Departing from their well-known glass mosaics, luxury Italian design brand Bisazza has launched a new line of decorative ceramic wall tiles for their 2014 collection; a bold, brand new collection conceived and created by Marcel Wanders.
The tiles use Marcel’s signature hexagonal shape, and come in black or white diamond and flower forms that can be freely matched, transforming walls into tactile and asymmetrical artworks. Innovative and daring, Frozen Garden is ideal for all interiors.
To wit: “It only takes one crystal to grow a Frozen Garden. Plant one with loving care, and watch Frozen Garden unfold before your eyes. Organic and wild, glass and ceramic crystals transform walls into tactile and textured universes. Run wild in a garden of your own.”
Windfall is known worldwide as the dynamic contemporary chandelier brand, which is re-defining the nature of crystal chandeliers. Dutch born Roel Haagmans and German Clarissa Dorn were already experienced chandelier designers for other companies when they set up Windfall together in Munich in 2004, to explore the contemporary potential of crystal chandeliers.

"Windfall have entirely re-invented how crystal can be used, stripping back the old idea of an overburdened chandelier to it’s essentials, and bringing a fresh, airy, contemporary quality to classic materials".
Windfall also supplies chandeliers for some of the world’s top luxury brands such as Roberto Cavalli, Cartier, and Mont Blanc.
Since starting the company in 2004, Windfall has collaborated with many leading architects and Light planners, including Italo Rota Architects (Milan) David Chipperfield Arch.

Designing in Kuwait, the need to design a swimming pool or update its finish is on a constant rise. For that I opted to share with you an artistic method of using mosaic tiles in your swimming pool. In a future post I will share the flexibility of including this type of finish within other parts of your home, be it you flooring, the bedroom wall, the living room, bathrooms etc. Below you will find photos of the lovely mosaics designed and made by Sicis in Italy.

That said, the colors are bright and the effect of three-dimensionality rather impressive. Senso, the firm behind the flooring, is a leader in advanced resins flooring.Read More
