This floor (and home) of Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm architects is just magic. Understated furniture allows the existing features to retain their prominance. Simply done, with a lot of thought. Found here
Some of you will be well aware of Luli Sanchez, the inspiring fabric designer. Her hand painted dots, stripes and geometric patterns are a favourite of mine. Apart from these she has a wealth of other works. I would love to create a range of fabric designs, all hand drawn. Here are a few of my favourites, but a visit to her site is a must to see more of her work. Click here.
Coming full circle, this phone cover by industrial designer Richard Clarkson marries mechanical and digital technologies to construct a case reminiscent of the origins of the phone. It is beautiful to look at with its steampunk edge. Unfortunately it only seems to be a prototype though, lets hope they go into production. I think I could give up my touch screen for a dial.
A quick share, as I should actually be on my way out to a shoot already (very exciting, will tell you more about it later). But I had to first show you this gorgeously styled collection of items. They are from the catalogue of Olsson & Jensen inredning, found via the CaledonianMEC

Enjoy the image overload, they are all so great I had a tough time limiting them. Its on my to-visit list for my next trip to Cape Town. Interior designed by Haldane Martin, found at Visi.
There is a lot going on at the moment, all very inspiring. One of the things that I am working on is a few hand drawn designs. Variations on the traditional herringbone, stripes, diamonds and even a figure ground is thrown in for good measure. Below are a few close up details of some of the designs. I can't wait to have them made up into all kinds of things...
I grew up in a home where there was a workbench in the garage that was in frequent use. I was often called upon to hold things and help. Whether it was cutting through large pieces of timber to make something special, or just fixing things, there was often a project on the go. Today these crafts are still special to me. These pictures are by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm architects, taken on his visit to the shop of designer Jacob Langebæk. Found here
