Visual Acoustics, The Modernism of Julius Shulman

Visual Acoustics, The Modernism of Julius Shulman

So this is quite a tough post to write really, I’m not sure where to start. I’ve been on and off writing about furniture and such over the past few weeks but this particular one is more about a film and someones work, it was all inspired thanks to an interview I came across last night. The specific interview revolved around a different photographer that goes by the name of Pedro E. Guerrero …

We’ve been having a lot of fun lately searching up different pieces of architecture and reading lots of books about modernism in general. Obviously some of our favourites are past designers such as Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Eero Saarinen and the almighty Alvar Aalto. But obviously we’re not just restricted to what’s happened before us, there are plenty of great designers out there who’re producing some stunning residential architecture …

Tableware by Sue Paraskeva

Here you can see some beautiful creations by Sue Paraskeva, a potter and artist who’s situated in the Isle of Wight. I originally came across her a couple of months ago on Vimeo but I decided not to bring the video onto the blog because it had a crazy amount of views and I didn’t want to regurgitate the same content that was already across the web.

You may know them for one particular collaboration that took place with Alvar Aalto, producing a vase collection that was both fluid and organic, to this day they’re still mouth blown and it takes seven craftsmen working as …

I always go through a short phase where I can’t seem to find any inspiring films but usually some other type of content will satisfy my needs. Saying that, I came across this today on my hunt around the web and it instantly hit me that we’ve covered this fantastic duo before. Daniel previously wrote about this father daughter partnership, Lance and Nikole Herriott, who live quite a distance apart, with Lance residing in Victoria, British Columbia and …

Short Film on Heath Ceramics

Short Film on Heath Ceramics

We love supporting companies with integrity and substance at the core of their existence and Heath Ceramics in California fits right into this very mould. They’ve modernised the project started by Edith Heath back in 1948 to remain ahead of the current market without compromising the legacy Edith left upon passing in 2005. Today whilst browsing around their webpage I came across this short film on the company which goes a long way in sum …
