Tom Dixon‘s Fresh Fat chair is woven from Provista, a type of recyclable plastic. The Fresh Fat chair glistens like glass, but with more fluidity and less breakability. The industrial process is subverted, as the extrusion machine is deconstructed to allow humans to take charge. The hot, fresh, fat polymer pumps out of the machine and is manipulated and woven by hand into primitive shapes. The Provista plastic takes on a glass like clarity as it solidifies into extraordinary constructions. Each object is unique and precious, and challenges the preconception of plastic as a throwaway material.

The culmination of years of research on the way people work today illustrates that Rockwell Unscripted is anything but unplanned.
As mobility lifts limitations on where work is done, organizations are challenged to create engaging environments that draw workers to the office.
British product and interior designer Lee Broom transformed a row of 3 disused shops in Milan to create ‘The Department Store’.
It’s an incredibly accurate reconstruction of an ideal (and surreal) department store, Lee invited visitors on an immersive journey through a cinematic pastiche of a store across two floors divided in sections such as millinery, beauty, perfumery, bookstore, wine shop, accessories and so on.
