Lorusso - Factory of upholstered furniture in Russia

Lorusso - Factory of upholstered furniture in Russia

Lorusso is a factory producing upholstered furniture. The idea of creating the Furniture Atelier "Lorusso Divani" arose from studying the local market upholstered furniture of Russia.

The main goal they set at the stage of founding the factory was the production of designer upholstered furniture according to the highest European quality standards while being affordable for the Russian buyer.

To create and organize a professional furniture production, in 2011, Italian technologists and designers were invited to Magnitogorsk. They participated in creating the factory's technological project helped debug the production process and quality control. As a result, this made it possible to create a stunning designer collection of stylish and high-quality sofas and quickly bring production to a high level, creating a distribution network covering more than three dozen cities in Russia. Today the factory continues to develop independently while carefully preserving the technology and culture of production. However, the Italian influence can be seen in the classic line from Lorusso Divani and the modern collection of the premium brand. A distinctive feature of Lorusso is that they do not use conveyor production. All sofas are assembled exclusively by hand, which makes their products unique. "We create furniture according to an individual project. This is why architectural bureaus and design studios appreciate us," they say: "Therefore, partnerships with such an extensive Internet resource as Zeel Project is essential for us. We believe that our products should be represented as simple and accessible as possible. Zeel Project team does an excellent job and allows us to showcase our products among the extensive design community." You can find Lorusso exclusive products’ 3D models at Zeel Project and download them free for your designs.

Design Line: a big breakthrough for designers

Design Line: a big breakthrough for designers

It is human nature to create something of their own, something unusual, beyond reality but existing in fantasy.
And Design Line is the unusual collection of those creations.

Let us dig deeper into the Design Line project of Deco Line company to discover more about the challenging project.

The mission of the Design Line project is to create new connections with designers and architects and bring to life their newly discovered and creative ideas. With this in mind, Deco Line company embodies the author's unique sketches into reality. Obviously, the authors of the models are designers and architects. And maybe only for this reason, the 3D panels included in Design Line have unrepeatable designs.

Whenever communicating with designers or architects, the company members are under the impression that deep inside designers and architects crave something new, creative, exclusive, and bespoke because they have their ideas. As Deco Line highly appreciates everything innovative, the company came up with the solution of fulfilling the ideas of designers and architects in any way. And here is how the idea of the Design Line project was born. When we say the project, we mean a sort of cooperation between a designer or an architect and Deco Line company.

Design Line is a big breakthrough for designers. The authors give names to their models, which later appear in Deco Line’s catalog. Not only does it give worldwide recognition to the designer but also money: as the designer receives the sale of the model. In other words, the Design Line project allows the designers to represent and why not, sell their model and the company to have a unique collection, and always remain in trend!
Win-Win, right? So why not tell about the first but surely not the last success in Design Line? It refers to the first model in this series that was sold! The author of the model is the chief designer of Futuris Architects design studio, Ofelia Vardanyan. She was one of the first designers, much inspired by the idea of having her models in the series. As a result, she has created several models. The first success is all about D-03, a model consisting of tropical leaves but still looking firm and straight like geographical forms. Ofelia says it was a feeling of satisfaction and inspiration when someone from a different corner of the world liked and ordered the model she had created. In general, the feeling inspires designers to go on designing new models. Here is what the director at Imageman Architecture & Interior, Mikayel Karsayn, has done. Up to now, he has already created almost 30 unrepeatable and creative models and named them not less creatively: Dragon Scale, Symphony, Dilong, Arcada, Python, and so on. Below are represented some of the models created by him.

How Hokspet succeeded

How Hokspet succeeded

Hokspet is a Russian brand producing holders for toilet paper. Pavel Chekhovskiy is the creator of this unique product.

The idea to make holders was born when Pavel first saw such a holder on his trip to Norway. He could not buy it anywhere, the holder was not sold in stores, but it sunk into his soul so deep that he decided to make it himself. Despite the seeming simplicity, it turned out to be extremely difficult to make such holders. Typically, carpentry supplies are not designed for logs of this section because the furniture they make consists of thinner parts. However, after a month of work and a fair amount of carpentry equipment bought in vain, Pavel finally managed to make the first holder. It cost him a lot of effort and a huge amount of damaged wood. As a result, Hokspet turned out to be perfect - reliable, ecologically friendly, convenient and stunning. The top is convenient to use to put a mobile phone on it, which usually has nowhere to go in the toilet. Pavel’s first clients were his friends who really liked Hokspet. Then Hokspet became more and more popular. When the website and Instagram profile were available, Pavel got a message from an interior designer who wanted to use Hokspet in his bathroom design. This is why he did a 3D model of Hokspet and uploaded it at Zeel Project, where he got an opportunity to increase awareness among designers. "After I presented Hokspet in 3D at Zeel Project, I got a number of requests from designers and their clients, who also fell in love with Hokspet at first glance," Pavel said and continued: "I want to say

Lundbergs Möbler (Möbler means types of furniture)

Lundbergs Möbler (Möbler means types of furniture)

Our Slogan: Best at circular wooden table solutions.
Our mission: We want to be the leading supplier of wooden tables while helping the market make informed choices and create circular flows of tables. In this way, we want to help reduce the greenhouse effect.
Circular life span: A table isn't just a table. Some tables have the task of lowering the noise level in a space, some have to withstand tough conditions in, for example, schools, and some tables have the task of creating spontaneous and relaxed meetings. Unlike many other types of furniture, a table not only has the function of offering comfort or beautiful design. Based on that insight, we've created a range that works and is tailored to the environment in which the tables are meant to function. That is why our tables are available in over 3.000 variants and designed for a circular life span. This gives you the freedom to create the table that fits your particular project, which also means that both you and we contribute to producing furniture that lasts longer. Both to the eye and in its intended environment. Together, we can contribute to more circular furniture flows and a more sustainable approach to furniture. With love for the craft and respect for the materials, we make solid, large wooden tables with much attention to detail. Our wooden tables and wooden chairs meet the strict requirements placed on public environments and are certified with Möbelfakta. We buy our wood raw material from Central Europe, always with the requirement that the wood be FSC-certified. As a logical consequence of our love and need for wood, we've also become a supporting partner for The Swedish Society for Nature

Ateliers Jean Nouvel completes pair of inclined skyscrapers in Paris

Ateliers Jean Nouvel completes pair of inclined skyscrapers in Paris

French design studios The 180- and 125-meter-tall Tours Duo buildings were created by Jean Nouvel to "create a character" for eastern Paris. The two skyscrapers, which are intended to serve as a landmark for eastern Paris, house 139 rooms of hotel accommodations and 97,000 square meters of business space. Philippe Starck, a French designer, created the interiors. According to Jean Nouvel, Eastern Paris is gradually coming into focus, consolidating and taking shape, and completing and changing an incomplete context.
The goal of this endeavor is to construct the top of the mountain, the century's apex. Additionally, it involves developing a personality or singularity that is connected to the reality of the location, that highlights its unique beauty, and that depends on it to create and enhance the area's allure. The pair of skyscrapers are situated away from a central plaza and were constructed next to the Périphérique ring road and a sizable railroad line. The skyscrapers were tilted by Nouvel to be more visible from the Seine River, the Périphérique, and a number of other prominent locations in the city. In his opinion, the location does not qualify as a landmark from the Avenue de France's perspective. The Bibliothèque Nationale de France's walkway does not provide a view of it. A little incline may easily bring the towers into view while allowing us to play with the reflections of the railway landscape in the south facade, which would be clearly visible from the ring boulevard and the boulevard du Général Jean Simon. After the Tour Montparnasse, Tour Duo 1 is the second-tallest skyscraper in

Civic Architects converts 1930s town hall buildings into shoe museum

Civic Architects converts 1930s town hall buildings into shoe museum

Circular openings sliced into an existing brick wall provide views through to exhibition spaces inside this shoe museum, which Amsterdam-based Civic Architects designed in Waaliwijk, the Netherlands. The Schoenenkwartier Museum presents the history of shoe design and production in Waaliwijk, which for centuries was an important center for traditional craft within the North Brabant region. Civic Architects was tasked with converting a cluster of heritage-listed buildings to house a collection of 12,000 objects, along with other museum facilities, a cafe, and laboratories for design and prototyping. The Raadhuis ensemble was designed by architect Alexander Kropholler to accommodate functions associated with the original town hall. It was built in phases in the 1930s and expanded in the 1980s with the addition of an office block. The Shoe Museum extends the principles applied by Kropholler in his original design, with the original layout of open arcades and a small kiosk complemented by new arched windows framed in thick oak. Civic Architects said that they applied subtly subversive design details to nuance Alexander Kropholler's overly restrictive and rigid architectural views. As such, the addition was not a fashionable or contradictory icon but a fresh new chapter in the historically layered story of the building. The museum occupies a prominent site on Raadhuisplein square, from which its main public functions – including the cafe and open workshops – are visible through the large, arched openings. The building can be entered from the square or from an adjacent arcade through large pivoting or sliding doors. The entrances lead to a generously proportioned foyer featuring a brick path that makes it feel like an extension of the public square. The central foyer connects with the rest of the open-plan

Ingenhoven Architects unveils pair of plant-covered skyscrapers in Tokyo

Ingenhoven Architects unveils pair of plant-covered skyscrapers in Tokyo

German studio Ingenhoven Architects has completed a pair of skyscrapers, including Japan's tallest residential building, which is covered in planting on the lower levels. Set on either side of Tokyo's tallest building – Toranomon Hills Tower designed by Japanese studio Nihon Sekkei – the pair of skyscrapers have a similar aesthetic, with one containing apartments and one office space. The taller 220-meter-high skyscraper contains 54 stories of apartments, making it Japan's tallest residential tower, while a 185-meter-high tower contains 36 stories of office space.
Designed by Ingenhoven Architects, the skyscrapers are connected by bridges to create a greenery-covered first-floor podium. Ingenhoven Architects founder Christoph Ingenhoven said that the core aim was to design two new towers which integrate well with the surrounding neighborhood, respecting the taller central tower while presenting their own contemporary urban response. And to give something back to the city by offering a green, publicly accessible plateau at the first above-ground level – a place of balance with zones of calm amid the rush of this large city. Informed by the green space surrounding the nearby Atago Shrine, Ingenhoven Architects created a series of terraces on the lower floors at the base of each tower, which contain 154 full-sized trees. Alongside the trees, the studio wrapped the lowest seven floors of the office building and the eleventh floor of the residential building in hedgerows, in a similar move to an office it designed in Düsseldorf that contains five miles of hedges on its facade. Ingenhoven explained that they had integrated urban green into the project, which was not very common in Tokyo, to create a green, lively, publicly accessible plateau at the first above-ground level. The plateau was reserved for pedestrians
