One solid plank of wood from a 350-year-old Oak tree was used to create this very impressive 320x110cm table. Designed and created by Christa Braun and Christoph Braun from Berngau, Germany, Table 0007 is an awesome example of what can be done with a little vision and the right tools. The weight of this plank requires substantial support, yet the base does not overpower the top, in fact it is perfectly proportioned with the thickness of the slab. What an awesome table for either a dining room or a conference.

Krampon, or the house gripping the landscape, nestled on a rocky emplacement in Hyogo, is the one of the most ingenious projects made by Japanese architect Shogo Aratani. Clambering on the steepness of the scenery, this two storey venue is designed for an 11-meter change of level, front to back, is divided into a string of blocks staggering up the natural line of the hill slope. “We decided to place volumes along the sloped ground to minimise excavation,” said the architect. “We designed the spatial sequence in relation to the landscape by placing three volumes along contour lines.”
