Among the giants of Danish Design, Verner Panton established a unique reputation for his exuberant originality and tireless experimentation. Panton created lamps, furniture and textiles – and was also a sought after interior designer. Although he was at the forefront of mid-century Danish Modern, Panton’s contribution was anything but mainstream. He enthusiastically embraced new materials, he splashed with a bold colour palette, and he playfully imbued many of his sculptural creations with a strong graphical expression – without ever compromising on quality or workmanship. Panton’s iconic works have emerged as contemporary design classics – as strikingly inventive now as they were 50 years ago.
The revolutions that really change the essence of things are the subtle and almost impalpable ones. It sounds like an oxymoron, yet the changes that transform tradition one tiny step at a time without distorting it are the ones that lead to big changes in the universe of interior design – changes that keep reinterpreting tradition until the only thing that remains is the pleasurable flavor of memory. Lolli e Memmoli’s 20 years of history have been revolutionary. From 1993 to today, these two Milanese artists have embraced one single type of illumination – lamps in Bohemian crystal. They have led them from the past into the present, entirely revamping their character without ever abandoning their timeless beauty. The Lolli e Memmoli lamps evoke constant memory in-between the lines of their contemporaneity. In order to fully perceive this “subtle revolution” it is necessary to take a step back in time.

China loves European luxury products. Therefore, to increase its brand awareness and to win new customers, the German safe manufacturer Stockinger participated in an exhibition in China for the first time this year. Stockinger joined other luxury brands at the TOP MARQUES Fair in Shanghai last October and introduced its products to the Chinese customers. For this purpose they brought one of their best and most luxurious products to the fair. Besides showing the Stockinger for Bentley safe, the new BRABUS SV12 safe was shown to the audience. This new safe which was designed in cooperation with the car tuner Brabus is definitely one of the most exciting safes Stockinger has ever built. Following the Brabus’ motto “expect the unexpected” Stockinger has created a unique product which harmoniously combines secure technology and luxurious elegance of design. High-gloss black lacquer and a full brass handle with Brabus logo give this safe an elegant touch. But it’s the interior what makes this safe so special.
