Designers Mark Jehs and Jurgen Laub put their heads together and came up with this cool, smart sofa design – the Jalis soft sofas by COR. “Jalis,” taken from Arabic, translates to “relaxed communication,” and a more fitting name there could not be. These Oriental style sofas were made for any interior and any situation, from casual lounging to formal entertaining. Designed to encourage social interaction, this soft sofa can be combined for a variety of layouts suited to any-sized space. The fine fabric provides support and style, and when the light hits it in a certain way you’ll appreciate a pattern of three-dimensional fine embroidery. The deep seats, cushy backrests and copious cushions deliver comfort and a contemporary signature interior style that transforms any room into a social hotspot.
In what is perhaps a bathroom fixture that could be familiar if you were in Japan, Philippe Starck gets into the act with the Senso Wash. The designer offers another potential alternative as far as anteing up the level of personal hygiene devices is concerned with the Senso Wash or what the Japanese call the washlet.
Launched last week, the advanced and innovative toilet seat should be something that could bring personal hygiene to the next level. Prior to this design by Starck, Toto of Japan was the frontrunner in providing such innovative luxury bath fixtures.
Unusual bookcase designs become both storage solutions and partitions in this space designed by French h20 Architectes. They came with a unique idea to increase usability of this small 60 sq.m apartment. Before renovation, the unit was extremely tight, with a 5 sq.meter area allotted for the entrance. The existing walls bore various widths and thickness. As a solution, the bookcase designs that were built are diverse in dimensions to accommodate the various possessions of the client and are cleverly positioned to separate living spaces. Predominantly white, the apartment is made alive with dollops of orange, green, gray, and black.
