Standing between geometry and decoration. This is the 1970s work by French designers Kim Moltzer and Jean-Paul Barray.

Their furniture and lightning designed under the label of ECFI represent the greatest time of the French decorative interior design. Working mainly in the pure steel and aluminum, Kim Moltzer and Jean-Paul Barray`s pieces are similar to the furniture by Maria Pergay, Michel Boyer or Francois Monnet.

But Moltzer and Barray are a little bit different. Their visual language is based on the connection of the strictly geometric forms related to the high-tech aesthetic with luxury materials and use. All three pieces featuring here have these qualities. The bookshelves was designed only by Moltzer.

From online stationary store Present&Correct there are three very nice unusual calendars from 1960s.

In their design we can see influence of the new plastic period of that time, as well as inspiration by abstract painting and sculpture.

Lausanne based designers Camille Blin, Arnault Weber and Emmanuel Mbessé have launched their own furniture line called ACE.

Their first collection they have presented at this year Salone Satellite exhibition at Salone del Mobile in Milan. It is based on the use of the solid ash wood and the simplest joinery production.

As they say: "We streamline the production as much as possible by reducing mechanical interventions and by exploiting the wood products available from the suppliers. The chosen wood is a local ash either solid or in glulam pannels. This choice, primarily aesthetic also permits to bring out a wood normally rarely used, unlike most resinous woods. We then focussed on the production tools available in an average woodworking shop. The tools available are: a circular saw, a panel saw, a miter saw, a vertical shaper, a router, a drill, a plane, a planing machine. This is where our aesthetics were born: the lines will be geometrical, stretched and our objects highly influenced by these tools."

The result is very clean lines collection of furniture with the contemporary functionalist as well as fashionable twist.

In Ljubljana we met a lot of nice people who are interested in architecture very much, as well as many extraordinary buildings.

Ljubljana has very well preserved and rich architectural history from secession to contemporary creations. Here is only our brief view what we saw. Stay tuned! The second part arrived very soon.
