    “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.

    So Hot Right Now // White Tile Black Grout Interiors.

    You know, I’ve come to realise that black grout can be a perfect friend to a humble little white tile.
