CB2 Furniture

In Product Design, Shops on January 2, 2011 at 1:51 pm

Just found this american company that sells really nice furniture and other things for the home. They have a nice website, really organized from where you can make your selection and place your order. I really want to be able to buy a house in a couple of years to be able to decorate it and settle down somewhere. Make it my own, have all my books, clothes, objects to my taste. The last 6 years have had a lot of moving around and this new year will be no different. Soon I will be returning to London…

An amazing Portuguese company that offers some of the most exciting designs I’ve ever seen. They describe themselves as emotional designers that explore their practice in a thin line between design and art. Handcrafted and handmade in Portugal the pieces have an enormous attention to detail being a feast for the eyes. The images shown here are objects and pieces from their limited edition collection. There is much more to see if you check their website. http://www.bocadolobo.com

Amsterdam

In architecture, Personal, Product Design, Shops on August 22, 2010 at 12:27 pm

Only spent a couple of days there but loved it. The streets are beautiful, everything seems to quite organized, the people are friendly enough, there are really nice cafés, restaurants and shops everywhere. Basically it is a place I would not mind living for a couple of years. The weather is quite cold, the summer almost does not exist but I don’t really like really warm weather either. Just sad we missed the tulip season. Can’t wait to go back and see more of what the city has to offer.

100 Chairs in 100 Days

In Designers, Product Design on August 20, 2010 at 10:21 am

An amazing project executed by Martino Gamper in 2007. He actually did 100 chairs in 100 days. The chairs were all made of old pieces or parts of chairs that had been thrown away. Basically scrap. The combinations can lead to quite surprising forms. And I’m guessing that seeing them in the exhibition must be quite grand. With a dose of imagination and piles of what could be rubbish this idea is quite inspiring. Next time you think about throwing furniture away think again.

Hand Crafted

In Designers, Product Design on August 20, 2010 at 10:15 am

Kevin Krumnikl makes the most beautiful hand crafted furniture I have seen in a while. The pieces have simple lines, are extremely functional and look strong and solid. One of these pieces would definitely change the dynamics of a whole room. Love the table with the places for the laptop and the magazines, as well as the record player piece. Actually I really like all the pieces featured here. Great work from a great craftsman.

The Bauhaus Archive

In Artists, Designers, Personal, Photographers, Product Design on August 19, 2010 at 3:07 pm

This was one of the must places to see in Berlin. The archives of the school I wish I had been able to attend. We did not go to Dessau to see the actual grounds but we went to the archives that are actually quite small. Nevertheless they are great and I felt like I wanted to bring everything that was part of the exhibition with me. I was not able to take any photos inside as we had a German lady with quite rude manners following everyone around shouting harshly no pictures, no pictures. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

Up In The Air Somewhere

In Product Design on August 14, 2010 at 4:43 pm

“Up in the Air Somewhere is Chicago-based artist and designer Susan Dwyer. Three years after graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she focused in sculpture, Dwyer began creating a line of ceramic and papier-mâché vessels inspired by the clean, minimal lines found in industrial architecture. The silos, warehouses and watertowers that dot the Chicago landscape are transformed into elegant vases, votives and planters. Because they are individually hand-built without the use of molds, every vessel has its own organic, one-of-a-kind character.” Text taken from the brand’s website.
