Led Zeppelin - Arthur Analts

Led Zeppelin - Arthur Analts The idea of the Led Zeppelin ladder by Arthur Analts comes from the band’s iconic track, Stairway to Heaven. Made from aluminium, the ladder can be placed in three different positions in the room, from leaning straight against the wall to placed in a 45 degree corner. There are cuts at the end of the ladder steps for hanging clothing or instruments, solving having to climb up and down to retrieve items. Led Zeppelin is available in a limited edition…

BCO launches whole life carbon report

Deconstruction work on the old Leadenhall building The British Council for Offices (BCO) has recently launched its Whole Life Carbon Footprint Measurement and Offices report. This deals with the issue of measuring the energy efficiency of buildings throughout their entire lifetime. This is a particularly hot topic given that new European legislation will require new office buildings to be designed with this ‘whole life’ approach to carbon emissions. Over the next few years, all private office buildings over a certain size will also have to display Energy…

Profile: Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands

Profile: Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands Alex Lifschutz jokes that Paul Sandilands, his voluble co-director at architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, barely lets him get a word in edgeways. True to form, when Sandilands joins us at a meeting in their west London offices, he obligingly mocks Lifshutz’s new iPad. Yet it’s clear that the two principals thrive on their lively office banter. The practice has grown to 110 staff, and work is about to begin on one of its most prominent projects to date, 120 Moorgate…

Profile: Claesson Kovisto Rune

Profile: Claesson Kovisto Rune Every European country has its design royalty. You know the types – people who can pull in a decent crowd at a press conference. In Sweden, it’s a trio of friends called Claesson, Koivisto and Rune. Since forming their multi-disciplinary design studio 17 years ago, they have collaborated with most of the major brands going, making them permanent fixtures on the international scene. Although, however global their client base becomes (around 50 companies at the last count), there is a…
Squire and Partners sumptuous Mayfair fit-out Mayfair has always held a certain allure. Compared to the City’s flashy young upstarts or the East End creatives, the area cuts an air of a dignified old gentleman ensconced in private members’ clubs and fine tailoring, at least in the popular imagination. For outsiders wanting a piece of wealthy Old London, it is the only place to be. But how do you enter into a world steeped in exclusivity? Well, providing you have the readies, you can always recreate…

Google grows up

Google grows up Google’s beach-hut-filled London office charmed the design community and beyond with its playfulness and primary-coloured kook when it opened for business in 2010 (onoffice 50). But despite the success of the Scott Brownrigg-designed space, the firm opted for a different approach for Google Engineering’s headquarters on London’s Buckingham Palace Road, commissioning architects Penson to drop the kindergarten palette and develop something a little more grown up. “A lot of people have distinct ideas about what the Google ‘look’ is but…

Westminister hub by 00:/

Westminister hub by 00:/ It’s first thing on Monday morning and the team behind start-up superstudio Hub Westminster have got the coffee on, but it doesn’t feel like they really need the caffeine hit. If Ken Livingstone was said to think in soundbites, these guys have them hardwired into their brains. And that’s not a diss. “We’re like a 21st-century members’ club,” begins Alice Fung, co-founder of this Hub, the latest incarnation in what has become a 28-strong global network of places for small…

Golden cubes in Graz

Golden cubes in Graz Graz is Austria’s second largest city and one of two distinct halves. The river Mur, which flows through its centre on its way down to neighbouring Croatia, divides the medieval old town from newer developments on the east bank. Uhrturm, the venerable old clock tower that sits solemnly atop Grazer Schloßberg, overlooks the city’s melting pot of Gothic, Renaissance, Mannerist and Baroque architecture, a historical stew that scooped Graz World Heritage Site status in 1999. One might assume that the…

Aberdeen council's gothic new digs

Aberdeen council's gothic new digs It’s quite a stretch to imagine that the soaring shimmering form of Marischal College, a 120m-long and 24m-tall silver granite landmark building that currently dominates Aberdeen’s skyline, was until recently a dark and dirty – and pigeon infested – city centre “development opportunity”. It’s a dramatic reversal of fortune, and one that arrived in the unlikely form of a huge leap of faith from a cash-strapped Aberdeen City Council, who opted to invest £40m to transform one the largest granite…
