One year ago...

We featured a costume for a fictional guerrilla protestor just as the Arab Spring protests were gaining momentum, while in Italy Karim Rashid completed the refurbishment of a subway station that disgusted our readers. One described it as "dizzyingly raucous, overblown, nauseating", while another referred to it as "a crime against humanity".

A house that lets the rain inside was our most popular story of the week, plus we started to look forward to the annual Milan furniture fair by revealing the robot-shaped shelving that Fabio Novembre was to launch and a chair of four wooden pads by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec.

The end of the week marked April fools day, when bogus designs for a giant statue of London Mayor Boris Johnson didn't trick too many of our readers, although a few actually wished the plans were for real.
