Super Compact Sauna Inipi B by Duravit

super-compact-sauna-duravit-inipi-b-1.jpg

The Inipi B Sauna by Duravit is so super compact that you can install it right in a regular sized bathroom. A lot of the time, we put home saunas in other spaces, like the basement, because the sauna requires quite a lot of room. But thanks to Duravit’s collaboration with design studio EOOS, we have options to easily fit a modern sauna into our bathroom and turn it into a real relaxing oasis. The one person compact version measures only 120cm X 120cm, while the two person compact version measures 240cm X 120 cm. It’s also designed to be easily assembled and disassembled, so whether you are living in a rented space or planning to move around, you can always take Inipi B with you. Space efficient, flexible and of great quality, this sauna also boasts a restrained elegance that’s perfectly suited to a modern spa like feel.

Blown Glass Pendant Lamps by Prandina

blown-glass-pendant-lamps-prandina-1.jpg

Prandina showed off four of their new blown glass pendant lamps at the Light & Building 2012 fair. We had to share them with you because these pendants are something to see. The new lamps are called Tiara, Gong, Bloom and Chorus and they all share a smooth, curved appeal. Tiara is pure elegance, and our favorite. The bottom part of the diffuser has a slightly truncated cone shape upon which a perfectly circular shape sits. Only a line of light separates the seamlessness between these shapes and gives this lamp such charm. Gong is like a cocoon; strong yet delicate encasing something beautiful. In this case, it’s light. Bloom is the mysterious one; providing up and down lighting, this lamp gives off a nice diffused light to enhance the ambiance. Chorus is the one that plays with subtle angles on a cylindrical shape; depending where you view if from, its shape can slightly change on you.

Rustic Wood Sofa Utah by Riva

rustic-wood-sofa-utah-riva-1.jpg

Utah is a rustic wood sofa by Riva that makes quite a statement, not only from its visual appearance, but from its history as well. Visually, Utah is quite imposing but the worn wood, the leather and its size gives it a sort of friendly giant feel – cozy, trustworthy, comfortable and wise for your beautiful homes. It would look great in a mountain lodge setting, or maybe a stylish, bold contrast in a minimal, modern setting in your designer homes. If you’re not yet charmed by it, let me tell you the story. Riva recently decided to give new life to a special Venetian material called Briccolas. Briccolas are actually the posts that sit in the lagoons. They need to be replaced approximately every ten years due to natural erosion and the work of mollusks – their craftiness can be noticed by the characteristic mini holes in the wood. The Utah sofa, which can be made to measure by the way, is one of the resulting creations born out of Riva’s reuse and redesign philosophy. Nice story, right?
