    I’ve been curious about Curiosity (boom-boom!) for quite some time now. So I decided to put an end to it and I looked them up… and – wah wah wee wah – what do you know – their work is totally awesome.

    Curiosity was established back in 1998 by French-born designer Gwenaël Nicolas. He has created everything from perfume bottles with Issey Miyake to store concepts for Uniqlo and high-concept installations for Lexus. You might recall that I blogged about Nicolas’ Crystal Palace creation in Milan this year called ‘Sparks’, an LED string of crystals which was my absolute favourite. You can check out my post here.

    Completely amazing work, right?

    By the way, there will be no post on Monday because of the long weekend here (hooray!), so I’ve decided to give myself a little break from blogging.

    C U Next Tuesday!
