Global Garden Report 2010

In the fall of 2009 Kairos Future set out on a journey, together with Husqvarna and Gardena, searching for the holy grail of gardening. The result: The Global Garden Report 2010. What is gardening all about? What do gardeners do, think about, live for? What is at the heart of modern gardening in different parts of the globe? Those were the questions that global garden equipment brands Husqvarna and Gardena were looking for answers to. The mission of the journey was to find the drivers, passions, and expressions of modern gardening, as expressed by those who care the most – passionate garden lovers. To find true garden lovers, the trend scouts chose the driver that is reshaping the world more than anything else: the social media landscape. Here passionate garden lovers express their worldview everyday in hundreds of thousands of blogs and blogposts.

Floristic Art:

International Trends of Floral Art

After the successes of the three previous editions of International Floral Art, the fourth edition is bound to be another massive hit among florists and flower lovers. The aim of this biannual publication is to give a state of the art of innovative floral art in the world. Stichting Kunstboek’s internationally renowned network of floristry schools, master classes and floral designers vouches for hundreds of entries. The 2010-11 edition assembles personalities and creations that display the rich potential and variety in floristry today.

Topic Special Offers/Nice Price/More for Less:

For Example: ‘Michel Pastoureau: Black – History of Colour’

Black is just as white a non-color. However, this could not stopp the career from black. On the contrary. Once priests and widows dressed black, today architects, designers, creative people often prefer black as dresscode. Minimalism and reduction (Less is more) have strengthened this trend towards the renunciation of colors. Michel Pastoureaus follows the historical tracks of this trend. We have some copies with some shortages for you on offer: Michel Pastoureau: Black – The History of a Color (now 25.00 instead of 42.00 euros).

Light + Building / Luminale:

International Lighting Design Index 2010

ildi1Ed. by Helmut M. Bien, Markus Helle
• The first professional guide for the international lighting design scene – appears every two years
• Roundabout 100 current projects for urban spaces, buildings, shopfitters and night life
• Almanac with industry-related information about designers, manufacturers, fairs, exhibitions, awards

Light is a 21st century building material. New technologies that precisely control light and are economical into the bargain are opening up unimagined design potential. The urbanisation of the world, ecological challenges and worlds of work which stretch across time zones demand an architecture of light. Architects, designers and artists become the directors of light: they see buildings and spaces as three-dimensional media which tell stories. The dream of an immaterial, ethereal architecture is receiving fresh sustenance. The book presents the players who are marking out current international trends with their light concepts: for office buildings, in urban planning as well as for cultural buildings and urban night life.

The authors are Helmut M. Bien, curator of the Luminale – Biennale of lighting culture and Markus Helle, editor in chief of the journal “Highlight”.
