Custom Made Hand Mosaics by Anne Derian

Mosaics, Anne Derian

Anne Dérian, an architect by trade, is the force behind these beautiful mosaic art pieces. Originally from France, Anne now lives in Berlin and does mosaics on commission basis. In times where everything is about speed, I find incredible beauty in the slowness and thoughtfulness that the mosaic process represents. I’d hire her in a heart beat.

Luckey Climbers

Luckey Climbers

A Luckey Climber is a three dimensional sculpture designed for children to climb on.

Made of bent plywood platforms that are suspended by steel pipes and cables, climbers are visually elegant works of art that are also part jungle gym and once alive with children they become what Thomas Luckey called “fountains of children.“

Absolutely love this.

(Also, made me think of this episode…)

Diogene

Diogene is a stunning cabin by Renzo Piano. It is Vitra’s smallest building ― but largest product. Diogene is not meant as an emergency accommodation, but a voluntary place of retreat. Simply wonderful and yes, luxurious.

Oddly charming.
