Israels Plads Square in Copenhagen, Denmark by COBE

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

Article source: COBE

The history of Israels Plads (Israel’s Square) reflects the history of Copenhagen’s transformation. This central plaza was once where the city ended in a ring of protective fortifications. As the city gradually extended, the plaza became a vibrant market square – until the 1950’s, when it was turned into a lifeless carpark. The idea with the new Israels Plads is to celebrate the significance and the history of of the site and revitalize it, turning it into a vibrant, diverse plaza for all kinds of people and activities. The surface of the new plaza is elevated above the existing street level – like a new urban carpet. It hovers over the many cars that used to dominate Israels Plads and are now placed in the basement. The cars are literally swept under the new urban carpet. The plaza is programmed as a diverse public space for leisure, culture, activity, and public events. In addition, the new plaza has opened up to the historical landscape next door, H.C. Ørstedparken. A few of the large trees and water elements from the park continue into the plaza, creating a transition between city and nature.

Oberriet cemetery in Switzerland by Tom Munz GmbH

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

Article source: Tom Munz GmbH, St.Gallen 

Initial situation

The cemetery building no longer satisfied the requirements for interfaith use. The perimeter of the new hall for public viewings and funeral services was limited by existing areas for graves and urns, and demanded a sacral interpretation together with a suitable atmosphere.

Serip Lighting Exhibition Hall in Beijing, China by CUN Design

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Article source: CUN Design

Feel SERIP

When I first saw the Portuguese brand SERIP lamps, their round, spiral and irregular shapes rooted from the nature remind me of the fantasy world in the movie Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Getting rid of traditional rules, the lamp design perfectly integrates styles such as minimalism, modern and classical. I love SERIP, it gives me a kind of fantastic, romantic and stunning colorful feeling. It is a big surprise for me that I had the chance to design its Beijing exhibition hall in March 2017.
