Leslie Williamson Photographs Constantin Brancusi’s Atelier

I better insert a spoiler alert before we begin today as I’ve once again raided the blog of photographer Leslie Williamson as she puts together the second edition of her handcrafted modern book. Now I really hope I’m not revealing too much that is to reach the final publication, I’m assuming these are really great outakes that Leslie has decided to tease us all with online. With every new …

Short Film on Sculptor Dimpy Menon

Short Film on Sculptor Dimpy Menon

We are lucky that each day we get the opportunity to come across so many diverse and exciting creatives, everyone has their own story to tell and a fresh perspective to share with the world. I’d like to introduce you all to a sculptor today who’s progressive persona really struck a chord with me, her name is Dimpy and she’s based in Bangalore, the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka. A passionate drawer from a young age Dimpy was …

Why people Love and Hate Le Corbusier

Why people Love and Hate Le Corbusier

Those that live their lives by strict ideals will always divide the crowds, to many Le Corbusier is the greatest architect that ever lived and to others his arrogance oversaw his talent. What cannot be denied or plainly ignored however is his contribution to global architecture and his legacy that continues to inspire and allure countless generations. Upon the 125th anniversary of Le Corbusier’s birth Swissinfo explore the background behind the …

Alpine Hut by Ofis Arhitekti

One thing that always puzzles me about architecture, or perhaps architects more specifically, is the way in which many firms present their projects online. You would have thought being design led in their thought process we would see an abundance of imagery and in this case short film that is aimed to really captivate the viewer and get them thinking why traditional housing has its flaws. This void makes photographers like Leslie …

Olga Bennet Photographs Kim Mckechnie’s Studio

Another great week begins and with it I thought we’d make a return trip to view the progressive portfolio of Australian photographer Olga Bennet. As many will hopefully know Olga is someone who’s work we have admired here in the past and it’s been brilliant to watch her talents flourish and mature over time. I thought today we’d highlight one shoot she put together for her recent series …

Furniture Designer: Taylor Donsker

Furniture Designer: Taylor Donsker

Believe me when I say we’ve seen a lot of craftsmen, creatives, designers and makers over the years and heard many, many stories. Some of these are regularly repeated and you very quickly develop a nose for who is regurgitating the same message and those with genuine drive and passion to create something completely unique. The character we came across this morning in that context falls into the latter bracket, I heard his …

Short Film on Brooklyn Glass

Short Film on Brooklyn Glass

I’m afraid there’s somewhat of an emphasis on the “short” element of this film today but it’s a project that resonated with me somewhat earlier so I felt it was worthwhile showcasing despite the fact. I’d like it to be a little longer and I’m sure after watching you will too, but it is what it is, and even though this is concise it’s still an insightful project that the Tumblr team have put together. Here we discover the workshop of Brooklyn Glass as a means of …

Short Film on Tobias Petri by Freunde von Freunden

As times passed and the Freunde von Freunden collective has developed it’s been a big inspiration to take in all the multi-talented individuals that they’ve interviewed the world over. When the project first began they didn’t have the opportunity to branch out of Germany all too often, so when you see they are connecting with “friends of friends” out in the Americas and as far as Mexico and …

Blueware Vases by Glithero

Blueware Vases by Glithero

I’m doing the unthinkable today by returning to the same creative who’s work we showcased yesterday, but before we get inundated with complaints I better mention he’s a filmmaker highlighting some really inspiring makers and shakers. Yesterday Petr Krejci introduced us all to the Czech collective that is Vyroben Olesem and today I thought we’d take a look at another collaborative project in his portfolio, London …

Short Film on Vyrobeno lesem Collective

When you sit and consider for a moment how many objects, foods and materials around us are synthetic it makes me feel a little uneasy, I don’t agree that price of something is where its real value lies. As time passes I feel myself moving more and more towards items with organic origins, I like to be able to sit comfortably knowing the background of the items that I spend my hard earned currency on. I’m sure if you’re anything like me it’s a real joy …
