Hexagon is a new wall tile collection by Form Us with Love for Träullit, a manufacturer of wood wool cement board in Sweden. The shapely material absorbs sound, retains heat, resists fire, and resists moisture — making it easy to dress up a large blank wall or add a block of color to an otherwise minimal space. Träullit makes each tile with a combination of wood wool, cement, and water. Hexagon is on display at a church in a secret location in conjunction with Stockholm Design Week 2011.
I don’t know much about astrology, but I can still see having one of these pieces with a unique astrological aspect pattern. They’re beautiful, modern, and available in two designs, eight sizes, and 27 colors. StarArc takes your birthday, birth time, and birth location to create a personal pattern, which is then printed using environmentally friendly canvas (“Urth” by Breathing Color) and inks. Pieces range in size from 10″ – 48″ square and price from $280-$830 (although there is currently a 40% off sale).
This is the new Natural Series bench from the popular eco-friendly furniture line called Botantist. Designed by Dario Antonioni, the all-wood bench – similar in appearance to the skinny aluminum version – is available in natural walnut or rift oak finishes composed of layered wood and real wood veneer. Antonioni says the wood is sustainably harvested and the bench is made to order in the USA. Measuring 60″x18″x18″ and weighing 55 pounds, Botanist Natural Series retails for $799.
