Rashid-land …

Karim Rashid.  Enough said.  You can utilise the search engine in the top right this page to search for our specific thoughts on Karim, but loosely, we love his designs, we love his instantly recognizable flamboyant style and his latest project in Miami is no exception.  Nor is the incredible product available at KE-ZU designed by the master himself for Spanish manufacturer Vondom and Sancal – see a selection below.

With context now, the images below of the residence designed by Karim speak for themselves.  Just.  So.  Karim.

Harmonic Convergence emergence …

We are absolutely loving the installation work of Christopher Janney,  American artist or “sound architect” as we understand he goes by!  You’ll find itself at the Miami International Airport (like landing in Miami wasn’t fun enough!) and goes by the name ‘Harmonic Convergence’.

Harmonic Convergence is an interactive sound and light installation, which was constructed in a walkway of the Airport and was installed to coincide with Design Miami, the Global Forum for Design held annually in December.

The work combines light, colour and sound as it leads passengers from a rental car terminal.  Music speakers are installed along the walkway to produce an evolving “sonic portrait” of Florida. These sounds range from environmental happenings local to the State, tropical birds, thunderstorms etc while video sensors at either end monitor your presence through the space and trigger changes in volume and composition of the sounds relative to your position.

Like that wasn’t enough, we love the colourful diagonal pattern made of coloured and shaded squares which cause a stunning reflection over the white flooring.  Why not use the Florida sunlight?  And when that’s not available – LED lighting was installed to replicate the effect at night.

What’s even greater… check out the ‘before’ shot.
