If you like that Lautner house , you should check out this book http://m.taschen.com/pages/en/catalogue/architecture/all/04404/facts.julius_shulman_modernism_rediscovered.htm
of Julius Schulman photography which feature some amazing houses . he's most famous for the iconic photo of the Pierre Koenig house which overlooks a nighttime LA from the hills Ubercool

not sure how long your kitchen run will be, but the Hawa Concepta door mechanism opens out like normal and then folds and slides the doors back out of the way. The system is expensive but would keep your kitchen area concealed.

£600? must be a typo..

They're called flipper/pocket door slides.

It depends if you're having large doors to move or not. the Blum pocket ones say max 6kg door and they show it in the catalogue being used with a small cupboard door, whereas the Hawa can take up to 50kg doors.

pricing-

It's looks like an over-engineered system, but it runs smooth. Have used them once before with doors that were 25mm thick MDF and 2.8m tall, so probably a good 20-30kg(?) & have a job coming up using them soon which reminded me of this thread.

might be able to get the guy designing to make something similar up, but it needs as tom said to be for big doors which would way 30kg upwards I am sure.

Fed up of my desk and need an upgrade for something a bit bigger and nicer looking.

Does anyone know where I can get a nice piece of black wood (no homo) to sit on these http://goodhoodstore.com/store/5723 ?

I used to live on the same road as one of his properties but Homewood in Esher is Patrick Gwynnes masterpiece It's owned by the national trust so sadly only open to members Sad

That is so nice, please notice the use of curtains which def. is coming back again. Mies used to use curtains aswel.
Just bought my first lounge chair from vitra last week. Sold our AJ egg. My missus hates the lounge chair, so I got
her a slow chair from the bouroullecs brothers. Also ordered the LCW and the nelson bench a few other bits, so pretty
happy. Only thing is we have to let go of our PK22´s as we have no room for them.
