Picks of the Week

Picks of the Week

From an unlikely, yet beautiful bank installation and a 3D printed clutch inspired by a city to a chair that is grown and not made, these are the VISI team’s top picks of the week.

1. DEM inc. Wildlife Bank Installation 

“What better way to take the boring out of trips to the bank than with an amazingly immersive wildlife installation like this one done for a Taipei bank,” says Assistant Editor Tracy Greenwood.

2. Clutch by Odo Fioravanti for Maison 203

“Super stylish and slick, the 3D printed Bern clutch by industrial designer Odo Fioravanti is the handbag replica of the Swiss city Bern, which has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site,” says Content Producer Michaela Stehr.

5. Gavin Munro’s Grown Furniture

“Instead of growing trees and chopping them up in order to make chairs, Grown Furniture came up with the unique idea to cut out the wasteful process and grow the chair quite literally from from seed to sitting,” says Freelance Junior Content Producer Cheri Morris.

7. Copper Globes by Luke Calder 

“There is just something so gorgeous about the minimalism and the lack of borderlines and words on these copper-plated globes,” says Account Manager Cecilia du Plessis. “The designer wanted to trigger an appreciation for the world as a whole and I think we need to do more of that.”
