The Two Brothers, Erling and Egon Petersen

The Two Brothers, Erling and Egon Petersen

I went on a small furniture jaunt last night, checking out multiple design forums and blogs to see if I could find any new designers or interesting creatives. Usually I get a bit stuck because the internet doesn’t tend to document the more obscure individuals, they’re usually from Denmark or Sweden but it’s hard to find information on them and their work. A few times I’ve heard some designers names that have been placed on the …

Ceramics by Louisa Taylor

Ceramics by Louisa Taylor

I thought I’d bring some ceramics into the fold today as I’ve been admiring the work of English designer Louisa Taylor and her dainty porcelain creations. I think the finest compliment I can pay Louisa is that her works remind me an awful lot of the understated beauty found within Gwyn Hanssen Pigott’s works who is somewhat of a master of the art in my eyes. I really loved Louisa’s subtle approach to colour in these pieces her glazes …

The Long 8 Chair by Natanel Gluska

The Long 8 Chair by Natanel Gluska

This project was somewhat of a surprise for me this morning in that I was expecting one style of furniture and in the end I found myself admiring something completely different. Initially I stumbled across Natanel Gluska’s freeform chair constructed out of fibreglass, which reminded me a lot of some of the chairs that were being designed in the mid-century modern era. However, delving a little deeper into the project I found myself taken a …

Minuscule Chair by Cecille Manz

Minuscule Chair by Cecille Manz

Browsing around this morning I found myself enjoying this short film on modern day designer Cecille Manz, who I have to admit I’m not all that familiar with. I was however really taken with her Minuscule chair design and given that Fritz Hansen who put the film together offer her work alongside that of Arne Jacobson, Hans J Wegner and Poul Kjaerholm I was intrigued to learn more. Like these master designers before her Cecille has a consid …

Imagery from Mushimegane Books

Since we shared the short film on Bornholm based potter Anne Mette Hjortshøj last week I’ve been craving a good set of ceramics or pottery, and thankfully I found something I wanted to share with you all on that front just before the turn of the week. Typically we’re heading to Japan, however the creatives I’ve come across we’ve not featured here before. Mushimegane Books run a shop and exhibition a few times a year offering a range …

Made Here Series: Folk Fibers

Made Here Series: Folk Fibers

The Levi’s Made Here series is a project we’ve highlighted in the past yet until today I hadn’t noticed any further developments. I’m glad they’ve come through with another short film however as we get introduced to the talented Maura Ambrose who is responsible for Folk Fibers, a company she set up in order to market her handmade quilts in Austin, Texas. Like many creatives we’ve come across in the past Maura defined her business …

Recycled Furniture by Patrick and Regitze Kerti

Recycled Furniture by Patrick and Regitze Kerti

We’ve consciously tried to take a step back from the platform over the past few days and have really wanted to staple down the direction that we want to take in order to reach our end goal. Putting together the blog and shop has been an incredible journey for both of us creatively and the difficulty we’re sometimes faced with is keeping the fluidity of our message between the two entities. It’s just a case of reaffirming what we have in our heads so it …

Violin Maker Melvin Goldsmith

Violin Maker Melvin Goldsmith

At lunch we both came across this short video by Crane TV that really captured our imagination, it’s a piece which features violin maker Melvin Goldsmith. Melvin is a very talented man and made his first violin at the age of 12, his Grandfather taught him the ropes and happened to be a decent amateur violin maker himself. So technically he’s been making violins for for around 32 years which is quite astonishing if you ask me, and the pro …

Twisted Bread from Kinfolk Volume 4

Twisted Bread from Kinfolk Volume 4

We return to the creative collaboration that is Kinfolk magazine and their delightful supplementary content, with only seven day’s left until the fourth issue is released. Once again filmmaking extraordinaires Tiger in the Jar return to the fold to capture the recipe of avid foodie blogger Tara O’Brady and photographer Nikole Herriott who also makes up one half of the father daughter team that is Herriott Grace. If I’m being honest I’ve not …

Film on Danish Potter: Anne Mette Hjortshøj

Film on Danish Potter: Anne Mette Hjortshøj

It’s time to put the kettle on and get a little comfortable in your chair as this project, much like the art of pottery, isn’t for those in a hurry. If you do have spare time on your hands and an avid interest in seeing individuals create one of a kind objects however then you’re in for a real treat, as we visit the work of Dane Anne Mette Hjortshøj and her pottery studio courtesy of the good folks at Goldmark art. The short documentary provides …
