SLIDE WOOD FLOOR design Daniele Lago I believe in design as a discipline that listens to the vibrations of the world and tries to propose some answers, creating an impact of positive change. Slide was born from this kind of attentiveness. For the first time in the world of flooring, the end user, the interior designer, or whomever can decide on the design of their own floors. It gets you involved, it invites you to participate. Participation being one of the vibrations of the current age. The concept is based on the idea of a rectangle cut in two by a diagonal that generates two rectangular trapeziums. These combine with each other in numerous ways, generating countless configurations. The Slide collection is composed of three trapeziums (module 1, module 2, and module 3). The shapes of the trapeziums were designed with the intention of generating a whole that is balanced yet always different. Anyway in which you combine the trapeziums, they will create an “intriguing” pattern, even if you use just one module. To give a single example, if you put module 2 together with module 3, what you get is a floor with an irregular pattern, generating an impression of causality of forms which seem to be many but in reality are only two. ---------------------- Credo nel design come disciplina che ascolti le vibrazioni del mondo e tenti di dare delle risposte creando un impatto di cambiamento positivo. Slide nasce da questo tipo di consapevolezza. Per la prima volta nel mondo dei pavimenti si dà la possibilità al fruitore finale, all’interior designer o a chicchessia di decidere il design del proprio pavimento. Lo si coinvolge, lo si fa partecipe. Partecipazione, appunto, una vibrazione di questa epoca. L’idea alla base del concept è un rettangolo tagliato in due da una diagonale che genera due trapezi rettangoli che combinati fra di loro in modalità diverse generano moltissime configurazioni. La collezione Slide sarà composta da 3 trapezi (modulo 1, modulo 2, modulo 3). Le forme dei tre trapezi sono state progettate con l’intento di generare un insieme equilibrato, ma sempre diverso. In qualunque modo si combinino i trapezi, essi formeranno un design sempre “interessante”, pur con un singolo modulo. In un solo caso, quando si mettono assieme il modulo 2 con il modulo 3, si dà vita ad un pavimento aperiodico, che genera una sensazione di casualità di forme che apparentemente sembrano molte, ma in realtà sono solamente due.

The Ultimate Wine-Pairing Infographic

I’ve never understood brussel sprouts. Oh, they’re delicious, roasted in a cast iron pan with big hunks of garlic. But I’ve tried reds, and I’ve tried whites. Neither seems to pair all that well. And wouldn’t you know it? Brussel sprouts are a footnote on this incredible infographic: Foods that …
