Mjolk visit the Nakashima Studio

I’m sure if you take inspiration from us on a regular basis you’re well aware of the work of John and Juli Baker who run the beautiful design store Mjolk in Toronto, as well as the Kitka blog following Scandinavian and Japanese creation. We’ve been admiring their work for a number of years now, getting the opportunity to exchange a selection of questions in a featured interview we put together with John two Decembers ago.

Architecture and Interior Design by Robert Mills

Architecture and Interior Design by Robert Mills

The great thing about this job is that you get to discover, you’re always learning fresh approaches, concepts, and ideals from all over the world. The blog is like a melting pot for us and I get a great deal of satisfaction from looking at how individuals on the other side of the world view everyday design. Today I’ve been on the browse for a slice of architecture and I’ve really been enjoying the work of Robert Mill who is a leading residential archi …

Short Film on Sculptor Richard Serra

Sara Flynn Exhibition at Erskine, Hall & Coe

I thought we’d return with a little update on Erskine, Hall and Coe today as they run a great deal of exhibitions that are well worth making a trip to see. They introduced me previously to the work of Mexican artist Gustavo Perez, which I highlighted to a few of you here, and today I was pleased to come across an artist working a bit closer to home, Sara Flynn who’s based in Cork, Ireland. Her exhibition at Erskine closes on Thursday so I …

Short Film on Wire Sculptor Rodger Stevens

It feels great to return to an artist, creative or craftsman and offer them a little further coverage, given many of these independents are on quite a personal journey with their work, it’s interesting to see what makes each one tick. I thought today we’d revisit the work of New York based Rodger Stevens who Mark highlighted previously, with many of us enjoying seeing his quirky and playful wire sculptures. I’d certainly not come across …
