European design and architecture firm, The Fundamental Group, focuses on holistic living and lifestyle– and their designs and products embody it all. From being recognized in international publications such as Elle, Vogue and Brigitte, this small group is getting their beautiful work out there.

The “Atlas” table is one of their amazing oak/smoked oak tables with a brass base that makes a huge room statement. The inspiration behind it are the Atlas Mountains, that border the Sahara desert. With their integral math skills, the creative wood blocks are put together with a beautiful juxtaposition and wondrously seamless integration.

Dynamic Home for Bees by Atelierd

Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-1 Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-2 Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-3 Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-4 Dynamic-Home-For-Bees-by-atelierd-5

Sitting at 215 square feet, atelierd created a great looking “Bee Pavilion” in Alsace, France, with hexagonal structures. These geometric pieces are covered by a roof that allows breeze yet blocks direct sunlight out of the middle portion.

Overall, the area is dynamic – and not to mention visually stimulating. Each pod has a unique core with various textures, geometry and colors. Some are left with nothing inside so as to allow some visual transparency, and others are created with the idea of a place for the bees. Built in 2012, the home is transformable to accommodate humans that might like to repurpose some pieces as furniture and enjoy the natural buzzing surrounding the pavilion.

Street art and furniture in public places tends to be the last thing on the minds of public planners. Many artists have been branching out into more creative and innovative ways of putting inviting and interesting designs for the general public. Carmela Bogman and Rogier Martin of The Netherlands have come up with an interactive design for the people.

By utilizing a hydraulic system, users can determine which pieces to bring up and determine their own seated or standing heights to set the modular blocks at. There are three retractable pieces that come up to function as a lounge area, eating spot or meeting place – or just lower them all down to be flush with the cement to keep the flow of traffic moving.
