Industry Insight – from Hospitality furniture to Prison Cell

HOTEL DESIGNS – LINK

From designing tableware, to large scale office furniture systems. Rock Galpin talks about one of the most challenging projects to date, in a private talk, at Dubai Design Week.

ME Dubai Hotel by Zaha Hadid | Review

ME Dubai Hotel has just launched. This is the legacy project for the prolific, global architect, Zaha Hadid. See my exclusive review here for Hotel Designs Magazine.

This is the only example of architecture where Zaha Hadid herself also designed the Interior.  It  is  a  testiment  to  a  designer  with  a  vision  to  push  boundaries  in  typology,  material usage  and  fabrication. It’s quite something.

Living clothing that breathes!

Living clothing
Take a look. The shape of clothing to come.

Ironically skin on skin. A beautiful biomimicking concept which I have no doubt is one of the new level of research projects taking us one step closer to our realisation and appreciation that our natural world holds genius solutions that we can mimic. These secrets have always been there, we have simply just not fully understood them or had the technological means by which to more closely explore them, perhaps now we do. We as humans contain genius solutions, we simply just need to understand at nano scale to progress. Rock Galpin
