    “What Happens in Buddhism Stays in Buddhism” Furniture Collection by 56thStudio.

    22nd July

    It’s cool y’all – chill. Yellowtrace hasn’t become a blog about Buddhism. We are still all about crazy cool design and “What Happens in Buddhism Stays in Buddhism” is nothing more than a little bit of left-of-field thinking wrapped up with clever design which we hold so close to our hearts. Bangkok based 56thStudio is a creative collective that deals with quirky design and cutting-edge graphical matters. According to these guys, a piece of furniture can be inspired by and conceived from the strangest circumstances – even from a scandal. Their latest series “What happens in Buddhism stays in Buddhism” takes it’s cue from a story of a Buddhist monk who turned out to be a monumental crook.

    Damage Playground Store in Rotterdam.

    4th June

    After running a successful online store for a year, brothers Alexandre and Anibal Furtado opened this monster cool menswear store called Damage Playground in Rotterdam. A combination of lifestyle and art, it’s difficult to tell where the product placement ends and the art begins, when in fact there is no clear boundary. The minimalist design has a gallery feel, with canvasses, projections and prints meshing perfectly with the neo-mannequins.

    Real-Life Tetris Sculptures by Michael Johansson.

    22nd May

    Michael Johansson is a Swedish installation artist who takes OCD tendencies to the next level with his real-life Tetris sculptures. His passion for ordinary and useless things organised into exceptionally good-looking piles makes most neat-freaks look like the biggest slobs. Johansson is obsessed with irregularities and coincidences between to disparate objects which may only be linked by a common colour or a shape. On a more practical level, I bet this guy is excellent at stacking dishwashers, packing car boots and fridges. Yes!
