Furniture Design by Marco Guazzini

Furniture Design by Marco Guazzini

Mark brought across some fantastic architecture yesterday from the good folks at Fujiwaramuro studio, I was especially impressed with their interior design and the general layout they opted for within the respective homes featured.

This latter element was some …

Assorted Imagery from Fujiwaramuro Architects

Assorted Imagery from Fujiwaramuro Architects

I thought I’d lighten up the mood after a busy holiday period, bringing with me a concise selection of imagery from Fujiwaramuro architects who’re based out of Osaka.

I found exactly the sort of project I was looking for out in the Japan …

Short Film Introducing Beam & Anchor

Short Film Introducing Beam & Anchor

As we pass through a period of good will and spirit, I wanted to showcase a short film I came across this morning that shares the story of a company that’s based around this very same community feel. Once again we are heading over to the creative hub that is Portland, Oregan as Matt Pierce introduces us to Beam and Anchor, the brain child of furniture reclaimer Robert Rahm who has setup a creative studio harbouring various …
