots and even snow-topped ski lifts), but we find the toolbox touch behind this design particularly illuminating. Just don’t store it in your shed. chanel.com…
