    Carl Kleiner’s Exhilarating Colour Compositions for Herman Miller.

    8th May

    Stockholm based photographer & stylist Carl Kleiner is well known for his unique take on colour and geometric compositions. His most recent project was to create a series of lively abstract collages for furniture brand Herman Miller. Ka-pau! Aren’t they just awesome? If this doesn’t convince you of the importance of colour in product design, then I don’t know what will.

    Restaurante 560 by João Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos // Lisbon, Portugal.

    5th October

    Completed in 2009, Restaurant 560 occupies 80sqm of an old building’s street level in Lisbon’s city centre. The interior is divided into three disctinct zones – the shopfront and entry, dining space in the middle and a service area at the back. What I really love about this interior is the way the entry is celebrated and treated as it’s own event – there is a definite transition from the street, through the entry, into the restaurant. I also love the unusual mix of marble, raw OSB, and super beautiful, ornate and glossy wall tiles which provide an arresting visual crescendo at the end of the space. The committed use of these three contrasting materials gives the restaurant a very unique edge…



    Very Visual Vases // Design Trend.

    3rd September

    I remember a time when all vases used to look the same. Or pretty similar at least. You could almost predict their shape. Round or cylindrical – straight up and down, tapered at the top, or maybe flaring out, possibly faceted if the designer went a bit nuts smoking the silly stuff.
