The revolutionary new WoJo fabric will be used in a range of Starbucks seating and forms part of the company’s commitment to ethical sourcing and environmental stewardship, at the same time as supporting wool farmers.
The new textile is being unveiled as part of UK Wool Week and will be featured at Starbucks flagship Conduit Street store in London’s West End.
Additionally, the organisers of UK Wool Week – The Campaign for Wool, convened by HRH The Prince of Wales, and The Society of British Interior Design (SBID) – have recognised Starbucks and The Formary with an award for Sustainable Product Innovation.

VONDOM is entering into other new phase in 2010, for enriching their design and make it more original, more
innovative and more chic, both for indoor as for outdoor spaces, VONDOM started the collaboration together with
the prestigious and multi-talented designer, KARIM RASHID.
¨I was more than thrilled because of the adventurous bold projects they have developed with other great designers as well as their quality, sensibility, and culture¨, said KARIM RASHID. He developed about 50 furniture objects for Vondom. Below a few samples of this collection.
If retro is your thing you may be interested in this suspending chair which follows the natural shape of the reclining body.

Another interesting company at 100% design was Grayconcrete.
The company produces custom made light weight concrete projects. Their fibre reinforced concrete can be used and moulded in a variety of ways, forms and colours, with built in patterns and graphics.
If you can think of it they can probably built it.
Have a look at some of their projects.

Finally someone thought of producing this. I personally have been looking for a contemporary shower wiper for quite some time now. Nothing more annoying than delivering a slick looking minimalist bathroom in which the client puts a fluorescent yellow window wiper.
But the alternative will be here soon. This stylish stainless steel and rubber shower wiper produced by Danish manufacturer VIPP will hit the market this November 2009.
This playful radiator was send to us by italian manufacturer Projectclima
Projectclima Radiator, ADACTO for "Kids" leaves space to the imagination of the youngest, so they can also give their contribution in designing and furnishing the room where they do spend most of their time.
ADACTO for "Kids", amuses the little ones and makes the grown up happy as, thanks to its modularity and an exceptional Thermal Power, it heats up the kids room as a traditional radiator.
And when the kids grow up ?
No worries ! Thanks to the interchangeable “cover” system, it is possible to update the look of the radiator with a more grown-up composition , whenever you want and without disconnecting it from the hydraulic system.

I went to the press breakfast Thursday morning of the wood collection designed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Molteni&C.
Nothing we haven’t seen before but the first time the collection makes it to London. It can now be viewed at the Molteni & C Dada flagship store recently opened in London.
Below I posted some picture of the store and the collection.
The Store can be found at:
199 Shaftesbury Avenue.

This is an interesting product. An 8 by 4 foot board out of recycled plastic. 100% recyclable and claimed to be an alternative to plywood.
It was introduced at the ecobuilt exhibition and should be available on the market in June.
We didn’t get any technical data sheet or pricing yet so it’s not entirely clear what the possibilities are for the interior use but it is definitely worth keeping an eye out for this product.
