Vitra FICTION “Remind Me” by Florian Böhm

Vitra FICTION “Remind Me” by Florian Böhm

Vitra recently released this short film directed by Florian Böhm and is titled “Remind Me”. It’s the first from a series of videos named “Fiction” which looks to tell domestic stories that could have happened to any of us. It shows how these much prized pieces of furniture either drives an action forward by being involved in a humans everyday life, or how they just sit back camouflaged and become part of the ever evolving scene. The video itself is nicely …

Ilmari Tapiovaara, His Life and Works

Ilmari Tapiovaara, His Life and Works

Today I decided to revert back to a video that I watched a few weeks ago produced by Artek which was an interesting introduction to Finnish designer Ilmari Tapiovaara. It got me thinking about his furniture and his eye for curves and fluidity, all of his pieces have a functional approach but at the same time they hold a real beauty about them. Ilmari was taught by many mid-century style masters, Alvar Aalto in particular where he work …

Set of Imagery from Renilde Depeuter

Set of Imagery from Renilde Depeuter

I felt I was well overdue a return to a set of photography so I’ve pieced together this selection from Renilde Depeuter who many of you may remember for her stunning mobiles we covered on the blog back in February. Initially I was just browsing around enjoying Renilde’s photostream over on Flickr and it took me a few minutes to twig that I’d seen her work previously. Today I thought we should focus more on her interior design skill …

A Look Inside Swedish Photographer Jonas Ingerstedt’s Home

Today I would like to focus your attention on this interior photography that I picked up from Jonas Ingerstedt’s portfolio, a well known Swedish photographer. Jonas seems to have a habit for moving house and the magazines have taken head of this, snapping away and featuring him on a regular basis whenever he moves, this re-location warranted Elle Interiör, a Swe …

João Canziani Photographs the Family Home of Architect Ray Kappe

Rummaging through the internet late last night I found myself admiring the work of two creatives in one project, the first being Californian architect Ray Kappe and the second photographer Joao Canziani. I actually found this wonderful set that explores the family home of Ray Kappe sitting within the arcives over at Dwell, which as always is the perfect stop for any design …

Case Study Imagery by Vitra Design

Case Study Imagery by Vitra Design

This morning I enjoyed having a browse through the Vitra website which always showcases some great furniture, I think they’re one of the better websites to have a look at and they seem to take great care over their web presence. Obviously inspiration isn’t always readily available on these more corporate sites due to the fact that they keep their photography shot in a professional studio with a white background, not …

A look Inside March Pantry Store, San Francisco

A look Inside March Pantry Store, San Francisco

First and foremost when hosting imagery of stores here on the site our bread and butter will always be menswear. Yet saying this we’re not ones to disregard the other beautiful lifestyle shops, like March Pantry in San Francisco for example which we’re taking a look inside today. I came across their webpage earlier this week and I’ve been throwing messages back and forth with those behind the store ever since, who I’d like …

Maison Louis Carré by Alvar Aalto

Maison Louis Carré by Alvar Aalto

Today I thought I’d bring over this imagery that I found last night thanks to my random perusing, it always leads me into good spots around the web. Usually I start with a designer of some sort, this time Alvar Aalto, and I head out with the intention to learn something new and end up finding an abundance of great imagery that I can showcase here as well. Luckily it comes with a great story, such as this post which is …

A Look Inside MR KITLY Shop & Gallery

A Look Inside MR KITLY Shop & Gallery

I’m always on the look out for fantastic photography and this selection seen above and below shot by Gavin Luke Green and Karl Scullin of the MR KITLY store in the Brunswick area of Melbourne, Australia really sets off the tone this morning. It’s a great little shop that I’ve had my eye on for quite a while, lovely mix of pottery, textiles, plants, basically a gallery of design orientated products. MR KITLY is owned and founded by Bree …

Architecture Photographed by Grant Mudford

Architecture Photographed by Grant Mudford

This is a prime example of two creative subjects coming together to form a great marriage, as seen here with this series of photography based on architecture by Grant Mudford. Incredible to see such great photography coupled with the admiration for the buildings themselves and how they’ve been designed, you really do see them in a whole new light. Grant is a Los Angeles based photographer who first studied …
