Tom Dixon X Adidas

adidas-by-tom-dixon-sport-clothing-multi-functionalA new partnership between Ton Dixon and Adidas. And this is the first installation of a two-year collaboration.  Show at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, they designed pieces that can be used for more then one purpose. Like the padded parkas that convert to sleeping bags, ‘ultralite’ hoodies that can be zipped into small pouches during travel, and a spectacular modular five-in-one overall design that converts to a coat, jacket, pant, skirt or short. The collection shows you a new way of looking at sportswear for the future.

Maison Martin Margiela ‘Residual Spaces’

Residual-Spaces-maison-martin-margiela-salone-del-mobileAt  Salone del Mobile in Milan last week.

The Maison Martin Margiela house was designed by street artist Cédric Bernadotte, entitled Residual Spaces. Living in the garden of MMM headquarters, a web of cellophane symbolizes the introduction of the brand concepts of  ”spontaneity and artisanal into an urban setting,” by giving function to non-traditional spaces. Bernadotte’s work uses the pre-existing urban landscape as a base material for home/decor, showing that we can ultimately reside wherever we choose.
