A flat water-bottle for your pocket| Denmark’s gravity-defying cantilevered museum | Glass Art for stylish urbane decor| and more


We spoke of equanimity last week and here we have a cover story that absolutely fits the bill. S+PS Architects’ design for this home is a well-thought-out exercise in reviving the charm of yesteryears in today’s context; and very successfully indeed. Their design is contemporised so it blends in comfortably in the now, whilst evoking a subtle rootedness.

When a designer considers the humane approach above all else, the design is invariably a success! Sensitivity in design is seen in the Glifo writing and drawing tools that are designed to empower neurologically challenged children. They address multiple brain-related pathologies in a very gentle and disarming manner and succeed at the tough goal of rehabilitation of these patients.

Our other stories for you include glass art by Dubai-based Anjali Srinivasan’s glass art studio ChoChoMa; gravity-defying cantilever for a rock museum; young photographer Ganji’’s lens-scapes in magnificent Iran and renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma’s latest ‘slice’ of high-rise architecture. Don’t forget to read about the ingeniously designed Memobottle. Wonder why no one thought of this earlier!

Enjoy the issue.
