We used a bit of down time to update our feature on TRUCK Furniture, showcasing photos from our trip to Japan where we visited the workshop, showroom and cafe late last year.
Artist David Umemoto caught my attention for his bold sculptures that are made from concrete. These sculptures involve modular elements that come together to create full structures.

Daniel Mullen is a Scottish painter who currently works in Amsterdam, making works on canvas that have architectural repeating patterns and elements of deception and illusion embedded.
