STUDIO NEWWORK: An Overview

STUDIO NEWWORK: An Overview

Being a recent graduate of a design college, I now have ample time to thoughtfully consider what drives me as an artist/designer/craftsman and how I want to practice design. The team at STUDIO NEWWORK understands their purpose, and their examples continue to inform my thoughts about how design should be executed. Ryotatsu Tanaka, Ryo Kumazaki and Hitomi Ishigaki, three graduates of the Fashion Institute of Technology, started …

Inspiring Lifestyle Photography by Cultivated Days

Inspiring Lifestyle Photography by Cultivated Days

I’ve been a bit cheeky today by pinching some inspiring imagery from another blog, the photography was that good I had to showcase it. The images come from a website titled ‘Cultivated Days’ that’s founded and edited by Prairie Stuart-Wolff. Interestingly Prairie, with the help of designer Tam Ngo, has been releasing online editions of the Cultivated Days magazine through the website …

Bottled History by Smith Journal

Bottled History by Smith Journal

A few days ago Smith Journal released a new video on their website and I couldn’t pass up the chance to showcase it here, there’s some fantastic up-close imagery and you get a sense of the making process. Plus, it only seemed natural after we showcased their last video on Rohan Anderson’s Smokehouse, both are well thought out and nicely directed. They’re also on totally different subjects, which is nice to see as you often find the same …

Marcel Breuer – Design and Architecture

Marcel Breuer – Design and Architecture

After receiving a few new books in the shop I decided to highlight one in-particular, that being a new publication by Vitra Design Museum titled ‘Marcel Breuer – Design and Architecture’. It’s a book that I highly anticipated myself as a lot of Marcel’s architecture has gone slightly unnoticed, we all tend to talk about his furniture but never his buildings. So this book amalgamates both, separating his work in to two sections and talks …

Handcrafted Modern Europe: At Home with MidCentury Designers by Leslie Williamson

Handcrafted Modern Europe: At Home with MidCentury Designers by Leslie Williamson

I have an exciting project to share with you all today, it’s by the one and only Leslie Williamson who’s been a big favourite here on the site over the years. Obviously, with a website that revolves around design, architecture, photography and the like it’s going to be hard not to be influenced by the creative life that she pursues, most notably highlighting iconic designers in her book hand …

Ceramic Work by Ann Jansson

Ceramic Work by Ann Jansson

It’s not easy for me to get blown away by design work anymore, I’m extremely picky with what I like and an object has to have a real story behind it for me to be enticed. I’m sort of bucking that trend today as I don’t have much information on this talented artist but I know her name and I’m equipped with some fantastic imagery, so I’m going to to try my best to convey what I think about these pieces. Hopefully afterwards you can make …

Carl Auböck, The Workshop Book by Clemens Kois

Carl Auböck, The Workshop Book by Clemens Kois

I know I’ve been a bit heavy on the Carl Auböck front as of late, it’s so easy to find inspiring stuff relating to the Auböck family, plus when you make objects like they do it’s hard not to showcase them to you all. One of the great things about owning this site is the amount of creatives and individuals I get to connect with, whether it be in person or through the internet. I regularly email Carl Auböck and …

Photo Preview of Rizzoli’s Rooftop Gardens Book

Photo Preview of Rizzoli’s Rooftop Gardens Book

We are quickly amounting a great number of books here in the office, in fact we often joke at the need to open our doors up as a library. So today I thought I’d share something as a nod towards New York based publisher Rizzoli who are responsible for many books on our shelves. Leslie Williamson’s handcrafted modern is one of these, so with this delightful release as a reference I thought we could all take a look at …
