    Natsumi Zama’s 2→3 Fashion Collection.

    24th July

    Japan-born London-based young womenswear designer Natsumi Zama holds a BA Honours in Fashion Design and Technology from London College of Fashion. Since graduating in 2009 Zama has launched her own fashion label while working as a freelancer machinist. Her most recent collection entitled “2→3” (two to three) is a series of garments that explore how material can be transformed from it’s two dimensional form to a three dimensional object. Each garment, when laid flat, looks as though it is mounted on a large expanse of square fabric, but when worn on the body this backdrop transforms into sweeping folds that dress the figure in pleats and fluted shapes.

    Avigdor 22 Event Space by Pitsou Kedem Architects // Tel Aviv, Israel.

    2nd August

    Avigdor 22 is contemporary event space, designed by Pitsou Kedem in collaboration with Dan Troim Architecture. Unlike the unfortunate images conjured up in my mind at the thought of event venues, at Avigdor 22 there are no hints of unnecessary frills, generic furniture, over-designed carpet, ceilings plagued with ugly bulkheads and predictable lame-ass lighting. No sir! This space is all about crisp lines, high ceilings, abundance of concrete and steel, with elegantly utilitarian furniture. A perfect place for a histper Bar Mitzvah…

    As Good As New pop-up shop by i29 // Amsterdam.

    24th October

    Well isn’t this just a little bit clever? You’re looking at a pop-up shop for a second hand Dutch furniture brand As Good As New. Located in one of Amsterdam’s super-cool fashion stores SPRMRKT (who’s owner clearly isn’t a fan of vowels), the project is a collaboration between advertising agency Gummo, Dutch studio i29 and Krimpex coating systems…

    21st September

    Hotel Mera Brasserie is located in a seaside town of Sopot in Poland. It was designed by a Polish studio LOFT Magdalena Adamus. What I really like about this place is the way it balances the serious with the casual. It is sharp and carefully put together, yet it remains easy and playful…
