Sticks, designed by Arik Levy for Vibia, is a linear lighting system that can connect floor to wall, wall to ceiling, and ceiling to air in endless configurations. From leading the eye down a corridor, filling a space with a graphic chandelier or brightening a dark corner, the bars can be linked in spans of up to 6.5 metres.

Hotel 48° Nord, designed by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter, is an ecotourism retreat in Alsace, France, consisting of 14 cabins that dot the landscape, amidst trees and wild grasses. Created from untreated chestnut (sourced from the nearby hillside) the cabins are minimal and rustic, with built-in furniture and large glass panels to frame the views – all served by a central hub that houses a restaurant and wellness facilities.

Kata, designed by Altherr Désile Park for Arper, is a lounge chair with sustainability at its core. The cushions use a custom 3D knit textile, created from recycled consumer plastic. Even the varnish on the wood is water-based so the whole chair can be recycled. As ever with Arper, the chair comes in a myriad of colours and finishes, suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
'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.'
