Shaped by ocean waves and gently bleached by the sun, driftwood brings a soft, relaxed feel to any modern space. This teak collection from Tikamoon includes seating, tables and storage that evoke simpler times with their organic lines and honest construction.

Solaz Los Cabos Hotel by Sordo Madaleno Arquitectos lies on the peninsula of Baja California, a semi-desert environment overlooking the Sea of Cortes. Apartments, restaurants and spa areas follow the natural topology of the coast and descend in terraces down to the long-lined beach club on the sand. Natural materials, green roofing and planting with species native to the area all ground the wide, modern spaces into the local landscape.

Keyboard, designed by Enrico Corelli for PLH, pays homage to this home computerisation with buttons that emulate computer keys. Available in various gridded combinations in micro-sanded aluminium with matt-black keys.
'No two materials are alike. No two sites on earth are alike. No two buildings have the same purpose. The purpose, the site, the material determine the shape. Nothing can be reasonable or beautiful unless it’s made by one central idea, and the idea sets every detail. A building is alive, like a man.'
