Sweet de­signs sport­ing candy stripes

Swis­shouse Rossa

Da­vide Mac­ullo Ar­chi­tects col­lab­o­rated with French artist Daniel Buren to add a pep­per­mint twist to the fa­cade of this curvy-walled house in Graubün­den, Switzer­land. Mac­ullo, who is also the owner, brought in Buren – known for ar­chi­tec­tural in­ter­ven­tions that of­ten in­volve adding bold, con­trast­ing stripes to his­toric spa­ces and build­ings – to paint a lin­ear pat­tern of red and green onto the tim­ber cladding. A cheer­ful sur­prise in a ru­ral set­ting, the house sits in an idyl­lic val­ley, be­tween a rocky riverbed and a for­est-cov­ered moun­tain. Against a back­drop of tra­di­tional struc­tures, it feels like a cas­tle dropped in from the pages of a pop art fairy­tale. mac­ullo.com, daniel­bu­ren.com

Filigrana lamps

The whim­si­cal candy-cane pat­tern that adorns this col­lec­tion of Vene­tian-glass sus­pen­sion lamps is cre­ated us­ing the filigrana tech­nique, de­vel­oped by Mu­rano glass-blow­ers in the 16th cen­tury. De­signed by Es­tab­lished & Sons co-founder Se­bas­tian Wrong, who re­cently re­turned to the brand as de­sign di­rec­tor, the lights are made in four shapes and three colours. For each ver­sion of Filigrana, the colour canes are rolled di­rectly into the sur­face while the glass is still in its mal­leable state, cre­at­ing a unique pat­tern on each acid-etched lamp. “It’s lit­er­ally eye candy,” says Wrong. es­tab­lishedand­sons.com

Paul Smith

Although he’s best known for his stripey fash­ion and fab­rics, Bri­tish de­signer Paul Smith has ap­plied his sig­na­ture mo­tif to ev­ery­thing from lamps to Land Rovers. Among the brands he has col­lab­o­rated with are Ma­haram, An­gle­poise, Cap­pellini, Evian, Pen­guin Clas­sics and Burton Snow­boards, to name a few. Still go­ing strong af­ter nearly five decades, Smith worked with Porsche this year, wrap­ping a 1965 Porsche 911 race car in chunky, hor­i­zon­tal bands of colour. Ahead of the 2018 World Cup, he also launched a col­lec­tion with ath­letic la­bel New Bal­ance. The line in­cludes striped-up ver­sions of the brand’s pop­u­lar Made in UK 576 sneak­ers, the MIUK One x Paul Smith foot­ball boot and three lim­ited-edi­tion balls (in­clud­ing Furon De­stroy, shown here). paul­smith.com
