IL SUONO DELL’ABBANDONO by Davide Guldoni
to give to: photographers and architects friends with a dark side
The first book of (we hope) a long series was presented Sunday 14th December in Reggio Emilia (Italy).
The title of the book’s title might not sound so christmassy, BUT if you look at it from another point of view you’ll find it very interesting and appealing to you and many of your friends and family. This book not only is more than a year of work, but it’s also a way to give dignity and attention to all those architectures that are considered “dead” in absence of human activities, but instead they are very much alive and have a lot to tell.
Davide Guldoni is a very talented photographer and graphic artist living in Italy and definitely kicking some asses!

BLOCKITECTURE by James Paulius
to give to: single architects, architects with kids, all the bob the builder wannabes
Produced by Areaware, a Brooklyn company who highlights the work of american designers with irony and sense of humor.
“Hard to get much blockier than Brutalist architecture, but the hard thinkers of Areaware were up to the challenge. Sculpture meets cityscape meets haptic fun in this set of nesting hand-painted blocks. Designer James Paulius’ intent was to create a timeless toy that challenges the user’s creativity and understanding of physical laws.”

LessIS by Maria Jennifer Carew
to give to: minimalist, fashionist, geek, 3D print addicted
LessIS is a collection of pendants born from the idea of simplifying as much as possible the concept of necklace. The pendant has a crucial role, more than the chain that supports it.
Mixing this new point of view, Jennifer has experimented her intuitions with a good dose of “simplicity” (or ability to synthesize, one of the designer’s skill we love more) and the 3D print using materials such as bronze, brass and nylon. And the results are some young, iconic and fun accessories that draw a new way to wear them.
Let’s do some shop: from 11 euros HERE on Detaildesignstore, HERE on Fulfildesign or @ Gallery on the Move (via Elba, 30 – MI) !
