YOY Design Studio Created Hanging Canvas Furniture

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 16, 2013
We weren't quite sure what was going on here until we saw a few different angles of Japanese design studio YOY's latest 'canvas,' two-dimensional-looking hanging furniture pieces.

Winding Concrete Cultural Center in Norway

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 08, 2013
  We love this proposal for a new cultural center in Norway by the portuguese engineering and design firm Cerejeira Fontes Architects. Interpreting a lineal series of spaces, the overlapping, winding concrete form also has a cantilevering tail and forms an outdoor gathering space in its center. The roof emerges from a rock formation and doubles as seating for events and an extruded form frames views of the ocean.

During Italian architect and designer Aldo Rossi's lifetime he accomplished the unusual feat of achieving international recognition in four distinct areas: theory, drawing, architecture and product design and winning the Pritzker Prize in 1990. 'His work combined unabashedly grand forms with the most reductive geometric shapes.' View a collection of his sketches and drawing after the jump...
