Designs by David Ericsson

Let’s head to Sweden now on the content front, there’s a lot to admire in this part of the world, particularly when it comes to, yes you guessed it, design. I’m steering away from what you would typically expect me to be sharing today in terms of well established individuals or brands however, and instead I’ve opted to highlight an independent going it alone after homing his skills at the Carl Malmsten furniture course in Linköping.

Fray Leon House by 57 Studio Architects

Fray Leon House by 57 Studio Architects

I thought I’d begin the week with a slice of architecture as I’ve not come across too much myself since thursday’s film with the one and only Jen’s Risom. Today I’ve opted for more of a recent build with this contemporary design from Chile, created by architectural firm 57 Studio. I felt what really made Jens’ home was the careful selection of interesting objects around the home within quite an understated and simplistic house design …

What we …

Volga House by Architect Peter Kostelov

Russia isn’t somewhere that we’ve typically turned to in terms of showing architecture here on the blog, however I came across the work of Peter Kostelov earlier and was really impressed with the way he was using reclaimed materials within his projects. He’s a former winner of the International Architect Award and has claimed a great number of prizes in his own country for the way he is able to repurpose what has been cast aside by others …

Flow Gallery – The Spirit Of Things

Flow Gallery – The Spirit Of Things

When we aren’t working or creating it’s great to get ourselves out the office and take some influence from others through the medium of gallery exhibitions. The Flow gallery in Notting Hill, London which is owned by Yvonna Demczynska has been running a fantastic showcase recently titled the spirt of things that explores the crosscurrents between Japanese and Finnish crafts. Unfortunately this ends tomorrow so it’s not like …
