Hand Blown Glassware by Sempli Design

How about we add some superb glass tumblers and vessels into the mix today. I’m a big admirer of functional items that serve a humble purpose in day to day life, often the ones we take for granted and that slip in to the back of our mind without a second thought.

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. My little jibe with Japan continues as I’ve been coming across a variety of inspiration from that part of the world, the consistent ideology that seems to influence Japanese designers and craftsman alike is very …
