One year ago…

At the start of 2011 two of our most popular stories were about sex toys. New online brand Made to Pleasure invited customers to customise the shape of their toys, while designer Marc Dibeh designed one that discreetly tucks into the side of a bedside lamp.A few designers started to look forward to the imminent wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton by designing unofficial commemorative plates, and a group of students constructed an igloo-shaped pavilion from cardboard hoops.Meanwhile, a wooden house filled with bridges and platforms sparked a debate about safety and we revealed images of a Maggie’s Centre designed by London architects MJP.We featured a flexible wooden stool that readers thought might bruise or pinch their bottoms, a pair of lamps that each hold one end of a fluorescent tube and then rounded up the week with a set of medieval teapots.

This week on Dezeen

(7 years ago)
This week Peter Zumthor’s memorial to suspected witches put to death in Norway captured readers attention, while David Chipperfield was confirmed as architecture curator for this year’s Venice Biennale and rapper Kanye West announced plans to launch a design company.We featured shoes disguised as toucans, swans and ducks, as well as a set of two-faced tableware and an unusual house with a pebble-filled garden and roof terrace behind its walls.Readers debated whether an underground extension to an Austrian museum bore too much of a resemblance to the Louvre in Paris and the new London headquarters for Google engineers were compared to spacecrafts, the Big Brother house and German youth hostels.Over on Dezeen Screen we brought you interviews with designers from our micro-exhibition Dezeen Platform, whose projects included a bicycle that plays records when you ride it and a factory for making bricks from soil and seeds.Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for regular updates and discussions throughout the week.More architecture stories | More interior stories | More design stories |More Dezeen Wire |More watches | More movies
