There is no shortage of lounge classics, but hardly any of them is so fresh and saucy as the Satyr. There it stands, bold and robust – and that really is important as this is not a chair for formal sitting, but an invitation to relax, lean back and put your feet up. In Satyr, For Use not even try to create something extraordinary, grabbing attention piece, but an armchair that is subtle and comfy. Paradoxical as it sounds, Satyr is the expression of a timeless attitude: casual but demanding unconventionality.
For me, the Satyr is a really cute chair, the ducky look-alike shape really caught my eye at first glance!

British designer Tom Dixon is undoubtedly famous for his love of copper, one of the oldest metal used by man. His Copper Shade pendant light is already a modern classic. So it comes as no surprise that fold-up bike brand, Brompton collaboration with Tom Dixon to develop a limited edition prototype copper plated bicycle. The precise process involved a base nickel plating to offer a 'key' for the thin copper layer on top, followed by an electrophoretic lacquer coating of all the frame parts to seal the copper finish and add further protection from the elements.

A very smart & brilliant advertising idea for BMW M3 Coupe at Hamburg Airport- a 50x2m light wall in the middle of the arrival hall. To portray a car that exceed limits, advertising agency Serviceplan created a billboard that exceed limits. By designing a headline out of half letters, the super shiny floor reflect the other half. As a result, BMW doubled the media space for free.
