The Latest From MINIMAL

MINIMAL has submitted their latest project and it is incredible.  Marvel chose MINIMAL for the movie, Transformers 3, to design the kitchen of one of the main characters…the bad guy!

Designer: Stefano Venier

Description:  MINIMAL’s cutting edge design featuring a high tech sliding countertop was the perfect fit for Ryan’s, contemporary kitchen in Transformers 3 – Dark of the Moon. With unique Italian sense of aesthetics and commitment to custom design, MINIMAL tailored a kitchen space that perfectly portrays the character’s personality: provocative for its sensual lightness and intimidating for its clean lines.

Designed by Stefano Venier, the kitchen stems out as a full-relief sculpture in the middle of Ryan`s enviable apartment. The focal point of the room is the island, a unique example of technology, design and functionality. Through an electronic movement, the hand crafted Thermo Oak top can be either opened up to serve as an entertainment table or closed to hide the brushed stainless steel countertop, the soldered sink and the retractable faucet.

Technical characteristics:

Doors: White Glossy lacquer, 22 mm (3/4”) thick with 30° top edge

Sliding Counter: Thermo Oak with electronic movement (counter thickness 8cm = 3 1/8”)

Counters: Hand crafted brushed stainless steel, 3 mm (1/8”) thick with soldered sinks and retractable faucet

Appliances: Miele

Hood: Custom by Minimal

Open Shelving: Thin stainless steel shelving system 6mm (1/4”) thick with Thermo oak back panels

Stack It Up

The kiosk is Aesop’s  first venture into the American market and was designed by Brooklyn architect Jeremy Barbour of Tacklebox.

The  kiosk is located at Grand Central and is made from over 1000 copies of the New York Times.  I love the Walt Whitman quote.

Isn’t this an inventive way to use old newspapers?

I love the texture.

Here are some more inventive uses for old newspapers.

Brick Weave House/Studio Gang

Brick Weave House by Chicago architectural firm, Studio Gang offers an amazing masonry screen which creates privacy for the glass-walled house.  I love how it filters sunlight into geometric patterns on the walls and floors.

Color My World

Marcio Kogan was asked to create an inexpensive and quick to build solution for an empty lot in Brazil.  The result was the colorful Decameron. The project is a ‘sharp reuse of shipping containers’ and a ‘confident use of color.’
