Limited Edition White Shark from Urwerk

p

p

Time is monochrome on the UR-202 “White Shark”, with its case, dial and hour satellites all in an original shimmering silver/white hue emitted by titanium, steel and ARCAP. The black numbers of the hours on the satellites stand out clearly against the light background; however one number of the 12 hour digits is the bright red exception to the rule – this identifies the individual piece in this limited edition of 12. The “White Shark”, a limited edition of 12 pieces, is available exclusively from Chronopassion (Paris), The Hour Glass (Singapore) and URWERK (Geneva). Link here.

X tape series with the printed image of “joining” on box sealing tape, make optical illusion and visualize the original function of tape. X-tape: (hinge), one of X-tape series is a witty metaphor of strong adhesion of box sealing tape, creating visual images of combining the wrapped items tight with hinges.

Fish House by Guz Architects

‘ This modern tropical bungalow encapsulates the essence of living in the hot and humid climate of Singapore by creating open spaces which encourage natural ventilation and offer residents views to the ocean. The main design concept is to create a house which has close relationship with nature and this is achieved by having a swimming-pool linking the house with the landscape and ultimately visual connections with the sea. The idea of connection is reinforced by having the basement level media-room with a u-shaped acrylic window which allows diffuse natural light in and also views out into the pool. The curved roofs, which symbolizing the sea waves, also emphasize the idea of the nearby sea. These are almost totally covered with thin bendable photovoltaic panels supplying enough energy to the house, while the remaining area is used as a green roof giving residents some outdoor leisure spaces. Fish House is a modest and yet luxurious residential design which gives residents opportunities to live in harmony and comfortably with nature. ‘ (via Contemporist) Guz Architects website – Photography by Patrick Bingham Hall
