The Cero Stool by Brian Steendÿk

Australian designer Brian Steendÿk created the Cero Stool for Omvivo. The stools are roto moulded polyethylene and are UV stabalised with a glossy gel-coated finish.

Brian Steendÿk says:

The streamlined styling of Cero references our busy ‘jet age’ lifestyles and stylistically the cowling of a jet engine. The external form of the Cero is a distinct circular donut with its associated void, and is both aesthetically pleasing and structurally innovative. The unique nibble in the top of the chair has been ergonomically designed to encourage good posture by tilting the pelvis forward to help transfer the weight of the head and torso to the bones of the pelvis and hip.

Aleph by Foster & Partners begins construction

Phase one of The Aleph in Buenos Aires – a new luxury residential development designed by Foster & Partners, containing 57 apartments over nine floors – has been launched.

Taking inspiration from Buenos Aires’ traditional ‘casa chorizo’ houses and the architectural vernacular of courtyards and open terraces, a number of the apartments feature double-height balconies. The residences are designed to take advantage of the city’s pleasant climate by blurring the boundaries between inside and outside space – reinventing the traditional courtyards within each apartment in the form of an ‘external room’. Each dual-aspect apartment is enclosed by glazed panels and bronzed aluminium sun screens, balancing the need for solar shading with daylight and cooling breezes. In the apartments, exposed vaulted ceilings have been incorporated to enhance the sense of space and height.

As part of a wider masterplan for the Puerto Madero district, phase one of The Aleph will be completed with two further residential blocks. Continuing the courtyard theme, these will be arranged around two central gardens in a T-shaped formation, enlivened by a fringe of shops at the base.
