The Piet Indoor Stove by Fredrik Hyltén-Cavallius is a fireplace with a brass reflector that burns ethanol fuel and not wood, therefore will not give out smoke.

TBWA/Santiago Mangada Puno, Makati City, Phillipines won the Bronze Press Lion for this “Flowers” campaign for Pacific Paint (Boysen) at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival . These print ads were created to celebrate the achievement of Boysen being the first and only paint company in the country to receive an ISO 14001, a significant contribution to the company’s vision to be the greenest in South East Asia. Using high speed photography, the design team employed strobe lights, water pumps, endless splashing techniques, a shower head, mixing bowls, and Boysen Paint to create delicate and dramatic forms of exotic flora.

Designed by Knoend.
