Calligraphic Panel - Mughal Tile Work (by ||| Tammie)
A small portion of a larger calligraphic panel, this tile work is a technique that was mastered by the Mughals, and comprises individually cut-out pieces of glazed tile which were fitted together like a mozaic. Called ‘Kashikari’, this example is on the east-facing façade of the main prayer chamber of the Wazir Khan Mosque. It dates back to 1634 under the reign of Shah Jahan, but may have undergone sympathetic restoration some time in the 20th Century. Hairline cracks are now appearing on the white-glazed areas, but the thicker original cuts can still be identified, dividing the larger white areas into more manageable smaller pieces.

Spent the day working some new pieces into the shop. We’re exhausted, but it’s starting to look real good in here!

AKU    |    http://aku.co

"Starting with the idea that new, undiscovered music is like some rare animal,  the design is built around a tropical plant visual, created by young painter Eleriin Ello. Somewhat unexpected pink color and distinctive typography complete the identity, which was applied to a wide range of materials."

AKU is a design agency based in Tallinn, Estonia. They develop strategies, create concepts and implement solutions across different media. Their main areas of expertise lay in branding, packaging and designed environments. 

Starting with a simple “why?”, the work process always involves both research and intuition, aiming to provide meaningful, honest and surprising ways to solve the task. At AKU, they always encourage close, trustful relationships that are achieved through direct communication between the designer and client.

Modern Living: Green Living

Mamun Residence is a residential project completed by Shatotto Architecture For Green Living.

From the architect: Chittagong a southern city located in the tropical area of Bangladesh. the heavy south west wind flowing from the bay of Bengal and round the year scorchy sun are two major considerations for the design.

The use of layered parasols and gardens along with exposed concrete not only justify the climate, seismic situation and lateral load as context but also won over the structural system and elements of nature. Shatotto
