Way Point — Atelier

Way Point — Jeté — Tommaso Caldera

We are in love with our products, but also the stories that revolve around you. And this is precisely Way Point Atelier: not a collection, not a brand, but an account of an experience. The beginning of a new story, still without an ending, that we have chosen to tell. 

This is the philosophy of Way Point, that during this design week presents 9 new products designed by emerging designers. The result of this research is a series of beautiful and playful lamps, such as those designed by the talented Tommaso CalderaStudio BrichetZiegler and Studio Sovrappensiero.

We like to think of our products as containers of stories. Stories of forms and materials, thoughts and technologies. The stories are told, are listened to, are remembered. But above all the stories are lived.

Design talents — Éléonore Delisse

Éléonore Delisse — Day and night lights

Éléonore Delisse designed a light that rebalances our daily cycle. She created this light as a part of her design academy Eindhoven graduation project. A dichroic glass rotates alongside a lamp to project the colours we need to rebalance our circadian rhythm. Our natural body clocks are programmed to respond to light. In some people, dropping light levels in autumn and winter disrupt our internal clock, or circadian rhythm, setting off a depression called Seasonal Affective Disorder. The lamp is set to generate a blue hue in the mornings, to lessen melatonin production and stimulate wakefulness. In the evenings a warm amber glow sets off melatonin production and makes you drowsy. It's a perfect solution to get rid of the winter blues.

Rexa design

Rexa — Esperanto

Rexa is an Italian company that produces furniture for bathroom. These are pictures of their latest collections, Esperanto and Moode. I think the mix of materials and colors that they have chosen is perfect. 
Esperanto suggests a new way to live the bathroom area according to personal the tastes and needs: “ The idea is to have all necessary things well in view, without creating an impression of untidiness, in opposite, suggesting the actions to undertake in our daily routine with a lightly mood, exactly as it happens on a well laid table.” The collection is made of modular cabinets with hinged doors that can be wall-hung or combined with trestles in order to give more support and personality. The composition is completed by basins, integrated or over-counter, mirrors and holders. The collection materials are the Corian®, the KorakrilTM, the Cocciopesto, the gel and the ceramic in different colors combinations, to totally customize the space.

In order to customize the bathroom area and create an harmony of spaces, colors and solutions, Moode suggests laminated cabinets to dress with with different materials and finishing, integrated or over-counter basins, mirrors and holders. Materials as the Corian®, the KorakrilTM, the Cocciopesto, the gel and the ceramic customize the room and turn it into a place to live.

“ The internal structure of the Moode storage units is the same for all finishes and is carried out with a decoration inspired to a herringbone fabric. Same for the drawers. The general tidiness effect is thus not too rigorous and…soft.”
