Knoll Space

This weekend I’ve been taking some serious inspiration from Knoll and a section on their website titled “Space”. It’s basically an interactive tour of inspirational residences which feature classic and new designs from Knoll, showcasing ideas on how to make the most out of your space. Knoll was originally founded in 1938 and the company is very much rooted in design, working with like minded individuals and …

Set of Imagery from Felix Odell

Felix Odell is a photographer who’s talents we’ve celebrated before in the past, so last weekend as I was looking for a little inspiration I took a revisit to his webpage to see what he had been up to. As always Felix didn’t disappoint and I’ve brought across a series of imagery he put together for Monocle not too long ago. The selection we have here highlights a beautiful home which sits within an isolated archipelago in …

North Bay House by Prentiss Architects

We couldn’t reach wednesday without a little architecture to satisfy our creative cravings, so I’ve sourced a recent build by Seattle based studio Prentiss Architects which will hopefully cater for everyone’s needs. This home is actually quite deceptive as it’s a lot larger than it looks here, I don’t however think we can criticise the studio for this, in fact it’s more of a compliment as the last thing you want a house to do …

A Look at the Latest Work from Poteet Architects

I’ve been keeping an eye out for a little architecture recently but until now I’ve yet to find anything that really stood out to me. So when I was browsing through our own backlog of posts I found a few leads and I came across this great selection of work from Poteet Architects who are based out of San Antonio, Texas. Last time we spoke upon Jim Poteet’s brainchild it was more focused around a single project whereas this …

Villa Nyberg by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

I can’t quite recall when architecture broke it’s way into our content here, but ever since it has felt right to compliment all things considered, like clothing or photography, with buildings that are a equally thought about, both in their values and quality. I think sometimes with design you stumble upon ideas that throws the norm on it’s head, getting you thinking why isn’t this new idea or concept the standard for all …

Admiring the Work of Architect Lina Bo Bardi

My recent post on designer Joaquim Tenreiro got me a little curious to the other great talents Brazil has produced, so today we are visiting the beautiful home of Brazilian born Italian raised Architect Lina Bardi. The home we’re admiring today is actually referred to many as the glass house, however I didn’t want to confuse anyone into thinking this was the work of Philip Johnson. I’m not sure if Lina took direct influence …

House R by Bevk Perovic Architects

I thought we’d move onto something a little larger in scale now, visiting the work of Bevk Perovic Architects and this beautiful home they constructed which has lots of quirky elements that I’ve not seen used much before. Given it’s being highlighted here I think we all know it was always going to have some sort of nordic or Japanese design aesthetic, and this home doesn’t disappoint with it’s simplistic shape and clean cut …

A Selection of Furniture by Bruno Mathsson

I’m positive you’ll all agree that we’ve had some absolutely stunning furniture featured on the blog over the past month, I’ve had a blast learning about all these different designers and their works. I’m not sure when it will come to an end, but it’s really intriguing to find out the history behind these beautiful objects and also the creatives thirst for knowledge and information regarding the “user experience”. I like to call it that …

They recently put together this special feature on their website about industrial designer, writer and architect James Walter which they titled “The Maverick of Modernism” and …

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 …

Richard Neutra Rang House Photographed by Iwan Baan

Richard Neutra has become quite the favourite of mine. He’s known for his clean lines, particularly in California where he came celebrated for his geometric but open structures. I think this inspiration came from his tutor in the early days, another inspiring figure, Adolf Loos who was known to have a radical, innovative outlook on life. He had a deep admiration for classical tradition and …
