Asserbo house by Christensen & Co Architects

Asserbo house by Christensen & Co Architects

The last two days I’ve been spending quite a lot of time dedicated to scouring Denmark to see what I can find in terms of craftsmen and women, be this ceramic, metal, glass, or wood workers so hopefully we can bring a few of these individuals to light here in the next few weeks. In the meantime whilst I was poking around the various creative networks in Denmark I landed upon this project by chance, a small holiday home that was built in …

The Art of Steam Bending by David Trubridge

The Art of Steam Bending by David Trubridge

We turn our attention now to David Trubridge, one of New Zeland’s most iconic and innovative furniture designers in an engaging short film I enjoyed watching earlier this morning. Created as a means to document the process behind one of the designers creations we are taken inside the company workshop and offered a glimpse of the Sling model being built which is part of the limited edition signature range. As you might of …

Alvar Aalto Studio Outtakes by Leslie Williamson

Alvar Aalto Studio Outtakes by Leslie Williamson

One of the main things that keeps me constantly captivated and inspired is the small network we’ve been lucky enough to generate here. I love the idea that once we’ve shared the work of someone that isn’t always the end of the line, I like checking back and seeing how creatives works have progressed, it’s good to know people are getting the rewards and opportunities they deserve. Leslie William …

Series of Antiques and Oddities from Factory 20

Series of Antiques and Oddities from Factory 20

I’ve always been somebody that asks questions, who likes to wonder why things have been made the way they have, so naturally I’m drawn to items that embrace an unconventional aesthetic. Which is why I was in my element this morning when I stumbled upon the ridiculously large archive of design objects and furniture curated at the factory 20 webpage. They are constantly creating an …

Architectural Photography by Richard Anderson

Architectural Photography by Richard Anderson

I’ve been scouring around the web for a little architecture today, with Andrew Geller from my last post sitting in the back of my mind. I enjoyed putting this piece together so much that I wanted to ensure I found something today that felt like it would present equal measure of ingenuity and design consideration whilst being original, I knew it was going to be a difficult act to follow. I’ve …

Ceramics by Christian Escajadillo

Ceramics by Christian Escajadillo

I’m not sure we’ve covered an individual from Peru before but that’s one of reasons I love using the platform we have, each day is a new lesson based upon the research of so many diverse, inspiring individuals. Christian Escajadillo is a ceramist I’d not crossed paths with before but his selection of stoneware and ceramic creations that are rather reminiscent of the early playful Bauhaus era really struck a chord with me, you don’t often see …

Archive Imagery from the Hadeland Glassverk Factory

Archive Imagery from the Hadeland Glassverk Factory

Putting together yesterday’s post on Andrew Geller and getting my hands on the vintage photographs was really exciting for me, it’s perhaps my favourite post I’ve put together here. So whilst I was in the process of compiling this I started thinking to myself, there must be so many archives out there with vintage photographs of other creative companies just waiting to be shared. I start …

Residential Series from The Andrew Geller Architectural Archive

Residential Series from The Andrew Geller Architectural Archive

We like unconventional thinkers here, the ones who think differently, who see possibility and disregard limitation. Mid-century architect Andrew Michael Geller fits snugly into this bracket with his experimental approach to architecture, having helped shape what we perceive mid-century modern architecture to be today. I’ve been lucky enough to get in contact with his Grandson Jake Gorst who …

Short Film on Eames Chair Creation

Short Film on Eames Chair Creation

I’m not going to lie, today has been somewhat of a frustrating uphill battle in the content department, we’ve found ourselves stockpiled with certain subjects and thin on the ground with others. Thankfully though I came across this great image of Ray Eames creating a selection of chairs that reminded me of a short film I watched not too long ago featuring a series of their seating being documented during the make. It was perfect …

Creekside Residence by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Creekside Residence by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

It’s pretty rare for me to get completely blown away by modern architecture, it’s often the likes of Richard Neutra, Philip Johnson, and Frank Lloyd Wright that are the go to for a little architectural inspiration, but this home built only five years back by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson stopped me dead in my tracks this morning, it’s incredible. For the mid-century modern enthusiast this house is about …
