Water is the most pure existing source, which through design has also been considered a luxury product. It is probably the only product, which is a survival necessity and has been incorporated in many forms to express each person’s lifestyle choice. There are multiple water brands and bottles that say a lot about you. Which water bottle do you carry walking in to the gym? What brand do you have on your dinner table?

Power of Making

Off


 

What do words like “craft” and “skill” mean in 2011? That is one of the questions that the exhibition ‘Power of Making’ seeks to answer. This film delves into the working lives of four makers: shoe designer Marloes ten Bhömer, crochetdermist Shauna Richardson, artist, curator and glass designer Matt Durran and flute-maker Stephen Wessel. It uncovers processes of thought and making that are as fascinating, complex and contemporary as the exhibition itself.

Contemporary minimalism usually describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art, where the work is stripped down to its most fundamental features. Such is the case with this historic residential flat in the old port of Jaffa, Tel Aviv – Israel, designed by Israeli-based Pitsou Kedem Architects. The 100 square metre (1,076.4 square feet) residential flat which overlooks the majestic splendour of the Mediterranean Sea is very unique not only for its location, but also for the structure itself.
