The highly-anticipated reveal sees 100,000 square meters of shimmering yellow fabric wrap a floating dock that connects various points on Italy’s Lake Iseo. Undulating with the movement of the waves, visitors can now experience ‘the floating piers’ as they walk from Sulzano to Monte Isola and to the Island of San Paolo, which it completely encircles. The 3 kilometer-long walkway extends clear across the water, with surrounding mountains offering a bird’s-eye view of a golden network of passageways that lead in and around the town. The fabric continues along 1.5 kilometers of pedestrian streets in Sulzano and Peschiera Maraglio. (via Designboom)

Henrique de França is a Brazilian artist who lives and works in São Paulo. He draws and paints touching, delicate works, in black and white. The universe which he depicts is governed by a constant melancholy, timeless characters, who seem motionless in time, pensive, in the grip of internal reflections. With the help of his pencil, the artist adds to this all a great delicacy, which gives a unique and sublime look to his works. (via Fubiz)

Great stuff.

Italian companies Dolce&Gabbana and Smeg have collaborated to create 100 limited-edition refrigerators that celebrate the decorative richness of Sicilian traditions. Six artists took the FAB28’s sinuous lines and nostalgically retro form and hand-painted them with images the reference the island like lemons, the trinacia symbol, cart wheels, medieval knights, and battle scenes. All these pay a tribute to the sicilian cart, or carretto in italian, that is also part of the exhibition held at the Metropol Theater in viale piave 24, during Milan design week 2016.

Lorraine Loots, an expert at creating tiny art “for ants,” is back with a new series of mind-bogglingly small (and beautiful) paintings of animals, space, and her favorite books.

She plans to create 100 mini paintings and drawings throughout 2015, drawing them on themed days of the week – “Microcosm Mondays,” “Tiny Tuesdays,” “Fursdays” and “Free Fridays.” (via Twitika)
