Sculptural Sensations by RAIN

Beautifully Bold

Sculptural Sensations by RAINSao Paolo based architect Ricardo Innecco and product designer Mariana Ramos work together as RAIN, where they have created a collection of furniture, lighting and accessories which showcase the striking beauty of minimalist sculptural shapes.

There is monumental boldness in the Arco lamps and Chains wall sculpture, in stark contrast to the super minimalist Ferrao wall light, which looks almost like a "slash" painting by Lucio Fontana. We also like the sculptural quality of the Babel tables, the Horizon bench's play on perspective as well as the surreal humour of the Swimming Pool tables and the Spheres chest of drawers. Sculptural style has never looked so chic.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
