Tone35 Clocks by Wiebe Teertstra for LEFF amsterdam

Designer Wiebe Teertstra has presented a new clock for the new Dutch brand, LEFF amsterdam which is based in Marcel Wanders’ Westerhuis in Amsterdam.

“The contrast in this design is not formed by the colours itself, but by its finish. A glossy transparent spot varnish is printed on the matt dial to create a so-called ton-sur-ton effect. Depending on the light, the index print will be clearly visible, slightly visible or not even visible at all. Let light set the tone”.
- Wiebe Teertstra

Torus by Claesson Koivisto Rune for DFTS Factory

Through modern 3D manufacturing and selective laser sintering (SLS), new shapes are possible. Shapes that cannot be made either by conventional machines or traditional handicraft. Torus is such a shape. The torus can be described as a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three dimensional space about an axis coplanar with the circle. It is now also the name of a bracelet. Each Torus bracelet is made of 2208 individual loose links and takes four hours to print.

Narciso Vase by Giorgia Zanellato

Narciso is a project which started with the intention of designing some vases, focusing on the functionality of the vase as an object. But what is the function of a vase? They are used to display flowers. Narciso is a collection of six different vases which use mirrors to draw attention to the role of the flowers. Mirrors are investigated in all their aspects, from the simplest reflection to the most complex one. In this way each vase shows flowers from a different point of view. They’re made in borosilicate glass, powder-coated alluminium and mirrored stainless steal.
