LUGI LIMITED EDITION: INDUSTRIAL TABLES
February 5, 2014

The Czech furniture maker LUGI comes with its first limited edition: Industrial tables. The edition is now exhibited in LUGI Store in Vinohradský Pavilion.

The limited edition Industrial tables began with the discovery of aged metal table bases. People at LUGI came with an idea of resurrecting the old parts, combining them with perfect new table tops and returning them into the interior. LUGI’s designer Matej Chabera designed new smart wooden tops for the old bases and in this way give the tables new life.

SINGER TABLE
The Singer table base comes from the classic steel sewing machine table. The tops are both made from solid oak and their edges are finished just like the ones on tailors’ sewing machines. The new design still refers very strongly to the base’s origin.

JEAN TABLE
Jean is an industrial table built on a cast iron base of two identical parts connected with two tubes. The top is made of veneer.

MARCEL TABLE
The bent tube base of the Marcel table links directly to the original modernistic discoveries of Bauhaus under the hands of architects such as Marcel Breuer or Mart Stam. The top is made of MDF and ash veneer.

SUNDAY INSPIRATION: GREEN FLOWERS
January 19, 2014
In this time of the year, one month after the Christmas, it is time to clear away all the decorations and clean out properly.
We all need a kick of new energy for the rest of the winter. The best way how to refresh your home is to purchase some green plants!
We have bought some succulents and Lenka has made a simple paper flowerpot for one of them.

Where do you get new energy? Do you also buy flowers?

ONE DAY IN DRESDEN
January 13, 2014
Last Friday we visited Staged Design Award + Show and since we had enough time before the opening of Staged, we took a walk in the city. We really enjoyed it despite the windy weather. We also visited some cafés and used this time for discussing our next issue.
We love Dresden and its monumental architecture. Moreover, from Prague it takes only 2 hours to get to Dresden by car!
