    Glorious Pastel Drawings of Melting Icebergs by Zaria Forman.

    27th March

    Brooklyn-based artist Zaria Forman documents the realities of climate change in her glorious pastel drawings of melting icebergs and extreme environments. Apart from the fact that Zaria’s work is ridiculously beautiful, I’m most drawn to this sense duality she captures so effortlessly – her drawings have movement and stillness at the same time. They are both calming and eery. Divine and treacherous.



    Design Free Thursday // Accident Series by Zeren Badar.

    20th March

    Artist and photographer Zeren Badar has an intriguing way of creating compelling art. He does it by accident. Ok, so that may not be completely accurate, but as you see in this series of photos titled “Accident Series”, Badar explores a peculiar combination of photography, painting and collage to create new and unexpected images. In this photography project, he puts together unlikely combinations to generate a 3D feel with found objects, food and cheap old paintings to generate a completely new type of image.

    11th March

    American photographer, Autumn de Wilde has designed a pair of transparent and reflective jewel toned structures for a photo-shoot in the dry Californian landscape. Made of a combination of mirror and coloured plexiglass, images of the landscape are reflected on the structure, and the landscape is simultaneously cast with rose, warm gold and aqua tinted sunlight. The reciprocal exchange of colour, light and refraction are truly exquisite.

    Hanna Krüger Transforms Rosenthal Porcelain into Lamps & Vases.

    6th March

    The ‘Pila’ series, meaning ‘pile’ in italian is a unique and unconventional assemblage of different plates by German designer Hanna Krüger from the Rosenthal Studio Line. The design ‘Pila’ stacks china plates and transforms them into vases and lamps with reference from everyday life – where plate piles are created for pragmatic reasons, for washing up in the sink or stashed in the cupboard. The design also demonstrates that the clash of forms, stories and time can develop a completely new aesthetic dimension.
