Wallpaper* released the winners of their annual Design Awards this week and as usual the field of innovative and decorative home furnishings is simply amazing. Here are some of the items that combine and artistic take on everyday furniture, appliances, and home accessories.
Designers G Di Tullio and S Ragaini joined talents to win the best New Domestic Appliance award for the 'Ciussai' bathroom heater that allows the user to stretch or wind the garden hose like structure to their liking or specific space requirements.
Interior design winner "Banq" by Office dA received inspiration from a Banyan tree that swirls and flows in a rather organic pattern. The woodsy interior design features layered Birch and recycled bamboo tables.The site was originally the formerly Boston's Penny Savings Bank which is now a hot spot for a multi-cultural dining experience led by chef Ranveer Brar.
The "Bloomframe" window by Hofman Dujardin Architects is the winner in the Most life-enhancing product category. This non-typical window responds to the push of a button to open up and relive any sense of being boxed in. Ironically the window opens up to create boxy structure that has been described as a bijou balcony.
