Mario Dal Fabbro Sculptures

I have to say, when I came across these sculptures by designer, writer, craftsman and sculptor Mario Dal Fabbro they really did blow me away, I took an instant liking to them. I also enjoyed the imagery and close-up details, all of which were taken by Maison Gerard where they’ll be holding an exhibition and opening reception in New York on the 22nd of February to the 30th of March, 2012. As I started to delve into the …

Stephen Kenn: The Inheritance Collection

I had heard about this project previously through other websites but when I came across the video last night on vimeo it really blew me away. Absolutely stunning filming by The Process Collective who made this piece on Stephen Kenn and his newest project “The Inheritance Collection”. Stephen, formerly of Temple Bags, has basically created a set of furniture that is sourced and made locally in Los Angeles using re …

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 …

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 …

Mathieu Matégot Works Photographed by Cédric Buchet

I decided we’d start the week with a little blast of design inspiration from the past, visiting the work of multi faceted designer Mathieu Matégot who today presents us with these clean cut and minimal pieces of furniture. Yes, once again I’ve brought across an individual that no longer graces this earth, however I found this series really inspiring and I thought we should all celebrate …

Maruni Autumn 2011 Furniture Collection and Project Interior Shots

This morning I decided to bring across some imagery from furniture company Maruni’s website, my last post on the Maruni Collection by Naoto Fukasawa in early 2011 was very popular but this one offers up something different. It’s a selection from the website’s catalogue for Autumn 2011, basically showcasing two new styles that they’ve added to the collection. One being the …

Furniture and More from Sit and Read

Sit and Read has been a place to check on the regular for many people, becoming extremely popular amongst the furniture savvy in the last few years. If you don’t know already, this company was founded by Kyle Garner who when working in New York in 2007 as a production designer couldn’t find space to store all of the props and furnitures for his sets. So he decided to start selling them to clear out space and as word …

Discover by Herman Miller

As you probably know we’re heavily inspired by furniture, it’s such a technical medium, to get it right takes a lot of steps in terms of shape, structure and aesthetic. Not only that but it also has to be extremely functional and will need to fit the proportions of the body or it will have to adapt to the owners lifestyle changes, lets face it with a chair one size has to fit every user to the best of it’s ability. You can’t make …

Finding Home Film by Muuto

So this short filmed piece from Nordic design firm Muuto is perhaps a little more lighthearted than traditionally shared here on the site, but thats not without noting the beautiful design at the core of this creative project. I actually really enjoyed this piece as their team got inventive with how they could showcase their collection of furniture and other home based products, I’ve not seen anything like this used before …

The Artek Open Archives

My loved ones over Christmas were kind enough to buy me several books that I’ve been yearning for over the past year, firstly ‘Dieter Rams: As Little Design as Possible’ which I’ve yet to dig into, and also ‘Alvar Aalto, Through the Eyes of Shigeru Ban’ which is one I’m currently reading. Even though it’s extremely long, a few paragraphs into the book and it got me thinking about his career and what influenced it, a company …

Works by Irish Furniture Designer Joseph Walsh

I’ve decided to bring across something a little more contemporary than what we’ve regularly been looking at here on the site, as I was really taken aback by the shire craftsmanship and vision that furniture designer Joseph Walsh presents through his creations. Founding his studio in 1999 Joseph has worked hard to craft his own creative path, self teaching himself everything he knows while pushing the boundaries …

Imagery of Hans J. Wegner & his creations

Not too long ago Mark brought across some really beautiful looks at the work of internationally celebrated Dane Hans J Wegner, so I thought it would be a little while yet until we’d be visiting his work again. However I was browsing through a few of my favourite destinations on the web earlier and came across these charming photos that I hadn’t seen shared elsewhere, so I couldn’t resist snapping them up. They basically …
