Plugless sink is exactly that, a sink without a plughole. To get rid of the grey water we have to tip the water out. By doing so we become more conscious of how much water we are using and mainly throwing away. This sink shows the value of water through its volume and promotes water re-usage. I was inspired by the old traditional bowls for domestic water usage; this sink allows to use the water in a more traditional and, I believe, much more enjoyable and pleasant way/Maja Ganszyniec

Karl Zinsmaster, Bjorn Ricke, Summer Covell, and Travis Bookler have been collaborating on a series they call Constructs. Investigating the "legitimacy of material, icon and author," design classics are remade in humbler materials that evoke the shop: Castiglioni's Arco lamp is interpreted as a cinder block, a work lamp, conduit and paint; Le Corbusier's Petite Lounge is reconstructed from rebar and Quikrete packages; the classic Noguchi table is replicated in Oriented Strand Board; and a historical Mondrian painting is remade in ceramic tile samples.

German design team ding3000 present a new animal-inspired collection of furniture, lighting and accessories called Animal Tales at Salone Satellite in Milan. The collection features a sofa inspired by an Afghan hound, a vase that imitates a baby cuckoo, a floorlight resembling a giraffe and a sideboard based on a mule/ding3000
The lamp is designed to hold a stack of books and the designers are releasing a limited edition of 99 of the lamps that come complete with a hand-selected and signed set of books. Lamp OOO is the first collaboration between italian architect Sergio Maninno (1969) and dutch designer Jan Habraken (1975). Sergio Mannino started his career in italy wit a crossbreed between art and architecture. With praise by late Ettore Sottsass Mannino created his first furniture concepts at the Postdesign-Memphis gallery in Milan.
