Short Film from Just So

Short Film from Just So

In terms of commercial reach Adidas are of course one of the largest in the world, so it’s natural for us as independents to stray away from the work that they do. That’s not being critical, just being honest. Today however at risk of sounding like a hypocrite I wanted to support a project they’re undertaking through London based agency Just So as they go on a quest to uncover raw creative talent. This perhaps sounds a little tacky on the surface but …

Further Imagery from Freunde von Freunden

Further Imagery from Freunde von Freunden

I’ve really been craving a great set of photography recently so I thought it was about time I dropped in on the Freunde von Freunden website as they never disappoint on this score. True to form their archive has been replenished with lots of mind-blowing shots, they seem to have ventured out geographically too which is fantastic to see, collaborating with so many great creatives in the process. Mr Brian W Ferry mentioned back in …

Set of Imagery from Industry of One

Set of Imagery from Industry of One

I’ve really enjoyed the Industry of One webpage over recent months so as a nod of appreciation to the work that Adam Patrick and Rachel Brown undertake I thought I’d bring across a small set of photography which features a few familiar faces. Although their initial context was to accompany the dedicated interview of these individuals, I felt these worked really well together in a set especially from a men’s style point of view. A few of you may …

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 …

Selection of Work from Akio Kamiya Architect & Associates

Selection of Work from Akio Kamiya Architect & Associates

Browsing over the portfolio of the Akio Kamiya studio earlier today I was really blown away by the way they’ve transformed a traditional Japanese aesthetic to incorporate modern elements. These projects I’ve brought across today really optimise why I get so inspired by architecture, the combination of structure, texture, lighting and unity within each builds environment is simply breath …

Collection of Works by Woodturner Jonathan Leech

Collection of Works by Woodturner Jonathan Leech

I thought we’d stay in England for this post as I’ve just come across a wood turner based in Cumbria who’s work I think lots of you will appreciate. Jonathan Leech has set himself a solid foundation as an artistic woodturner hosting many of his creations in local galleries, forming a healthy relationship with the National Trust in the process. Skimming through his page I was really impress …

The InBetween House by Koji Tsutsui Architects

Built as a mountain retreat from the hustle of Tokyo this “InBetween” home designed by Koji Tsutsui architects sits flawlessly into it’s surrounding topography and neighbouring culture. Constructed using locally sourced and prepared larch wood Koji Tsutsui opted to incorporate traditional Japanese wood construction methods in the build. This way local craftsmen where able to skillfully create …

The Art of Making by Heath Ceramics

The Art of Making by Heath Ceramics

I always seem to be landing on the Heath Ceramics webpage so why it’s taken me this long to bring across an article from them is a little beyond me. There’s no time like the present to resurrect this however which is why I’ve raided their “Art of Making” section as a little nod to the work that they’ve been doing since 1948 would you believe. Not only do Heath produce some mind-blowing pottery and ceramics they’re really open to shar …

Dustin Cohen Photographs Watchmaker David Sokosh

Dustin Cohen Photographs Watchmaker David Sokosh

I had planned to bring across the latest development in Dustin Cohen’s Made in Brooklyn film series, but since this has already broke elsewhere I thought we’d focus in on a little of his photography instead. Many of you may remember the first episode which followed violin maker Sam Zygmuntowicz, a project that I thought Dustin was going to find hard to better. He has however …

Porcelain by Taizo Kuroda

Porcelain by Taizo Kuroda

My mind is always brought to debate when I see Japanese ceramics and pottery as I’m often baffled by their ability to craft something that is equally clean and pure as it is rich in substance and character. Perhaps it’s the Japanese’s inherent connection to perfecting each process which brings out such beauty, but in my humble opinion I’ve seen few better than this collection we’re sharing today, created by Taizo Kuroda. With …
