thum_pool-house-icrave.jpg
This spectacular pool house was commissioned by a home owner who wanted to transform the outdoor area at his house into a contemporary pool and spa retreat, ideal for entertaining in the hot summer months. The weekend retreat is located in the Hamptons, and was idealized by design studio ICRAVE, the result is a modern wood and steel structure with two separate spaces, creating a luxurious indoor/outdoor oasis. It features a bedroom, and a spa that includes a sauna, shower, and hammam. A sunken level between the two rooms creates a cozy living room, with fireplace, and a Jacuzzi, making this the perfect entertainment area.

thum_icicle-ice-bucket.jpg
Cleverly conceived by designer Rodolfo Dorandi, the ingenious Icicle Ice Bucket solves the annoying and recurring problem of melting ice in the traditional ice bucket. Icicle cleverly slows the melting of the ice by separating the ice in the upper half of the elegant glass vessel from the slowly accumulating pool of water below. This icy illusion is achieved thanks to an inverted interior that separates the ice cubes from the water as it melts.
