These amazing images are the result of the beautiful work of Elisa Ossino and the photographer Tommaso Sartori for the Italian company Kerakoll.
Kerakoll Design House is a natural development for Kerakoll as part of their experience of interior design for the home environment. Under the direction of Piero Lissoni, the materials, textures and colors are able to dialogue and merge into a coherent musical score generating sophisticated harmonies of colors and materials. Spaces blend together and walls vanish: the floors and the coatings, the fixtures, the furnishing accessories, the lighting and heating fixtures all become a single seamless surface. A rational and integrated home: from the living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom to the new home-working areas.
House Doctor has released this little sneak peek of its new 2015 collection. The collection is named Secret Signatures and is inspired by the decorative hints that make up a personal home. Secret signatures relate to the unique stylings and combinations of furniture, colours and items that separate one home from another and tell a story of that particular person living there. I can't wait to see the entire collection!
This is the amazing work of Meagan from Okru. Meagan has a background in design. In her day job, she works as a strategist, dealing with intangibilities. Okru is her outlet for craft, making and the more delicate tangibilities of life. This collection was born out of a desire for simplicity and uniqueness. Each piece in the Okru collection is designed with the belief that each impression, color combination, imperfection or fingerprint, only add to the one of a kind quality of each Okru piece. All of our pieces are hand made with polymer clay in Brooklyn, NY.
Stian Korntved Ruud is a young Norwegian designer. Through his innate fascination of how products are made and put together, he has always experimented, modified, repaired and destroyed the objects around him.
After a formal education in product design at Akershus University College and the Oslo School of Architecture and design in Oslo, as well as a internship at Tom Dixon in London followed by a series of exhibitions around the world. He is now focusing on materials natural and enforced properties designing and making objects with pure functional or aesthetic features. This is his latest project, dailyspoon. Almost everyday produces a beautiful spoon, with incredible shapes. About his research Stian says:
The past year I spent most of my time exploring the unique organic qualities of wood and how adding of
a function can beautifully refine a piece of wood. The project will eventually consists of 365 unique hand carved spoons made from various types of wood.
The last months I’ve crafted a spoon every day. I aim to reach the goal of 365 spoons later this year.
By repeating the production of a spoon every day for a longer period of time (365 days), the goal is to
challenge and explore a spoons aesthetic and functional qualities.
I make all the spoons in a traditional way with only hand tools. The point of this is to actively cooperate with the material, in this case wood. In a modern industrial production the machines overwrites the wooden structures and natural growth pattern. When using manual hand tools my hand collaborates with the wood structure during the forming process. This underpins all the spoons unique qualities.

One of my obsessions are jewels. In particular I like the necklaces with geometric and minimal shapes. A good example are those designed by the Spanish designer Eva Dueñas. Forms and materials recall the Art Decò.
I love rugs. In particular I adore the CC-Tapis carpets. Their products have a modern design and beautiful colors. They just released a new collection called Oddie, gorgeous as ever.
All undyed but with bright colors, run-down effect but with brand new technique, the “Oldie” collection seems to like the contradiction.Thanks to a new knotting technique, the bright colored cotton warp is randomly visible through the undyed himalayan wool pile, resulting in an all natural “OLD” effect, obtained with no use of acids or any other chemical product.
Cc-tapis was created in 2011 by the traditional Persian house Maison Chamszadeh, founded in 1943 and well known in France for the quality of its handknotted rugs. The main headquarters are now in Milan, where a team of designers innovates through a new approach to the traditional methods. Undyed raw materials, innovative weaving patterns and techniques are key part of the process. All cc-tapis ® rugs are completely handknotted by expert Tibetan artisans in Nepal. A strong respect for the materials and for the culture of this ancient craft is reflected in the company’s eco-friendly approach to every step of the production, ranging from the hand spinning of the softest Himalayan wool to the use of purified rainwater for the washing of the final products, making each one of cc-tapis rugs unique. No chemicals, acids or artificial fibres are ever used in the process. Far from mass production, cc-tapis aims to offer a tailored service to those who understand and enjoy a high-end product, where a three month production time contains a story of ageless culture.
