Blossom Gate - Penda
Penda’s first ever project came in the form of this 2013 proposal for a sculptural landmark made from bamboo to be set in the flower gardens in Xiangyiang, China. The design was intended to serve as a gateway to the gardens while also giving visitors a place to congregate. As with other such sculptures from across the globe, the design team at Penda hoped it would go on to become the city’s own global landmark. 
With a zigzag construction hidden beneath the sweeping bamboo arches, the designers described their technique as “translating the beauty of a brushstroke into an architectural landmark”

THE WATER TOWER, CHEVELEY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE
I’ve featured a few live/work spaces so far on the Files with properties such as The Workshop and Slip House – both highly individual family homes designed by their architect owners to accommodate a studio space for their respective practices. Ten years ago, would live/work spaces have been quite so prevalent? I doubt it. Technological advances have transformed our ability to work from home after all, so more people are in turn looking for homes that offer an integrated studio or office space. 
The Water Tower incorporates not one but two studio spaces. The first is found on the first floor of the building and is currently used as an artist’s studio, while the second sits within the tower itself – an open plan studio/bedroom with a lofty timber-beamed ceiling and large windows soaking in the views over the surrounding countryside. As live/work spaces go, this is frankly incredible.

Layered Glass Table Concept Creates a Cross-Section of the Ocean by Duffy London | via

With multiple layers of stacked glass and wooden slices, Duffy London has built ‘the abyss table’, replicating the dramatic depths of an indigo ocean. the design creates a geological cross-section of the sea, completing the table as a 3-dimensional model of a geological map. 

‘I was looking into sheets of thick glass at my glass manufacturer’s factory, and noticed how the material darkened as they added more layers – the same way the sea does as it deepens.’ designer christopher duffy describes ‘I wanted to use this effect to replicate a real piece of the earth’s sea bed. like a mythical power had lifted a perfect rectangle straight from the earth’s crust to use as his personal ornament.‘ traditional to the design studio’s aesthetic, the furniture piece acts as both a conversation piece as much as it does a functional one.
