Frecciamela - Wall Fruit Holder

This is something that really catch our attention because of it creativity. This is Frecciamela and maybe it is the most unusual wall-mounted fruit bow you ever seen. The design of this modern fruit holder is by Nicola Loi and Andrea Maffezzoni. Andrea Maffezzoni was born in 1988 in Italy. The shape of Frecciamela is like an arrow. The tip and the back of the arrow design are saved as only the body is curved so it can hold general size fruits. The Frecciamela is made to be fixed at the wall.

The body of the arrow can be ordered in two variants one is acrylic stone and the other is aluminum. As for the tip of the arrow it comes only in aluminum. As not every wall is perfectly clean and not the fruits to make stains on the wall there is transparent acrylic plate behind the arrow. The plate is 2mm and is about 6mm from the wall leaving enough space for the fruits to be positioned. If you use this to store your fruits for day life or use it only as decoration you won't be wrong. Frecciamela is perfect for both of them and will fit in every modern design interior.

Table by Elda Bellone

This is a table design by Elda Bellone. And not just a table but tAble because the table is able to fit in various situations and in different user needs. Elda Bellone was born in Teramo in 1971, now she live in Florence where she attended the Faculty of Architecture and graduating in 2000. The idea is very simple but the result is very modernistic and functional. What is brilliant is that you actually get two tables that occupy the space of one. 

The base table is the red table that is the bigger of both. The smaller one is transparent. This table is fitted on top of the bigger red table. This way you can arrange them to your needs if you need space and need one table just stack them, otherwise split them and you get two big tables. The usability and design aren’t affected from the way the tables are used. They look great and can be used as one table or as two different tables. However when the tables are combined we have more modern and finished design that is very eye-catching. The material used for production of these tables is strong and you don't have to worry what you put on top of them.

Modern Interior

Today's interior design more than ever, uses elements from different cultures and eras. Mixing leads to a blurring of boundaries between traditional styles. Even more difficult is to separate them from modern style and to determine its most characteristic features. This is what we will discuss in this article. Feature of modern style are clean lines and smooth, reflective surfaces without complicated details. This does not mean that the atmosphere in the home must be stiff and cold. Many fresh items and interesting design gives comfort and vitality of the interior. If you want your home to be decorated in contemporary style, you should pay attention to several key elements:

  • Colors - Modern design is dominated by neutral colors. The walls are preferred in earth-pastel hues and pure white. One or two accents in the room, however, must be alive and in vibrant colors. This may be decorative objects, sofa in the grass-green or even one wall of the room painted in a bold color line. The emphasis, however, must be measured, because the basic idea of contemporary style to create a feeling of simplicity.
  • Metal elements - Pure shine of the metal replaces the traditional decorative elements in modern decor. Most modern furniture metal parts are made of steel, nickel or chrome. Inox full reign in the kitchen and replaced all previously used materials and colors.
  • Fabrics - Silk and tulle are combined in perfect harmony with the smooth lines of metallic elements. Linen and wool are also preferred because of the natural atmosphere they create. Interesting accent in interior are wallpapers from textiles that add depth and texture to the room.
  • Wood  - The most characteristic for tree in contemporary design is its extreme colors, too bright or too dark shades. Combine bravely wooden objects and furniture in different styles, but try to be supported in a single color. This will create a stylish atmosphere of home.
  • Lightening  - Lighting is an important element of modern design because it highlights certain accents in the room. Instead of the traditional shade are preferred lights embedded in walls, floors and cabinets. They are usually made of metal elements and complement the shine of other flat surfaces in the interior.

Airbus Concept 2050

Welcome to the future, the year is 2050 and the Air Transport is presented by Airbus. This is the concept plane from Airbus and there perspective of aircrafts and air transport at the near future. One of the most eye-catching characteristic of the design of the new planes is their cabin. And not only what’s inside the cabin (we will talk about this later) but the material and the transparency of it. 

The material used for creating the cabin is eco friendly made from plants and in the same time super functional and filled with technologies. The Airbus 2050 plane cabin is made from bionic structure that is formed like a bird bones. It allows great panoramic view on all the top of the cabin and in the same this offers a great strength at the points needed. Every passenger will be able to select the air temperature and pureness for his position and also shade the roof to prevent sunlight or no for great view. Airbus is following their policy for future planes that need to be more and more eco friendly , the must use less fuel male less noise and be more efficient. But that's not all that is interesting, the interior design of the plane is also marvelous. Airbus abandoned seat classes and now uses zones in their airplanes. 

There will be several zones with different purpose. There will be conferment rooms, bar and even virtual golf course. Also there will be and “vitalizing zone” which will be all about relaxing and wellbeing. In this zone the passengers will be treated will aromatherapy, antioxidant with vitamin enriched air and moonlights. We hope this comes reality soon enough so we can see this piece of art in reality.
